Becca & Floyd are the third team to let their Express Pass expire. The first were Lincoln & Tien Dat from TAR Vietnam 5, and then Steph & Kristen were second only a couple of weeks later. Both teams were simply too strong and never needed to use it.

Would we say that Becca and Floyd are strong?

Too early to say.

Honestly, why set an expiry at leg 5? That's too early...

Then again, better than TAR Australia 3 where I think it expired at leg 4...

Yes, that's right. John and Murray gave it to Carla and Hereni at the end of Leg 3 and then the Mums use it at the Roadblock in Leg 4

Repost for Pi:

Teams have traveled 12,112 miles this season through Leg 3. Thatís the largest number of miles teams have traveled in the first three legs of a season since S18 (12,706).

Fixed.

I think you could include 2 and 13 as well?

Also I'm there's a season that disproves this but leg 5 of TAR 29 is the first to have a FF on a keep racing leg.

Liz & Mike, iinm, arrived at the pit stop in last place for 4 times, the most any team in TAR US (not sure with int'l) has ever done.
1st time: Leg 1, Panama; saved by Kevin & Jenn's 2-hour penalty
2nd time: Leg 5, Norway; keep on racing
3rd time: Leg 7, Italy 2; non-elimination with speedbump next leg
4th time: Leg 8, Greece; eliminated

Oh also, the teams who used the U-turn on Leg 6 of TAR29 were the teams who received the U-turn on the same season's Leg 8.
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.

Both Amazing Race 29 and Amazing Race Canada 4 visited Vietnam, both were filmed in 2016 and both seasons had at least 1 contestant that collapsed due to the heat, Floyd (of Becca & Floyd) and Tanya (of Anne & Tanya) respectively.

IRCC, Becca and Floyd are the third team ever to go worst to first and then first to worst right at the next leg

The first is John Vito and Jill (s3 leg 8-9-10)
and the second one is David & Mary (s10 leg 5-6-7)

So far, 3 teams in Season 29 did not complete all tasks in their respective elimination legs.

Kevin & Jenn - did not properly complete the Detour
Shamir & Sara - did not complete the Roadblock
Becca & Floyd - did not complete the Route Info task

I don't know if that's the most times that's happened in one season--let me know!

Also, Phil had to eliminate a team on the Race course twice in Season 29.  Is that the first time that's happened?

The US Version has casted 2 Indian-American teams, Vipul & Arti (S.10) and Hoskote & Naina (S.23). Coincidentally both came in 11th Place.

I may be wrong, as I haven't researched this  :lol:  But after last nights episode, S29 Leg 2, a new record has been broken.

Mike & Liz made the biggest improvement in placements over one Leg.  Leg 1 - 10th, Leg 2 - 1st.  This gives them a 9 Team jump.  :hoot:

They beat the old record, held by Justin & Diana in S27, who had an 8 Team jump: Leg 1 - 9th, Leg 2 - 1st.

They are also the first ever team to arrive 11th on the 1st leg (checking in at 10th) then finish 1st on the following leg.

Wrong on both accounts, unless you don't count Fast Forward runs. Derek & Drew were 11th on the first leg in season 3 (12 teams that season, so they survived), they did the Fast Forward on the second leg and ended up in 1st. They jumped 10 teams.

∆∆ if the FF was included, then Derek and Drew would still holf the record, but what make special from Mike and Liz was they difn't need FF to win the leg, altough, all teams had bunched up and got the same flight to Sao Paolo

Meanwhile, bike basket in Ninh Binh (switchback of S3) tied with Bungee jumping at Batoka River (switchback of S1) in S27 as the longest Siwtchback that was done after seasons... (both was done after 26 seasons), but if you count the leg, Batoka River may still stand the record... (Batoka was visited at very first leg, while the Bike basket was done on 11 th leg )

Allan Wu did it 2 times in the amazing race asia 2 (Brett & Kinaryosih and Sophia & Aurelia in leg 3 and 4 in new zealand)

Also about switchback, the most recent seasons that revisited in respective season was S14 (carryinh cheese ARI in Switzerland) that was revisited in S22 ( altough in that season (S22), teams carried the cheese on Snowy hill instead on grassy hill)... Also this was the shortest seasons to be done in particular season ( 6 seasons)

I do not count the FF for this as any team can go from Worst to First using that, and it's not really a test of Race skill to achieve such a feat by using a FF.

∆∆ if the FF was included, then Derek and Drew would still holf the record, but what make special from Mike and Liz was they difn't need FF to win the leg, altough, all teams had bunched up and got the same flight to Sao Paolo

If your talking about S29, then the teams weren't all bunched on the same flight - There were 6 different flights to Sao Paulo.

So THAT'S where Hoskote was from! I think he was South American...

So far (exclude s29) there's no season that have 2 of final 3 teams yet win the leg before the finale... (CMIIW or if missed one or some)

So based that fact... the teams that win the leg before the finale have 66.67% while the rest have 33.33% chance to get into final leg... so hypothetically if you race and win a leg, your probability to get into final leg will high rather you never win any leg

 (let's say it's just a probability based on this phenomenon, sure there are many factor that will approve or deny this hypothesis; also i counted this probability based on 3 teams that get into the final on every season, not all the teams, and per season, but if i miss the fact or my hypothesis is wrong, your arguments are welcomed)

Sorry, I don't understand this. I don't mean to insult your English, I would just like to know what is this fact/record you are talking about. ;)

Becca & Floyd did not go worst to first? ???
They checked in 5th out of 6 teams in leg 8.

They LEFT in worst.
Just compare their last 3 placements with JVJ and DaveMary, you'll see what I mean. :P

Marionete, they are referring to the number of seasons between the original task and the Switchback task. Cheese hill in 14 was revisited in 22, and that's a difference of only 8 seasons. Meanwhile, going to Batoka Gorge in 1, and then revisited in 27, that's a difference of 26 seasons. Much larger.
