White was a behind-the-scenes member of the Evangelical Protestant movement during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, writing speeches and ghostwriting books for televangelists such as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and Billy Graham. After years of writing for the Religious Right, he came out of the closet in 1994.
*White graduated from Warner Pacific College. That same year, he married his wife Lyla. They had two children, one of whom is the actor/comedian and screenwriter Mike White.
Mel White admitted to his wife that he had always been attracted to men. He embarked on a long process of attempted "cures" for his homo***uality, including psychotherapy, prayer, Electroconvulsive therapy, and exorcism.
*Since 1993, he has devoted himself full-time to minister to lesbians, gays, bi***uals, and transgender people, working on their behalf in the media, in the political process, and with fellow religious leaders.

Female /Female friends Jodi Wincheski & "Christie Volkmer" :
Jodi Wincheski from Houston, TX probably paired with  Christie Volkmer and are SouthWest Airline flight attendants.

**She was sitting right next to one of the contestants, my friend said she was a Kelly Ripa lookalike. This contestant had another friend sitting up a few rows, who she kept referring to as Chrissy.
**The lady also told the flight attendant that she and her friend Chrissy are Southwest Airlines flight attendants back home.
***She said she also had noticed one other team of two girls with backpacks and camera crews, which I suspect *may* have been the pair I (romaniafan) saw stalled outside baggage claim, but not sure.
****My friend said the racer sitting next to her on the plane had mentioned that others "from our group" had been on an earlier flight that day. And as I may have already mentioned, she was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her daughter that said "I love you wherever I go".

--Remember Michael's just a rumor post (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17747.msg356578.html#msg356578)? About the father/son team from the LA area?
I can now confirm that this is no longer a rumor, :lol: :yes: 
--And in the biggest surprise of the season, we are going to have a totally deaf female racer, who must rely on signing, and who will require subtitling during the episodes.

Just a rumor… (The Amazing Race 14)
September 30, 2008

I overheard a father/son talking about their upcoming participation in The Amazing Race season 14.  I don’t think they are supposed to talk about their participation, so I won’t get into a more specific descriptions.
 


cool thread,
i also recieved a reply from the blogger with more information:

Quote
Got your comment… The son was pretty shy but the dad
was very outgoing. They seemed interested in finding
color matching stuff. If I remember correctly it was
all dark blue.
The son was probably early twenties,
maybe younger. Dad looked like late 50s ish. The son
was somewhat aloof, but dad was very confident, and
seemed like quite the joker. I don’t think they were
supposed to let on that they were on the next TAR but
I specifically heard them mention it. (dad did anyhow)
 

• Our first spoiled contestants, by name:
Mike & Mel White (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17789.msg364872.html#msg364872), gay father and son from LA.

Funny how so much of the entertertainment world is centered in just one area.  After transplanting myself from the midwest I was excited to see the celebrities in Los Angeles. I had no idea how prolific “the industry” is around here.

From Romaniafan:

Quote
A few seconds later an Asian couple with backpacks came running through the doors.
Few minutes later two girls, looked to be in their 20s, came running out shouting at the crowd asking where the taxis were.
two slightly older African American ladies
another was two rather short men.

We also have:

Father/Son who planned on wearing dark blue (likely to be false IMO)

So so far, we have 5 possible team descriptions:

-An asian couple
-2 girls in their 20s
-two older black girls
-two short men
- and a possible father/son team (who could be the short men lol)

There was also the perhaps late 30's or 40-something lady my friend was sitting next to on the Munich-Bucharest plane ("a Kelly Ripa lookalike", she said), and her teammate Chrissy (also est in her late 30's or 40's), supposedly both Southwest Airlines flight attendants!

Hi romaniafan !

There's a bunch of Chrissy's and a few Kelly Ripa lookalikes...

I know who I'm going to be rooting for!  If there's any team that can overcome my desire to see an all-female team win, it's an Asian couple.  So I'm rooting for the Asian couple.

Kiwi, I already made a list, but I think this is more correct:


-An asian couple
-2 girls in their 20s
-two older black girls
-Another F/F team (one named Chrissy) late 30s - 40 something lady; both are supposed to be Southwest Airlines flight attendants.
-two short men
-Tall Man and Short Woman
- and a possible father/son team (who could be the short men lol)


The chances are Chrissy and her friend or the girls in their 20s are the "dustin and kandice" team that were helped, because I doubt they would cast any more F/F teams.

