Question 2: Do greeters audition? Do they get paid?

There's TARCon which is organized by fans every year (?) after the February-May season (?), and they invite racers to join. Some racers also make reunion parties at the finale, like what Jason & Amy did.

Greeters are hired by production, so they probably get paid. Audition I don't think so, but how they choose them is a mystery to me.

TARcon was held after every season, until season 23. I don't know if one was held after season 24, as the site's home location online (the forums at televisionwithoutpity.com) was closed by Bravo a few months ago, and I've not seen anything about subsequent events.

Racers do have their own group, and have been known to plan events for the start or the end of various seasons. These are private events, and generally aren't open to others except by invite. CBS has in the past at least invited the final three teams to either New York or L.A. for the finale, and to appear on a CBS show for the check presentation to the winner, but again, that doesn't seem to be happening these days.

Something to keep in mind, while TPTB did organize a tenth anniversary event in 2011-12, that was unusual for them, as there are now approximately 500 living Racers! Even a Racer get together now becomes a major production.

There's way too many dating/engaged/married teams for me to handle, but in general with fusioned racers...
DATED AFTER THE RACE: Brennan and Emily (TAR1), Tara and Alex (TAR2), Flo and Drew (TAR3), Eric and Danielle (TAR9) with obvious proof :lol:, Azaria and Christina (TAR12) as mentioned on Unfinished Business, and Dallas and Starr (TAR13).

Would have been a good team to bring back. What if they were on TAR18? If Christina got to F7 with Ron, I think they might have won

Yes, it is. As far as I know, Tim said OK but Marie declined. There're 2 explanations: one says that it is enough to play once on TAR; the other is that Marie disliked how she was edited on the show.

Yes. They were asked, they (Marie) did decline, Tim would have loved to race again.

Whether we can say they were "replaced" by Leo and Jamal is more problematic. It is possible that Leo and Jamal would have been  asked anyway, how the final cast teams would have worked out in that case is not clear.

I would think that JJ/ Margie & Luke replaced Tim & Marie. Alas, we'll never know for sure.

What other teams were invited for all of the "returning" seasons but declined, cut, alternate, etc? Survivor Wikia has a whole page on that, I am curious about TAR.
And they really should bring teams from old seasons or make a returning cast season after.. 10 seasons instead of 6

Hmmm...let's end this discussion. Who was asked or not remains private unless the teams involved have shared the info themselves.

Thanks!

This question has been circling my mind for a while now.

Does production require teams to color coordinate their race outfits or is it the teams' choice to do so? Since TAR20, I've noticed all teams have been dressing in the same t-shirts/activewear or the same hues during the race. It seems teams can't wear anything way mismatched like, for example, Ronald's personal "Who's Your Daddy?" clothes while Christina wears her handpicked outfits back in TAR12.

After watching TAR Canada's recent episode, on the last task before the Pit Stop (canoe to the Pit Stop), can a team use their Express Pass on it? If yes, who should they handed it to?
