What if the yielded/u-turned team intentionally skip the yield/u-turn punishment?

Such a rare occasion i know :funny:, but maybe at a moment a team would be literally in this case
what might have been

That happened once in Canada. One got injured on the Roadblock and therefore they couldn't finish either Detour. They were already last, so whatever the penalty would have been never got mentioned.

Local casting agencies, guides, people who work at the Pit Stop location, people from production who knows a guy (Phil's dad in season 13 :waves:).

Has any team that is basically ''workhorse female partner, useless male partner'' ever appeared in any of the Race iterations?
Adam & Rebeeca (S6)
Ron & Chris (S12, 18)
Margie & Luke (S14, 18, and I don't agree them for 24)
Nick & Vicki (S17)
Shamir & Sara (S29)
Terence & Sarah from season 13 to a degree.

For TAR US only, in a leg with Head to head, one team faces a flight drama/injury or losing passport, what would happen for second to last team

I would assume they'd have to wait for as long as the last team arrived at that point. It's unfair and a loophole, but that's just the name and description of the task.

In Israel if one team were injured in face-off tasks this tasks would be canceled, but the injury team still received 15 minutes penalty, it occured two times in HMLM 4 (leg 4 & 7)

Joe & Bill received non-eliminations three separate times in their two seasons combined.

And Lucy & Emilia from the Australian version for sure unless I'm missing a team.

Yeah, Lucy & Emilia came to my mind too because they got 4 back to back last/2nd to last placements right at the beginning.

But actually they had "only" 6 last/2nd to last placements compared to Kami & Karli and Josh & Brent who got 7.

So I wonder if there is another team who got 7 or more?

This is not a mystery, but maybe the deepest secret in TAR franchise, and if u are a superfans must know this one:
how many person per team as they compete around the world?

For HMLM 7 leg 3 if Eyal & Sid voted to yield Ariel & Karin instead of Ben & Ran, we would have 11-way tie yield, what would happen later.

As for the English-language versions - Josh & Brent, Kami & Karli, and Terri & Henry (Asia 2) all have 7 bottom-2 placings (if you count the pit stop in Fukuoka as a separate leg). But in career totals - Flight Time & Big Easy have 9 (most of a team), and Rachel Reilly has 10 (most of a single racer)!

Have there been any emergency landings while on airplanes in the history of TAR? The only one I can think of off the top of my head is the TAR18 premiere, where it was a medical emergency requiring a stopover in Hawaii.

In one of the Canadian seasons, a racer had a medical emergency, not sure if that required a stopover.

 I can't remember if the first flight to Chile (Jordeff was on this as were other teams) in TAR16 was grounded or just canceled; I know they ended up on the second flight with all other teams.

I think you're thinking of the premiere of TAR7, and that was a domestic Peru flight.
