I just wondered why the hazard disappeared. ??? Is it because it was boring or useless or unmemorable?

I actually would love to see it come back. Perhaps the last team to arrive at a TBC gets a Hazard, or being used in a way where another team can forced the other team member to complete the Roadblock as well? I know some of you don't like how a team can decide the fate of another in a race... but honestly, it's good drama and the race isn't all fair anyway.

And I'll use the Hazard on myself if my team member gets to skydive and I only get to watch... :funny:

The problem with the Hazard is that it is literally the exact same as a Speed Bump. Besides a difference in when it was applied, there was nothing to distinguish it from the existing Speed Bump.

I'd much rather see the American version adopt the Handicap.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

i agree with the Handicap.. but I belive the Hazard is more like an extra roadblock (only 1 person did it haha)

But the Handicap sounds so... lame. I mean, can we have a better name for it? :(

What if the hazard was brought back with as U-Turn/Yield type think. Example: Team A gives the hazard to Team B so Team B must to do an extra "Hazard" task
