Thanks Heather. Jenny and Erin being on the race is only spec at the moment as Channel 7 may have used other finalists on their pilot promo instead of the actual final teams. From the photos so far I can't really see any all female darker haired team, but then again we only have far off photos from the starting line.

Keep on looking! Can't be long now till Channel 7 have a promo out. They are already adverising some other shows for next season. Just depends if they will show it early or late 2011.

Cowboys sighted in Israel, heading for Rome, Italy! :hearts:




is it just me or could there be another team/teams standing with the cowboys in the photo as the man stood infront of the the cowboy with the black hat kind of looks abit like one of the alpha male team
So if you care to find me, Look to the western sky!

New info: Based on the information about Erin Mcnaught's boyfriend, Nathan Jolliffe, I  have updated the contestant summary.

I believe they are the team in front of the intersection in Johannesburg, based on the media speculation that his teammate is fellow model Tyler Atkins.

In Johannesburg (15/11)


Unknown team, at least one male. UPDATE: I suspect this team to be Nathan Jolliffe and his partner, currently believed to be Tyler Atkins.

Thanks to Heather7, it was found that Richard Marc Toutounji recently added Renae Wauhop as a friend on Facebook.

Renae was the runner up in Miss Universe Australia 2010. She is (or was) a truck driver and roofer, quoted on News.com.au back in November 2009:

"I've always been a tomboy, I love camping and fishing but I'm bored of seeing all these models being in it - what do they do? They haven't been there and they haven't done that," Geraldton-raised, Perth-based former roofer and truck driver Renae Wauhop said".

From what I saw in the Channel 7 pilot promo, Renae did sound very tomboy like! I would say she 95% confirmed as the taller member of the blonde team.


After looking at Tyler's twitter page, I've found he's been tweeting to Renae, so it seems she more than likely is a contestant  :tup:

They may also know eachother from the model circuit, but the evidence is starting to pile up. I imagine a cast release will be coming within the next few months, probably as TAR 18 wraps up.

Great find BayBay  :wohoo: Here's the full article:

Quote
THEY'RE blonde, sexy and pack a punch - two Perth pals, boxers and part-time models who will represent WA in Channel 7's The Amazing Race Australia.
Sam Schoers and Renae Wauhop are one of three WA teams in the first Aussie version of the program, which follows the same format as the phenomenally successful American adventure series. It will be hosted by Grant Bowler.

The other WA teams are comprised of Big W co-workers Anne-Marie Brown and Tracy Read and married Geraldton bikers Dave and Kelly Miller.

In 2010, barmaid and painter's assistant Wauhop was runner-up to Jesinta Campbell in the final of Miss Universe Australia. Schoers works at Burswood Casino as a VIP executive host. Both have boxed competitively.

The Amazing Race Australia's month-long shoot took in four continents, 12 countries and 23 cities.

Confidentiality agreements meant even the contestants' families didn't know they were criss-crossing the globe, fulfilling their challenges.
.Schoers told friends she was lying low at her father's farm in New South Wales and Wauhop claimed she was on a modelling assignment in the US.

The pair's mix of brains and brawn created a formidable team, in what Schoers describes as "the ride of a lifetime".

The Amazing Race Australia is expected to screen later this month.

I'm loving the fact that it seems the regular people outnumber the models and media personalities.  :yess:

The first few posts in this thread have been reorganised and cleaned up to remove duplicate information.

The first post is now the contestant list with the ongoing updates.
The second post is now ungrouped sightings in which a team cannot be confirmed. These should be in chronological order.
The third post is saved for conclusions that we can draw from interviews and other media. (Eg- "Siberia was cold")
The fourth post holds the teams NOT racing, but appeared in the promotional footage released by Seven.

If anyone spots any errors in the posts, let me know and I will fix them.

Good work, I am still holding down the fort at the timeline thread and will be updating it as information comes to hand!  :tup:
Timeline has been updated with team info except I cannot decipher between two of the couples! Help would be appreciated to track down sightings and cross reference!
