I'm fine with it as long as Redmond/Matt get it every time.

No, just that since this was a blind U-turn it did not count. That is they can still use one non-blind U-turn. The easiest way to think about it is that they only have one courtesy-of photo so they can only use that once.

I think that the Canadian U-turn boxes had a small box on the front where teams could find courtesy-of photos.

I also think there was an old version where one team had lost their photo so they could not use the U-turn.

Well, teams have not been required to carry their own courtesy-of photos anymore since season 19
In season 19 - 22, they use electronic tablet for u-turn
In season 23 - 28, the photos are provided right at the u-turn

But in season 22, Joey and Maghan did eligible to use the u-turn in leg 10 despite having used a blind one in leg 5

I remember Luke saying that even if Margie & Luke used the Blind U-turn during Leg 4 in TAR14, they could still use the one in Leg 10. If I were TAR though, I'd change the rules, so I'm not sure how updated we are with the U-turn rules since it has not been mentioned by teams who used the Blind U-turn whether they can or can not use the U-turn again. ???

I'm sad that fans don't get the chance to ask racers questions for an exit interview thru Facebook. :(

One of my main gripes so far is the lack of suspenseful endings.  It's not really due to lazy editing, but instead due to the racers themselves.

Leg 1: Kevin & Jenn and Liz & Michael getting so lost that the only hint of suspense is watching Kevin & Jenn waiting out a penalty. Boring!
Leg 2: Jessie & Francesca being inexplicably so far behind (could you say Shamir's frustration at the agency was justified?)
Leg 3: The closest race to the finish we've had so far.  But it was kind of obvious that the dispute with Seth & Olive's currency didn't take less than a minute.
Leg 4: Shamir & Sara being the only team not on the ferry with the other teams.  Almost like the Models from last season.
Leg 5: I'll admit this was pretty close, considering we had 4 teams neck-and-neck at the Detour before the Pit Stop.  But you just knew that Liz & Michael weren't gonna make it after they showed teams climbing the steps already...

It's a big shame because there's a lot of character in this cast.  They're so stressed out from the stranger aspect that I would LOVE to see them get caught in some footraces!

I cannot wait to see that part where Ashton holds Vanck's hand!  As much as I like the drama, I really hope their elimination isn't nasty and they're mature about it..

I think the post race interviews explained that the currency was a BIG deal that took some time to resolve.

Man I am so in love with Vanck & Ashton :hoot:
The constant bashing of Ashton on Vanck, while Vanck is just doing his cool (Mathematically  :funny:) is like a Hayley & Blair 2.0
Though unlike Hayley, the decision made by Ashton isn't always right  :funny:

Hope they go far like Hayley & Blair did  :word:

Who's writing the spiels? They need to stop with the overly-simplistic one-line descriptions of 'Previously on'!

(example)
"Previously on the Amazing Race..."
"Teams flew to China!"
"Yolanda got stuck"
"while Blight got some luck"
"Kevin made good deals"
"and Draco got eliminated"

I mean like wth??? It is super lazy haha. Compare this to the amazingly detailed (but still short liners) spiels of old TAR

Also: where is the introduction to the city part? The one describing the city where they start the leg? (example) "This is Singapore. What once was a tiny fishing village, this nation evolved into blah blah blah". It was very cool! Now they got lazy! -_-

------------

But yeah I am surprisingly warm about this season. I like it so far haha. Go Team Fun!

The legs 1-4 being elimination legs I think is too much, eliminating 1 team each leg. If there was a NEL earlier, it would developed getting to know some teams. I just wished that Leg 2 was a NEL and it would have saved Franny & Jessie.

I don't see the big deal with 4 elimination legs in a row at all for Leg 1-4 lol, if anything it's refreshing considering the last time we almost had this was TAR13 if I'm remembering correctly? That's 16 seasons and nearly 9 years ago.

Tar 21 is the last time we have strict 4 eliminations for leg 1-4
The one before TAR21 would be TAR14

Okay I don't know why, but the thing about this season that I'm most cheesed about is that on the Wikipedia page there is no route map as in all the other Wikipedia pages. LOL
