And really, chances are good someone at CBS just did the best they could. I am actually just glad they are celebrating anything TAR!!

OMG yes, I also wondered how TAR came up with 300.

I've definitely expressed my opinions on how to count double/super/TBC legs before, so I was excited to see that with the show officially saying 300, we'd get the "official" stand on how legs are counted. 

But I guess we've all come to the same conclusion...  :crazy: :lol:

Has anybody asked Phil? And has Phil answered? ???

Personally I am just grateful that they are celebrating TAR, if they are off by a few I don't want to embarrass anyone who may have done the count. I am happy with any recognition for our beloved TAR!!

Yea, it actually doesn't matter as long as they know how they have done the count.. -_-

Just be happy... it's not like Misti and Jim won 300k for winning this leg. :funny:

My personal take is every TBC is two legs. That would make the Shetland Islands leg #300 (11x13, plus 2x11, plus 11x12 equals 297). If memory serves there have only been three TBCs without a fake Pit Stop - the original Hungary one, the Family Edition finale, and the Finland/Ukraine one in TAR10 - which would lower the count to 294 if you treat those ones as long legs and make the second Morocco episode #300. And then it's just a matter of someone at CBS making a basic counting error that left them off by one. It's not too hard to imagine how they got the count they got, even if it is clearly wrong.

actually , in season 9 episode 5 ,
Phil introduced the first italy pit stop as "the 4th pit-stop in the race around the world"

Is it indicating that the production crew may count season 9 as a 13-leg race ?

oh I have typed in the wrong number )-**

In this video , Phil mentioned the Germany pit-stop to be "the 4th pit-stop in the race around the world"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XAJ4Foyo8w
In this video , Phil mentioned the Montana pit-stop to be "the 11th pit-stop in the Amazing Race"

Does this means they count Season 8 and 9  two 13-legs race ?

Phil has in no way been consistent if we look at his opening spiels!

From Season 18 onwards, all episode endings were counted as Pit Stops.
In Seasons 10 and 14, Helsinki and Beijing I were not counted as Pit Stops.
However, in Seasons 8 and 9, Moran and Moscow were counted as a Pit Stops.
Yet in Season 7, Lucknow was not counted as a Pit Stop.
In Season 6, Eger was not counted, until the finale episode when Phil called both Shanghai and Xi'an the "eleventh Pit Stop in a race around the world"!

Maybe by some random logic: Eger, Lucknow, Helsinki, and Beijing I are the non-Pit Stops, while Moran, Montreal, and Moscow (along with TAR 18 onwards non-stops) are counted? At least that gets us to 300.

:funny:

No wonder they ended up with 72,000 miles.

If only Phil called Beijing II (14) the "eleventh" Pit Stop instead of the "tenth"! Then the mystery would be solved, with Eger, Lucknow, Montreal, and Helsinki being the non-Pit Stops (none of them had team placements called out), and Moran, Moscow, and Beijing I being counted as Pit Stops...

Thing is I see that we are assuming that the pit stop means that a leg has ended in turn meaning "that was a leg". I think we need to assume that a leg is any segment that has a starting point and an ending point ( even if the ending point says keep going and move onto another "segment" ) or maybe a leg in filming doesn't equal a leg on the race... food for thought.

Anyone has all the seasons with penultimate legs? Look at what Phil says this is the ___ pitstop in the race around the world, then add the finale leg.. we should get the total legs per season, do that for 24 times +7 legs, will we get 300? :funny:

Just a thought, maybe they're considering Season 6 as 13 legs. Remember, that S6 was SUPPOSED to have 13 legs, with a non-elim after their visit to Eger. But when they learned that begging was illegal in Hungary, they quickly had to change plans.

As ZeroRecall mentions, all this assumes that legs are defined by Pit Stops.

There's no contest for Seasons 1-5: 13 legs each.
Xi'an and Montego Bay were the "11th Pit Stop," so 12 legs for Seasons 6-7.
Absarokee was the "11th Pit Stop," but was followed by a double-leg. So either 12 or 13 legs for Season 8 depending on whether you count Montreal.
Lake Yamanaka was the "12th Pit Stop," so 13 legs for Season 9.
Barcelona was the "11th Pit Stop," so 12 legs for Season 10.
No trouble with Seasons 11-13: 13 legs for Season 11, 11 legs for Season 12 and 13.
Beijing II was the "10th Pit Stop," so 11 legs for Season 14.
And smooth sailing from then on: 12 legs for Seasons 15-24.

13+13+13+13+13 + 12+12+12(or 13)+13+12 + 13+11+11+11+12 + 12+12+12+12+12 + 12+12+12+12+7 = 299 (or 300!)

So to repeat, by TPTB's twisted logic:
Eger [6], Lucknow [7], Helsinki [10], and Beijing I [14] are not Pit Stops, while
Moran [8], Montreal [8], and Moscow [9], along with TAR 18 onwards non-stops, are.
Now try to figure out why.

Or let's give up and go to bed. :funny:

I think we have it. They simply count Phil's pit-stop count for each season. Season 8 has 13 legs if the first TBC is actually a pit-stop... then the second one has no reason to not be.

omg. :stare

I watched TAR Asia 2 leg 5 and Allan hasn't just described Fukuoka as 5th pitstop (Virtual pitstop) but also reveal that "The last team check-in here might be eliminated"
