I'd say Detour for Todd & Elizabeth. Had they went for the pool Detour first, they're very likely to survive that leg since the Fitness Moms spend massive amount of time finding that RB location.

(This reminded me how Elizabeth intentionally block other team members from going upstairs at the counting RB. So <33 :lol:)

Elizabeth injured her arm falling out of the boat IIRC?  This may not have been the sole reason for their elimination, but it would've resulted wasted time when the medic checked on her, and patched her up.

From Scott & Blair's contestants thread:
If they were eliminated this leg, their 9th place curse would've been due to the unfair leg design of sending all the teams up to Chamonix just for the pit stop.
Also the 9th place curse are for same-sex teams so why them?
That was never mentioned. ??? I'll look into that in a moment. :lol:

Interestingly, only Seasons 5, 10, 14, and 22 had victims of the 9th place curse which are M/F teams.

Brittany & Jessica were left behind by the train within seconds. It was right in front of them iirc. ???
Had they gotten on it, they would not have missed a 9-way footrace to the pit stop, which can likely mean they would've survived.

The editing only made them look like they missed it by seconds. The real role of the curse was them missing the location of their original detour choice. Had they not missed it, they could've been working with the others at the roadblock, even beating Scott & Blair to it.

Not all teams who end up in 9th have potential. They way they were eliminated is what usually matters. ;)

From what I've heard/seen/read, the 9th place curse eliminates a team in 9th place even though they could have gone a really long way otherwise. Usually M/M teams, but not always.
