Some interesting (and some not so interesting) facts and records!

<< < (64/184) > >>

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

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)

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.
