    During the Early Show post-show interview, Colin proposed to Christie which she accepted. They were expected to be on the All Stars (Season 11), but they didn't make it because Christie was pregnant. The couple also gave one of their prize trips to fellow Season 5 racers Dennis and Erika.

    SPOILER: Chip and Brandon (Season 5) hold the record for most Roadblocks performed by a single person - 10. The record is unlikely to be broken because of a rule limiting the number of Roadblocks a person may perform beginning in Season 6. In response to criticisms regarding team members (particularly females on co-ed teams) who didn't perform any of the Roadblock tasks, the producers changed the Roadblock rules starting in Season 6. Now, no one team member may perform more than six Roadblocks. Teams would have to choose carefully who would do the Roadblock. This was modified again in Season 9 when the limit was increased to a maximum of seven. It changed again in season 18 as team members could not complete more than five Roadblocks prior to the final leg. The final changes occurred in Season 24 as the rules such that up through leg 10 individual racers were limited to performing a maximum of 6 Roadblocks, but the final 3 Roadblocks on legs 11 and 12 were not subject to the limit.

    Season 1 had many unique features that were changed or would not appear in later seasons: 1) The introduction of each episode featured Phil's voice giving a brief synopsis of the show with theme music in the background and the presentation of the teams. Future seasons would then simply have the theme music with the presentation of the teams. However, Phil's synopsis was absent in one episode. 2) Unlike in later seasons, Season 1 did not show running placements of teams on screen during each leg of the race, showing only the names and team identifier. Team placements were only shown when they checked in at the Pit Stop at the end of each leg. In addition, host Phil Keoghan greeted only the last team to check in at each pit stop. In future seasons, he would greet all teams at the end of each leg. 3) Route marker flags were yellow and white. In future installments, the flags changed colors to red and yellow so that teams could spot them more easily. The only exception being a leg in Vietnam, where the flag was white and yellow with a black stripe, so as not to be confused with the Vietnamese flag. 4) Clue boxes tended to represent the culture of the local pit stop. For example, the clue boxes in Zambia were a bamboo cylinder. 5) In every single leg of Season 1, the detour always came before the roadblock.
