Randomly looking through results of different Seasons, and I think TAR Asia 5 is the only Season where none of the Final 3 won more than 1 Leg.  :o
It occured because the Yield and U-turn in penultive leg, if Leg 9 were designed normally, Yvonne & Chloe would be booted due to Chloe's injury leaving F3 with Parul & Maggie, Trez & Lou, Eric & Rona

Germany is the most-visited country that has never hosted a U-Turn, with 11 visits. South Korea and Malaysia are in second place with 8 visits.

Norway is the most-visited country with no Non-Elimination legs, with 6 visits (No-rest doesn't count)

Because US version has fewer performance ARI tasks than international counterparts, some ARI tasks can't be skipped by using EP such as collecting coins in TAR 23 leg 4

True. A lot more ARI's that are actually full-blown tasks.

seasons with 3 F/F teams in top 5
Canada 4, Asia 2 & 5, Israel 3
48 consecutive legs in US version without F/F teams win, It would be 55 if F4 finale twist wasn't introduced in TAR 25

TAR Asia and TAR Israel usually have strong female teams, they usually cast more F/F teams than M/M teams, both versions are produced by ActiveTV (except TAR Asia 5)

Except premiere and finale, Israeli legs' structure were far longer and more tasks than other versions, thus the losers of face off task(s) have a chance to catch up other teams, even strong team like Bar & Inna and Alan & Oren already lost a the face-off

Yeah, Israel has ridiculously long legs. Hence most episodes being split into 3 parts over the course of the week.

TAR Israel 5 only has 5 detours but all of them were covered by Most vote U-turn, and this season also has 5 Face-Off and the final losing team were totally different
Amit & Raz was the best father/son winner ever, they completed far more tasks than Tim & Tim and Dave & Connor, except prelims and finale, each legs in Israel contains about 10 and more tasks!

Very skewed in casts for season with NBA or NFL teams
S15 FT & BE 4 M/M, 1 F/F
S23 Chester & Ephraim 5 M/M, 2 F/F
S30 Cedric & Shawn 5 M/M, 3 F/F
We have 3 consecutive season with F/F teams booted in leg 2, after ten consecutive season (S18 => S27) without them

I remember a tweet Luke made during Season 24 about how when they opened their clue and saw another leg in China, his first thought was along those lines :P
