Despite the skeptical look from the man with flowers, I think Team Dark Green got a big fat book on China out of this discussion  :lol:

Is it possible that this is Brett Clouser from Survivor Samoa? His last tweet was May 15th, and he was a very regular tweeter before then.

Would that possibly make the girl Kelly Sharbaugh if that's true?

The picture looks kind of like Brett and kind of like Kelly. Too bad it's not clearer.

There is a rumor that they are engaged.

I have an ID on our Tall guy:

Robert Adams
Assistant Professor of Architecture





Is it just me or does this not even look like the same person??? But if he's been identified... :duno:

And this guy looks nothing like the smaller man either.
I found this picture of a Joel Schmidt from Michigan who looks like the pic above & he's definitely not the smaller guy of the small/tall guy team.

i was gonna say the same thing...neither of the 2 guys look like our 2 guys on the team.  the little guy especially...and the head shape of the big guy and of robert adams dont really match.

Not to mention that Robert's hair is a different color

No.

Well, Kelly has a distinctive tatoo in her left forearm.  The picture of the girl's left arm at the Shangai airport has no tatoo.  And in the pic of the rappelling task you can also see her forearm without it.

the picture of robert is from 5 years ago...so hairs may turn gray...but the shape of one's head just doesnt change.

Here's an article about Robert Adams dated (week of) April 2, 2012.
http://ur.umich.edu/1112/Apr02_12/3416-disability-rights-influence

In this article is a more recent picture of him, and while I must say that it is close, I don't think it's him on the race.

Photo by Austin Thomason, U-M Photo Services.

ETA: Our racer has lighter (and less) hair and eyebrows, different glasses, and other things that wouldn't have changed so dramatically over the course of two months.

This might sound crazy... but I am pretty sure I have seen the U of M team before (at least "tall"). I don't go to U of M (yet :lol: ), but I have been on tours and stuff.

If my memory serves me right, however, I saw them somewher else, possibly at a U of M football prty of some sort (at someone's house).

They could be professors, but I don't think they are. If anything, they're probably (at least in my opinion) grads.

I will look through a few Facebook networks tomorrow and tell you what I can find. :tup:

Thank you (and to the others too). I was really trying to see the match but just couldn't, that's why I posted.

I'm actually divided. My mom's MSU, my dad's U of M. I'm somewhere in the middle, and I always get dragged around to both. :lol:

Anyways, I will look tomorrow, and I will ask my dad and some other U of M grads I know if there are any familiar faces. :tup:
