Here's the thing. ...... Thats' why her picture Milanissimo posted, looked familiar.

info removed

IDK! I was just curious because the name looked familiar.....

They are an adorable couple and would be very fun to watch, loved the video. But they are not one of our TAR 19 teams, and applications are often reconsidered for more than one season.

To avoid ruining their chances to ever be considered, am removing their info and video.

But I wish them luck, they are cute! Thanks for sharing, if you have any questions, please email me at the address in my profile. Thanks!


LOL! They won't get on, but whatever GeorgiaPeach.

Introducing 1/2 of the Pink Team: Kanoelani Gibson

She was the runner-up in the Miss America 2004 pageant to Ericka Dunlap of TAR15.



Some more photos...





I'll try to organize them better when my computer decides to work with me.

not denying that the orange couple in 7a is karl and kay malone...but the guy looks way to young to be karl malone.  and to be honest, it does't really look like him.  could be just me being confused though.  and sorry peach if this is in the wrong page.  i posted it here since the caps were in this thread.

I agree with this. It just doesn't look like Karl Malone.

I'm kind of uneasy with our identification of Karl Malone. The guy in the pictures doesn't look 6' 9" tall. He looks at most 4 or 5 inches taller than his wife. Maybe his wife is well over 6' tall, but that would be pretty unusual for a beauty pageant winner. Also, while the other racers are at varying distances from the wall, comparing them to the darker lines on the wall in the background, the general feeling is that they aren't that much shorter than the Karl Malone in our pictures. However, it could be the camera angles since they are at various locations along that wall. The security guard near the door appears to tower over everyone else since presumably he is closer to the photographer and nearest to the wall.

On the other hand, our identification of Karl Malone has gotten a fair amount of attention and has been in the Salt Lake City newspaper. If Karl is just going through his day to day life back in Louisiana (I read that he works for Louisiana Tech University these days), I imagine someone would have called it to his attention. In that case, I expect we would have heard a denial from him about the rumors of his being on the Amazing Race. The lack of a denial by this point lends some credibility to our identification.

Just on this set of pictures, it would be hard to tell because there really isn't a good clear image of the face of the putative Karl, and its hard to get a perspective of how a 6'9" man would look in those spots, especially with a cap on all the time. I don't see enough there to say that it is not Karl, so I'm giving more weight. for now, to the earlier pictures that led to the identification.

On the other hand, there are better photos of Ethan in this set, and finally being able to see his face, with his longish, dark, curly hair, re-enforces in my mind that the identification of Ethan is correct.

So that's my $.02 worth of comments.

Don't get me wrong.  in the pics, the guy looks SUPER tall.  In fact, looks about 6'9 to me.  but the cap with his face shown pretty clearly doesnt look anything like him.  karl is 47 and in recent interviews (i am a sports freak), he looks every bit of 47.  The guy in the pic looks nowhere near 47.

Maybe you guys want to wait until you see all of the pics before deciding??

Here is a quick preview before I get the rest posted.

In this comparison I set up the stick figure on the Malone media shot and directly copied and pasted it on top of the shot from LAX.

It looks like a match to me!

OK, I'm convinced too. I thought it might end up being an issue with the camera angles and the distances in those earlier pictures and apparently that was the case. In these latest pictures, Karl is clearly about a foot taller than his wife and about 4 to 6 inches taller than Phil.

Is Phil really that tall? Karl Malone is 6'9, so that would mean that Phil would be anywhere from 6'3 to 6'5 by your estimates. I always thought he was more like 6'0 to 6'1.

Given my track record last night, I'd say Phil is 4 to 6 inches shorter with a margin of error of 3 feet.  :lol3:  Take a look at the pictures and estimate it for yourself.  I have no idea just how tall Phil is. It isn't something I ever thought about before last night.

One thing I wasn't doing with the batch of Teipei airport photos that came online yesterday was to say that those images weren't Karl Malone; I was saying I wouldn't make a decision based only on that particular set for that particular identification. I do agree that the more recent set Peach posted is much more conclusive on the identification.

Some thoughts about whether it's Karl Malone - don't know if anyone has seen this YouTube video from last summer - The Gerrard's with Karl and Kay Malone.  Gives some clearer side views of Karl than in the pix above, plus shows their relative heights.  I'm still new to RFF, and I'm a little unclear whether there's any problem providing a link to this video (which is why I put in the title), so please let me know if I've made a mistake. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eDyTkBXQDY

Based on her eyebrows and ear shape, not to mention general features, it sure looks like Kay Malone in the most recent pictures above arriving at the mat.  I'd say the picture from LAX of him looking at the camera sure looks like Karl.  The one above, as they come into the mat, not so much, though if you look at him on the video - maybe.  He does seem to look different in general if you catch him from the front vs. the side, and maybe the picture above just got him at a bad moment or a bad angle.  The mustache/beard is his style, the relative heights of him and her seem right.

Have to agree that in the photo with Phil, he doesn't look quite as tall as you might expect.  However, he's got on a good size backpack, so maybe is slouching; at 47, could have lost a bit of height; might never have actually been 6'9" to begin with; Phil could be wearing cowboy boots.

If it's not actually the Malones, it's a couple that sure looks just like them!

I agree with this. It just doesn't look like Karl Malone.
I can't comment on whether it is Karl Malone, but I can comment on the height of Kay Kinsey Malone. She appears to be about one foot shorter than Karl, which would make her about 5'9" maximum. There is no way she could be 6' or taller based on a picture I have seen of her in standing in front of him.
I'm kind of uneasy with our identification of Karl Malone. The guy in the pictures doesn't look 6' 9" tall. He looks at most 4 or 5 inches taller than his wife. Maybe his wife is well over 6' tall, but that would be pretty unusual for a beauty pageant winner. Also, while the other racers are at varying distances from the wall, comparing them to the darker lines on the wall in the background, the general feeling is that they aren't that much shorter than the Karl Malone in our pictures. However, it could be the camera angles since they are at various locations along that wall.

In that case, I expect we would have heard a denial from him about the rumors of his being on the Amazing Race. The lack of a denial by this point lends some credibility to our identification.

Kay Kinsley Malone is about 1 foot shorter than Karl Malone, so her maximum height would be 5'9" and she cannot be over 6' tall.

To settle the height of Phil Keoghan definitely,
Height: 5' 10" (1.80 m)

My impression re: their relative heights is a little different.  Her head seems to be level with his shoulder in both pictures , which would make a 12" height difference (and her 5'9" height) reasonable (and also looks about right in the video).  From the picture of them running to the mat, it's pretty clear he's a very big guy, and in that picture it definitely looks like he's much more than 4 or 5 inches taller than her.

What I also found interesting was the ring she was wearing on her left hand in the video. She's got a couple on, but one of them is pretty chunky, and it made me think about the ring he's wearing in the LAX picture that people were wondering about.

More of a question to me is Phil's height in the picture at the mat.  He looks a little taller than I'd expect relative to both of them, if it is the Malones.

Good point about the lack of denial about this identification!
