Total Number of Legs Won by the Final 3 *since Season 18*:
Season 18: 06/12 legs (50.0%)
Season 19: 06/12 legs (50.0%)
Season 20: 11/12 legs (91.7%)
Season 21: 06/12 legs (50.0%)
Season 22: 08/12 legs (66.7%)
Season 23: 08/12 legs (66.7%)
Season 24: 09/12 legs (75.0%)
Season 25: 09/12 legs (75.0%)
Season 26: 08/12 legs (66.7%)
Season 27: 09/12 legs (75.0%)

How many teams in the Final 3 won a leg? *since Season 18*:
Season 18: 3/3 teams
Season 19: 3/3 teams
Season 20: 2/3 teams
Season 21: 3/3 teams
Season 22: 2/3 teams
Season 23: 3/3 teams
Season 24: 2/3 teams
Season 25: 3/3 teams
Season 26: 3/3 teams
Season 27: 3/3 teams (still :lol: @ Logan & Chris actually having won a leg)

A record 5 of the 11 teams in the Season 22 cast have all experienced racing in the Final 3.

The reason all of this data starts at Season 18 is because of the limited Fast Forwards and mainly because I don't know what counts as one or two legs in the early seasons.

There have been 84 NEL's through the past 27 seasons (this excludes all fake Pit Stops in which the "leg was not over;" however it does include the legs with no rest period beginning in TAR 18).

0 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 12 teams remaining.
3 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 11 teams remaining (15, 18, 19).
0 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 10 teams remaining.
4 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining (17, 18, 22, 26).
8 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining (6, 16, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 27).
11 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining (5, 7, 10, 11, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 27).
15 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining (1, 2, 6, 8, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27).
16 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 5 teams remaining (1, 2, 3[x2], 4, 5[x2], 8, 9, 12, 14, 15, 19, 20, 22, 24).
21 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining (1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11[x2], 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 21, 23, 25[x2], 26).
6 NEL's have occurred on a leg with 3 teams remaining (1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9).

Digging deeper into the NEL's..

Out of the 3 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 11 teams remaining, 3/3 were survived.
Out of the 4 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 9 teams remaining, 3/4 were survived (all except 26).
Out of the 8 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 8 teams remaining, 6/8 were survived (16, 20, 23, 24).
Out of the 11 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 7 teams remaining, 10/11 were survived (all except 14).
Out of the 15 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 6 teams remaining, 6/15 were survived (2, 6, 8, 13, 16, 18).
Out of the 16 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 5 teams remaining, 10/16 were survived (2, 3[x2], 4, 5[x2], 8, 9, 22, 24)
Out of the 21 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 4 teams remaining, 13/21 were survived (1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11[x1], 12, 13, 15, 25[x2]).
Out of the 6 NEL's that have occurred on a leg with 3 teams remaining, 3/6 have eventually won the Race. (2, 3, 7).

Seasons where all NEL's were survived: 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 13, 18, 22, 24

The amazing race Australia and the amazing race Vietnam are the only versions which had the Double Legs in all season (For Australia, it always occured in leg 7), Conversely the amazing race Brazil had no double legs

Of the 12 US seasons that have visited South America, 8 have also visited Africa. (Only seasons 9, 13, 18, and 23 visited SA and not Africa.)

Random: The proposed Keystone Pipeline would run from Alberta to Texas, just like the TAR 5 finale.

And no Final 3 with 2 F/F and 1 M/M.

Did a Final 3 with 2 F/F and 1 M/M in other international versions before?
It didn't occur in Amazing race franchise but already occured in Pekin Express 10 (All-star version)

- 2.02 (Brazil / 10 teams remain)
- 1.01 (Zambia / 11 teams remain)

* fun fact: if we count drives from Pit Start to airport then every leg of TAR 9 has self driving.
** to be fair all but three legs were self-driving

Also 17 should be leg 1 since teams drove themselves in England.

Both Malaysian legs in the amazing race asia allowed teams to drive themselves while both Malaysian ones of TAR All-Star 2 wasn't and this is the reason which led to Youtube's cab drama and booted them
I'm very disapointed because all legs in Russia of TAR 17 and TAR 21 and Turkish leg of S21 weren't self-driving
If Honda or Suzuki or Toyota were one of the sponsors of the amazing race US after season 17,We might have a self-driving legs in Japan in TAR 18, 20, 23 and 26

Just like Tyler curse, we have Brittany curse since two contestants named Brittany all finish in 9th. (21 and 28)

And also France joins the elite club of countries that are visited for three consecutive seasons after India (12, 13, 14), China (16, 17, 18), Indonesia (21, 22, 23), aside from USA, of course.

Some notable curse still unbroken
1)For Vietnamese versions, team won a leg 3 also won a final legs and all of them win at least 4 legs
2)If teams have racers name Jonathan, they would win a race or got 9th place curse (real name of Bates is Jonathan Bates Battaglia and first non-elimination legs of these season happened in leg 3 (Season 17, 22 and 26)
3)Team win 5 consecutive legs not win a race (Justin & Diana for TAR 27, Paul & Steve for TAR Australia 2 and Kiwi & Hoang Duong for TAR Vietnam 3)
4)TAR Canada, Australia and Norway only win by all males teams, conversely no MM team win TAR France, Ukraine, China, Israel and Phillipines
5)TAR Vietnam only needs three seasons to produce all types of team win a race, (US need 17 season)

For instance, the largest gap of straight ELs were seven (7): TAR 3 and TAR 4.
