Yeah, I'm realizing now that's a minor issue with our Wiki. When pages are newly added to a category, it takes a long while for them to actually show up on the category's page. I was looking at the category:Countries page for quick reference, and Kyrgyzstan and Bahrain are the two newest additions, so I missed them.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

Also, shouldn't Peru be dark blue since it was visited in both TARUS and TARLA.

The Amazing Race Franchise now has two national Mr. World titleholders!

First is Jinder Atwal of The Amazing Race Canada's Sukhi & Jinder who won Mr. World Canada in 2016
And now, Jody "JB" Saliba of The Amazing Race Philippines' AJ & Jody was just won Mr. World Philippines 2018!

Also interesting, both of them competed on the second season of their respective country's TAR franchise! Congrats! And best of luck to JB!

Yes. It is the male equivalent for beauty pageants.

Hamerotz LaMillion 5 might be the season with most route info tasks, this season only had 4 roadblocks, 5 detours and 5 face-offs, season 4 had more detours and more roadblock.
Season with most tasks and longest legs for other versions rather than Israel.
Anyone can could the number of route info tasks for all seasons of all versions

Have you seen Season 6? That one only had 6 Roadblocks, 2 Detours and 5 Face-Offs. Plus I think that one in general had more ARI tasks than season 5.

Jaymes & James and Trey & Lexi checked into the Pit Stop one right after the other in 11 out of 12 legs.

Bjørn, a contestant on TAR Norway 1, is the oldest contestant on the Race to participate in a skydive, at the age of 64.

30 seasons into the US version and I still don't think there's ever been a team that placed in the Top 3 every leg. Unless you count Kristi & Jen, which I don't. The 7th leg technically put them in a last-place tie with Jody.

That feat has been accomplished at least twice on foreign versions - Alon & Oren on Israel 2 (although they didn't make Top 3 during that elimination point that took out Gadi & Alona), and Rovilson & Marc from Asia 2.

Had they not swapped partners, they possibly could make it.
Come on watch my race (Lemontail's The Amazing Race 1) currently going on here!
