    Hello everybody!


    The TAR20 cast has been unveiled, so let's get our pool underway! (I realise that I still have to update the final leg of the previous one! Very soon, I promise!)


    Scoring System:


    *First team eliminated: +50 points
    *Your team is eliminated as part of a double elimination leg: +10 points
    *Your team gets on a faster flight that no other team is on and they arrive 1st at the current destination because of it (this does NOT apply if they get the flight, but then it gets delayed/other problems): +15 points
    *Your team gets engaged: +30 points
    *Your team is penalised 30 minutes: +5 points
    *Your team wins the Fast Forward: +35 points
    *Your team Yields another team: +25 points
    *Your team uses the U-Turn on another team: +25 points
    *Your team receives the U-Turn, but still survives the leg: +35 points
    *Your team gets the non-elimination leg: +15 points
    *Your team survives the "Speed Bump": +25 points
    *Your team begins one Detour, but switches to another (multiple Detour switches will accrue multiple points): +10 points
    *Your team is the only team to successfully complete one side of the Detour: +15 points
    *Someone on your team says the quote in the episode title: +10 points
    *Your team successfully uses the power of the Express Pass: +25 points
    *Your team is the first to complete a Starting Line Challenge: +30 points
    *Your team survives the Hazard: +25 points
    *Per Leg:
    --Your team wins the leg: +30 points
    --Your team comes in 2nd: +20 points
    --Your team comes in 3rd: +10 points
    *Your team begins the leg in last place, but finishes the leg in first place: +20 points
    *Your team begins the leg in first place, but finishes the leg in last place: +5 points
    *Your team wins consecutive legs of the race: +20 points
    *Your team finishes in the same position (but not first place) on consecutive legs: +10 points
    *4th place: +70 points
    *3rd place: +140 points
    *2nd place: +280 points
    *Winner: +560 points
    *For Seasons With Past Racers Returning:
    *Your team places higher than they did in their previous season: +10 points for each position higher

    Thanks for notifying me about TAR20.


    I go for the Tanaka sisters from San Diego and hope that they will cope well with the challenges.

    Great choices everybody! I actually like every team right now, and that hasn't happened since TAR3! I was torn between Dave & Rachel, Elliott & Andrew and Nary & Jamie!

    I'll just pick Joey & Danny. I couldn't post it with numbers because I keep getting the ridiculous "tag br may not have attribute style" message.
