Of the Red Girls, why does the blue female look older and the rose girl like 22 and the other 40? Is that just me? Maybe its just the angle...Can someone else help me with that?

Maybe they are a mother and daughter?

Also, they could be team 11 (tag) if their cameraman's letter corresponds to their team number. K is the 11th letter of the alphabet.

They don't look to have the same nose, do they!

I wouldnt guess twins.  Maybe sisters or mother/daughter.  Tough to tell without a better shot of the one's face.

Any thoughts on the pink team? They dont look related, but the brunette looks several years older than the blonde.

Do the contestants were the same coloured shirts for every leg?

No. They do for the starting line, but after that, it is up to them if they want to continue matching or not. To help the producers identify them, teams do have matching bandanas of a specific color that they either wear or hang from their bags.

Omg, from the photos so far it looks like this season is a second TAR All-Stars... All-Star Mactors that is!!  :lol:

Really? I totally disagree. Except for possibly 2 of the 11, I think they look surprisingly normal.

But then, we haven't really "met" them yet.

Thanks peach! And also, I also disagree RichinSydney. They look to be a great cast with minimal mactors (we usually get them on Survivor) but we don't yet know them!

I don't get a lot of mactor hunch from most of this cast, maybe only form of the younger co-ed teams.  I don't think we'll have a lot of mactors this season, not more then a regular ones.
The only thing that bother me a little is the fact the all 4 female teams seem to be caucasian and in their 20's (I might me mistaken) and most look like friends. The lack of diversity could be a problem.

Except that the cast looks fine to me.

I get the feeling that one might be a mother/daughter...A young mom and daugther like a 18 year difference  :tup: but thats just what the older lady looks like, I could be mistaken its only 1 photo!

All I hope for are these guys weren't mostly recruits...always good to have fans on the show!
At least the one known stunt-casted team may actually be competent...

True, we don't know them and maybe my definition of a mactor is different but all of the females I have seen so far are young, attractive with tight clothing. Not that I'm complaining!  :-[ I just don't see that they were chosen for personality and brains as opposed to their looks.

The thing that strikes me is how young the overall group appears.  Other than the "*2 Dads," none of the racers look 35+.  Looking at the pictures of the Green Team, it's hard to believe either of them made the stated 21yo age requirement by the time filming started. 

*Assuming Yellow Team is father/daughter

I thought I read that the age requirement had been lowered permanently, not just for last season's Caite.

Anyway - good job as always, Peach.  Reading this forum makes expectations for the new race exciting  - to see the race as it unfolds before it actually airs.
