if you notice (or maybe some of you did), S29 is the first time the route marker is presented and existed in Vietnam (fan in ARI and ladder at detour)
The orginal route marker also presented in vietnam at TAR canada 4 and TAR Asia 5
and TAR Israel 5

I believe the infamous downed B-52 memorial in Hanoi in S22 also had a standard red and yellow cluebox.

Vietnam was apparently the go-to country of the year, being featured by 4 different versions in the past 12 months :lol: .

Israel and US to Hanoi in the north, Canada and Asia to Ho Chi Minh City in the south.

Five if Vietnamese version is counted.

Israel (November 2015), Vietnam (February-March 2016), Canada (May 2016), US (June 2016) and Asia.

John & Murray is the best averaging place among M/M teams who failed to reach F3 (13/6=2.167)
Treasuri & Louisa is the best averaging place among F/F teams who failed to reach F3 (21/9=2.333)

Had Banyuwangi's leg was normal penultimate leg,  they could have been easily won the tar based on their placement average

This may not be 100% accurate, but I think TAR 29 is the only Season to have teams go from 1st to Worst on 3 separate occasions.  (The most of any Season)

Tara & Joey - 1st Leg 8, Last Leg 9
Becca & Floyd - 1st Leg 9, Last Leg 10
Matt & Redmond - 1st Leg 10, Last Leg 11

If Brooke & Scott come in 3rd on the Final Leg, this record will increase to 4 separate times.
.... The World is Waiting! ....

TAR Asia 5
Brandon & Alphaeus 1st leg 1, last leg 2
JK & Mike 1st leg 7, last leg 8
Treasuri & Louisa 1st leg 8, last leg 9 (TYS + TUS)
Eric & Rona 1st leg 9, last leg 10 (finale)
All even occured in Indonesia, except for leg 7.

Even if Trez & Lou went to final, they would still finish 2nd in final as Maggie & Parul always read the clues carefully
And The amazing race asia 5 might be the first season in all franchises no team got penalty at pitstop or route marker!

Also, had the penultimate leg's U-Turn been placed after the Detour and Trez & Lou U-Turned Eric & Rona, causing the latter's elimination, we might have an all-female final 3!

We can match it if Brooke and Scott come in 3rd

It would have been history in the making if that happened. TAR Asia casted really strong F/F teams in their return season, very surprising.

No matter who win, season 29 will be the season that final 3 teams own the least amount of total leg win, with only 5
Supressing TAR 8/10/18/19/21's of 6

Just finished watching the Greece episode of S.29, the Speedbump for Mike & Liz is preparing the Greek dish, Kokoretsi. Mike is a butcher and a former chef, its second nature to him. Coincidence, I think not.

Matt & Redmond are the first team in the entire US Franchise to never place lower than 4th place but end up in 4th.

Of the 3 All-Female Teams that won the Amazing Race (US Version), Kisha & Jen are the only non-interracial team. Nat & Kat of S.17 and Amy & Maya of S.25 were interracial teams.

Yet they included at least one non-white member.

Well if they didn't they wouldn't be interracial

TAR456 meant that although Kisha & Jen weren't an interracial team, they can be counted in the "all FF winners have a non-white member" fact.

In TAR 6, 8, 9, 15, 28, and 29, the F3 never actually placed in the Top 3 together until the F4 elimination leg.