I did add the tall man short woman to the list thoug.

Around 7, I was again heading up towards the plaza AGAIN when we were passed by a team heading down the street, towards the vicinity of the Piazza Grande or the castle, we thought.  This team was two younger people (early to mid 20s).  I think the woman I saw was blond, but not sure.  She was definitely pretty and tall - guessing 5'9 or more.  The "producer" (ie 4th person in group, not carrying a backpack or camera) stopped her to adjust her shirt or necklace as they walked down the street.

Hello?  :tup:

-two older black girls
-Another F/F team (one named Chrissy) late 30s - 40 something lady; both are supposed to be Southwest Airlines flight attendants.
-two short men
-Tall Man and Short Woman
- and a possible father/son team (This team has not been spotted by anybody, just on the list because of blogger over hearing a Dad/Son talking about being on TAR14
**A tall blond woman (about 5'9) was also spotted, but with no mention of a team mate she could be a member of one of the above mentioned teams.

More on the 2 girls thanks to Serious

 
*One particular team of young women looked too manicured for such a contest at such an hour...
*I did get a close look at a team of two young Caucasian girls who could have been models, as thin and attractive as they were.

From Michaels blog find in Austria we have:
1) A young man was driving, what I guess was his wife or girlfriend was behind him. He and the woman were frazzled, amazingly desperate! And they were covered in what looked like an amazing amount blood, guts, and pumpkin rot. But it all looked fake. Plus they had tons of make-up on.

2)Just then, another white car pulled into the parking lot. A different set of people but with camera and boom men. They held each other's hands and headed right past us through a different door than the main entrance. I wanted to tell them that the path they were taking was a Detour, but I figured it wasn't my place. In fact, a staff member came up to us a short time later and asked us in German if we'd said anything to the couple.

3)We saw bobbing through the trees what looked like a TV camera light. Two women were running together. One was hobbling. The other said, "I'm going ahead a bit," and the other countered with, "OK, go ahead." Off into the park they went, clueless as the day was long.

In the photo of the blonde lady and blue shirted man, they seem to me to be in the 'middle aged' and category based on their clothes the way they are wearing them. The lady's trousers seem quite high waisted, with a belt and top tucked in, and the guy also has shirt tucked in, and *may* have a slight loss of hair.

The only thing that I can see that may be able to be identified from the 2nd photo and compared to other future photos is the back pack. :duno:

Thanks for your e-mail and excitement and I'm glad to be able to help
patching some of your Amazing Race puzzle!


Each team seems to have a cameraman and a sound engineer
assigned and closely followed.

I also saw other 3 teams that got off (I don't really know how many are there in
total though). One older couple looking less agitated than the rest, another one
of looking-like sisters wearing green shirts, and the other team with an African
American lady.

I'm attaching you another non-zoomed photo at the station too, taking at the
same time. I'm guessing that the older guy in there was the taxi driver.

And after TARA 2 we all know that being deaf is not necessarily a handicap on the race--there can be some times where signing could be an advantage!!

But I think the team dynamics of this will be SO interesting to watch! Can't hear directions from your partner if you are driving, and can't give directions if you are navigating...This will add a whole new layer to our race!

Let's summaries the teams that we know of, you may correct me or add other info:

Older couple – seen at Switzerland and Austria (photo evidence, last sighting)

Girls in their 20's – seen at Austria (photo evidence), Romania and Thailand ,Phuket (photo evidence, last sighting)

Couple in Orange, woman is deaf – seen at Switzerland (photo evidence) and Thailand, Bangkok connecting to Phucket (last sighting)

Male little people – seen at Romania and at Thailand, Bangkok connecting to Phucket (last sighting)

Sister's in Green (Kelly Ripa lookalike???) – seen at Switzerland, Romania and at a Beijing to Tokyo flight (last sighting)

Father and son - seen at Thailand, Bangkok connecting to Phucket (last sighting)

African American women – seen at Switzerland and Romania (last sighting)

Asian couple – seen at Romania (last sighting)


Older men - seen at Thailand, Bangkok connecting to Phucket (last sighting) , could be the father or little people teams.

Evidence of couples
–  Very vague and could be the Orange or Asian couple- Switzerland (pretty tall women) , Austria.

The guy from the orange team have a look that could be mistaken for asian (although I think he's mediterranean) , I think that's the guy and his grilfriend.
the first description was of an asian couple and not a asian men and his girlfriend , so I think those are diffrent teams, but who knows...  those sightings are so subjective that you don't know anything unless u have a photo evidance. Phuket  was very late in the race, unless they are all decoys I don't think that there's so many teams left so I treid to narrow it down, but yeah your guess is as good as mine.

