* TemptingFate: In the infamous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cfeTZNcA3g&feature=youtu.be watermelon scene]] from this season. After failing to hit the suit of armor with her first two watermelons in the slingshot challenge, Claire is encouraged to hit the armor "right in the kisser". Perhaps they should have specified whose kisser it was, namely the suit of armor's and not ''[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Claire's]]''.

Emmy-winning RealityShow created by Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster and aired on Creator/{{CBS}} since 2001. Hosted by Phil Keoghan, the show could vaguely be considered the RealityShow version of ''AroundTheWorldInEightyDays''.

** Season 16 is the race's biggest example: The prize for winning the first leg was a trip to {{Vancouver}}, including a skeleton ride at the Whistler Sliding Center. A fairly obvious tie-in with the 2010 Vancouver Winter UsefulNotes/OlympicGames... only one of the Olympic athletes died going down that track on the day of the opening ceremony, mere days before the episode aired. Also, that and the next leg went through Chile - aired a week before it was hit with an 8.8 earthquake. Then, after the fourth leg, one contestant (Louie) was put under investigation under suspicion of being involved in a police run cocaine ring in Rhode Island. The next leg was packed with comments from Louie & Michael talking about how their jobs as cops prepared them for the race. Then, leg 10 features He Pingping, the shortest man in the world, only to have him die between the episode filming and airing.

** Its second season is notable for having a team who ''completely'' [[{{WeUsedtobeFriends}} ended their friendship]] right after being eliminated from the race, and one of them not showing up at the Finish Line in the finale for that reason.

* SurpriseDifficulty: [[{{In-Universe}} Even racers who have been fans of the series for years]] have finished the first leg in shock of how difficult the Race actually is. Even racers who've won other [[Series/{{Survivor}} Reality]] [[BigBrother Shows]] have commented on it.

* FleetingDemographic: Bertram justified only teams being selected from Seasons 12-17 for Unfinished Business by claiming that people might not remember contestants from earlier ones. Though this hasn't stopped ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' or ''BigBrother'' from recycling contestants repeatedly, unlike those shows, people do not automatically become celebrities for running or even winning the Race.

* CurbStompBattle: The show itself, as a Meta example. It has dominated the Emmy's Reality-Competition Program category since it's inception in 2003, winning the first seven awards, and ten overall, quintupling the number of awards won by every other reality show combined. Even if the show never won another award, it would take until 2022 for all the other reality shows combined to catch up to the show's ten Emmys.

** The final legs often have a [[FinalExamBoss Final Exam Challenge]] that will require the racers to remember all of the countries they visited, sometimes placing them in the right order. In Season 17, Nat and Kat had took detailed notes and when confronted with this, whipped out their notebook which allowed them to breeze through it. [[ObviousRulesPatch At the time]], this was actually not against the rules as there wasn't anything saying they could ''not'' reference their notes.
