Just a little thing to remember when spotting teams live: remember the tags are most likely not going to be orange or numbered.

Look for this instead:

Teams in order of appearance (numbered as such because it might match up with the old bag tag system), and using Macaroon's descriptions...

3. Male/Male, wearing green
4. Female/Female, wearing black/light blue
5. Female/Female, young women wearing lime green
6. Male/Female, young couple in white/purple
7. Male/Female, older male with blonde female, wearing yellow/black, possibly father/daughter
8. Female/Female, young girls wearing pink
9. Male/Unknown, African-American team in orange

Which leaves unaccounted for from Macaroon's descriptions...
Male/Male team
A team of older women, or an older couple
Young attractive couple in lime green pants
Unknown

Again?  LOL!


I agree with Paron.  Looks like the show is improving again.  While we'll have to see how things play out during the season until the finale, seeing 4 F/F teams is really nice.  And seeing them depart from the East Coast is awesome as well!

At least the pink girls aren't BOTH blonde this time, so there's that.

We don't know if it's definitely four.  Remember -- the older women's team could just as easily be an older couple.  I'm sure the brunette (or redhead) is a woman, but the gray-haired one might be an older man.  Still, if it is four, I'm glad they're finally willing to go outside of their comfort zone.  I was always pissed when they'd feel okay with stacking the deck with four (TAR2, TAR3, TAR10, TAR15) or even FIVE (TAR4) men's teams, yet never felt comfortable enough to cast more than three women's teams.  If they finally cast four, it's a welcome change in casting.  And it increases the odds of getting that winning women's team that eluded them since the BQs came so close in All-Stars, and then, the redheads not too long after.  And then, Brent & Caite ruining it last season for completely immature, personal reasons.

And I think the yellow team has to be a father/daughter one.  Has to be.  Not an older couple.  And that no mother/son team is in the spot of team one.  Just an older couple or two older women.

Tomorrow morning I will be leaving on a trip overseas, and Iím super excited! Iíll be a part of a project that Iíve been preparing months for :) The downside to this though is that Iíll have no internet for the next four weeks that Iím gone. Yikes!! No internet for four weeks is going to be difficult, especially having to leave you guys (this is where you go ďawwwĒ). I shot a video about me leaving and I couldnít upload it tonight for some reason, but I have a friend that is going to upload it for me soon (probably monday).

But yeah, I wanted to give you guys a heads up before I leave, this is going to be a crazy trip (wish me luck!) When I get back though, Iíll be right back to posting more videos, no doubt. Also, the web series Funemployed will be releasing soon, so episodes will be coming out while Iím gone.

Thatís it for now, hope you guys have a wonderful start to your summer, gotta get back to packing for this trip. Bye Guys!!

Thanks to some new friends, I have been sent an enormous influx of information from sightings in Boston....many teams photos and descriptions!! :hearts:

But sadly all of this info needs to be correlated and closely reviewed before posting, and I am in the midst of a long work stretch. So it will come, but may well be the weekend before everything is up.


Meanwhile, I can confirm that there are 4 F/F teams ( red, pink, peach, lime green), what appears to be a Father/daughter team (yellow), a M/F team with loads of tattoes (grey/black), and 3 M/M teams (African-American, Asian {Wu's}, and young males)11 teams...and no Mother/son team.

And awesome job Mrs Shrek and Neobie on the video compilation of teams!!

Colors seen at the airport are apparently somewhat different from the boat ones.

I wasn't really trying to single you out,  suzuken, there were loads of posts today blindly requoting unnecessarily. It makes it hard to read, and puts an unnecessary strain on the server.

Also, we are going to try to be a little stricter this year about inappropriate posts....if you have a spoiler, or are discussing a spoiler, no worries. But ongoing spec in the spoilers thread may be moved once, after that your posts will just be deleted...so pay attention to where things go please. The big complaint I hear about RFF is that the spoiler threads are full of chatter, so let's try to keep them on target. For people like me, trying to catch up on pages of posts, a lot of blahblah is hard to read.

