My response to the Speculated Cast: (If ever it's real) As well as my speculation in order of finish if ever the Race starts and they're on.
Snowbores- *zzz* I hated them all the way back in TAR 19. They were boring, had no memorable moments, and every one of their "dominating" leg wins were just because of teams messing up, luck, etc.
(EXAMPLES: Leg 2-Orphangate, Leg 3-Laurence and Zac's Detour Bucket Blunder, Leg 4- Finishing the Coral Detour before the High Tide hit and other teams choosing that Detour, Leg 6- Justin and Jennifer's Driver Blunder, Leg 7- Ernie and Cindy's Lost moment finding the U-Turn) you see where I'm going with this? IMO the only leg win they deserved was Leg 10 in Belgium because they pulled themselves out of fourth and really beat the teams, but the rest are undeserved victories. :/ Not looking forward to them if they make it next season, I would rather have had Bill and Cathi or Amani and Marcus.
PREDICTION: They seemed to falter in Mental tasks, so a mental task in Leg One could kill them easily. I predict them in 11th.
Cowbores- *wakes up from Snowbores, then falls back to sleep* I loved them in TAR 16. But them returning for TAR 18 was pretty bad. There were far more DESERVING teams than them from their season. (Steve and Allie? Such As?) And by then, their likability fell off. And them getting a THIRD CHANCE is just vomit inducing. They are literally not the "best team ever". If only TAR could rig it against them or if they get Chester and Ephraimed, I will totally be happy for this season.
PREDICTION: I have to assume someone will U-Turn them because of them coming back a third time. I would predict at least 7th place though. (7th)
Brenchel- I LOVE THEM. A lot of people complain about Rachel's crying but that's the point. It's funny! It's great! They're awesome! They were EPIC in TAR 20! I so look forward to them coming back <333333
PREDICTION: Assuming Rachel doesn't go all meltdowny like the final in TAR 20, they really really could win.
I'm gonna predict them to win! <3 (1st)
I actually liked them on Leg 1, but by the time Dave's Achilles popped out, I was begging for an elimination. Their edit was REALLY REALLY ANNOYING. It wasn't The Amazing Race. It was the Let's Be Happy We Survived Cancer And We Can Do It show EVERY WEEK. From Leg 3-Leg 6
I might have a chance to like them if they come back and everything's fine, but the last straw was them cheating off off Pam and Winnie in Indonesia, and all my like for them evaporated as fast as Joseph and Grace in TARAUS. Another not good M/M returnee.
PREDICTION: Ehhhh, hard to see. I would go out on a limb here and assume 9th place. (9th)
Bopper & Mark- Their edit was pretty similar to Cancer, but in my opinion, at least Bopper and Mark were genuinely likable. They were charming, hilarious, and heartbreaking once they got eliminated. In my opinion, the best M/M team to return. <33333333
PREDICTION: They make the Final 3 at least. (3rd)
Twinnies- I liked Natalie and Nadiya, but they started to grate on me for no good reason as the season went on. IMO they are still an epic fun team, but hopefully they don't get TOO MUCH exposure.
PREDICTION: They did well in challenges, but they might fail Oswald/Danny style. (4th)
Pam/Winnie- I LOVED THEM. They are an epic F/F team, ESPECIALLY THE BEST PURE ASIAN TEAM SINCE RON AND CHRISTINA. <3333333 They were hilarious, competitive, and witty to boot. They needed redemption the most from the TAR 22 teams and they deserve to make it far <333333333333
PREDICTION: Assuming they make the right choices, I would say they might be in the final 3. Their competitiveness <33333 (2nd)
CaroJen- I liked them, but in my opinion their racing skills aren't the best, but they are just two friends having fun and enjoying the Race, so they're pretty cool too.
PREDICTION: Unfortunately, their racing pedigree isn't as good as the other teams here :/ I would predict a sad 10th place boot. (10th)
YouTube- Having been a fan of Meghan pre TAR 22, and not so much on Joey
I loved them in TAR 22, although Joey got on my nerves at times. But they had fun and made the Final 5. Not so shabby.
PREDICTION: Their racing skills are pretty dark horse. One leg they do so well (EXAMPLES: Germany, Botswana 2, Bora Bora) the other they don't do so well (Botswana 1, Obv Scotland, etc.). Their unpredictablity just might make them get lower this time. (6th)
Tim/Marie- They were absolutely hilarious in TAR 23, which is still going on
But I would be happy to see them coming back <3
PREDICTION: They make a sad misstep and they get out on a sad 9th or 5th finish :/
And that's all of my predictions so far, that was long
