IGN TV: So where do you two stand on the oft-debated topic of doing an Amazing Race: All-Stars edition? Do you think it would be a fun thing to do?
Keoghan: I don't know. I think if the fans really want it, then they should get what they want. Because there's such a freshness to the teams going out to places they've never been before, and they don't know what it's like to be in television and to be on television, they're sort of naïve in a way that makes for really exciting content. And sometimes when I've seen these shows were people have come back, [and] they tend to be much more affected. They get a sense of how they look on TV, so then they alter their behavior a little bit. I'd hate to see that happen. But I don't know. I'm open to it.
Doganieri: I think it would be good if we brought back teams from the very beginning; the first couple seasons, who haven't been around it for awhile. I think we've progressively made it a little harder, the challenges, and a little more interesting. So we would make it really, really tough for them. And there is certain teams that I'd like to see come back; it's not always the first or second place teams. There's a lot of good teams that got eliminated first or second round that would be really good.
Keoghan: Absolutely. We have lost some really good teams early. Avi and Joe from Season 6, the Jews in Iceland.
Doganieri: Charla and Mirna… There's a lot of good teams that aren't first, second or third in the winnings.
Keoghan: The two guys that were in season 7; the hillbillies. They would have been great.
Doganieri: They were funny and smart. Nobody even knew this but one of them spoke like three languages. And the guy drives around on his ranch, you know? He lives way down in the South, drives around on a tractor… Really smart guys. Good sense of humors.

IGN TV: So do you do those sort of fantasy picks, imagining if you did do All-Stars who you might put on it?
Doganieri: I have done my own little poll from some of the TARCon people, asking them who they would like. I've got that list on my desk. I did my own poll. But there's a few of our favorites, for sure.
Keoghan: There's definitely people that fans keep mentioning, over and over and over.
Doganieri: And some they definitely don't want back. I won't mention those…But you all know who they are.
IGN TV: I think I know who they all are, but I wonder if some of those are the ones I'd want back.
Doganieri: I think we're all in agreement on the same people.
IGN TV: I think we're all in agreement on some people, that's for sure.
[Doganieri at this point had to leave with her husband (and Amazing Race executive producer) Bertram van Munster]
Keoghan: Some teams that want to come back, the ones that voice their interest in coming back the most, are the ones that we don't want. It's interesting, right?
IGN TV: It is interesting. I don't know how you feel about this team, but I feel like on an All-Stars season, you should definitely have Colin and Christie [from season 5].
Keoghan: Well he would have to be the most competitive person, the most driven person, in my opinion, that we've ever had.
IGN TV: I agree, but I know he's one of those people that splits the fans so much.
Keoghan: But he's great to watch! I agree with you.
IGN TV: Yeah, I know he split the audience as far as if they liked him or not, but I think they were always interested in what he was doing. So would you have them on All-Stars?
Keoghan: I like him. I liked them as TV. It's not going to be up to me, but I did like them for TV. I thought they were great. http://tv.ign.com/articles/732/732839p4.html
