You better watch out you two, I'll sticky you ;)

Hey so we only have 9 teams but so --we lose the pinkys & Hippies and 2 other teams somewhere between South America & God only knows where and then the African American teams in Siem Reap?

So something isn't right? We have pictures of 6 teams in and 5 leaving Cambodia sans the African American team ???

I don't agree that the petite redhead is one of the F/F team ..she goes somewhere else but with who? Makes me think there was no African American team afterall? Justin did not see them in Santiago but that could mean anything, like they were ahead? I dunno?

My guess at it is there are 7 teams left, not 6. We only saw 6 boats in Cambodia, and I think the 7th team could have went and retrieved a fast forward, thus no boat would be needed. Also, that team would be ahead, so they might had not been seen at the airport going to India.

Thats not true, if there were 7 teams then there had to be 7 boats, 6 teams 6 boats etc. FF or not.  And yeah theres always a chance that a team was ahead, but way ahead?

Someone (was it Jason?) mentioned an African American crew member. It is possible that the observer simply saw this person doing something during setup/practice run thru of the task, perhaps with another dark haired crew member standing nearby/helping, and assumed they were a Team. Might be grasping at straws here. Otherwise they had to have been eliminated while in Siem Reap, and in Santiago they would have been either mistaken for crew, or one of the teams in the second group that Justin didn't see

I'm thinking the red head girl could be part of team texas
Hmmmm maybe so..I was reading through the thread and Jason wrote that the one female of the f/f team had reddish blonde hair ....blame the different lighting's maybe? sun vs fluorescent?

The converse could also be true - we could have another Croatia situation where a team is hours behind the frontrunners (or a team who misses a connection and gets the pity clue like Uchenna/Joyce).

The hair is also appears more blonde after looking at it, along with the shows.

Now as for this 6 boat thing, can anyone say Daja' Vu?

I doubt it Puddin.  If Bilal & Sa'eed were African American (which I honestly don't know) then every season has had at least one african american team.  If they aren't  that season was racial diverse with an Indian team, an asian team and the ethnic background of Bilal & Sa'eed.

Season 1:  Two African American teams
Season 2:  1 African American Team and a Hispanic Team
Season 3:  1 African American Team
Season 4:  1 African American team
Season 5:  1 African American Team
Season 6:  1 African American Team
Season 7:  1 African American TEam
Season 8:  1 African American Team
Season 9:  1 African American Team, one Hispanic Team
Season 10:  1 Asian Team, 1 Indian Team, and one Maybe
Season 11:  1 African American Team, 1 Hispanic team
Season 12:  1 African American Team, 1 Hispanic Team, 1 Asian Team.

While we are missing a couple of teams in either photos or eye witness accounts.  We don't have anything pointing to ethnicity.  So I would hazard a guess just on past ethnic backgrounds that we have at least 1 African American Team.

I was thinking about the headbands, and it makes sense there has to be more teams unaccounted for. We are missing the red, green, and orange pairs I think. ROYGBIV are usually the top choices when it comes to putting colors to teams, and I would assume white would be used as an extra. That would leave 7 teams in that airport.

It can be argued that were missing the "pink" and black as well.

6 teams entered Cambodia, Siam Reap, 5 left.
Mom/Son "white"
Frats "yellow"
F/F from Texas "blue"
M/F couple? "purple"
M/F Bro/Sis "?"

one more thing ... remember All Stars route? It was discussed that the first 4 teams were eliminated in South America making sequester in , was it Mexico?, easier for TPTB, travel wise, not counting Teri & Ian of course but who later showed up as the last team to be sequestered. Anyway the point being that TAR13 could be done the same way, have the first 4-5 teams eliminated in South America for sequester reasons, just thinking out loud   blahblah

John Vito & Jill Ecuador
Kevin & Drew   Chile
Mary & David Chile
Rob & Amber Argentina
Teri & Ian Mozambique

If not mistaken, Bilal & Sa'eed are Asian (Middle east)

Season 2:  1 African American Team and a Hispanic Team
Season 3:  1 African American Team

Both seasons had two black teams.

TAR2: Deidre/Hillary and Shola/Doyin
TAR3: Tramel/Talicia and Andre/Damon 

They lowered their racial quota after season 3 to only 1 black team per season. But it was two black teams in the first 3 seasons.

I would think TAR would have an African American team this season unless the casting directors thought the applicants weren't as stellar as in years past.

You might count TAR10 as a double season as well. Sa'eed (Rudolph) and his partner Bilal are African-American Moslems: one born and raised, one convert.
Quote
TVGuide.com: Were you all raised Muslim or did you convert as adults?
Sa'eed: I was Christian before and converted to Islam in the year 2000.
Bilal: I was born and raised Muslim in Cleveland. Most of my family are Baptist and Christian. It's kinda ironic now because with maybe 12 cousins and 11 aunts, four of my aunts and four cousins are now Muslim. But back in the day, growing up, we were like the black sheep of the family.

Thats it I am never going by memory again.

And its funny the two African American teams I remembered were the ones to get the boot early.  Deidre and Hillary not the twins.  And Tramel and Talicia (team TNT) and not Cop/ Fireman duo.

Lord I am getting senile.
