Title: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Jobby on December 14, 2011, 09:30:36 AM
I always thought that if we had a thread like this, we can come together and discuss the endless possibilities that could happen on the race if an event didn't occur... could the ultimate ending of the race be affected?

For example, if the cab drivers of Ernie and Cindy, Jeremy and Sandy and Amani and Marcus cab drivers didn't share the info with each other on the penultimate leg, will Andy and Tommy still make the final three? Who would be eliminated then?

If Leg 1 of TAR 19 was a non-elimination leg and Bill and Cathi were eliminated, which other leg will become a NEL and which team will then make it to the Final 5?

This is completely for fun and the purpose of this thread is that it is completely pointless, but that doesn't mean we can't come together and discuss/share thoughts and opinions and what could probably happen if a particular scenario didn't happen/happen on the race.

Here are some other thoughts that came to my mind -

1. What if the train attendant came and check Ernie and Cindy and realize that they didn't have tickets? Would they have been thrown off the train/continued with their journey/forced to pay their tickets OR receive a penalty at the pit-stop?

2. What if Jennifer didn't wait too long and waste time at the Malawi leg Roadblock? Would they still be eliminated or will Jeremy and Sandy meet their doom?

3. What if Liz and Marie had money, managed to make it to the pit-stop in Bangkok in 7th place? How far do you think they could have made it further in TAR 19?

4. If Jeremy and Sandy didn't lose too much time at "The Dump", do you think they had a chance in winning or will Ernie and Cindy still beat them to it?

It's an endless of possibilities and discussions... just post some What If questions, try to answer your own questions and see if others think the same way as you do!

I love this! :cmas16 Brilliant idea!

What if Kynt & Vyxsin U-Turned Nate & Jenn? (TAR12) :cmas4

My Answer: Nate & Jenn go home, and Kynt & Vyxsin probably make the Final Three over Nicholas & Donald. I'm not sure how they'd do with the memory challenge though. :cmas5

What if Azaria & Hendekea weren't given those business class tickets? (TAR12) :cmas4

My Answer: I think they'd win the race!

What if Jen (of Kisha & Jen) didn't stop for a bathroom break? (TAR14) :cmaslol

My Answer: Jaime & Cara go home, but I don't know if Jen & Kisha would win. :cmas5

What if the four teams (Flo & Zach, Teri & Ian, Aaron & Arianne, Michael & Kathy) did not put Diesel fuel into their cars? (TAR3)

My Answer: This whole season could possibly change completely, as Michael & Kathy and Aaron & Arianne probably wouldn't go home on the two Morocco Pit Stops.

What if Uchenna & Joyce did not take the risky flight connection? (TAR11) :cmas4

My Answer: Oswald & Danny would go home :cmas4 and I wouldn't bet against Uchenna & Joyce from that point on.

I'm really gonna enjoy coming up with more! :cmas16 :cmas22

What if Uchenna and Joyce didn't make the flight in TAR7 finale? I can answer that, it = boring end with Romber winning.

What if Jet and Cord had figured out the VR task?

What if both times BJ and Tyler came in last in TAR9 had not been NEL's? Fran and Barry may have made the F3.



What if Azaria & Hendekea weren't given those business class tickets? (TAR12) :cmas4

My Answer: I think they'd win the race!

Me too!!

What if Jen (of Kisha & Jen) didn't stop for a bathroom break? (TAR14) :cmaslol

Epic finale!!

Apparently, it is not the bathroom break that killed Kisha and Jen but the taxi driver dropping them at the wrong place.. further away from pitstop location.

Jaime and Cara might still make it.. or maybe a footrace. ???

Awesome questions, Prophet!

Here's an interesting couple regarding one of my favourite bickering couples of all time:

What if Victoria had thrown her backpack like Jonathan said, during the footrace in Germany?

What if Jonathan & Victoria took the correct number of donkeys?! :cmaslol

If Uchenna and Joyce did not make it to the flight in TAR7 finale, then I guess it could have been the worst finale ever shown, as opposed to one of the best.

I am not sure if Jet and Cord figured out the VR task they will win or not, but what I'm sure is it will ensure a tighter and closer race.

I'm not sure about Fran and Bary making the F3 because they may still stumble upon a NEL at F4 or get eliminated at F4 in Thailand. But I guess one thing for sure if they were eliminated, Eric and Jeremy will WIN the race for sure and result in a snoozefest. Don't think Fran and Barry can beat Eric and Jeremy in the F3.. just my opinion.

What if Toni & Dallas and Zev & Justin had not lost their passports on TAR13 and TAR15 respectively?

My Answer: I'd put Toni & Dallas in the Final Three, knocking Ken & Tina out, and I'm sure Toni & Dallas would finish second, at worst. As for Zev & Justin, they could've made it quite far on TAR15 as well!

Rob & Kimberly would have been marked for elimination, but since they came in first in the next leg and Dustin & Kandace last, it would not have change anything I think :cmas5

I think they probably would, especially because Teri & Ian and Joe & Bill were eliminated after being so far behind and Uchenna & Joyce made their flight mistake. But if they had won TAR11, at least it would've been better than Eric & Danielle... :cmas11

What if Victor had not gotten Margie and Luke to Uturn Amanda and Kris?

What if Amanda and Kris had not been Auto Uturned in TAR18?

What if Tammy and Victor did not Uturn Kisha and Jen? = Bathroom break and taxis don't matter?

What if TK and Rachel had not been Speed Bumped in Leg 9? = Nathan and Jennifer going to the F3.

All good questions!

Amanda & Kris were such strong competitors that they could've made it very far on both seasons, if it hadn't been for those U-Turns. How far exactly, it is hard to predict.

As for the Kisha & Jen U-Turn - they definitely would've survived, assuming that 'Chinese Waiter' Detour took a fair bit of time. :cmas5

I think Nick and Starr would still have won. Don't really think Toni and Dallas can beat Nick and Starr. They ran a flawless finale leg.

As for Tammy finding the bean, will result in Weavers eliminated. Then they will go to the F5 with Bransen stumbling on the first NEL, with that.. the Paolos get hopelessly behind on the F5 leg. So if the Gaghans can beat the Paolos.. they will advance to the F4.

Then there will be 2 NELs at the F4 and anything can happen. One thing for sure... we'll see the Gaghans for a much LONGER time than Weavers. :cmas29

And I just realized, TAR 8 had like "5 NELs/TBCs/Continuous legs"... why can't they have another one at the F6 or on the first leg! :cmas28 Instead of having a NEL and a TBC at the F4!!

I will disagree with you both. Yes, Rob/Kimberly would have finished last in AR10 Ep. 11 at the Berber camp and become Marked for Elimination. That would have given Rob/Kimberly the necessity of making up 30 minutes on a DETOUR and possibly influenced their choice of which option to take and probably how quickly they finished. Could they have made up 30 minutes against any of the other teams? I don't think so.

If Linda and Karen had not been NEL in Leg 5 they would not have made such a long run. Instead that NEL could have fallen to Charla and Mirna in Leg 7. They had their lowest finish that day and proved they could go to a final in TAR11 so they might have again.

I don't remember Victor being the reason Amanda and Kris were U-TURNed. I am very sure Margie and Luke wanted to get rid of a stronger team. With such strong teams in TAR 14.. I'm not sure if Amanda and Kris would have made it further than F7.. but I'm pretty sure they will win at least a leg... not sure if they will win because the teams were really strong in SEASON 14.

If Amanda and Kris were not auto U-TURNed, Ronald and Christina will be the first team eliminated. (Pretty sure, unless they really suck at directions to the pitstop) Which I'll loathe as I like Ron and Chris. Again, I'm not very sure if they will make it far.. because people keep deeming them as a strong team but look, they fell far behind enough to be U-TURNed by Margie and Luke, they solved the starting line clue last, reached the first pit-stop in second only to lose the lead because they couldn't find the sign-up list and ended up on the 2nd departure time. Let's just say their luck either sucks or they're not good racers after all.

Again, the U-TURN is too far in front of the episode to decide whether they will survive. I think they might, but they were actually before Jaime and Cara at the Roadblock anyway and still lost their lead.

True, but if they finished first, their 30 minute penalty would not apply. Assuming they chose the 'Lob It', I'm pretty sure that they would still finish first, in which case they would not be penalised. However, if they went with 'Lug It', they would definitely have gone home. :cmas16

Prophet, the key word here is convinced. The problem is, if Margie and Luke didn't think so themselves that Amanda and Kris were a strong team they wouldn't have bothered to U-TURN them too. Victor may have his own opinion but I guess Margie and Luke can see from themselves that Amanda and Kris could have been a strong contender and decided to use the U-TURN to put them out of the competition.

I am very sure that if they did what they did for the entire leg they would still come in first. But with the 30 minutes penalty they MIGHT have gone with the boys and BQs to do the slower yet harder detour. That might seal Rob and Kimberly's fate like the BQ's. But I think Rob and Kimberly might still finish ahead of the BQ's but still eliminated because they did not come in first and receive 30 mins penalty.

The final leg of TAR 10 is designed in such a way that if you're not physically fit, you probably won't win. (I read it somewhere, can't remember.. they have to run to different locations blocks away) There was no way Bama could have won even if they made the final location along with Rob/Kim and Tyler/James! (Unless they got some super cab driver or what)

But if Tyler and James taxi didn't have the pass, it might have resulted in a close finish between Tyler and James and Rob and Kim!

Joab's 4th item on his original list was:
4. If Jeremy and Sandy didn't lose too much time at "The Dump", do you think they had a chance in winning or will Ernie and Cindy still beat them to it?

I think it could have been decided by the taxi drivers going from Turner Field to Swan House, but the probability is that Jeremy/Sandy would have won if they maintained a 20 minute lead getting to "The Dump" (Margaret Mitchell version). Ernie was much slower than Sandy on the typewriting ROADBLOCK, so let's say that Jeremy/Sandy would have gained 5 to 10 minutes additional lead. given Jeremy's good performance, they would have lost only 5 minutes of that at Turner Field. given an equal time for the taxi ride to Swan House, that would have given Jeremy/Sandy the win by 20 to 25 minutes.

What if TK and Rachel had not been Speed Bumped in Leg 9? = Nathan and Jennifer going to the F3.
How is this possible? The SpeedBump (running through fireworks and being doused with water) was easy and did not take up much time, but it did take some time. The lack of that only would have improved the position of TK and Rachel in AR20 ep. 2. They probably would still have been second, only behind by a smaller margin. It would have had no impact on Nathan/Jennifer being eliminated. Prophet, what is your logic on why it should have changed the outcome of this leg?

There was an interview which said J/S arrived an hour and a half behind Ernie and Cindy. I'm not very sure whether J/S lost all those time solving "The Dump" but i'm not sure if they would have won... but definitely there would be a much more intensive race rather than a one-sided finale.

How is this possible? The SpeedBump (running through fireworks and being doused with water) was easy and did not take up much time, but it did take some time. The lack of that only would have improved the position of TK and Rachel in AR20 ep. 2. They probably would still have been second, only behind by a smaller margin. It would have had no impact on Nathan/Jennifer being eliminated. Prophet, what is your logic on why it should have changed the outcome of this leg?

If TK and Rachel had not been Speedbumped, they would have made the train anyway?? I am with apskip here... Nathan and Jennifer would have been eliminated with or without TK and Rachel's Speedbump. Their demise was due to them getting lost, if my memory did not fail me.

What if Lyn & Karlyn went to the right airport? Would they arrived before Tyler & James? Would they have tickets for the flight and not T/J? Would they have the good T/J taxi, beating Rob & Kimberly and being the first all-female team too win? :cmaslol
Lyn/Karlyn were second before the clue to fly to New York City was received. That is when they elected to go to Paris-Orly Airport. If they had gone direct to Charles de Gaulle instead, they would have gotten into the queue for a full flight behind Tyler and James, who got confirmed seats before it was full. That means it is possible that neither Lyn and Karlyn (who were not as charming as Rob and Kimberly) nor Rob and Kimberly would have gotten on that flight. The victory would have been sealed for Tyler/James at that point. If they did get on that flight it would have been either a 2 team or 3 team race. I don't see Lyn and Karlyn getting the smooth journey that Tyler/James did to the news building, on foot to the statue and then in a taxi to Garrison. Tyler and James would still have won unless there was differential taxi karma.

That would be impossible because I don't think they have done a F3 NEL ever since TAR 9. :cmaslol Just my opinion.

Especially before the start of TAR 12 we had rumours that there wasn't even going to be any NELs and it will be completely a short race. That was why TAR 12 remains till today to be the only season with the shortest route, filmed in the shortest days (I THINK) and only 2 NELs at F4 and F5. That's why I think it is impossible for a NEL to be placed at that point and only 3 teams remaining to go into Taiwan. That will make the race completely boring for that 1 hour episode.

If Lena and Kristy had not had so much trouble with the haybales in TAR6 they may have not been eliminated there. Also perhaps that task would not be considered interesting enough for a Switchback.
The effect this missing task would have had on the final five of TAR 15 has many possibilities. Another team could have faced the NEL on that leg and/or been eliminated in the next. If the Globetrotters were eliminated there Brian and Ericka would not have survived the final elimination, sending Gary and Matt to the final.

Prophet, you need to read the first post again if you don't get the point of this thread. The purpose of this thread is to post a What If situation, and then anyone is able to discuss on whether on not the What If scenario would have made sense or not. If you have a problem with it, I suggest you stay clear of this thread because a lot of people will be commenting on different scenarios and possibilities that will probably challenge the What If situation.

I said Uchenna and Joyce probably wouldn't have quit the FF because Joyce is determined to do the task for the team without having a second thought, thus challenging the What If situation proposed, do you have an issue with that? :cmas29

I propose this scenario that if Uchenna and Joyce didn't catch the flight on the finale, Romber would have won the race. That COULD have happened because it's a either OR situation.

But saying Joyce wouldn't have shaved her head when she did it without a second thought is like saying.. What If Gary and Mallory didn't join The Amazing Race 17.. would they have made it to Unfinished Business in third place? Because that is a fact which we can't deny. They did the race, got asked back for a second time and tada, there's not a What If situation proposed here. So let's just say.. that question about Joyce not doing the TAR 7 FF is a bad question. :)

I believe Carol and Brandy MIGHT survive the Singapore leg and make the FINAL 4 then. If they manage to beat Dan and Jordan who were in third place for both the China F4 legs, then I think they might go into the F3 with Brent and Caite. Then the brothers might be eliminated and Jet and Cord may win the race. :cmaslol (And then they won't be ask back for Unfinished Business) and another team will fill their spot for UB probably.. endless possibilities! :cmas27

And also, do you think Mika will be able to complete the RB both Maria and Tiffany cannot do and make the F5?

What if FRANZ wasn't so hard to order? Who would have won TAR 15?

Franz actually wasn't hard to order. With 5 letters and one of them specified (by Dan giving Herb the first letter being F) there were only 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24 combinations of the letters R, A, N and Z. Do any of these sound like names in any language:
FRAZN
FRZAN
FRZNA
FRNAZ
FRNZA
FARZN
FARNZ
FAZRN
FAZNR
FANRZ
FANZR
FNARZ
FNAZR
FNRAZ
FNRZA
FNZAR
FNZRA
FZARN
FZANR
FZNAR
FZNRA
FZRAN
FZRNA

I think that none of these 23 remotely sounds like a valid name. Only "FRANZ" does.

However, in the spirit of Joab's design of this thread, let's assume that Herb could have solved this soon enough to get to the pit stop and avoid elimination. That means that if Dan had given Herb more information or Herb had solved it himself Brian and Ericka would have been eliminated instead of Nate and Herb. In the finale, the rappel done the side of the Mandalay Bay Hotel would have substituted Nate and Herb for Brian and Ericka (who finished first). The chip counting exercise would almost certainly have caused Nate/Herb to have difficulty and take a bit longer than the other 2 teams. They would most likely have been stuck in 3rd place at the Finish Line and there. So my guess is that Cheyne and Meghan would still have won and Sam and Dan finished 2nd

If Kaylani and Lisa are first gone, that means there might only be one elimination in Indonesia (most prob, production will tweak it i'm sure with no more double elimination). So it's still 2 teams eliminated at the end of Indonesia leg 1. That means Ethan and Jenna MAY have survived. Anything after that is completely random I guess.

Joab I like this thread!!
I've actually thought about this question, in fact if Mika and Canaan survived the Dubai leg, they would definitely pass Tiffany/Maria and make F5.  Even they were last in Stockholm for a NEL, I think they could still survive since Gary/Matt lost time in finding the Candelabra in Tallinn, but it could also be them finding it quick since they would arrive at the same time with other teams.  So in that situation, either team may make F4 instead of Globetrotters and then would beat Brian/Ericka in Prague as they lost too much time (don't know why) in Prague. However in the end I think Meghan/Cheyne would still win since they are too strong!!!  :cmaslol

Here are some other thoughts:

TAR 10 - If BQ did not get lost in Morocco, they would finish 1st in that leg leaving Rob/Kim NEL. Though R/K got 1st in Barcelona now, I am not sure if they would still choose the same detour if they were marked for elimination. They may act like BQ and choose the physical detour as well. In this case Lyn/Karlyn would get 1st and R/K eliminated. Then Tyler/James and BQ would fight for the million dollars (L/K cannot run as fast as them) in New York but T/J still got the advantage.

TAR 16 - If Brent/Caite did not u-turn Carol/Brandy, C/B would probably u-turn the cowboys making them eliminated in Singapore. And I am sure Michael/Louie would be eliminated in Shanghai anyway since they were not good racers at all. So Dan/Jordan, Brent/Caite and Carol/Brandy would make the final and judging from the tasks in finale I think anyone could win it.

I think if the Singapore u-turn is a w-turn, the result would be like this!!

TAR 19 - Even Jeremy/Sandy did not lose that much time finding the Dump, I still think Ernie/Cindy would win the Race. That may be a closer race but since Cindy is clever enough to call Atlanta Tourism Board for directions, that means they would not waste a minute in finding the Dump and would catch up with J/S. I have to say calling tourism board is really a brilliant idea and it contributed A LOT to their win, even Andy/Tommy made the final they would not be able to beat E/C because of this reason. So now I hope the producers would ban future racers to do the same which made the race more exciting!

btw, whom did Nat/Kat call in TAR 17 finale to find the studio? Is it also the tourism board?

My question:

TAR 18 - What if Kent/Vyxsin did not incur penalty in Switzerland? Would they make the final or win?

I think they would beat the Globetrotters in Brazil provided that they also made the 1st train, and so they would make F3 and I am sure their edit would be completely different this way!

I doubt Kent and Vysxin has a chance to win even in the final three... if they were not eliminated, then Zev and Justin would be. I don't know who would be eliminated in the Final 4, but it could be them or Globes.

Regarding Zev/Justin not losing the passport (as that's one of my favorite "what-ifs") I think they'd have made the final 3. They probably wouldn't have won, but they'd definitely be on an All-Stars. In fact, I could see them coming back for a third time if there was another All-Star retread or something. After the Cowboys got U-Turned in TAR 18, Zev/Justin or Gary/Mallory were the fan favorites.

As for Lena/Kristy making it further had they not messed up at the haybales, I really don't think they'd have made it much further. I mean, Don/MJ would've been out next instead of them. They maybe would've made it to the Final 7 or Final 6 at best but I don't think they'd make it any further.

I'll pose a few...

What if the Cowboys didn't get U-Turned in TAR 18?
What if Ernie/Cindy had U-Turned the Boarders in Malawi or Denmark?

The cowboys were already in last place, so, it would probably not change anything.
If E/C utured A/T in Malawi, they would came in first place for shure. But in both case (Malawi and Denmark) the boarders would not be eliminated.

Quotes from Nat in a Reality TV World post-race interview:
 
"make sure that you do your research at the airport at your departure location so that when you arrive to the leg, you have some phone numbers and you have some basic information."

"we had gathered some information about Los Angeles tourism bureaus and visitor's centers and informational centers, so we had a bunch of numbers in our notebook, so we just phoned... a tourist center and we asked her to help us out with the locations and we asked her to use her computer to get us the information."

"We actually even called 411 for a couple of things about Greystone Mansion. So we just kind of used the tools that you would normally use in everyday life -- just being resourceful..."

What If Linda & Karen got to the F3?? Do you think they would have had any chance? The fight would have been against Chip & Kim and Brendon & Nicole, so it wasn't that hard in a footrace to the finish line after a flight.

What If Monique & Shawne had survived Leg 3? Do you think they could have done waaay better, or just F6 at most?

What if Eric & Lisa had run an entire leg, would they have had any chances to stay in the upper half at the end of the race?

What if David & Jeff had taken the same flight as the other two teams in the F3 of TAR4? Would they have won?

Linda & Karen probably would have struggled with the tasks in Canada though not nearly as much as Chip & Kim. If they were slow enough, they might have arrived at the airport late enough for the early flight to be cancelled. Let's say Chip & Kim arrive in Dallas the same time. Chip & Kim struggled with the maze, I think it was something like 45 minutes. So the Bowling Moms possibly could have gotten first if they knew a good maze techinque.


I can't remember why Kelly & Jon missed the flight from Hawaii to the continental US, was it because they went to the wrong terminal? I don't think David & Jeff would have made that mistake. They probably wouldn't have figured out the puzzle, so it depends whether they or Reichen & Chip arrived at the stadium first. I'm speculating that David & Jeff would have been faster on the bikes, but I doubt it was long enough of a ride to make a difference if they made it there second.


How about some first elimination what ifs? What if:
Gina & Silvia beat Derek & Drew?
Avi & Joe beat Gus & Hera?
Ryan & Chuck beat Ron & Kelly?

Season 10 was a special case because they eliminated one team (Bilal & Sa'eed) at a surprise mid-leg elimination point (the overnight rest in the Forbidden City) and then another (Vipul & Arti) at the end of the leg.

What if there had been no mid-leg elimination in TAR10? Would Vipul & Arti still be eliminated at the end of Leg 1? How far would Bilal & Sa'eed make it?

What if Eric & Lisa had been on Unfinished Business? How would they have done?

I'm very sure both Vipul and Arti and Bilal and Saeed won't last long.

Eric and Lisa seems like Lance and Keri-ish and most probably won't last long or make the final 6.

About the TAR 4 finale, I think that if David & Jeff and Reichen & Chip had met in the stadium sometime, if D/J didn't get the answer they'd just copy the other teams to find the clue.

And the bikes would have made the difference, IMHO. I think they could have done it, really.



