A piece of info that isn't really exciting, but in TAR7 all the legs that were multiples of 3 (every 3rd leg) did not have a prize for the first placers. And interestingly, all the legs that Rob and Amber came in first all had accompanying prizes.

Bit of a Random Fact that I thought of there:

Every season of the US Version has had at least one M/F team in the Final 3, (As of Season 23)
But has NEVER had a Final 3 that consists of 2 M/M Teams, and 1 F/F Team.

I find this funny as both Australian Seasons, and the Canadian Season has had a Final 3 Combination of 2 M/M & 1 F/F,
and neither of these seasons have ever had a M/F Team in the Final 3.  :cmas10 :cmaslol

..... And to all a Good Day! .....

If Dave/Connor didn't withdraw from the race of leg 5, I thought F3 in TAR 22 would consist 2 M/M (hockey bros and father/son cancer survivors) & F/F (Roller Moms)

I'm surprised that none of the English speaking versions of TAR has had an all-male or all-female final 3. I keep thinking, it has to happen at some point, and came close a few times.

in TAR 20 if Rachel completed leg 3 RB and Dave completed leg 4's ones, I thought Army Couple along with Art & JJ would be two teams never finish outside top 4

Eric & Jeremy in Season 9 and Kris & Jon is Season 6 (They did come 5th in the first half of a Double Length Leg on Leg 6, but I wouldn't count that)
..... And to all a Good Day! .....

There was a post stating if you finish 1st in Indonesia will not win the race. ???
Jason & Amy already won their first leg in Indonesia in Leg 10 and win the race.
Our team is not our feminine is not my care and I only care about female team to win or final 3!

It was probably posted before TAR23 aired. :) If you would have quoted the post, we could see the timestamp on it.

-Jet & Cord are the first M/M team to come in 1st and win the Express Pass[es].
-They are also the first M/M team to win the first leg since Tyler & James in TAR10.

There have been 65 71 NEL's through the past 23 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).
5 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining (6, 16, 19, 20, 23).
9 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining (5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22).
12 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining (1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23).
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).
18 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, 23).
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 5 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining, 3/5 were survived (16, 20, 24).
Out of the 8 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining, 8/9 were survived (all except 14).
Out of the 12 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining, 6/12 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.
Out of the 18 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining, 11/18 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).

-Beth & Mona are the first team since Season 9's BJ & Tyler to survive a 5th-place NEL.

Biggest Improvement from a NEL/KOR (Last place):
11th to 3rd: Jet & Cord (TAR18)
9th to 4th: Michael & Kevin (TAR17)
8th to 4th: Nicky & Kim (TAR23)
7th to 2nd: Caroline & Jennifer (TAR24)
6th to 1st: Jet & Cord (TAR16)
5th to 1st: John Vito & Jill (TAR3)
4th to 1st: David & Jeff (TAR4), BJ & Tyler (TAR9)
3rd to 1st: Chris & Alex, Flo & Zach, Uchenna & Joyce

The teams in bold had to complete a Speed Bump, so kudos to them!

Caroline & Jennifer are at this point tied with Kent & Vyxsin for the most legs raced without a first place finish
It's Clobbering Time!