Here is an article about Megan and Soccer (http://www.localsports.biz/alumni/alum_soccer.htm):

Quote
Virgina Tech (Megan Strawther, Rossmoor/LAHS '06) )  upset #13 ranked Tennessee 2-1 last Friday.  But then the Hokies (probably still in shock over the LSU pummeling of their football teams the night before) tied Loyola of Maryland 1-1 on Sunday.

And one about Robin and Soccer (http://gamedaymagazine.com/2006/04/robin_chidester_a_formidable_p.php):

Quote
One athlete that will help lead the Lady Cavs to the upper tiers of competition this season is seventeen-year-old senior Robin Chidester. At 5-10, she is tall, lean and, most importantly, strong. Her presence will be a formidable one this year. But like her ability to make balls sail well over opponents‚Äô heads, her size is something that Chidester is all too willing to use to her advantage. ‚ÄúI like for the play to be really physical,‚ÄĚ she says. ‚ÄúI use my stature to my advantage.‚ÄĚ

Looks like both are Virginia Tech and Soccer.

Not sure which thread this is most appropriate in but the 3 teams on the first flight, AA 108 are:

- Male/Male Team (late 20s-mid 30s)
- Both of the young couples

The male/male is the first team to get tickets. The third team was reported to be wearing lime green pants. This does not match any of the clothing seen in the starting line photos, but teams may have had different clothing on at the airport than the starting line.

Assuming one of these young couples is the tattoo team, this would mean teams were equalized in customs at LHR (according to this post... (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21997.msg525177.html#msg525177))

Kevin and his father are most likely recruited because they're "famous". Kevin's YouTube channel is one of the biggests. And that's why he can be in the race even thought he is not 21 (like Caite).

Wouldn't hurt that he has a legal guardian with him, either.

I hope this is the right thread..
It looks like either Kevin/Kenny Wu  or the heavily tattoed M/F  team are the first out.
Would be kind of ironic if the first team identified  was also  the first one out...

according to joey, the Wu's were racing against a m/f team wearing black/dark grey with lots of tats.  That's our tattoo team.

Quote
C) Kenny & Kevin Wu - M/M, Green, Asian Father/Son 10th/Last Place?
K) M/M, Dark Blue, Black-haired 9th Place?

I am absolutely positive that this is backwards.
Kevin/Kenny were in dark blue at the airport. They were in a footrace for last place at the pitstop.
The green team is 2 young, kind of goofy guys.  They arrived at the pitsop and had to leave and return later.

Goodbye Internet!
May 21, 2010
Tomorrow morning I will be leaving on a trip overseas, and Iím super excited! Iíll be a part of a project that Iíve been preparing months for :) The downside to this though is that Iíll have no internet for the next four weeks that Iím gone. Yikes!! No internet for four weeks is going to be difficult, especially having to leave you guys (this is where you go ďawwwĒ). I shot a video about me leaving and I couldnít upload it tonight for some reason, but I have a friend that is going to upload it for me soon (probably monday).

But yeah, I wanted to give you guys a heads up before I leave, this is going to be a crazy trip (wish me luck!) When I get back though, Iíll be right back to posting more videos, no doubt. Also, the web series Funemployed will be releasing soon, so episodes will be coming out while Iím gone.

Thatís it for now, hope you guys have a wonderful start to your summer, gotta get back to packing for this trip. Bye Guys!!

Kevin


The videos will tell the story.









Many thanks to wenger for the tip!!


Wow!  An Asian American team!  I hope they stick around past the first leg, although with the father being older that might be tough.

No, that is not a team.

I am working on them, honest, but it is complicated. I have a lot of stuff in a lot of formats, (thanks to everyone!!) and they all have to be marked. And this is my stretch of 14 hr+ work days, so I am doing the best I can.

My best estimate right now is some tomorrow night and the rest Sat.

Chills, that is a great shot from captjoey...can you do more from him?

