Lucy and Emilia hold the record from leg 1 to 10.

Even after being arrested in Dubai and almost having a complete Yani & Nadine moment (last place & last place combo). :funny:

ryanmissing27:
Is the 'turn over a new leaf' detour the first task to feature a credible animal threat? (i.e. the snakes in the tea plantation)
Past examples of animal warning haven't really produced any animals:
- the fake bear in Sweden S17
- the bushmen feigning fear of a lion to try and get Caroline/Jennifer to climb a tree S22
- the 'crocodiles' in the Botswana fast forward (S22)
Although I think there was something with tigers in India in season 1, I can't remember exactly...

--- Quote from: ryanmissing27 on November 25, 2013, 05:55:32 AM ---*Disclaimer: I haven't verified this* but I propose that Nicky and Kim (current season: 23) performed the most tasks in completing one leg: UAE2 = 6
1. coin riddle
2. dune buggies
3. & 4. both sides of the detour : dress camel, prepare food
5. wave pool speed bump
6. rapids roadblock
For this I classify one complete leg as being from pit start to pit stop (even if it is fake, virtual, whatever). I think the only contention would come from the double leg in season 6; in that case they are the F/F team that has completed the most tasks in one leg or the team in the current racing era, i.e. since the introduction of the u-turn i guess...

I think it's a pretty neat record, contradict me if you can!

Correct, but only for a standard Leg. (TAR9's final nine ties the record due to the Leg 3 superleg.)

To break Nicky & Kim's record, TAR Asia 2's final 7 performed the most tasks in one leg (superleg): 7

Season 1's India visited the Karni Mata rats... *shivers*.
Thailand featured the tiger (Lenny & Karyn never saw tigers.), but was shown as a Roadblock.

The elephants Nary & Jamie saw from TAR20, Tanzania (Ngorongoro Crater Park) are another example.

toanglobal:
Aside TAR 22, on all versions TAR goes to Vietnam (S3, S10 and S15) always have begun with 12 teams
Never NEL/TBC on leg 2
TARVN 1 may be first version ever have two first NEL in first two legs and also have most roadblock tasks (15 including Double RBs in leg 9 and leg 13)
