A bit about the Whites here from The Watcher that includes a shout-out to RFF.

Tech note: I found it through Twingly, a search engine from Sweden that includes blogs and microblogs; I found this from a Pasadena lady through the microblog search. (previous posts included "I think my car hates me" and "Suspecting the barista gave me decaf" which is why I usually don't bother with Twitter  :lol:)

We are finally able to "meet" Jennifer, who is racing with Preston McCamy.

She is Jennifer Hopka, from Columbia, SC.  She was apparently a contestant in the 2003 competition for the 50th Anniversary Playmate, and was in the documentary, The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Playmate Search.

Oddly enough, she is one of several reality TV cast members to come out of Columbia. Others include Brooke Jackson (TAR 13), Jaime Dugan (Survivor China), Jamie Hill (TAR 10), and Ben Fagan (Pirate Master winner).

Hmmm, she's not deaf...  ;)  (:;) ...but ultimately she may lead to me going blind. :-[ Hope someone pushes her sports bra off a ledge.

Any possiblility on getting an updated list of contestants. Highlighting the "knowns" and the still "unknowns". Also, how does it compare to the initial lists from a couple of months ago.

Today has been a good day......  :ghug:

Puddin and I have been working on this tonight, and are pleased to say that we believe that the female half of our Asian dating couple is Tamara Jih (Tammy).

She is a resident of San Francisco, graduated from Los Gatos High School in 1999, Stanford in 2003 with a B.A. in International Relations, and from Harvard with a JD in 2006.

She is an Associate Attorney in a firm dealing primarilary with business litigation (trial lawyers).

She also speaks Mandarin.

This is the contestant spoiler/speculation thread, not the contestant chatter who I love/who I don't thread. :meme
Once we have the cast reveal, each contestant will have their own thread where you will be able to put all those well-considered comments.

Let's try to stay on-topic, shall we?

And thanks to some extra Detective help from Slowhatch this morning, it now seems that Tammy's race partner may  be her older brother Victor.

He too has an impressive educational background:
Harvard Law School, J.D., 1996: magna cum laude; Board of Student Advisors
Stanford University, B.A., 1993: with distinction and honors in Political Science and Ethics in Society; Phi Beta Kappa

And he is also a Partner in a prestigious law firm, specializing in Business Trial and Litigation and Entertainment and Media Litigation!

:whew this could be one impressive team!





and another picture of Tammy:

Amanda Blackledge is racing with her boyfriend, KRISTOPHER (Kris) KLICKA:

He's 25, from San Diego. A recent college graduate.

Victor Jih.   35.   Attorney.   Los Angeles, California. Brother / Sister
Mark Munoz. 35. Stunt Actor.   Los Angeles, California. Brothers
Mike White. 38. Writer / Actor. Los Angeles, California. Father / Son

It's not Krysti Coursey. "Christi" is the correct spelling.

Christi Day is from Dallas and not a flight attendant, so it's not her.

Soon we won't even need to have cbs release the teams!
We have most of them already!

Since we haven't had many sightings of the red-haired girls, they are probably going early.
