I couldn’t even watch every time they were being said at the beginning of challenges.”
Despite the negative reaction on the new twist, the teaser for season 42 revealed that the Beware Advantage will be returning. There will be three new odd phrases to activate their idol. According to the teaser, one of the phrases is, “Potatoes have skin. I have skin. Am I a potato?” The two other phrases have yet to be revealed.
