The earliest enter-leave-enter chance in TAR1, episode 2 looked a little farfetched even if you put 100 people in that situation, but I would have loved to see at least one team choosing that "Far" safari option.

(RANDOM THOUGHT: If money weren't a factor, I really want to trace the very first and partially second leg personally by actually traveling to Zambia. Victoria Falls (Knife's Edge & Boiling Pot)...  Batoka "George" :lol:... Songwe and Mukuni Village... WHITEWATER RAFTING!... and definitely the safari sightseeing...) :luvu:

In every Race there has been which has included the Express Pass as a prize, only once has it propelled a team into first place at the end of the leg (in CR3). (Hopefully this is broken soon!)

TAR 17 - Jill and Thomas (5th)
TAR 18 - Gary and Mallory (2nd)
TAR 19 - Ernie and Cindy (2nd)
TAR 20 - Rachel and Dave (6th)
TAR 21 - Natalie and Nadiya (3rd)
TARAU 1 - Sam and Renae (8th)
CR3 - Liu Weiwei and Lei Sheng (1st)
TARLA 3 - Felipe and Alejandro (5th)
TARLA 4 - Ana Paula and Renata (4th)
TAR: Norway - Cathrine and Michelle (3rd)
Philippines - Marc and Kat (4th)
Vietnam - Than Thuy and Minh Thoa (10th)

Hopefully I haven't missed any Races out compiling this!

Every time the race goes to Amsterdam the first clue is found on a bridge.

In season 20, the all-female teams have never placed higher than 4th. :o

In all other seasons, even with all-female teams getting eliminated at 9th and 10th place, the all-female teams have placed 3rd place or better. :crazy:

Here is a really odd one:
The last time teams had to travel by plane on the 5th leg was Season 15. Seasons 16-21 had no flying on the 5th leg.
16: bus transported them to France for start of leg
17: drove over border into Norway
18: took train back to Kunming
19: took bus to Bangkok
20: took train to Austria, drove over border to Germany
21: Stayed in Bangladesh
Is that an odd pattern or what

The fourth leg is usually a TBC or NEL and thus on several accounts they stayed at the same place to complete the leg. This didn't happen in TAR 21 though. But considering they are trying to save costs by having two legs in the same country, it sure didn't occur that 5th leh was always non-flight for so many seasons in a row already! :ascared

Thanks for the interesting stats!!

For the 2nd time ever in TARUS,the teams that finished on top 3 positions on leg 2 were the same as leg 1.
That season was 10. In both seasons,one of the teams was a M/M,the other was a father/children team and the third team was a dating couple.

In S10,the M/M won the first leg and finished 2nd on leg 2. In S22,the M/M finished 2nd on leg 1 and won the second leg.

In S10,the father/children team finished 2nd on leg 1 and 3rd on leg 2. In S22,the father/children team finished 3rd on leg 1 and 2nd on leg 2.

In S10,the dating couple finished 3rd on leg 1 and won the second leg. In S22,the dating couple won the first leg and finished 3rd in leg 2.

A not so interesting one :

In all history of TAR US , we had 221 legs where a DETOUR AND A ROADBLOCK appeared

124 had the Detour before the Roadblock
97 had the Roadblock before the Detour


Up till TAR4 Leg 4, it was strictly Detour first, Roadblock second.
