I was hoping TAR wouldn't go the Survivor route with professional athletes.  I just hope they don't overdo it.  Karl Malone is a pretty big name in the NBA.  His wife was 1988 Miss Idaho USA, so the trend of beauty queens continues.

His facial features look similar but the beard messes things up. He has a lot of different looks including bald and with short and long hair. The upper body build is actually similar as well.
Who knows  :duno:

You're right there is no pic of them in this thread, there probably should be:

And in case anyone thought Jamie was the other guy:

We can add another pageant winner to our list of TAR contestants:  (from Wikipedia, Karl Malone)

I actually thought to ask if that big guy was a pro athlete, but would never have placed him. That is definitely them! Great work.
I am hesitant to post people's profiles but anyone think that the 2009 Miss Hawaii Aureana Tseu as a possibility for one of the Hawaiian girls?

Last year I incorrectly identified a couple of BQs so take it for what it is worth. I don't know how to track facebook or twitter action.

I find it very interesting that one of Jamie O'Brien's last tweets says ""A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." - Lao Tzu"

She is on Twitter and hasn't tweeted since May 19.  She was supposed to be in Hiroshima on June 2.  None of which precludes racing.  Her pages are in Japanese, so if it's her, too bad they didn't go to Japan first.

I had already looked at Aureana and thought that they did not look the same. But there is a chance. Here is them with her and Miss Hawaii Nicole Fox to see if they are either one.

For anyone who has been within earshot of the racers: have you either of the surfers speak? I have an idea for the other surfer, but he's got an Australian accent. His name is Mark Mathews.

If all these are true, this season is full of celebrities! What's going on? One or two teams are fine but now we are talking about 4 teams with semi-famous people? way too much.

It's about the same number of teams with celebrities as other seasons.

A couple of comments from me in relation to the eventual identification of Karl and Kay Malone.

For our RFF friends not in the U.S., many African-Americans have very light skin, and from skin color might appear to be white. Same think with "bi-racials" as marriages where one person is white and the other is black are far more common in the U.S. now than it was 50 years ago.

Second, athletes, especially in the sports considered major in the U.S. -- football, baseball, and basketball. Even retired athletes tend to keep their bulk as well as height. And even if not a professional athlete, sometimes athletes who retire from a sport after college. I just want to avoid assuming that someone who looks like an athlete is currently active in that sport professionally,

That said, I'm not going to condemn casting a retired (reasonably well-known) professional athlete. In fact, TAR hasn't had many of those, unlike Survivor, where there seems to be a retired NFL player almost every season now. Retired athletes or their family members, just like retired beauty pageant winners may be fans of the show and applied to be on. Let's see what the back story is before throwing bricks at Lynn Spellman.
