Let's just hope it's not another SL elimination :lol:

I suspect we'll have more raw data or an explanation from Phil or CBS before we get to the 17th of February. And I suspect we'll have a confirmed cast announcement before we are in February.

Maybe the twist is that there are NO express passes. That would be a twist I would love. More fast forwards, no express pass!
Back to basics! :hoot:

Maybe the new twist is that you can win some sort of immunity from all U-Turns. Of course, it doesn't guarantee that you can't be eliminated.

It could be also an extra of something, like an extra U-Turn to use.

I actually don't mind the idea of having a small penalty for being last to complete the first task at the starting line, but what we had in the last few seasons (instant elimination, Hazard, automatic U-Turn) do seem somewhat harsh. Maybe that team should be penalized 10% of the 1st leg's money or something.

After season 15 i think that they have learnt something, season 18 leg 1 non elimination and season 19 the samething. But then again season 19 had the awful double elimination on leg 2.

I think that they can win the Express Pass at the startline, and the Salvage Pass at the end.

I can already answer this one!    :hoot:

We have the Express Pass as an accepted  and appreciated and sought after feature of TAR.  So that's not going away.     :wise   

At the end of the first leg, what would be even better than winning one?   ???

Well?  Winning two Express Passes of course!   :beer2:

But that may be just too simple.  And I have my reasons.  Let there be two EPs with the understanding that the second one has to be shared with another Team.  Simple!  Powerful!  Adds drama too.  TPTB probably got it from  one of mutlitude of  fantasy games  going on allover.  Can somebody check?  ;)  :popcorn:



Wonder how long they have to share? And what happens to the second Express Pass if that tem should be eliminated before sharing?

This will be FUN to see!

Are we sure of that? Cause i'm thinking about the first team to arrive on the first leg gets the chance to choose between double their money or the express pass. This determines the prize of the 2nd team to arrive on the first leg , or the prize for Leg2.

Phil has said in interviews that there is no Double Your Money twist for TAR22.

That makes sense in terms of the destinations for TAR 22. Teams likely traveled through Nairobi to or from Johannesburg for the Botswana legs, They had a leg in Hanoi. London Heathrow would have been a connecting point for the UK legs and going to Washington DC.

What doesn't make sense is why he would have been to those locations if they were the first or second team eliminated. Maybe Heathrow makes sense, if he was traveling from where they were sequestered to Washington DC.

Can't disclose the evidence so this should be considered speculation - but it looks like they may have gone on a safari when they were in Edinburgh.

A Surfing Safari...

Probably one of these 3 locations - all about 1 hour away from Edinburgh airport:
Belhaven Bay (Dunbar)
Pease Bay
Coldingham Bay

Yes - there is winter surfing in Scotland

Lets go surfin now, Everybodys learning how, Come on and safari with me!
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere
