No, really!  You can even see some gray hair around the ears of Dad.  Like this for example:

Goodbye Internet!
May 21, 2010
Tomorrow morning I will be leaving on a trip overseas, and Iím super excited! Iíll be a part of a project that Iíve been preparing months for :) The downside to this though is that Iíll have no internet for the next four weeks that Iím gone. Yikes!! No internet for four weeks is going to be difficult, especially having to leave you guys (this is where you go ďawwwĒ). I shot a video about me leaving and I couldnít upload it tonight for some reason, but I have a friend that is going to upload it for me soon (probably monday).

But yeah, I wanted to give you guys a heads up before I leave, this is going to be a crazy trip (wish me luck!) When I get back though, Iíll be right back to posting more videos, no doubt. Also, the web series Funemployed will be releasing soon, so episodes will be coming out while Iím gone.

Thatís it for now, hope you guys have a wonderful start to your summer, gotta get back to packing for this trip. Bye Guys!!

Kevin


The videos will tell the story.









Many thanks to wenger for the tip!!

Wow, an Asian father/son team!  Hopefully, they capture the same magic as Ronald & Christina!

And they're from my state, TX! :hearts:  Just . . . ten or eleven hours away, though.

Thanks to some new friends, I have been sent an enormous influx of information from sightings in Boston....many teams photos and descriptions!! :hearts:

But sadly all of this info needs to be correlated and closely reviewed before posting, and I am in the midst of a long work stretch. So it will come, but may well be the weekend before everything is up.


Meanwhile, I can confirm that there are 4 F/F teams ( red, pink, peach, lime green), what appears to be a Father/daughter team (yellow), a M/F team with loads of tattoes (grey/black), and 3 M/M teams (African-American, Asian {Wu's}, and young males)11 teams...and no Mother/son team.

And awesome job Mrs Shrek and Neobie on the video compilation of teams!!

Colors seen at the airport are apparently somewhat different from the boat ones.

It looks as if the age limit has been permanently lowered under 21. This is the second consecutive season with a contestant who will be over 18 and under 21 at airing.

Not much use for us now I guess but probably useful when TAR17 starts airing?

I wasn't really trying to single you out,  suzuken, there were loads of posts today blindly requoting unnecessarily. It makes it hard to read, and puts an unnecessary strain on the server.

Also, we are going to try to be a little stricter this year about inappropriate posts....if you have a spoiler, or are discussing a spoiler, no worries. But ongoing spec in the spoilers thread may be moved once, after that your posts will just be deleted...so pay attention to where things go please. The big complaint I hear about RFF is that the spoiler threads are full of chatter, so let's try to keep them on target. For people like me, trying to catch up on pages of posts, a lot of blahblah is hard to read.
