RaceUntilWeDie:
In Season 21, the team who placed 2nd in the first leg were eventually the 2nd team to be eliminated, the team who placed 3rd in the first leg were eventually the 3rd team to eliminated. That's not all - the team who placed 2nd-to-last in the first leg placed 2nd overall, and the team who placed 3rd-to-last in the first leg placed 3rd overall. :lol:
