Luckiest Teams of TAR
« on: December 16, 2014, 08:33:39 PM »
After thinking through what happened in Leg 11 of TAR25, I think that twists really become unpredictable, and the team spared in that situation was very lucky. :reindeer Aside from that though, TAR is a game of luck at times. Some are lucky to arrive in the F3, while some are eliminated by some bad luck.

Here are some of my examples:

TAR21: Beekman Boys: Survived several legs at the bottom with a NEL, a 4H penalty, and a delayed flight, but later on won the race.

TAR22: CaroJen: Beat the firefighters in a canoe race in the 1st leg, and later managed to survived (usually at the bottom) until the Final 4, but were called back for a 2nd try around the world in TAR24.

TAR23: Tim & Marie: They were risking not to use their EP after knowing that they were way behind other teams in Leg 3. Lucky for them, Marie predicted right that there was a team behind them.

TAR25: Brooke & Robbie: Normally at the back of the pack for the earlier legs of the race. They somehow caught up towards the end of each leg.

TAR16: Louie & Michael: They were at the back of the pack for most times in earlier legs and were almost eliminated in Leg 2. They won some legs in Europe and got to the F4.

Who else do you think is an extremely lucky team? :cmas23

Some of things you listed here I don't think they're luck. Like always in the bottom but survived doesn't mean that they got luck, they just did it better than other teams.
Like Brooke & Robbie, how did you say they get luck? They're back in the top by themselves (do the later tasks quickly). I said they got a lot of bad luck: always have problem with finding taxi, losing first place lead due to luck task (ox is broken), won the leg without any prize and get eliminated in final leg (if there is no final 4 twist, they still have a chance to cover back to the top, maybe but no, they will get eliminated).

I wouldn't say they were usually at the bottom. I feel they were mid-pack throughout most of TAR 22 and always at the top or at the very bottom in TAR 24 :lol:

Uchenna and Joyce [TAR7]: If the plane had not *mysteriously* gone back to pick them, then Rob and Amber would have easily won, and that would have been the first time that the first flight to the final destination was significantly ahead of the subsequent flights. [TAR5's different flights from Calgary to Dallas weren't too far apart to give Chip and Kim a very significant advantage I guess.]

Eric and Danielle [TAR11]: Not sure if this is true, but Eric and Danielle got lucky when Dustin and Kandice encountered an issue with their safe at the challenge in the Old Mint, and Eric and Danielle gained a crucial advantage from that.

Flight Time and Big Easy [TAR15]: Extremely lucky that Mika did not want to complete the water slide task, and this allowed the Globetrotters to survive another 5 more legs. >___> I suppose they would still have been invited back on TAR18 and TAR24 anyway, since they were popular with the NBA fans, and you could justify them taking far too long at the unlocking briefcase task to be a legitimate reason to call them back on Unfinished Business.

Meghan and Cheyne [TAR15]: Apparently, the lady counted Brian's and Erika's chips wrongly and delayed them, allowing Meghan and Cheyne to pull off the miraculous comeback [last at the roadblock but the first to leave].

Jaymes and James [TAR21]: Fortunate to outrun Rob and Sheila to the pit stop.

Beekman Boys [TAR21]: James and Abba got eliminated because of the lost passport issue. Beekman Boys would certainly have not survived the Russian legs, especially with the 4 hour penalty.

Amy and Maya [TAR25]: Timely non-elimination on Leg 11 allowed them to proceed to the last leg, and they took full advantage of it.

I have  very fitting sporting quote about this. This was said by Ingemar Stenmark to a journalist who just had asked him if he did feel lucky since he had just won again. The response was "I don’t know anything about luck but I know for sure that the more i train the more luck i get "

Kinda agree. Most of them are somewhat being saved by NELs or other team unlucky situation and penalty or even a twist (Eg. 4 teams in final leg), some of them are lucky in final leg. (Eg. Flight delayed, EZ Pass, Flour throwing in Helicopter, )

Yea, don't think they stood a chance with TAR 22... thought that it was Bates and Anthony race to lose.

Well, if they did not get injury back there, they might still have enough luck to win though. We've just never known.

For the U.S. original, I will have to say Caroline & Jennifer had the most amount of luck, finishing either dangerously low or surprisingly well at the Pit Stops and on the course. Hadn't Matt & Daniel's canoe capsized, the Twinnies' miscommunication at Canton Tower, and Jet & Cord's generosity for giving them the second Express Pass, they would have been kaput.

But as a franchise, Lucy & Emilia from TARAus2 is the luckiest team ever. :luvya:
L1: Saved by Ross & Tarryn's Salvage Pass
L2: Saved by Adam & Dane's penalty
L3: Saved by Teresa struggling at the Panna Meena ka Kund RB
L4: Saved by Kym & Donna's navigation fiasco (Note: L&E detained by Arab police) :faint:
L5: Saved from non-elimination by Ross & Tarryn and James & Sarah struggling badly at the mosque symbol RB

I'm not sure if any other team can even beat them in luck! If TAR was purely a luck-based game, they would be at the finish line while the other teams are at least a leg behind :lol:

Has anyone even mentioned Kami & Karli yet? Those two girls are also really lucky!

Here's Lucy & Emilia's were track record :) BTW, I already typed this when you guys posted.

Leg 1: They were last, but saved by the Salvage Pass from Ross & Tarryn
Leg 2: Saved by Adam & Dane's selling-personal items penalties.
Leg 3: Saved by Sue & Teresa breaking down at the stair counting Roadblock
Leg 4: Got detained by police in Dubai for driving into royal grounds, but were saved by Kym & Donna getting very very lost.
Leg 5 - 6: Nothing of note really, but two teams (James & Sarah and Ross & Tarryn) quit the symbol column Roadblock, giving the sisters some cusion.
Leg 8: The one leg they were actually good at (running in front of the pack alongside Paul & Steve and Michelle & Jo), was oddly cut, setting the pit stop a flight away in Cuba, dropping the sisters to 5th.
Leg 9: Saved by James & Sarah's money troubles and missing the HoO opening.
Leg 10: Luck ran out :( , and were eliminated.
This is familiar. I'm having flashbacks of death and almost dying. That's wonderful. - Debbie, S07E03

If they didn't have to go to Cuba to end Leg 7, Lucy & Emilia would've had a top 3 finish! I wonder if they would've kept their lead after that leg, though...

How about Meredith & Gretchen? (old couples team <3333333333 along with Bill & Cathi)


I think Meredith & Gretchen make into the F4 due to the streaks of luck start from Africa leg to their elimination.


South Africa: Saved by NEL (though OMG at Gretchen got injured badly)
Botswana 1: Brian & Greg flipped their car and Ray & Deana incompetence bickering
Botswana 2: No bunching point, Brian & Greg couldn't recover from the incident last leg
India 1: Saved by TBC
India 2: Lynn & Alex got lost to the Pit Stop
Turkey: Being on the REAL earlier flight to Istanbul with the help of Romber prank on them about the FAKE earlier flight.


England: Luck ran out and eliminated. They have chance to survive this leg if they gamble to take the flight to London by connecting in Frankfurt on standby tickets and/or Romber yield Uchenna & Joyce instead of Ron & Kelly.

Just watched TAR Australia 2, and I have to say that it's amazing! :hearts: Nothing beats Lucy & Emilia's luck. :funny:

Just a repeat of some of the posts above: :lol:
Show content
Leg 1: Save by the Salvage Pass.
Leg 2: Around 3 minutes before Adam & Dane's penalty time is up, they made it. :funny:
Leg 3: Sue & Teresa had their fall. :( Luckily for Lucy & Emilia, it was their 1st time not arriving last. :funny:
Leg 4: Kym & Donna had to get lost in this leg, to save Lucy & Emilia despite being arrested. :funny:
Leg 5+6: 2 Teams had a 4-hour penalty. If they took the penalty too, I think they would beat Ross & Tarryn and even survive the next leg. :funny:
Leg 7: Zero-hour Pit Stop, but if they stayed in France for the whole leg, they could've been 3rd, or they could even potentially beat the 2 teams ahead of them.
Leg 8: Joseph & Grace made a bad move at the detour while Sticky & Sam made a bad move too at the "Australia" trick. With these 2 conditions, Lucy & Emilia were saved again. :funny:
Leg 9: James & Sarah messed up by being late and forgetting to pay the hotel, giving Lucy & Emilia enough time to mess up a bit. :(
Leg 10: Unfortunately, nobody else got bad luck, so Lucy & Emilia had to go. :(

If they survived Leg 10, Joseph & Grace's money problems in Leg 11 will most likely save them all the way to the F3. :funny: I wish they made it to China. :(
If only an all-star is possible with Lucy & Emilia... :funny: They were very fun to watch. :conf:

Denise & James Earl, for winning a leg just because they were given the EP because they don't seem like a threat to Tanner & Josh.

Tiffany & Krista, because Kelly & Shevonne finished a 4 by 4 puzzle in almost 4 hours. :cmaslol

Justin & Diana, because despite their mistake with the Fast Forward they survived.

Speaking of Tylers, all racers whose teammate's name is Tyler are lucky. :cmaslol

Gino & Jesse barely survived over Susan & Sharnjit in leg 2 of Canada 3, this is lucky for brother, but it led to the disastrous season (including two U-turn in leg 5 and 10, cabotage in leg 11)

And the third (in the season after that post was made) almost lost his backpack because another racer accidentally took it!

I wonder what Tyler would do if Scott & Blair took a 30-minute penalty at the pit stop instead.

Even though they only made the halfway point, mention goes to a couple Canadian teams

Rex & Bob of Canada 2

Leg 2 - After an incredibly foolish decision to quit 2 tasks in the same leg (ARI + Roadblock = 6 hours), another team's Medevac miraculously kept them in the race.

Nic & Sabrina of Canada 3

Leg 3 - Quit an ARI that was right up their alley, the 2-hour penalty costing them 7 places. Safe by minutes.
Leg 4 - Possibly eliminated again if not for last place team's lost passport
Leg 5 - Arrived last, ZHPS but also bumped up because 2 teams served penalties

Uchenna and Joyce [TAR7]: If the plane had not *mysteriously* gone back to pick them, then Rob and Amber would have easily won, and that would have been the first time that the first flight to the final destination was significantly ahead of the subsequent flights.

Added to that the equalizer in Puerto Rico (Muelle De Azucar) - irritates me that they have one in the middle of a leg and also in a finale - EPIC FAIL !!
