I think Mikey from season 26 made an account because on the bottom of my screen I see latest member: MikeyZEROE. I think he goes by this on twitter.

nothing changed we are just a more active cast. it's always better to ask for forgiveness than permission. Plus non of us will break the rules they worry about. we will only talk about what has aired already and no spoilers.

This seasons cast is pretty close we talk/text/facebook/snapchat a lot with each other.
We all love the show and want to see it for years to come. So we all want to stay active online and on social media.
As a superfan I really feel that season 27 will quickly become a top 5 season. The route is awesome!, The cast is diverse, no gimmicks, and a great nostalgia feel for fans who have been watching for over 10 years.

A now appropriate question since episode 1 has aired; if you're permitted to answer and you team performed the puzzle detour.....how long did it take your team to complete that puzzle?


And in addition to the new twist on the Express Pass are there any other rule changes this season that were evident in episode one?

While things were being set up in Venice at the Start, BVM asked Rob and Brennan who did the gorge swing. Rob was quick to say not us! We are the idjits who took a FF on the first leg.   :funny:

Okay, let's set some guidelines please. 

Reminder to all the RFFers!! No racer posting here is to be asked for any SPOILER info. That includes via PM's.
We are so delighted and proud to have the racers here, but that means playing fair and being careful to not put any of them at any contractual risk at all.   :ty3:

IF they want and are able to comment on the previous legs, that is fine. But we will all understand if they just use this guy too!!
 :-X

That will mean no more about that for now. Okay??




And I know I can trust all our members to be super friendly and polite to our racer friends!


 or face the wrath of the peach...

Thanks.

1. the Cab ride to the FF was 30 mins away and thats how we spent our money!
2. I didn't want to call them meatheads because that is negative so i tried to think of a word that got my point across without offending Josh and Tanner because I didn't know their names yet ....Beefcake is an old school compliment for guys with big muscles. I have used it since the wrestler Brutis the barber Beefcake..lol

I don't think many teams completed the puzzle in the first place. If I remember correctly, it was only us, ChacAttack, Cheerleaders, and TMZ. I finished the puzzle in about 6 minutes. I'm not sure how long it took the other teams.

I have a question for JustinandDiana...

When you won the "prize" of the early flight, as fans, did you all consider what a double edged sword that was? WE know that you never want to be alone...if that flight had been more delayed you could have been eliminated because of that.  :ascared

Just wondered if refusing it was an option....

Not one second did we ever think " Maybe we should lose this first task" We wanted to be leaders not followers our plan going in was to play to win not play just to survive.  But as a superfan I understood the risk/reward

Hey justin, do you think the edit you are getting now is justified? I think it's biased and you guys are negatively portrayed and i didn't like that.

there is a heavy edit to make it look one way. I didn't have a problem with Josh and Tanner. of course i looked at them like a threat. I had no idea they didn't like me that much. there have been some funny edits that make things look like i'm talking about them when i wasn't. and they have tossed in a few laughs in places i wasn't laughing but i'm not upset about it. As a fan it's really interesting and makes for some good drama and competition.  and I'm cool with Josh and Tanner they are actually really good dudes

Editing is ...editing. Words said at different times with different meanings have sometimes been inserted in totally unrelated situations.

Clearly CBS wants to make some drama, whether it really existed or not. I'd get ready for more of the same...sigh.

Hi JustinandDiana, congrats on winning Leg 2 and a trip to Morocco! I have two questions about the Buenos Aires leg.
1. During the cartoneros Detour option, about how much time did it take you two to collect and bag up 100 kg of cardboard?
2. After checking in with Phil in Rio and before Leg 2 started, did you meet and greet all-or-most of the teams, or was it just the ones shown lounging along the beach (Kelsey & Joey and one other team)? Or were all the teams there to explore and chat? Justin said you two didn't have the chance to get to know everybody at the airport, but I heard that teams were sequestered and prohibited from talking to one another after going to the Pit Stop accommodations.

Thank You!
1. It took about 20-30
2. No those were the only teams we got to meet. there may have been one or two more teams there doing interviews....teams are sequestered after pitstop check ins not during route markers while waiting at airports and what not. You know like when we were getting the info from denise and james earl and they gave it to Tanner and Josh.

This has been going on since season one, so it isn't new. Some seasons, we had racers report whole sentences were spliced together, and used. It is in the contracts the racers sign that they give permission for that sort of editing; e enough the infamous Tunis airport confrontation between Team Guido and the others teams in season one was mostly editing, and not the reality.
And don't forget the production staff that does the pit stop interviews can word their questions in such a way to get certain response from the teams. That's also a common editing device.
