** You gotta give it a hand to Kristi & Jen as well. Being the last all-female team standing after the first two were eliminated right away, they gave it their all and managed to fight their way until the end of the season, finishing in 3rd overall. What's even more awesome? ''They never placed below 3rd'' [[note]] Excluding a leg where they swapped partners[[/note]], a record only Season 20's Art & JJ and 7's Eric & Jeremy came so close to having. Not only that, aside from being the first female team to have the season's best average in the American version, they beat Dustin & Kandice's previous record of 2.92, who held that record for '''10 years''' before these two took the title with their average of 2.36. Not bad for an all-female team!

* Even though they didn't win, you've got to hand it to Brent & Sean of TAR Canada 3 for managing to be good at many of the tasks and finishing first place in a good number of the legs. They were able to beat the more physically fit Gino & Jesse and Nick & Matt teams in some challenges such as the Curling Face-Off and the Waterskiing Challenge as well as completing the Needle In A Haystack Challenge faster than both teams. They probably could have won if they had pulled ahead, but even so, Brent & Sean did well for a team that had been underestimated during the whole race by the viewers and other teams. They were also the PluckyComicRelief team since Sean vomit every time he pushes himself or gets anxious.

** Flight Time and Big Easy were U-turned in one of the legs. They not only quickly completed the second task, but caught up to and even passed some of the other teams, with the line "Double U-Turn that!"

* In the first ''Amazing Race Canada'' season, Tim Sr. managed to finish the final memory task with only 2 tries, even though most teams take more than an hour during such tasks, all despite having Parkinson's disease and the task being more complicated than usual since the teams had to remember Canada's provincial flags and flowers (which the Pit Stop Greeters wore). He singlehandedly led him and Tim Jr. to become the first parent/child team winners in the entire franchise, and he credits his wife for reminding him [[GenreSavvy to pay attention]] as a challenge like this would come up.

* Dustin & Kandice beating out the Fast Forward on leg 8 of Season 10, making them the only team to ever come from behind to win a leg in which a team won the Fast Forward (other teams have done it, but only because the team who won the Fast Forward was too far behind to win the leg... [[WhatAnIdiot or else they sat around all day drinking tea]]). Made even better by the constant shots of the two teams who had taken the Fast Forward standing around, laughing about how miserable Dustin & Kandice must be doing an Intersection with one of the "weak" teams, turning the entire leg into one extended DescriptionCut.
