In Season 21, the team who placed 2nd in the first leg were eventually the 2nd team to be eliminated, the team who placed 3rd in the first leg were eventually the 3rd team to eliminated. That's not all - the team who placed 2nd-to-last in the first leg placed 2nd overall, and the team who placed 3rd-to-last in the first leg placed 3rd overall. :lol:

There have been 65 NEL's through the past 21 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.
2 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining (17, 18).
4 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining (6, 16, 19, 20).
8 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining (5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21).
11 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining (1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21).
14 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).
17 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).
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 2 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining, 2/2 were survived.
Out of the 4 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining, 2/4 were survived (16, 20).
Out of the 8 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining, 6/7 were survived (all except 14).
Out of the 11 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining, 6/11 were survived (2, 6, 8, 13, 16, 18).
Out of the 14 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 5 teams remaining, 8/14 were survived (2, 3[x2], 4, 5[x2], 8, 9)
-Interestingly, no team has survived a 5th place NEL since Season 9's BJ & Tyler.
Out of the 17 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining, 11/17 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).

There has never been a non-elimination leg at a pit stop in South America.

Malawi : 1
Belguim : 1
Tanzania : 1
Bangladesh : 1
Spain : 1
Botswana : 1

For this listing to have any context, we'd need the number of total legs in each of those countries as well.
One would expect that those countries that have been most frequently visited would have the most NELs.
While it may not always be the case, as a rule of thumb, if there are two legs in a country or city, then one of them is often a NEL. What would also be interesting to see is how many times the NEL was the first of two legs, or the second.

Add the same for Argentina's double legs in TAR5 and TAR7.

Both seasons the race went to Rio de Janeiro (seasons 2 and 18), the race also went to Sydney, and vice versa.

There are quite a few in the early seasons, TAR1 France, TAR2 Brazil, etc.

The only teams to fall from first to last after winning consecutive legs and get eliminated are Rob & Amber and Dave & Connor.

Could people *not* post about the current season in the discussion forum? You've just spoiled what sounds like a major race moment for me so thanks a lot...

IF anyone ever sees a true spoiler in the discussion threads please use the "report to moderator" button immediately so one of the mods can take care of it asap. And by the same token PLEASE be conscious where you are posting...we take the NO SPOILERS rule seriously.

HOWEVER, once something has appeared in the media (ie the show has aired, or a preview is discussed in a magazine) it IS NO LONGER A SPOILER.

I could fill this thread to the brim. I am so obsessed with TAR that I do crazy stuff like collecting data and records all the time. You ask, and I probably have it.

For Example: Since you're all talking about Non-Elimination legs, look what I made:



The Dark blue represents a Non-Elimination leg, while the light blue means only a foreign edition of the race has had a non-elimination leg there.

I really don't feel like checking, but i believe this season has the most teams in the final 5 with no first place finishes. (3: Joey/Meghan, Caroline/Jennifer, Mona/Beth) I'll check later though.

TAR 13 had 3 of the final 5 that had not yet won a leg (Dandrew, Toni/Dallas, Terence/Sarah) This is the only other occurance besides this season.

There have been 68 NEL's through the past 22 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).
4 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining (6, 16, 19, 20).
9 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining (5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22).
11 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining (1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21).
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).
17 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).
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 4 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining, 2/4 were survived (16, 20).
Out of the 9 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining, 7/8 were survived (all except 14).
Out of the 11 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining, 6/11 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.
Mona & Beth - first team since BJ & Tyler to survive a 5th place NEL.
Out of the 17 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining, 11/17 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).

-Updated.
-Mona & Beth: second F/F team to survive a U-Turn (after Brook & Claire)
                        first team to complete a Speed Bump AND U-Turn in the same leg and still survive
-Joey & Meghan: first team to be U-Turned twice (as mentioned in the other threads)
-The only times when four teams were involved in a Double U-Turn (users + victims) were TAR 17 (its inaugural season) and TAR 22.

It would have been very interesting if Mona & Beth were U-Turned in Vietnam as the other teams had planned to... they would have been the first team to survive two U-Turns! :o

Territory works here too. A country is usually though as a sovereign entity, something the French Polynesian Islands are not.
