I thought it said somewhere on the application that the race course is decided at least partially based on the things that those who apply say they will or won't do. I was under the impression that the race course was decided after contestants were chosen. Do we have any evidence that it is designed before the teams are chosen?

alittlebird is correct Hooky. The course and locations are chosen well before the contestants...think visas, film permits, all the complicated logistics. Teams are sometimes being revamped even a couplke of weeks beforehand.

Yeah, that's what makes sense in my mind...but I just know I read otherwise somewhere a while ago. Oh well.
