I'd like the task designers from pre-season-12 to come back
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Peach (or really anyone) when did we get the person who had previously designed tasks for Survivor?

Oh gosh...

found it!

SEASON 11
From wiki:


Challenge producer Alan Bishop was hired to design new tasks and challenges for this season. Bishop was responsible for challenges in past installments of Survivor (Vanuatu, Guatemala, Panama).

All right Peach, spill it!  All this teasing is not worthy of you.    :'(     As you say, "speculation goes here".  Start speculating! :<)

:lol: I think Peach said that because...

"Will they?" and "Won't they?" are words we oftenly use in speculating. :lol3:

I don't know whatever it is georgiapeach is basing her speculation on (or the specifics), but I've been involved with TAR as a viewer from the beginning, and I think the circumstantial evidence supports her speculation.

We've seen no evidence of an application period for TAR 18; at the time, the application period for TAR 11 was not the normal, and it became apparent soon thereafter that TAR 11 application period that something was afoot, especially from the Racer community. In addition, there are some programming factors that points towards the speculation as having some weight. These include: the impending 10th anniversary of TAR's filming its first season (February 2011), the fact that CBS had a 10th anniversary edition for Survivor, the unusual solicitation of ideas, feedback etc, from Jerry Bruckheimer *whose company rarely does thinks like this), the fact that Phil recently raised a discussion of a celebrity format at this particular time, and I'm sure I'm not remembering all of them at the moment.  But there's an old expression -- "Where there's smoke, there's fire," and mein Gott, there's been a lot of smoke lately.  So to me the circumstances plus the fact that we know from observation and experience that peorgiapeach has her sources and her means of getting information about the production side of the Race, I trust GP's judgment about what is going on. I'd just wish there was something concrete about TAR 18 to come out of CBS, Jerry Bruckheimer, or World Race Productions, to alleviate the anxiety level about the spring.

Yup. Actually, he is a player here in the Fantasy Games thread, and quit the game he's in about a month ago, I believe? ???

Hmmm......  from Phil's suggestion, I get All Stars versus Celebrities?

I am both intrigued and fearful at the idea.

Season 8 was a Family Edition season.  That might be tough.  I'd love teams from Seasons 4 & 6 -- as long as they don't include Jonathan the Jerk & Victoria.  I don't ever want to see them again!  Jonathan gave me a terrible headache and who wants that experience again?   :meow:

If this is indeed a former-racers race, Brook and Claire might not be there (if they are likeable) because Claire swallowed a watermelon seed. :'(

It's an old wife's tale Cocoa, not that i don't believe you she's pregnant, but she certainly doesn't have a watermelon. Someone's baby maybe...

All I can say about that is - YUCK, please no. :groan:

All-Stars 2 or a Fans vs. Favorites type of thing is okay, but no celebs - we've had enough celebrity teams in the past for more than one Celebrity Edition already. :res:

I can't speak for why there are no application forms up on the CBS website, but during the premiere a casting call was announced for the Philadelphia area at what I believe is the new casino in town. It was on Wednesday, and I would've gone, but I don't know what to make of the age limit now that we've had a 20 year old and a 19 year old, even if they are minor celebrities.
