The initial twist for the 22nd Season of the ''[[Series/TheAmazingRace Race]]'' was the introduction of the double Express Passes, one for the teams to keep, and one to give to another team. However, said twist was overshadowed by the complete insanity that occurred during the first eight legs of the season. Among other things, three teams willingly quit a Roadblock to force a canoe race to the Pit Stop, three teams suffered {{Shocking Elimination}}s after losing huge leads (all of them over an hour) at the Detour, two teams got speeding tickets in the same city[[note]]the only other time a team got a speeding ticket was [[Characters/TheAmazingRace13 Terence & Sarah in Season 13]][[/note]], a contestant tore his Achilles tendon, only to win the next two legs before dropping out of the Race, a team got eliminated while still holding their Express Pass, and a team walked all the way to the Pit Stop when everyone else took cabs, only to be saved from elimination by another team's penalty. While the last four legs were notably less exciting, not to mention less competitive and somewhat predictable, that itself was counterbalanced by nearly every single team left in the race being likable in some way. The combination of the insanity of the first eight episodes and the likability of the latter four created a season that, although not as memorable as [[Characters/TheAmazingRace21 its predecessor]], stands as an overall good season.

Nerd Glasses is about the type of glasses, not about nerds wearing glasses. They actually wear fairly normal paris of glasses. Idries's are close, but Jamal's aren't remotely nerdy
* NerdGlasses: Both would a pair of these all the time.

Members of the band Stealing Angels, Jennifer is the granddaughter of JohnWayne, while Caroline is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone. After barely escaping elimination during the canoe race in the first leg, they proved to be surprisingly resilient. However, resiliency did not translate to them being strong racers, as they spent a lot of time in the middle of the pack, never really in danger of elimination, but never close to the top of the pack either. In Ireland, Jen ended up struggling mightily with the bog snorkeling Roadblock, dropping them way behind and causing them to finish 4th. To the [[UnexpectedCharacter surprise of many]], they were invited back for [[Characters/TheAmazingRaceAllStars2014 All-Stars.]]
