The Resurrection Card, also known as the Return Ticket allows the user to resurrect or save another team or allows an eliminated team to return to the Race. It is similar to the Salvage Pass but lacks any time advantage ability as the Salvage Pass does. Furthermore, its use differs between seasons.


The Resurrection Card first appeared in the first Chinese version. It was given to the winners of the eighth leg and was to be used on the next leg immediately to bring an eliminated team back to the race.

Zhang Zhehan & Zhang Sifan win the Resurrection Card.

The Resurrection Card appeared again two seasons later where it was given to the winners of the second leg, and had to be used to save another team before the end of the fourth leg.

It appeared once again in HaMerotz LaMillion 6 a special "lifeline" leg, where all of the eliminated teams (except for two teams) competed in a Superleg with the winners earning the Return Ticket allowing them to use it on themselves to re-enter the race.
