Dating- Generic 20 years old-ish dating couple, sometimes bicker and party-ers
Dating- 24 years old-ish loud couple, shows tough love as they both are extreme occupation workers

M/M TEAMS:
NFL Players- 25 years old-ish, super-buff NFL players (secret superfans) :geekon:
Single Dads- 50 & 45 years old divorced fathers with kids; want to support their kids as much as they can, similar to Bopper & Mark, but more serious
Park Rangers- 35 years old-ish outdoors guys, chubby, fun-loving, secret hunters

F/F TEAMS:
Married- Alaskan-origin lesbian couple with style, health counselors
Moms- Confused Chinese/Taiwanese moms with barely any travel experience outside of China/Taiwan or the U.S., English as second language, funny with wordplay :lol3:

I was just thinking the other day it might be a fun idea if there was a team of nudists. Imagine how that would go down, lol...

I also have a list of 10 places I'd like to see on the race:
1. Canadian Maritimes or Newfoundland
2. Any country in the Caribbean (Saint Lucia, Barbados, Antigua, etc...)
3. GREENLAND
4. Wales or Northern Ireland
5. Andorra
6. Slovakia
7. Somewhere new in Russia (Kaliningrad, or somewhere new in Siberia, such as the far east)
8. Maldives
9. Tasmania
10. ANY country in Oceania other than Australia or New Zealand. (Fiji, Vanuatu, Kiribati, etc...)

I always thought of a Race completely bypassing the Atlantic and the Lower 48 by starting and ending in Alaska and Hawaii and traveling to Oceania > South Asia > Africa > Europe then looping back to North Asia.

If anyone here has seen "Expedition Impossible", you'd know they had a Blind Contestant compete, and he made it to second place.

Do you think it would be feasible to have a blind contestant on TAR? (With a seeing partner, of course)

I dont think that would work, considering pretty much every task requires eyesight.

the other partner is forced to complete it. For example in amazing race 14 luke wanted to complete the paragliding roadblock.. but it said NOTE: PARTICIPANTS MUST BE ABLE TO HEAR INSTRUCTIONS.. so margie had to to do it... i feel like something like this would happen as well

Well.. I've never seen any Roadblock that didn't require ability to see... :res: :res: Or, am I wrong?

Maybe the task that is possible is eating task. ;)

On the comment on blind contestants I'm half blind and am unable to drive because of it so if I was on the race my partner would need to do the driving.

That guy on Expedition Impossible was a beast! I rooted for them all along, but once the Boston Cops were eliminated, I really wanted them to win!

Scott & Chuck and Ari & Staella pissed me off in season 7 and 12. I didn't like their perdonalities, but it would be great for funny TV. I think Diedre & Hillary should return replacing Rob & Sheila.

Well, they weren't fast... at all... in any of the tasks in Brazil, but they would make a unique returning team. They may have learned from their TAR13 experience.

I liked Matt & Daniel, Ron & Tony, and Avi & Joe on their seasons. And I also agree that Ryan & Chuck and Ari & Staella would be entertaining. I felt really bad for Ryan & Chuck when they were eliminated.

Yeah, I liked Vipul & Arti too, but they simply didn't fit the requirements.

Okay, how about this instead: Make an 11-team roster composed of teams who were eliminated on the first or second leg.
