My first season was 4, AXN was broadcasting a marathon but I missed a couple of episodes. My first complete season was 5.
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

Season 7, out of nowhere I was like "Wait!, That's Santiago!" And then I look up the tv guide to know what I was watching, when could I watch it again and then I watched the Finale (I may have skip a few episodes) and found myself happy about Uchenna&Joyce winning, it was incredible... But the most memorable for me back in the day wathing AXN Latinoamerica was Season 8, because this was the moment I realize I really like traveling with my family and we were in this low budget thing where we couldn't really go anywhere after going to the south of Chile when I was 5 or something, and I remember missing that so The Amazing Race brought back that feeling of discovery :D

 :cmas22  Started watching with the last few episodes of TAR2, but TAR 3 was my first full season.  Started "spoiling" the show in various online forums with TAR4.   ....the good old days!

My first was season 22, so I'm kind of a newbie, lol. But I saw Joey on the TV and I was like "shoot, he's fine!" and that kind of led me to watch more and soon develop an addiction to the show! Haha. I really want to see some past seasons, though, especially the family edition since everyone hated that one :p

It was Saturday Night in April 2009 I decided to stay in and not go out.

I was flicking through the channels round 1 AM and came across something called "The Amazing Race", having a huge obsession with anything to do with Racing I decided to watch it.

As I live in Ireland, it was a re-run of Leg 1 Season 9. I missed the first 15 / 20 mins so teams were on their way to the airport, and I thought this was the greatest thing I'd ever seen!  :cmaslol

First thing the next morning I went onto Wikipedia to look it up and discovered that Season 14 was in the middle of airing, so I went back and tried to find the older seasons online, and watched them all, (except for season 8, which I still haven't seen), and I've stayed up to date with every season since!  :cmas22

Because of this, Season 9 is one of my favourite seasons, even though its far from the most exciting due to it basically being a 2 team race between the Hippies and Eric & Jeremy.

Was it the original airing of the season you seen? Or a re-run?

I think I remember seeing an episode of TAR years ago, before I even seen Season 9, but hadn't a clue what it was about.  :cmaslol

I have watched almost every reality tv show like: Big Brother, America's Next Top Model, Top Chef, The X Factor etc. But one they my mom was watching CBS and I saw a preview of The Amazing Race S20 and I thought Brendon was cute so I watched the 1st episode and felt in love with the show.

And become a fan

And Jamie & Cara are still one of my favorite team

I saw a few episodes here and there of family edition and all stars before really getting into season 10 (Australian broadcast logic) and then I've watched since season 12

I got into it after I was referred by a friend back in school

My first season was season 3 and the only people I ended up paying attention to was Phil and the winning team; especially Flo.

Season 20 was my first season. I then started rewatching previous seasons online in reverse order.

My first season was TAR 16, specifically the Singapore leg. I was immediately hooked and began to watch reruns (sadly, I got bored towards the middle of TAR 23 and still haven't seen any leg in that season past the 1st Abu Dhabi leg).

My first episode was the Sri Lanka one in TAR6, which started out with a dedication to the tsumani victims. Originally, I was hoping that all the previous seasons would come out on DVD, which never really happened.

First full season was TAR7, so I have a bit of a soft spot for this season. Afterwards, I would drop and come back to this show, thus not following TAR13-15 on CBS. But luckily, someone had the episodes on YouTube (which has since, been taken down).

When the 1st All-Stars rolled around, I would have to resort to bootlegs to watching the earlier seasons, though that would have not mattered for TAR4 and TAR6.

Not quite up the standards of a true TARfly.

My first watched episode was season 1, leg 2.  But I did catch a rebroadcast of leg 1 later that week.
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

The first whole season I watched was Season 10, but the first leg was the Thailand leg in season 9. My first memory from the series was when I saw Garrett and Jessica in season 15 racing through Vietnam. But at that point I thought teams RAN around the world on foot, so I thought that it would be the most boring thing ever. But when I watched it, I was hooked for life  :hrt:
