:'( So sad to read in the news that the Chilean volcano "Puyehue" is causing the cancellation of pretty much EVERY flight from south american countries such as: Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, Peru and Bolivia.  :'(

I wonder how much this will affect the race if they were planning to come over here....

If anything it will delay the race possibly? South America is almost needed to be visited.

Generally speaking summer races won't hit South America, though. It's more than likely to be a Europe / Africa (maybe) / Asia race than anything. Plus they could just as easily adjust the route as needed (much like TAR 15).

What happened for the TAR15?

The swine flu outbreak caused some locations to be shifted (I believe Korea for Japan, and some locations in Europe?).

Really which European locations? I wasn't aware of it.

Yes, the article can be read here.
Not sure whether or not to believe it. He bases this reasoning on his opinion that "CBS shows are increasingly relying on returning cast members".

IMO, I don't really see TAR creating another repeats season after they just aired one, unless they are turning into Survivor.

Even Survivor has yet to air back-to-back all star seasons

I stand corrected. :lol:

Is he overlooking the obvious clue that TAR19 had applications and casting while TAR 18 did not?

I'm thinking season 20 would be more likely if they would go that route.

Let me state the obvious. AR11 came after 10 seasons. AR18 came after another 6 seasons. We can expect the next Amazing Race All-Star or whatever synonym CBS/WRP wants to use for a season with returning teams somewhere around Amazing Race 25.

I also think Andy is just giving a sarcastic opinion. He's funny that way. But I DO hope that TAR doesn't go the way of Survivor and decide to do some sort of All-Stars or returning racers every other season. It's already annoying me on Survivor! And I was already mad that they did Unfinished Business after only 6 seasons of newbies!

asar,

I agree with you that Colin/Christie, Rob/Amber, Dustin/Kandice and Eric/Jeremy are among the finest teams that have ever competed in a U.S. Amazing Race.

I have an additional suggestion, which is Zach combined with any strong female racer. If we limit it to the U.S. then I would choose Rebecca of AR6. However, if you open it up also to Amazing Race Asia racers, then Pailin would be an excellent partner for Zach.

I also think that Nat and Kat have earned the right to go up against the very best teams of the Amazing Race.

Don't forget Meghan and Cheyne. No other team has won as many legs as them in a single season. They were never in danger at any time during their race. The same could be said for Rob and Brennan.

Colin and Christie are one of the finest teams to ever race? ???

Colin and Christie are not one of the best teams to ever run the race but Colin is the best competitor ever on the race. He is hands down the best to ever run on this race.

Well he seemed more like an obnoxious control freak to me :lol: I don't think his approach really helped him at all. In fact moments like the ox and paying the cab driver would have gone a lot more smoothly without his temper problem, JIMO.

The E. Coli outbreak in Germany may cause some issues as far as locations.

I reed in some place that the race will begin in Oklahoma City.
