I have asked this previously in this thread. PLEASE no wishlist MAPS anymore. It slows the pages way down and are not necessary. Save it for the real thing.

So NO MORE, okay? THanks!

After 22 seasons and only two all female teams winning? There's room for more.

Here's hoping that this season all female teams will have:

Caroline and Jennifer's fun loving spirit
Charla and Mirna's amazing luck and skills in Allstars
Dustin and Kandice's competitiveness
Nat and Kat's brains
Brooke and Claire's strength and witty punchlines
A lottle of Cara and Jaime's sassy snappy attitude for the hilarity and drama

<3333333333333 Totally not asking for too much. :lol3:

Here is my fantasy race beginning:

The race begins somewhere in New York City.  The first clue advises the racers of the three flights that may be taken, and even when the flights are scheduled to land.  The catch is that each of the flights takes off from a different airport: Newark, LaGuardia and JFK.

The logistics of such a beginning likelly ensure that it will forever remain a fantasy.
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

A Roadblock U-Turn wouldn't be too much to ask, no?

Either that or the Yield to return - I don't know, it always seemed more devastating than a U-Turn, but then again, it all depends on what Detour the U-Turn appears

I know! I don't understand why there are limits to a Roadblock U-Turn type thing being implemented, especially if it was disgusting tasks (which would be hilarious to watch :lol:) (which is another wishlist of mine, more gross-out tasks like eating disgusting things etc)

Maybe they don't make it to balance the Roadblock count in the end? ;)

Maybe have it so that when they get U-Turned then it doesn't count towards the overall Roadblock Count? :duno:

Or maybe they're planning to make it but they don't know what's the proper term of it, because Roadblock U-Turn is too mainstream. :lol:

Regarding the Roadblock U Turn, the other partner should do it because then the person who originally did it already knows how to do it, or the answer. The only situation where it seems like they would not know is one of those search for... roadblocks

That's kinda the point of a Roadblock U-Turn...

  • Kym/Alli for the win!
There's a bit of a "flaw" though. While it has to be a different partner doing the Roadblock Uturn, he/she MIGHT know how to do this one from observing his/her partner who initially did the RB.

 Ex. Jaime did the Dinosaur RB in s18 where she had the hips wrong. Cara said in an interview that she knew Jaime had the hips wrong but couldn't help her. So with that case, it may seem "unchallenging" now that Cara already knows how to do it correctly and kinda ruins the point of the Uturn. In my opinion, what makes the Uturn difficult is that the teams have no idea how the other Detour is like.

It's a tiny bit of flaw that could be corrected though. So let's still keep our hopes up?  :keeta:
Dustin/Kandice, Jaime/Cara and Pam/Winnie = goddesses!

Well theoretically then it would work on tasks either where you have to go somewhere else, do a task, and come back, or tasks that just rely on doing something, like the Indian Poo task, Malaysian newspapers, and the like.
