That's not how the bopper rule works. For example if Ryan from Ryan and Dusty is replaced with Cord from The Cowboys aka a new player this season then the teams that drafted Ryan and Dusty now have Ryan and Cord.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

The Bopper rule is from when Bopper & Mark were originally set to compete in The Amazing Race: All-Stars, but Bopper was deemed unfit by the medical team due to showing signs of pancreatitis before the race began. Mark was eventually paired with The Amazing Race 17 and The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business racer Mallory Ervin, who was flown in as a last-minute replacement for Bopper. So if you drafted Mark and Bopper originally you now have Mark and Mallory. Edited to add: The Bopper rule doesn't apply to completely new teams. Just if one player from one team is replaced.

This is what Iím trying to figure out. My hope is that the race will resume with 7 teams. The 2 added teams could be the Singing cops and/or Arun & Natalia. If both teams return, then thereís no need for the Bopper rule which would only apply if 1 or more new teams enter the race..

Yes it does. If Mark and Bopper had been replaced by Mallory and Gary, I would have handled it the same way.

Ok. It should reworked then, because it's not written that way currently. It just says contestant and not contestants or teams.

That's a good point, I was assuming the race was going to resume with 9 teams. Do we even know the race with resume with 7 teams, was that said by Phil? Could it resume with 5?

The problem is that we will know which teams old/new/mix are in the run just an hour before someone likely gets eliminated, so you can't sit down and look at the new configuration and then decide what's going to happen before an elimination happens.

Youíre right, the wording is singular, but I meant 1 or both members of the team. One more reason why I hope the Bopper rule isnít needed.

not only that, but Iím in the Pacific time zone, so any surprises wonít get to me until later.

I hadnít really thought about hybrid teams. All I can think to do would be to combine them and split prize money.

for example, Ryan and Lulu team up because Dusty and Lala canít continue, then lwhy? And Goldberg74 will share them in game one and JuryDuty and dfmaverick2 will share them in game two.

If there are hybrid teams a 4 way split of the $110 pot is more than fair. $27.50 to each winner if they win.

Thankfully, this will all clear up on Wednesday. Ultimately, I blame COVID. (And I just tested positive, after already having the vaccine, too. Feels like a nasty cold...binging Netflix now...)

I was assuming that 7 teams were going to return and 2 would not due to Covid or other conflicts. If they add 2 teams they would resume with 9. I donít remember where I got this idea. All I can say is that I havenít read any spoilers.

Now I have to go to Paramount+ and rewatch the ending.

Iím starting to think that running this game this season was a mistake.

It's most definitely 10 players/5 teams they show returning. I just looked. But Snipping Tool won't let me copy the screen image.
Edit : here's a picture

Here's the promo from the end of the episode. Don't click if you don't want to see. But only a few of them are shown:

Why I'm having the most fun
Eh whatever you decide works. Don't stress yourself out. I think it makes it more interesting. When have we ever had a 4 team elimination in one episode. But it'll be fine watch the episode decide what's going to happen from then on and it'll be fine.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

BTW that promo gives it all away (well, almost). Pretty much spells it all out. I'm surprised TAR put out a promo like that and didn't do it as a surprise at the beginning of episode 3 vs. doing it at the end of episode 2. Stop right before announcing the break and just end with the elimination and then start episode 3 with we are going to take a break, then we're back, etc.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

OK, I replayed the ending and the promo for next week.

Five teams are returning, Phil announced some “familiar faces” would join them. Seven teams appear in a wide shot when Phil announces “Go!”

We can only assume that the Singing Cops and Arun & Natalia are the familiar faces. The ownership of these teams was already decided in the drafts. This means that whoever drafted the 4 COViD eliminated teams are out.

If they are not, the Bopper rule wasn’t designed to handle multiple substitutions, so if the 2 replacement teams are “familiar faces” from previous seasons; say for example the original Twinnies and Cowboys Jet & Cord, then whoever drafted the 4 COViD eliminated teams will share the rights to the replacement teams and split any prize money equally.

I hope this covers everything, because my brain hurts!

Sorry Decker & davidh777, both of your teams are done. Thanks for playing.

Sorry Wolf359, TheGuy, & CKMorpheus. Thanks for playing.

and JuryDuty, lwhy? And GatorDeb are down to just one team.

Don’t forget everyone, no spoilers with or without tags are permitted in the game thread.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

I usually Spoiler major things that happen in the episode or movie I'm posting about in general so my Spoiler tags in this thread will reference the latest episode in case anyone wanders here without having watched it first.

When Phil said

Spoiler:


Someone may be eliminated I was certain there was not going to be an elimination. When he told the cops they were eliminated I had my mouth open.


I was so proud of Sherri and I wanted to kick Akhbar for not hugging her when she came back and telling her how proud he was of her. Forget the race, experiences like this change you for life. At least he didn't say anything, I was going to be furious with him if he got on her case about it.

The tall people had a flag advantage with more leg room. When Akhbar was getting on Sherri's case about it I was like she's short where do you want the flag to go?

I thought the judge that the twins had was waaaay easier than the one at station one.

[​​​​​​/Spoiler]
