Yes Toni and Dallas had passport issues. Dallas is blaming the Producers of the show. Here is the article:

After reading the article, I believe, in fairness, it would be appropriate for the producers to award Dallas and Toni a free trip to some exotic location. I'm pretty sure Expedia Travel could give the show a cut rate. It would be good P.R. for both Amazing Race and Expedia if they made the gesture.imho

I read the same article. It sounded like Dallas still lost his stuff fair and square. His real issue is how they edited it for a more seamless story line. Dallas says:

“What happened was I had to do a microphone battery change. I was in the cab for about an hour. The driver didn’t know where he was going. I said, ‘I need a new taxi.’ So, as I was getting out to do the microphone change [the Amazing Race staff] undid my fanny pack with all my stuff in it because they had to get to the microphone. When I got out of the first taxi, it wasn’t attached to me anymore."

So Dallas decided to change taxi - his choice. Production took advantage of the pause to change mic's. After three weeks of mic changes, Dallas can hardly claim not to know the procedure.

Whether he removed his own pack or they did, he's still responsible for realizing whether or not he has his own stuff. I don't think that's deserving of a consolation prize. Besides, being such a lunkhead and yet dating Starr, he's already won the lottery.

Can't argue with that! She's not only hot but also athletic!

And she is $500 000 USD richer (before taxes).

Jeez a month later I finally got to watch the final. I somehow managed to avoid all talk about TAR and the ending. Anyhoo I thought it was a great series. Since I opted out of the last one. Way to go Nick and Star.
