•Father & Son team Mike & Mel White:
Mike & Mel White  gay father and son from Los Angeles, Ca. Might be wearing "blue" clothing.
Mel:
*James Melville White (born 1940) is a gay American clergyman and author. White was a behind-the-scenes member of the Evangelical Protestant movement during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, writing speeches and ghostwriting books for televangelists such as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and Billy Graham. After years of writing for the Religious Right, he came out of the closet in 1994.
*White graduated from Warner Pacific College. That same year, he married his wife Lyla. They had two children, one of whom is the actor/comedian and screenwriter Mike White.
Mel White admitted to his wife that he had always been attracted to men. He embarked on a long process of attempted "cures" for his homosexuality, including psychotherapy, prayer, Electroconvulsive therapy, and exorcism.
*Since 1993, he has devoted himself full-time to minister to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender people, working on their behalf in the media, in the political process, and with fellow religious leaders.
Mike:
*Michael White (born June 28, 1970) is an American writer, director, actor, and producer for television and film and the winner of the Independent Spirit John Cassavetes Award for Chuck & Buck.
*Born in Pasadena, California, White attended Polytechnic School and Wesleyan University. White's father is the Reverend Dr. Mel White, a former speechwriter for Religious Right figures such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. White is openly bisexual. His father, meanwhile, came out as homosexual in 1994.
*White was a writer and producer on Dawson's Creek and Freaks and Geeks and wrote and acted in the films Chuck & Buck, The Good Girl, Orange County, School of Rock and Nacho Libre. He also had a role in the 2004 remake of The Stepford Wives.


•Female /Female friends Jodi Wincheski & "Christie Volkmer" :
Jodi Wincheski from Houston, TX probably paired with  Christie Volkmer and are SouthWest Airline flight attendants.

**She was sitting right next to one of the contestants, my friend said she was a Kelly Ripa lookalike. This contestant had another friend sitting up a few rows, who she kept referring to as Chrissy.
**The lady also told the flight attendant that she and her friend Chrissy are Southwest Airlines flight attendants back home.
***She said she also had noticed one other team of two girls with backpacks and camera crews, which I suspect *may* have been the pair I (romaniafan) saw stalled outside baggage claim, but not sure.
****My friend said the racer sitting next to her on the plane had mentioned that others "from our group" had been on an earlier flight that day. And as I may have already mentioned, she was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her daughter that said "I love you wherever I go".

--Remember Michael's just a rumor post? About the father/son team from the LA area?
I can now confirm that this is no longer a rumor, :lol: :yes: 
--And in the biggest surprise of the season, we are going to have a totally deaf female racer, who must rely on signing, and who will require subtitling during the episodes.

--- Quote ---Just a rumor… (The Amazing Race 14)
September 30, 2008

I overheard a father/son talking about their upcoming participation in The Amazing Race season 14.  I don’t think they are supposed to talk about their participation, so I won’t get into a more specific descriptions.

i also recieved a reply from the blogger with more information:


--- Quote ---Got your comment… The son was pretty shy but the dad
was very outgoing. They seemed interested in finding
color matching stuff. If I remember correctly it was
all dark blue. The son was probably early twenties,
maybe younger. Dad looked like late 50s ish. The son
was somewhat aloof, but dad was very confident, and
seemed like quite the joker. I don’t think they were
supposed to let on that they were on the next TAR but
I specifically heard them mention it. (dad did anyhow)

--- Quote from: BlindFreddy on January 09, 2009, 12:08:13 AM ---Hey all, newbie here...
Firstly, I'd like to thank 'Puddin' for all the spoilers and hard work here over the various seasons.

Thought I'd share some possible cast info that MayanSun from SuvivorFever and myself came across when digging for Survivor: Tocantins cast.

• Meet the SouthWest Airline flight attendant(Kelly Rippa look-alike)...
Jodi Wincheski from Houston TX. Still working on 'Chrissy', her TAR partner.



• Meet Deaf male castmember Luke Adams 22, from Monument/Colorado Springs CO...possibly paired w/Margaret Adams(mother?/sister?) Luke attended Rochester Institute of Tech and acquainted w/Christy Smith of Survivor Amazon.


• Meet Victoria Pfeifer Hunt(46) and husband Brad Hunt(51) from Columbus OH. She's a tax assessor and he works for a electric utility power company. They both do adventure races/mtn biking/orienteering activities.

They might be the couple in this pic:

• And finally, the Auburn-orange team of Preston McCamy of Birmingham AL, graduate of Auburn U and Jennifer H of Columbia SC

Funny how so much of the entertertainment world is centered in just one area.  After transplanting myself from the midwest I was excited to see the celebrities in Los Angeles. I had no idea how prolific “the industry” is around here.

From Romaniafan:


--- Quote ---A few seconds later an Asian couple with backpacks came running through the doors.
Few minutes later two girls, looked to be in their 20s, came running out shouting at the crowd asking where the taxis were.
two slightly older African American ladies
another was two rather short men.
--- End quote ---

We also have:

Father/Son who planned on wearing dark blue (likely to be false IMO)

So so far, we have 5 possible team descriptions:

-An asian couple
-2 girls in their 20s
-two older black girls
-two short men
- and a possible father/son team (who could be the short men lol)

romaniafan:
There was also the perhaps late 30's or 40-something lady my friend was sitting next to on the Munich-Bucharest plane ("a Kelly Ripa lookalike", she said), and her teammate Chrissy (also est in her late 30's or 40's), supposedly both Southwest Airlines flight attendants!
