ImANewUser Amazing Race 6 is the 6th installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. This season features fourteen teams, some of which originally raced on the show, The Amazing Race. Unlike previous seasons, this season was hosted on a separate Proboards site.
Development and Filming
This season features the same route as Season 5, also spanning 40,000 miles and covering 5 continents.
This season became the first season to not have all teams complete the leg before the first team started the next leg: 8 teams started Leg 4 whereas 4 teams didn't finish Leg 3 yet; 9 teams started Leg 5 whereas Hera & Carissa and Kris & Hayden didn't finish Leg 4 yet. This season also became the first season where a team didn't finish the leg: in Leg 4, Hera & Carissa and Kris & Hayden were given clues directing them to the Leg 5 Pit Stop where they were eliminated for falling so far behind; in the final leg beepboop & Oswald fell so behind that upon finishing the Detour, they were given a clue telling them that the Race was over.
During the legs, there was only one greeter: a user named Sweet.
There was an extended Pit Stop on Leg 7.
Leg 12 was the first non-elimination leg in the series of the Race with no corresponding penalty.
The teams on this season were either racers on real seasons of The Amazing Race, a user/racer team, a team of two users or completely new racers. Rin & Mac originally appeared on Season 4.
In Leg 1, Yau-Man & Earl were thought to have quit the Race, but pulled through to beat Chris & Alex, who managed to outrun Rin & Mac. After Leg 2, David & Erwin became the first team to quit the Race.
Lyn (of SamKelly1994 & Lyn) also raced in Season 1 alongside Karlyn, making her the only racer to run the ImANewUser Amazing Race three times. SamKelly1994 proceeded to go on the hosting industry. So far, he has hosted several Amazing Race and Survivor games.
sun7kid & Rob became the first team in the history of the series to win four consecutive legs (they won Legs 11 to 14). They, alongside Dustin & Zabrina, were chosen to represent the season in Season 7.

Note 4: Hera and Carissa and Kris and Hayden, still finishing Leg 4 while the other teams finished Leg 5, received a clue directing them both to the Leg 5 Pit Stop in Mali, where they were both eliminated.
Note 5: Usually, ties for last place are broken. However, since this is a non-elimination leg, both teams were just "marked for elimination" instead.
Note 6: Stefani and James arrived sixth, but fell to seventh due to the penalty. Yau-Man and Earl arrived last, so there was no need to apply the penalty.
Note 7: FromCentralEurope and Charla arrived last. However, it was a non-elimination leg. However, unlike the other non-elimination leg, they will not get a penalty even if they don't finish first next leg.
Note 8: beepboop & Oswald had fallen so far behind that they were not able to complete the final leg. Upon finishing the Detour in Kaohsiung, they were given a clue telling them that the Race was over.
- 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.

- After they quit in Leg 2, David & Erwin were next to arrive. The dating couple were shocked to realize they quit.
- After a strenuous Leg 3, Chris & Alex were next to arrive. The best friends told the other two teams of the stress and weariness they had experienced last leg.
- After a long Leg 4 and longer Leg 5, Kris & Hayden and Hera & Carissa arrived at the same time, to the shock of the other teams. They then informed the rest about their bad flight delay and how they fell two legs behind, thus causing a double elimination.
- After Leg 6, teams fell asleep waiting for an eliminated team to arrive. When Kris woke up, she speculated it was a non-elimination leg.
- After Leg 7, Yau-Man & Earl arrived. The duo told the group stories about how fun Survivor: Fiji was. This prompted Rin to apply for the next Survivor season as soon as they get back home.
- After Leg 8, Samkelly1994 & Lyn arrived. Teams exchanged stories while Yau-Man, Rin, Hayden, Alex and Sam raced in the pool.
- After Leg 9, Stefani & James were the eighth and final team to be sent to the villa. The team recalled their past experiences on The Apprentice and both stated it was tougher to last this time around.
- After Leg 10, teams received a call from a stressed out Jeremy & Dani. They then joked over the phone that at least they didn't quit this time.
- After Leg 11, teams received a phone call from Dustin & Zabrina. The teams were shocked to hear from them as they expected some other team to call from Shanghai.
- After Leg 12, teams expected a phone call from an eliminated team. However, they grew tired of waiting and just assumed it was a non-elimination leg.
- After Leg 13, the teams at the villa received a call from Joseph & Bolo. The teams back at the villa then flew to the unspecified end city where they met up with the rest of the teams.
- After Leg 14, the eliminated teams pondered on their experiences and expressed their thoughts on the Final Three.
