** Jillian from Season 11 wasn't actually nominated at any point prior to the final episode, but could probably have graduated at any time she wanted, as she passed the majority of challenges she took part in (including every challenge in the second episode), and was considered the season's best driver from day one. However, she kept passing up the opportunity to graduate on the grounds that she still needed to address her severe anxiety, eventually resolving to take part in the final road test.

Sadly, her nerves proved too severe, which prevented her from taking the road test and caused her to be named the worst.

* BadassDecay: In Season 8, Flora seemed to be one of the better drivers initially, and both viewers and the show's judges alike predicted that as soon as her husband Frank stopped acting like a {{Jerkass}} BackseatDriver, she'd massively improve and quickly graduate. Unfortunately, her performances actually got ''worse'' as the season progressed, and seemed to show no real correlation as to how Frank behaved or whether he was even in the car, resulting in her being named the joint-worst for the season alongside Kevin.

* TheWoobie: Aaron, considering what he'd gone through. For extra lovability: his attitude and insistence of serving as a reminder about the ''real'' point of the show.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: ** While Andrew is definitely the star of the show, Cam is almost as popular thanks to his straight-talking nature and lack of any hesitance in calling out people who offer up any form of bullshit. ** Michael from Season 2 and Shelby from Season 3 (both of whom came back for ''Ever''), for both being all-around nice guys who always take full responsibility for their mistakes. Michael's ability to drop pertinent comic and sci-fi references into any situation may also help. ** Season 5's Father Giles, for being the epitome of a CoolOldGuy, and even praying with Crystal immediately after she found out that her brother-in-law had been killed in a traffic accident. ** Paul from Season 6; despite being a stereotypical BadassBiker and tough guy, he proved calm, capable and a very adept learner. ** Season 7 had probably the show's two all-time most popular contestants: Aaron and Shirley. The former for his backstory, his desire to make sure his own accident counted for something in helping others (even if it meant being named the worst, which he ultimately wasn't), and his overall performance on the show. Shirley's popularity was thanks to her consistently positive attitude and passing more challenges than anyone in the show's entire history, something that wasn't at all diminished when she got named the worst thanks to a horrid road test. Her darkhorse status was only further cemented when she came back for ''Ever'' and graduated second after a virtually flawless performance. ** Season 10 had a somewhat unusual example of this trope. While the season was actually airing, Siham was by far and away the most popular contestant with the fans, who viewed her as the DistaffCounterpart of Aaron, and it helped that she generally did well in the challenges. That all changed the day after the finale aired, when she went ballistic on social media, aiming some incredibly nasty insults at the people involved with making the show, and even some implied legal threats.[[note]](While she was vague about what exactly upset her, the general jist of it seemed to be that she was ''very'' pissed off that Jason was given the final graduation instead of her, and that Cam had tried to name her the worst driver. Many of the show's fans actually ''agreed'' that Siham should have been the final graduate, but the way she handled the issue unsurprisingly turned people off of her)[[/note]] Instead, Santana is now generally regarded as the season's Ensemble Darkhorse; while an early graduate, she was also perhaps the best performer aside from George, and definitely had the best attitude toward learning.

** Siham from Season 10 was nominated several times as the season progressed, but kept narrowly missing out and ended up in the final episode. In her case it was mostly because while she was quite capable technically, she had major issues with confidence and kept relying on her husband to make all the decisions.

In the end she didn't actually graduate as such, but did get easily the most positive edit out of any runner-up... not that this stopped her from dropping a ClusterFBomb or ten on Facebook and Twitter, over the fact that Jason was graduated over her.

** Season 7 saw a rare ''deliberate'' example of this trope, as Aaron could have potentially graduated by about the halfway point of the season. However, he was determined to stick around for the whole season, mainly because he wanted to take part in the final road test, which would prove once and for all that he could drive again.

** Mariah from Season 10 was an early favourite to end up as the season's worst driver, due to her lackadaisical attitude and unrepentant admission of drink-driving. Over the course of the season she made a genuine effort to improve, and fully redeemed herself by getting a "no drinking and driving" tattoo on her arm when she graduated.

*** To further about Colin, he went to college for [[HypocriticalHumor police studies]] - i.e. to become a police officer - when he was nominated, and said on camera that he would flash his student ID at any officer that pulled him over and claim he was on his way to an exam. Then, he said he 'didn't think cops were very smart'. Cam Woolley [[TheDogBitesBack took a number of very helpful photos of Colin's car, his license plate number, and the video clip of him saying he thinks police are stupid, and emailed it to all the officers in Colin's town.]] Apparently he had to sell his car because of all the police attention.

** Michael from ''Ever'', who managed to tie Ashley's record of 4 nominations without graduating... including being shortlisted three times in a row, much to his dismay. He would probably have graduated in the fourth or seventh episode, if not for Angelina being forced out due to her mental health issues in the former episode, and Dale being kicked out of rehab for attempting to quit and injuring herself in the latter.

He was the final graduate of the season, however, after a nearly-flawless public drive (while Sly had a flawless public drive, he did so badly on the challenges throughout the rest of the season that Michael was given the final graduation instead).

** Colin (season 2) and Scott (season 6) are both InUniverse for their arrogance and not taking the show permanently, after Scott was expelled, Paul said "Maybe this will wake him the @##! up".
