Steven has a nice team summary here!


From Survivor champs to twin sisters to snowboarders, get a sneak peak at the 11 teams who'll be racing around the world for CBS's 19th Amazing Race.


Although CBS wonít officially release the names of The Amazing Race 19 contestants until early September, Internet sleuths at Reality Fan Forum have unearthed the identities of all eleven teams. This time, Survivor champions, twin sisters, snowboarders, and flight attendants are among the adventurous pairs who traveled the world from June to July 2011 in pursuit of the million dollar grand prize. Get an early look at the new teams below.

"Get to know NFL player Marcus Pollard from 'The Amazing Race 19'"
 by Stacy Carey, Scottsdale TV Examiner
 August 8, 2011

Fans are geared up for Season 19 of The Amazing Race on CBS, and it looks like itís going to be a great cast. One of the racers for TAR 19 is Marcus Pollard, who is racing with his wife Amani. Kudos to the observant Reality Fan Forum poster Chateau d'If who was the first to uncover the Pollard couple's participation. Pollard is a former NFL football player, and Scottsdale fans of the show are anxious to learn a bit more about this NFL and TAR star.

    Marcus played basketball at Bradley University, as the school did not have a football program at the time he attended.
    Pollard was signed by the Indianapolis Colts in 1995 as an undrafted free agent.
    His best season was in 2001 where he had 47 receptions and 8 touchdowns, including one for 86 yards.
    Marcus played for the Colts from 1995-2004.
    He moved on to play for the Detroit Lions from 2005-2006.
    He also played for the Seattle Seahawks (2007), New England Patriots (2008 Offseason/practice squad) and Atlanta Falcons (2008-2009).
    His career stats indicate he has a total of 349 receptions for a total of 4,280 yards and 40 touchdowns.
    After retiring, Pollard became a high school football offensive coordinator at Lanett High School in Alabama.
    Marcus and his wife Amani have three children together: Myles, Micah and Aja.
    The Pollard family is now in Atlanta, Georgia. Marcus is 39-years-old and Amani is 36.

I highly doubt it. Colombia is not very safe at the moment so most likely no.

The Suite101 article said early September, but I see that as an estimate over a solid date. Probably a week or so after the Survivor cast which will be released on Monday.

Survivor begins its new season on September 14th, which is 11 days ahead of TAR 19's premiere, so that would suggest no earlier than about August 30th, or just after the Labor Day weekend.

So should we expect a site to screw up and release the bios and stuff before realizing they jumped the boat?  :lol:

I have no idea where these came from, it does NOT appear that CBS has done the official reveal yet, so we are going to hold off commenting for now....

If anyone has the site link for this info, please PM me. Thanks!

I'm wondering if maybe Cindy (of Cindy & Ernie) is Taiwanese. Her last name, Chiang, seems to be spelled in a more Taiwanese way; in Pinyin (the system used in China), it would be spelled "Jiang." If so, she'd definitely have a big advantage in Taiwan.

I am amazed that World Race Productions cast two alpha males on one team. Andy and Tommy appear to have a fitness and I will guess speed edge over the other teams. Why would WRP have done this? Except for AR16 (Dan and Jordan, Jet and Cord), WRP has been careful since Amazing Race 9 and 10 to make sure that there were no strong alpha male teams. They have abandoned that formula for AR19. I wonder why?

As an aside, I feel it is a no-brainer at this point in knowledge about AR19 to project Andy/Tommy as both a finalist and potential winner.
