What's about Bopper & Mark? I don't remember when speed bump is placed before FF, or vice versa in TAR 20 Leg 10?

It was placed right before the fast forward, they needed to complete the speed bump before they got the fast forward clue.

Probably the show'll be canceled. At least the whole season'd be screwed.

This has happened in some seasons of Survivor (international versions).

1) Teams saved by Salvage Pass don't need to perform the Speed Bump right?
2) Teams saved by The Save (in the upcoming 25th season) don't need to perform the Speed Bump right?
3) Would you like to barter the Express Pass for The Save or vice versa? (I wonder whether or not it'd happen between teams in the 25th season)
4) Is there any twist that you don't think should ever be introduced in the show?

I hope to God/Buddah/Gandi/Allah/any other religious figure that it never happens to anyone but I think on Survivor Bulgaria they continued even when someone died.

Yes, it was season 4. They did let it continue.

The fifth season premiered 3 days ago. To my surprise they picked it up after a five-year hiatus.

Not to say death, did it rarely happen that someone got injured on The Amazing Race?

The only injury accident in my memory was that Dave broke his Achilles in S22. (Just discount Claire's watermelon in S17; it was not a big deal lol.)

It was a big deal... for Claire and the baby inside her at that time.  :funny:

Jokes aside for Amazing Race (US edition), the only injuries apart from Connor I remember was Lance's injury in Season 5, Gretchen in Season 7, and Mel's hypothermia in UB.

25 seasons and only those few injuries. Not a bad record.

And Brian & Greg's cameraman.

In reference to that, who filmed them for the rest of the leg? Their Sound Guy?

Another case, if I recall it correctly, was on Survivor India where a contestant drowned to death in muddy water in a challenge.

And a cameraman drowned to death in Survivor 19 (if that counts).

Hi.
Since Season 25 will introduce "The Save" twist which will give on the Leg 1 winning team, will The Double Express Pass twist will disappear or the twist still goes on but instead give on the Leg 2 or Leg 3 winning team?  ???

I'M SO SORRY FOR OFF TOPIC, AS THIS STARTED AS A TAR QUESTION AND EVOLVED INTO SURVIVOR DISCUSSION, I WILL POST NO MORE OF THAT HERE :<3

Couldn't find anything about the Indian incident, however, I accidently googled up another casualty of Survivor: France in 2013 o.O

Can a team facing the Speed Bump in one leg just give up the Speed Bump and take Fast Forward instead? If they can, is there any time penalty for them at the pitstop for not finishing the Speed Bump?

Lol how weird, I was thinking about this very thing in class today. I saw this thread and decided to ask about it, the I saw your post  :funny:

Thank you for your reply.  :hrt: But at the same time I feel producer might want the twist is still exist because of 2 reason:
1) Create express pass drama just like Tim & Marie did in Season 23.
2) Save production cost IMO since they have 5/6 legs in Europe which is very expensive to cope, so they only start giving prizes (Cash, trip from Travelocity, Ford, etc.) on leg 3.

If there is a head-shaving FF, what would happen if both people were bald?  :funny:
