Liiiiike lbr the Salvage Pass as TARAus implemented it (1 hour lead or spare a team from elimination) wpuld never get implemented since everyone would choose the head start lol.

This ONLY works on legs that do not leave the country, and this has not happened yet. If Ross & Tarryn had chosen a 1-hour lead, it would have been meaningless because of the flight from Manila to New Delhi. Likewise, Daniel & Ryan DID take the 1-hour lead, and it was meaningless because of the flight from Moscow to Lisbon.

Compare this to the TAR Philippines version, where the team can choose to enter a bunching point (ie, hours of operation) one hour before all other teams.

My point is less "the benefit means little in many cases" and more "no one would voluntarily keep another team". If it's a strong team then of course they aren't going to spare them (Jon & Murray) and if it's a weak team then they have to think that that eats up an NEL (Lucy & Emilia)

If it was "save the last place team AND get a benefit" then I'd be interested (like use the Salvage Pass and it becomes an Express Pass or something).