Just a reminder, many deaf people have cochlear inplants and can hear fine. Also the term "tall" is pretty subjective. To Charla, everyone is tall. I have been looking at those pics of the blonde girl by the van. She seems to be pretty "tall" to me. Maybe around 5'8" or 5'9". To me, that would be in the tall range for a female.

Just a rumor… (The Amazing Race 14)
September 30, 2008

I overheard a father/son talking about their upcoming participation in The Amazing Race season 14.  I don’t think they are supposed to talk about their participation, so I won’t get into a more specific descriptions.

--Father and son are gay, the son might be the writer that Reese Witherspoon talked about on Leno (http://www.celebitchy.com/9483/reese_witherspoon_watches_tv_all_day/). And I think I know who the son/writer's identity but don't want to reveal it just yet.

Personal Quotes
On Chuck & Buck: "The original nugget came from a scene early in the film where my character Buck grabs Chuck's balls. I thought it would be a real uncomfortable thing to start a movie off with a scene of a guy grabbing another guy's dick. Totally unrepentantly. Not like in your typical Dumb-and-Dumber-type comedy or an earnest gay movie. From that idea I started to ask myself, "What situation would lead to this?"

And casting probably thought they had hit the GLB&T team gold mine with the lesbian ministers in 12.

After all the model/actors the show's dumped on us over the years, I've got to say it's nice seeing them casting people who work on the production side of Hollywood instead.

Mike White is an actor  :cmas4 as well as a writer - I remember him best as Jack Black's friend (roommate?) in School Of Rock.

Well if it makes you feel better, he's more of a writter then an actor. Look on his imbdb thing, he has a lot more writting credits than acting. I was watching this interview he gave, and he says that he only has small roles if he decides to appear in one of his movies.  :cmas16

So since we know that Mike White - a 'B' list writer/actor is in the race - I guess this post takes on more significance.

Are there any other celeb participants?

The only details she shared are what I've told you already.

Although, if we put the pieces together, the gay father/son/actor team are the ones that were called 'really nice people' by the deaf woman.

Here Michael, I found this at SUCKS O_o ........JUST KIDDING  :cmaslol

OK well, I was sent this on facebook,
take it for what it's worth ....

Quote
I have some information regarding TAR 14, but unfortunately the website won't send me an activation email, so I am passing this info on the only way possible for me at the moment.

One of my mothers friends saw several teams in Thailand and because she is a TAR fan, she recognized them straight away and began talking to them.

One of the teams was the father/son team

One was the young dating team in orange, one of whom was deaf.

The third team was a team of two male dwarfs (possibly the 'two short men')

She spoke with the deaf woman for a long time in the airport, and she whispered 'we're in a race' to her. The deaf woman also said to trip the dwarfs, they aren't nice people.

There were camera men with every team who were being very careful about people taking photos. In spite of this, she said she managed to get several good photos of the teams she saw.

I will send the photos when I can get my hands on them.

If this were true that would mean the F4 is: two short men, father/son, orange auburn couple, and a f/f team ....

I'm not buying it, but i wanted to post it anyways just in case lol.

Okay, I want to give y'all a couple of updates.

It is being reported elsewhere that the deaf person on the race is a male, not a female as I was told.

I will again say that I am being told that the deaf person is a woman who relies primarily on signing for communication.

Additionally,  this post (as reported to Michael by Coutzy) suggested the possibility of two male "little people"...

I think we can all agree that there are two short men on the race, based on several sightings. However, I am NOT being told that there are two "male little people" on the race, and I truly do think that that would have been mentioned by one of our other sources by now were that the case.

So in the absence of further proof (photos, etc) , I am going to ask that we do NOT assume that the the two short men seen are "little people"--as of this writing I do NOT believe that they are.  Just want to be clear here because I keep reading elsewhere that RFF says there are "dwarves" on the race, and RFF is saying no such thing. :groan:

I would of course be delighted to see photo evidence confirming this, it would be wonderful casting!

Now that would be something.

And, if its true, CBS can be proud that they managed to keep it under wraps for that long.

If one deaf person came along, you wouldn't think about it.

But if two deaf people come along in the same group, you would think twice about it.

