And, I think it's the first time that we have the entire Final Four teams with poor racing performances?
Luke, I've already posted this in the TAR16 speculation thread, but I'll reiterate that the final 4, the final 3, and the entire cast will make some historically bad accomplishments, based on the spoilers.
TAR16 accomplishments (based on spoilers):
- First cast in TAR:US history to not have at least 3 teams with an average placement better than 4. (The following two are corollaries of this accomplishment.)
- First cast in TAR:US history with more than 1 team in the final 4 with an average placement of 4 or worse.
- First cast in TAR:US history with more than 1 team in the final 3 with an average placement of 4 or worse.
Dan & Jordan or Brent & Caite winning would make either team the first winners in TAR:US history with an average placement of 4 or worse, and the absolute worst performing winners in TAR:US history.
(Thanks to theschnauzers for the stats.)
These are the worst two performing winners right now.
06-01 Freddy/Kendra 45/13 3.4615
11-01 Eric/Danielle 47/13 3.6153
The spoilers have Jet & Cord/Brent & Caite/Dan & Jordan finishing, respectively, 1-2-3 in both legs 10 & 11.
If the spoilers are correct, Dan & Jordan would win the race with 52/12 or (4.3333).
If the spoilers are correct, Brent & Caite would win the race with 51/12 or (4.250).
If the spoilers are correct, Jet & Cord would win the race with 29/12 (2.4166).
Jet & Cord, running the table, would give them a better average placement than Nick & Starr who have (2.4545).
The problem that I have with elevating Jet & Cord to the level of a great team is that they have made at least 4 blunders on the race: getting Brazilian currency, finishing the intersection first with Louie & Michael but finishing the leg fourth, going to Champagne without double-checking, and not carrying the bottle with them to the Pit Stop in the Seychelles.
A great team would be wiping the floor with these other teams.
