** Unfinished Business had Amanda & Kris and Mel & Mike (both 14), Amanda & Kris for being an 8th place team who most people didn't remember, and Mel because most people thought a 70-year-old wouldn't be able to handle the increased competition of an All-Star season. Plus, there were three other teams brought back from Season 14, giving a bit of Season 14 overload. they ended up being the first two teams out, so the complaining didn't last long.

** Redmond on Season 29. He initially left a bad impression on the fanbase for is overly-competitive and somewhat condescending attitude towards other team, even calling Vanck & Ashton weak for U-Turning them. After that instance, this attitude pretty much disappeared. He retained his competitive outlook, but he was nicer to the other teams, even helping Brooke during her first meltdown. Also, taking his missing leg in good humor definitely helped as well. When he and Matt were eliminated on Leg 11, most of the fanbase were saddened by it

* BreatherLevel: Leg 11 of Amazing Race 29 was this, after a very grueling leg. Teams only had to do Cup Stacking (Which, while intended to be HarderThanItLooks, was still easy enough to learn with practice), make Kimchi, and beat a korean eSports player in VideoGame/StreetFighterIV (with some handicaps added later to [[AntiFrustrationFeatures make it possible]]). It felt an awful lot like a first or second leg, in comparison to a penultimate leg. This might have been because the 10th leg was ''very'' grueling.

* HilariousInHindsight: Burnie and Ashley being in Season 28. One of Creator/RoosterTeeth's videos was a small series called "A Million Dollars, But..." in which Burnie and others would come up with hypothetical conditions a person would be put through if they were given a million dollars. Their appearance in Season 28 is essentially a season-long version of this video.

** Boston native Joey shouting "Go Red Sox!" at Wrigley Field during the season 29 finale is definitely this, as the Cubs would go on to win their first World Series in 108 years a few months after filming. Meanwhile, the Red Sox were swept by the Cleveland Indians in the first round.

* EndingAversion: The Race is notorious for having finales that are much weaker than the preceding legs, especially before Season 12 (see [[DisappointingLastLevel Disappointing Last Leg]]). The worst are probably Seasons 10 and 11, the former which involved three teams most of the audience didn't like or care about, and the later involving one of the most unpopular teams to ever win the race beating one of the most popular with a luck based task.

** Season 29 had a particularly bad example; contrary to the usual ManipulativeEditing, they didn't even ''try'' to make it look close. The winner could pretty much be determined less than halfway into the episode, and the team that finished in last place was hardly even ''shown'' through most of it. While an unpopular team winning is one thing, having the editing skewer heavily in favor of the eventual winner is another thing entirely.

Added DiffLines:

* [[BreatherLevel Breather Task]] or more rarely [[BreatherLevel Breather Leg]]: On occasion, one task (or leg) is usually pretty easy compared to the last couple. Usually it appears around the middle, and sometimes after a particularly grueling leg.

** In Season 2, Kym & Alli called Misti & Jim "Team No Fun" for their SeriousBusiness attitude. Come around Season 29, another team, Becca & Floyd receives the hashtag [=#TeamFun=]