From the CBS message boards  (http://www.cbs.com/forum/posts/list/25532.page), does this work with our Guilin info? plus short men  :yess:

Quote
   

 We were in the Guangzhou China airport November 17th around 11pm and saw a team of two caucasian men wearing backpacks running through the airport with a cameraman and producer in tow. They were in the baggage claim area and were in a hurry to find something and stopped at hte information desk to ask directions. The cameraman was working to capture every move. The men were both short and appeared to be related. One had a fanny pack that was visible with red/yellow/back horizontal stripes on it. We went up to them and said "Are you with the Amazing Race?". They said "No", but we are waiting for cast pictures to see if they were telling the truth or not. 



and more from the above poster ....

They were both rather short (5 ft 5 or less my guess) with brownish red hair. They looked like they were related. I think at least one of them wore glasses. They were "thick" build but not fat. They were wearing shorts and tshirts and both had on back packs. They were very much in a hurry and looked stressed. There was a camera man that was filming their every move and a person carrying a microphone that was stuck in front of their faces as well. Hope that helps

Hey all, newbie here...
Firstly, I'd like to thank 'Puddin' for all the spoilers and hard work here over the various seasons.

Thought I'd share some possible cast info that MayanSun from SuvivorFever and myself came across when digging for Survivor: Tocantins cast.

Meet the SouthWest Airline flight attendant(Kelly Rippa look-alike)...
Jodi Wincheski from Houston TX. Still working on 'Chrissy', her TAR partner.

(http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/tar_jodi_wincheski_01.jpg)

Meet Deaf male castmember Luke Adams 22, from Monument/Colorado Springs CO...possibly paired w/Margaret Adams(mother?/sister?) Luke attended Rochester Institute of Tech and acquainted w/Christy Smith of Survivor Amazon.
(http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/tar_luke_adams_01.jpg) (http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/tar_luke_adams_02.jpg)

Meet Victoria Pfeifer Hunt(46) and husband Brad Hunt(51) from Columbus OH. She's a tax assessor and he works for a electric utility power company. They both do adventure races/mtn biking/orienteering activities.
(http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/tar_victoria_hunt_02.jpg)
They might be the couple in this pic:
http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/new-2.jpg (http://www.survivorfever.net/images_tar/new-2.jpg)

And finally, the Auburn-orange team of Preston McCamy of Birmingham AL, graduate of Auburn U and Jennifer H of Columbia SC
 (http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj256/FreddsFotos/TAR/TAR14OrangeFXPreston-JennH.jpg)

We'll see what else turns up...enjoy the show guys.

Edit to add Luke's age of 22
Edit (1/10/08) to delete the Marc Cardinale pic and ref, since Marc kindly showed up to state his non-cast status. I'm killing the pic from the host source as well so it will disappear from a couple other re-posts by others. I hate to impose publicity on innocents. Sorry 'bout that Marc.

Luke Adams, 18, of Monument, Colo., met Smith last spring when she visited his high school. He liked what she had to say about being successful if you plan, practice, have patience and persevere.

“That's something I'll remember all my life,” Adams said.



And Rochester has a technical college for the deaf:

So we have a deaf contestant.  Another person for me to root for.  No, I'm not deaf but I went to a Special Needs Christian camp when I was younger and I knew someone who was deaf and I learned a very small amount of sign language there.  Also, I rooted for Heather Whitestone, a former Miss America -- and I even met her once and got her autograph when my parents & I were at the Miss America Boardwalk Parade when the pageant was being held in Atlantic City.  So I'm definitely rooting for this contestant -- as well as for the Asian couple and the all-female teams (the nice ones).

And this talk of the man taking Dustin and Kandice up to Versaca Valley. Well some of the contestants have a women called Amanda Blackledge and she is blonde and her picture is of her with another blonde!

Left is her right looks like her mom  :lol:

She lives in California and is friends with Jodi of Texas and Jennifer of Preston and Jenn from South Carolina. What a coincidence  :lol:

After looking at your summary I think we have our 11 teams and the blondes like Dustin and Kandice will be Jodi and Chrissy or Christy or whoever. I mean Jodi is a light blonde and her partner could also be too!  :yess:

Amanda from the left is 22 or around there that other women looks older, quite a bit older could be 40

you know, maybe Jodi and Chrissy are the 2 girls (assuming Chrissy is a brunette) and Amanda and her partner are the "double mint twins".

