I really wish that they wouldn't do 3 continent races for an All Stars race or any race full stop. I'd expect at least 5 continents for a race like this.

I understand, and this is the place to say stuff. May you and the race live a long time.

Thank you :)

Mark & Bopper are in the Starting Line. I wonder what twist it is so Bopper dropped out.

Just watched the new "Dramatic Twist" promo, and I think I have a fair idea how CBS will play this out -

From the promo, along with the new photo's on the CBS website of the teams, it's clear Boppers at the Starting Line. 
What probably happened was Phil and Bopper (and most likely Mark) were at the hospital (which is seen in the promo) probably a few days or even the day before the scheduled start of the race, and was told the bad news. Bopper went to the start line, knowing he wouldn't be racing and that's where Phil reveals it to everyone else that Bopper is unable to compete?
This would make sense, as it helps explain how they were able to get Mallory as a replacement - She will probably show up at the Start Line and surprise the others. (I'd assume Mark already know's he's racing with Mallory)

I'm just VERY surprised that Mark wanted to go ahead and race without Bopper?  ???

My only other concern is this medical condition? I hope it's only temporary, and won't hinder him from being able to compete in the race if asked to return in the future? Coz if any team deserve a third run, it's Bopper & Mark, and I don't even consider this a second time for them, so technically they've still only raced once!  :(

Oh well, that's my analysis anyway. :lol:

We should have just had Mallory & Brooke tbh :/

Mallory auditioned with Brooke and was seen at casting apparently.

Remember back in live sightings thread, Mallory and Brooke were to be as an alternate replacement team, and Brooke was already in Mexico (November 15th) on her own personal trip.

Really?? Which season did they Audition for?
They wouldn't have held any auditions for All-Stars, and if they auditioned for a regular season I couldn't see CBS using them as they've already run the race and would be rather suited to a returning season.

But yea, even though I'm not a fan of the hybrid teams, I agree that they should have just told Mark to wait till next time and use Mallory & Brooke.

Many were called, few were chosen. Many were NOT called.

But yes there are "auditions" of a sort. Teams have to impress the high levels of production, CBS, sponsors, etc....

And Claude is correct.

Well that's me told!  :funny:
Never knew they held Auditions for All-Stars though? Thought it was just the producers contacting who they want and just go down the list till they have 11 teams. :lol:

There was a "finals" but several more teams additionally went out separately. So any "finals" sightings are never 100% confirmation. They are always more teams "in the bushes".  :funny:

I never knew that! Learn something new everyday :lol:
Thanks Peach.  :<3

On a different note though, I just re-watched the new promo and CBS SOOOOOOOOOOO dropped the ball on this it's crazy!
By looking at the shocked reactions of both the Afghanimals and Margie & Luke, and putting that together with the direction they're looking (over to their left, our right from viewing), and based on the positions of where each team is standing in the starting line picture (see link below) CBS have made it so easy for the fans to figure out that the "Shocking Drama" is in relation to Bopper & Mark.  :groan:

Here's a link to the picture on the CBS site - http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/photos/1001191/phil-greets-the-teams-on-the-season-24-premiere/49304/

From the causal viewer's point of view, the promos may alert them that the team having a medical problem is Mark and Bopper, but none of the CBS written media or promos have given any hint that Mallory replaced Bopper.

So there's a surprise there for the causal viewer.

And let's admit that even our real time information did not have anything on why Bopper had to be replaced to race with Mark. (Also, IIRC, didn't Bopper have a medical issue during their prior Race? And I wonder if the two were related in any way.)

Hopefully most people that noticed / figured it out don't know about Mallory replacing Bopper, coz then it'll give them a nice surprise to see a fan favourite return!  :hoot:

Today I noticed that this weekend is the premiere of Season 24, and I'm just not that excited for some reason, I don't know if it is the cast, the way the first few legs were heavily spoiled for me, surprisingly because usually I don't mind spoilers, I don't really know what it is...

I'm curious to what happened in the starting line that they needed a replacement. I'm excited for new challenges and locations and because is a new season and I'll get to talk about it with more people about it but there is something off with this season.

Same old same old.  At least one "villain" team and one "favorite" team  in the final 3, to make it compelling. Would not be surprised if it was not Margie and Luke and the Afghanimals having at least 2 spots with Brenchel getting the 3 .

I'm all right with the Twins out first, I never really liked them after they stole from the Rockers in Season 21, so I'm glad to see Karma come back and bite them in the ass! :lol:

As for Mark & Mallory, if I'm correct, wasn't it the fault of Mark leaving his bag behind that got them eliminated??

I for one will definitely be upset with the end of Leg 2!  :'(

Especially after watching the Cast Assessment video released today, when Phil says Bopper & Mark lost their jobs and are having a hard time at the minute.  They're by far the most rootable team, not just this season, but quite possibly of all time?  :hearts:

Just reading the interview with Phil and how he talks about the team that doesn't make it past the start line. It sounds as though it literally only happened the night before they actually started the race. Something must of happened between doing the videos the day before (If that is when they do them) and the night of that day.

I don't think it was stealing because PRODUCTION GAVE IT TO THEM.

And for footnote 2, yes. Unfortunately :(

And once the season ends, time to speculate about their survival in the What If thread :lol:

[Well, whatever the case, I don't think it should have been allowed.
Sure, you can argue it was the Rockers own fault for leaving it sitting there and not being more careful, but it still put me off the Twins. :lol:
