But this race is a great cast if you think about it:

ALLSTARS:
Kynt/Vyxsin
Ron/Chris
Kisha/Jen
Jamie/Cara
Margie/Luke
Mel/Mike - bit odd
Flight Time/Big Easy
Jet/Cord
Gary/Mallory

SECOND CHANCE
Amanda Chris - screwed by UTURN (good racers!)
Zev Justin - screwed with passports lost (otherwise good racers!)

The only thing missing is KenTina tbh!!!

So I was just going to ask: Do we have the reality team that is not from TAR racing? (Like Russell :lol:?)

I have nothing against those two, but having an Amazing Race: NO Bickering Dating Couples Edition would be fantastic! Maybe they'll be nice to each other like Kynt and Vyxin.

And Gary/Mallory reported in the lead. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Get that Express Pass, Gary!

Maybe It's just been a while, but I don't remember Amanda & Kris bickering on the race at all. I don't get why people don't want them on the show.

I didn't say I don't want them CAST in the race, I just don't want them to win it because they were fairly bland and I have plenty of other teams I'd rather see in the race for much longer than them. They're the only ones who have the potential to be the eternal bickering couple once KF sets in, but from what little we've seen of them, it's probably not going to be the case. I still think it's truly AWESOME for TAR to not have abusive jerk boyfriends and/or dysfunctional dating drama for once. Our cup runeth over. I'm not actively rooting against Amanda and Kris. I save my disdain for Jaime.

Jamie brings all the drama of a bickering couple in one package. We should all save our disdain for her.

Not every bickering couple is also a KKKendra. On the scale of disdain, KKKendras rank much higher and Jaime is right up there.

So, I take it that Michael and Kevin are not on this season. Am I correct?

Yes, and it was painful to watch. (And also a relief when by the end of the race you could see a real turnaround, not a Nick-type one-leg Ghana copout....)

But it was in no way in the same league as Johnathan shoving his wife or Canaan trying to shove his gf to the point where she screamed for HELP from strangers or as Rebecca and Adam or that passive aggressive jerk who actually did get dumped at the end of a leg and we all cheered for Sarah. Not even in the same ballpark. It's also not the type of abusive relationship we see repeated over and over each season to the point where you start to think there's some sort of epidemic of jerkboyfrienditis.

They RARELY make enough genuinely good tv to warrant their inclusion every damn season. One example I can think of is that couple who had the Epic Tomatoe Pile Meltdown in Barcelona, to this day one of the funniest TAR moments ever. I think her name was Jennifer, I don't know, I only remember her awesome WAIIIIIILING at him while getting pelted with tomatoes.

just a reminder that in their original season, Jet and Cord sometimes had navigation issues, but they were really good getting assistance from the locals, and they had a knack of finishing tasks quickly and making up time. Perhaps one of the fastest teams ever with that skill.

And I think they, and almost all of the other identified teams will have benefited skill-wise from a prior run in the Race. It would be interesting to see if these teams avoid things such as not completely reading the clue, and being aware of their surroundings in performing tasks so as to not overlook things that are there and needed to complete tasks.

I think two teams of them not on race.

And that would be Mark/Michael and Steve/Linda

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

If there was a Starting Line elimination, who could possibly have been eliminated?

Mark and Michael?
Michael and Kevin?
Steve and Linda?

hmm

If there was a starting line task, doesn't mean someone was eliminated, either.

Surely not. That was one of the dumbest things TAR ever did.

I'd be pissed if Jet and Cord half assed everything and just went onto the race for publicity...

i mean didnt one of them JUST get married and is suppose to be on a honeymoon?

If thats they case... I wish they declined so that another team could join
