I had forgotten about Kanoe. Was she confirmed?





How do we confirm an identification without their help?  :duno:

If it is Kanoe Gibson, I think the partner looks quite a bit like Kanoe's predecessor, Miss Hawaii 2003, Alicia Jones (married name - formerly Alicia Michioka). Alicia Jones is a friend on Kanoe's Facebook page, but I can't find any other connections between them. Alicia is currently Mrs. Hawaii 2010 for about another 10 days or so. Kanoe has over 1500 Facebook friends and I've only looked at the first page, so there are plenty of other possibilities out there.

Another possibility, though I think it unlikely, is Kanoe's sister Malia who has a music career and has released at least one CD. She has a few videos on Youtube. However, most pictures of Malia don't look like the partner. A few do, so it's slightly possible due to the fuzzy quality of the pictures we have of them.

I'm at work, so I can't upload pictures of Alicia Jones or Malia Gibson. I'll leave that as an exercise for the more adept people out there.

I remember seeing a while back that the singing sister had performed at a wedding during the weekend that the race got underway, so I ruled her out.

I was told it is indeed not her sister Malia. She does have another sister who I couldn't find any pictures of. But as of 2009, they both worked together for the same airline.

Thanks for the info. I didn't check out either one to see what they have been doing lately.

It does appear that Mrs. Hawaii 2011 was crowned a few months ago, so Alicia Jones is not the current Mrs. Hawaii. The Mrs. Hawaii's Facebook page confused the heck out of me just now, so I'm not sure what to make of that site.

Back in May, I came across a film notice for "untitled B-roll"  - filming on June 2, 2011.  It was to take place on  Las Vegas Blvd. on the sidewalk from Flamingo to Tropicana, and there were to be  3 crew filming 2 people walking on sidewalk.  The production company was WRP group.   Hopefully this will help with the search for contestants!

That sounds like they were filming the opening title scene for a team, probably from Vegas.

That is correct. It's the team of "Hawaiian" girls so it's not Kanoe.

June 2 is early for sequester. What kind of team would WRP have at their disposal for that long before the start date?

All right, back it up then. You apparently know something we don't as it doesn't say what team they were filming.

Am I the only one that finds it odd that that portion of sidewalk is in front of this?

That area does include other popular sites like the Monte Carlo and the Bellagio but it still seems odd.  :lol:

The Hawaiian Marketplace?

That's an interesting observation. I've tried to find out more about the Hawaiian Marketplace and didn't find much out there. Most of the reviews were pretty bad and it sounds like a struggling operation (restaurants opening and closing, stalls selling trinkets made in China, etc.). I suppose they could have been filming someone there, but I'd expect they would go somewhere more scenic than that, like a park, even if they were filming someone connected to the place. If they were filming someone inside the Marketplace, I don't think they would need a permit.

I've seen references lately to the WRP Group doing a show with Ron Howard. Perhaps the filming permit was involved with that production.

I think they film the team intros in the team's hometown before sequester.

Dumb question (this might be somewhat speculation), but why do some teams have footage of them in the race instead of in their hometown?

They all have one. This is the shot that pops up in the opening credits where the team is pictured together in some way. Footage of them racing flashes right before that, and is updated as the race progresses.

There is also a POSSIBILITY they are flight attendants.

I guess I should just post some full names...



Meet the mystery blue team - RON ZEITZ and BILL SMITH.

They are a couple. Ron is on the right. He's 44 (or maybe 45 now since he just had a birthday?). Bill is on the left. He's 49. They're from Laguna Niguel, CA....the same place as Joe and Bill from Team Guido. It is BELIEVED but not confirmed yet, that they work for American Airlines.




Meet siblings JUSTIN and JENNIFER YOUNG.

Justin is 31 and went to school at Emory University with Survivor Gabon contestant Marcus Lehman. He was also a resident physician. Jennifer is 27. They are from Stone Mountain, GA.




One of the "Hawaiian girls" is 31 year-old LISA TILLEY - a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas.

More to come.

You know what, I will say this. I'd rather have more normal people then another pageant girl. I found Andy, so I'm content with it not being Kanoe.
