Yes, right at the start of the race. But I'm thinking another team lost their passports and were forced to drop out of the race a few seasons back.
Yeah, it has happened twice before.
The first time was in season 13, which ironically, happened the same way in the same city. Dallas (of Toni & Dallas) dropped his bag that included their passports in a cab in Moscow. They would have finished last anyway, but also, they were not able to make it to the finish line in Portland with the other eliminated teams. Too bad, because it would have spared us of Dandrew in the final leg.
The other time was in season 15, when Zev (of Zev & Justin) lost his in Pheom Penh. Probably the saddest elimination ever, as they arrived first at the mat, but could not find it by the time all the others checked in, and eliminated as a result. Luckily for them, they had a 2nd chance to race in Unfinished Business.
Almost happened in season 19, as mentioned by others, happening at a gas station in LA. It's still hard to believe the way all of that happened.
But back to this season... I do think the TBC is not only for the rockers, but also the 2 teams sticking together, as something has to give there.
And we will subjected to 2 more legs of the loudmouths, at the very least.
