Is Leg 7 of Season 9 the only leg where the leg placements are the reverse of the team's final placements (B.J. & Tyler were 5th, ended up 1st; Eric & Jeremy were 4th, ended up 2nd; Ray & Yolanda were 3rd, and ended up 3rd; Joseph & Monica were 2nd, ended up 4th; Fran & Berry were 1st, ended up 5th)

To answer my own post, the penultimate legs of TAR 7 & 25 are the only other legs to have this distinction.

TAR 7 Leg 11 (12 if the double leg counts as two):
Uchenna & Joyce were 3rd and last on the leg, ended up 1st
Rob & Amber were 2nd on the leg, ended up 2nd
Ron & Kelly were 1st on the leg, ended up 3rd.

TAR 25 Leg 11:
Amy & Maya were 4th and last on the leg, ended up 1st
Misti & Jim were 3rd on the leg, ended up 2nd
Adam & Bethany were 2nd on the leg, ended up 3rd
Brooke & Robbie were 1st on the leg, ended up 4th (and eliminated mid-way through the final leg)

TAR 16 had it happen from leg 7 to 8 as well :angel.

That's a result flip between consecutive legs, but I was looking at result flips from one leg to the final results.

Could be total bogus due to having no time to go and research  :lol:  but I think TARC 4 is the first Season not to have M/F Dating Team?  With TARC 5 being the second?  Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong?  ???

The Amazing Race Norge 2 (Norwegian version) also did not have a dating team. :P
And it doesn't look like there was a dating team on the third & fourth seasons of the Israeli version.

Aahh Ha! I knew I'd be caught out.  :lol:  Can we just consider the English speaking versions then?  :funny:

Just like Tyler curse, we have Brittany curse since two contestants named Brittany all finish in 9th. (21 and 28)

And also France joins the elite club of countries that are visited for three consecutive seasons after India (12, 13, 14), China (16, 17, 18), Indonesia (21, 22, 23), aside from USA, of course.
We also have Kristen EP curse, two teams with Kristen never used EP, Kristen & Daren eliminated with EP in their hand, while Kristen & Steph was too strong to use EP

Randomly looking through results of different Seasons, and I think TAR Asia 5 is the only Season where none of the Final 3 won more than 1 Leg.  :o

It occured because the Yield and U-turn in penultive leg, if Leg 9 were designed normally, Yvonne & Chloe would be booted due to Chloe's injury leaving F3 with Parul & Maggie, Trez & Lou, Eric & Rona

Germany is the most-visited country that has never hosted a U-Turn, with 11 visits. South Korea and Malaysia are in second place with 8 visits.

Norway is the most-visited country with no Non-Elimination legs, with 6 visits (No-rest doesn't count)
