Of all the FF users in 20 seasons, only six of them didn't arrive in first place.

-Joe & Bill                  4th
-Dennis & Andrew    10th
-Monica & Sheree      4th
-Tyler & James           2nd
-Rob & Kimberly         3rd
-Bopper & Mark          5th

Incidentally, D&A and B&M, were eliminated because of it.
Also, season 10 and 11 were the only ones (so far) to have a Intersected FF.

You forgot Monica and Sheree in AR4 snowshoeing in the Dolomites.

1. 4 winning teams have also placed first on the 1st and penultimate legs - Rob and Brennan (1), Nick and Starr (13), Meghan and Cheyne (15), Dave and Rachel (20). All have won at least 5 legs in their season.

2. Only 3 teams have won 4 consecutive legs - Nick and Starr (13), Meghan and Cheyne (15) and Dave and Rachel (20). The latter two teams scored 4 straight wins in the final 4 legs. If Dave and Rachel had outdone Mark and Bopper in Leg 8, they would have been the first team to win 7 straight legs!

3. In both TAR 1 and 20, the final 3 teams were in the exact same position in the penultimate leg, and the eventual 2nd placer placed 3rd in the first leg, and the eventual 3rd placer came in 2nd in the first leg.

4. The only teams to have placed in the top 4 throughout the entire season (excluding TBC episodes) were Bill and Joe (1), Kris and Jon (6), Eric and Jeremy (9), Margie and Luke (14) and Art and JJ (20).

5. The team with the most top 2 finishes was Eric and Jeremy with 11 top 2 placements (excluding TBC).

6. The only season where no team went from 1st to last, and last to 1st, was TAR 8 Family Edition.

7. The only seasons with just 3 distinct winners of at least 1 leg were TAR 13 and 20.

8. The only teams to have 4 consecutive 2nd place finishes are Eric and Jeremy and Sam and Dan, and both achieved it in the final 4 legs.

9. The last 4 legs of TAR15 was the only period where one team had 4 consecutive wins and the other had 4 consecutive 2nd place finishes.

10. There have been 2 occasions where 2 teams dominated the top 2 for 5 consecutive legs:

Rob and Brennan / Frank and Margarita (1) in the final 5 legs.
BJ and Tyler / Eric and Jeremy (9) at the first 5 pit stops. (excluding TBC)

In both TAR 1 and 20, the winning team was the first team to use the FF.

Art & JJ actually had the first FF this season. It was the one in Italy where one of them had to land a toy helicopter on the other's head.

Colin & Christie won the leg with their taxi drama, though I don't know if it would count as being arrested.

And the first non-all star team.

The Final 3 teams of TAR21 each won the same number of legs as their final placement:

Josh & Brent - 1 (Leg 12)
Jaymes & James - 2 (Legs 8 and 11)
Trey & Lexi - 3 (Legs 6, 7, and 10)

(The same thing happened in TAR18, but with the Final 4 teams.)

Reality crossover teams from CBS shows (Survivor and Big Brother) have never won TAR before, I think. It just came to my mind.

Allison was eliminated 10th in TAR 5.
Rob and Amber twice in TAR 7 and Allstars.
Jeff and Jordan in TAR 16.
Ethan and Jenna in TAR 19.
Brendon and Rachel in TAR 20.

Anyone else I missed?

I got one: Ken and Tina (13) are the only team to cross the finish line without ever having to drive themselves to the pit stop. On the only self-driving leg that season, they won the fast forward, so they were taken by helicopter to the the pit stop.

Seasons 10 and 21 both followed a route of Spain -> France -> New York City for the finish line
They also both eliminated a F/F team in fourth and were won by a M/M team
Both seasons also had their first leg in China...

This fact would definitely go in the "not so interesting" box..

Every leg in TAR21 (excluding finale) had a M/M team in the bottom 2..

Leg 1: Jaymes & James (10th)
Leg 2: Gary & Will (9th)
Leg 3: Gary & Will (8th)
Leg 4: Gary & Will (8th)
Leg 5: Josh & Brent (7th)
Leg 6: Josh & Brent (6th)
Leg 7: Josh & Brent (5th)
Leg 8: Josh & Brent (5th)
Leg 9: Josh & Brent (4th)
Leg 10: Josh & Brent (3rd)
Leg 11: Josh & Brent (3rd)
Leg 12: - [unless you count 2nd place in the finale as Bottom 2 :cmaslol - James & Jaymes]

Lucy & Emilia are really the record-setters of the TAR franchise. These are how many cool and uncool (*looks at last hyphen*) records they set:

- First team to be arrested and have a higher placement :cmaslol
- First team to bypass the halfway point of the race and never drop a Pit Stop placing :cmas9
- First team ever to be saved by the Salvage Pass
- Lowest average placing of anybody placing 5th (bypassing Bill & Cathi even)
- Only team who speaks fluent French and uses it properly in a race country
- Racewise, they have been saved from elimination 6 times to reasons from another team
- The only all-female team to be eliminated in Canada :cmas4

The truth for the Chris & Alex and Tara & Wil foot race, if Tara & Wil's taxi driver never stopped at the wrong place, they would have won by a closer finish in less than 20 seconds.

Kaylani(s19) and Rachel (s20) were origionally going to audition for the race (s19) together. They were good friends but Rachel would be on big brother around the amazing race filming time. So she auditioned with Lisa. And made it!
