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.

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)

Because US version has fewer performance ARI tasks than international counterparts, some ARI tasks can't be skipped by using EP such as collecting coins in TAR 23 leg 4

True. A lot more ARI's that are actually full-blown tasks.

seasons with 3 F/F teams in top 5
Canada 4, Asia 2 & 5, Israel 3
48 consecutive legs in US version without F/F teams win, It would be 55 if F4 finale twist wasn't introduced in TAR 25

Asia 5 was great for the female teams. Only one guy in the top 4.

TAR Asia and TAR Israel usually have strong female teams, they usually cast more F/F teams than M/M teams, both versions are produced by ActiveTV (except TAR Asia 5)

Agreed TAR Asia & TAR Israel have casted stronger F/F teams, whether it be Beauty Queens, Mother & Daughter, Friends both aged 45, Sisters, Cousins they nailed it.

Except premiere and finale, Israeli legs' structure were far longer and more tasks than other versions, thus the losers of face off task(s) have a chance to catch up other teams, even strong team like Bar & Inna and Alan & Oren already lost a the face-off

Yeah, Israel has ridiculously long legs. Hence most episodes being split into 3 parts over the course of the week.

TAR Israel 5 only has 5 detours but all of them were covered by Most vote U-turn, and this season also has 5 Face-Off and the final losing team were totally different
Amit & Raz was the best father/son winner ever, they completed far more tasks than Tim & Tim and Dave & Connor, except prelims and finale, each legs in Israel contains about 10 and more tasks!
