Peach:

You are entitled to your expression of why specific AR18 teams did not win their original seasons, but I have a few elaborationsand differences to suggest:

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Gary and Mallory were unable to avoid elimination after getting lost in Oman for over nine hours. - I agree
                                           
 Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": LaKisha and Jennifer missed out on a spot in the final three by minutes after stopping to use the restroom in China. - Not true, as they reveal on the video (see my post of 10:29am today in the AR18 thread in the Contestants superthread) states; t hey were beaten because Jaime and Cara got a better dropoff by their taxi driver and were able to find the pit stop in back of  NIao Chao, Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Stadium
                                                           
Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Jet and Cord fell behind during the final leg and couldn't recover, which ultimately led to a 2nd place finish to winners Dan and Jordan. - the reason they fell behind was that Dan and Jordan were smarter in getting moved up to first class for an earlier exit of the plane on arrival into San Francisco International Airport

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Amanda and Kris were unexpectedly u-turned in Siberia by Margie and Luke and were eliminated from the Race. - I agree, although you did not reveal that it was the first (and only so far) Blind U-turn.

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": During the final leg, Jaime and Cara fell victim to a bad taxi driver in Hawaii and lost to Tammy and Victor. - I agree totally with this

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": The Globetrotters incurred a four hour penalty in Prague after failing to complete a Roadblock, which cost them a spot in the final three. - I agree; Big Easy could not compute that there were only 24 possible combinations and discover that Franz was the only name that made sense.

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": After struggling during their final leg in Alaska, Ron and Christina finished in 2nd place to TK and Rachel. -yes, but the reason was that Christina was slower than Rachel in the final Memory Challenge ROADB

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Kent and Vyxsin self-destructed in Italy and were unable to fight back to stay in the game. - they made a bad mistake in not U-turning the only team behind them (Nathan and Jennifer) at the Kabutar Khana in Mumbai when they got to the deciding U-turn ahead of them but did not know that

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Zev and Justin finished in 1st place during their Cambodia leg, but quickly discovered that they had lost their passport and would not be able to continue in the Race. -  I agree

Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Margie and Luke entered the final challenge with a substantial lead, but quickly fell behind and finished in 3rd place. - they did get to the Surfboard Fence Memory Challenge with a substantial lead and they still had it after Luke had placed 9 of the 11 surfboards; his inability to get the last two right gave the lead and season victory to Tammy and Victor
                                             
Why they're returning for "Unfinished Business": Mike and Mel found themselves lost in Thailand courtesy of a bad taxi driver and were eliminated from the Race. -  I agree

and if I remember correctly, Michale & Louie Blind U-turned Joe & Heide... so Amanda & Kris's Blind U-Turn isn't the only one so far... (though I can see why you overlooked Season 16's as most of us want to forget that season! lol)

Don't worry too much, you're not really missing anything. It's just some of the teams talking about why they "deserve" another chance.

They started in Palm Springs? That's an unexpected twist. That probably explains why we had no starting line spoilers. While I haven't been there in about 20 years, Palm Springs is more spread out and even more laid back than Los Angeles. I wonder if they had to drive all the way to LAX or if they taken there by bus or van once flights had been assigned.

Watching them measure Liechtenstein on a moped should be interesting.



Palm Springs is about 100miles from Los Angeles its around a 2hr drive by car/bus/van/ect.  United Express flies between Palm Springs and Los Angeles but I don't see them doing that.  But were the teams at the gate area or check-in counter at LAX Airport?  I am glad Liechtenstein will finally be visited and it all sounds too exciting.

On the CBS online schedule, one can see fifteen days in advance. By this logic, we should be able to see the title of the premiere by Feb 5.

Odds are some of us will have access to that information via our cable/satellite providers up to one or two days before that if last season is any guide. :)

I guess someone should be on the lookout then.

The comments by Bertram can Munster can be applied equally well across the board to Top Chef 8 All-Stars, which is also a season with primarily the top non-winners and other favorites who are all very talented.

PHIL KEOGHAN, HOST OF CBS' "THE AMAZING RACE," IS COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU!


Phil Keoghan will embark on a 10-city tour starting Feb. 3 in Los Angeles and culminating on Feb. 18 in New York City to promote the launch of the new season of THE AMAZING RACE: UNFINISHED BUSINESS, which premieres Sunday, Feb. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. For the first time, the Emmy Award-winning series will be broadcast in HD.


THE AMAZING RACE: UNFINISHED BUSINESS will feature 11 former Teams who fell short of winning the $1 million prize during their first Race and are returning for another chance. Fan favorites such as the Globetrotters, the Cowboys and the Goths are coming back for another trek around the globe.


During his upcoming tour, Keoghan will also host screenings of hisfeature-length documentary, "The Ride," which follows his 3,500-mile bike ride that he took from Los Angeles to New York City. Joining him on this grueling, 40-day adventure were his wingman Ben,best friend Scott, his father and a former California Highway Patrolman. His mission was simple: to test his 41-year-old mind and body like never before.

Keoghan's coast-to-coast journey also generated more than $500,000 for the National MS Society through local outreach and the support of GNC.


"The Ride" can now be seen on the big screen: Regal Theatres is hosting screenings of the documentary in the following 10 cities, with all proceeds being donated to the National MS Society:
