** The ENTIRE ''World Tour'' finale can be considered a tearjerker. [[spoiler:Heather spent three seasons being the bad girl nobody likes, having to go to great lengths the entire third season just to get some [[{{DudeWheresMyRespect}} RESPECT]]. And finally, after all this time, not only does Cody say she's the good guy in the finale, she defeats her nemesis Alejandro and wins the game, with people CHEERING FOR HER and wanting her to win for once! So after gaining lots of CharacterDevelopment the entire season and becoming a DefrostingIceQueen, the writers show how little they care about Heather fans, and possibly the show itself, by making her lose the money anyway. She already chose money over love and now she has NOTHING. And in the version where Alejandro wins, Heather loses by making a very simple mistake (throwing Al's doll in the volcano). The heartbreak in Heather's face when she realizes that she made it this far and beat Alejandro just to lose to him via technicality is absolutely heart wrenching. All of this culminates in a massively depressing GainaxEnding once the volcano erupts. And, just in case the writers didn't make their point, the last shot of the season shows [[KickTheDog Heather about to get smashed by a smoldering boulder]]]] This was such a {{Downer Ending}} it's hard to watch. Chris even [[DudeNotFunny jokes about everyone dying]] due to the volcano explosion, prompting a search for new contestants in season four.

* Brody being disappointed in himself for his poor performance in the Calanque de Maubois Botch or Watch, and him and Geoff accepting their seemingly inevitable elimination. [[spoiler: Fortunately, they survived the leg.]]
* Laurie & Miles going through a [[HeroicBSOD complete breakdown]] over being forced to eat meat for a challenge.
** On that note, we also have [[spoiler: Laurie & Miles' elimination. While most of the teams thus far had mostly positive things to say about their experiences, they were the first to seem truly upset about their elimination.]]
** Followed by the beginning of the next episode, in which [[spoiler: [[FromBadToWorse Don implies they've been captured by cannibals]]]].
* Stephanie bullying Ryan through the gymnastics Botch or Watch in Transylvania, especially when contrasted with Jen's encouraging comments to Tom, who was struggling just as much. [[spoiler: Until the following episode in Hawaii, Ryan gets fed up on her and decides to break up due to her 'over-competitive' attitude.]]
* Crimson & Ennui losing their confidence after [[spoiler: they lose their goth makeup in Finland. Fortunately, they recover shortly afterward.]]
* Mickey repeatedly failing the air guitar challenge due to his stage fright. [[spoiler: It ultimately gets him and Jay eliminated.]]
* During the "The Shawshank Ridonc-tion", after getting first, Devin manage to call his girlfriend Shelly . [[spoiler: Unfortunately, since he couldn't get to call her phone he call her tennis instructor, which he soon realize that she dumped him and dating the tennis instructor instead. This causes him to break into tears after that. It gets worse in those couple of episodes later.]]
* After Ennui thinks he lost his pet rabbit, Loki [[spoiler:he didn't, the Ice Dancers stole Loki in an attempt to sabotage the Goths]] he reveals in the ConfessionCam that when he was a kid his parents gave him a black kitten for Christmas that he named "Toxic Mold", but the kitten ran out the back door and he never saw it again. Its pretty depressing, especially since up until this point the Goths were typically TheStoic and rarely showed any emotion, but it was clear Ennui was afraid history was repeating itself with his new pet. Leads to a Heartwarming moment when Crimson insists they stop competing until they find Loki.
* It's heartbreaking to see Brody about to cry when [[spoiler:he and Geoff get eliminated.]]
* In "How Deep Is Your Love", [[spoiler:[=MacArthur=] rushes the challenge by miscalculating in lowering Sanders down the hole to retrieve a ball, causing Sanders to break her arm. [=MacArthur=] gets ''very'' torn up and remorseful about it.]]

* In 'Food Fright', Gwen is crying over the fact she can't make up with Courtney, admitting this is the only reason she returned to a show where she gets publicly and internationally humiliated plus risking life and limb more than once.

* In 'Food Fright', Gwen is crying over the fact she can't make up with Courtney, admitting this is the only reason she returned to a show where she gets publicly and internationally humiliated plus risking life and limb more than once. Just listen to how her voice cracks mid-sentence before she breaks down sobbing.

Added DiffLines:

* Bridgette crying over Geoff in the confessional when he does not advance into the third season; Realizing she must go on without him, she promises to win it for the both of them before bursting into tears.


Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler:It only got worse for Courtney after being flushed, when she later resurfaces at a beach and is greeted by a pair of sharks, who she tries to ward off by offering them her sundae; Repulsed, they instead vomit all over her. Broken and humiliated, she breaks down into tears.]]