Yes, I meant Monique & Shawne! :D I also loved Monica & Sheree.



Gina & Silvia beat Derek & Drew?
Avi & Joe beat Gus & Hera?
Ryan & Chuck beat Ron & Kelly?

I don't really think Avi & Joe had what it takes to make it further. When I first saw them, they had a 9th-Place style of running the race.

Gina & Sylvia, I think that is the kind of team that if it makes it to the finals is mostly because of luck and other teams' mistakes. I didn't think they were really good either.

About Ryan & Chuck, yes. I thought they'd do better. Definitely, when I started watching TAR7, I never thought they could be the first team out. Surprise!



What if Mel & Mike had used their Fast Forward in Phukhet?

What if Luke had found the tea cup faster? F3 again?

What if Hope & Norm hadn't been eliminated in Leg 2? I felt they could have gotten furhter...

What if the cowboys got to the U-Turn in TAR18 before the twatters? Would they have U-Turned them? Would the Twatters be eliminated?

What if Mel & Mike had used their Fast Forward in Phukhet?

What if Luke had found the tea cup faster? F3 again?

For the first one, Kisha & Jen would go home :cmas4 and then Mark & Michael leave in the F5, because they had too many penalties. Then, Tammy & Victor would probably U-Turn someone else (Margie & Luke or Jaime & Cara, probably the former) and Mel & Mike would make the F3, unless they had as much trouble finding the U-Turn as Jaime & Cara did. In the F3, they would probably start out behind with the physical pig-carrying task, but they might've been a decent chance at the memory challenge! :cmas16

For the second one, the Globetrotters would've gone home in India, and then Rontina would leave next. :cmas4 Gallory get the Speed Bump in Austria, but Jet & Cord most probably still go home in Switzerland, because nobody shared their answers with them. Then Kent & Vyxsin would leave in the second Swiss leg (assuming they still made their same mistake) and Zev & Justin in Brazil.

We have a Final Three of Gallory, Jen/Kisha and Margie/Luke. It's probably going to come down to who has the best taxi, but personally (in my completely unbiased opinion :cmaslol ) Kisha & Jen would still win, since they seemed to be really fast at assembling their mobile home! :cmas16 Hard to say for sure, though.

Kris is probably a faster runner than Kendra. If the time difference we always hear is how far apart they arrived at the train, Freddy & Kendra would have had enough of a head start I believe. If the ~45 seconds includes the time waiting for the train, Kris & Jon might have passed them.

Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Glamazon Racer on December 19, 2011, 07:34:35 AM
What if somebody had used the U-turn in Season 13 (assume both U-turns)

In Bolivia, I'd assume that the only possible U-Turn would've been Nick & Starr U-Turning Kelly & Christy, or Aja & Ty doing it for them. In this case, the girls would go home and Mark & Bill would live on. :cmas5 Mark & Bill weren't the most athletic team, but they seemed to be a strong/decent team, so they might've been able to get to the Final 5 or 6, but probably not further.

As for the second U-Turn, which was unaired. If I remember correctly, this was on Leg 9? :cmas5 If that's the case, I could only hazard a guess at Nick & Starr U-Turning Ken & Tina or Toni & Dallas just to try to get rid the stronger teams. However, given Toni & Dallas's passport error on Leg 10 (and since Leg 9 was a NEL) this U-Turn would not have been a crucial game-changing moment.

Let's take this (slightly lengthier scenario):

What if Lorena :kisses could just milk that goat :cmaslol and she and Jason finished in a much higher position on Leg 3, and then on Leg 4, Shana & Jennifer realised that the only team behind them at the Detour was TK & Rachel, and used the U-Turn on them?

It's pretty hard to say definitively, but how would you guys think the rest of the race would work out from this point? :cmas5

Nathan and Jennifer VS Ron and Chris? :cmas5

To answer my own question from before, I'd actually have thought that Lorena & Jason might've made the Final Three. They seemed a decent enough team, and their only problems on Legs 1-2 was navigating. However, the only self-driving on the rest of the race was Legs 5 and 7 (aside from the driving Roadblock on Leg 9) and on those legs, it would be quite difficult to get more lost than Shana & Jennifer and Kynt & Vyxsin respectively. :cmaslol

It's hard to judge a team who only raced 4 legs, but Lorena & Jason seemed stronger than the likes of Shana & Jennifer, Kynt & Vyxsin, Nicolas & Donald and maybe even Nathan & Jennifer.

Maybe I'm just being hopeful, but I would've thought they had the capabilities to give Nathan & Jennifer and Ron & Christina a run for their money! :cmas5

New question:

What if Flo & Zach did not tell Ken & Gerard about the location of the Roadblock clue on Leg 11 in Vietnam, and thus Derek & Drew made the Final Three instead of Team Oh Brother? Do you think they could win? :cmas5
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Best Loser on December 19, 2011, 12:32:07 PM
It all came down to who got the taxi first outside the Space Needle. If I recall from an interview, Flo & Zach went out the exit closest to all the taxis despite arriving last. I still think they would have won regardless of if Derek & Drew were in.

What if Derek & Drew and Ken & Gerard had spotted the route marker right away?
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Glamazon Racer on December 19, 2011, 08:50:27 PM
Then Flo & Zach would go home, and once again, it would come down to the taxis, so either Derek & Drew or Teri & Ian would have won! :cmas16

This would be very interesting, because I read somewhere that Terence & Sarah made the mistake of flying via Moscow to Kazakhstan, and thus when it come to decoy running, they were not allowed into the country (someone can double check). If you go to Wiki,

Quote
Leg 11 was the final leg of The Amazing Race 13. The five sequestered teams arrived in Portland, Oregon, where they checked in to a hotel and were reunited with Terence and Sarah.

They would have easily made final 3 otherwise, and probably would have given the other two teams a run for their money.

Both Brook & Claire and Toni & Dallas would've been quite formidable on Unfinished Business. I envisage that they would safely overcome the Australia legs, where Amanda & Kris would go home, and in Japan, Jaime & Cara would unfortunately leave. :cmas4 This means that Zev & Justin are most probably gone in China, unless the new team struggled at the dinosaurs? :cmas5 I think Margie & Luke would still be eliminated in Kolkata, as Luke seemed to struggle with the tea.

From Varanasi onwards, it is quite difficult to predict what would happen, but I imagine that Brook & Claire would stand a good shot at Final Five or more, and maybe Toni & Dallas as well. :cmas5

What if Gallory had beaten Nat & Kat in Oman? How does the rest of the race work out? Who uses the Double U-Turn in Bangladesh and who goes home? Who leaves in South Korea? And who will win, in your opinion?

What if Louie and Michael choosed to uturn Steve/Allie instead of Joe/Heidi?

Steve & Allie seemed intelligent enough to solve the Morse Code, but if that Detour cost them a lot of time, then they might have still been eliminated on Leg 6 instead (with Jordan & Jeff leaving on Leg 5).

What if Terence & Sarah did not attempt the Fast Forward in Kazakhstan, and did not waste time by going there? Would they beat Andrew & Dan in Kazakshtan, and since Toni & Dallas lost their passports in Russia, would they win the Final Leg?

This would be very interesting, because I read somewhere that Terence & Sarah made the mistake of flying via Moscow to Kazakhstan, and thus when it come to decoy running, they were not allowed into the country (someone can double check). If you go to Wiki,

Quote
Leg 11 was the final leg of The Amazing Race 13. The five sequestered teams arrived in Portland, Oregon, where they checked in to a hotel and were reunited with Terence and Sarah.

They would have easily made final 3 otherwise, and probably would have given the other two teams a run for their money.

What if Mel/Mike had been replaced by either Brook/Claire or Toni/Dallas for Unfinished Business?

So that was why Kelly and Christy were heavily doing decoy business and even filmed in the process? :cmaslol

I think Terence and Sarah could have given Nick and Starr a good run for their money AND even win. They should have been on Unfinished Business, or Ken and Tina.

I'm actually okay with Mel and Mike. But Amanda and Kris... Zev and Justin??? -.-

Teams who didn't make it past the F6 should not have been even considered for Unfinished Business! :cmas10

What if each season only allowed TWO TEAMS from TAR 12 - TAR 17 and a total of 12 teams chosen, which two teams from each season do you think would have made it?

My own personal choice would be -
Ron/Chris and Kent/Vyxsin - TAR 12
Ken/Tina and Terence/Sarah OR Toni/Dallas - TAR 13
Jaime/Cara OR Kisha/Jen and Margie/Luke - TAR 14
FT/BE and Brian/Ericka OR Maria/Tiffany - TAR 15
Carol/Brandy and Jet/Cord - TAR 16
Brooke/Claire (who sadly can't make it) and Gary/Mallory - TAR 17

This could have been an epic cast. Of course about 7 teams got chosen from above.. I just wished they didn't pick teams like Zev/Justin, Amanda/Kris and Mel/Mike (am fine with Kisha and Jen) but went with some of my picks above. Especially TAR 13! It may have been a really boring season but hey... they have good teams!

Season 6 Leg 6.
What if the Hungarian National Water Polo Team actually tried to stop a goal and made more then just a splash.  Maybe Guss and Hera would have survived the leg. Freddi and Kendra would have lost, and the entire ender would have been different.

This leg always killed me, after the screwy first half of the  now super leg, we have the odd Detour int the second half.

If my memory is correct, it was a choose between scoring two goals against the Hungarian Olympic Water Polo team. Or Paddle across the Danube river. Guss and Hear, astutely in my opinion, thought it would be way to hard to take on an Olympic Water Polo team. Everyone else chose Polo and the Olympians barely splashed them. All the other teams finished it super quickly, and Guss and Hera found themselves behind and were eliminated.
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: apskip on December 20, 2011, 02:44:14 PM
Gus and Hera did not take long to cross the Danube. What killed them was that on the other side I believe they were further away from the pit stop than the other teams and, most of all, they started the DETOUR in last place.

Well, they might still have been in last place but the Speed Bump would definitely have been there for them (or for whichever team came in last).  But Michael & Kevin would probably still have been eliminated due to the fact that Reading is Fundamental -- and they failed to realize that.

Interesting one! I think Gallory might have struggled, but they'd definitely beat Jaime & Cara, who took several hours, if I remember correctly.

Then the rest of the race probably would'nt have any significant changes, as there was an equaliser on the next leg anyway.

Bransen or Godlewski MIGHT win. I think. It's going to really shake things up. Sometimes I do wonder if teams who won in the end.. what if they didn't get a lucky break from near elimination. For example Linz, or Dan and Jordan for several times, Chip and Kim, Flo and Zach, Chris and Alex, BJ and Tyler, Eric and Danielle, Tammy and Victor, Nat and Kat... they are all teams who had a lucky break!

Luke said that he could have and would have used the second U-Turn in Beijing, racer, because he still had his team picture/sticker to put on the U-Turn board.

The other seasons might have changed the rules though, because Louie & Michael said something once about making the other teams think that they could still use the U-Turn in the post-Blind U-Turn legs, although it could be that they either lost their picture or they were not very smart when it came to gameplay.

That's really interesting! I thought maybe that teams had to hand their 'Courtesy Of' Photo to Phil at the Pit Stop, or something along those lines (if they used a Blind U-Turn). I find that really intriguing that teams could potentially use multiple U-Turns! :cmas16

EDIT: Might as well add a new 'What If' Scenario: :cmas16

What if John Vito & Jill made it to the first Pit Stop in Ecuador (on TAR11) ahead of Kevin & Drew. Assumably, John Vito & Jill would've been able to survive the next leg (just my opinion) and they were a decent team on TAR3, so how much further do you think they could make it on TAR11 if they survived Leg 1?

(By the way, I find it really funny how they got eliminated twice due to navigational difficulties. :torche

The Blind U-Turn may be ressurrected at some point, but it has faded into irrelevance after AR14 because it has not been part of the design for any seasons. World Race Productions seems to have put the focus on Double U-Turns instead.

The last time a blind U-TURN appeared was in TAR 16. It survived for 3 seasons from TAR 14 - TAR 16 and all 3 times it was used.

After which I guess starting from TAR 17, the producers focused on the Double U-TURN, which I thought added more drama and intensity to the show and >>> Blind U-TURN.

What if Bill and Cathi did not get lost on the leg they got eliminated and Marcus and Amani were eliminated. Do you think they could have made the final three if their cabbie shared info just like Marcus and Amani's cabbie? :cmaslol And what are their chances of winning against Ernie and Cindy?

Yeah, I remember heading something like that during TAR15, but I didn't remember exactly. Looks like we both learnt something really interesting today, apskip! :cmas16

What if Uchenna & Joyce didn't make that costly blunder to Malaysia? Would they have made the final 3?

The chances are good for them. Oswald & Danny would definitely finish last in Malaysia (just like that TAR15 Blind U-Turn, I remember reading that the Malaysia leg was originally planned as a NEL, but I may be severely mistaken). Oswald & Danny did great with the flights to Hong Kong and claimed the Fast Forward, so assuming they still manage to do so, this will remove their Marked For Elimination penalty. And also, Eric & Danielle would go home (and we would have the best Final Four of all time, in my opinion :cmas16 ).

Then in Macau is where this could become interesting. Assuming that Oswald & Danny still have their financial troubles, Dustin & Kandice can't tell them to Yield Eric & Danielle any more, as they are gone. Assumably, they will want to Yield Uchenna & Joyce, who are strong former-winners. However, due to Oswald & Danny's many struggles of that leg, they will finish last and be Marked again.

On to Guam, and that Guam leg - which was quite enjoyable - offered little chance for teams to make huge blunders, unless they really had problems operating the GPS locators. So I'd assume Uchenna & Joyce would survive and Oswald & Danny would go home.

And then the Final Three would be Uchenna & Joyce, Dustin & Kandice and Charla & Mirna. And with that exceptionally weird Final Task in San Francisco (one of my least favourite tasks of all time, personally) it would be quite difficult to predict a winner!

Of course, my scenario might be extremely different to what would actually happen, but these are my thoughts, and I have to thank redskevin88 for a GREAT question!!! :cmas16

A question of my own:

What if Jet & Cord were sent home in The Seychelles and the next leg (Malaysia) was converted to a NEL instead? Do you think that Steve & Allie could possibly go on to replace Jet & Cord in the Final Three, given the U-Turn in Singapore and Louie & Michael's struggles in China, and if not, who do you think will be in the Final Three instead? :cmas16
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Jobby on December 24, 2011, 11:23:15 AM
Yes racer, I believe if Jet and Cord were eliminated and that the next leg in Malaysia was a NEL.. Steve and Allie would have a huge chance to survive since Carol and Brandy were goners in Singapore. You can't go "wrong" in a leg like Singapore where the locations visited are so "touristy" and there is no way a team can get lost in Singapore. As for the tasks they had then, there were all no brainers, setting up an ice cream stall was a very viable option to just do and move on while the drums (the other side of the Detour) may or may not be easy to conquer but Carol and Brandy had to do a U-TURN anyway. The Roadblock was easy as hell... and there was definitely no way that Steve and Allie can't beat Carol and Brandy thanks to the really "unfair" U-TURN.

Then Louie and Michael are so going to be eliminated at the F4, leaving Steve and Allie to compete with the brothers at the final three. :cmaslol

I think that if Nancy & Emily had switched Detours instead of just giving up after losing the Fast-Forward to Bill & Joe, they would have still been in the Race as Team Guido got complacent and arrived after everyone else had arrived!  Then Nancy & Emily might have had a chance to beat Kevin & Drew and make it to the Final 3, but they would have needed to switch Detours early enough to have much of a chance to catch up to the first two teams.

Post by: Glamazon Racer on December 24, 2011, 07:32:34 PM
Great question, Belle Book! :cmas16

I'm going to try to break this down leg by leg:

Leg 1: Nothing changes, Diedre & Hilary go home.

Leg 2: So now Blake & Paige would go home instead.

Legs 3 & 4: Peggy & Claire and Shola & Doyin will both unfortunately leave. :cmas4

Leg 5: I think Cyndi & Russell would still go home here.

Leg 6: NEL

Leg 7: Mary & Peach had too many problems in Hong Kong, so they go home here.

Leg 8: NEL, but it is probably Tara & Wil or Hope & Norm who are last. (This makes little difference, as there was no penalty those days.)

Leg 9: Gary & Dave probably still go here.

Leg 10: NEL

Leg 11: Here's the difficult part. Either Hope & Norm would be able to squeeze into the Top Three and replace Blake & Paige, or if they struggled there in New Zealand, then possibly Oswald & Danny might've made the Final Three instead. :cmas5

Leg 12 is a NEL and then Leg 13 would still feature Tara & Wil's and Chris & Alex's weird taxi fight. However, maybe Hope & Norm or Oswald & Danny would be able to stay close enough to them and win the race while those two played cat & mouse. :cmaslol

That was fun! :)

What if Heather & Eve did not take a taxi to the Portugal Pit Stop? Let us assume that Aaron & Arianne are eliminated here and let's assume that Heather & Eve did not make the Diesel error that the others made. How much further could they have gone in the race, in your opinion?

I'd have to agree with you, Joab! :cmas16

But going with my aforementioned scenario, if Aaron & Arianne left on Leg 4, then there would be nobody to save Andre & Damon on Leg 6, and consequently, Ken & Gerard would go home in the Austria/Germany leg, because of their flat tire en route to the Pit Stop. So then either John Vito & Jill or Heather & Eve would finish 5th, Derek & Drew in 4th, and then either John Vito & Jill or Heather & Eve would replace Ken & Gerard in the Final Three. :cmas5

Just my thoughts, but I thought this was an interesting question, because of the domino effect if Aaron & Arianne leave early, Andre & Damon would leave one leg earlier, and then Ken & Gerard would leave early as well). :cmas9

1. Wut if nancy and emily did switch the detour in thailand?

In fact Nancy and Emily in episode 9 of AR1 did the following:
1. competed for the FAST FORWARD on a traditional Buddhist game and lost it to Joe/Bill with it being a luck-based task
2. then had to do one of the 2 DETOURS starting from the Temple of the Dawn, Public or Private, to get to Kanchanburi.
3. In Public, teams had to go to a local bus station and board a bus leaving every 15 minutes, using their own money. In Private, teams had to find a free private vehicle within a specified area. The vehicles were parked somewhere in the marked area and teams only had a license plate number as their only clue
4. Nancy and Emily both exhausted themselves searching for the easy way, the Private car, but they did not find it after about 2 hours
5. Only then did Nancy and Emily fall back on Public and went to the public bus terminal; the mistake causing them to get the 24 hour penalty was to not go to the public bus terminal by Bangkok bus; they took a taxi

What if Brent & Caite finished last in Germany instead of Jeff & Jordan? Would they have made the final five?

Interesting... Brent & Caite would finish in seventh, well behind Jordeff on Leg 5, while Joe & Heidi go home. Then, Brent & Caite would assumably leave on Leg 6. Leg 7 is the NEL, and assumably, Steve & Allie will still struggle in Malaysia, allowing Jordeff a spot into the Final Five! I'm not sure what would happen next, as there is a U-Turn in Singapore and Brent & Caite are not around, so really anything could happen from that point on! :cmas16

What if Brad & Victoria made their connection in Amsterdam and Tammy & Victor were consequently eliminated in Romania? How would the rest of TAR14 pan out?

Hard to say... especially because they would have had to face a bungy in South Africa. I loved Anne-Marie & Tracy, but I also loved Richard & Joey, and my personal thoughts are that Joey & Richard would have survived the leg. Hard to say for sure, though. :cmas5

No, Joab, I don't think the royal "WE" clearly remember what happened back 10 years ago, as it was a complicated sequence of events. My point is that if Emily and Nancy had wanted to complete "Private" they would have done so. Since they were not up to that in the circumstances, they had no alternative but to use "public" and then they did not read and follow the clue carefully.

As to what might have happened if Nancy and Emily survived, they would never have caught Rob/Brennan or Frank/Margarita for one of the first two places. It's possible that they may have passed Kevin/Drew in one of the later legs, but I doubt it. I expect that Nancy/Emily would have gone out in Beijing in 4th place.

Have there been any circumstances when teams could not board a flight because of production crew? I mean,  if a flight onlt had 2 seats left instead of 4 and because of the production crew?

If that has ever happened, what if that hadn't happened?

When they book their flights they have to purchase 4 tickets, if there are not enough tickets then they cannot book that specific flight.  In the event that one of the four in involuntarily bumped I am not sure what would happen, I would assume that would be the same as one of the racers getting bumped and they would have to catch another flight.

Did WRP put Wil/Tara back with any penalty at the Finish Line? You bet they didn't. Blake/Paige were not very far behind Wil/Tara and would have taken second place if Wil/Tara had any significant penalty applied.

Great question, DavidJunior! :cmas16

Maria & Tiffany would definitely be gone, because they took a 2-hour penalty after losing their two people.

In Leg 2, I presume Garrett & Jessica would still have had their duck troubles. I think Lisa seemed a bit more calm than Ericka or Jessica, so Eric & Lisa would survive.

Marcy & Ron go home in Leg 3 because of their bad Detour choice. Zev & Justin leave in Leg 4 from the passports. Lance & Keri still get lost in the UAE and leave on Leg 5. Mika & Canaan have the slide problems on Leg 6 and still leave there.

Leg 7 is where it gets interesting. I feel confident that it is quite impossible to struggle more than Brian & Ericka did on that leg, after they fell behind at the Roadblock and also had a penalty at the Pit Stop, so they would be eliminated, as Maria & Tiffany are already gone.

Leg 8 is the NEL and then in Leg 9, I guess that Gary & Matt would still go home, unless Eric & Lisa also did not know what a candelabra is.

Leg 10 is another NEL and Flight Time & Big Easy obviously leave on Leg 11.

So Eric & Lisa are officially in the Final Three! I don't know how well they would do there. :cmas5

There is a lot of guesswork in my scenario obviously, and a couple of things could've worked out differently, such as Eric & Lisa getting more lost than Lance & Keri in Dubai, or Eric & Lisa perhaps getting unlucky at the haybales and getting the Speed Bump on Leg 9. :cmas5

What if Preston & Jennifer outran Christie & Jodi to the Leg 1 Pit Stop on TAR14? How much further could they have gone, considering the problems experienced by other teams on certain legs?