Okay...this is marked but I have uploaded it now on [banned image hosting site]s, photobucket and mediafire and can't get the audio to play, if anyone has a solution, please EMAIL me.

This is a video from drjtrade with thanks!! Security was extraordinarily tight, he did well to get these.

On the left is the blue/black F/F team.

In the center are the pinks.

Bending over on the right is the yellow F from what we are calling the possible Father/daughter team.

The scene then switches to Kevin Wu...the woman to his left is the woman with the multiple tattoos.

Notice the absence of The Amazing Fannypack and the presence of Hooky's black tags.

I seriously doubt they've totally done away with any form of fanny pack; but I can see them having a "new" model that's not so obvious to bystanders. (After all they've had almost two hundred teams running the Race in the 16 prior seasons, and that probably is a reasonable size for a manufacturing order that's been used up.

I know it's hard from these caps to see what may now be a fanny pack, but it may be something to look for for the long term.

Georgiapeach thank you for all your work. I am enjoying sleuthing along with you guys.
That video is amazingly clear, and I agree with someone who said that the tall dark haired girl looked of Asian decent. But not even sure she is a racer.
Kevin Wu is very very clearly shown at the counter at the very end of that clip.

H) F/F, Pink, Black-haired/Blonde
I) M/M, Orange, African-American
J) F/M, Dark grey, Black-haired
K) Kenny & Kevin Wu - M/M, Dark Blue, Asian Father/Son

Macaroons has done a wonderful job compiling all of these teams and correlating them all with the reports from CaptJoe and the Airport.

I am going to use this is a guide for posting all the team pics, so click on that link about to see more pics of each team.

And CaptJoe has kindly given permission for us to use his fabulous starting gate photos in order to provide a clearer picture of the whole Boston adventure.

Y'all be sure to read up on his coverage HERE:

http://www.goodmorninggloucester.com

Team colors have proven to be confusing, so I am starting with the colors they wore on the start. By the time teams reached the airport, they were incredibly hot and sweaty apparently, so many of them changed before their flights. Teams were also heard referring to other teams by colors that were not so apparent (Team Turquoise?) but have used that nomenclature when possible.

And a HUGE THANK YOU to all those on site who have kindly shared their stories, their photos, their videos, and the wonderful adventure with us all!! You know who you are, and we couldn't do this without you!!

They could be using the bandana colors instead of the clothes. The couple in black (Team A) are wearing a turquoise bandana as opposed to a black one.

Actually, The male/male blue team is the Wu's.

Apologies, that was my mistake initially, made before we had the video including footage of the 2 teams on the last boat. :-[

They could be using the bandana colors instead of the clothes. The couple in black (Team A) are wearing a turquoise bandana as opposed to a black one.

That seems most likely. In Macaroons images from the video you can see the Team A lady wearing the turquoise bandana around her neck, and in the airport interview the male has it tied around his right wrist

Maybe they are a mother and daughter?

Also, they could be team 11 (tag) if their cameraman's letter corresponds to their team number. K is the 11th letter of the alphabet.

Any thoughts on the pink team? They dont look related, but the brunette looks several years older than the blonde.

No. They do for the starting line, but after that, it is up to them if they want to continue matching or not. To help the producers identify them, teams do have matching bandanas of a specific color that they either wear or hang from their bags.

I don't get a lot of mactor hunch from most of this cast, maybe only form of the younger co-ed teams.  I don't think we'll have a lot of mactors this season, not more then a regular ones.
The only thing that bother me a little is the fact the all 4 female teams seem to be caucasian and in their 20's (I might me mistaken) and most look like friends. The lack of diversity could be a problem.

Except that the cast looks fine to me.

True, we don't know them and maybe my definition of a mactor is different but all of the females I have seen so far are young, attractive with tight clothing. Not that I'm complaining!  :-[ I just don't see that they were chosen for personality and brains as opposed to their looks.

The thing that strikes me is how young the overall group appears.  Other than the "*2 Dads," none of the racers look 35+.  Looking at the pictures of the Green Team, it's hard to believe either of them made the stated 21yo age requirement by the time filming started. 

*Assuming Yellow Team is father/daughter

I thought I read that the age requirement had been lowered permanently, not just for last season's Caite.

Anyway - good job as always, Peach.  Reading this forum makes expectations for the new race exciting  - to see the race as it unfolds before it actually airs.

It's funny, cause the pictures you guys have of him doesn't really look like him to me. It's WAY more hair than I'm used to seeing on him. Although the glasses are right...

It's an interesting coincidence at a minimum.  Just as the coincidence of TAR 16's Brent was a former boyfriend of a TAR 13 Racer. And how some of the others in recent years had direct personal connections to earlier Racers. It's funny how this sort of thing has come up going back to TAR 5 or 6.)

But I'm impressed that the Princeton-affiliated folks were able to pick up on everything and confirm it with their own reporting that quickly.

And how some of the others in recent years had direct personal connections to earlier Racers. It's funny how this sort of thing has come up going back to TAR 5 or 6.)

Indeed, it's been a common occurrence recently. Especially in the pageantry circuit and South Carolina circle. Sources indicate that both of these will be represented again by STEPHANIE SMITH, a MISS SOUTH CAROLINA USA 2009 who interestingly succeeded JAMIE HILL of TAR10, just as JONATHAN SCHWARTZ succeeded Nick Spangler of TAR13 in the Fantasticks.

This is the turquoise couple.

STEPHANIE SMITH, 22. SALES RECRUITER. JACKSONVILLE, FL (Originally from Goose Creek, SC).
CHAD WALTRIP, 25. OPERATIONS MANAGER. JACKSONVILLE, FL.

Relationship: Dating, just moved in together this month.



*Chad played college football (defensive line) for five years (02-06) at Rhode Island University
*Stephanie is a former make-up artist and model.
*The two work for the same company in Jacksonville.

*In a 2007 article by Edward Fennell, Stephanie described herself as "driven, receptive, personable, compassionate, [and] energetic."
*Her hobbies are swimming, kayaking, cosmetology, modeling, and singing.
*Apparently, Stephanie tried out for American Idol in the past. There are a few videos available of her singing.

I have never had anything to add about contestant spoilers, but on Team Blue, the beautiful Eurasian looking female looks extremely familiar to me. I believe that she is a beauty pageant winner or finalist. (not that I watch a lot of those shows) I could be wrong, but I have seen her before (or her twin) and I have it in my head that it is a competition.

And looking at the two females on that team, they could well be beauty pageant alumni. Hope this isn't out of line for this thread. Might be more speculation than fact. (the memory ain't what it used to be)

About half of the female cast in any season of the race are beauty pageant alumni. CBS (or maybe it's an American thing... I don't know  :duno:) as some bizarre unhealthy fixation with those girls.

I think that's a slight exaggeration, but there have been seasons where beauty pageant winners were in abundance. (TAR 5).  It does seem, though, that that group usually make up all or half of better-performing teams. which I think has more to do with it.  TAR has wanted to see an all-female winning team for a long time, and the casting of four all-female teams does seem to be a bet that maybe there's a fortunate pair in this season's cast.

I do find it curious that casting does seem to have a fixation on South Carolina beauty queens, though.

And is that Miss Kentucky of Miss America or the Miss Universe/USA/Donald Trump-owned one?

I have received a tip that Team Yellow may be the current Miss Kentucky, Mallory Ervin and her father.

Could anyone help with this? A current height might be helpful....



Yes, this is correct!

MALLORY ERVIN, 24.
GARY ERVIN, 52.

FATHER/DAUGHTER. MORGANFIELD, KY.


Her blog has some family pictures, which seem to confirm what Macaroons has already confirmed.
Four down, seven to go, then! :jumpy:

Macaroons,

I need your expert opinion here. Might this be our blonde on the blue team on the right? I can't find her name, as my Google search was actually for the current Miss Colorado who she is with.

ETA: Here is the website it's from. http://mrscolorado.blogspot.com/2009/07/2009-miss-colorado-america-pageant.html. She isn't the Mrs. CO that the blog belongs to, but the one who is listed as the author of the blog actually looks like her partner. The name of that person is Shalon Polson.

They should consider replacing Lynne Spillman. She's doing a terrible job with female applicants. It's like younger women who don't have any beauty pageant or modeling experience do not exist in the world... it's becoming ridicules.
In general I think CBS should cast more unattractive women teams... they don't seem to have that problem with their male casting.

That anyone recognized Megan as the same person in the airport photos and pageant pics.  To my eye, she looks completely different.

Four females identified. Four beauty pageant girls. I honestly don't understand this one bit. I guess they feel this is what will bring in the most viewers. No offense, but I thought that they would want differing personalities. I hate to typecast, but four beauty pageant winners doesn't scream diverse personalities.

Are the powers-that-be getting desperate to have a F/F team win? I'm down for having four F/F teams in the race, but let's see some diversity (and non-recruited teams!!!) in this thing. Have some athletic girl teams (Kisha/Jen), or have a compelling F/F storyline (divorcees-Kelly and Christy), or have a mother-daughter or two...

I doubt all of their pageant pasts will be revealed on-air, anyway.  Marsha from TAR5 was a pageant competitor, too, as was Christie, and I believe Alison was, too, and none of them mentioned it.  The only one who did was Nicole.

I think perhaps only Megan & Jennifer's pasts will be revealed since they're a team of beauty queens.

I am saddened to read on this forum that so far out of the 11 teams of TAR 17, 5  teams identified are related to the entertainment field.  I have nothing against beauty queens, web surfing, or theatre, it just seems so shallow of the casting department to be so biased.  40% are semi-celebs.  I hope the percentage doesn't increase as the remaining teams are identified.   :'(

Are we 100% on Mrs. Nebraska?  Mrs. Nebraska is 1/2 Chinese and that seems to fit, but she was at the Mrs. Colorado contest on May 13-15th, which seems to be cutting things very close for the pre-race preps.  And the more I look at her picture, the less she seems to fit.

Here is a close up of Mrs. Colorado during the pageant.  The smile is not as square, she has more "perfect" teeth, and doesn't have the dimples of our racer (who is, IMHO, cuter anyway).

It is being re-examined and hopefully re-verified. There is some new potential evidence against it being her. But those dates do not conflict.

At this point, due to some new evidence that has come up, we can't be absolutely certain that Megan and/or Jennifer are correct. There is still a possibility that either could be, but it is NOT confirmed. It is still being looked into.

Sincere apologies to anyone who has been misidentified on the board. We always try our best to make sure that information is reliable and concrete before it is posted. While the photographic similarities seemed strong in this case, there is always a chance for error until it comes from CBS.

Hopefully instances like this will be minimized/avoided in the future. Thanks for your understanding.

I wouldn't read too much into heights being moderately different since any pageant shots were probably done in pretty serious heels and Racing would probably be done in some verision of flat/sneaker/low heel height boots.

here is the best backpack photo of blonde team pink that we have...her partner's pack is black.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2017/TAR17teamatHeathrowVirginmarked.jpg)

BUT!! do keep in mind that we have no pack picture of Team Turquoise...and while this looks like PINK blonde...I don't want us to rule out Stephanie. It is totally possible that they could be carrying green packs as well...we just don't know. Found one! They have blue/black packs.

And anything that is speculation...you know where to take it, okay?? :tup:

Thanks for posting the pic uycocoa!! :kuss:

The other one in taxi is female,so this should be F/F team I think.People who took the photo told us this is an F/F team.Since we know they have a blonde and carry green pack(lime green team carry black pack), and the blonde look definity not the girl in blue team...I think we can confirm this is pink team.

