In S20 FBI team compete under the incognito of "kindgarten teachers." Is it the first time that a team didn't reveal the real identity to others? (I don't think similar things happened a lot on Survivor either. Russell Hantz did so on Survivor 19.)

In Season 15, Maria & Tiffany said they work for a non-profit organization.

But a guy at the airport in Japan revealed the truth about them.  The lie last for only 1 leg.  :groan:

I think somebody has asked about it, but what really happened in Ukraine in season 10? Wikipedia stated that Phil was detained for particular reason :duno:

In fact, he said that he worked "protecting people"  :lol:,  and later, in the excerpts, he said that it was his job in the team, so he didn't lie...

True. It was due to visa problems. His American or New Zealand visa (I've forgotten which one) didn't work in Ukraine, so Phil was detained by the police. Finally American Embassy saved him, and Phil successfully made it to be at the pistop prior to the first team arriving.

Where does the soundman sit in the taxi of the Azerbaijan (TAR20) leg?

From what I could see, the taxis had 3 rows of seats. Perhaps they sat in the middle row.

They are indeed. And from what I've read/watched of them, they probably had only seen one episode at the most.

To any former racer who might be reading this, has anybody actually tried to throw the third leg, reading about the third place curse?

whats the 3rd place curse?
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

When a team wins the 3rd leg, they do not win the race. In same cases, they would lose the next leg as well.

There have been a few instances, particularly in the more recent seasons of Camera & Sound men being in the shot. Usually its not for very long though. The only really glaring issue I've ever found is Kelly & Christy being visible in the background, watching Andrew and Dan complete their speed bump three legs after they were eliminated

Complete Fail

actually looking back on this if u rember kelly and Christy were NOT sent to the villia they were probably running as decoys


And Kelly and Christy told us they honestly didn't know they were caught in the footage. :lol3:

Watch the opening of TAR15 license plate challenge. I think every camera and sound guy had a cameo....

Do the racers get some kind of merchandise from one country they have visited? I mean like official picture or photograph or something to show their friends and relatives that they have visited that country.

I don't think they're allowed. If they are allowed to do so they'd have already showed those pictures or gifts on Facebook even after the show aired. :)

They don't get anything....except most seasons they get a short DVD of some of their clips.

This might be a stupid question, but does the pit-stop greeter only greet the first and last teams? Like "Welcome to India!" or do they do it for all teams, just that they edit it out?

I just wanted to know why they don't have 13 legs anymore? I believe the last time we had 13 legs was in Season 11 (All-Stars).
