Memorable MomentsEdit

Season 20Edit

  • Bopper and Mark had trouble booking a flight from Asuncion, Paraguay to Torino, Italy. Arriving significantly behind the other teams they came in last. Fellow contestants Art and JJ, who had come in first in that leg, had won ten thousand dollars and gave half of it to Bopper to help him pay for his daughter's medical bills. However, after they made this offer it was revealed that the leg was a non-elimination leg.
  • Mark struggled to learn a Bollywood dance in leg 9's Roadblock, causing them to arrive last but saved by a non-elimination leg.
  • Bopper and Mark had won the Fast Forward award during leg 10, but yet still got eliminated due to their much later departure time from the pit stop than the other teams'.
  • Bopper and Mark raced fellow contestants, Rachel and Dave the whole of leg 8 for first place and ended up getting ahead and winning, making them one of only three teams to win a leg in season 20. For coming in first, they won a trip for two to Hanalei Bey, Hawaii.