I magnify the picture and pretty sure there is another woman in taxi.
And the person who took this photo posted this in "TAR17 Speculation"

Hello
I'm the person who took those photos.
I saw that 2 teams went intp Seibu Department store in Tsim Sha Tsui for a while.
Then two teams ran to the intersection of Nathan Rd and Haiphong Rd.
I tried to run and catch them but there were many people on the streets.
One of two teams go on a cab and another team of 2 girls call for another cab.
However, it seemed that the cab driver didn't understand their English. So the cab stop on the road for around 4 minutes and then go away too.

He took this photo about 1545,on the boat to Cheung Chau.
There are three teams on the boat.
purple team
pink team
blue girls team

We can figure out by the crews' clothes match to the photo taken in  Cheung Chau.

That was posted a couple of days after we believe the race finished, so it isn't proof either way of whether he made it far or not. I'm guessing the teams were told to be available until the 20th both to give themselves a couple of days recovery before heading back to work, and so as not to spoil the exact day the finale would be filmed.

This is true, but I am not sure we can see enough in this boat photo to be sure of the crew?


In the boat picture, the male standing behind the pole with headphones is a possible for the cart driver in the middle image (glimpse of red bag in boat pic) and the male he is talking to with shaved head & black shirt is possible for one of the runners in third picture. The male in front of him with headphones does seem to have a light coloured shirt, but seems blonder than the male passenger in the cart (and all the other crew pictured in the other 2 pictures) so it's not yet conclusive either way imho.

You have Asperger's as well?  So do I!  I've thought of applying but I have a big problem -- finding someone who would willingly come on the show with me.  I'd like a guy to come on but my options are pretty limited to relatives and I don't have many male relatives I think would be willing (or in my dad's case, able) to come on with me.  But if an all-female team wins, I might try to do it with one of my female relatives.  Or not -- I'm not sure on that one.

A girldfriend and myself were going to try for TAR #18, if there is one, but I work for the Post Office and if we were chosen and filming was Nov. through Dec. I would probably have to write the Postmaster General to get the time off.  Hopefully the show will continue and maybe we can apply for this time next year.

It is so hard to find someone to apply with.  The prize money and the travel, I go to very few places, I think would be entriguing.(sp)

Forgot to respond to this.  No, they didn't win.  It's looking fairly certain they got booted before the St. Petersburg leg, as the only men's team apparently left by that point (at least that was seen) was Kenny & Kevin.

This is the red team:

ANDIE DeKROON. 43. Catholic mother of a blended family (9 kids). Cumming, GA.
JENNA SYKES. 21(ish, depending when her b-day is). Film Student. Indianapolis, IN/Athens, GA (originally from Niceville, FL).

Credit also goes to Milanissimo and Mrs.Shrek for independently identifying the team.

hmm...*spec* how about step-mom/step-daughter. It says that Andie is a mother of a blended family so they could have the "we want some time to bond with each other" story, although they do resemble each other a lot.

I can't speak for any of the other detectives, but I've been searching the internet for weeks for clues about various teams, hitting multiple dead ends, and only finally figured out the red team about 12 hrs ago. Anyone can join in the searching game...it just takes time and effort, and a little bit of luck.
I messaged the links to my red team possibilities last night to Macaroons, who had come to the same conclusion via different methods, and the team was posted on the site this morning. We want to try and be sure we have the right people before publicly identifying them on the forum, but that's not exactly 'witholding info' imho :duno:

To protect the little privacy the racers will soon have, RFF asks that we not publish the links to the racers' own Facebooks or Twitters. Fan pages when they appear are of course fine, and if the racers choose to share their links later in interviews, that will be fine too.

Thanks!

Whatever their relationship is, Andie and Jenna are not biologically mother and daughter. From a 2007 blog about Jenna's recruitment into the sorority she belongs to:

This year's Recruitment was especially exciting for me because Helen Kolp's* great-granddaughter, Ann Kolp Roche's* granddaughter, Missie Roche Sykes' daughter, and Mimi Roche Cotter's niece, Jennifer Ann (Jenna) Sykes from Niceville, Florida was one of the "Crown Girls."  I had Missie bring Jenna to Athens for Gamma Pi's Diamond Challenge in the spring, and she fit in like a bug in a rug - they loved her right away!!!  Good move, Mamas, if you have Potential New Members.  When the girls on the inside know you, you stand a much better chance - no matter how many references you have!

