A piece of info that isn't really exciting, but in TAR7 all the legs that were multiples of 3 (every 3rd leg) did not have a prize for the first placers. And interestingly, all the legs that Rob and Amber came in first all had accompanying prizes.

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

If Dave/Connor didn't withdraw from the race of leg 5, I thought F3 in TAR 22 would consist 2 M/M (hockey bros and father/son cancer survivors) & F/F (Roller Moms)

I'm surprised that none of the English speaking versions of TAR has had an all-male or all-female final 3. I keep thinking, it has to happen at some point, and came close a few times.

in TAR 20 if Rachel completed leg 3 RB and Dave completed leg 4's ones, I thought Army Couple along with Art & JJ would be two teams never finish outside top 4

Eric & Jeremy in Season 9 and Kris & Jon is Season 6 (They did come 5th in the first half of a Double Length Leg on Leg 6, but I wouldn't count that)

There was a post stating if you finish 1st in Indonesia will not win the race. ???
Jason & Amy already won their first leg in Indonesia in Leg 10 and win the race.
I only care about female team to win or final 3!
Kym & Alli for All Stars please!

It was probably posted before TAR23 aired. :) If you would have quoted the post, we could see the timestamp on it.

-Jet & Cord are the first M/M team to come in 1st and win the Express Pass[es].
-They are also the first M/M team to win the first leg since Tyler & James in TAR10.

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!

Caroline & Jennifer are at this point tied with Kent & Vyxsin for the most legs raced without a first place finish

Something I noticed from TAR24:

At every leg starting Leg 2, if a team departing the Pit Start is shown given a confessional, and the background is different from everyone, they come last on the leg. (Pit Start confs dont count)

Leg 2: Mark & Mallory's confessional background at the start is different from everyone else. (They're the only team to have Pit Start confessional)
Leg 3: Instead of the confessional background from Leg 3, Joey & Meghan's opening confessional is from Leg 2.
Leg 4: Brenchel's confessional is shown with the introduction "Meet the Teams" background.
Leg 5: Margie & Luke and Caroline & Jennifer are both shown with Introductory background for opening confessionals. Ironically, Caroline & Jen would fall last the next leg!
Leg 6: Caroline & Jen's opening confessional is shown from Leg 4.
Leg 7: Jessica & John's opening confessional is from introduction.
Leg 8: Flight Time & Big Easy's opening confessional is from Leg 7.

Just a fun fact! :P

Caroline & Jennifer have ran the most legs in Amazing Race History without (so far) a first place finish on a leg.

This has been evident for quite some time now, and has been happening since UB if I recall, though it could be earlier?
It just sucked when I noticed it first, because for every season since UB I've known who's going home based on this!  :'(
Granted though there's like a 2% chance this will happen and that team wont go home, though very slim!

No M/F team won in every season which had a NEL/TBC/KOR at 9 teams remaining (S9 leg 3 midway point, S17, S18, S22)
First two seasons were win by a best friends team (BJ & Tyler, Nat & Kat)
Latter two seasons were win by a siblings (Kisha & Jen, Bates & Anthony)

Interesting (or maybe not all that interesting) thing I noticed. :lol:

Both, All Stars 1 and Unfinished Business, had only 4 Teams that made it to the Final 3 in their original season.
All Stars 1 - Rob & Amber, Teri & Ian, Joe & Bill and Uchenna & Joyce. (I don't count Eric as he's not a "Team" by himself)
Unfinished Business - Jaime & Cara, Margie & Luke, Ron & Christina and Jet Cord.

And in both Seasons, these teams were eliminated straight after each other, with none making it to the Final 3 for a 2nd time.
All Stars 1 from 8th - 5th.
Unfinished Business from 9th - 6th.

All Stars 2 also follows this same pattern, if we count the three-peats, of only having 4 Teams that previously made it to the Final 3.
The only difference here however is that these 4 Teams weren't eliminated one after the other like the previous 2 seasons.
And up until now, 5th was the highest a Final 3 team placed, but this has been broken by Brenchel.

Anywhoooo, I thought it was kinda neat that all 3 returning cast seasons each had only 4 Teams that reached the Final 3.   :wise

I regret to inform you all that *sigh* Dave & Connor :'( have also accomplished the record of a constant Top 4 finish with a No Damage Run (no bottom 2 finishes where elimination is possible). A record only Margie & Luke (in the US version) have done so far.

All 3 "Allstars" seasons have an all-male team eliminated in 4th place.

Leo and Jamal have done an Oswald and Danny this season, placing 4th in both seasons both teams were on.

And another one: All 3 "Allstars" season have at least one all-female team racing in the final leg.

A co-ed team (Eric and Danielle) won the first one.
An all-female team (Kisha and Jen) won the second one.

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:
