Is this list serious? It's shitty.  :funny:

The only All-Star team worthy on that list are Dustin & Kandice, Charla and Mirna, Gary & Mallory, Brook & Claire and Jamie & Cara. These five teams should be able to come back and do another race. Imagine Margie & Luke, Globes and Cowboys appeared in 3 seasons, how the hell did that happen? These five teams I've mentioned deserves another chance to race again. I'm just glad Justin & Diana aren't included. :grins:

I hope this isn't a shortlist for a future season. Lol. They should definitely include Hayley & Blair (That is, if Blair wants to race with Hayley again. :lol: ), Derek & Drew, Colin & Christie, Krista & Tiffany, Monica & Joseph (Unpopular opinion. lol), Flo & Zach, and probably Rob & Brennan for being the first winners ever.

This is not a who should come back list, or an ALL-STARS list, or a list of best all round racers, or any thing else except CBS's Media take on which teams were the "Most Favorite" of "All Time".

What criteria did they use? Most requests for publicity/media opps with the team would be my #1 guess, closely followed by production's own biases, and maybe remembering feedback from the casuals at the time.

I loved many of the teams on here, some I would replace with others.

But get real...Karlyn as a "most favorite" when she was universally hated and behaved appallingly during that season? Questioning Jordan when ratings and even our traffic went thru the roof?

This is nothing but one more bit of TAR publicity...and that's okay. We need all the help we can get. But stick with the "Most Favorite" designation only and you will see better why some of these were picked.
 
But yeah. .maybe WE would have chosen some others.  But no one asked the real fans for input right? :funny:

i stopped clicking when i saw bj and tyler. that's about it. thankfully justin and diana are omitted otherwise i might think they will be crazy to bring back those two... (then again they might, considering these two = drama and since they love drama they will love to piss us real fans off)

Before you read this, I used MY personal opinion, what I remember about casuals' opinions, and what I've read on the forums for this list.

Based on seasons I saw, these teams deserve it:

Season 12 | Kynt & Vyxsin--5th place
Season 14 | Margie & Luke--3rd place
Season 15 | Flight Time & Big Easy--4th place
Season 16 | Jet & Cord--2nd place
Season 17 | Brook & Claire -- 2nd place
Season 18 | Gary & Mallory -- 6th place
Season 19 | Andy & Tommy -- 4th place
Season 22 | Dave & Connor -- 8th place
Season 24 | Leo & Jamal--4th place
Season 24 | Brendon & Rachel--3rd place
Season 25 | Kym & Alli--5th place

Based on what I've read on forums:

Season 1 | Nancy & Emily--5th place
Season 2 | Oswald & Danny--4th place
Season 3 | Teri & Ian--2nd place
Season 3 | Ken & Gerard--3rd place
Season 5 | Charla & Mirna--5th place
Season 6 | Kris & Jon--2nd place
Season 7 | Uchenna & Joyce--1st place
Season 7 | Rob & Amber--2nd place
Season 7 | Meredith & Gretchen--4th place
Season 8 | Gaghan Family--6th place
Season 9 | BJ & Tyler--1st place
Season 10 | Dustin & Kandice--4th place
Season 13 | Toni & Dallas--4th place

Only the inclusion of Andy & Tommy seems a bit strange, they weren't THAT popular IIRC

Haha, I did feel a bit weird including them. They could easily be replaced by another team from the earlier seasons. It's understandable why CBS left Season 19 out--it's kind of a forgettable season (a la Season 13)--IMO.

If anyone questions Brenchel--I was surprised they included Romber.

The difference between Brenchel and Romber is that CBS AND TAR love Rob.  CBS might love Rachel, but it appears Bertram and Co. do not.  Where did I see that Brenchel wouldn't have been asked back had it not been for CBS having a major say?

Brendon & Rachel are certainly polarizing, especially in TAR20.  But when even casuals were siding with them over Dave & Connor in TAR24, it says a lot. lol

But they certainly deserved a place on the list more than teams like Jason & Amy and Josh & Brent who people might not even remember, let alone be a "most favorite" team.

You know this really hurts me.  :(

Dustin and Kandice is I think is well-deserved to be in the list though!  :)

My list of Most Favorites (to me that =Most Beloved at the time) would have to include:

Emily And Nancy
Oswald and Danny
Linda and Karen
Kris and Jon
Meredith and Gretchen
Gaghans
Mary and David


Those teams were robbed.   :o

Season 10 | Dustin & Kandice--4th place
Season 13 | Toni & Dallas--4th place

The only changes I'd make here is switch Andy & Tommy for Bill & Cathi, and include Mark & Bopper.  Other than that, it's pretty much perfect.

Maybe, Mike & Rochelle as well, but I can't really remember how the casuals perceived them?  ???
Wishlist Cast for Next Returnee Season:
Mark & Bopper (S24), Kym & Alli (S25), Misti & Jim (S25), Mike & Rochelle (S26), Hayley & Blair (S26), Ernest & Jin (S27), Cindy & Rick (S27), Tiffany & Krista (S27)

The casuals were neutral towards Mike & Rochelle throughout the season as their edit wasn't a standout in any way, but they definitely received a lot of empathy towards the end of the race and their elimination. The blind date twist and all the teams involved in it weren't really popular with the casuals. :lol:

What a garbage list (only 5 or so teams from pre-S12). It's Bertram & CBS trying to distance themselves from the early seasons and pretend it never existed. We, as fans, should not accept this. Those seasons were works of arts and need to be remembered as such.  :gaah: :groan: :snicker: (:;)

Gaghans

I swear... The family season gets zero love (which is understandable). But seriously, Gaghans were - and are - one of my favorites. Just about everyone from that season happened to be likable.

Gaghans/Weavers/Paolos are all very memorable and iconic teams and TAR8 doesn't deserve the flack it got just because people never got over racing mainly in the USA.

It's still a very good season and it's absolutely ironic that a Race taking place almost entirely in the USA has more placement shifts than most seasons these days.

The drama between teams was absolutely fantastic in TAR8 and felt genuine and not forced and I liked almost every single team in the top 6. TAR8 is so underrated and I wish we could get another fantastic cast like we did in TAR8

Yeah, but they don't classify as my #1 top-tier favorites overall via their season impact.

Probably between #41-50 though, I'll have to try and rank ALL the teams eventually :p
