So far there have been three versions of TAR US that have had both a Detour and a RB in the first leg - TAR 1 (with the RB unaired but available on DVD), TAR 10, and TAR 28.

In all three of those seasons, the team that won the first leg won the entire season  :colors

And there also have been three versions of TAR US that have had 2 RBs in first leg - TAR 21, TAR 22 and TAR 23, unfortunately team  that won the first leg didn't win the entire season

Apparently the new trend this year is forfeiting Express Passes (not using it until the host takes it back at the deadline). It happened for the first time just 2 months ago on TAR Vietnam All-Stars, and it happened again last night on TAR Canada 4.

No team has ever been eliminated in the province of Quebec.

Is Leg 7 of Season 9 the only leg where the leg placements are the reverse of the team's final placements (B.J. & Tyler were 5th, ended up 1st; Eric & Jeremy were 4th, ended up 2nd; Ray & Yolanda were 3rd, and ended up 3rd; Joseph & Monica were 2nd, ended up 4th; Fran & Berry were 1st, ended up 5th)

TAR 25- The season where every team placed last at least once ( if you count Adam/Bethany placing 3rd last)

TAR 28- The season of preventable eliminations imo ( every team eliminated on an elimination leg could have been saved had they made better decisions/read the clue/etc)

I guess one could argue that if they had made the train to Chamonix with the 8 other teams they could have survived with such a tight footrace!

^ That's Brittany & Jessica :P And with them, I'm sure they would've beaten Scott & Blair in a footrace, though such an elimination would've been horrible (although the bunching was already horrible in itself).

But can Erin not being able to run off the cliff in Chamomix count as a preventable elimination?

Oh that's right! Thank you! But yeah, Erin couldn't hang glide off the mountain during the roadblock, even though she had multiple chances to beat Sheri, Ashley, and Blair.

Frankie & Amy (TAR Canada 4) are the 3rd Mother/Daughter team across all versions to enter the Top 5, with the 1st one being Nancy & Emily (US Season 1) followed by Debbie & Dana (TAR Israel 3). 5th place is so far the highest place attained by a Mother/Daughter team. Should Frankie & Amy make it further, they'll be the new title holders.

Interesting! :o

The closest reverse I could think of is TAR16 from Leg 7 to Leg 8:
~Cowboys' worst to first from Seychelles to Malaysia.
~Carol & Brandy's 5th to 2nd.
~Brent & Caite and Louie & Michael switching placements.
~Dan & Jordan's 2nd to 5th.
~Steve & Allie's first to worst.

I think another close reverse is TAR2's penultimate leg, where Blake & Paige got 1st and ended up 3rd, Tara & Wil were initially 2nd and ended up 2nd, and Chris & Alex got 3rd and ended up 1st. However, Tara & Wil were bumped up into a tie for 1st due to a time credit, so it technically doesn't count.

Joel & Ashley of TAR Canada 4 being the 2nd team to get U-Turned twice by another team (U-Turned by Jillian & Emmett and Steph & Kristen) but still survive. The 1st one was Leo & Jamal of US Season 23, (U-Turned by Tim & Danny and Nicole & Travis) but still survive

Alon & Hen and Bar & Inna (Hamerotz Lamillion 2), Vova & Alla (Hamerotz LaMillion 4), Yael & Yosiel and Josie & Alex (Hamerotz Lamillion 5) were also U-Turned twice but through a majority vote by other teams and still survive.

Paul & Steve (TAR Aus 2) were also U-Turned twice but still survive with the 1st U-Turn being a majority vote from other teams and the 2nd U-Turn coming from Shane & Andrew.

If I'm not mistaken, Steph & Kristen are the 1st Lesbian team to make the Final 3.

With that fact, I think TAR should cast more lesbian teams then. ???

What about how many parents/children, grandparents and grandparents/grandkids have been on TAR?
