Hey, fellow Amazing Race fans! I'm Linusblanket2100, one of TAR's biggest fans (or so I tell everyone :P). This blog is based on an idea I thought of while watching past seasons of the Amazing Race. What if each episode in the season was switched so that teams who placed first would be last, teams that placed last would be first and the teams within those boundaries would also be switched as well? Basically, if the order was abcde, when it is reversed it would become edcba, with e replacing a. I decided to try it with the new TAR season. I really love comments, so please leave a comment on if you think this order is better or worse compared to how the season is really playing out! This blog will be updated on the Saturdays following the episode air date.
In this version, the Save was awarded to the team that came in 4th on the first leg (Shelley and Nici). However, they did not use it.
Also note that U-Turn uses uses are not represented in this table.

Green means that the team won the leg.
Yellow means that the team did not arrive first, second-to-last or last.
Orange means the team arrived second-to-last.
Red means that the team was eliminated.
