Yeah, I'm realizing now that's a minor issue with our Wiki. When pages are newly added to a category, it takes a long while for them to actually show up on the category's page. I was looking at the category:Countries page for quick reference, and Kyrgyzstan and Bahrain are the two newest additions, so I missed them.

Also, shouldn't Peru be dark blue since it was visited in both TARUS and TARLA.

The Amazing Race Franchise now has two national Mr. World titleholders!

First is Jinder Atwal of The Amazing Race Canada's Sukhi & Jinder who won Mr. World Canada in 2016
And now, Jody "JB" Saliba of The Amazing Race Philippines' AJ & Jody was just won Mr. World Philippines 2018!

Also interesting, both of them competed on the second season of their respective country's TAR franchise! Congrats! And best of luck to JB!

Yes. It is the male equivalent for beauty pageants.

Hamerotz LaMillion 5 might be the season with most route info tasks, this season only had 4 roadblocks, 5 detours and 5 face-offs, season 4 had more detours and more roadblock.
Season with most tasks and longest legs for other versions rather than Israel.
Anyone can could the number of route info tasks for all seasons of all versions

Have you seen Season 6? That one only had 6 Roadblocks, 2 Detours and 5 Face-Offs. Plus I think that one in general had more ARI tasks than season 5.

30 seasons into the US version and I still don't think there's ever been a team that placed in the Top 3 every leg. Unless you count Kristi & Jen, which I don't. The 7th leg technically put them in a last-place tie with Jody.

That feat has been accomplished at least twice on foreign versions - Alon & Oren on Israel 2 (although they didn't make Top 3 during that elimination point that took out Gadi & Alona), and Rovilson & Marc from Asia 2.

Had they not swapped partners, they possibly could make it.

Does TAR 28 Leg 3 (Cartagena) hold the record for the shortest physical distance between the pit start and the pit stop for a given leg? According to google maps, Plaza de Boliviar and Baluarte de Santiago are only 300 meters apart and a 3 minute walk.

TAR Australia vs New Zealand's final leg is the only leg to cross the equator twice.

I wonder if the following records are still valid

Teams finishing 5th and 10th in the first leg never win
Teams finishing 5th in the 5th leg never win
teams shown 5th in the intro caps never win

Art & JJ, Natalie & Nadiya and Mallory are the only all-star racers eliminated early not to visit a new country.

(New country as in not on their original season).

Note: In Mallory's case, includes TAR 18 appearance.

Given fact on the 1st Leg of S.31
Leo & Jamal won a leg in a country (Japan) that eliminated them on their 1st appearance. Total redemption.

Season 31 appears to be the first season ever in the mothership where the opening credits appearance of the teams were in a clear sequence, with returning TAR teams first as a group, then Survivor, and then Big Brother, and then within each group, teams were in the order of the first appearance on their original shows.

Nicole and Victor appear on Big brother later than the Reiley Sisters.

Art/JJ were on TAR before Leo/Jamal, Becca/Floyd and Tyler/Korey yet are shown last among the TAR contestants.

The 3 groups of Survivor contestants do appear to be in the order of appearance on that show.

TAR 29's final 3 teams together have the least number of legs win, only 5 out of the 12 legs (3 by Tara & Joey and 2 by Brooke & Scott).

Before that, 8, 10, 18, 19 and 21 held the record with 6 wins.