Leg 1: Christie and Jodi in 11th
Leg 2: Steve and Linda in 10th still (unless Preston/Jennifer got lost going down the hill as well)
Leg 3: Brad and Victoria in 9th still
Leg 4: Amanda and Kris most likely still in 8th (I feel A/K would still pose a bigger threat than P/J)
Leg 5: NEL
Leg 6: They would need to beat out the stuntmen to stay in it (Mark/Michael in 7th)
Leg 7: Mel and Mike still fall behind and come in 6th
Leg 8: NEL and unless they messed up big time too, Kisha and Jen would be getting the penalty
Leg 9: Would have to beat Jamie and Cara (J/C in 5th)
Leg 10/11: Just don't get lost and you're in the final
Leg 12: Still think that Tammy and Victor would win out

i think there are a couple more occasions where they would have to show some racing skill to survive, more so than in Eric/Lisa's season, but they could MAYBE make the finals

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough, but I didn't count Meghan and Cheyne, or even Sam and Dan (always bickered and yelled, but still ran a relatively clean and decent race) in that

What I meant by "the kid and monkey easily making the final 3 over all the other teams" was directed at all teams who didn't reach the finale + Brian and Ericka, not the two who would be running in the finale with them (i.e. Meghan and Cheyne, Sam and Dan)

I agree with that list mostly. (My personal changes are reflected through the bold.) :cmas16

TAR12 was the best finale of all-time for me, because the Memory Challenge was perfect! I also thought that the TAR13 finale was great, too.

Post-All-Stars, my favourite seasons are definitely TAR12, 15, 17 and 18, closely followed by 13 and then 14, with 16 next and then 19 at the bottom.

For me, the TAR19 cast was sorta average - I LOVED Amani & Marcus, and I rather loved having an older couple make it so far (although I prefer Teri & Ian, Meredith & Gretchen and Fran & Barry over Bill & Cathi, personally) but I thought the all-female teams were too weak (even though I really loved them both :( ) and Laurence & Zac were too dull, and the winners were the worst of all time, for me.

I also liked Jeremy & Sandy, but they got waaaaay too little screentime to be considered one of my favourites, personally.

As for Joab's interesting question - well, most of us probably wouldn't know each other if that happened :cmas4 and we would be quite bored with our lives because there is no TAR (is it just me, or do you guys agree? :cmaslol ) so even though I have no idea about anything related to Sarah Jessica Parker, we definitely owe her a lot, seemingly! :cmas16

As for your question, if Nat & Kat went in Oman, then in Bangladesh I still think Chad & Stephanie would be going home.

Post by: StephenWasHere on January 01, 2012, 09:35:20 AM
For me, TAR 15 had some great teams, but they all went out far too early. By the time the Final 5 rolled around, the only team I was actively rooting for was Brian/Ericka. Seriously the string of Marcy/Ron, Zev/Justin, Lance/Keri, Mika/Canaan boots was one of the most saddening things to see, but especially the first two.

What if Lena/Kristy had found the clue in the haybale?

We'd lose Don/Mary-Jean so here's how I think it'd play out.

Senegal is still an NEL which would instead probably hit Gus/Hera (though I'd imagine Lena/Kristy get an unimpressive 6th or 7th)
Then, I assume we lose Gus/Hera in Germany.
Double Leg in Hungary, maybe Lena/Kristy make it through, but I don't think they would. For the sake of this thread though, I'll say that they make it through Hungary and Freddy/Kendra are elim'd.
Corsica still an NEL and Hayden/Aaron get NEL'd
John/Victoria still implode in Ethiopia and under the impression that Lena/Kristy don't, they'd make it to Sri Lanka. That's honestly about as far as I can see them go. I think they'd go instead of Lori/Bolo.
Meaning our Final 4 would be Lori/Bolo, Adam/Rebecca, Hayden/Aaron, and Kris/Jon. From this point, I can only see Kris/Jon or Hayden/Aaron winning.

I wondered if Nat and Kat were eliminated in Oman (and not Gary and Mallory), would Brooke and Claire have won and Gary and Mallory making the final three?
Well, I don't know if Chad & Stephanie would go home, as Nat & Kat U-Turned them. I don't see Gary & Mallory U-turning Chad & Stephanie. So Brook & Claire go home from the U-Turn, and nick & Vicki still have troubles in China/South Korea., we have a Chad/Stephanie, Jill/Thomas & Gary/Mallory finale. I don't know who wins though. But that means we would see Nat/Kat in TAR 18! They would probably win TAR 18 then.

I think if Adam and Rebecca can make the F3, Lena and Kristy has got what it takes to make the F3 too.

I WISHED THEY GAVE THEM ANOTHER CHANCE IN UNFINISHED BUSINESS. That will solve ALL OUR curiosity on whether or not they will be good racers or not.

It's so unfair they gave ninth placers Zev and Justin another chance! :cmas29 :cmas29 :cmas29 :cmas29

Why wouldn't Brook and Claire use the U-turn on Chad and Stephanie themselves?  I thought they got there first?

And I don't know if Nat/Kat would win TAR 18... 17 was the Season where they tipped the scales heavily in the favor of the All-Female teams...

What if Linda had soared down with Mel? Or what if the wind took hours to change?

Interesting!! :tup:

In the first scenario, Steve & Linda would've beaten out Christie & Jodi. They would still survive the next leg as well, due to Brad & Victoria's flight. However, I think Steve & Linda would leave in Krasnoyarsk, which would save Amanda & Kris. Then Kisha & Jen are Speed Bumped in Novosibirsk, but I think Mark & Michael go home in India. Mel & Mike leave on the first Thailand leg, and Kisha & Jen are Speed Bumped on the second Thailand leg. Then I think Jaime & Cara would leave in Guilin, leaving a Final Four of Margie & Luke, Amanda & Kris, Kisha & Jen and Tammy & Victor. Now, since Amanda & Kris are still alive (and possibly may have won a few legs in the process) Tammy & Victor might target them at the U-Turn instead of Kisha & Jen, but that is difficult to predict, so I won't hazard a guess from that point on.

In the second scenario, Mel & Mike would assumably leave, although Steve & Linda would be given some sort of penalty for Linds jumping into somebody's car to go down the mountain. Brad & Victoria still go next, but once again, I would hazard a guess that Steve & Linda leave in Krasnoyarsk. Then, Christie & Jodi are still Speed Bumped in Novosibirsk and eliminated in India, but it will be Kisha & Jen who go home in Phuket. Mark & Michael are Speed Bumped in Bangkok and eliminated in Guilin. This leaves a Final Four of Jaime & Cara, Margie & Luke, Amanda & Kris and Tammy & Victor, and once again, I won't predict what would happen next, because Tammy & Victor could have U-Turned any one of those teams, as they were all very strong. :duno:

As of what they said, T/V, J/C & M/L stated in the very first legs that they'd be pleased to be together in the final three, and so, I think they'd U-Turn Amanda & Kris, making the same final we had on the race.

What if the race had 12 legs and not 11 and the first Beijing leg was non-elimination? Would Tammy/Vic still have U-turned Kisha/Jen knowing that they have a Speed Bump (some task like say pouring tea at the detour location) and would Jamie/Cara survive.

Interesting scenario - but if Tammy & Victor were intelligent (I'm not convinced that they are) they would've realised that the Speed Bump - more often than not - is a task that takes up about 5-10 minutes of time and would've still U-Turned Kisha & Jen.

However, it's also possible that they would U-Turn Margie & Luke instead, and if this was the case, Margie & Luke were far enough ahead to stay there, and Jaime & Cara would've gone home. However, I'm not sure whether Kisha & Jen would've done too well on that finale. :duno:

I think there's nothing can stop Tammy & Victor from U-Turning Kisha & Jen since they felt they can't outrun Kisha & Jen at the final race. I think this result would be different if only Kisha & Jen switched their Roadblocks: Kisha did the eat-challenge, while Jen did the foot massage. The U-Turn didn't affect the placement, and Kisha & Jen will spare the elimination. I'm glad that they didn't make it to Final 3 :res:

It would have saved Margie & Luke or Ronald & Christina instead :(
And I wouldn't be surprised if the one saved made the final three, considering that Jet still strugles at the roadblock, Zev & Justin still strugle at the Detour in Zermatt, and FT/BE still missing the train in Rio.

But we wouldn't had Vyxsin's epic plunge in the Ganges :lol:

For sure they could have survived leg 3 since so many teams messed up the Detour. They probably could have beaten Jeff and Jordan in leg 4, which almost gives them guaranteed survival until leg 7, where they may have been Nel'd.

Great question Luke!

But I think if Kent & Vyxsin were still the third team to arrive at the U-Turn mat, they still would've used the second U-Turn on Jaime & Cara, sealing their fate. :'( :'( :'(

However, I'll also try to answer your question with the assumption that the second U-Turn was not used, or was used on the Globetrotters, who did very well at the Roadblock anyway. If this was the case, then Zev & Justin and Jaime & Cara would've been in a much closer race for survival. I'm not sure exactly how far apart they had initially checked in, so I'm not sure whether or not Jaime & Cara would survive. :duno: However, just for the fun of it, let's assume that Jaime & Cara did survive:

It's hard to see Jaime & Cara being eliminated in India, due to your own bad luck with the tea and Ronald getting lost at the Varanasi Roadblock, meaning that Jaime & Cara would be in the Final Six. Then, assumably, the rest of the teams still wouldn't have told Jet & Cord the Leichtenstein answer, meaning that they left in Zermatt, and after Kent & Vyxsin's 30-minute penalty on the second Zermatt leg, they would still definitely go home there.

This means that Jaime & Cara now are in the Final Four. And they would have a good chance of making the Final Three, especially after Flight Time & Big Easy fell behind at the beginning of the penultimate leg. Also, that Brazil leg involved dancing - which would've played to Jaime & Cara's strengths, so I think they would make the Final Three. From that point on, it's very difficult to predict, but IF Jaime & Cara had overcome Zev & Justin in Kunming and given how the rest of the race eventuated, it's hard to see them not making the Final Three.

I wonder if anyone has a different opinion? :duno:

One of the beautiful things about TAR 18 is the pre-existing relationship which helped teams propel further. Gary and Mallory and a few other teams like Kent and Vyxsin wouldn't have made it further than they would have (even the Globetrotters) if the teams who were actually working together weren't eliminated. Although the first 4 teams eliminated were all TAR 14 teams, that doesn't mean TAR 14 teams had weak teams. I thoroughly enjoyed that season and they had some intense drama going on that season...

TAR 14 <3 one of the best seasons after TAR 5 and 7.

What if Globetrotters got delayed and went home instead on the leg Margie and Luke got eliminated. Do you think Margie and Luke they will go further in the race?

Considering that if teams like Kent and Vyxsin can go all the way till the F5, I believe that Margie and Luke has a good chance to be in the F4 at least. They should be a strong contender for the F3 as well.. and that would mean 5th place would be Zev and Justin, 4th place Globetrotters and a F3 with ALL FAMILY TEAMS!!! <333333333333333333333 and teams I like! :ghug:

Then Mark & Michael would've left on that leg, regardless of whether or not Amanda & Kris were U-Turned by Margie & Luke, because they werent performing well on that leg. Christie & Jodi and Mel & Mike leave at the same points, but then Jaime & Cara would go in Guilin, due to their language barrier at the Choreography Detour Task. Then Tammy & Victor could either U-Turn Amanda & Kris or Kisha & Jen - it is difficult to predict who they would go with at that point? :duno:

What if Globetrotters got delayed and went home instead on the leg Margie and Luke got eliminated. Do you think Margie and Luke they will go further in the race?

TAR18 is another one of those seasons in which if a particular team survived their leg, they probably could've gone much further. If Margie & Luke had survived, then Ron & Christina, Jet & Cord and Kent & Vyxsin still leave at the same spots, and once at the Final Four, Zev & Justin just had too many difficulties in Brazil, so Margie & Luke would've had a great chance to be in the Final Three. :tup:

However, I'd still put my money on Kisha & Jen to win - they seemed to run a flawless leg in the finale! ;)

Preston and Jennifer got behind in the taxi from Milan - Malpensa airport to the train to Switzerland, which intersection happened north of Milan and south of the border. They did not get on the same train as the other Milan-landing teams and fell behind in episode 1. Out of the cheese task at Kleine Rugge Wiese they recovered to 10th place, but in Stechelberg their auditory skills were lacking and they went the wrong way in the parking lot. Christie/Jodi arrived at the pit stop just before they did.

Quote
Reality TV World: What led to you guys missing that first train in Milan?

Preston: [When we landed in Milan], we came off the plane and we were in first place. We got the first taxi and we were good to go.

Jennifer: We were first place for a long time.

Preston: Our taxi driver didn't speak any English, and we were telling him "Look, you need to take this specific exit, please don't go this way." We were like "No autostrado, no autostrado," whatever.

Anyway foreshadowing -- we should've known it was going to be a bad day -- but our taxi driver and one other team's were the only ones who didn't have a speedpass going through the tolls, and when we came out of there he missed the exit and he takes us into rush hour and we're stuck in traffic for maybe 45 minutes or an hour. Then we go to the wrong customs portion before we get to the train station and that takes another hour or hour-and-a-half. By the time we finally get to the train station we just missed the second train by like 20 minutes.
 
Reality TV World: About how far away was the train station from the airport?

Preston: Maybe an hour at the most?

Jennifer: About an hour [to an] hour-and-a-half. Of course we had to stop, so when all the other cars had speedpasses and they're just speeding on through, we lost our first place because our car had to stop and pay the toll. Then as soon as you pay the toll, that was the exit we were supposed to get off on, and all the other cars are getting off and we're like "We need to go this way, follow those cars." The [taxi driver] looks at us and is like "No," and he's like pointing up and we look up and there's this big sign [saying] that we're not supposed to take that way.

Preston: Right.

Jennifer: So we got stuck in customs for that two hours ultimately because... the  language barrier is pretty much what cost us that leg. We didn't speak his language and we're telling him to go this way and we're speaking to them in a foreign language and he kinda took his initiative and went the way he wanted to and it got us lost the first day. So thank God that [church] was just a stop and not a Pit Stop.


Reality TV World: Christie and Jodi were the last team to arrive [at the cheese challenge]. Do you know about how long after you had arrived that they got there and how much of a jump you had on them?
 
Jennifer: We had about 30-45 minutes.

Preston: Yeah, on the cheese hill?

Reality TV World: Yeah.

Preston: Well on the cheese hill we had about a 20 minute lead, and then after we got done...

Jennifer: (Interrupting) They got there as we were running off...

Preston: No, no, no, no. They were doing the cheese hill while we were doing the cheese hill.

Jennifer: See I didn't see them. I saw them running up.

Preston: They had to go back and get one more cheese after we got finished with ours. So we had a good 30 minute lead in the taxi on the way to the Pit Stop.

Reality TV World: Oh, okay. So what happened there? Did they have a quick cab? Did you have a slow one? Did you just get lost somewhere?

Preston: We still got there 35 minutes ahead of them, we just didn't have any money. None of the teams that took our flight, none of us had enough money to pay for our [taxis] at the end.

Jennifer: The important thing is Preston and I didn't spend any money during the way. The money that we spent was on transportation. We didn't eat, we spent zero dollars. So we didn't have enough money, and for our taxi we were 75 Francs short, so we get there and I'm begging the driver, who either spoke French or German I'm not sure, I'm begging him to let us go. And the other teams had already begged for money, so as we're begging for money everybody's like "No, we've already been hit up," so nobody was giving any money.

So we were begging and I finally went back to the taxi driver and he's yelling at me in this language "I need to be paid!" so I just decide, "Okay we're just gonna run." So we run to go to the Pit Stop, well we ran the wrong way, [we did] what they showed [Linda and Steve do on TV], everybody I think went that way because there were speakers going up the mountains that sounded like the yodelers, so it kinda seemed like you had to go up the mountain so that's what we all were doing.

Well we realized that it was the wrong way and we needed to go the opposite way that we were running. Preston and I got back into the little circle in town that we were running through initially and it was "Oh my God I can't believe we just went the wrong way, we're such idiots. Blah, blah blah."

Well, Jodie and Christie had just gotten out of their taxi cab and they heard that, and they're like "Hey." They started running and realized that we were running the wrong way, so then they turned around to go the other way, and then by that time it was just neck-and-neck. It was a footrace, literally a second apart, if that.

I doubt they would make it past Borodbur. I don't think the other teams would've helped them out and thus, they would be eliminated.

What if Amanda and Kris have beated Ron and Cristina in Junction Mine?
Leg 3: They could probably beat out Mel & Mike with hypothermia.
Leg 4: Non-Elimination
Leg 5: Depends who did the dinosaur roadblock. If Amanda did it, they might of been eliminated, but if Kris did it, they would probably beat Jaime & Cara.
Leg 6: Margie & Luke and the globetrotters struggle with the tea roadblock (M/L) and the Hindu Art Detour (FT/BE)
Leg 7: Toss up because of no Ron and Christina, might be eliminated or Kent and Vyxsin eliminated.
Leg 8: Non-Elimination
Leg 9: Jet & Cord were U-Turned and struggled in Liechtenstein, Amanda/Kris would survive (Unless they were U-Turned Again!)
Leg 10: Toss Up because Kent and Vyxsin would be gone. May be eliminated or Zev and Justin would be eliminated.
Leg 11: Toss Up because Zev and Justin are gone.
Leg 12: Final 3

I do not think Amanda & Kris would make final 3. I think they would have eliminated in Leg 7 in 7th place. They have the possibility of making Final 3, but there are too many ifs.

I think that if Nancy & Emily had switched Detours instead of just giving up after losing the Fast-Forward to Bill & Joe, they would have still been in the Race as Team Guido got complacent and arrived after everyone else had arrived!  Then Nancy & Emily might have had a chance to beat Kevin & Drew and make it to the Final 3, but they would have needed to switch Detours early enough to have much of a chance to catch up to the first two teams.

Actually, Nancy/Emily would have almost surely made it into the Final Three, with a fair shot at winning, too!

If they'd taken the bus instead of the taxi to Krabi, they'd have their Fast Forward left, meaning they could have skipped the Hours of Operation trap that forced Kevin/Drew and Joe/Bill one full day behind. Joe/Bill would have been eliminated in Krabi, and Kevin/Drew would have made for a very unclimatic fourth-place finish a day behind everyone else in Beijing. The final three teams then make it all the way to New York on the same plane...

Probably 9th place, or worst case scenario, 10th place as Jet & Cord also had problems. It wouldn't have effected the race much as the first leg was non-elimination.

I do think they had a good chance of beating U/J in the London leg had they gone for the Brains instead of the Brawn detour. Meredith seemed like a pretty patient guy, so he could've easily pulled out a good finish in the double decker bus roadblock. Once the final 3 got to Jamaica, the main problem for M/G would've been the limbo roadblock, because realistically speaking, I doubt Gretchen is in enough physical condition to go down as low as Amber and Kelly did, so they would've been on the last flight, but they have a chance at making it up in the Tee It Up detour, because it doesn't require anything physically demanding. It would definitely be a tight race for 2nd with Ron & Kelly, because with how dysfunctional the two of them were, their arguing would've slowed them down enough that M/G could edge out a finish. In case Meredith & Gretchen get the NEL penalty, I think they'd have an easier time with getting money, because let's face it, who wouldn't find it easy to give money to an older couple. Once all 3 teams get to Miami, we can count out Ron & Kelly, because Kelly was such a terrible navigator that there's no way they'd find the airport on time. Assuming the pilot is kind enough to let Meredith & Gretchen on the flight, then whoever wins is up in the air, because the whole task where they had to find the cigar shop was more based on luck than anything else, because as we saw in the real show, it was essentially the taxi driver who determined who finished first and who got second.

What if Misa & Maiya, instead of going left side trying to find the PitStop, would have gone right and checked in tenth place?

They probably would have survived Argentina 2 and Paraguay and Germany because of Missisippi  but massive struggle after that.

My own: What if Tramel & Talicia survived Mexico?
 My answer: Teri & Ian would get eliminated, Dennis/ Andrew get EL from FF, probably survive Portugal thanks to Heather and Eve, ditto Morocco because of diesel problem (lets assume that they didn't make the shitty mistake) Germany because of Team 911 and possibly take an unclaimed FF along the way. T&T survive the 2 NEL's, then get EL'd in Singapore, creates epic battle for F3 between John Vito & Jill and Wonder Twins, either one gets in would probably win.
What if Bopper didn't hurt his knee?
 Answer: Bopper does Bollywood RB, keeps them in, forces Vanessa & Ralph to NEL, take the FF resulting in Art & JJ or Vanessa & Ralph EL. Then maybe they could win!

What if Mark and Bopper beat Art and JJ in India, get to Japan and Bopper ends up doing the roadblock? It's Bopper v. Vanessa to see who can overcome their injury first, making what could have been the most difficult to watch task in race history, two individuals performing a task that requires them to use their most injured body parts (ankle, knee/leg) trying to beat each other. It would have been torturous.

However I have the answer to my own question >< If Mark and Bopper had beaten Art and JJ it would mean that they had used the fast forward giving them roadblock leniency.

Actually, on closer inspection, Mark had already completed 5 roadblocks, therefore, Bopper would have had to do the Chicken gameshow regardless of fast forward leniency because of the 5 roadblock limit going into the final leg.

What are your thoughts? Would the task be harder for Bopper or Vanessa?

what if, in season 18, Jet and Cord are told the correct answer in the roadblock, and thus get on the same train with the second bunch?
Who gets eliminated, how far do they go?

Personally, I think FT/BE go because of their screw up with the tags, and no one gets eliminated. Then, Kynt and Vyxsin still go because of their penalty, and Zev and Justin also go in Brazil, making a J/C, G/M anf K/J finale.

From their im not sure..

What do you think?!

My memory is a little fuzzy on that leg so my explanation may not be the best.

One thing you neglected to remember is that there was a Double U-Turn that leg. Many of the other teams' strategy was to get rid of Jet & Cord by telling everyone the answer except them. If they would have gotten on the same train as others, there is the possibility that someone would U-Turn them because they want to get rid of them, thus eliminating them.

That's my input.

If they had won the FF, i think they would have reach the Temple of Dawn quicker than Team Guido did.
But either way, if they managed to place in 4th or 1st, i'm pretty sure they would've been eliminated by the next leg....

ik this is old topic but o well. i disagree because remember how far behind kevin and drew get?
[/quote]

If I remember the season correctly, in the following leg Kevin & Drew arrived at an Hours of Operation sign less than an hour after it closed, so if any team was just a bit faster than them then they would have been racing in the same day as Rob & Brennan and Frank & Margarita.

That's my input.

