Brendon and Rachel are currently the only team to be mentioned in Finale Recap segment twice in the career, by making into final 3 twice

Caroline and Jennifer also did so, only because the first season they were on the Finale was shown together with the penultimate episode, leading to a Final 4 finale recap

Does Oswald & Danny, Flight Time & Big Easy, and Kisha & Jen count? I can't remember.

How about Eric (of Eric & Jeremy) he was the first person to run the race twice and not get eliminated.

That's been told here.

I'm talking about what cbacbacba1 said about teams being mentioned in the finale recap.

S14 and S15 both have a single episode for finale, so neither of those two teams are mentioned in finale recap.

Oswald and Danny have never been mentioned in finale recap.

I am saying a team, so I didn't count Eric. But surely he is the first one to have this entitlement.

Eric is the only Racer ever to date to win twice. Recap or no Recap.

Biggest Improvement for Traditional NELs (with a SPEED BUMP - so only accounting for Season 12 onward)*
11th to 7th (Maria & Tiffany; Bill & Cathi)
9th to 3rd (Chris & Bret)
8th to 6th (Bopper & Mark; Misti & Jim)
7th to 2nd (Caroline & Jennifer)
6th to 1st (Jet & Cord)
5th to 3rd (Tara & Joey)
4th to 1st (Brooke & Robbie; Evan & Henry)

*mainly because I don't feel like checking the rest of the seasons lol.

Biggest Improvement for KOR Legs (only accounting for Season 18 onward)
11th to 3rd (Jet & Cord)
9th to 5th (Kent & Vyxsin)
8th to 4th (Nicky & Kim)
7th to 4th (Liz & Michael)
5th to 2nd (Kristi & Jen)*
4th to 1st (Amy & Maya)

*this is if you count Kristi & Jen checking in 5th as opposed to 3rd. Otherwise, the "record" would go to Bill & Cathi but they still came in 5th the next leg.

I believe Colin and Christie have the record for most consecutive legs finishing in the top 4, at 15 legs for now (TAR5 Leg 3 to TAR31 Leg 4)

The current record for all individual racers is Eric at 17 legs (all 13 legs of TAR9 and the first 4 legs of TAR11). Or 16 legs if you count the uber leg in TAR 9.

Biggest improvement I think pre-season 12 is TAR10 David & Mary where they went from 7th to 1st, but that was with their petroleum fire Fast Forward. Without the FF, I think it's Chris & Alex from TAR2 with their 6th to 2nd jump.

Brendon & Rachel made the F3 twice and never had to deal with a final memory challenge.

17 consecutive legs now for Colin and Christie! They now have the record!  :conf:

(Although I am slightly disappointed that they only have 1 first place as of Leg 6. In TAR5, they already had won 3 legs.)


Has any team come in first place in the same city/country in two different seasons. Colin and Christie were 1st back in TAR5 in Dubai but did not repeat the feat in TAR31.

Not sure about city, but Becca and Floyd were first during their first time in Vietnam (Hanoi leg) and first during the first Ho Chi Minh leg

Alon & Oren is the only team who lost all face-off tasks again 4 other teams but still win a leg (leg 8 HMLM 2)
Face-off tasks in USA were good but it served for eliminating anyone is horrific

Don't remind me of that incredibly stupid idea of a Face Off. What the hell were the producers thinking with that one?

Rob & Amber have placed first in Chile in both of their seasons. Jet & Cord have placed first in China in all three of their seasons. And like nrh2110 said, Becca & Floyd have place first in Vietnam in both of their seasons. Nobody has placed first in the same city though.

Out of all the three-timers, (Jet & Cord, Flight Time & Big Easy, Margie & Luke, Mallory Ervin, Rachel Reilly, Leo & Jamal), Rachel Reilly is the only three-timer who has never heard Phil say "You're still racing!"

Rachel ( :cheer: ) will surpass the cowboys (:groan:) and Flight Time/Big Easy  (:groan:) for most legs raced next week. But I suspect another team will have the record later on. I wonder whether TAR will invite a team that has been in the final 3 twice to return for a third time.



Do you all also keep track of the following records/acheivements? Let me know if you have the answers.

1. Most legs won (career)
Currently Colin and Christie have won 7 legs over two seasons, which tie them with Jet and Cord (over 3 seasons), Meghan and Cheynne and Starr. Do Rachel and Dave have the record with 8?

2. Most legs in the top 3 (career)
3. Most consecutive legs in the top 3 (career)

Dave and Connor have 8 in a career too. Tyler & Korey just got their 7th leg win too.

2. Most legs in the top 3 (career)
Cowboys (20), Colin & Christie may surpress them with 16 until now

3. Most consecutive legs in the top 3 (career)
Kristi & Jen for 11 legs (except the Partner swap leg)

Thanks for this. I am praying that Colin and Christie get the first and second record by the end of the season. I am quite confident that they will finish in the top 3 over the next 5 legs and get the magic 21. Of the four remaining full TAR teams, they are the only ones with 1 win.

They currently have the record for most consecutive legs in the top 4 (18 legs), but it just doesn't sound as good as placing all 18 legs in the top 3.
