At first glance, this season's cast is remarkable in their lack of remarkableness...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there isn't a single lesbian, gay, transsexual, transgendered, transvestite, bisexual, pan-sexual, poly-sexual, or asexual racer.
Everyone has all of their limbs intact, no physical or mental challenges are evident. :shocking:
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

I have always thought that someone's LGBT status is irrelevant to the race...and it is certainly not the first thing I need to know on meeting someone.

So if TPTB are finally focusing on our Teams' relationships without featuring whatever sexual orientation they may choose, then hooray!

I don't think a person's sexuality or disability makes them more interesting just because. The same with race.

On the other hand, 2 hairstylists in 1 season?    :lol:

Ya, I didn't explain that very well...
What I meant was, I don't recall a season where there wasn't at least one racer who's bio didn't use their sexual orientation or disability as a means to differentiate them from the other racers.
I don't judge people based on their disabilities or sexual preferences, but I think in the past CBS has used it to spark interest in the teams. Its interesting to me that they didn't do so this season.

OMG 2 hairstylists? Whats next? Florists?  :groan:

The stuntcasting is less blatant this cycle.

I will be interested to see the Arctic legs.

Was a little worried about the amount of media personalities/semi-celebs or whatever you want to call them, but I actually like the majority of the teams! Nat & Kat, another great example of beautiful people who can still be considered "regular" or "ordinary." Looking forward to seeing them all in action!

Not 2 hair stylists, 3 hair stylists.

That was the first thing that I noticed when I read the cast info.

Keep an eye on Thomas of Thomas and Jill since he wears a humongous wristwatch which should be easy to spot when we want to check on times.

Not one, but two beauty queens competing, of course, with not one but two blond beach beauties :hearts:
