    The story arc for Sarah Reinertsen and Peter Harsch in TAR10 showed them as a newly dating couple whose relationship collapsed due to Peter's unkind treatment of her. However, years after the race ended, Sarah confirmed that she and Peter were not and never had been dating, with that relationship being created in the editing room. In Leg 2 of Season 10, Peter and Sarah switched their Detour task twice. This is the first time a team has switched Detours twice and still finished first in the same leg. In Leg 6, the colleagues already in last, upon arrival at the Detour, received a clue instructing them to go directly to the Pit Stop. This has not been done to a team since Andre & Damon of Season 3. Additionally, Peter & Sarah were not received by a greeter at the Pit Stop. This is the first time since Pat & Brenda of Season 1 that a team has been eliminated without a greeter at the end of the leg. In the same leg, their car had a handicap sticker from the state of California.

    In Season 5, several challenges were edited out of the program since they did not affect team placement. The first was a nut finding Roadblock in the markets of Dubai during Leg 9; The clam-hunting task in the Philippines, presented as a normal challenge, was originally one of two Detour choices. The yellow Detour clue is visible in several Racers' hands, particularly Kim's, and the second Detour choice was never presented on-air. In the final leg in Canada, there was a task where the teams had to find a clothing store in Banff and acquire jacket and caps. There is also a Roadblock where they have to build a tepee. Both these tasks were edited out of airing due to time constraints. Photos of both tasks were found in the official website.
