* GenreSavvy:
** When Katie continued to struggle with the sandcastle Roadblock, she came up with the plan to convince the other two teams into taking the four-hour penalty, taking their fate out of the hands of luck (as Katie was afraid the other teams would randomly stumble upon a clue before she did), and forcing a showdown with the canoes.
** During the scorpion Roadblock in Botswana, Max wore a glove, [[CrazyPrepared stating that he brought gloves into the race because he knew that eventually he would have to touch something gross]].
** Katie correctly predicted that the prize for winning leg 9 would be a pair of Ford Fusions when one was used as part of a task during the leg.
** At the beginning of leg 10, they went to a business center to book tickets to Scotland in the middle of the night, while all the other teams rushed to the airport to wait in closed lines, and got tickets on the best flight for their efforts.



* GenreSavvy: They quickly decided to set a snare trap over building a fire in the leg 6 Detour, a decision which jumped them from fighting to avoid last up to 2nd place:
-->'''Winnie''': We knew that building a fire from scratch is really hard, that's because we watch a lot of TV. We're very well prepared.



* SurpriseDifficulty: [[{{In-Universe}} In their final leg, they talked about]] how, no matter how much you prepare, you can never predict the level of anxiety and the amount of pressure that comes with actually running the race.

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.
