ImANewUser Amazing Race 1 (also known as TAR Female Teams 1) is the 1st installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. Simply known as TAR Female Teams during the time it ran, this season features fourteen all-female teams which originally raced on the show, The Amazing Race. This season was hosted in Forumsnet.


Development and Filming

The route spans 45,000 miles and covers 6 continents, featuring the countries of Montenegro, Ecuador, Thailand, Russia, China (Hong Kong & Macau), Georgia and Spain (Ceuta & Melilla), as well as the outlying territories/dependencies of Bermuda, French Polynesia, Abkhazia, Netherlands Antilles, Martinique & the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Every Yield this season came before a Roadblock. There were extended Pit Stops on Legs 4 and 11.

In Leg 13, Kami & Karli fell way behind the other two teams that footage of them completing the last two tasks were not aired.


All the teams this season have appeared on real seasons of The Amazing Race. Aubrey Sandel (of Aubrey and Jacqueline) is better known in her country as Aubrey Miles. Dustin & Kandice were previous beauty queens (Dustin was Miss California and Kandice was Miss New York).

The previous eliminated racers in this Race acted as greeters in Season 3 in the legs where they came last in.

Lyn & Karlyn, Wanda & Desiree and Debbie & Bianca 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 7 was a double-length leg with two Detours and two Roadblocks shown over two episodes. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the leg midpoint.
Note 3: Nancy and Emily arrived 3rd, but due to the 30-minute penalty, they dropped to 5th.
