Why did Scott, London, Tara, and Matt pick their respective SFV Character(s) for the Roadblock?

Mike claims in his exit interview it was about 2 hours.

My questions are more on logistics. I'll post the others soon.

1.) Are they fed well? - This question popped up into my head when they were in Greece doing the Detour where Matt said he wanted to eat the cheese because he was really hungry. I remember coming across separate interviews, Hayley (Hayley & Blair, S.26) described the food sucked and it came to the point where they asked flight attendants for extra food to stash in their backpacks & James (James & Abba, S.21) mentioned at having to grab food even though they are not hungry as they may never see food again.

They are fed in pitstops..otherwise up to them. Spend money or wait for a flight? Most bring protein bars...

Why do so many teams have the "Keesh" hat? I think I saw Olive, Scott, Vanck, and Floyd all at least wear it once  :funny:

Why are there no flight dramas?

There were (mostly unaired). Panama City to Sao Paulo in particular was a mess that got edited down to roughly two minutes of airtime.

Conveniently, that leads to my question(s)-
What flight did teams fly (or at least connection cities, airlines) to get from Athens to Hanoi? and
What flight did Scott try to get he and Brooke tickets for in this video? (fwiw I can see two stops and a reference to a 75 minute lead).

Peach just wondering, is this questions to the teams themselves or just TAR29 in general? I think I may be misinterpreting this thread :lol:

re: TAR29 (this could apply to 28 too maybe): Why did production choose to make new designs for the U-Turn or Speed Bump boards every time they appeared instead of using the uniform board? Spoiler concerns?

A valid question for the youngest 4 of the finale. (Scott, Brooke, Logan, London).

Looking at the edition, what do you think was the differencial to get along during the whole race?

Cause you and your teammates definitly get along better than - example - Shamir & Sara and Vanck & Ashton.

Some insight into the timing after the Seoul leg would be good. I know you mentioned we got a 36hr PS after Ninh Binh, but I don't think we're clear on what happened between Seoul and Chicago. Another extended PS seems strange but likely? I think we were almost considering if there was another leg somewhere.

Then again, maybe the finale will reveal it to us anyway :)

Sara told in London's recap of episode 11 that they were in Italy, on a villa in the Tuscany region.
