He almost makes up for the horrid human being that is Jaime. And for having to watch Kevin treat his father like useless luggage. Again. I don't mind the Globetrotters so much since they can be entertaining, I just don't respect them from a RAAAAACE point of view.
I'm very happy to see Zev/Justin and Kynt/Vyx back, but I was expecting it. A little disappointed with the possible lack of Toni/Dallas. I liked Keisha and Jen, though I know the only reason they were back was because of the rivalry with Luke and Margie. Booo. I don't mind either team as much as I mind Jaime because they can be competent racers and stick to being ***holes to each other as opposed to being Ugly Americans to the people of the world.
Nat and Kat have probably won TAR17 and they're doctors, not mactors, they can't take another month off.
Brook is a camera-mugging nuisance so no thanks.
If they're doing Australia as a first stop, can it please be Tasmania? Or an even smaller island in Oceania? It just seems like not enough of a shock to the system to people who are for the most part very well-traveled and also experienced racers to have them in Sydney or Melbourne.
My secon-biggest YAY after Gary is westward-going race! Woohooooo!
