They gave me bad vibes from their intro video.  Add in that Brooke had no good things to say about Brent, and I'm wary of them.

They seem to have a "dark" aura, in general. Maybe it's just their clothing. :lol:

I don't know if she knows what the world is, or even where the US is, or if she knows that maps are common in life...


What is she doing in The Amazing Race?

She had a moment of brain freeze...it happens. Three years ago. :res:

But she went on to be able to laugh at herself, and that is a great gift. She has done some very funny bits for Jimmy Kimmel:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11/14/caitlin-upton-miss-teen-s_n_357843.html

I think she'll be fun to watch...hope she gets the chance to kick some butt!! Revenge is sweet. :funny:

At least she acknowledges how messed up that situation was, and is motivated to show that she's actually better than that.

While I fully respect Brooke as a alumni Racer, it may well be the Brent and her were like oil and water, and that Caite and Brett are more compatible for whatever reason. Doesn't make any of them bad or evil per se. It'll be interesting to see what the local media has to say as this is the third team from this area to make a cast in the last four seasons. Haven't seen anything yet.

I don't know.  In their video, they seemed to have ZERO chemistry.  They just looked uncomfortable with each other.

She seemed very uncomfortable being interviewed, the way she paused between every two words and took a deep breath -- but she's hot  :neener:

I agree. I don't think they are not the bickering team of the season.

Does CBS set up teams facebook fan pages or is it up to the racers to make one? I could not find Catie's and Brent's.

Well, they don't have to make one if they don't want to. Joseph & Heidi were the admins of their fan page, so I would assume they made it themselves.

I do think this is a team I don't like AT ALL, and thus, they'll make it far... :(

I don't know about her age, but although she had been 25, I wouldn't have taken her for the race.

What better scenario could CBS and World Race Productions ask for than a former beauty pageant winner who flubs a geography question at the 2007 Miss Teen USA Pageant? She is a lot smarter than most people assume from the pageant winner resume. She could also be as athletic as Dustin and Kandice were. It would be total redemption of her image is she was able to win AR16. To do that I think she needs to stay positive in her relationship with Brent.  If she does, they will have earned their victory.

I'm not saying anything else about her bad appearance in Miss Teen USA... It is just that I don't see them a natural couple. There's something like Brent-talks-just-so-that-it-doesn't-seem-that-she-is-the-only-member-of-the-entire-team-and-this-team-is-just-AWFUL-for-me...

So if you are in the Atlanta listening area, tune in!!
