Find a tiny surfboard under the sand in TAR Asia 1 leg 3.

It actually depends, but the Hay Bale Roadblock could be on this list, as well as the meat challenge in Argentina.

PS: i would do just fine at the Meat challenge. Seriously.  :funny:

Not the only one.

The second roadblock of the first leg of TAR 22 could be added too.

Well the clue told the racers to dig underneath and sandcastles, not inside them. Most of the teams that were there for a long time was because they didn't read the clue properly. This is how Joey and Meghan went from 10th to 6th.

It was smart of the producers to make the penalty at the pit stop rather than the task location. Doesn't matter, as Aubrey & Jacqueline would still be eliminated but...

TARCAN 4

1. The rappelling task in Jasper in the 1st leg
2. The roadblock where teams have to memorize the smell and the names of the plants in the penultimate leg


and also some of the TAR China tasks, since the penalty's only 1 hour I think.
