I suppose whenever TAR falls short and misses their emmy, they've gotta do a return-of-the-racers season


No, it was in the works long before that...


Sorry, my post was a joke.  After all, All-Stars followed 4 Emmy wins and preceded 3 more.  However, I did not know that TAR24 with returning racers was a plan prior to Emmy night.

As mentioned, I don't expect a new country for returning racers. The cast, the whole season, and a return to other awesome countries is enough to make next year an exciting season.  Hate to have them visit a new country, only for that segment to be a bust.

I wonder if there might be a chance this would be a Switchback-type of season. Like having the course be made up of the most infamous legs in TAR history (but with a much harder difficulty)

:hearts:
I would love this!

I think it's not bad having this type of season, but tbh, we wouldn't see any new countries if it were this type of season. :(

I'm fine with no new countries but the switchback idea would bring back some extremely memorable TAR tasks.

Art of listening: Jaguars' Marcus Pollard knows his role as head of player development

...

Quote
The most exciting part for Pollard’s post-football career was participating in
“The Amazing Race” television show with his wife. They finished third out of 11
teams and traveled the world. The show’s producers called him three
weeks after he was hired by the Jaguars, asking him and Amani to compete in
another season.
But Pollard was already busy in Jacksonville.

If one were paying attention to the NFL season, as obvious as the answer is, it could really go one of two ways. :lol:  That's just my opinion; I'm just glad they were asked.

Looks like Amani & Marcus were invited back, but had to decline since Marcus had just been hired by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
They got the invite 3 weeks after he started at the Jags, which was in March.

Do we have any true spoilers of the teams? Because if Joey keeps uploading daily vlogs, he & Meghan were not asked back,and one question does anyone think that CBS could bring teams from seasons 1 to 17?

Daily vlogs can easily be done in advance. Meghan tweeted a picture of all her vlogs she had yet to upload and I think there was 16. Sorry for straying off topic

Or they were asked back but declined.  As for team spoilers, we're not going to get anything (if at all) until the teams are on their way.  Personally, I'd be pissed if I were pulled from an awesome season thanks to a leaked list (a la Apprentice) of participants prior to the start of the season.  Speaking of which...


what date does the filming start?

Not sure.  I was really hoping that they would've started this week(end) so as to have the racers return to their families in time for Thanksgiving, or at least, prior the AR 23 finale.  However, the taping for the spring seasons typically start later in November where it conflicts completely with Thanksgiving Weekend, and the autumn finale (IIRC, they finished Season 22 prior to the Season 21 finale, but barely).  Of course, given the events around LAX, I'm thankful that they did NOT start today or around this horrible day.  Hopefully that won't hold off filming, but it's more important that people are safe, and prayers to those involved.

Anyway, I'm assuming it'll be pretty soon. Unless they emulate the 2001-2002 filiming/airing schedule, it should be within the next couple of weeks.

They could always have an east starting line or maybe a midweek start?

True, but I wonder if, say they were going to start in the all but typical LAX/West Coast spot; how they could adjust with not much time.  Plus, even though it was one area that was affected, I thought about how other areas around the country would react and adjust so as to make sure what transpired at LAX does not happen again.

Well, CBS doesn't exactly tell us, lol. But approx in a couple of weeks or so, we think.

San Francisco starting line please!  :cheer:

And hopefully seeing all the reaction to the teams, Bert & Co. (and CBS apparently) made the necessary changes (hehe, necessary) and are keeping the final list in a safe.
And making anyone who knows of the list to sign a $10 million confidentiality agreement. lol

My spec on Ireland... ??? below 50% ??? But if they visited Ireland for this season, I think there will be a switchback. ???

Donkey Task for Switchback!  :conf:
THIS!

I think this season is going to start in Los Angeles.  :umn:

NO, PLEASE! Indonesia neither...

Finally Philippenes! I like it. :)
Please no more Indonesia  :gaah: :tantrum I'd like to see Malaysia though!

So they turned it down? Or is that for us to decide :lol:
I don't see Amani & Marcus AT ALL as a team that's worthy to come back... I'd rather see a full S1-17 cast with a couple of WORTHY S18-23 returnees, that a bunch of meh teams from recent seasons...

I wonder if there might be a chance this would be a Switchback-type of season. Like having the course be made up of the most infamous legs in TAR history (but with a much harder difficulty)
This would be very interesting! And as reality shows always try to come up with new twists, for an AS season this would be an awesome choice!
