** Season 2 had a multiple step fetch quest, in a Roadblock, where a contestant had to go from spot to spot before being told to rejoin their teammate. [[ReadTheFreakingManual Two teams messed this up and had to do it over.]]

* 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]]''.

** 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.
