ImANewUser Amazing Race 3 (also known as TAR Female Teams 2) is the 3rd installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. This season was originally considered the second season of the series, but with the inclusion of Season 2, it became the third season. Simply known as TAR Female Teams 2 during the time it ran, this season features fourteen all-female teams which originally raced on the show, The Amazing Race.

Production

Development and Filming

The route spans around 51,000 miles and covers all 7 continents. Previously unvisited countries include Denmark, Italy (Sardinia), Argentina, Cyprus (Northern Cyprus), India (Andaman & Nicobar Islands), China (Tibet) & Malaysia. Previously unvisited territories include Greenland, the Cook Islands, Falkland Islands, the Canary Islands and Gibraltar. In Leg 6, teams visited Adelaide Island off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. This is the first time the Race has visited Antarctica.

Legs 12 and 13 were tributes to all previously visited destinations in Malaysia (Ampang Park Shopping Center in TAR 3, Taman Sri Hartamas in TAR All-Stars, Menara Kuala Lumpur and Bako National Park in TAR Asia 1, Monsopiad Cultural Village in TAR 4) and Hawaii (The Big Kahuna in TAR 3, Kamaka Air in TAR 6 and 11 and Shipwreck Beach and Kaumalapau Harbor in TAR 11).

The greeters on this Race were the eliminated teams in Season 1.

In Leg 4, four teams ended up lost driving in the Siberian countryside. Cheerleaders Kellie & Jamie broke off from the other three teams, causing them to fall further behind and ultimately finishing last. In Leg 5, four teams checked in at the same time. This is the first time there was a tie between four teams. This was also the first time there was a four-way tie for first.

Cast

All the teams this season have appeared on real seasons of The Amazing Race. Sharon & Michelle are sisters of Season 1 sixth placers Christine & Tricia.

The previous eliminated racers in this Race acted as greeters in Season 5 in the legs where they came last in.

Monica & Sheree and Kim & Leslie were chosen to represent the season in Season 7.

Note 1: There was a tie for last place, so a tiebreaker was conducted to settle the tie.
Note 2: Leg 8 was a double-length leg with two Detours and two Roadblocks. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the leg midpoint.

  • Red means the team was eliminated.
  • Blue means the team came in last at a non-elimination leg and was thus "marked for elimination," meaning that if that team did not place first on the next leg, they would receive a 30 minute penalty.
  • Green means the team won the Fast Forward clue. A green leg number means no team took the Fast Forward this leg.
  • A < means the team was Yielded. A > means the team used their Yield. A <> indicates an unused Yield.
  • Matching colors of symbols indicate teams who worked together during part of the leg as a result of the Intersection route marker.