None of the teams conspired to get rid of Jet & Cord. The only reason no one gave them the answer is because no one saw them. Also, the only reason Flight Time & Big Easy U-turned the Cowboys is because they knew they were the only team behind them. It could have been any team following the Globetrotters and they probably would have U-turned them.

Let's hope we never find out!

But if they couldn't have gotten Phil out of detainment by the time teams started reaching the Pit Stop, they probably would've continued letting teams arrive at the Pit Stop but then re-stage their arrival for Phil and the cameras.

I remember reading somewhere that this actually kind of happened. IIRC, Charla & Mirna arrived at the Pit Stop location during All-Stars before production arrived, so their arrival had to be re-staged.

After seeing her run at the starting line sprint, I think she would have made one less attempt run to reach the chicken. Vanessa/Ralph and Brendon/Rachel seemed like they were closer, but if it wasn't for the twisted leg, they would be having a foot race to the Pit Stop and Rachel can beat her.

The 30-min penalty would probably not have mattered unless the Globetrotters would have been stupid enough to do the Beer task (the Golem was faster). I believe that the Globetrotters would have gotten 3rd that leg if Big Easy had gotten the roadblock (or if Flight Time had done it).

Think they could have a shot at F3, considering Millie and Chuck and Kelly and Jon were so lost at the two F5 legs. Both Jon and Al and David and Jeff stumbled at the F4 legs. Reichen and Chip were the only ones who raced decently since Leg 8 - finale. So, if Reichen and Chip got eliminated, then Tian and Jaree at least has a shot at F3 because every remaining team stumbled in at least one leg... but anything could happen.

Hmmm... let's  think about this. My memory's probably a bit hazy considering I haven't watched TAR4 in ages, but here goes.

India 2 - Obviously Reichen and Chip are eliminated from the race.
Malaysia 1 - Major stuff up by Kelly & Jon, NELd; no effect on Tian & Jaree.
Malaysia 2 - Kelly & Jon takes the FF because Reichen & Chip are eliminated and Tian & Jaree have already won a FF; no epic Kelly & Jon v Millie & Chuck race; POSSIBLY Tian & Jaree also get lost, but presuming they don't (only 2 teams got lost that leg anyway) it's either an epic footrace to the finish which Tian & Jaree win because of Millie's asthma or it's an easy cruise for Tian & Jaree to the finish in a position other than 1st.
South Korea - I can't remember if teams are flight bunched or not, but David & Jeff majorly stuff up; either way its a NEL and Tian & Jaree are safe for yet another leg.
Australia 1 - Jon & Al stuff up the flight, and ultimately get eliminated. MAYBE Tian & Jaree get on the same flight as them, but highly doubtful; nobody takes a taxi to the pitstop apart from POSSIBLY Tian & Jaree, but I don't think they would lose any ground against the performance of Reichen & Chip, so they do get into the final 3!
Australia 2 - A leg that nobody cares about.
Finale - Either they take the flight with David & Jeff, creating THE MOST BORING FINALE EVER! or they fight it out in an epic battle with Kelly & Jon.

Either way, if Tian & Jaree bet Reichen & Chip they would've won one (or both) of these records: First all female team to reach the F3 OR First all female team to win The Amazing Race.

Also, the winners would've been much better. :P

What if Shola & Doyin hadn't gotten hopelessly lost in Namibia?

Namibia - Shola & Doyin don't get lost, they come at least 1 position higher, which results in a Chris & Alex elimination.
Thailand 1 - Cyndi & Russell were sufficiently behind to not bother the situation, Shola & Doyin reaches F6.
Thailand 2 -  NEL, Tara/Wil or Shola/Doyin NEL, doesn't matter.
Hong Kong - Mary/Peach de facto surrender, Shola/Doyin reach F5.
Australia 1 - NEL, leg doesn't matter.
Australia 2 - Fast forward NOT TAKEN this leg, possibility for either Tara/Wil or Blake/Paige to take the FF. Either one would get on the first charter flight, although this is moot because they did anyway. Gary/Dave stuff up bigtime; Shola/Doyin survive the leg.
New Zealand 1 - NEL, therefore doesn't matter.
New Zealand 2 - Oswald & Danny start the leg behind, never catch up. It is possible that Shola & Doyin do the same thing, but unlikely. Either way F3 is either made up of Blake & Paige, Tara & Wil and Oswald & Danny or Shola & Doyin.
US 1 - NEL, doesn't matter.
US 2 - On the final flights into San Fran, Blake & Paige stuff up (or was it the taxis?). If it was the taxis, the non existence of Chris & Alex could put them into a better cab, giving them a run for their money. Tara & Wil scream at the random and stuff up. Shola & Doyin could take the place of Chris & Alex and win, or Oswald & Danny or even Blake & Paige. However we wouldn't see the epic footrace.

I think Jet and Cord win by about 5 mins because of the massive time gap in leaving first and last in a plane. It would of been the best finale ever.

I then think S18 is normal all stars because CBS would be aware that everyone wanted to see the cowboys again.

But Bates/Anthony & Max/Katie, IMO, did the tasks quicker than Mona/Beth, not to mention they had a Speed Bump.

With this in mind, I think B/A & M/K would still arrive to the U-Turn board first and stuck with the plan of U-Turning J/M & M/B, saving C/J, and resulting in either J/M or M/B eliminated.

That can also be possible since 7 attempts on the Roadblock would've taken a long time and everybody else did it on their 1st attempt.
Mona/Beth did both Detours pretty quickly, so they might finish before the Country Singers & Joey/Meghan.

As per C/J & J/M battling it out, I think C/J would've survived since J/M struggled quite a bit in both Detours especially the barrel one.

Max & Katie would be eliminated in Botswana
Chuck & Wynona would still be eliminated in Switzerland
NEL in Germany
They probably would have found the earliest flight to Scotland so Joey & Meghan or Mona & Beth eliminated in Scotland depending on how the U-Turns play out.
Probably would beat Caroline & Jennifer in Northern Ireland.

So the final 3 would be Bates & Anthony, Pam & Winnie, and Mona & Beth (or Joey and Meghan).

Then Josh & Brent would be last in Moscow 1. Their 4-hour penalty would kill them on the second leg in Moscow.

In the next leg, Abbie & Ryan's missed flight would have killed them, regardless of the U-Turn, and assuming James & Abba just got on the flight with the others.

In Spain, the self driving did put Natalie & Nadiya in last. Just don't know how in would turn out for James & Abba. But I bet they're good drivers. Still, Loire Valley was a toss up, so James & Abba may or may not have reached the Final Three. And if they did, there is a good chance they could have won, give or take Jaymes & James.

Over all, there would have been less drama in the final legs   :(

They would probably find out the earlier flight to Scotland, Bates & Anthony and Caroline & Jen would likely U-Turn Roller Derby and YouTube. They would probably get lost on penultimate leg but still could beat Caroline & Jen to the pit stop.

Yes, they did. They left the airport first and IIRC arrive in the middle of the pack.

What if Bates and Anthony chose not to use the Fast Forward, and race normally?
Pam & Winnie might take the Fast Forward, Max & Katie eliminated. Pam & Winnie would likely go to the F3.
how do u figure  that?

cuz mona and beth got soo lost driving the autobahn.. and pam and winnie arent that strong navigators... so they probably faced a foot race against hockey and derby...  which  they would come last on that non elim.. and who knows how long the speed bump would have taken winnie and pam

Yeah, except that Pam and Winnie are flight goddesses and get on the earlier flight and save themselves.

Pam & Winnie were horrible with directions. And who cares if they can get flights? Anyone can figure out how to do flights if they're smart enough (i.e. almost every team this season)
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Air on May 17, 2013, 07:51:03 PM
Yeah but the majority of them aren't smart enough, and besides, I have no clue how you got to the assumption that the majority of teams this season were good at flights. Ultimately only Pam & Winnie were, with Maxie being a close second. And besides, flights give you more of a buffer zone than if you can navigate well.
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Bwils927 on May 17, 2013, 07:56:12 PM

Yeah I know it doesn't. Anyone can find a flight, but actually getting a flight that puts you ahead of the competition is very hard to do. The only other team like this is Charla & Mirna.

No. Pam & Winnie screwed up on two tasks: Jetskis and Botswana Detour. I can name lots of other teams who screwed up on many more tasks than that.

Let's not forget that Pam & Winnie did not get lost with directions in Botswana, IIRC, so they are not terrible with directions. Let's also not forget that every single team in the Final 4 has gotten messed up by directions in self driving.

Going back to the stem of the debate, Pam & Winnie would survive the Scotland leg because of catching a better flight than Mona & Beth and Joey Meghan, giving them a 2 hour and 33 minute lead. IIRC, no teams got lost navigating in Scotland (or at least not aired), so I don't believe Pam & Winnie would have blown the lead especially if they don't get U-Turned, thus moving onto the Final 3 as originally presumed.

And FYI, Pam & Winnie only blew a 30 minute lead in New Zealand when they were on the flight by themselves.

my point is this if pam and winnie got lost and was in the 3 way foot race between derby and hockey odds are they would be  last on the NEL leg... so we dont know how they would have played skittles (or w.e. its called)  thus they could have been uturned and thus have them been out.. or better yet even if they would have gotten on that earlier flight... they still would get lost.. then that speed bump.. might not make it past geremany

But Pam and Winnie would still do well. Remember that Pam/Winnie is very detail-oriented, they could have done Train Trials REALLY fast. If they got lost as Mona and Beth, they would still be 3rd because: a. They would not switch Detours b. They would not struggle with the leg possibly unless it was directions, in which they would be 4th at worst.

Additionally, Pam & Winnie would not have gotten U-Turned because of the pact between the frontrunner teams to take out Joey & Meghan and Mona & Beth. Also, I highly doubt it would have taken Pam & Winnie two hours to complete skittles and blow their lead (because, remember, they're on the earlier flight) and also, I don't think they would have gotten lost in Scotland ANYWAY because they would have followed Bates & Anthony and Caro & Jen because of the aformentioned U-Turn alliance.

Leg 10: Got on a better flight to Scotland, would probably finished 3rd behind Hockey and Country Singers

Additionally would probably beat Caitlin & Brittany in Leg 3, then I'm not really sure what would happen Leg 4, either they would be eliminated or Trey & Lexi. If they make it past Leg 4, they should have an easy shot in the Final 4 with, Rob & Kelley struggling in Turkey and James & Abba's passport problems and Abbie & Ryan's flight problems.

Leg 4 or 5 for Rob & Sheila
Leg 7 for Matt & Daniel in my opinion.

Post by: Platrium on May 22, 2013, 09:23:30 PM
Leg 4 or 5 for Rob & Sheila
Leg 7 for Matt & Daniel in my opinion.

Ok. . . If they survived their 1st legs, let's say they were eliminated in those legs.

So for TAR21, if the Chippendales had not overtaken Rob & Sheila, Chippendales go home 1st. Then with Amy & Daniel getting lost and Caitlin & Brittany's bad cab in Indonesia, they'd be the next 2 to go. Then if Rob & Sheila would be eliminated on the 4th leg, Gary & Will could keep racing. Leg 5's a NEL. Leg 6 with Rob & Kelley falling behind. Then the Rockers' passport problems. Then the F5 would have Abbie & Ryan, Twinnies, Trexi, Beekman, and Gary & Will. Now if Gary & Will took the Frankfurt connection in Leg 7, they'd get the F5 boot; but if not, Abbie & Ryan would go home due to the fact that they were u-turned. Then from here on. . . it's a bit hard to predict.

On the other hand, if Matt and Daniel's boat didn't capsize twice, Country singers go home 1st, then Idries & Jamil due to their water problems, then stubborn John and her poor gf not using the ep, and then Dave & Connor's withdrawal. Leg 6 = NEL. If Matt & Daniel goes home on the 7th leg, then Pam & Winnie would be safe from their big mistake. Then Chuck & Wynona's penalty would boot them out. Leg 9 = NEL. Then the F5 would have Pam & Winnie, Max & Katie, Hockey, Roller Derby, and YouTube. Team YouTube's flight mistake would send them home next. Then on leg 11, since the country singers went home 1st, either Roller Derby or Pam & Winnie won't race for the million, depending if Pam & Winnie gets lost or not.

Leg 1: Gary & Mallory don't win the Express Pass, that is given to Zev & Justin instead.
Leg 2: This alters the signups list slightly, but it doesn't change the fact that Amanda & Kris are eliminated.
Leg 3: I don't remember exactly who was on each flight, but it doesn't matter again because Mel & Mike are kind of medevaced.
Leg 4: NEL, Kent & Vyxsin NELed, but Zev & Justin use their Express Pass here.

What if the intersection and the express pass could both be encountered/won in the same season, and what if the team with the express pass wanted to use it while being intersected with another team? Would it be ok for 2 teams to skip a task by means of using only 1 ep, or must both intersected teams have an ep each in order to skip an intersected task? I got confused. :gaah:

I don't think they could navigate well. They fell behind in NZ even though they weren't the last ones at the rb.

What if Rob & Brennan, Tara & Wil, Ken & Gerard, Amanda & Chris, Millie & Chuck, Steve & Josh, Alison & Donny, Hayden & Aaron, Debbie & Bianca, The Godlewski Family, Eric & Jeremy, Tyler & James, Rob & Amber, Azaria & Hendekea, Nick & Starr, Margie & Luke, Meghan & Cheyne and Jordan & Jeff had won an Express Pass on their first legs of their races? And what if Abbie & Ryan had won one instead of the Double Your Money?

- Alison & Donny used EP 2nd leg.. But will probably still get eliminated anyway.
- Amanda & Chris used EP on 2nd leg. They probably made it until Malaysia/India.
- Hayden & Aaron used EP on the leg they got NEL'd. Jon/Vic NEL'd, but this won't change anything really.
- Azaria & Hendekea used EP on the leg they were eliminated, replacing Nic & Don in F3.. Or maybe they would win?
- Romber used EP leg 4 and replace Charla & Mirna in 3rd place.. Don't think they would beat Eric & Danielle and BQs somehow
- Debbie & Bianca used EP the leg they got eliminated but will probably get eliminated 2-3 legs after that. (Same with Steve & Josh)
- Millie Mole & Chuck used EP on leg they fast forwarded, then probably went for the FF in Malaysia 2 but lost to Reichen & Chip.. Still got eliminated on Malaysia 2.
- Godlewskis used EP on the leg they got NEL'd, Gaghans NELd

Too lazy to answer teams that was in F3 since it wouldn't change anything :lol:

TAR 15: Meghan & Cheyne would either use it on the 4th leg or on the haybales, but it would only affect their placement on leg 8. The episode title will also change.
TAR 16: Jordan & Jeff would use it either on the leg 3 detour or on the leg 4 detour. If leg 3, they'd still finish in 7th. If leg 4, Brent & Caite would replace them. Then they'd make it to the F5. Since Brent & Caite went home earlier, depending on who u-turns who... never mind, that's how far I can predict.
TAR 21: If Abbie & Ryan had one instead of the DYM... I think they'd use it on the Leg 5 rb. Then, Jaymes & James wouldn't necessarily u-turn them, but Trey & Lexi still would. And everything really depends on the u-turn on Leg 9.

TAR22: In Indonesia, what if Bates & Anthony's taxi got them lost while going to the detour or roadblock and were eliminated? (Note: What if they were so lost that Team JJ would survive even without using their EP.)
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Air on June 03, 2013, 05:30:03 AM
Short answer: Congratulations Max & Katie for winning The Amazing Race 22!

Long answer:

Leg 5: Everyone survives, null point.
Leg 6: Everyone survives, null point.
Leg 7: I feel that Jessica & John would probably make the same mistake as Pam & Winnie, which means either of them could be eliminated. It branches off into two directions from here.

Leg 8 With JJ eliminated in Leg 7: Chyona still eliminated.
Leg 8 With Pam & Winnie eliminated in Leg 7: Chyona still eliminated.

Leg 9 With JJ eliminated in Leg 7: Moot point.
Leg 9 With Pam & Winnie eliminated in Leg 7: Moot point.

Leg 10 With JJ eliminated in Leg 7: Everything is the same, with Pam & Winnie replacing Bates & Anthony.
Leg 10 With Pam & Winnie eliminated in Leg 7: It's an even 5 way race because any of the remaining alliance (JJ/Mona & Beth/Joey & Meghan) would tell each other about the other flight, causing Caro & Jen to be eliminated.

Leg 11:  With JJ eliminated in Leg 7: Pam & Winnie might have some trouble at the Roadblock, but I forecast a Caro & Jen elimination regardless.
Leg 11 with Pam & Winnie eliminated in Leg 7: Mona & Beth eliminated, because John & Jessica would find it easier to swim, being surfers.

Leg 12 with JJ eliminated in Leg 7: Caro & Jen/Pam & Winnie/Maxie F3, I predict a Maxie win, who weren't that far behind Bates & Anthony at the time.
Leg 12 with Pam & Winnie eliminated in Leg 7: Close race between Maxie and JJ, Maxie pull through barely.

Let me rephrase that with a different scenario, but similar idea... What if Marianna & Julia (Team Latina) never helped Lorena at the camel milking Roadblock?

Will the dating couple be eliminated?
If they did, which team would Shana & Jennifer U-Turn instead?
Would this have a distinctive outcome on the entire race?

So many questions... :pull

If Team Latina didn't help Lorena at the roadblock, the dating couple would fall for the 9th place finish curse and they'd be one of those teams on the first to worst list.
But since they were far behind all the other teams, whether Shana & Jennifer u-turn team Latina or not, Team Latina probably wouldn't survive the 4th leg.

Maybe this is not an exactly "what if" or maybe this should be posted in wishlist thread. But, what if the production remake early TAR seasons when it's not HD quality yet but with new teams? So, they'll visit all the countries in order they appear on their original season, do the exact same tasks, but with new twist(s) added, such as Express Pass, Double (Blind) U-turn(s), etc.

For example, they remake TAR 1 route with new teams. So, they'll start from Bethesda Fountain, head to South Africa, and so on. Maybe for us (RFF-ers), it'll be really easy to track them, but I just want to imagine early seasons of TAR being made HD quality. :lol:

I think TAR14 (Amanda & Kris, Mel & Mike, [maybe] Jaime & Cara) had the replacements because of the odd amount of imbalance with that season. Here's what I think:

Only Mona & Beth can use the u-turn since Joey & Meghan used their u-turn power in Vietnam, but if they got on the earlier flight, then they are on the same flight with all the other teams. Bates & Anthony arrived at the u-turn first anyway, so Joey & Meghan would still be u-turned. Mona & Beth have a speedbump, but if they beat Max & Katie at the detour, then Mona & Beth would probably u-turn Max & Katie, if not Caroline & Jennifer. So, if Joey & Meghan and Max & Katie received the u-turn, Max & Katie wouldn't win the leg, and Joey & Meghan would probably be eliminated. (I don't know how long Caroline was doing the roadblock.) However, if Joey & Meghan and Caroline & Jennifer received the u-turn, Caroline & Jennifer go home in Edinburgh. Then on Belfast, either Mona & Beth or Joey & Meghan would receive the F4 boot, and Joey & Meghan might even become underdogs on the final leg if they have survived their 2nd u-turn. Additionally, if Joey & Meghan survived their 2nd u-turn, they'd get the record for the team u-turned twice and still survive in both u-turns.

Probably no difference as "VaRalphasaurus" and the soccer twins took a LONG time on their Detour choice. Kerri & Stacy look a while finding the Pit Stop too since there was a photo of Kerri finishing the bottle dance in broad daylight, but arrived at the Pit Stop near pitch darkness.

Rachel & Dave would have probably gotten 6th in Paraguay, but would have still dominated almost every leg originally won from Italy to Hawaii.

That is not entirely true. We have been told a gazillion times that if you use a Blind U-TURN, you are still valid to use the second U-TURN. (Margie and Luke)

Until it is specifically mentioned that by using the Blind U-TURN, you can't use anymore U-TURN.. it still stands that way.

I'm sure Tammy and Victor are Chinese like Ronald and Christina... (those Mandarin spoken on the China legs) but I remembered reading from somewhere that are from Korea as well. Ronald and Christina are indeed from Taiwan though.

Ew, that would have been horrid. Lyn & Karlyn <3333333333333333333333333 Don't have anything against the Chos, though.

Honestly, I think that the BQs were better racers than the Chos anyway, and it would be a BQ/Romberly/Maddicts F3 with either BQs or Maddicts winning.

Post by: SamualDude on August 09, 2013, 02:54:04 AM
What if Uchenna & Joyce made the flight in Leg 9 of TAR All Stars and the leg was a non-elimination leg (which judging from the fact of two non-elimination legs in a row with marked for elimination penaltys that season). How would that effect the rest of the season?

The way I see it is Oswald & Danny get the marked for elimination penalty but get the Fast Forward in the next leg putting them in first and if things happened in Hong Kong the way they did I'd assume a Eric & Danielle elimination in Hong Kong

In Leg 11, The Yield still happens but who would be targeted more? I'd still assume a Oswald and Danny last place giving them a non elimination penalty.

Leg 12, It'd be safe to assume that Oswald and Danny still get eliminated due the difficulties getting to the Pitstop.

Leg 13 though, Who would win?
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Daniel on August 12, 2013, 02:14:06 AM
I think both U/J and BQs could win because the finale was mostly about cabs. Joyce doesn't seem to gossip like Danielle so probably they wouldn't get the safe opened too.. And schmirna would still place in 3rd. :lol:

Well if we go through leg by leg, Maria and Tiffany wound have been eliminated in Leg 4, Lance and Keri would probably still be eliminated Leg 5, Leg 6 was Mika's breakdown, so they survive. Leg 7 was Maria & Tiffany and Brian & Ericka problems, so Brain and Ericka would win. Leg 8 is an NEL. Leg 9 I think they would survive over Gary & Matt. Leg 10 is an NEL. Leg 11 was Globetrotter issues, so they would make Final 3.

Overall, they have a pretty good chance of making it to the Final 3, and a chance to win.

Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Jimmer on August 13, 2013, 09:03:08 PM
Leg 2: Amanda & Kris use their Express Pass and Ron & Christina are eliminated.
Leg 3: Mel & Mike eliminated still.
Leg 4: NEL
Leg 5: I would think Amanda & Kris (& Gary & Mallory without the EP) would struggle/fall back, but I think Jaime & Cara would still be eliminated.
Leg 6: Margie & Luke eliminated still.
Leg 7: I would think this leg would eliminate Amanda & Kris, but they might survive and Kent & Vyxsin would be eliminated.
Leg 8: NEL
Leg 9: Depends where U-Turns fall, Amanda & Kris could easily go here too, unless the tactic of targeting Jet & Cord stays and they're eliminated.
Leg 10 (onward): I just don't know how far they would make it after this (if they made it). The competition is just way too tight.

