I agree about the Meghan/Cheyne comment. I like these guys. I'm smelling a mis-step on a late leg after dominating a lot (Andy/Tommy-esque).

*yawns* they don't seem very interesting.

I think they'll get next to no screentime like Jeremy & Sandy and will be loved for that.  :res:

What a weird face looks blonde boys! I don't know that I dislike or like, not sure.
I really wish we could stay longer in the countries we visit, but I've been lucky to have visited most of them before, because I've done a tremendous amount of travel. - Phil Keoghan

They look like either the next Terence & Sarah or Anthony & Stephanie. I won't be too sure until I've watched their video though.

From the vid:

People kept telling them they were perfect for the race. Have been together 4 years.

Adventure junkies, experienced in scuba diving, rock climbing, surfing. She is a marathoner, has run the Boston Marathon 4 times.

He quit his corporate job to move to CA and start his own business, they understand risk taking.

They look fun to watch to me!!

They are good on my books too? I actually think they will do a Kris/Jon, Trey/Lexi race... mid pack/top pack and actually do well? :keeta:

These two are, as our outstanding Moderator georgiapeach said, adventure junkies. They seem to have several bases covered as far as personal skills need to advance in the race.

Okay, revised: They now seem like a potential Kris & Jon. Which is good - even with all the drama that creates the interesting TV, you still need the teams that are well-grounded and don't spend the whole time being over-dramatic.

Which was the exact problem TAR 6 had. :lol3:

I could see them finishing either in the middle of the pack, or going far, but I can't envision them winning. Interesting.

Why do I have Amanda & Kris vibes from them or I'm I just grumpy?

PS: I liked Amanda & Kris.

Visually they remind me a lot more of Ernie and Cindy and now maybe I'm the only one who thinks this but to me he looks like a young Mike White and they definitely sound alike...

He does look like a really young version of Mike White! :lol:

This team's okay. I haven't seen much in them except them dominating the first leg. They're not annoying, though.
