The positions where teams finished in TAR 9's Oman leg was an exact mirror of TAR 9's final placements.

BJ & Tyler were 5th (and last, but saved by NEL), and ended up winning the race.
Eric & Jeremy were 4th, and ended up 2nd in the race.
Ray & Yolanda were 3rd, and ended up 3rd in the race.
Joseph & Monica were 2nd, and ended up in 4th place.
Fran & Barry won the leg, and then were eliminated in the next leg in 5th place.

In other words,

5th->1st
4th->2nd
3rd->3rd
2nd->4th
1st->5th

I realized that in TAR 11, none of the racers from TAR 4, 6, 8 returned, but the Top 3 placed 4th, 6th, 8th in the first two legs back-to-back, so coincidence?

From TARAus3:

John and Murray made it clear that they wouldn't help any Australian teams (only NZ teams), expect for the Intersection in Russia (Working with Ashleigh). Yet, in Leg 6, Daniel and Ryan had the chance to save J&M, but they didn't, due to them don't helping Aussie teams.

Karma?
LLLL

0 wins and 4 losses. 18th on the ladder. We Suck.

The reason they didn't save them was because they were a strong team who were a threat.

For TARCAN: S3,S4,S5 had the second boots last in the intro. For S4 and S5 the second last team in the intro was the first boot.

You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

Don't know if anybody said this but in TAR 25, the 6 teams on the first flight to London from St Thomas were the final 6 teams that season.

Now I'm going to give you guys a geography lesson first, before I start with the coincidences. So in East and South East Asia people consider the number 4 unlucky, even to the extent of going to 3 to 5, and skipping 4 completely in elevators. It is usually referred to death. Now what does all this have to do with what I'm going to be saying. Well TAR's first visit to China there were only 4 teams left. The majority of China visits in eastward routes usually end up being in the final 4. (1, 6, 11, 14, 16, 17, 27, 28, and 30) The first visit to South Korea was visited on the fourth season, and you guessed it there were 4 teams left. All visits to South Korea thus far in TAR US have had it always be the final 4. The first visit in Vietnam there were 4 teams left, as well as Taiwan. I just find this stuff interesting and no one has talked about this yet. What are your guys' thoughts on this.

EDIT: Talk about coincidences, this was my 44th post on this forum. Weird how the world works sometimes.
