In light of the successful U-turn of Seth and Olive c/o Tara and Joey, when are the other times of successful U-turns of the race? Meaning a strong team eliminated early because of a U-turn or a strong team unexpectedly eliminated because of a U-turn.

Chance favors prepared minds.

If Team A and B use an electronic u-turn on an early leg, can Team A and B use a courstery-of u-turn on a later leg?

Do you count the u-turn killing
Abbie & Ryan?
Brodie & Kurt?

maybe Kisha & Jen?

I would consider

Brandon & Adam (S.23) they were U-Turned by Leo & Jamal in Poland. Brandon & Adam finished 1st on the previous leg (Norway).

Joe & Heidi (S.16) were finishing in the front pack and they were U-Turned by Louie & Michael

Arguably the very first U-Turn (Lorena & Jason were U-Turned despite being one of the first to finish almost every task that didn't have anything to do with camels).

Definitely Amanda & Kris (in TAR 14) who finished 5-3-2-8.

There are a lot of cases of successful U-turns. In fact, Brook & Claire from TAR17 were the 1st ever team to survive a U-turn (but that's only because the W-turn was introduced right then and there). Bill & Cathi would've been the very 1st to survive a U-turn, although the subjective term of successful applies to Bill & Cathi, as Ernie & Cindy's reason of U-turning Bill & Cathi is for the latter not to beat the former in a race for 1st.
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!
Slowly fading now that TAR30 filming is over.

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.

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.

Joey mentioned in an interview they did the intro shots in Panama after the first leg.

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?
Whatever.
