I think he means in the original AllStars.

Yes. But by the time they came back, Kevin & Drew were not as strong, they were like cancer patients (especially Drew, come on losing to a girl especially Charla is very embarrassing).

And now... for today's joke we are insulting small people. Very funny (:colealert:)

I think Kevin was recovering from a pre-Race injury that was significantly impairing his movement at the time TAR AS was filmed, but he went ahead and Raced anyway because he didn't want to disappoint the fans.

plus Drew stepped off an unseen curb in the dark at the very first route marker in Quito and hurt his shoulder.

No Brent and Caite, YES Carol and Brandy please! (okay, this is a wish, sry for that.)
I believe I read in one of Brent & Caite's post-race interviews that they are no longer dating and live on opposite sides of the country, so I doubt they would appear on the Race again. (Granted, that didn't stop John Vito & Jill for All-Stars 1, but JV&J weren't constantly at each others' throats like B&C.)

They need a mix of funny (Brooke and Claire) , villanous (Carol and Brandy), and heroism(Christina and Richard) and a side of a rivals

I didn't meant to insult Charla, I was making fun of Drew.

Is anyone checking around LA for filming permits? Ihis time of the year I would think a Florida, Nevada or California start would be likely.

Depends on the locality the filming is starting from.  Every state and local area does things a little differently. Since California, Nevada, and Florida have been used in the past; I wouldn't be surprised if for the second straight time, they go somewhere they have not used to start or finish the Race.

Houston, Texas?

Houston is actually a great place to start. Battleship Texas and San Jacinto Park for the start....a nice drive to the airport all the way across town. Flights to S. America, Europe and Asia from the airport there.......a great exit and end city.

Now might be a good time to take a practice run out to the airport...
Maybe try to take a few discrete non-blurry photos of random passengers - pretend they are racers.
If Homeland Security says anything - just tell them you're a TAR detective - they'll understand. :taze

Seriously though - you may spot production people moving into position... look for large cameras.

As far as places that haven't been used; they haven't used Atlanta -- not even on TAR:FE. And as Peach can tell you there are some great places that can be used as a start or finish line, such as Centennial Olympic Park (you know how Bertram loves Olympic venues), Stone Mountain and its park (largest granite mountain east of the Mississippi River and largest urban park in the US), the Auburn Avenue Historic Site (Martin Luther King, Jr. and Ebenzer Baptist Church, the Georgia Aquarium (the world's largest), Zoo Atlanta (now regarded as one of the best zoological parks in the world), and others.

And Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airports has connections headed almost everywhere in the world (Africa, Asia, Europe, South America, and elsewhere in North America, and usually considered the world's busiest airport in number of passengers and flights.

This is a very interesting point. Atlanta sounds like a great start line.
