TAR 18 Speculation and Discussion *contains Spoilers*
« on: November 17, 2010, 10:24:18 PM »
From two months ago:

The Amazing Race will be back! Although fans are still waiting for word of an official renewal from CBS for our favorite series, TAR 18 is apparently a definite GO!!

Plans for TAR 18 seem to be well under way. The next season of TAR will reportedly include a group of former racers from Season 12 onwards, and may already be completely casted. At least one round of "final" racer casting interviews has already occurred.

With the lack of any official TAR 18 applications, it has been widely speculated online for months that TAR 18 could be an "All-Stars" of some sort. While that term is not being used officially as of yet, it IS clear that we are going to have another chance to see some of our favorite (and perhaps not so favorite racers) in action again!

Filming is expected to begin later this fall.

Details remain the same.  :yess:

TAR 18 is a cast of former racers from Seasons 12-17*. Whether or not TPTB will choose to call this ALLStars or not is of course, in their hands. Some of the cast is certainly AS worthy, others, as in Season 11, perhaps will be debated.

There does seem to be a certain selection of teams who may have something they have wanted/needed to prove.... second chances, particular rematches, old rivalries revived?? Others may have been chosen simply because they were/are CBS favorites. One season may have incredibly  :ascared  been overlooked entirely.

But in any case, this should be a dynamite race!   :hearts:

As always, per RFF's practices, exact info on teams and possible start city will be withheld until it is believed that the teams are safely underway and it is possible to share without jeopardizing anyone's chances.  :tup:

Teams ARE sequestered, production IS on the move, so the wait should not be long!!

And... it appears there may well be a starting line task again as well...will we see the Express Pass return? Stay tuned!! :popcorn:



* except for one pesky rumor of "another" reality team that cannot be ruled out, but seems doubtful.

a source that must remain a secret for the good of all
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

Here are our speculated TAR 18 TEAMS! :hearts:


WHEEE!!




 (pictures are thumbnails from their first seasons) click-click

Season 12: 

Kynt and Vyxsin



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Season 13:

strangely, oddly, sadly omitted...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Season 14:

Amanda and Kris



Jaime and Cara



Kisha and Jen



Margie and Luke



Mark and Michael (? possible alternates?)




Mel and Mike



Steve and Linda (? possible alternates ?)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Season 15:

Flight Time and Big Easy (Herb and Nate)



Zev and Justin



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Season 16:

Jet and Cord



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Season 17:

Gary and Mallory



Michael and Kevin


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



For completeness sake, I will also say there have also been persistent rumors of a non-TAR team from another reality show being included in this race. I hope they are all just rumors... But the names that kept reoccuring were those of Hayden and either Lane or Enzo from BB, and of course, the ubiquitous Russell. :res:

Do you mean that those are the teams that you think are on the race or are those teams that have all been spotted so far?

There is a Globetrotters event in Orlando on the 27th of this month at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  There is a 50/50 chance that Flight Time and Big Easy could be there or not.

The official website of the Globetrotters has a list of events this coming week in Florida.

If this cast is real, then I would be so disappointed.

Boy what an odd collection of racers, and extremely shocking to see such a huge number of teams that might be from season 14 (sheds tear for no Toni & Dallas).

And very surprising to see Mel & Mike as Mike just got a deal for a new film to direct about a week ago.

I just wonder they will choose two father-son teams.

As I mentioned on the contestants thread about Flight Time and Big Easy.  With the Globetrotters being in Orlando on Nov27 and the race already started today, there is a little or no chance of them going on the race again.

Why is everyone getting so upset if the only three teams that have been spotted are Michael and Kevin, Kynt and Vyxin(spelling?) and Jaime and Cara?

Not all the trotters head out for every show. I saw one (At the state netball centre, Oh the irony) and neither Flight Time nor Big Easy were present.
