Prophet:
The first thing that struck me about them is that they don't quite fit one of the typical molds of teams. They will probably suffer from pride and overconfidence :lol:

Theodorus:
They're kinda reminding me of Louie & Michael. Not a likable team, but I feel they will go far

addie:
I don't think I like them. They are my least favorites (:;)

Best Loser:
I'm really surprised there are two male teams over 40. These two remind me of Louie & Michael, too. Their video rubs me the wrong way for some reason I can't explain, so for these two I'll just have to wait for the first episode.

Also the guy on the right (J.J.?) looks way too much like my high school geometry teacher, it's seriously creeping me out.
