* VillainousBreakdown: Colin did not take getting Yielded very well, leading into the infamous "My ox is broken" breakdown at the following Detour. They survived because of a non-elimination leg, but Colin made several mistakes over the next two legs that led to them losing the race, mistakes that both he and the other teams believed he never would have made before the Yield. Even Christie herself took a blow after the Yield as well, as she she was acting dangerously calm while directing their driver in the Philippines. When the task was reused in [[Characters/TheAmazingRace25 Season 25]], Phil called it, "possibly the biggest breakdown ever."

* ChessMaster: Unlike teams in previous seasons, Colin would willingly let teams follow him, and even book or buy tickets for them, because (a) he would then know where exactly the other teams were and what they were doing, (b) they would be reliant on him for their directions[=/=]tickets instead of doing the work themselves, and (c) when there were a limited number of tickets, it let him decide who would be on the same bus or plane with them. In the fourth leg, he even got the other teams to voluntarily let him and Christie take the only tickets on the earliest flight to St. Petersburg.
