Yes and no. The mother/son team last year was eliminated last year and had lost their passports. That said, they were too far behind to have made it in time, and the other teams had gotten to the mat before they did, so they were eliminated for being the last team to check in.Originally Posted by i_used2bophelia;3411301;
That said, according to their interview, Phil said that had they still made it to the mat before the last team to check in, they'd still been eliminated because they did not have their credentials. They did get their passports back I believe the next day at the Embassy (their taxi driver actually returned them), but it was open after all the other teams had left so it was regardless.
