Opps, Sorry Chill, I just saw that you spotted this in the other thread  :groan:

In the it's a small world corner...  Nick says:

No way! That's too crazy! I do know Jonathan. He replaced me in the show one of the last times I left it, when I went to DC to do a show called GIANT. So he and I never really worked together, but we hung out a little bit.  He's a super nice guy. Really smart too.

It's funny, cause the pictures you guys have of him doesn't really look like him to me. It's WAY more hair than I'm used to seeing on him. Although the glasses are right...

It's an interesting coincidence at a minimum.  Just as the coincidence of TAR 16's Brent was a former boyfriend of a TAR 13 Racer. And how some of the others in recent years had direct personal connections to earlier Racers. It's funny how this sort of thing has come up going back to TAR 5 or 6.)

But I'm impressed that the Princeton-affiliated folks were able to pick up on everything and confirm it with their own reporting that quickly.

And how some of the others in recent years had direct personal connections to earlier Racers. It's funny how this sort of thing has come up going back to TAR 5 or 6.)

Indeed, it's been a common occurrence recently. Especially in the pageantry circuit and South Carolina circle. Sources indicate that both of these will be represented again by STEPHANIE SMITH, a MISS SOUTH CAROLINA USA 2009 who interestingly succeeded JAMIE HILL of TAR10, just as JONATHAN SCHWARTZ succeeded Nick Spangler of TAR13 in the Fantasticks.

This is the turquoise couple.

STEPHANIE SMITH, 22. SALES RECRUITER. JACKSONVILLE, FL (Originally from Goose Creek, SC).
CHAD WALTRIP, 25. OPERATIONS MANAGER. JACKSONVILLE, FL.

Relationship: Dating, just moved in together this month.



*Chad played college football (defensive line) for five years (02-06) at Rhode Island University
*Stephanie is a former make-up artist and model.
*The two work for the same company in Jacksonville.

*In a 2007 article by Edward Fennell, Stephanie described herself as "driven, receptive, personable, compassionate, [and] energetic."
*Her hobbies are swimming, kayaking, cosmetology, modeling, and singing.
*Apparently, Stephanie tried out for American Idol in the past. There are a few videos available of her singing.

I have never had anything to add about contestant spoilers, but on Team Blue, the beautiful Eurasian looking female looks extremely familiar to me. I believe that she is a beauty pageant winner or finalist. (not that I watch a lot of those shows) I could be wrong, but I have seen her before (or her twin) and I have it in my head that it is a competition.

And looking at the two females on that team, they could well be beauty pageant alumni. Hope this isn't out of line for this thread. Might be more speculation than fact. (the memory ain't what it used to be)

About half of the female cast in any season of the race are beauty pageant alumni. CBS (or maybe it's an American thing... I don't know  :duno:) as some bizarre unhealthy fixation with those girls.

I have received a tip that Team Yellow may be IS the current Miss Kentucky, Mallory Ervin and her father.

Could anyone help with this? A current height might be helpful....

I think that's a slight exaggeration, but there have been seasons where beauty pageant winners were in abundance. (TAR 5).  It does seem, though, that that group usually make up all or half of better-performing teams. which I think has more to do with it.  TAR has wanted to see an all-female winning team for a long time, and the casting of four all-female teams does seem to be a bet that maybe there's a fortunate pair in this season's cast.

I do find it curious that casting does seem to have a fixation on South Carolina beauty queens, though.

And is that Miss Kentucky of Miss America or the Miss Universe/USA/Donald Trump-owned one?

What is with all the BQs?

Well, at least she's with her dad. I enjoy Parent-Child teams!

This one is affiliated with Miss America.

SC casting has an EXCELLENT team.

Was just coming back to say that based on this photo and the pics from the airport, I felt pretty confident in saying we had a match.

But :jumpy: to Mac and the help from a friend!!
