* NobodyOver50IsGay: Averted with Mel.

Added DiffLines:

* SlowAndSteadyWinsTheRace: The first team to win deliberately using this strategy and the second team to win without having won a leg. Itd take until season 27 for another team (Kelsey and Joey) to do it without some sort of extenuating circumstance. [[note]] Brent and Josh from 21 were deliberately saved by the top three teams manipulating the double U-turn and ended up winning. Amy & Maya would have been eliminated in 25 in the penultimate leg but the gimmick that season was a 4 team finale. Amy did the memorization roadblock the fastest.[[/note]]


* NeverLiveItDown: After they won Unfinished Business, [[{{In-Universe}} Jen admitted in an interview]] that people were teasing her for their Season 14 elimination via bathroom break (calling her "Pee-Pee Girl"), and that winning Unfinished Business hopefully would put this to rest.

* GenreSavvy: They were the only team to completely ditch their bags in the final leg, though they probably would have been better served leaving them in the overhead compartments instead of [[Characters/TheAmazingRace5 checking their bags before getting on the flight.]]



* GenreSavvy: When decoding the nautical flag message in the premiere, Mallory decoded the first two letters as "F-I," and immediately said that the first three words will be, "Find your way..."



* [[WrongGenreSavvy Wrong Season Savvy]]: This was the worst season possible for them to stay separate from the other teams. On any other season, it would not have hurt them quite so badly.

* {{Expy}}: Without Brook around to [[SpotlightStealingSquad hog the spotlight]], it became very apparent why Mallory got kind of shoved into the background during [[Characters/TheAmazingRace17 Season 17]]. Brook and Mallory were the exact same character type, only Brook was loonier and got farther.

Originally unable to reach the Finish Line first due to a bad cab driver (though Jaime struggling to find the last surfboard at the Final Roadblock didn't help), the cheerleaders were back in red, this time with Jaime now a {{Playboy}} Playmate. They consistently lagged near the back of the pack, with Cara pointing out how they had never performed that badly during Season 14. They were eliminated in 9th place when Jaime struggled to complete the dinosaur assembly Roadblock.

* TheNoseKnows: During the needle-in-a-haystack tea-tasting task, Ron simply sniffed for the correct flavor, and thus finished the task on his first guess. Both Jet and Malory eventually picked up this tactic, but it took them both a lot longer.

** The penultimate leg began with Jen saying this had been the leg they had been eliminated last time. Later in the leg, they compared their cab driver dropping them off in the wrong part of Brazil to them getting lost looking for the U-Turn mat in that leg.
