Wow! Again great job! =D

What is their relationship? Sisters? Mother/Daughter? I can't seem to know. :lol:

I'm just glad to see a team that doesn't appear to have possibly been recruited.

Ditto. And it looks like a mother and daughter to me! :yess:
To me, too.  They look way too much alike to be aunt and niece.  I'm going with a mother/daughter team, as well.

This means we have a whopping THREE parent/child teams this go-round (Kenny & Kevin, father/son, Gary & Mallory, father/daughter, and now, Andie & Jenna, mother/daughter)!  We'd have the full set if they'd cast a mother/son team, too!  Still, it's a record for this show!  First, a record-breaking four women's teams AND THEN a record-breaking THREE parent/child teams (just after the previous record-breaking TWO of TAR14's Mel & Mike and Margie & Luke).

For the record, Jenna and Andie's relationship remains SPECULATION, there is no evidence either way.

So WAY too early to start saying we have 3 parent/child teams, okay? We like our facts confirmed first, and we have the FACT of two parent/child teams, but the third remains SPEC only at this point.

So NO record breaking claims yet please Paron....facts only for now.

Still gonna say they're mother and daughter, though, until I hear otherwise, though.  Sorry.

Oh, but you go on ahead and find your proof of otherwise, though.

It will interesting to see if they are a stepmother/stepdaughter team, now that we KNOW that they are not a mother/daughter team.

A new and different twist for TAR.

We're overdue for some different familial relationships, such as the step-parent/step-child, or aunt-uncle/nephew-niece, or even in-laws; we had some of these in the family edition, but that was groups of four related in some way by blood or marriage, and we haven't had them in 2-member teams.

With the information that team red involves a blended family, I think the odds are high for one of these three new categories of relationships to make an appearance.

Well, now that we know that Andie & Jenna aren't mother and daughter, I'd be down with them being aunt and niece or stepmother and stepdaughter.

Just saw survivorsucks,someone saw tatooed team in Hong Kong.

Dunno if this helps y'all, but I saw a couple running from the HK airport to the Airport express train with a cameraman and another guy (producer I'm assuming) on Saturday. The guy asked the train attendant specifically for some sort of bus, so I'm guessing a clue told them they had to take something specific. Anyhow, the guy had distinctive hair (dreads or something similar) and the girl was heavily tattooed.

Team Grey... I don't see any dreads??
Did this one ever come to fruition?  I've been wondering for weeks.

If Kiruna pans out, heres some things to do-

SPECULATION

The Kiruna Ice hotel- Built in Jukkasjärvi  each winter since 1990 and has become a major tourist attraction.

That may not work due to timing (I'm not certain how long the ice hotel stays after being built, but producers have been known to "creatively adjust" the schedules of things like the Holi Festival, so why not?)

Every winter the Snow Festival is held, and every summer since 2000 (The city's centenary) the Kiruna Festival has been held (See notes for Ice Hotel)

A key industry of the area is Iron Ore and much of the town is dependent on mining- Possibly a task revolving around that?

Kiruna hosts the Sweden Spaceport, and the Institute of Space Physics

The church in Kiruna, built in 1912, is one of Sweden's largest wooden buildings. It has separately been voted Sweden's best looking church and the foremost Swedish pre-1950 construction.


All that above is unconfirmed, completely speculation, and probably nowhere near the truth

Some other "cool" facts about Kiruna:
Its above the Arctic circle, so on June 1 they have 24 hours of daylight.
Home to Börje Salming - best Swedish hockey player ever!

3 flights from ARN to Kiruna on June 1:
NAS 3761 dep 10:25 arr 11:55
SK 1042 dep 11:07 arr 12:31
SK 1044 dep 13:25 arr 14:40

I don't have the actual arrival time for NAS 3761 - but it is interesting to note that it changed departure gates in ARN which could account for the teams running around the airport.

Even their creativity may have a hard time to stand up against mother nature. The Ice hotel usually closes around April due to melting.

I think they have an Ice-bar open year round in a climate-controlled room. They also have Ice bars scattered around the world and these have been visited by AR (and ARA) already.

To follow up on myself regarding the Ice hotel. The Ice they use make all the sculptures etc in the hotel is actually harvested in the spring and then kept over the summer in their "ice factory". This is open for visitors and you can try to make your own Ice sculpture. This could make a very cool roadblock.

But all of this is of course only speculation.
