* In leg 10 there was no roadblock but instead a pretty involved task trying to tie three boats together in a Danish canal. The locals were not having it with these bumbling Americans. One guy straight up asked Tyler and Korey "Are you boys idiots or something?"

\n* When Rachel and Eliza and Victor and Nicole are fighting at the Pit Stop, Chris and Bret, who checked in in-between them, look like they have no clue what is going on.

* In a bit of CringeComedy, Corinne and Eliza raging at Rachel and Elissa once the former got eliminated. Corinne and Eliza misunderstood what Rachel meant when she said she was blessed (that she’s a well off American who gets to have the experience with her sister) and things went downhill from there. Rachel and Elissa were genuinely trying to be polite and respectful but Eliza rolled her eyes at them. Phil didn’t know what to do as Eliza lost it, nor did Rachel and Elissa (who were standing probably fifty feet away), nor did the little girl who was the pit stop greeter.

Rachel meant that she was blessed (that because she’s a well off American who gets to have the this awesome experience with her sister) and things sister but they took it to mean that she was rubbing getting eliminated in their faces. Things went downhill from there. Rachel and Elissa were genuinely trying to be polite and respectful but Eliza rolled her eyes at them and would later say she hated them. Phil didn’t know what to do as Eliza lost it, nor did Rachel and Elissa (who were standing probably fifty feet away), away as she raged about them), nor did the little girl who was the pit stop greeter.

!!! Season 31
* Mixed with heartwarming but the difference in Colin’s attitude is also really funny. Who’d have thought the high strung guy who gave us the famous “My ox is broken, this is bullshit!” line that almost got arrested in Tanzania would now be a calm guy who practices meditation every day, hugs other racers, and talks about putting love into the universe?


* Dandrew of Season 13 can either come off as one CrowningMomentOfFunny after another or one WhatAnIdiot after another. The two even pointed out how much they flat out ''sucked'' at the race and said there needs to be a Website/YouTube compilation video of all their mistakes. And there is, so chances are they were laughing at themselves.

* Season 7, seeing mastermind Rob (this after his two appearances on ''{{Survivor}}'', and already have played many mind games with the other teams including rule-abuse on quitting Roadblocks) over-strategize to the point where they were racing for last place. Rob and Amber along with Ron and Kelly had secured earlier flights than the ones Uchenna and Joyce and Merideth and Gretchen had already gotten. Rob decided to brag on this point to Merideth and Gretchen, which as a result had them scouring with Uchenna and Joyce to find better ones, and ended up with even a better arrival time than Rob had found. The look on Rob's face - after their arrival in the next city - when he discovers this is perfect.

** One from the editors. The penultimate had a task in which Racers had to use binoculars to look for a particular flag placed on an island. As each team performed this task, we were treated to a {{Binocular Shot}} for each. However, Brandon neglected to remove one lens cover from his pair of binoculars, so his particular shot was a single off-set circle instead.

* When Kellie & Jamie from Season 10 guessed father/daughter team Duke & Lauren were either brother and sister or dating, Duke quips that he's been trying to ask her out for years.
* From that same season, Peter's surprisingly accurate impression of Mary.
