The Most Dangerous Moments in The Amazing Race
« on: March 16, 2014, 09:28:43 AM »
I'm not too sure if there's already a thread for this?  ???
But after watching last weeks episode (TAR 24 Leg 3) and seen how potentially dangerous the rafting challenge was, I began to think of other dangerous tasks or moments in TAR.

So my question, what do you think are the most dangerous moments in TAR? This can be for any version and not just the US.

For me, I would have to say Brian & Greg crashing their vehicle in Season 7 was pretty chaotic, especially as the camera man could have been fatally injured.
And of course, the famous Watermelon in Season 17. :lol:

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

Some water challenges? IDK. TAR 6 FF was lame, but the suit to go underwater was sooo heavy and it could lead to trouble.

The paddling things in wild rivers also excite me, as they show contestants at risk. I think the Race is meant to have such tasks
Sam's AR10: Sarah & Shaleen F04 Leg 10 (4,352,785 IDR)
TAR Greece: Ήβη & Ελευθερία F15 Leg 02 (Kos Town-418€)
Joab TAR24: David (Veteran) F15 Leg 07 (The Bottomgod)

Every skydiving challenge in TAR. It doesn't look dangerous at all on TV but always it's the one challenge which has a really high possibility of going wrong.

The "Tunnel" Detour in TAR7, on Leg 5 (Argentina --> South Africa), where teams had to search for a clue in cavernous pitch darkness. It's among the most dangerous tasks ever aired. Remember, Gretchen had to get stitches after injuring herself in there. :o

As for dangerous moments, it's a tie between Brian & Greg's SUV rollover and the Weavers losing control of their Amish Buggy in the first Leg. TAR5's starting line trample is a critical mention as well.

Actually one that comes to mind was Leg 11 of The Amazing Race Latin America 3

In Salvador, Brazil, one of the Detour choices involved teams holding coconuts with their bare hands and using a huge knife with their other hand to break the coconuts open and empty the juices inside.

Only one team took this choice (Rick & Kathy), but every time Rick swung the knife I winced and shivered. All it would have taken was a tiny little miscalculation, and Rick would have lost a finger.

I honestly couldn't believe the lack of safety.

Doesn't that happen on Survivor a lot though?

TAR3 had Ken & Gerard almost getting hit by a trolley, and Andre & Damon getting detained in Morocco.

TAR Brazil had a team robbed at gunpoint, so either that or Brian & Greg's crash in TAR7 was probably the most dangerous moment.

How about in TAR 13 Bolivia Leg where one of Kelly & Christie lost control of her wood bike and crashed into the sidewalk, almost hitting a local bystander?

Even in aracee around the U.S., there are very surprising potential dangers.