In summary, I believe there are many opportunities that Amanda & Kris would hiccup, my personal feeling it would be Leg 7 in India. I don't think it would change the outcome of the race with Kisha & Jen still winning.

Post by: redskevin88 on August 14, 2013, 11:29:17 PM
What if a u-turn/double u-turn existed in TAR15's 9th leg?

Assuming Meghan & Cheyne reach U-turn board first, they would more than likely u-turn Sam & Dan, which was behind them if I remember correctly, or , the Globetrotters, given that they already beaten them in a footrace. In that case, either of them would probably be out and Gary & Matt in final four.

If it was a double u-turn, Meghan & Cheyne would probably u-turn either Sam & Dan or the Globetrotters. If Sam & Dan were u-turned, they would probably u-turn the Globetrotters, if the Globetrotters, either Brian & Ericka or Gary & Matt would be out.

Well if TAR18 were a plain vanilla all stars and had the same range of seasons I'd say.

Season 12:
Ron and Christian
Kent and Vyxsin

Season 13:
Toni and Dallas
Ken and Tina

Season 14:
Margie and Luke
Kisha and Jen

Season 15:
Flight Time and Big Easy
Zev and Justin

Season 16:
Jet and Cord

Season 17:
Jill and Thomas
Gary and Mallory.

Mel/Mike were really popular as well... although I was definitely shocked to see Amanda/Kris and Kisha/Jen there. Jill/Thomas will probably not get a shot in any case... most likely will go to a team in Season 13 (both your mentioned choices).

Won't happen. Chippendales were a recruited team.

But to answer your question, they will probably replace either Gary & Matt in Bangladesh or Rob & Kelly in Turkey.

In the second scenario, in Amsterdam, Rob will throw Natalie & Nadiya into the North Sea rather than u-turn Abbie & Ryan putting them into the final four.

Best case scenario, Kelly & Christy go bye-bye! :wohoo: Aja & Ty and the belles would battle it out between Detours and Marisa & Brooke would still be eliminated in Leg 4 because of their navigation trouble. Mark & Bill's chances would be good in Cambodia because the floating village Detour and "mystery room" RB were relatively easy compared to the previous four legs. I'd say Mark & Bill would reach India before they get eliminated.

WALK!) was definitely one of the best episodes ever because it involved not only one but TWO footraces (for first and last) which had just the most epic drama ever <3333333333333333

Indeed. When Nate and Jen lost their first to Ron and Chris, whom I've never thought or see as a STRONG team considering their early legs placement.. I was :cheer: :yess: :wohoo: :luvya: :funny: and Nate and Jen having a meltdown while going to the pitstop <3

The tasks were so near each other that made teams see relatively the progress of each other also made the whole leg really EXCITING! <3

To me, the main reason why Dubrovnik rocked is because of the better planning of the course than some of the most recent seasons. The editing also plays a gigantic role in the success of a leg/episode. In TAR12, the editing of scenes, team reactions, and music made The Amazing Race a lot more adventurous and challenging. In recent seasons such as TAR22, the editing was awful in general. It felt more like I was watching a travel log video with unappreciative editors. (Sorry, it felt that way for me.) I hope Bertram hired back the previous editors from TAR11-TAR15 because it's not looking intriguing telling from the disasters of TAR20 and 21 with the significantly poor presentation of TAR22.
What if they never changed the penalty for a non-elimination leg to the Speed Bump and we were still using the marked for elimination penalty?
TAR12:
Kynt & Vyxsin would still be eliminated in 5th.
TK & Rachel would probably still survive with Nathan & Jen's transportation drama.

TAR13:
Ken & Tina would probably still survive over Kelly & Christy's Holi incident.
Dandrew would be eliminated, but Nick & Starr would probably still win over Toni & Dallas determining by the tree Detour, 100 clue box memory task, and finding final locations.

TAR14:
Despite Christie & Jodi and Mark & Michael already arriving last, there is no changing effect.

TAR15:
Maria & Tiffany may be eliminated over the Garrett & Jess and Brian & Ericka foot race.
Gary & Matt would still be eliminated.

TAR16:
Jeff & Jordan would still survive over Joe & Heidi because J&H quit the Detour.
Jet & Cord would lose their TAR last to first record, but still be in the race over Steve & Allie.

TAR17:
Michael & Kevin would probably still survive over Katie & Rachel.
Nick & Vicki will survive over Michael & Kevin in Leg 7, but will still be eliminated in South Korea after missing their crucial flight.

Unfinished Business:
Gary & Mallory would still beat Jet & Cord and maybe the Globetrotters in Zermatt.

TAR19:
Bill & Cathi is 80% eliminated in the double-elimination, but it looks really likely they can "survive" over Ethanna. :lol:
Liz & Marie still eliminated.
Amani & Marcus would survive over Jen's "lost" efforts. :funny:

TAR20:
Bopper & Mark would still be in the race over Kerri & Stacy, but fail as broadcasted during fishing trap Pit Stop, India.
Nary & Jamie still eliminated.

TAR21:
Josh & Brent eliminated in Bangladesh resulting in the Chips winning the season.
James & Abba and Twinnies would still be eliminated.

TAR22:
Maxie eliminated in safari Botswana leg. :hoot:
Mona & Beth eliminated in Edinburgh which would result in Joey & Meghan making it to Washington D.C.'s final leg. :tantrum

Post by: SamualDude on August 28, 2013, 05:27:24 PM

Yes, it has been mentioned before... that the finale of TAR 10 was horrible. Teams had to run on foot to different locations to complete their tasks. There was NO WAY Lyn and Karlyn would have managed a win unless both Tyler and James and Rob and Kim got lost or their cab drivers doesn't have the EZ Pass. It's kinda sad isn't it? :(

At least I'm not the only one! It was so unfair! They arrived at a destination first ready to yield and it's another HoO. Doors open and BQ's  Yield them but they overcome the leg to get beaten in a foot race for first.

I wish the final leg had been fairer to give them a chance at least (because they didn't even get that!). People probably thought they be second out after Mary and David and that's why I loved this season so much  :conf:

Yup, not tactical at all to eliminate a team that could win 2 million dollars (if a team like Chuck/Wynona won the first leg instead?). But very tactical to out a team, like Abbie and Ryan, who is strong and has proven to win many legs, do well for each leg... and has the drive to win the race because they not only win 1, but TWO million dollars.

I think Matt/Daniel still eliminated (unless other 2 teams take penalty). Chuck/Wynona non eliminated in Germany and maybe make final 4 as Mona/Beth get Uturned in Scotland. Could make final 3 with Jennifer meltdown, but then again I doubt all of this :( They are potentially in the running for All Stars, with Youtubers, Pwinnie & Dave/Connor from this season.

Mona & Beth would most likely U-Turn Bates & Anthony. The hockey brothers get to the U-Turn board first and will find out about them being U-Turned, resulting in them U-Turning Maxie because they like the country singers. Maxie would be eliminated in Edinburgh and Joey & Meghan make it to the final three, but Bates & Anthony still might win over anybody in the final 7 let alone 5.

You're forgetting that Mona/Beth had a Speed Bump as well, so the likelihood is that the outcome might have been the same (ie Joey/Meghan getting eliminated) unless Mona/Beth finished the Detour and got to the U-Turn board second, where they could have U-Turned either Maxie or the girls

I really liked Joey & Meghan, and never really got the whole gang up on them and Mona/Beth. Neither the Youtubers or Moms placed top 3 until Indonesia second leg I think? At that stage Dave/Connor, Pwinnie and Hockey had won legs.

Andy & Tommy would probably 2nd because they later found out where it was by themselves, then it will be a footrace for 3rd for Amani & Marcus and Ernie & Cindy.

If Amarcus get in the F3, then it will be between Jeremy & Sandy and Andy & Tommy for the win depending on how fast Andy & Tommy find The Dump.
If Ernie & Cindy get in the F3, then it will be between them and Andy & Tommy for the win.

TAR 19: Jeremy & Sandy will finish in 7th, Laurence & Zac will still finish in 6th, Bill & Cathi will still finish in 5th, and for the remaining 4 teams... it's gonna be hard to predict, since it was Jeremy & Sandy's taxi driver who called the other cabs.

TAR 18: Zev & Justin go home one leg earlier.

TAR 14: Quite impossible for them to pass Tammy & Victor, but if they got lucky with the flight, Tammy & Victor go home with the '9th place finish' curse. I can't remember the season so well. I wish I could watch it again.

Well,in this scenario Aaron & Arianne are eliminated instead of Heather & Eve.
Assuming they don't do the stupid mistake of putting gasoline on the car,they easily survive leg 5.
Leg 6,Andre & Damon have problems with the Morocco Police and fall far behind,so Heather & Eve survive again.
Leg 7,assuming they don't go for the Fast Forward or go and lose to Flo & Zach,me thinks they are eliminated here.

PS: BUT they had a chance of being the first female team to get to the Final 3.

Margie & Luke NEL'd (and there will be no more NELs/TBCs for the rest of the season), Ron & Chris finish in 8th, Gallory eliminated in 7th :( , since a season can only have 3 NELs + TBCs for the whole season (unless there's a double elim in the season or if a season has 13 legs).  Cowboys go home in 6th, Goths' mistake will still make them finish in 5th, Zev & Justin most probably will finish in 4th. F3 will be the sisters, Globetrotters, and Margie & Luke. It really depends on luck from here on, but I think Kisha & Jen will still win.

What a great What If scenario when this season finish... if Chester and Ephraim caught their flights or were booked on Nicole and Travis's flight, that means that one team may be with Tim and Marie (probably Jason and Amy because I think they were the last ones to have tickets to the first flight)... so what's gonna happen if that really happened? :funny:

They won't be able to check-in. Just like Zev and Justin? That would mean effective elimination right and it doesn't matter if it's TBC/NEL... lol.

Like Kaylani and Lisa, they lost theirs straight out in USA when the race began at the petrol kiosk and Phil said in interview he was all ready to go to the airport to eliminate them on the spot.

There are a lot of parent child teams that seemed to have better vibes and relationship going on than Hoskote and Naina, such as Wanda and Desiree, Andie and Jenna and Gus and Hera (who were highly entertaining)... so... my love for them is still neutral, similar to Brandon and Adam.

But after the two totally threw Marie off and told her in her face that they doesn't care if she has the Express Pass... <333333333333333333333333333333333333

Josh & Brent will definitely go out in the final 6. Abbie & Ryan will probably be u-turned again. Natalie & Nadiya will probably have their car problems again in Spain. James & Abba will probably squeak into the final three as somehow I don't see the twins making up time.

Here is one interesting thought, what if S18 and S19 were switched around? Who would make it from S18 for unfinished business and which team will miss out?

Bill & Cathi
Laurence & Zac
Justin & Jennifer
Liz & Marie
Kaylani & Lisa
Ethan & Jenna
Ron & Bill

Out of the 5 of them... it's really hard to guess ??? , but I think it would be Amani & Marcus or Andy & Tommy or both. It really depends on the producers.

This one might be interesting. :) If Kaylani & Lisa were eliminated in TAR 19 Leg 1 because Kaylani lost her passport and she didn't make it to her scheduled flight, these could be the possible effects:
TAR 19 Leg 1 - NEL (Nothing changes.)
TAR 19 Leg 2- single elimination (What if Ethan & Jenna survived Leg 2?)
hazard returned to TAR 20 (Misa & Maiya'll receive it.)
TAR 20 Leg 1 - NEL (Misa & Maiya receive hazard but get NEL'd.)
TAR 20 Leg 2 - double elimination (Who will finish in 11th? 10th? 9th? so on and so forth... Who will be in the F3?)

TAR 20 Leg 2 - double elimination (Who will finish in 11th? 10th? 9th? so on and so forth... Who will be in the F3?)

For TAR19 , I think Ethan & Jenna is pretty decent team. They were just screwed up by dropping their clue.
Leg 3 - Liz & Marie go home due to the taxi problem.  :'( :'(
Leg 4 - NEL
Leg 5 - This was so random because I don't know what'll happen with the bus time table in Thailand. But I think they may survive it. So Jeremy & Sandy go home due to they got lost and traffic problem.
Leg 6 - NEL
Leg 7 - JJ go home due to Jennifer's RB.
Leg 8 - Laurence & Zac still go home due to getting lost to the pit stop & U-Turn.
Leg 9 - NEL
Leg 10 - Bill & Catie go home due to getting lost in Belgium.  :'(
 
Now leg 11 is really hard to predict since Jeremy & Sandy's cab is the one that shared the information with the others. So at least, They probably made it to Final 4.  :conf:


Then, TAR 20 , I think this is the interesting one.
Leg 2 - I think the Speedbum will slow down two girls a quite of time. So they will probably end up in the last bus. Which will made them survive along with another FF team. (Since bus 2 is delayed due to an accident). So bye-bye Elliot & Andrew and Dave & Cherri.
Leg 3 - Vanessa & Ralph go home due to the Detour problem.
Leg 4 - NEL
Leg 5 - Kerri & Stacy still go home since they have both problems about RB and direction.
Leg 6 - Joey "Fitness" & Danny go home due to the FF.
Leg 7 - NEL
Leg 8 - This is the hard one. Since I don't know that which team will work better at the camping task in last leg. But I'll give Nary & Jamie a little more credit. So Misa & Maiya will be NEL'ed last leg. Then, Brendon & Rachel may U-Turn someone to make them feel safe since Vanessa & Ralph was already eliminated. And the Speedbum in this leg is probably the most difficult Speedbum in the entire race. So... It was so hard to anticipate it. But I think Misa & Maiya will end their race here.  :ascared

Oh. I forgot about the F3. I think I'll make 2 cases of probability;

1. If Misa & Maiya miraculously survive Leg 8.
Leg 9 - NEL
Leg 10 - This leg was pretty tough for the girls. It was super physical leg. So this is the real problem for them. But I think they may survive it since Bopper & Mark is really far behind and they may probably hit the FF.  :funny: (I need hair to be pretty!)
Leg 11 - Here we go again , It was the one that pretty hard to predict. But I believe they'll somehow manage to beat Brenchel up. And be in F3 instead them.  :conf: (But my imaginary F3 was Davechel , Misa & Maiya and Brenchel  :hearts:)

2. If Nary & Jamie survive Leg 8.
Everything will be the same. Except that they will survive Leg 10 easier than Misa & Maiya. And they probably end up being in F3. (But I don't think they can beat Brenchel somehow)

Not exactly "a lot more boring," but we won't get to see the drama between the 2nd EP, which will never make me like the 2EP twist. :( So it was all thanks to the ER Docs not winning the 1st leg, and the Exes winning it instead. I never appreciated the 2EP twist during TAR22 because of the alliance, which made the twist boring. The u-turn was also boring thanks to another alliance.

What if Laurence/Zac casts in TAR 22 and Dave/Connor casts in TAR 19 instead (rule of both seasons unchanged), How will go far

 :hello2: , and :wel2 to RFF, toanglobal!

If Laurence & Zac were in TAR22...
Leg 1: Most likely to survive, but has a chance to get eliminated due to the luck task on this leg.
Leg 2: Twin Doctors not knowing how to swim. :groan:
Leg 3: TBC
Leg 4: JJ,EP
Leg 5: Chynona out in 8th.
Leg 6: NEL
Leg 7: They have a chance to survive, but I don't know how this leg will go with them.
Leg 8: Chynona not here anymore, probably booting Youtube
Leg 9: NEL
Leg 10: Probably Roller Derby gets booted out.
Leg 11: CaroJen out.
F3 (assuming they survived legs 1 & 7): Maxie, Hockey, Laurence & Zac
If they didn't survive leg 1, Firefighters in gets boot Botswana, sparing Pwinnie who might make it to the F3/F4.
If they didn't survive leg 7, Pwinnie makes it to the F3/F4.
And because of the luck task, I'm not so sure who will receive the 2nd EP, since the twin docs are there to make the alliance.

If Dave & Connor were in TAR19...
Leg 1: NEL
Leg 2: I don't think Team Cancer will screw up big time, so they will most likely survive.
Leg 3: Pretty hard to tell, there was an intense footrace this leg. But just in case they survive this leg, read on...
Leg 4: NEL
Leg 5: Liz & Marie still out in 8th.
Leg 6: NEL
Leg 7: W-turn will probably remain unused here, unless Team Cancer has to make a strategic move. JJSibs still out in 7th.
Leg 8: Regardless of Team Cancer receiving the u-turn or not, I think they'll survive still. Jeremy & Sandy will finish 6th instead.
Leg 9: TBC
Leg 10: It's them or Bill & Cathi going home this leg. In case it's Bill & Cathi, read on...
Leg 11: Too hard to tell. :P The F3 teams during this time got lucky.
Now if Team Cancer goes home in 10th/11th, Ethan & Jenna will either survive all the way to the F4 or will be screwed by the u-turn.
If they finish 9th, I think Kaylisa will screw up in leg 4 & 5, Liz & Marie will survive those legs instead. The twins will probably end their race in 6th or 5th. If 6th, the outcome of the race will be the same, with Ernie & Cindy winning, followed by... If 5th, Jeremy & Sandy goes home in 6th, Bill & Cathi will survive to the F4, and they could have a chance to be the oldest winners in TAR history!
If Team Cancer gets booted in leg 8, same outcome.
If they get booted out in leg 10, Bill & Cathi to the F4!

They can go to F3 because most task in leg 7and 8 require team a physical skills
Leg 7 NEL (but they have huge advantage in Route info camp contruction task)
Leg 8 They would U-Turn Art/JJ forcing them to complete Air Supply Task and U-Turn Brenchel but both U-turned teams survive because them go far ahead "Kinder teachers"
Leg 9 NEL but I don't know they can dance bollywood movie better than Art/JJ
Leg 10 Art/JJ would be eliminated due to lost precious time in previous leg (as a result of being U-Turned in leg 8 and Bopper and Mark

Leg 2: Dave & Cherie Roadblock Fail and Bus
Leg 3: Vanessa & Ralph + Elliot & Andrew Detour Fail
Leg 4: NEL
Leg 5: Kerri & Stacy and Nary & Jamie struggles at the RB.
Leg 6: They could possibly go home but Nary & Jamie and Vanessa & Ralph struggled through the leg so IDK
Leg 7: NEL Nary & Jamie too far behind
Leg 8: Nary & Jamie's too far behind.

If they could make major mistakes, they would most likely be in Legs 2 (bus), 5(rb?), 7(NEL, but Nary & Jamie fell behind because of a physical task. During this leg, they were the only FF team remaining.)

So... if golf sisters survived leg 1 but fell behind in leg 7, how would things go? If fitness buddies finish 11th, who would finish in 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th?

What if Ryan and Abbie somehow survive The Netherlands?
i.e. they make their first intended flight (which I believe would have landed them ahead of the twins) or the Chippendales didn't go through with the u-turn (and Ryan and Abbie u-turn and beat Josh and Brent), etc.

My intrigue in this scenario is due to the fact that Ryan studied in Spain (I think this was mentioned in his bio) and at the start of leg 9 Abbie corrects Ryan in thinking that the Dutch flag is France IN FRENCH. The next two countries visited on this race were Spain and France. Assuming Ryan has at least a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish and Abbie of French would this be enough to propel them to the final, their $2 million and one of the greatest comebacks in race history?

What do you think..?

Let's say... they didn't have a Frankfurt problem :) , and they survived without even having to see Beekman Boys. Then disregarding the u-turn, Abbie & Ryan will still survive.
And if this happens, they'll be happy that they won't be seeing the Twinnies in the F3.
If the Chips still u-turn them, and they survive, then there will be alliance problems.
But them winning the $2M really depends on the Hello-Goodbye memory task. :umn:

They'll prob'ly be slowed down if they choose elephants (since it's a lil' physical). I dunno how they'll do in the angklung roadblock. So... I think they'll end up in 4th or 5th. :( If ER Docs didn't get help, they'll prob'ly be in 3rd or 4th. If they chose the birds and got on the 1st train, they should be 3rd; if last, most likely 4th (or 5th).

TAR19: Max & Katie
Leg 1- NEL
Leg 2- Let's Assume they survived.
Leg 3- Kaylisa goes home.
Leg 4- NEL
Leg 5- They'll survive as long as they don't make any mistakes or if they're very lucky.
Leg 6- NEL
Leg 7- JJsibs crashed here. Maxie will not make such mistakes. (Even with the w-turn in play, I think almost any team would survive because of Jennifer's big mistake.)
Leg 8- I think they'll survive, I think.
Leg 9- KOR (keep on racing)
Leg 10- They'll most likely survive.
Leg 11- Too hard to tell.
Conclusion: They have a big chance of winning. :wohoo:

TAR22: Jeremy & Sandy
Leg 1- Since Maxie isn't here, Katie couldn't convince the other teams to take a penalty. CaroJen or Firefighters will be booted out.
Leg 2- Twin docs' swimming problem.
Leg 3- KOR
Leg 4- JJ EP :res:
Leg 5- Team Cancer's withdrawal.
Leg 6- NEL
Leg 7- I think Jeremy & Sandy will not survive this leg, I think.
Leg 8- Chynona booted out here.
Leg 9- NEL
Leg 10- YouTube goes home.
Leg 11- [F4: Pwinnie, Hockey Bros, Firefighters/CaroJen, Roller Derby Moms] I think Pwinnie will go home. :(
Leg 12- Hockey Bros win. :whoop:

If Amy/Daniel had found an another cab and gone to Wijaya Motor Shop early, Gary Will would be eliminated due to struggle in RB task
Leg 3 Catlin/Brittany goes home due to cyclo rider problem
Leg 4 without Gary/Will, trexi eliminates because of taxi problem (two times), this will be broken alliance between Twinnie and Trexi )-**
Leg 5 NEL
Leg 6 Monster Truck gets out unless Amy/Daniel also uses subway rather than taxi
The problems would begin in leg 7, if the dating on and off couple take a flight via another place, they will rush to moscow early along with Rockers, Chipps and Twinnie and can complete alphabetized task (I wonder with the artifical legs she can or cant swim in Synchronized task), if they also missed flight in frankfurt along with Abbie/Ryan and beekman boys, they would force to complete synchronized task and might get 4 hours penalty along with beekman boys, they still survived leg 7 and 8 due to problem buti dont know amy/Daniel can complete RB task (calculate Russian time zones), I think in the detour they will choose shakers task because it is more easier
Leg 9 without trexi it depends Nana complete the entire legs or FF, if Nana completes FF the Chipps will U-Turn Abbie/Ryan, when Abbie/Ryan goes to U-Turn board and will U-Turn beekman boys force both of them go back to complete the remaining detour task and the dating divorcees will outrun beekman boys
Leg 10 Abbie will easily complete her RB task, if Amy forces to complete this task, she will face many difficulty and may finish last in NEL
Leg 11 Abbie/Ryan will survive this leg because of Amy/Daniel speed bump and Nana self-driving
Leg 12 it depend who completes this first RB, if Ryan Choose it, it will easily for Abbie in goodbye-hello task, in vice versa Ryan will face many difficulty in final ones

What if in S23, Leg 9 is NEL and Leg 10 is elimination of 5th place?