Post by: puddin on January 10, 2009, 08:21:16 PM
I think we are getting confused here

Jodi is 40ish (Blond) and the other set of girls are in their in their 20's (brown hair, the other had lighter hair, but not blond)
Maybe just maybe this Amanda is partnered with an unknown male?

Female Female Friends:
Jodi Wincheski from Houston, TX probably paired with "Chrissy" and are SouthWest Airline flight attendants.

**She was sitting right next to one of the contestants, my friend said she was a Kelly Ripa lookalike. This contestant had another friend sitting up a few rows, who she kept referring to as Chrissy.
**The lady also told the flight attendant that she and her friend Chrissy are Southwest Airlines flight attendants back home.
***She said she also had noticed one other team of two girls with backpacks and camera crews, which I suspect *may* have been the pair I (romaniafan) saw stalled outside baggage claim, but not sure.
****My friend said the racer sitting next to her on the plane had mentioned that others "from our group" had been on an earlier flight that day. And as I may have already mentioned, she was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of her daughter that said "I love you wherever I go".


Female Female team
**I would guess that they were mid- to late- twenties, but it was getting dark so I could be totally off. The one in the pink had brown hair, the other had lighter hair, but not blond.
*** two girls, looked to be in their 20s

Air China flight from Beijiing to Tokyo:
*we found ourselves watching the double mint twins in matching sweatshirts, bleached teeth and badly dyed red hair preen the entire time for the cameras


Now we have his photo from Phuket and thru Neobies detective work, it confirms that this is a female team

Just to put more solid evidence in for our contestants, via MySpace (thanks Jodi!)

Jodi Wincheski

About me:
I really like to travel, out of the country preferably since I am all over the U.S. every week with work. I play 2 man beach volleyball almost every weekend from March-October. I like to snow ski in the winter. I love watching my daughter play soccer and basketball. She keeps me busy with all of her activities and friends. My life is kinda crazy and I like it that way. I'm a little bit of an adrenaline junkie and I love new things. I'm very competitive and I enjoy challenges. I read a lot, love movies and great food. I was married for 8 years and have been divorced for 9. I have an 11 year old daughter and she is the coolest kid I've ever met. I'm crazy about her and I feel really lucky to be her mom. I have joint custody with my ex and we all get along very well. I really like my life and I have a great group of friends.

Television: The Amazing Race, Lost, Survivor, Brothers and Sisters, Gray's Anatomy, The Bachelor, Entourage, Friday Night Lights

Occupation: Flight Attendant

Friends include: Preston Mccamy, Jennifer H, and Victoria Hunt

Victoria Hunt

Under a photo of her and Jerri Manthy, which appears to have been taken this spring, she writes: Odd chance encounter, hours after my own casting call. FYI, Jerri is a goddess in person!

Don't really know how to use this yet. I am new to this site.  I actually just learned about all of you and was excited to meet others as obsessed with TAR as I have been for a while now. 

No one else has mentioned it yet so I thought I would help you out a bit.  A TAR 14 commercial just showed during half-time of football game.  Cast isn't posted yet and it was a quick view, but one team stood out to me! Could be additional info for the 20s something all-female team?... They showed two of the hottest women I have ever seen - both look like Victoria's Secret models - with red hair in green shirts.  No bad dye job, whoever wrote that.  I don't think there was a hair dying contest after seeing that.

  They look like sister and they both have bad red dye jobs and green shirts so they fit the description.
they are also freacklishly tall - matches to other sightings.
I think they are the team from the pics in Austria and Thailand.

sadly there are only two male/male teams in the promo (unless I'm mistaken) and they both rather short, who do u think are the "dwarfs" from Thailand?

Well, by the looks of it and her friends on Facebook, I think there's a good chance that the blonde is Amanda. So before the cast is even released (I'm assuming Wednesday; CBS isn't gona overshadow Obama), I've narrowed it down to rooting for either Preston / Jennifer or Amanda / her boyfriend.

I'm gona do some last minute Facebook searching but I doubt we'll find anything we haven't all ready!

I like the Asian couple and the redheads.  I always liked red hair on women, and I have my own hair colored red (it's actually brown).  I also like the team with the deaf person on it.  Man, this is a huge problem -- I have too many teams I like!

This looks like Siberia to me. Wow. Them editors are spoiling us wayyyyy too much.  :lol:

I think the person pulling in the rickshaw ibelongs to the redhead team. She's taller (look at her bending down) than the Asian girl. And I think the guy is not the type to wear short with those shoes, imo.

Anyways, Michael seems to be rooting for the redheads already. Sigh.

Hey all, huge TAR fan here. I've been lurking these boards since around TAR9, but have been to scared to post anything. Anyway...

I was bored and decided to look up the spoiled contestants on IMDB.com to see if any of them are mactors, and lo and behold, I think I found the "short men," Michael and Mark Munoz. Sorry, I don't know how to post pictures, but Mark's profile picture has a VERY strong resemblance to one of the men in the shot of them with their heads sticking out of the train window. While the other man's face is harder to see, he also has a resemblance to Michael Munoz's IMDB profile picture. Maybe someone else can post the pics or confirm this?

Sorry if it's not them, but I'm positive it is! Anyway, Michael's bio also states how he likes to surf in the morning with his brothers, Mario and MARK. They also both work as stuntmen, with Michael being Danny DeVito's stunt double. And the most interesting tidbit I found is that they both stand at 4'9" tall (does that qualify as "little people?)" Again, sorry if I'm wrong...

Which means that men will have the last word.  Rather, at least one guy, not necessarily a M/M team.  Go figure!  LOL!

However, if FF teams run a great race, with similar success to D and K, then let's hope we finally get it this time.  Better yet, let's get a guarantee and have the final 3 be the three FF teams!

Mini Biography
Mike, a native of Santa Monica, California, grew up at the beach surfing, skateboarding and doing beach gymnastics by the Santa Monica pier. As a youth he enjoyed impersonating the "Greats" like Al Jolson, Mario Lanza, Sammy Davis Jr., Laurel and Hardy and the Three Stooges. By the time Mike was 12 years old he was not only a top award winning AAU Jr Olympic Diver, but also a professional dancer in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Flamenco, Hindu, all Polynesian styles and yes, even figure skating. At the age of 13, he went to work for Disney as "Mowgli" in the Christmas Parade and continued to work for Disney for many years as Mickey Mouse, Pinocchio and many others. Mike also started taking acting and voice classes and decided that entertainment was absolutely his life's path.

Having always been into surfing, he was also one of the early (late 60s and 70s), innovative trend setting skateboarders from Santa Monica/Venice, aka "Dogtown". Quite often Mike and his buddies (and brothers, Mario and Mark) would surf in the morning and drive up to the local mountains to ski in the afternoon, come home and skateboard all night. This lead to learning many outdoor sports like rock climbing, roller blading, snowboarding, mountain biking, motorcycles, horses and more. This also made him decide to pursue a career in stunt work, which has been a natural and rewarding transition. Mike loves to act, dance and sing and will do so at the drop of a hat.

Mike married his long time friend, Marisa, in 1983 and has two stepsons, David and Kristopher. Mike has known Marisa since kindergarten and they have always been very close. They have, at the time of this writing, 7 grandchildren - Liliana, Marisa, Anthony, Kris, Robert, Keoni and Koa.

The Little People of America website says:

Quote
Little People of America, Inc., is a national non-profit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families.  We are the only dwarfism support organization that includes all 200+ forms of dwarfism.  There are an estimated 30,000 people with dwarfism in the United States, and 651,700 in the world. No other non-profit in the world provides more resources, support and information for people with dwarfism.

Membership is offered to those people who are usually no taller than 4'10" in height. Their short stature is generally caused by one of the more than 200 medical conditions known as dwarfism.

And I do believe that the preferred term IS "Little People", NOT dwarves or midgets, please.

Coutzy, what someone uses as a term of reference is not as important as the reality of that situation. I have looked at over 10 definitions of "dwarf" and they all basically come down to "abnormally small in stature". The fact that some people refer to a 4'9" person as a dwarf does not make it so. I found no specific delineation of the maxmum height for a dwarf, so I think we should go with Peach's identification of 4'10" as the meximum height for "little people", which should be the only reference of this type for them on RFF for the next 4 weeks and entirety of AR14.

Thank you apskip and Snooky!

That was what I was trying to say.

We went through this with Charla, and I was educated myself on this. "Dwarfism" is the medical condition. The terms "midgets" and to a lesser extent "dwarves" are considered derogatory when applied to "Little People". 

I too did not realize that the cut off is considered to be 4' 10", but what counts is how Michael and Mark refer to themselves. Since they use the term "Little People", so will we.

So please, as Apskip has said, let's all use the preferred terminology here from now on, okay? Short men and Little People are both acceptable, "Dwarves" and "Midgets" are NOT.

Thanks! :ghug:

So team 10 are Michael/Mark and are brothers. Cool!. We havent had brothers since season 10. Do we have ages. I would say Michael being Married in 1983 could put him between 45-55 and I am leaning towards more closer to 50 and Mark is in or around 40's?!

And their names on the race are Mark/Mike or Mark and Michael

The point I was trying to make there was that there was a team of little people that made it to Thailand, which some people were doubting. I wasn't trying to make any derogatory comments towards anybody.

The problem is that since the rest of the info provided was partially inaccurate and never explained, it forces us to question this part as well, as much as it would be helpful to believe it.

I very  well understand that sources are not always completely correct, and expect that this may very well be just a miscommunication somehow. But we really need some more objective evidence here.

So unless you can re-clarify directly with her what she saw or heard, or better yet, provide those discussed photos, we sadly have to continue to treat this as speculation.

A bit about the Whites here (http://pedrowatcher.freedomblogging.com/2009/01/19/screenwriter-actor-mike-white-on-the-amazing-race/3326/) from The Watcher that includes a shout-out to RFF.

Tech note: I found it through Twingly (http://www.twingly.com/microblogsearch), a search engine from Sweden that includes blogs and microblogs; I found this (http://twitter.com/eeeyouareeye/statuses/1137483166) from a Pasadena lady through the microblog search. (previous posts included "I think my car hates me" and "Suspecting the barista gave me decaf" which is why I usually don't bother with Twitter  :lol:)

We are finally able to "meet" Jennifer, who is racing with Preston McCamy.

She is Jennifer Hopka, from Columbia, SC.  She was apparently a contestant in the 2003 competition for the 50th Anniversary Playmate, and was in the documentary, The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Playmate Search (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0399808/).

Oddly enough, she is one of several reality TV cast members to come out of Columbia. Others include Brooke Jackson (TAR 13), Jaime Dugan (Survivor China), Jamie Hill (TAR 10), and Ben Fagan (Pirate Master winner).

This is the contestant spoiler/speculation thread, not the contestant chatter who I love/who I don't thread. :meme
Once we have the cast reveal, each contestant will have their own thread where you will be able to put all those well-considered comments.

Let's try to stay on-topic, shall we?

And thanks to some extra Detective help from Slowhatch this morning, it now seems that Tammy's race partner may  be her older brother Victor.

He too has an impressive educational background:
Harvard Law School, J.D., 1996: magna cum laude; Board of Student Advisors
Stanford University, B.A., 1993: with distinction and honors in Political Science and Ethics in Society; Phi Beta Kappa

And he is also a Partner in a prestigious law firm, specializing in Business Trial and Litigation and Entertainment and Media Litigation!

:whew this could be one impressive team!

It's not Krysti Coursey. "Christi" is the correct spelling.

Christi Day is from Dallas and not a flight attendant, so it's not her.

Giving you a BIG  :bigwelcome to RFF, we SO appreciate the help! Great to have a bit more confirmation of the teams!

We did have Jodi's partner narrowed down (behind the scenes) to either her sister or that Christi, but didn't want to perhaps misidentify an innocent, so thanks so much for helping on that one too!  And great to have a name for Amanda's partner as well, I love it when we finally "meet" our racers, one of my favorite days!

Heee...now about those other teams....   :lol:

Meet Cara Rosenthal! Believed to be one of our "redheaded" racing women.


She is a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader and lives in the Miami area.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14Cara7x.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14cara3x.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14cara8.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14Caraand.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14cara9.png)

She can be seen modelling a swimsuit here: third model in.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/02/02/earlyshow/living/beauty/main2425704.shtml

Her partner may also be a former cheerleader, we hope to able to confirm those details later today...

Indeed, Cara is one of the redheads!!

(http://i42.[banned image hosting site].com/28kok6v.jpg)

A bit more on her:

She's 26, and works as a project developer/project manager for a non-profit organization in Miami. She's also a law student. She lives in Boca Raton, and previously went to UCLA.

She was a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader for about 3 years (2005-2007, I think, but it might have been earlier)...

Good work on finding Cara and for getting the correct spelling of ChristiE. Thought for sure it was Christi, but glad it's cleared up now.

I was just watching the Documentary Channel and saw a promo for a doco called for the Bible tells me so about gays and homo***uals and I was watching it because it brought up gay reverends or pastors and I immediatly thought of Mel White and guess what around 20 seconds later there he was. I expected him to...how can I put it...sound different but it was quite sad and it is apparently very new done in 2007 so it was good to see him!

Thanks puddin and Kiwi!

Well if peach has one in mind, I'm ready to hear it. I have one as well, but it could be off. I was looking at news on the Miami Dolphins cheerleaders site, and they have this artical on a former Miami cheerleader that was Ms. Pennsylvania last year. Beauty Queens seem to always grace the race, and this one does look like the other girl. Her name is Lauren Merola. Of course, no way of even knowing if she cheered when Cara was on the squad.

Post by: georgiapeach on January 26, 2009, 03:14:06 AM
Okay, this is what I have. But I am going to preface this by saying that, unlike our other cast posts that we were able to reliably confirm before sharing, this one is PURE SPECULATION and unfortunately could not be confirmed. So I have chosen to refer to this person by her first name only and have removed some other identifying material in case this is a non TAR person, and I will ask you all to do the same, okay? If we are wrong, then apologies to both this person and to our racer.


North, Lauren Merola looks very close to our racer, and did indeed cheer near the same time as Cara. But I am going to say probably not, based on a couple of Detective suspicions, and because (this will sound weird to the guys), she parts her hair on the wrong side. :lol:(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14LaurenMerola2.jpg)

So this is who we are trying to find:

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14redheadatthestart2x.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14redheadatthestart1x.png)

My possibility is Jaime, who also cheered for the Miami Dolphins at the same time as Cara did, and also lives in the South Florida area.

Here is a brief BIO, followed by some pics...

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14Jaimebioblockedx.png)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14Jaime4x.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14jaimex.png)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2014/TAR14Jaime5x.png)

Y'all feel free to speculate on this, and if anyone out there knows the answer and wants to tell us yes or no, we would greatly appreciate the info either on the forum or privately.

Otherwise, we should know later today! :hearts:

Go team Southwest! Has to be the best airline in the world, not to mention it is highly competitive just to get a job there. SW  flight attendants are not you stereotypical crew. Do some research on the company. These girls are gonna be smart and wise about getting around whether it be plane, train, ship or snowmobile  :jam:.

I just posted the Margaret analysis in the other thread.  oops!  I agree based upon her facial features and her little pony tail (look at the cab pic, she has her hair up in a little pony tail).   Her chin has a point to it and the profile of the woman in Phuket has the same shape, IMO.

I am curious about Luke.  One of the things I (or I should say we) love about the show is getting to know new people just a little.

And while we get to know his facial and body reactions to both events and people (not to mention his mother), I wonder if they are going to provide translations of his signing for the viewers.

I mean hell they often provide subtitles for teams that speak english, any thoughts?

I wasn't thinking of Asia (and I forgot, i mean washed the race out of my brain with bleach), But Sarah was kicked to the curb (sorry) 7th place.  Charla made it to 6th place I believe in season 5.

Now of course she was third in All Stars, but that's her encore (and I think most of those racers with the real exception of Danielle should have a much greater grasp of what a team needs to do to stay around longer).

Adrian won TARA 2, and he was deaf also.

or her mouth.  But I personally think Mirna is a bigger handicap then Charla's height.

I'd say the same about Mirna being Charla's real handicap.

Ain't that the truth, mswood? I think Mirna's "Oh, this is too heavy, you carry it, Char-la" or "Run, Char-la!" was more of the handicap of that team than Charla's height. To be honest, I would take Charla on my team anyday. Mirna? Not so much.

I am curious about Luke.  One of the things I (or I should say we) love about the show is getting to know new people just a little.

And while we get to know his facial and body reactions to both events and people (not to mention his mother), I wonder if they are going to provide translations of his signing for the viewers.

I mean hell they often provide subtitles for teams that speak english, any thoughts?

I believe the answer to this is definitely yes.  :angel:

I truly hope so peach.  I want to be able to get as much from all the racers as possible.

Is it safe to say that the woman in Bangkok lifting the chariot is Margie? Because it doesn't look like Cara or Jamie, so I'm assuming Luke & Margie make it to Thailand

Good job Uncle Bill for leading us in the right direction  :yess: :jumpy:! Very well done everyone! I am so so impressed! You all are truly amazing! :jam:

So if we are thinking that the Segway is a detour? and the cakes are also a detour then they should be very nearby? We have the cheerleaders covered in "gore" which might be the cake throwing meaning they have switched detours or cakes or the segways could be a task to get a clue?
