Joey & Meghan: first team to be U-Turned twice
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

TAR 5 is the only season where the eliminated teams did not begin the leg in last place in their respective elimination legs.

I am glad to say that TAR 22 has pulled this off!

Danielle was the first and only contestant to be Yielded three times, when ironically, she's actually not that strong.
Dustin & Kandice was the first and only team to use the Yield twice. (not mentioning the Yield that they 'bought')
TAR Canada: Vanessa & Celina
TAR 23: Tim & Marie, Nicky & Kim, Tim & Danny

She's really pissed that we're asking her because she has BUSINESS to do.

Teams that eventually won the race finished the first leg in :

1st : (Rob & Brennan , Tyler & James , Nick & Starr , Meghan & Cheyne ,  Ernie & Cindy , Rachel & Dave)
2nd : (Flo & Zach , BJ & Tyler , Tammy & Victor , Nat & Kat , Bates & Anthony)
3rd : (TK & Rachel , Kisha & Jen)
4th : (Freddy & Kendra , Eric & Danielle)
6th : (Chris & Alex)
7th : (Josh & Brent)
8th : (Chip & Kim , Uchenna & Joyce , Dan & Jordan)
9th : (Reichen & Chip , Linz Family)

So we also have a 5th/10th curse. None of the teams that finished 5th or 10th on the first leg won the race!  :o

Updating the list on the first post:

Abbie & Ryan also has the record of "most consecutive leg placements without improving" at 7: 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 4th, 4th, and 5th.

I would also consider S22 with one of the "most unpredicatable Races", with Pam & Winnie, Dave & Connor, and Jessica & John having top average placements while being eliminated at 7th, 8th, and 9th place.

For all versions, if you finish 1st in Indonesia you will not win.

Kisha & Jen were not underdogs. Remember they made final 4 in their original season, and could have made it in the final 3 if not for ahem... unforeseen circumstances. They were competent overall, in Season 18, they only had two legs in the bottom (legs 6 and 8) and beat out teams like Zev & Justin, Jet & Cord, Ronald & Chris and Margie & Luke who were good teams.
