Teams Asked Back For All Stars But Couldn't Compete
« on: October 03, 2012, 08:21:48 PM »
I've been wondering about All-Stars, and the teams that were asked to compete again. For instance, I know that Meredith & Gretchen and Kelly & Jon were asked to return to compete but declined. Were there any other teams?

Idk if you count unfinished business as all-stars, I do, but Brooke and Claire from 17 were asked to return, however one of them was pregnant. :(

Colin & Christie were asked to compete in All-Stars (Season 11), but Christie was pregnant at that time.

Flo & Drew were asked to compete in All-Stars (Season 11), but Flo wouldn't do it without Zach and she thought the Race brought out the worst in her.

Kris and Jon were also asked to be in the All Star, but they declined the offer.

I think I heard about Brooke & Claire (17), but apparently Claire was busy for her wedding preparations or something.

This is the video when you can see it.  It's Nat & Kat receiving their check as winners of TAR17.

Meridith and Gretchen  were asked back? I wonder who was at the bottom of the list and were added to the cast as these teams declined.

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Meredith and Gretchen were asked back but declined because they felt they had gotten too old to be competitive. I have no idea if that is true or not.

I'll quote the Wikipedia information about the selection process for TAR All Stars (season 11) for what it's worth. I don't claim it's reliable, but it's probably as good as any other source.

This season's 11 teams were selected from past contestants, representing seven of the series' first ten editions (omitting Seasons 4, 6, and 8 ).[10] Keoghan personally submitted a list of 15 teams that he thought should return. Ten of them were chosen. The one he didn't choose was Eric and Danielle, who did not previously race together. Keoghan said, "I didn't think of that new combination, which actually is a really good one."[11] He also added that the production team's goal for the race "wasn't to pick the best racers", but "to pick the teams that have earned the most attention over the last 10 seasons".[8] (Despite the "All-Stars" title, only one team, Uchenna and Joyce, was a winner of a previous season.) Some former racers were angered by their omission from All-Stars, most notably Chip and Kim (Season 5) and BJ and Tyler (Season 9) who publicly criticized CBS' casting process.[12] Colin and Christie (Season 5) were expected to be in All-Stars but could not participate due to Christie's pregnancy.[13] Flo Pesenti and Drew Riker (who began dating after meeting on The Amazing Race 3) were invited to participate, but Flo reportedly declined for two reasons: she felt the first race had brought out the worst in her, and her TAR3 winning partner Zach Behr was not invited to join her. The newly created team for All-Stars thus became Eric and Danielle.

I believe Ken & Gerard were one of the 15 teams Phil suggested and they actually wanted to do it.

Poor Phil. The only team he didn't want on the race won. :tantrum

And I believe Teri and Ian were a replacement for Meredith and Gretchen, John Vito and Jill was a replacement team too (Kris and Jon or any other dating/married couple).

I on the other hand was glad BJ and Tyler was not chosen. THANK GOD.

BJ and Tyler are awesome!

Anyone else find it ironic that the two most positively editing winning teams (Chip and Kim, BJ and Tyler), were the winners that complained openly. :lol3:

This is not an official fact. I heard and know a lot of people who loved the hippies. BTW, I have noticed that you always say your opinions as facts in the forums.

It is a fact. Roughly half of the people that were watching TAR9 did not like the hippies. The other half loved the hippies.
