There is a Starting Line Task. But the two things have nothing to do with each other. :tup:

To be honest, if it's an Allstars (TARUB - 23), I'm surprised they didn't choose Gary and Mallory over Margie and Luke, not because Margie and Luke are not memorable.. but, Gary and Mallory made a huge impression on UB.

There are a LOT of teams I would have rather seen tbh.

Regarding this season's cast, I'm only happy to see five of the teams. :res:

So much more good choices from the other seasons ESPECIALLY TAR 19. TAR 19 snub is seriously ugh.

Bill and Cathi should of been asked to return! I can understand why Amarcus didn't come back and same with Snowboarders/Jeremy and Sandy but they were a great team who I think would of done well. Out of all the non three timers, the only odd pick from TAR 22 was Jessica/John.

TAR 4, TAR 6 and TAR 13 are the only seasons where there is not even one returning team... and those seasons feature some really memorable teams like Kelly and Jon, Kris and Jon, REBECCA <3, Lori and Bolo, Terence and Sarah and KEN AND TINA. Seriously don't get the producers taste and choice.

BACK TO THE TOPIC though, do you think Bopper will even appear at the starting line? I mean, even if Mallory is officially replacing, it's kinda hard and impossible to draw some links just right during the first 10 mins teams introduction segment?

Yes, Bopper will be at the Start Line.

That's also what I think, so that would mean that it wasn't the starting line task that got Bopper eliminated and Mallory take his place & race with Mark. ;)

That could be it. The Starting Line task could be played individually, and the last racer to finish it would be eliminated, with a mystery racer to take his or her place, Mallory being revealed as this mystery racer. Whether this be a blessing or a curse is up to the remaining racer to decide. And the "one team won't even make it to the starting line" thing is played on the technicality that the team 'changed' because one team member is different.

I'm pretty sure Bill & Cathi were one of the originally invited teams (the probable reason why there are so many Unfinished Business returnees), but I do remember Cathi stating she is a college instructor who also works her & Bill's ranch. Plus, the all-stars II filming was during school days so Cathi had no choice but to decline. They ran the race in the summer for TAR19. For casting, we have to think how the team would take the call. Not how we would.

There's no way Jeremy & Sandy would have been invited back. They are probably one of the least memorable dating teams yet. I can't even remember one placement they got before the finale.

Based on one of the promos, we see Cord and Jessica jumping with local dancers and trying to grab the flag of Sabah. We also see Cord rappelling off the Kiansom waterfall. They both seem like Roadblock tasks, but Cord is doing both, so it's not likely. Maybe the jumping is a Route Info task or Detour option, since they have the gnome in the rappelling and it seems odd to have both team members get the gnome.

There's another reason why they weren't invited back:

Sandy and Jeremy wanted to share their happiness with you all!!

Well, that could be a reason for them to DECLINE, but I don't think CBS even called them :P Anyway, it doesn't even matter, 'cause obviously they're not on and should not be worried about :lol:

Something that somewhat surprises me. If they are billing it as All Stars again why not invite back a winning team? I'm sure teams like Ernie & Cindy and Josh & Brent would happily race again if they needed another team to take part. Either of those two would be better than Jess and John  :funny: Unless they are planning something for Season 25.

According to Wikipedia, this Season spans 35,000 miles, the same as last season. While I find it highly unlikely that this race could have as long of a route, it got me thinking.

We have several days between leg 7 in Rome and leg 10 in Seville. We also know that a fourth "mystery" continent was visited at some point on the race. From this information, I am suspecting that a country in West Africa was visited for two legs, with a possible NEL/TBC in the middle.

Also, the press release stated that there will be nine countries visited, of which we only currently know six: China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Italy, Spain, and USA. The remaining three must each have their own leg, or one leg must visit two countries. My guess for the leg 11 is probably somewhere in west Europe, such as England/Wales/France/etc.

All of this is just speculation. Feel free to discuss.

I also think there will be 2 countries visited on 1 leg at some point deeper into the race. :hoot: I think it might be a small minor country like Andorra. Oh and btw, UB did that for leg 9 - they visited Liechtenstein, but went on to Switzerland for the detour & pitstop. ;)

???

As we all know, Bopper started the race. He was replaced last minute by Mallory. Pretty straightforward. And exactly what Chateau reported from the start line.

Seriously?? :o
I knew Bopper had been asked, but never realised how far into planning he was. I thought he pulled out once he was asked, and they just used Mallory instead.

It'll be interesting to see whether CBS release an updated cast photo featuring Mallory, or what way they'll work it.  ???

Thanks for the clarification! Today is the first day since November that I've got time to browse RFF for updated info.  :'( I haven't even got to watch the preview yet!!  :iok I'm so out of the season 24 loop, but going to fix that now  :yess: And I agree, it does explain the starting line drama!

ASSUMING WIKIPEDIA'S 100% ACCURACY. i doubt it would have visited a new country since the information is not leaked. Amazing race always releases information about new country being visited before airings, unless it didn't have a new country.

i think there would be two possibilities,
first, leg 8 or leg 9 being an african leg and europe as penultimate
or
leg 8 and 9 were in europe and a penultimate in south america ( just like UB )
i would've preferred the first scenario though :D

I'd prefer the first scenario tho. It's been a while South America as a Penultimate Le. Europe was just in Season 22 as a Penultimate Leg  :res:
