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.

If you know much about basketball, Karl Malone is a very controversial person, on court and off.  He definitely comes with more baggage than a backpack!  He could easily be one of the most controversial racers.  Of course, that is sometimes good for ratings.

Just a quick post since I'm heading out to a meeting: the big African American guy doesn't look like Kay Malone. But maybe excitement clouded my vision :) Or maybe he just looks different in photographs.
The Hawaiian girls look a bit like Kat from S17.

I agree, those "Hawaiian" girls have a lot of asian in them. But there is plenty of Japanese influence in Hawaii.

She is likely of Chinese decent as she was able to speak the language fluently.

If I understand what you are trying to say I think you are right. I don't see any rings and they do look like siblings in a way.

One of the pics sure looked like Ethan, and a couple of them seem to show the so-called "surfer dudes." Do we know if these are teams waiting for flights to leg 2, or out of Indonesia a few days later?

The blog entry was posted on the 22nd. I think this is from the first arrival at Jakarta where there were many spotters.

http://jambukebalik.blogspot.com/2011/06/filming-amazing-race-season-19-jakarta.html

for all same picture from blog.

Good find, LoveRocked! It's hard to read from the Google translation (apparently a lot of slang) but the blogger seems to have grabbed information and at least one picture from us. I wonder if the other pictures are his or if they were similarly grabbed from a ekyekyyy web site?
