This "all stars" season (so far) has had the most teams repeat their placing from their previous season with Leo & Jamal in fourth and Margie & Luke in eighth.

Dave & Connor also will at the very least tie for  the biggest position jump from their previous season to their current season. So far the record holder is Zev & Justin who jumped from 9th place in Season 15 to 4th place in Season 18.
It's Clobbering Time!

If Dave and Connor win this race, that will be different hybrid of teams winning an Allstars season, and also the first parent-child to win. And.. the oldest person to win TAR. :res:
Dave- "I'm 60! I'm too old and weak to be U-Turned!"

He then proceeds to win. Are you too weak NOW? Rrrg it's frustrating.

Brendon & Rachel are the first TEAM ever to reach the Final 3 for 2 times (Eric was the first person,but he did it with different partners).

There have been 65 71 NEL's through the past 23 seasons (this excludes all fake Pit Stops in which the "leg was not over;" however it does include the legs with no rest period beginning in TAR 18).

0 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 12 teams remaining.
3 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 11 teams remaining (15, 18, 19).
0 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 10 teams remaining.
3 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining (17, 18, 22).
5 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining (6, 16, 19, 20, 23).
9 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining (5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22).
12 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining (1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23).
15 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 5 teams remaining (1, 2, 3[x2], 4, 5[x2], 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19, 20, 22).
18 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining (1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11[x2], 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 21, 23).
6 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 3 teams remaining (1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9).

Digging deeper into the NEL's..

Out of the 3 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 11 teams remaining, 3/3 were survived.
Out of the 3 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining, 3/3 were survived.
Out of the 5 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining, 3/5 were survived (16, 20, 24).
Out of the 8 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining, 8/9 were survived (all except 14).
Out of the 12 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining, 6/12 were survived (2, 6, 8, 13, 16, 18).
Out of the 15 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 5 teams remaining, 9/15 were survived (2, 3[x2], 4, 5[x2], 8, 9, 22)
-Interestingly, no team has survived a 5th place NEL since Season 9's BJ & Tyler.
Out of the 18 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining, 11/18 were survived (1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11[x1], 12, 13, 15).
Out of the 6 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 3 teams remaining, 3/6 have eventually won the Race. (2, 3, 7).

-Beth & Mona are the first team since Season 9's BJ & Tyler to survive a 5th-place NEL.

Biggest Improvement from a NEL/KOR (Last place):
11th to 3rd: Jet & Cord (TAR18)
9th to 4th: Michael & Kevin (TAR17)
8th to 4th: Nicky & Kim (TAR23)
7th to 2nd: Caroline & Jennifer (TAR24)
6th to 1st: Jet & Cord (TAR16)
5th to 1st: John Vito & Jill (TAR3)
4th to 1st: David & Jeff (TAR4), BJ & Tyler (TAR9)
3rd to 1st: Chris & Alex, Flo & Zach, Uchenna & Joyce

The teams in bold had to complete a Speed Bump, so kudos to them!

Why Nick & Vicki not? They jumped from 7th to 3rd.
Our team is not our feminine is not my care and I only care about female team to win or final 3!
Rooting for Amaya, Flight Attendants, Bike Racers in TAR 25 and Rex & Bob, Ryan & Rob, Alain & Audrey, Sukhi & Jinder, and Hockey Girls in TAR Canada 2.

Bit of a Random Fact that I thought of there:

Every season of the US Version has had at least one M/F team in the Final 3, (As of Season 23)
But has NEVER had a Final 3 that consists of 2 M/M Teams, and 1 F/F Team.

I find this funny as both Australian Seasons, and the Canadian Season has had a Final 3 Combination of 2 M/M & 1 F/F,
and neither of these seasons have ever had a M/F Team in the Final 3.  :cmas10 :cmaslol
As so far I know in these seasons had NEL/KOR/TBC legs for 9 teams remaining (US season 9;17;18;22 and Vietnam season 2, VN season 3 is currently being aired) no M/F team ever was win

I'm currently compiling statistics into another excel file, but for now some interesting facts I've seen  :)

The rarest team type (MM,MF,FF - Family,Friends,Couple combination) is the FF-Couple. Only 2 of them have been in the Race (Kate & Pat in S12, and Carol & Brandy in S16).

This is followed by MM-Couple with 8, counting repeat seasons: Joe & Bill (1 & 11), Reichen & Chip (4), Lynn & Alex (7), Tom & Terry (10), Ron & Bill (19), Josh & Brent (21), Tim & Te Jay (25).

Third rarest is MF-Friends with 9, counting repeat seasons: Flo & Zach and Aaron & Arianne (3), Russell & Cindy (4), John Vito & Jill (11), Ari & Staella (12), Joey & Meghan (22 & 24), Tim & Marie (23), and Mark & Mallory (24).

After that (counting repeat seasons and season 25):
MF-Family: 20
FF-Family: 21
MM-Family: 27
FF-Friends: 38
MM-Friends: 41
MF-Couple: 102 woah

Also, there have been at least 4 MF teams per season (5 seasons have 4 MF teams) and a record of 8 MF teams (season 6). Meanwhile, only 2 seasons have 4 FF teams (17 & 25), the most of any season, while season 15 have the least (w/ 1 FF team). MM teams have a range of 1 (3 seasons) to 5 (2 seasons) per season.

Everytime that TAR US has been to Australia there have been two legs there AND one of those legs has been a non-elimination.

These facts probably won't last past the second season (unless there's some type of curse), but:

Some for TAR Canada:
The first two legs are always in British Columbia (not including starting line). [S1 Kelowna/Vancouver, S2 Victoria/Tofino]
If you're second-to-last in the first leg, you will be last and eliminated in the second leg. [S1 Jamie/Pierre, S2 Jen/Shawn]
Every team who was eliminated at the first pitstop had previously incurred a time penalty. [S1 Treena/Tennille, S2 Shahla/Nabeela ]

Due to their short length, they are probably in the "not so interesting" category for now.  :funny:

(Not so) interesting Fact, but cool all the same :lol: .... After last nights TARCA Leg 3, Natalie & Meaghan have tied Rombers Amazing, (Pun Intended), record from TAR AS of winning the first 3 Legs.

This marks only the second time it's happened (in an English Speaking Season), and if they keep this up, Dave & Rachel could be in jeopardy of losing the crown of most leg wins in a single season.  Not sure whether I'd like to see them take that record though?  ???
All the same, I'm quite happy to see Romber's record tied, and hopefully beaten next week, by an all female team.  :yess:

More from TAR Canada:
The first team eliminated was a F/F Team (S1 Treena/Tennille, S2 Shahla/Nabeela)
The 9th place team was a F/F (S1 Treena/Tennille, S2 Jackie/Laura)
The 3rd Episode was Producer-Named (S1 Hoodoos and Hoo-don'ts, S2 Snakes and Liars)