Same question.

What if in S21, Leg 9 is NEL (Abbie & Ryan got saved and keep the $2 million) and Leg 10 is elimination of 5th place?

What if in Leg 10 of TAR21 has a double U-Turn and the Beekmans got U-Turned and eliminated?

S23:
Ally & Ashley wouldn't survive leg 10 unfortunately. :funny:

S21:
NaNa gets F5 boot. Beekman will be the F4 boot. Abbie & Ryan might've won in this case.

I think Ally and Ashley would survive. I'll be the first to admit that they are a mediocre team, but I'm pretty sure that they would easily complete the Make-Up detour - In this case, bye bye Leo and Jamal

TAR 15: Meghan & Cheyne would either use it on the 4th leg or on the haybales, but it would only affect their placement on leg 8. The episode title will also change.
TAR 16: Jordan & Jeff would use it either on the leg 3 detour or on the leg 4 detour. If leg 3, they'd still finish in 7th. If leg 4, Brent & Caite would replace them. Then they'd make it to the F5. Since Brent & Caite went home earlier, depending on who u-turns who... never mind, that's how far I can predict.
TAR 21: If Abbie & Ryan had one instead of the DYM... I think they'd use it on the Leg 5 rb. Then, Jaymes & James wouldn't necessarily u-turn them, but Trey & Lexi still would. And everything really depends on the u-turn on Leg 9.
If Abbie /Ryan ryan had EP, I thought the dating couple would use it in leg 8 RB, Ryan really struggle in this calculation Russian time zones, another question if Abbie completed leg 8 RB instead of Ryan and passed in first attempt they would start next leg about an hour earlier and might get a better flight and despite the U-turn they still ahead beekman boys

Abbie had difficulty with the Bangladesh2 roadblock. They will only use the EP on leg 8 if they decided not to use it on leg 5, which I think is unlikely, because Abbie took a lot of time finishing that rb.

What if Jamil (or was that Idries) had never found the clue during the sandcastle rb? If they also decided to go for the 4-hour penalty, I think they would not survive this leg. (They will finish in 11th.) Since Pwinnie fell behind the following leg (and most likely they will finish in 10th), how will the race go? Note: YouTubers can't be u-turned in leg 5 because they got to the Vietnamese w-turn in 2nd (Pwinnie were 1st).

Season 23's finally over, and I can finally post my list of TAR23 What ifs: :xmas146
Quote what you want to answer and don't take all of these what ifs at the same time. :cmas24
1.) What if Brandam made it to the 1st flight on the 1st leg?
2.) What if the ER Docs were on the 2nd flight on the 1st leg?
3.) What if ER Docs didn't get a penalty on the 1st leg? Would they use their EP on one of the 1st 4 legs except the 1st leg? Assuming they give the 2nd EP to Jamy, which task would make Jamy use their EP?
4.) What if Tim & Marie made it to the 1st bus on leg 2?
5.) What if Bingo stayed with the pack? How far would they have gone?
6.) What if the Bunnies didn't make the smart move at the airport? (This would probably have them receive the 2nd EP from Tim & Marie.) Speaking of which, which task would the Bunnies use their EP if Tim & Marie give it to them on leg 4/5?
7.) What if ChesEph didn't have any bad flights in leg 3? How far could they have gone?
8.) What if ChesEph made it to the same flight with Tim & Marie?
9.) What if Tim & Marie used the EP on the detour in leg 3?
10.) What if Brandam didn't switch detours and didn't get u-turned? How far could they have gone?
11.) What if Jamy was able to complete the FF?
12.) What if the Bunnies made it to the same boat with the Exes and the Ice girls on leg 7?
13.) What if Jamy knew Tim & Marie were behind and u-turned them?
14.) What if leg 8's w-turn was in leg 9 instead?
15.) What if leg 9 was a NEL and leg 10 was not?
16.) What if Jamy caught up to the 1st train on leg 9?
17.) What if Tim & Marie's cab didn't break down and they made it to the 1st train on leg 9?
18.) What if both the Exes and Jamy make it to the 1st train on leg 9?
19.) What if the Ice girls brought the sugar canes with them on their 1st trip from the market?
20.) What if Jamy didn't help the ER Docs? Will the Ice girls catch up to them and have them eliminated instead? If yes, how far could they have gone?
21.) What if the Afghanimals got in to the F3 instead of the ER Docs?

3. The way you're assuming this wouldn't affect much either.
4. Still doesn't matter.
6. Timmarie wouldn't U-Turn them, so they would survive UAE and also Indonesia most probably, eliminating Tracole and possibly leading to them in F3?

Tim & Marie knew that the Bunnies were ahead of them. Bunnies would u-turn anyone in case they have to. (since they were first) If the Bunnies were to think like YouTube in TAR22, they'd u-turn the Ice Girls.
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Keepcopz on December 11, 2013, 05:56:10 AM
3. I think they still keep the EP till leg 8. But Jamy probably use EP on leg 6 RB to avoid getting last due to the FF problem. Not effect anything, only lessen the drama which will make this season so bland.  :cmaslol

6. Bunny will probably got EP on leg 5? Used on leg 7 RB. Then no u-turn on leg 8 for them and also no speed bum. So I think they will survive pass UAE. Then if they choose the detour wisely in Indonesia, they will make it to F4.  :cmas9  But probably go home in Japan since the robot RB seem too physical for them to handle.  :cmas4

9. Since they cannot use EP on leg 5, very likely to see them get u-turned but I think they still survive.

13. It will be fighting for the last spot between bunny and TimMarie but TimMarie had better chance to survive.  :cmas4

14. Jamy u-turn TimMarie and ER u-turn Afganimal. So ice girl will probably safe.  :cmas16

16-18. Ice girl still go home.

19-20. ER go home. Ice girl probably still go home in Japan instead.

21. The finale totally based on the dropping flour task. So if the Afganimal complete it in 2-3 times, they still have a chance since the rest of the leg is really physical. So they got a bit advantage of MM team.

6.) What if the Bunnies didn't make the smart move at the airport? (This would probably have them receive the 2nd EP from Tim & Marie.) Speaking of which, which task would the Bunnies use their EP if Tim & Marie give it to them on leg 4/5?
If the Bunnies chose not to go to the executive lounge for the flight to Portugal, they would be in the back alone as Time & Marie and Jason & Amy would get the seats. They're safe no matter due to Chester & Ephraims horrid luck with flights that leg. They didn't anger Tim & Marie, but the exes could have still been leveraged by the ER doctors during the drive to the pit stop in Norway. If they didn't and the Bunnies received the EP before that happened, they would have used the EP at the race track roadblock since they did have good legs in Poland and Austria. This means they would avoid the SB, which is given to Ally & Ashley. Abu Dhabi II, depends on who Tim & Marie U-Turns.  Could still be them or Ally & Ashley since Tim & Marie didn't have a lock-n-load reason like what actually happened. But either way, the Ice & Girls would have probably been eliminated. Indonesia I, depends on whether they got on the first train, and how good they are with the Angklung. If the Bunnies survived (ER doctors eliminated), Indonesia II wouldn't be that hard for them I think. I'm pretty sure they would have chosen the make up detour if they could, and they would be better off than Leo & Jamal. After that, it's the robot roadblock that would determine who gets in. Jason & Amy and Tim & Marie would get in, so its between Leo & Jamal and Nicky & Kim.

11.) What if Jamy was able to complete the FF?
They would have won the leg, but wouldn't affect the next legs much because they bunched up on the flight to Abu Dhabi.


12.) What if the Bunnies made it to the same boat with the Exes and the Ice girls on leg 7?
Judging from the departure times the next leg, I'm pretty sure the Ice Girls would have been last at the race track, and they wouldn't have survived the next leg in my opinion, because they did get a bit lost in Abu Dhabi. It comes down to whether they're good swimmers or not. Let's say the the Ice Girls got eliminated in Abu Dhabi 2, the Bunnies may pass Nicole at the Roadblock, depending on what time they arrived since Amy only stayed to help because the Ice Girls weren't there yet. Indonesia 2, I'm guessing they're good with make up, so Leo & Jamal could end up being last because of the tea plantation disaster. Onto Japan, it all depends on the Bunnies not messing up the Robot Roadblock. There's a chance that the F3 would have been Jason & Amy, Tim & Marie, and Nicky & Kim. But I don't think they'll win at the totem pole challenge.

14.) What if leg 8's w-turn was in leg 9 instead?
So Nicky & Kim and Leo & Jamal wouldn't be U-Turned. The bottom two would have been the Bunnies and the Ice Girls. Since Nicky & Kim arrived at Wadi while Ally & Ashley were still doing the Roadblock, it would have been a mad dash (drive?) to the pit stop at Jebel Hafeet. After that, see no. 12.

15.) What if leg 9 was a NEL and leg 10 was not?
So Ally & Ashley survived leg 9 and received a Speed Bump in leg 10. Depends on the Speed Bump. If they finished that quickly, and since teams were pretty much equalized at the Make Up detour (which I'm guessing they could do well in), Leo & Jamal would still be last and eliminated. In Japan, it would come down to the robot roadblock, so Ally & Ashley could replace Nicole & Travis, or maybe not.

18.) What if both the Exes and Jamy make it to the 1st train on leg 9?
With teams equalized at the detour, Ally & Ashley would be dead last and eliminated. Events happen as they did :(

19.) What if the Ice girls brought the sugar canes with them on their 1st trip from the market?
They would be ahead of Tim & Marie and Jason & Amy, but not by much. Since they did finish the angklung roadblock quickly, and with Amy being behind and probably not helping Nicole, Travis & Nicol would be eliminated. Indonesia II, they could be pretty good at the make up detour, so Leo & Jamal would still be last. Japan, depends if Leo & Jamal would get seats on the flight for Ally & Ashley. If they finished the bowling detour around the same time, Ally & Ashley would arrived first at the Roadblock. Marie and Amy would get it done fast by themselves, so its down to Leo and Ally/Ashley. In the Finale, Leo & Jamal would probably be better at the totem pole challenge, but that's just a wild guess. It all comes down to who can catch up to Jason & Amy after the flour bag roadblock.

The first 4 that come to mind are:

1) S17 - What if Michael & Kevin hadn't taken a taxi when they should have went by foot on Leg 7?

Potential Outcome - Michael still would have struggled at the RB, but Chad & Stephanie would have been Eliminated instead, allowing them to stay in the race and maybe, just maybe get to the final 3. Wishful Thinking!  :cmaslol

2) S21 - What if James & Abba didn't lose their packs or had taken their packs out of the cab with them?

Potential Outcome - Beekman's would have been NEL in Leg 7, and probably Eliminated in Leg 8, completely changing the final results of the race!

3) S23 - What if the ticket agent hadn't messed up Chester & Ephraim's tickets on Leg 3?

Potential Outcome - They would have been on one of the first flights to Portugal, resulting in Tim & Marie being last and Eliminated, and this would have DEFINITELY changed the entire Season. We wouldn't have had Tim & Marie "Antics", they would have been Eliminated with both Express Passes. This is probably one of the BIGGEST "What Ifs" ever as it would have changed everything about Season 23!

4) S23 - What if Travis did the final RB instead of Nicole?

Potential Outcome - Simple, they probably would have won!  :cmaslol :xmas146

Very big changes if they were eliminated in 9th.
1.) They'd receive the 9th place curse. :cmaslol
2.) They'll be like TAR22's TeamJJ, except (since they still have both EPs)... worse. :cmas11
3.) We wouldn't see Brandam mocking Marie about the 2nd EP.
4.) We wouldn't see the EP drama with ER Docs.
5.) ER Docs would never have the 2nd EP.
6.) Jamy would've won leg 5.
7.) No cab drama with Jamy.
8.) The other teams wouldn't be bothered by their bickering in the dates detour. :cmaslol And it could possibly be more boring to watch. :cmas11
9.) ER Docs wouldn't be able to skip the leg 8 detour.
10.) ER Docs u-turn on Afghanimals might not happen if the Afghanimals work faster than ER Docs.
11.) Bunnies wouldn't get u-turned by the Exes
12.) We wouldn't see Tim acing the music tasks like the Vienna rb and Angklung rb.
13.) We wouldn't see Marie's funny expressions on the cobra ari. :cmaslol
14.) We wouldn't see Marie with the boiling eggs problem. :cmaslol
15.) We wouldn't see the slight cab drama outside Narita Airport
16.) We wouldn't be able to see their comeback from last to 1st at the robot rb.
17.) Maybe Jamy would've won the penultimate leg.
18.) No amazing moment at the finish line with Tim & Marie.
19.) They wouldn't be invited back to TAR24.
20.) Last but not the least: If Tim & Marie were eliminated in Portugal for not using and giving the EPs, the season would've been more boring.

Back to season 15, what if Maria & Tiffany miraculously survive the Amsterdam leg and Brian & Ericka go home?

Since the next leg 8 and 10 was NEL. Leg 9 with the father-son team (with pink hair, can't remember their name) getting lost and clueless with RB and Leg 11 with FT & BE 'FRANZ' problem. Could they go into F3 and actually be the first FF team to win? Since the finale was in Las Vegas which they were really similar to and they would knock the final task completely with counting chips.

1.) Country girls out in 11th, Twin Docs in 10th, JJ in 9th, Cancer in 8th, Firefighters probably in 7th (saving Pwinnie), Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, Pwinnie or Roller Derby Moms in 4th, Hockey Bros will still be the winners.

2.) Pwinnie in 10th :cmas4 , JJ in 9th, Cancer in 8th, Maxie probably in 7th :cmas4 , Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, CaroJen in 4th, Hockey Bros will still be the winners.

3.) JJ get DYM, no EP alliance will be made at the Tahiti airport. JJ will still be eliminated in Bali since they will have a bad leg there without the EP. Hockey Bros win EP, they'll probably use it on the Bali leg's detour. Since the u-turn alliance was CaroJen's idea, Youtube will still get the u-turn.

4.) I doubt that teams are allowed to change donkeys (besides switching detours twice), but if they survived Botswana 2, goodbye Maxie :cmas4 . Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, Pwinnie or Roller Derby Moms in 4th, Hockey Bros still win.

Final 3 would be Joey & Meghan, Max & Katie, and Bates and Anthony
Results would stay the same with, Joey & Meghan coming in 3rd rather than Mona & Beth.

UNLESS Joey & Meghan don't get lost and get really lucky at the spy task in which case, they would win.

Leg 4 or 5 for Rob & Sheila
Leg 7 for Matt & Daniel in my opinion.
Ok. . . If they survived their 1st legs, let's say they were eliminated in those legs.
So for TAR21, if the Chippendales had not overtaken Rob & Sheila, Chippendales go home 1st. Then with Amy & Daniel getting lost and Caitlin & Brittany's bad cab in Indonesia, they'd be the next 2 to go. Then if Rob & Sheila would be eliminated on the 4th leg, Gary & Will could keep racing. Leg 5's a NEL. Leg 6 with Rob & Kelley falling behind. Then the Rockers' passport problems. Then the F5 would have Abbie & Ryan, Twinnies, Trexi, Beekman, and Gary & Will. Now if Gary & Will took the Frankfurt connection in Leg 7, they'd get the F5 boot; but if not, Abbie & Ryan would go home due to the fact that they were u-turned. Then from here on. . . it's a bit hard to predict.
On the other hand, if Matt and Daniel's boat didn't capsize twice, Country singers go home 1st, then Idries & Jamil due to their water problems, then stubborn John and her poor gf not using the ep, and then Dave & Connor's withdrawal. Leg 6 = NEL. If Matt & Daniel goes home on the 7th leg, then Pam & Winnie would be safe from their big mistake. Then Chuck & Wynona's penalty would boot them out. Leg 9 = NEL. Then the F5 would have Pam & Winnie, Max & Katie, Hockey, Roller Derby, and YouTube. Team YouTube's flight mistake would send them home next. Then on leg 11, since the country singers went home 1st, either Roller Derby or Pam & Winnie won't race for the million, depending if Pam & Winnie gets lost or not.
TAR 21 version if the Chippendales had not overtaken Rob & Sheila, Chippendales go home 1st and subsequently the alliance which used to U-Turn abbie/ryan in leg 9 was not formed therefore Abbie/Ryan went to F4 and Gary/Will finished as 5th place, in leg 11 Twinnies eliminated due to self-driving tasks and in final leg the Dating Divorcees could win if Ryan completed bungee jump, memory task isnot skill for ryan

Back to season 15, what if Maria & Tiffany miraculously survive the Amsterdam leg and Brian & Ericka go home?

Since the next leg 8 and 10 was NEL. Leg 9 with the father-son team (with pink hair, can't remember their name) getting lost and clueless with RB and Leg 11 with FT & BE 'FRANZ' problem. Could they go into F3 and actually be the first FF team to win? Since the finale was in Las Vegas which they were really similar to and they would knock the final task completely with counting chips.

If they miraculously survive the Amsterdam leg...
My guts tell me that they'll replace the Father-son team who had 2 bad legs. :mas25 Gary & Matt (father&son) were eliminated because everyone else was luckier than them.

But I don't think that Maria will have problem during the candle RB since she's pretty smart during the gold detour, also with the spelling RB.  :cmas22

Whatever, I just want them to be in F3 so bad back to that season.  :cmaslol So my comment is pretty biased to the other.

What if there wasn't a singing rb equalizer back in TAR23 leg6? What if Jamy was eliminated in 7th?
It is complicated, it help the Oklahoma boys survived at least another two leg, Bunnies 6th, without Jamy The ER Doctors 5th, the Afganimals 4th, Final will Tim/Danny, Ice girls and Timmarie and Ice girls can finish first in RB task and win TAR 23 and have 11 consecutive legs without lower ranked finish!

All of you assume the Ice Girls and Oklahome do not struggle in any task until F3 which is, quite, unbelievable...

If Lance & Keri are still in it... Globetrotters go out in 7th due to their suitcase problems. Leg 7 is non-elimination with Brian & Ericka, with Gary & Matt out. Zev & Justin into final five. If Lance & Keri are still out, no changes, expect Globetrotters are still in it.

They are slightly similar to Ron & Christina, but because they were eliminated Leg 1....
I like Ron & Christina, but I don't like them because I hate arranged marriages so much. So I mainly dislike Hoskote, I like Naina and I hope she gets to pick her husband, because it's HER marriage.

Idries & Jamil eliminated in leg 2 of TAR 22 DUE TO aquaphobia lead to struggle in pick a pearl detour task, a question arose if Twin doctors registered to CBS and accepted earlier such as TAR 21 (no water-related task until leg 7 a non-elimination leg in Russia and chippendales cast were accepted as TAR 22, would Twin doctors go to leg 9 (assume James & Abba still lost their passport and the twin doctors faced flight connection drama at Frankfurt)
Answer question 1 from Bookworm (the ER Doctors eliminated in leg 11), Jamy still win the race
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Karpov617 on December 25, 2013, 09:46:56 AM
I love answering questions like this :)

What if Leo & Jamal found the shears in a few minutes in Leg 10?
- So Travis & Nicole would get the Speed Bump in Japan.
- Assuming that Leo & Jamal still got on the earlier flight, they would arrive at the Roadblock in first.
- Travis & Nicole would be caught up at the Speed Bump as Jason & Amy would continue with the Roadblock. Marie would pass them all, so the question is, would Amy and Nicole still help each other with Leo having a larger lead on the task (and probably noticing the buttons earlier)?
- I hope they wouldn't. But I don't know who is worse at the task since they basically made it an Intersection.  :cmas11
- If Jason & Amy gets through, they would probably still win with Amy's luck at the flour drop task. If not, it's between Tim & Marie and Leo & Jamal (guessing they'd be better at the flour drop task than Tracole).

What if there wasn't any answer-sharing in the Liechtenstein Roadblock?
- Justin got the first correct answer. I think Jen had the correct answer anyway and just asked Justin for confirmation. Flight Time and Jet both got lost, and Gary didn't (not shown at least. I rewatched this scene specifically). Vyxsin also got the answer on her own.
- So it's possible that only Jet and Flight Time had to restart, or Jet, Flight Time, Gary, and Jen had to restart. In either scenario, Jet & Cord wouldn't be last and wouldn't be U-Turned. So would they U-Turn someone else?
- If not, Flight Time & Big Easy would be eliminated after losing some of the tickets, or the U-Turned team would be (whoever that would have been). The rest is hard to decipher because of FT & BE's influence (like flustering Kent & Vyxsin).
- If so, FT & BE are out in Switzerland 1. Zev & Justin are out in Switzerland 2. Brazil is anyone's guess.
- Hope Kisha & Jen would still win in this scenario though.  :cmas20

What if John used the Express Pass in Bali?
- Chuck & Wynona would have been eliminated in Bali.
- In Vietnam, Pam & Winnie would target John & Jessica instead of YouTube. I have a feeling that they won't use the second U-Turn for their allies, and reserve that for revenge. So Mona & Beth or Joey & Meghan would be U-Turned too, (unless one of those two teams uses it). Dave & Connor have quit that leg so nobody else goes home.
- Botswana, how would John & Jessica fare in the Detour? Would they get the fire like Bates & Anthony? Would they switch early like Joey & Meghan? Would they immediately choose the trap detour like Pam & Winnie? Or would they stick with and fail at the for detour like Max & Katie? Anyway, next leg, Pam & Winnie's detour disaster (deserving of an All Stars comeback  :cmas22) happens and pretty sure locks every one else for the Final 6.
- Lots of bunching up in Switzerland, and it all depends on the cheese task and number of taxis waiting nearby (since Joey & Meghan just walked because no more taxis were left). My bet is Caroline & Jennifer getting eliminated here.
- Final 5 in Germany, Mona & Beth and Bates & Anthony had problems all around and it's anyone's guess. Especially how John & Jessica would affect their whole alliance's decision on flights and how the Double U-Turn in Scotland would turn out. Too many factors that could mix in here, so yeah :)
- My guess is the final 3: Bates & Anthony, John & Jessica (because I could see them U-Turning thier own allies at that point), and Max & Katie, with the same winners.

