Only ones I can think of off-hand are Canadian racers.

-Alain Chanoine from Season 2 landed his first Hollywood role last year playing Incubus in Suicide Squad.
-Lesbian couple Steph LeClair and Kristen McKenzie from Season 4 started a YouTube channel that in just over a year has accumulated 54,000 subscribers.

Stassi Schroeder was on the Bravo show Vanderpump Rules post TAR:FE.

Jamie was part of Playboy after her appearance on TAR 14.

Not sure if this completely counts but Amy Purdy went on to become a paralympian and was on Dancing with the Stars after TAR 21 (she did appear in a movie in 2005, but it was only shown in film festivals not in the cinema).

To add on with TAR Australia:

Nathan competed on Celebrity Apprentice Australia after TARAu 1.

Mel became a famous radio host after TARAu 1, which unfortunately led to the infamous prank call that led to the suicide of Kate Middleton's nurse.

I've noticed that some reality competitions have produced successful celebrity figures such as American Idol, introducing Kelly Clarkson, Adam Lambert and Carrie Underwood to the world; Survivor, turning contestant Elisabeth Hasselback into a talk show hostess; and American Ninja Warrior, providing Jessie Graff the spotlight to become the "new Jackie Chan" with an incredible fan-base. Outside of CBS-Amazing Race territory, I've only immediately recognized Canaan Smith from season 15 who has grown his fame substantially by releasing a hit country single and discovered Blake from season 2 becoming the founder of TOMS shoes.

Are there any other media newcomers who went onto do and become bigger public figures? Those already well-known in their fields and media moments (Adam & Bethany, Josh & Brent, Caite Upton, Survivor/BB crossovers, etc.) don't count.
It felt like a poorly manufactured "TWIST!!11!!1!" to me at first, but I liked how it played out. Poor Cole being blamed for everything by Ben. :lol:
I can't say I'm sad Desi went home, it's actually that I'm sad she was so underedited. I loved her Ponderosa, she's all of smart, athletic, pretty, but I guess they have to make choices of who not to give an edit, if they have no overall impact on the season. And Desi didn't have any. :/
After the last episode, I'm 100% confident prediction-wise that Chrissy is a F3 loser.
If you read some of Desi's interviews, it's pretty clear that Chrissy was generally (strongly) disliked by the cast. I just can't see her getting the votes at FTC.
However, she's got great gameplay, and I can see her making the FTC. With her edit, it would be a a great shock win for someone else.

I still think Lauren might win lmao.
Ben/Ryan have had way too good edits throughout the season. Not positive-good, but visibility-good. One of them will either be a shock boot by an idol/blindside, or a F4 loser.
I am shocked they didn't boot Joe since he seemed to be way more than a threat than Desi. Also Joe annoyed me and I wanted him gone.

Also, I really didn't understand why there was such an early jump to want to split votes when you need a 2/3 majority to do that and heroes + hustlers didn't have 2/3 majority. (Disregarding Lauren's advantage) If all 4 healers voted together it would be 4-4-3 and one idol would send home a hero or hustler, it would make no difference than a 7-4 vote.

I also found it odd that they would give a very direct clue as to where to idol was that would be seen by multiple people, but I did like the twist of private family style reward. That was refreshing.
A strong edit with a case to win and currently holds the position of power:
Chrissy - negative edit
Ryan - still pretty much a Todd/Cochran edit
Ben (moved up) - negative edit
Lauren (moved up) - positive edit

Relatively strong edit (at least there's a story):
Devon (moved up)

Floating as of now BUT there may be a back story:

Completely hopeless (if they pull a win my jaw will drop) :funny: :funny::

F3 Contenders: Ryan, Chrissy, Ben/Devon
My Prediction Boot for next week: Joe
