Someone should open up a public Google Docs and list out all the teams, then we can work together to fill in their elimination reasons.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

And this weekend we got the answer to a question which I think has been asked here many times. Can you use the express pass on a fast forward? And the answer from Becca & Floyd is no. They asked and were told that they were not allowed to use the express pass on the fast forward task.

PS In their case it was an academic question. They didn't consider using the express pass to skip the helicopter, and why should they. It seemed to be a awesome task and they thought they were guaranteed a first place anyway.

Really weird how that seemed to have not been well thought out to insure a first place finish.

Just found out that CBS just released a lot of new merchandise with the new TAR logo on it. Idk what this could mean (or which thread to put it on), but thought it might be interesting to know.

What if, for a future season (Not All Stars or Returnees-themed season) just a regular season where maybe the Top 22 teams are voted into the Top 11 teams just like platform of Survivor Cambodia a few seasons ago. What do you guys think? People get to see their audition videos and allow them to vote which team should race.

I'm not too sure but my gut tells me, based on the vibe of the scene around them, it was Panama.
"But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice (oh)"

We have an article for the "Switchback" on our wiki. However, it looks like the Race has dropped the Switchback name even though they're still doing Switchback-y tasks. I didn't add them to the list on the page, but I should go and do that now.

After the last "official" one in Season 25, I know there was one in Zimbabwe (27), and now two in Greece and Vietnam (29). Did I forget any?

Would the waterslide in the UAE in TAR 28 count? Racers were definitely mentioning Mika melting down and I think the show might have as well.

Yes. You are right, thank you. I knew I was forgetting one.

Even without the Elimination Station, do eliminated teams from TAR 18 onwards still do things like that are seen in Elimination Station, like going outdoors, play tennis, or whatever?

Same place, but not the same task. Is that considered a Switchback? ???

Do 4th-6th place eliminated teams still are being used as decoys or what?

Haven't had decoys in a while. They DEF should have used them this time!

Both Becca and Floyd and Matt and Red were sent directly to Chicago...no sequester (from B/F Podcast)

Hi - just now after watching the final episode I wonder two things, and I hope some of you experts can answer them ;)

1.) Why was the winning team allowed to "Gate Check" their bags? Why is it so "secret"? What does is mean exactly, because why wouldn't all the teams do that on the final leg?

2.) How did they keep that Winning Team secret? I searched the spoiler threads after seeing it, and you only got them up to the check in to the stadium. Then they take a, I suppose pre-fixed taxi to a "secret" location and check in. Is the taxi so secret? I mean you had a drone up there! (I really researched before asking xD)
But especially this time. The location wasn't secret. I saw all the boats and spectators in the background, someone must have seen something? There were no decoy teams (this time? I read somewhere here, but - sidequestion - how do they use decoy teams?) so how do they keep that from the internet?

Thanks for your time and answers im advance =)
