* ParanoiaFuel: Linda was uncomfortable with air travel, so in leg 3, when flying for the first time during the season, after booking their tickets the entire family walked up to another counter to ask a few questions, [[{{In-Universe}} causing the Aiello and Schroeder Families to suspect them of plotting something.]]

However, due to legal and insurance issues, teams were confined to the North American continent, which meant that the vast majority of the race was spent exploring the United States. Along with an accumulation of other issues such as an extra family being cut at the last minute, having to fit 40 contestants into the same amount of airtime normally meant for 22, an extremely large amount of non-elimination legs[[note]]With only seven eliminations spread over thirteen legs, there were three non-elimination points and two double legs[[/note]], [[SequelDifficultyDrop the difficulty of most of the tasks being reduced dramatically]] (the leg 4 Roadblock involved one team member climbing a ladder to the top of the world's tallest office chair), and the emphasis being pulled off of the international travel aspect and onto a bunch of family members arguing in the back of an SUV, and you are left with a season many people consider to be the worst.

However, the cast was (for the most part) diverse and memorable, the season was very competitive with no dominant favorite, and, if you lived outside of North America, the chances were you found something enjoyable about it.

Two children, their dad, and stepmother. They started off strong, but got lost in the fourth leg looking for a park five minutes from Mark's place of work, and half an hour away from their house, which ended up making them the only team to be eliminated in their hometown, New Orleans. Months later, their home was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. Stassi would go on to appear on ''Queen Bees'', a reality show meant to rehabilitate {{Alpha Bitch}}es, followed by being one of the lead stars of the reality show Vanderpump Rules.

* GenreSavvy: In leg 5 they knew they were in last place and knew there was a chance this was a non-elimination leg. They also knew from last season, that if so, they'd lose everything but the clothes they were wearing. So they put on 3 pairs of clothing and underwear.

Season 8 was initially planned to be an All-Star season, the same numbered season as ''{{Series/Survivor}}''. However, after seeing how [[Characters/SurvivorAllStars Survivor: All-Stars]] ended up becoming bitter and personal, and wanting to avoid something like that happening on what was essentially a family show, the idea was scrapped and a radical idea was put in its place. Season 8 was billed as a ''Family Edition'', where families of four could compete, and it would be the only season where children under the age of 18 could participate.

* BornLucky: One instance of this in the "Work or Play" detour. In "Play", teams had to win three games of Twenty One against a professional card dealer. Most teams lost game after game without a single win, until they gave up and took "Work" instead. The Weavers won their first two games on their first two tries, and won their third not long after.[[note]]The Schroeders also had good luck at the game, but finished last and were eliminated in the same leg. [[/note]]
* BreakTheHaughty[=/=][[BeingEvilSucks Being Hated Sucks]]: At first, they took some pride in the fact they [[ImNotHereToMakeFriends weren't here to make friends]], but by leg 8, the hate they were getting from all sides was getting to them. In leg 10, after being Yielded for the second time, they were actually hoping to be eliminated. Phil noted they were the least enthusiastic last team to find out they weren't being eliminated in the show so far. He gave them a RousingSpeech that restored their spirits.
