After going through all of this sort of speculation, including the methodology of choosing, over a period of years for what became season 11, I'm not getting into it this time around.

As I indicated early on in the TAR 18 speculation thread, what we get this time is going to be based on whatever "pattern" or method of selection the cast that TPRB decide to use.   And either it will be cast in a better manner this time around or it won't.  I'm not going to spend any of my energy speculating with zero information, which is all we have it terms of specifics.  Trying to read the tea leaves isn't productive for me.

Last time around, the route and the tasks made up for some of the casting choices in season 11.  I'm just going to sit back and wait and see what comes of it. No stress, no worries!

it would be nice if they did something like Survivor Heroes vs Villains where they bring back old challenges (of course if it is an all star race)

Currently trying to find a magnificent way to earn me a spot on The Amazing Race

That idea was brought up in the run up to season 11, but that didn't happen. All we've seen is the one switchback.

It would be fun to re-create single legs from each season with the same tasks in the same locations, even if this mean those came from before season 12, and have the teams all come from after season 11. Then we'd see which returning teams had ever really studied the past of the show and drawn the lessons they should have from those earlier seasons.

But truthfully, I don't expect to see that.

Honestly, I'd love that, but at the same time, the spoilers will be very obvious since detectives can easily get information (by means of locations and maybe perhaps teams since this is AS2) and they don't want that to happen.

But 1 leg full of Amazing Race memories would be awesome. :tup:

I hope Flight Time and Big Easy are in the race. They are true All Star racers, and entertaining to watch. To me there were a few teams I actually liked, and I pretty much stuck around just to watch them race. I think all in all I liked like 2 teams including them, the other being Zev and Justin.

So yeah hoping Flight Time and Big Easy are back. It wouldn't be an all star race without them.

I think people want new things from TAR. I'm really excited to wait and see if this is going to be an allstars indeed..

Personally, I want Zev & Justin back, since I could relate to them.  I have Asperger's Syndrome and it would be nice to see Zev & Justin avoid the error they made with their possessions this time!

I thought this thread was supposed to stay free of wishlists (including fantasies, dreams, etc.)
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

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.

This makes a lot of sense, with all of that it would be a big surprise to not see an all stars or celebrity this time.

I'd like to see them again too.

Regarding my post from September 24th -- we did get a press release out of CBS confirming TAR 18 for the spring, with no mention of application periods or the normal casting process.

An anvil couldn't make it any more obvious at this point. Now it just a question of who has been cast -- and I'm impressed by the total lack of rumors or leaks from the Racer community. They've learned when to say nothing.

These lists people are putting out look surprisingly similar. It will be interesting to see how close we are to the real cast.

Is anyone here familiar with that survey that Bruckheimer put out about favorite teams?

I think that the cast will be similar to what most people have here. How can they not put in likeable teams that raced well?

I remember for season 11, that Phil said they weren't looking for the best racers, they were looking for the most outstanding and memorable teams. Not sure whether that criteria would apply for this season though.