What if Nicole, Amy, and Marie all hit the flour target on their first try?
- The order would have been: Travis & Nicole, Jason & Amy, and Tim & Marie for the rest of the leg until the currency task.
- After that, it's anyone's guess, really  :cmas5 More suspenseful if so :)

Here's one!
What if Travis & Nicole hadn't made their one, albeit, critical mistake on Leg 1 and won the double EPs? Who would "earn" the second one?
Then Jason & Amy would win the 2nd Express Pass and everything would be a lot more boring this season.
Jamy used the EP to bypass leg 6 detour, Tim & Marie eliminated in leg 5 and Brandam saved (8th), Tim & Danny 7th (Brandon Squires have a playing music skill while Tim Wiyninger havent), Ice Girls 6th, ER doctors 5th, i cant predict more

Questions for bus transport in leg 2 of TAR 20 and TAR23
In TAR 20, if the first bus to Buenos Aires has been broken rather than second one and surpassed by second and third buses, would Army couple use Ep, who would eliminated and what would happen later including leg 3 if Dave/Rachel used EP in leg 2 RB task
In TAR 23 if the second bus to Santiago has been broken it windows and surpassed by second and third, that would mean the Bingo finished at 6th rather than eliminated and would Tim/Marie handover second EP to the Bunnies and both use immediately to bypass roadblock and would happen beyond if
1)The Exes refused to handover 2nd EP as well as use it in RB
2)Handover 2nd EP to the bunnies but not use 1st EP
3)Handover 2nd EP to the bunnies and the Bunnies not use EP
4)Both team use EP to bypass RB
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Bookworm on December 30, 2013, 06:45:09 AM
If the First Bus to Buenos Aires broke down, then Brenchel would have been eliminated.

If Dave/Rachel used the EP on Leg 2 RB, they still would have incurred the penalty on Leg 3 RB. However, they could have fallen anywhere from 6th place to LAST, because they didn't have the EP to use on the Detour.

I'm confused which bus broke down? You said SECOND, but then said it was passed by the second & third buses.
If the 1st Bus broke down: Jamy would have been eliminated, which would have changed the season dramatically.
2nd Bus broke down: Tim & Marie would most likely NOT give the EP to the bunnies, and the Bunnies would have been eliminated.
3rd Bus broke down: Bingo Eliminated, nothing changes.

1. If the Exes didn't give or use an Express Pass, Bunnies would be eliminated.
2. If they gave the 2nd to the bunnies but didn't use theirs, it would be close between them and Bingo, but Bingo would get eliminated.
3. If they gave the 2nd EP to the Bunnies but they didn't use it, Bingo would be out.
4. If both teams used the EP, it would have been at the Pit Stop: 6th- Tim & Marie. 7th Bunnies. 8th Oklahoma. 9th- Ice Queens. 10th- Bingo. Bingo would still be eliminated, nothing changes.

Tim & Marie used the express pass to bypass leg 3's detour, would afganimals U-Turn the exes in leg 5 because Marie took off he afganimals's cab in first leg and the exes must complete leg 5's detour
If Brandon & Adam weren't U-Turned in leg 5 (because afganimals U-Turned the Exes),could they survive leg 6 and who would finish last in leg 7 and who would U-Turned as second slot in leg 8
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Platrium on January 01, 2014, 11:20:35 PM
The chances of Afghans u-turning Exes are a little high, but the chances of the Exes receiving it depends on Exes if they finish fast in the statue detour or not.
If Brandam hadn't received a u-turn in leg 5, their survival depends on the roadblock. They could finish the rb & leg in 5th/6th/7th/8th. In case they survive (Ice Girls will most likely finish 8th), I think they'll survive the singing rb (Oklahoma in 7th). Leg 7's a NEL. I doubt Brandam is u-turning anyone, but they'll probably survive (Bunnies still go home in 6th). ER Docs finish 5th without Ice Girls cushion. Leg 10's a NEL, and Brandam can get it. So... I think... the F3 would be: Afghanimals, Jamy, Exes.

Events in leg 5 could turn out differently though. :cmas5
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: toanglobal on January 06, 2014, 08:44:43 AM
If Brandam helped the Exes to find a route marker poles which used to hang dried fish and given an second express pass from the Exes, would the beard have a chance to go to F3
Another question in TAR 23, we have four consecutive legs in Schengen countries where people can freely move without a passport, if one out 8 team completed a leg in Portugal lost a passport (NFL landed Portugal many hours after pother teams), could Phil allow them to check-in at pitstop and continue racing

Post by: Air on January 06, 2014, 08:50:02 AM

If Chester & Ephraim survived Leg 3, Exes go home 9th  :'( and Leg 4 is NEL.
I think that NFL would have been good at the dance detour, Beards eliminated 8th.
They probably sing better than Tim & Danny, so they're safe for Leg 6. Leg 7 is NEL.
They would most likely do better than the Bunnies in UAE Leg 8.
It depends how musical they are. If they are, they survive to Final 3 due to Leg 10 being a NEL and the physical Robot task in Leg 11.
If they are NOT Musical, then they are most likely eliminated 5th.

If the Bunnies were eliminated in Leg 4. Leg 5 is NEL, Tim can't sing and Tim & Danny are out in Leg 6. Leg 7 is NEL with Ice Girls in last. Ice Girls would then be eliminated in Leg 8 due to their navigational errors. Without the Ice Girls, Doctors eliminated in Leg 9.

I believe Rowan & Shane would have gotten further. They could have passed Gdansk easily since the Detour was basically a choice between performing (which if I'm correct, Bingo are performers) and standing like a statue. The pastry tasting Roadblock can be done without a sweat if they follow other teams still searching for the rose filling. Furthermore, I don't think Brandam would have been eliminated, but Leo & Jamal would be instead because of the unaired beef between them. I have a gut feeling that they have the ability to convince a team like Travis & Nicole or Tim & Marie to U-Turn Leo & Jamal in the style of Twinnies vs. Abbie & Ryan.

Rob/Kelley eliminated in Leg 6 unless Caitlin/ Brittany's (possible) SB causes their elimination. If they do survive to Leg 7, James/Abba's passport & Abbie & Ryan's U-Turn would garuntee that they make it to the f4.

It depends whether they got on the first flight or second flight to Krasnoyarsk. Let's say they got on the second flight.
It depends whether Margie & Luke U-turned Amanda & Kris because they were behind or because they were a threat.
If they made it on the first flight or were not U-Turned, they would have been 4th because of Christie/Jodie's error, Mike/Mel's cab driver, and Mark/Michael's penalties. If they were U-Turned, they would be 8th and Amanda/Kris would be 4th and not be in unfinished business.
Final 3 would have been Margie & Luke, Kisha & Jen, and Jaime & Cara
Jaime & Cara MIGHT have won but I don't know how Kisha & Jen would do in Maui.

Well after digging stuff out from the TAR14 Transport Thread Here:

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17791.msg380254.html#msg380254

As well as combined with Live Updates from TAR14,

Brad & Victoria were approximately 9-10 Hours Behind from the arriving train that everyone else was on in Romania, so if they would have survived, they would have departed Leg 4 at around 8 AM while everyone else departed around 11 PM the night before, leaving Brand & Vic missing the flights everyone else were on (I haven't actually researched the flights, but I would assume this would happen)

That leaves Brad & Vic in 8th, Amanda & Kris in 4th or maybe Final 3 which would be Margie & Luke, Jaime & Cara, and Kisha & Jen or Amanda & Kris, and then everyone would have a chance of winning besides Margie & Luke because Jaime & Cara beat them in Hawaii

Monters truck 7th, Rockers 6th (lost passport), Dating Divorcees 5th (U-Turned and flight drama unless substitude teacher also face flight drama), in leg 10 and leg 11 it depends on self-racing skill, if twinnies eliminated in leg 11, chipps would win

Leg 3 is NEL. I don't know how Legs 4 and 5 would go with Andie & Jenna. I think that they would be out in Leg 4, with Connor & Jonathan eliminated in Leg 5. Leg 6 is NEL. LEG 7- penalties kill Michael & Kevin unless Katie & Rachel get worse penalties. Leg 8- Gary & Mallory are too lost. Leg 9 has the U-Turn. I don't know who would be U-Turned. If it was Katie & Rachel, then Nick & Vicki would be 4th, Thomas & Jill would be 3rd, Chad & Stephanie would be 2nd, and Brook & Claire would win. If Chad & Stephanie were U-Turned, then swap Katie & Rachel and Chad & Stephanie. Either way, Brooke & Claire would win.

If the beekman boys beat monster truck and got 1st flight to shanghai, I thought the beekman boys would win first legs and Monster truck went home first (beekman boys found a girl with an abacus very quick while the monters truck would be struggled in eat frog RB task because misread the clue
What would happen for Rob & Sheila, Abbie & Ryan and the beekman boys?
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Platrium on January 10, 2014, 03:15:20 AM
IIRC, Beekman boys found the abacus lady quickly because someone led them there. If they were on the 1st flight, Beekman wouldn't have met the person. So if Beekman were on the 1st flight, they would probably finish the 1st leg in 3rd or 4th instead of 7th. Either way, Abbie & Ryan still get the DYM prize, and Rob & Shiela would still be eliminated.

Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Platrium on January 10, 2014, 11:06:04 PM
TAR22: CaroJen will finish in 5th. YouTube and Derby Moms will most likely be working together still, so it's either of them finishing in 4th. Regardless, Hockey Bros still win.

TAR20: "Teachers" finish 7th, Vanessa & Ralph finish 6th, Mopper finish 5th, Brenchel or Team Fitness finish 4th. Regardless, Davchel still win.

TAR19: Amani & Marcus finish 7th, JJ sibs NEL'd, Laurence & Zac finish 6th, Bill & Cathi finish 5th, Snowboarders finish 4th. JJ makes it to the F3 and have a chance to win.

TAR16: Brent & Caite finish 7th, Steve & Allie finish 6th. Carol & Brandy can't be u-turned now since Brent & Caite went home already. They'll probably u-turn the cowboys. Making the cowboys or detectives finish in 5th. 4th place goes to detectives (if cowboys are 5th) or Dan & Jordan (if detectives finish 5th), but it can also go to Jeff & Jordan.

I can't remember TAR14's leg 5. :umn: Sorry.

So, there isn't any u-turn in Leg 4? I'm kinda forget how's Amanda & Kris position before the U-Turn coming  ???

Let's say they are stil NEL'd. But, I guess Amanda & Kris would step it up  and Christie & Jody would be in 8th, Mark & Michael stucks with the detour in India make them 7th. Mel and Mike can't help with the mess in Thailand, so make them 6th. And......in 1st China, I guess Jamie & Cara kinda fall behind the others so they are 5th. And in 2nd China (with KOR Leg), I guess Tammy and Victor would consider to U-Turn Amanda & Kris instead of Kisha & Jen. That makes one of them being 4th. BUUUUTTTTTTT, Tammy & Victor would still takes it all! #TeamTammy&Victor  :yess: :yess:

Andie & Jenna :luvya: This team was really loveable in TAR17.

I read in Jenna's biography that she has glacier bungee jumped, but sadly, I think the bridge rappel in Narvik would be their downfall. Claire struggled and complained a lot about the task and Andie & Jenna look like they have similar physiques as her so I don't see much hope for them

TAR21: Twin Docs
L1: I predict they'll be unlucky on the 1st leg. But in case they survive, Rob & Shiela in 11th.
L2: Amy & Daniel cab problems (unless twin docs were unluckier)
L3: Cait & Brit cab problems (unless twin docs were unluckier)
L4: Gary & Will's failure to survive makes them finish in 8th (unless twin docs were unluckier).
L5: NEL
L6: Monster Truck in 7th
L7: NEL
L8: Jabba passport problems
L9: Abbie & Ryan u-turned to finish in 5th.
L10: NEL
L11: NaNa wrong direction luck
L12: Beekman still wins.
IMHO, Twin Docs don't have a spot in the F8. :umn:

TAR22: Chips
L1: No EP alliance made, Chips have a chance to win the EPs. Firefighters will most likely be out whether the Chips take a 4-hour penalty or not.
L2: No Twin Doc epic fail here, Pwinnie finishes in 10th.
L3: Keep on Racing...
L4: JJ problems
L5: Cancer withdrawal
L6: NEL
L7: Without Pwinnie cushion, Maxie goes out in this leg.
L8: Chynona in 6th
L9: Night leg NEL
L10: YouTube in 5th
L11: CaroJen in 4th
L12: Depends, winning TAR22 depends on the luck task.

Cancer - absolutely nothing because they used it on a leg that was a TBC.

Timmarie - My guess is they'll U-Turn Brandam anyway because I don't think they were the best of friends (and they wouldn't be last anyway)
Tracole - Nothing because Leo & Jamal were U-Turned and my guess is Leo & Jamal will U-Turn Nicky & Kim anyway because they were behind Ice Queens and if they had U-Turned an MF team they probably wouldn't have much of an effect :lol:

What DYM were introduced in TAR 19 and TAR20
S19 Andy Tommy would win an EP in leg 2, and would be used it to bypass detour leg 8, in leg 11 would Sandy's cab driver tell information about pit stop for Ernie/Cindy cab
S20 Would Art/JJ have an alliance with Rachel/Dave in leg 2 RB task
If DYM were still introduced in TAR 21 but in different format (team would win 2 million dollars, if they won a final leg and have most legs win in an entire race), would Nana, the texans and the chipps target U-Turn dating divorcees?

Nothing would happen for the first (Davechel wouldn't be eliminated because Elliotdrew/Ranessa were WAY too behind to catch up and I think they could have done watermelons)
Second yes because they were still a strong team but that twist is pretty crap and makes it near-impossible to win.

What if the Express Pass rule changed from 'Can only be used before the end of the leg 8' to 'Can be used at any leg before the finale'. How would this affect the team that get it? Since they will use it more carefully.

As I can clearly think is the ER team from recent season. They'll probably use it on Bandung I RB or Japan RB instead of waste it on the UAE detour just because they have to use it. And the other case was Twinnie from S21, they wouldn't use it on Russia RB (so they may struggle a bit but I don't think they'll struggle for about 4 hours to let other team catch up). But they would use it on Spain RB/Detour to avoid the last place and not getting the speedbum in France. Which mean they will have a chance to win million buck.

IIRC, it's not u-turn that did them out. The father team got lost about 2 hours in Denmark. That's enough time for Jeremy & Sandy to survive since the detour wasn't that hard in both side.

Another question (TAR 21 3rd leg in Surabaya, Indonesia)
if the first train from Surabaya to Bangil had a machine failure and forced to stop to repair it, who would be eliminated in leg 3 and could Caitlin/Brittany go far
Hmm....
I think that the Beekmans would be eliminated in Leg 3. Gary/Will would be eliminated in Leg 4. If they cannot overcome the physical tasks in Leg 5, they would be NELed in Leg 5. Rob/Kelley eliminated in Leg 6 unless Caitlin/ Brittany's (possible) SB causes their elimination. If they do survive to Leg 7, James/Abba's passport & Abbie & Ryan's U-Turn would garuntee that they make it to the f4.
Sooooo either 7th or F4 should the 1st train have a failure.
Hi, two underdogs  teams (Monsters truck and substitute teachers) would finish in top 4 of leg 3 if the first train to Surabaya had a machine failure, and NaNa would win a second legs in a row but got leg 3 curse :funny:

Post by: NMC on January 20, 2014, 09:09:29 AM
So I think I've discovered the BIGGEST What If question EVER!  :wohoo:

What If...... Dana had completed the RB in Leg 1 of Season 16??

Ok, so at first this may not seem that major of a What If, but here's what I think could have happened!

Leg 1 - Had Dana chose to do the RB, they most likely would've survived, leading to Jody & Shannon being eliminated first.
With this in mind here's how I believe the rest of the race would play out and how future seasons would be affected by this.

Leg 2 - Louie & Michael eliminated
Leg 3 - Monique & Shawne eliminated
Leg 4 - NEL
Leg 5 - Without Louie & Michael to U-Turn Joe & Heidi, they would have survived, with a Jordan & Jeff elimination.
Leg 6 - As Jordan & Jeff already gone, either Caite & Brent, or Joe Heidi due to Joe's knee injury. I would guess Joe & Heidi survive here, as Brent & Caite missed the Detour, leading to elimination.
Leg 7 - NEL
Leg 8 - Steve & Allie or Joe & Heidi eliminated due to Joe's injury.
Leg 9 - Without Brent & Caite, Carol & Brandy would not be U-Turned, and would survive. Joe & Heidi or Steve & Allie would be eliminated.
Leg 10 - With Louie & Michael already eliminated, Dan & Jordan would be NEL, and then be eliminated Leg 11.

Leg 12 - This would leave a final 3 of Cowboys, Dana & Adrian and Carol & Brandy.
The Cowboys would most likely go on to win.

Therefore would NOT be invited back for Unfinished Business, and again for 24 All Stars, and people would remember them much more fondly with just a one season stint.

Without the Cowboys, Unfinished Business would have had another team return in their place and this could have changed everything about UB.
The same goes for 24 All Stars!

So there we have it, my mad, crazy What If question!!  :funny:

Yea, I think they would have had a fair chance of making the F3, especially with all the mistakes other teams made throughout the race.
I know we can't say for sure, but I think they just had really bad luck, and had the potential to be an extremely strong team.
Guess we'll never know now though!  :'(

I don't really know their performance but let's predict.
Leg 1 - NEL
Leg 2 - With their ULTIMATE yoga skill. :funny: I think they can calmly handle the duck RB well.
Leg 3 - They'll be safe if they choose the easy side of detour.
Leg 4 - Passport Losing sent Zev & Justin home.
Leg 5 - Lance & Keri go home here. I think due to getting lost? But my money is on they can beat Mika & Canaan. So the singer go home.
Leg 6 - Since there's no more Mika nervous breakdown. FT&BE go home.
Leg 7 - HELL detour sent Poker home.
Leg 8 - NEL
Leg 9 - Gary & Matt misunderstanding RB sent them home.
Leg 10 - NEL
Leg 11 - I think Brian & Ericka had a lot problem at the beer detour and even get a penalty off scenes so they'll out here.
Leg 12 - F3 with Eric & Lisa instead Brian & Ericka. But the winner is not change anyway.

And if they WERE in UB.  :funny:
Based on their sucky ability at DETAILED task. I assume they will last again at starting line task, got automatic u turn, and out in Leg2 instead Amanda & Kris.
Leg 3 - MelMike go home due to hypothermia.
Leg 4 - TBC
Leg 5 - Amanda & Kris MAY got u-turned by Jamie & Cara since FT&BE wasn't in this season anymore. But at the end of the day, the cheerleader still go home. That RB was pretty brutal.
Leg 6 - Luke breakdown.
Leg 7 - Ron meltdown.
Leg 8 - NEL
Leg 9 - At this point, it's hard to predict since anything could happen the entire leg. But assume Amanda & Kris had some alliances with Kisha & Jen (from same season) and they shared the answer together. The cowboy still go home.  :funny:
Leg 10 - Since there is no FT&BE, no one mess with the goth team so they probably read the clue clearly. Which mean Zev & Justin goodbye.
Leg 11 - It all come down to who performed the samba RB. It will be fighting for the last spot in F3 between the goth, Kisha & Gen and Amanda & Kris. With anyone get in, will make the finale BETTER THAN FT&BE A LOT!
Leg 12 - Anyone can win since it was so crappy. Based a lot on luck and taxi.

1) Don't sure. But I think JJ will give EP to them anyway.
2) They'll probably do the Car detour. Also, they won't waste their EP here too.
3) Due to JJ idiotic EP, I still think YouTube and Derby mom still be their target. But since they don't quit here. Chuck & Wynona go home.
4) I think hockey will still get it. HockyBro run both Botswana legs flawlessly

I think this incident lead to a lot of change, this is what I think:
Since Chuck & Wynona go home in Vietnam. So YouTube will go out earlier in Swiss. Which lead to Derby mom go home in Scotland. Then Jennifer RB problem will kick the country out in Ireland. So the father & son HAVE a chance to win million buck. But then they won't be called back for All Star.

if Dave & Connor didn't forget heir snorkeling gear back on the beach therefore they didn't waste their precious time to go back, I thought they go to Motu Tapu first and Dave wouldn't be achilles tendon in foot race to pitstop mat
Several question arose
1)Who would be received 2nd EP from Jessica & John (a team from former alliance or newly formed alliance)
2)What detour would cancer survivors choose in leg 3
3)Who would be U-Turned in leg 5
4)If cancer survivors survived leg 5, who would choose fast forward in leg 7 (cancer survivors or hokey bros)

1) Don't sure. But I think JJ will give EP to them anyway.
2) They'll probably do the Car detour. Also, they won't waste their EP here too.
3) Due to JJ idiotic EP, I still think YouTube and Derby mom still be their target. But since they don't quit here. Chuck & Wynona go home.
4) I think hockey will still get it. HockyBro run both Botswana legs flawlessly

I think this incident lead to a lot of change, this is what I think:
Since Chuck & Wynona go home in Vietnam. So YouTube will go out earlier in Swiss. Which lead to Derby mom go home in Scotland. Then Jennifer RB problem will kick the country out in Ireland. So the father & son HAVE a chance to win million buck. But then they won't be called back for All Star.

1.) Due to EP alliance, JJ will still give Team Cancer the EP.
2.) Car detour definitely. And you're right Keepcopz, they wouldn't waste their EP on leg 3. :)
3.) As long as Team Cancer is part of the big u-turn alliance, it is safe to say that they wouldn't be the u-turn target.
4.) Same with Keepcopz's answer.

About JJ and the EP... if Team Cancer didn't have to quit, JJ would have a 50% chance of using the EP. As what I can remember, their reason for not using the EP is they thought that Derby Moms are probably behind them and Team Cancer could quit anytime. So if they used it on leg 4...
Chynona'd be out in 9th (no curse). Team Cancer won't have to quit, the u-turn victim depends on Pwinnie if they will choose YouTube or JJ. Then YouTube or JJ will choose the weakest possible team left (no more Chynona). If I had to choose who the weakest team is, I'd pick the country singers. Anyone who receives the 2nd u-turn is sure to be out in 8th. It's very hard to predict who'll be booted out in 8th if both Team Cancer and Team JJ race the Vietnam leg. :umn:

Here's a few quick ones I thought off,

1 - What if Chuck & Wynona used the sled for the cheese in Leg 8, and didn't receive a penalty?

