Sounding like a broken record here, but I'm still chasing the photos.

I wonder when it could be. Your full of suprises here. But can I ask...Are you going to get them before cast release?!  :duno:

 TV Guide confirms a deaf contestant, doesn't say if male or female though.

I really hope so, but I doubt it.

Cast release can't be that far away can it?

I'm just glad to hear we have a deaf contestant. I'm half way to winning my bet that the blonde on the Auburn team is the one.

From the CBS message boards , does this work with our Guilin info? plus short men  :yess:

Quote
   

 We were in the Guangzhou China airport November 17th around 11pm and saw a team of two caucasian men wearing backpacks running through the airport with a cameraman and producer in tow. They were in the baggage claim area and were in a hurry to find something and stopped at hte information desk to ask directions. The cameraman was working to capture every move. The men were both short and appeared to be related. One had a fanny pack that was visible with red/yellow/back horizontal stripes on it. We went up to them and said "Are you with the Amazing Race?". They said "No", but we are waiting for cast pictures to see if they were telling the truth or not. 



and more from the above poster ....

They were both rather short (5 ft 5 or less my guess) with brownish red hair. They looked like they were related. I think at least one of them wore glasses. They were "thick" build but not fat. They were wearing shorts and tshirts and both had on back packs. They were very much in a hurry and looked stressed. There was a camera man that was filming their every move and a person carrying a microphone that was stuck in front of their faces as well. Hope that helps

Maybe if we had some real spoilers I wouldn't have to resort to photo chop. (:;)
I can't believe there are no bloggers in Siberia with cameras - worse than Portland  ;)

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:
http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/new-2.jpg

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

We'll see what else turns up...enjoy the show guys.
BlindFreddy
Edit to add Luke's age of 22
Edit (1/10/08) to delete the Marc Cardinale pic and ref, since Marc kindly showed up to state his non-cast status. I'm killing the pic from the host source as well so it will disappear from a couple other re-posts by others. I hate to impose publicity on innocents. Sorry 'bout that Marc.

Thanks for the info BlindFreddy. I checked facebook via the link above, and Preston (Auburn guy) is friends with Margaret Adams, Brad Hunt, Jennifer H, and Jodi Wincheski. They all know each other from somewhere and by the evidence above, it fits with the TAR 14 cast.

Margaret Adams is also friends with a Mark Munoz (who is a friend of Jennifer H )& Michael Munoz.

Michael Munoz friends with Brad Hunt, Jodi Wincheski & Preston McCamy as well.

Munoz from Los Angeles and maybe Hispanic?

(nevermind the Munoz's already noted here by Mayansun)

Thank you Blind Freddy! and :bigwelcome

Okay:

Here is an article mentioning the Luke Adams/ Chrissy Smith connection...
http://www.ntid.rit.edu/media/full_text.php?article_id=300

Quote
Luke Adams, 18, of Monument, Colo., met Smith last spring when she visited his high school. He liked what she had to say about being successful if you plan, practice, have patience and persevere.

“That's something I'll remember all my life,” Adams said.



And Rochester has a technical college for the deaf:

Quote
RIT - National Technical Institute for the Deaf - Technical ...NTID is the world's largest technical college for deaf students. It is one of 8 colleges of Rochester Institute for Technology in Rochester, NY.