Half the female teams in any season look like sisters, they usually have the same hair color, body type and they dress alike. Ironically the women in actual related female teams (taking out the Julia's from S12 and the twins) looks nothing like each other  :lol:
I won't be surprised if the pink team will turn up to be sisters.

The only reason though that I think these two are related is because of their ages. I can't for the life of me see a woman in her 40s hanging out with one in her 20s unless they are related.

I don't think this has anything to do with the race... it's just that US lost to Ghana in the world cup.
It has the same date of the match. I'd say, this is irrelevant.

I'll do some digging on that one. It sounds plausable. My mother in her 50s is actually close to a few people at work that are in their 30s. Same age gap as Andi and Jenna.

About time a "Katie" was cast.

Rachel kinda looks like a cross between Ivanka Trump and Kandice of the BQs.

They're from NJ?  Then they might've actually applied.  So far, it sounds like, from home locations alone, that most of this cast actually applied.

A few thoughts about their video: 
First off, it was made more than a year ago.  I lilke the fact that it seems this team, especially Brook, really seems to have been trying for a while to be cast.  I prefer this much more than recruited teams.   Secondly, their video is more than 6 1/2 minutes long, what happened to the 3 minute limit?!

I think reality TV production and casting have an easier time dealing with mactors instead of "ordinary" people and they really gone too far in this season  :knuckles:. I am not happy with that either but that's the way things go.

Keep in mind that Survivor is premiering about 10 days before TAR next month, so their premiere is still over a month away. (CBS usually releases the Survivor cast with more lead time than TAR. Based on past history, TAR's cast likely won't be revealed until the week preceding Labor Day at the earliest.

Because you weren't the only mother/daughter team to apply for the race. There were probably thousands out there. The producers didn't ignore you and your mother or the those other thousands of mother/daughter teams, they just found a duo they found more interesting. Try again next year. They are always looking for teams with such a relationship.

The official CBS website now shows that the cast will be revealed on September 1st.

If that's the case, that's even better!

I'm thinking Thomas and Jill will probably be credited as Tom and Jill. Staying on topic, I think we can say we've identiified the purple team even if it is just by names.

I think they'll be Jill & Tom (or Thomas) because in the picture of them sitting on the boat, Jill was on the side of the person whose name is usually said first by Phil.

I went back to the website and now the date of the cast reveal has been removed. Hmmmm. It was publicized as September 7th, September 1st, and now there is no date listed.

I'm not sure what is going on with CBS this year.  They've done very little with Survivor although the cast has been announced (over a week ago), and I'm not aware of a single mention of a TAR promo on the network.

I find this constant inconsistency annoying,

I wish I heard something definite about the cast announcement, but I haven't.

This is the last bit of cast info that I have: Ron's partner's name is Tony. This is a pic of them:

That should complete another team. Still don't know anything more on the Grays or the Blue/Black women. Looks like there will be a few surprises on the reveal date.

So Tony, huh?  Then that makes nine full teams, and two more to be revealed on (hopefully) Wednesday.

I think I've identified the blue all-female team.  If I'm correct -- I think I'll like them.  The dark-haired woman seems to be Asian American -- and I've always had a soft spot for Asian Americans.

Yeah, I thought it was Nat & Kat!  So that means they're the blue all-female team who makes the Final 3!  I'll love that!  But you need to update Page 1 and put their names in.

You're welcome.  I'm looking forward to seeing Nat & Kat make the Final 3!  I hope they win -- or if not, at least Brook & Claire win.  I saw when Brook won the Miss America Pageant -- I think.  Or was she just Miss Oregon?  I'm not sure.

Okay then, Brook was Miss Oregon.  Still, if Nat & Kat don't win I hope Brook & Claire do.
