Here's one for you:

The only team to win 5 out of the first 7 legs are...
Andy & Tommy (S19)!

Nick & Starr (S13) and Eric & Jeremy (S9) won 4 of the first 7.


Most First Places in one season:
7- Meghan & Cheyne (S15)
7- Nick & Starr (S13)
6- Colin & Christie (S5)
5- Andy & Tommy (S19) (with 5 legs still to go)
5- Nat & Kat (S17)
5- Tammy & Victor (S14)
5- Eric & Jeremy (S9)
5- BJ & Tyler (S9)
5 - Rob & Brennan (S1)

In the US TAR, teams that are saved by a NEL/TBC at the first leg gets eliminated in 6th place (Maria & Tiffany and Jet & Cord). Lets just hope that Bill & Cathi break that spell!!!

5 - Rob & Brennan (S1)
The international teams with 5 or more wins:

8- Marc & Rovilson (Asia 2) (6 of the first 7)
6- Charlie & Rachel (China Rush 1)
5- Felipe & Alejandro (Latin America 3) (5 wins as of the 7th leg)
5- Perri & Maristela (Brazil)
5- Rick & Josh (China Rush 1)

Something I should add is that Asia 2 had a very weak cast and LA3 hasn't had any equalizers.
Let's see if Andy & Tommy and the doctors can break this third leg curse.

If you want to use your xpress pass to come in first, you will get passed by another team at the last minute/second

If your team is the first in Lap 3, you'll definitely not get the $1 million in the end.
Of all the winners of Leg 3, only 5 of them have made the final three (and all 5 of them came second).

As for Andy & Tommy - there is no curse! In Lap 3 Laurence & Zac initially arrived 1st, but were issued a 15-minute penalty. So the curse was on Laurence & Zac. Now they are eliminated

:welcome: to RFF, Ratori! But Andy and Tommy won leg 5 too. :(

But I wonder how the penalty affects the spell?

According to all these patterns Ernie and Cindy would be eliminated fourth, Andy and Tommy can't win and Bill and Cathi will win because they were second on leg 8.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

One thing to keep in mind. The "home field" curse. For Anami and Marcus, Atlanta is essentially a home field since their current residence is not far down the Interstate from metro Atlanta, and they'd get the Atlanta TV stations at home.

Teams making the final three with a home field advantage IIRC have never won TAR. Season 1 (Frank and Margarita in New York), season 2 (Tara and Wil in San Francisco), season 5 (Colin and Christie in Dallas) come immediately to mind, and that's enough to show my point.

TS mentioned this over in the Episode 12 topic. Is there any evidence to disprove it?

Since I'm assuming it's in a spoiler thread, I'll post this here. I know it's really irrelevant to this thread, but I really don't want to know who wins.

I've seen several people say that Colin & Christie had the home field advantage, but they're from Corpus Christi. That's miles away! If they're considered to be from Dallas, Chip & Kim and Brandon & Nicole should be as well because they all lived in Texas.



Oh yes, three days after it airs. My apologies.

I really thought that's only for Survivor. And shockingly it exist for TAR as well. Who were the teams who won cars on TAR and never won the race?

Zev and Justin, Bransen Family and Andy and Tommy... who else? Can't really remember.

The car curse doesn't really work I'm afraid.. Nick & Starr broke it!

S7: Ray & Deana won a car on Leg 5 and were eliminated in 7th in the following leg.
S8: Bransen Family won a car on Leg 11 and finished the race in 2nd.
S11: Dustin & Kandace won a car on Leg 12 and finished the race in 2nd.
S12: Ron & Christina won a car on Leg 9, also won the next leg and finished in 2nd.
S13: Ken & Tina won a car on Leg 2, also won the next leg and finished in 2nd.
S13: Nick & Starr won a car on Leg 6 and won the race.
S18: Zev & Justin won a car on Leg 8, won the next leg and finished in 4th.

Regarding Nick/Starr, didn't Phil take care to not specify that it was a car (or the brand of the car)?
