I haven't heard of any rule change regarding the Fast Forward. In the past, they haven't mentioned it if no one goes for it. With the departure times of the teams so close together (less than an hour between 1st and last), it doesn't surprise me that no one felt it necessary at this early stage of the race. FYI, the CBS website says "No Team used the Fast Forward on this leg", implying that there was one available.Originally Posted by Florimel
Again, the CBS website says "No Team found the Yield on this leg." (Emphasis added.)I don't think there was a Yield either.
Interesting choice of words. It implies that, not only must a team find it, but that the team forced to Yield must also. Otherwise, how would they even know that the Yield had been used on them? (In the first episode, the Yield was situated directly on the path to the butcher shop, so it would have been unavoidable.)
Speculating: I think the Yield may have been located at either the ferry or the Recoleta cemetery. After all, it couldn't have been at the Detour, as there would be no way for any one team to know which option another team had taken. (Using the Yield on "Tango" when the targeted team opted for "Perro" would be useless.) And, if the Yield had been located at the Roadblock, it would have been (a) fairly easy to find, as there weren't a lot of distractions around; and (b) almost certainly used by either Chip & Kim or Kami & Karli, as both teams knew they were neck-and-neck at the back of the pack.
Until we actually see the Yield in play, we're just going to have to guess at exactly how it works.
