As to making a mistake choosing a team, I also think the choosing team would be stuck with their choice, no matter once.

Mechanically until a couple seasons ago, the Yield/U-Turn used sticker-backed photographs of the teams that had to be torn off and pasted onto the Yield/U-Turn board, and each team had its own photo in their TAR Fanny Pack that was to be attached in the same way. So I agree that a team would be stuck with an erroneous choice.

Another question - does anybody know how long a Yield lasted before teams could continue on? Or did it vary for each Yield?
Each yield varied. Colin & Christie's yield (the very first time it was used) was roughly 40-45 minutes.

Is there any evidence? I remembered its mostly 15 minutes. They started the jeepney task just when the other three teams were done. Which fixing the jeepney would take about 15 mins plus?

I have seen a variety of answers above, so I will give you a different one. I think YIELDs typically ran about 30 minutes for the sand to run out. Maybe some were as low as 15 minutes or as high as 40 minutes, but most appeared to me to be 30 minutes.

How much does the typical season cost to produce?

Yes, Yield was 15 minutes. It was enough for Weavers to finish their Macdonalds. :lol3:

They must be fast eaters then.

It's an outdated concept. The 12-hour Pit Stop was phased out many many seasons ago.

Almost all Pit Stops are more than 12 hours now. The only exceptions are the finale legs, which are often shorter than 12 hours.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

In other words, it is variable for what production needs.

All right, this one may be a stumper...

Before Season 16, what was the purpose of the numbered tags on the team's backpacks? Do the specific numbers assigned to each team correspond to something?

Also, why did they replace the tags with plain black ones in Season 16?

These are total guesses, but here goes:

The numbered tags were for production to keep track of the teams quicker without having to use their names? ???

They replaced them because the colored ones were too obvious for spoilers? ??? (That one might be true.)

That was kind of my thought too, I just wanted some second or third opinions.

Are there any other teams not listed below who have been originally casted or auditioned for a season, but then were replaced by another team, then being casted on another season?

I know for sure Jill (John Vito & Jill) planned to be on the first season with her brother ??? , but then the NYC tragedy happened... Tian & Jaree were originally planned to be on season 3, but the producers lost their paperwork placing them in season 4... and Lucy & Emilia originally planned to be on TARaus1, but their mother fell I'll and were furthermore replaced by Alana & Mel bumping them to season 2. The missing family team from season 8 does not count.

Did I miss any other team? ???

I believe Luke, Margie, and two other family members were in the process of being on TAR 8. I'm not sure if they were supposed to be on it.

Uchenna & Joyce were cut at the last minute for TAR6, even to the point that they were sequestered at the SL.

Glad they were cut from TAR6 and bumped up to the seventh season. They would have had to deal with swimming before checking in... and all the painful dating and engaged teams that sixth installment.

They still were sent to an "elimination station", but were not shown in TAR extras unlike all-stars through season 17. Can someone expand by explaining the locations of the stations? Would really appreciate it. :)
