    Then Reichen & Chip would've been fighting it out with Millie & Chuck for last place and subsequent elimination instead of Kelly & Jon.

    What if Susan & Patrick's boat hadn't broken down?

    Then because Meredith & Gretchen were led in the wrong direction by Ray & Deana, they would've probably survived and Meredith & Gretchen woul've gotten eliminated.

    What if Hope & Norm beat out Blake & Paige in Leg 2 of TAR2? How much longer would they still be in the race?

    Then Blake & Paige would've been eliminated and, assuming Peggy & Claire still made their connection error, as well as Shola & Doyin having the bad luck they had in Namibia, Hope & Norm probably would've at least made the F7 or even the F6. Maybe even the F5, assuming Mary & Peach still screwed up in China.

    What if Peggy & Claire hadn't tried to gamble in finding the original Girl from Iponema?

    Then Diedre & Hilary would've beaten them at the other challenge and they would've been eliminated.

    I don't know if this is true or not, but according to Wikipedia, Hope and Norm did beat Blake and Paige because their car broke down. Blake subsequently threatened to sue, so they were given a time credit. But ironically beginning with season 3, there is something in the rules that if a "car breaks through no fault of the team a replacement car will be given but no time credit, so it's a possibility.

    Anyway, back to the topic at hand, Amazing you forgot to give another what if statement after your last one. I will go ahead and let you do that :-)

    No, TWoP confirmed that Blake & Paige actually did beat Hope & Norm there.

    Sorry I forgot to add my what if.

    Anyways, what if Flo had chosen to perform the final Road Block rather than Zach?

    But did their car break down but they still beat them, or did their car not break down at all?

    It broke down, but they still beat them, because Hope & Norm got really lost, but that wasn't shown.

    Anyway, then Teri & Ian would've won.

    What if Uchenna & Joyce had followed Eric & Danielle when they saw them with the local kids in Mozambique?

    Then Uchenna & Joyce would've avoided a thirty minute penalty and still finished third in the following leg. Eric & Danielle would've had the thirty minute penalty but still finished fifth.

    What if Oswald & Danny broke their deal with Dustin & Kandice and yielded them instead?

    Then Oswald & Danny still would've come in last and gotten marked.

    What if the final All-Stars task had been more of a race-in-review-type challenge like TAR8, TAR9, and TAR10 rather than something so insanely luck-based?

    The BQ's would most likely have won.

    What if Kim, Nicole, and Christie had performed more Roadblocks?

    Most of the other teams in the top 7 were weak except the final 3. The only leg it would have mattered was the next to the last leg. Karen started before Colin but Colin finished first. So, if Christie had done the roadblock, her and Colin more than likely would have been eliminated and the Bowling moms would have been in the final 3.
    What if Bama had been eliminated instead of Jamie and Kelly? How would that have changed the "six pack" and how could that have affected the final 3?

    Given the attitude of the Conleys and the Chos, they wouldn't have fared much differently. As for the final three, it would be the BQ's instead of Bama, making for a more competitive final three.

    What if there wasn't an elimination point midway through the first leg of TAR10?

    Then based on how bad they were at directing their pedicab driver, Vipul & Arti would've been eliminated first and Bilal & Sa'eed would've at least made the F7 or even F6, assuming they didn't mess up at the Great Wall climb.

    What if Lisa had been able to drive stick?

    Then she and Joni would've beaten out Fran & Barry. They would've lasted the next leg assuming Wanda & Desiree and Danielle & Dani still screwed up and the leg after as well because Danielle & Dani were yielded. They would've probably made it there, to the F7.

    What if the Weaver Family chose Ripe rather than Relic?

    Then the lovely, charming Gaghans would've made the F5 and the Weavers would've been eliminated.

    What if the Pink Ladies had chosen the wagon wheels instead of the teepee?

    Then the Godlewskis would've been the first female finalists (rather than the undeserving Lyn & Karlyn) and might possibly have won. No Weavers in the F3 would be the biggest advantage of this.

    What if the Gaghan Family made the first bus in Leg 3? How would this affect the rest of their race?

    Then whoever just edged them out would've been on the last bus. Either way, the Aiellos still would've gone home.

    What if MoJo had done Wet instead of Dry in Darwin, Australia?

    Then MOJO would of been way behind the hippies and Eric and jeremy but would of caught up at the footrace to the pitstop and would've gotten last but non eliminated. What if Dennis and Erika didn't let people pass them?