2 - What if James & Abba didn't get their passports stolen?

3 - What if Amanda & Kris had beat Gary & Mallory at the Starting Line task, giving Gallory the automatic U-Turn instead?

1. Since Mona & Beth were the real U-Turn targets in Leg 10, Chynona in F4. Not sure what would happen in Edinburgh because Wynona will likely have to do the Bog Snorkeling :lol:

2. Not really sure, but most likely Beekmans out in 6th and Abbie & Ryan get Twinnied so they probably make F4, idk if they could be F3 though.

3. TBH, Ron/Christina out in 11th :/

What if Eric & Lisa made it past the starting line? (Lance & Keri = 12th) And what if they showed a great reputation on TV, making them race in TAR18, let's say replacing FT&BE?

I don't really know their performance but let's predict.
Leg 1 - NEL
Leg 2 - With their ULTIMATE yoga skill. :funny: I think they can calmly handle the duck RB well.
Leg 3 - They'll be safe if they choose the easy side of detour.
Leg 4 - Passport Losing sent Zev & Justin home.
Leg 5 - Lance & Keri go home here. I think due to getting lost? But my money is on they can beat Mika & Canaan. So the singer go home.
Leg 6 - Since there's no more Mika nervous breakdown. FT&BE go home.
Leg 7 - HELL detour sent Poker home.
Leg 8 - NEL
Leg 9 - Gary & Matt misunderstanding RB sent them home.
Leg 10 - NEL
Leg 11 - I think Brian & Ericka had a lot problem at the beer detour and even get a penalty off scenes so they'll out here.
Leg 12 - F3 with Eric & Lisa instead Brian & Ericka. But the winner is not change anyway.

And if they WERE in UB.  :funny:
Based on their sucky ability at DETAILED task. I assume they will last again at starting line task, got automatic u turn, and out in Leg2 instead Amanda & Kris.
Leg 3 - MelMike go home due to hypothermia.
Leg 4 - TBC
Leg 5 - Amanda & Kris MAY got u-turned by Jamie & Cara since FT&BE wasn't in this season anymore. But at the end of the day, the cheerleader still go home. That RB was pretty brutal.
Leg 6 - Luke breakdown.
Leg 7 - Ron meltdown.
Leg 8 - NEL
Leg 9 - At this point, it's hard to predict since anything could happen the entire leg. But assume Amanda & Kris had some alliances with Kisha & Jen (from same season) and they shared the answer together. The cowboy still go home.  :funny:
Leg 10 - Since there is no FT&BE, no one mess with the goth team so they probably read the clue clearly. Which mean Zev & Justin goodbye.
Leg 11 - It all come down to who performed the samba RB. It will be fighting for the last spot in F3 between the goth, Kisha & Gen and Amanda & Kris. With anyone get in, will make the finale BETTER THAN FT&BE A LOT!
Leg 12 - Anyone can win since it was so crappy. Based a lot on luck and taxi.

So you are assuming that a team who failed right at the beginning of their race would run flawlessly on two different races and hitting F3 twice? Yes, I see... #BigNoNo

2. NaNa's "can not drive manual" problem would make Jabba be in the F3. They also have a chance of winning.

3. Gallory will EP the detour and here's how things'll go:
11th: Ron & Christina
10th: Mel & Mike
9th: Jaime & Cara (Even if Gallory does not have the EP in leg 5, they'll still survive.)
8th: Margie & Luke

I really don't care for Amanda & Kris, and can't understand the reasoning for their return, so I was over the moon when they were first eliminated. It was a huge shock, and it saved a much better team in Ron & Christina not being out so soon!  :wohoo:

And if this scenario did happen, we would have lost Kent & Vyxsin much earlier, and wouldn't have got the Goths Vs. EVERY OTHER TEAM drama we seen near the end of the race.
So yea, I think Amanda & Kris's eliminated first was the the best outcome for the whole season!

- In TAR11, what if Eric & Danielle screw more at the detour and came up last during the first Poland leg and got Marked for Elimination. Could they survive the next leg? If not, then who will win TAR All Star.

- In TAR12 leg 4 in Bukina Faso, what if Shanna & Jennifer decided to u-turn TK & Rachel instead of Lorena & Jason (IIRC, they were afraid of this right?). Who would survive that leg since TK & Rachel seemed to struck at the RB. Then if TK & Rachel were eliminated in this leg, who will be in F3 and who will win.

- In TAR22 Botswana II, what if Hocky Brother drove over the speed limit and have to go to police station to pay fine. What's gonna happened since Pwinnie will be able to complete the FF and likely to survive this leg and the Hocky Bro may struggle at the detour or get lost which lead them to last place.

- In TAR23 leg 8, what if the Afgananimal and bunnies decide to do the Camel detour first (which is SUPER QUICK than the food). Is the U-turn gonna played out in the different way? And who will end up going home this leg?

TK/Rachel eliminated, roughly the same boot order except exchange TK/Rachel with Lorena/Jason, but then we have the Leg 9 NEL which I believe Nic & Don would have gotten, eliminating them, meaning it would be a F3 of Nate & Jen, Lorena & Jason and Rontina.

- In TAR22 Botswana II, what if Hocky Brother drove over the speed limit and have to go to police station to pay fine. What's gonna happened since Pwinnie will be able to complete the FF and likely to survive this leg and the Hocky Bro may struggle at the detour or get lost which lead them to last place.

-Pwinnie survives
-Maxie either eliminated or not eliminated
-If eliminated
Everything is roughly the same EXCEPT
-Youtube don't get U-Turned, Mona & Beth are eliminated leading to a F4 of YT/Hockey/Pwinnie/Carojen
-I believe YT will get eliminated over Carojen, leaving Hockey/Pwinnie/Carojen F3
-Hockey win

-Hockey eliminated instead of Maxie:
-Chyona/YT still get eliminated
-Carojen probably still get eliminated'
-F3 of Maxie/Pwinnie/Carojen
-Maxie win

- In TAR23 leg 8, what if the Afgananimal and bunnies decide to do the Camel detour first (which is SUPER QUICK than the food). Is the U-turn gonna played out in the different way? And who will end up going home this leg?

Leg 3: Jody & Shannon would definitely survive, since attorney moms had problems.

Leg 9: The team getting eliminated this leg depends on who gets u-turned. F5: Lesbians, Joe & Heidi, Grandma's team, Cowboys, Dan & Jordan. The bros will use the FF. If Lesbians finish detour 1st, they're safe from getting u-turned. So... I think the cowboys will be targeted out in 5th.
Leg 10: Dan & Jordan NEL'd
Leg 11: Dan & Jordan Philiminated in 4th.
Leg 12: F3: Lesbians, Joe & Heidi, Grandma; I think it's either Joe & Heidi or the Lesbians for the win... unless one of them gets a bad cab, then Grandma would've finished 2nd.

I really really REALLY hope THIS happened !!
Leg 8 - I think they'll survive but it would be Tim & Marie that out since they will probably be the last to finish the detour after being u-turned and bunnies speed bum didn't look like spend more than 10 minutes.
Leg 9 - It's depended on which detour they choose, if they choose the bird one (which I think is more likely). They'll survive. But anyway, ice queen will most likely to go home.
Leg 10 - I think they'll done the make up well. :funny: So Afgananimal NELed.
Leg 11 - I think they'll out here since the RB was pretty physical. But I don't know how much time that Leo spend at that RB, if they struggle enough. Then the bunnies may survive because I think they're better when it come to detail part.
Leg 12 - Anyone could win since almost every task is pointless. But I would prefer the bunnies finished the bomb during the first attempt and win the race. <333

If Jody did the RB in Leg 3, I think they'd struggle much more than Monique & Shawne, and would be eliminated.

However if Shannon did it, here's how I think it would play  out.
Leg 3 - Monique & Shawne Eliminated
Leg 4 - NEL
Leg 5 - Not sure if anyone would have been U-Turned, but Jody wouldn't have done the crawling detour, so it depends on how good they are at morse code. Honestly I think they'd be out here.

The rest of the race would go on as it did with Joe & Heidi getting to the F3, and Dan & Jordan NEL in Leg 10, and out in Leg 11.
Cowboys would win because Joes knee would be seriously bad at this stage of the race and would affect him carrying the trunk to the Music Hall.

No they wouldn't survive.

Leo & Jamal would be immune to the U-Turn because they would be in first.
Timmarie would probably U-Turn Ally & Ashley because they were aligned with the other two.
Or U-Turn nobody.

in TAR 20 leg 6 if Army couple's stack of hay were collapsed and fitness team comlete the FF first and won a leg, would Army couple survive leg 6
in the case of elimination of army team
highest performance for 7th team (averaging place 3.00) and lowest finish for team who won EP
several question arose for the remaining leg of the race
1)Who would in 7th leg and 8th leg
2)If Fitness team passed border patrols, would Fitness U-turn border patrols
3)Who would win a first indian leg after Army couple already eliminated
4)If Fitness went to F3, would they finish an final RB task before border patrols and win a race

IN TAR 23 leg 2, if the second bus were broken down and surpassed by the third bus which contains the Bingo, the Bingo would finish leg 2 as 6th place and bunnies girls eliminated
in leg 3 no confrontation between the exes and the bunnies thus the exes would have an earliest flight to Portugal and finish 3th, while Bingo had a second flight to Portugal along with Tim & Danny and Brandon & Adam, NFL eliminated
leg 4 was keep on racing, leg 5 Bingo would be U-turned by afganimals and eliminated saved Brandam, leg 6 Tim & Danny eliminated because Tim can't sing, leg 7 and 8 Ice girls went out unless other team have an flight drama
Can you predict further?

Yes, Andrew and Elliot and Vanessa & Ralph were still way behind at this point as it was dusk and Strung out should only take an hour or so, unless they completely mess up which I doubt, so nothing changes in the end, twins are still eliminated.

Really lucky? How were they lucky on that leg? They dominated it. And it's not like they sucked the rest of the legs they were in, they got 3rd in the 2nd Chile leg and 5th in Portugal, yes they got 10th in the first leg but I feel like if they weren't U-Turned they would be 4th and have a very good chance at F3.

I assume that they are asking "What is Kami and Karli or Linda and Karen shaved their heads in the India FF in Leg 9."
If Kami & Karli FFed:
They would win Leg 9, which might give them an advantage in finding flights to Auckland. If they were successful, Chip & Kim would be eliminated Leg 10, and Kami and Karli would be eliminated in Leg 12. Colin and Christie would win. If Kami and Karli DID'NT get a good flight, nothing changes.
If the Bowling Moms win the FF, they win Leg 9, but otherwise, no change.

Actually they still can, Luke from season 14 had confirmed somewhere in this board that after they use blind u-turn in Russia, if they reach the u-turn mat in China III first, they are allowed to use it.

But in this case, I don't think anything will change since the Afganimal choose the bad detour which cost them a lot of time. They will still end up being at the U-turn after Tim & Marie.

Season 23's finally over, and I can finally post my list of TAR23 What ifs: :xmas146
Quote what you want to answer and don't take all of these what ifs at the same time. :cmas24
1.) What if Brandam made it to the 1st flight on the 1st leg?
2.) What if the ER Docs were on the 2nd flight on the 1st leg?
3.) What if ER Docs didn't get a penalty on the 1st leg? Would they use their EP on one of the 1st 4 legs except the 1st leg? Assuming they give the 2nd EP to Jamy, which task would make Jamy use their EP?
4.) What if Tim & Marie made it to the 1st bus on leg 2?
5.) What if Bingo stayed with the pack? How far would they have gone?
6.) What if the Bunnies didn't make the smart move at the airport? (This would probably have them receive the 2nd EP from Tim & Marie.) Speaking of which, which task would the Bunnies use their EP if Tim & Marie give it to them on leg 4/5?
7.) What if ChesEph didn't have any bad flights in leg 3? How far could they have gone?
8.) What if ChesEph made it to the same flight with Tim & Marie?
9.) What if Tim & Marie used the EP on the detour in leg 3?
10.) What if Brandam didn't switch detours and didn't get u-turned? How far could they have gone?
11.) What if Jamy was able to complete the FF?
12.) What if the Bunnies made it to the same boat with the Exes and the Ice girls on leg 7?
13.) What if Jamy knew Tim & Marie were behind and u-turned them?
14.) What if leg 8's w-turn was in leg 9 instead?
15.) What if leg 9 was a NEL and leg 10 was not?
16.) What if Jamy caught up to the 1st train on leg 9?
17.) What if Tim & Marie's cab didn't break down and they made it to the 1st train on leg 9?
18.) What if both the Exes and Jamy make it to the 1st train on leg 9?
19.) What if the Ice girls brought the sugar canes with them on their 1st trip from the market?
20.) What if Jamy didn't help the ER Docs? Will the Ice girls catch up to them and have them eliminated instead? If yes, how far could they have gone?
21.) What if the Afghanimals got in to the F3 instead of the ER Docs?
5.)Nicky & Kim eliminated in Chile, after that NFL have an flight drama in leg 3, leg 4 and 5 i think the bingo will have a difficult legs because of their size and may get U-turned from afganimals save brandam, brandam can go to F4 because of music skill and Ice girls navigation problems in Abu Dhabi
10.)similiar to 5.) and Brandam may U-turn the Exes in leg 8

TAR 22 what ifs
1)if the firefighters didn't accept the advice to quit the roadblock released by Katie and continue to complete clue in mini sandcastles
2)If the twin doctors choose to complete take the trunk first
3)DYM in leg 1 and the express pass for winner of leg 2 who would be eliminated in Bali and who would be U-Turned in Vietnam
4)If Pam/Winnie changed the donkey coprs rather than switched their detour who would be eliminated in Botswana 2
1.) Country girls out in 11th, Twin Docs in 10th, JJ in 9th, Cancer in 8th, Firefighters probably in 7th (saving Pwinnie), Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, Pwinnie or Roller Derby Moms in 4th, Hockey Bros will still be the winners.
2.) Pwinnie in 10th :cmas4 , JJ in 9th, Cancer in 8th, Maxie probably in 7th :cmas4 , Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, CaroJen in 4th, Hockey Bros will still be the winners.
3.) JJ get DYM, no EP alliance will be made at the Tahiti airport. JJ will still be eliminated in Bali since they will have a bad leg there without the EP. Hockey Bros win EP, they'll probably use it on the Bali leg's detour. Since the u-turn alliance was CaroJen's idea, Youtube will still get the u-turn.
4.) I doubt that teams are allowed to change donkeys (besides switching detours twice), but if they survived Botswana 2, goodbye Maxie :cmas4 . Chynona in 6th, Youtube in 5th, Pwinnie or Roller Derby Moms in 4th, Hockey Bros still win.
2.)I think in this case the twins doctors 7th (leg 7 have the physical tasks with a water), in this case there was only a swap placement between Asian girls and twin doctors, nothing changed!

Oh, wow! Actually I think there is: Would Youtube receive a U-turn? They arrived at the blind W-turn in 2nd. If Youtube's not receiving a U-turn, who would instead?

Post by: toanglobal on March 11, 2014, 10:26:04 PM
if in TAR 22 the Double U-turn were placed in leg 7 rather than leg 10, I think Roller Moms would U-turn country singers and subsequently the Country singers U-Turn youtube
two possible cases can occur
if You tube survived leg 7 and Asian girls eliminated, nothing would change
if Asian girls survived, what happen later?

If Pam & Winnie replaced the country singers, they'd probably still be in the race so far.

LEG 1: Unless they are lost finding a bridal shop and overthink about the Canton Tower bubbles, they'll survive the premiere.
LEG 2: Mark & Mallory's troubles will cause them to at least stay ahead of Team Kentucky.
LEG 3: Joey & Meghan lost their taxi while Brendon & Rachel lost their raft. I'd suspect they can survive since Winnie said she is a big outdoors person.

3) S23 - What if the ticket agent hadn't messed up Chester & Ephraim's tickets on Leg 3?
Potential Outcome - They would have been on one of the first flights to Portugal, resulting in Tim & Marie being last and Eliminated, and this would have DEFINITELY changed the entire Season. We wouldn't have had Tim & Marie "Antics", they would have been Eliminated with both Express Passes. This is probably one of the BIGGEST "What Ifs" ever as it would have changed everything about Season 23!
[/quote]How many status would have changed if the army couple were lost FF in azerbaijan leg of TAR 20 to fitnesses
I counted at least twelve
1)The record for most leg win season remained at 7
2)We wouldn't see a confrontation between Army couple and border patrols about U-turning Brenchel
3)We wouldn't see an army couple complete construction camp task in leg 7
4)We wouldn't see a racer who completes bollywood dance in first attempt
5)We wouldn't see a team who missed a train in Japan but still win this leg
6)We wouldn't see a team who failed to complete any important tasks in an elimination leg but survived can win a race
7)Ernie & Cindy is the only team so far can win a race after won an EP
8)Fitness can win a race (first 10th place leg 1 to do so)
9)Border patrol can win a race (breaks leg 3 course)
10)Rachel & Brendon can win a race (first U-Turned team)
11)without army couple in leg 10 Vanessa may not be tripped and fell and therefore can win a leg
12)TAR 20 was less boring with more team win a leg

Days ago in one thread (I forgot which), I saw a post saying that: When a team is eliminated with an EP, the team who won the leg the EP team got eliminated on will receive the EP.

Then I thought of this for TAR22:
JJ gets eliminated with EP, D&C takes it.
D&C withdrew from the race, Pwinnie takes it.
Pwinnie will most likely use the EP on the detour in Botswana2, saving them from elimination.

On how far Pwinnie will go... I remember that this topic was already discussed somewhere along this thread.

5th or 4th place. Either they get revenge U-turned by YouTube or they would suck at self-navigation.

Here's a what-if? What if Bopper & Mark raced? Do you think they will still be eliminated?
Title: Re: The Amazing Race: What If
Post by: Platrium on March 13, 2014, 09:49:10 AM
If Bopper & Mark raced as a team, there will be a smaller chance that they will be eliminated in 10th, because they are compatible and they would most likely not argue about leaving a bag in case they do. They'll go back and get it right away, but I think they wouldn't leave the bag.

So it depends if they struggle at the detour or not. There's also a chance that they'd be with the first 7 teams at the pit stop, which will leave Meghan regretting on helping John. :lol:

I just thought of this:
Gary & Mallory should've just raced for Bopper & Mark. In other words, TAR should've replaced the whole team. In case Gary & Mallory won, they should just give the money to Bopper & Mark. I'm not sure with this if this will work though. :duno:

D&C won't give it, Pwinnie will "take" or win it. It would never happen I guess, since there's no such rule about that with the EP.

11th- Brandam

7th- Oklahoma
6th- Bunnies? / Hoskote & Naina?
5th- Ice Girls? / Hoskote & Naina?
4th- Afghanimals? / Hoskote & Naina?
F3: Same.

Regardless of when the Exes will give them the EP, I don't think they'll make it s far as the F3.
The disappointing part is that TAR23's premiere was :barf (and so is TAR24's). So we didn't get to see much about Hoskote & Naina and their potential.

What if Ryan and Abbie somehow survive The Netherlands?
i.e. they make their first intended flight (which I believe would have landed them ahead of the twins) or the Chippendales didn't go through with the u-turn (and Ryan and Abbie u-turn and beat Josh and Brent), etc.

My intrigue in this scenario is due to the fact that Ryan studied in Spain (I think this was mentioned in his bio) and at the start of leg 9 Abbie corrects Ryan in thinking that the Dutch flag is France IN FRENCH. The next two countries visited on this race were Spain and France. Assuming Ryan has at least a rudimentary knowledge of Spanish and Abbie of French would this be enough to propel them to the final, their $2 million and one of the greatest comebacks in race history?

What do you think..?
because of RB rule Abbie must complete two roadblock tasks in leg 10 and leg 11, tennis rb task in leg 10 is similiar table tennis task in leg 1 and find an mushroom in leg 11 is not a difficult task for Abbie
Abbie & Ryan would win final leg if Ryan completed the bungee jump rb task

Not far. Answers for both of them.

We know from post-race interviews that Margie & Luke did not complete the Detour or Roadblock of Leg 5 because it was too late for them to perform any of the tasks.

But what if one of the other teams had lost their passport right before the Pit Stop? (Say some jerk robbed them) As seen with James & Abba, this would put this team in last place instead of Margie & Luke. But what about all the tasks they didn't do?

What would happen on this and the next leg?

I'm guessing that the team that lost their passports (let's say team XY) would be rejected at the pit stop and start looking for their passports. Margie & Luke (having not done any of the tasks), would probably be dealt with penalties (because they can't do any of the tasks due to Hours of Operation and waiting for them to start the next day would be more unhelpful).

Margie & Luke would be in 7th place (albeit hours and hours behind), and team XY would probably be called back to the pit stop, check in last and be eliminated. Margie & Luke would start the next leg (probably as the other teams were already heading to the pit stop), and check in last again, but be saved by the non-elimination. Then they'll head off to Rome and god knows what happened next.

So you're thinking penalties for Margie & Luke? But remember that in S23, half the teams could not perform the zipline in Santiago due to HoO, but I don't believe they got penalties.

Had a team lost their passport I think Margie & Luke would of been able to do the tasks as it was still daylight when they got to the Detour and in TARAus1 Trendy Connections was open for the night time Roadblock so they might of been able to do them had another team lost their passport.

They interviewed that they could not do the tasks because of "Logistics"

But what if one of the other teams had lost their passport right before the Pit Stop? (Say some jerk robbed them) As seen with James & Abba, this would put this team in last place instead of Margie & Luke. But what about all the tasks they didn't do?

I am pretty sure all the other teams had already checked in by the time Margie & Luke arrived at the detour. So this was never an issue.

Ah, darn it for spoilers that technically don't break the rules :C  (I don't watch the 'next time' previews)

So you're thinking penalties for Margie & Luke? But remember that in S23, half the teams could not perform the zipline in Santiago due to HoO, but I don't believe they got penalties.

I was thinking it's going to be similar to Josh & Brent's penalty at the Synchronize Detour in Russia. They got 4 hours for not being able to finish the Detour, and maybe it's going to be the same if Margie & Luke can't even start due to HoO. And maybe a 3 hour penalty for a Roadblock.

It's a possibility, perhaps the editing made things look different. ???
