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?
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.
