Title: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: georgiapeach on June 12, 2011, 11:07:27 PM
We'll be hoping to get to know our new teams right here as soon as the race begins! :hearts:



And despite what has been posted elsewhere, we do NOT believe TAR 19 to be any sort of an AllStars season.

I can confirm Season 19 is NOT All Stars! It'll be a crop of fresh new faces.

New post from this poster on Twitter

posted a few seconds ago -

One team is a married couple...both are "little" people. I think they might be the same ones that had a reality show, but not sure

The Roloffs from TLC's Little People Big World? It may be possible to get a bead on whether or not they could be on there.

UPDATE: They were both on Twitter and FB as recently as yesterday.

UPDATE 2: How about Bill Klein and Jen Arnold, another little couple from TLC. Their FB fan page hasn't been updated since June 8.

That's what I think too.  Matt Roloff's facebook page said his last post was 16 hours ago.  Even very strange, last week in Tualatin, Oregon, Amy Roloff was scheduled to make an appearence at a frozen yogurt shop on the 20th (Monday), but it was postponed/rescheduled. hmmmmm!!!!!!

Phil doesn't tweet during the race right? Phil hasn't tweeted in the last 22 hours, which means it could have started  this morning

I am not so sure that team is a mother/son team. One person is definitely a younger looking male but the other person might not be a mother. It could just be another male but with long hair or that could be a female but I am not so sure that is a mother/son team.

I agree with you. Just look at the sneakers that the person on the left is wearing. Those don't seem like sneakers that a mother would wear.

I've got some teams.   :jam:

I'll start with one that stands out in the public domain  :waves:   World's youngest to sail around the World (http://www.zacsunderland.com/)

Meet Zac Sunderland and his father Laurence Sunderland (http://www.sunyachts.net/main/Welcome.html):

Post by: north09 on June 19, 2011, 03:25:04 AM
When it comes to teams at LAX, we can always count on Chateau!  :jam:

So if Zac was 16 in the summer of '08, he'd be 19 now. Once again exceptions are made for the semi-famous. This time though I don't mind based on his past accomplishment.

Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: Dom on June 19, 2011, 03:54:49 AM
If it isn't, its someone that looks a hell of a lot like her!!

And so judging by the curly hair, I'm guessing the guy is Ethan Zohn, her boyfriend? Both Survivor winners.. I can imagine that'll work well in the ratings
Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: Kiwi Jay on June 19, 2011, 04:01:44 AM
So Ethan/Jenna and Laurence/Zac...

Ethan has recently recovered from cancer. He got quite skinny...the hair and physique compare well, and that is obviously Jenna!

Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: kevin2012 on June 19, 2011, 04:29:19 AM
they can't be related because of the huge difference in their skin color. I'm not sure if the girl's african american or white, but it would be interesting if she was white. It's like a reverse brian and ericka

There's actually two F/F teams. The blondes and these dark-haired girls. I also hope that the girl-without her partner is a F/F team, so we could hopefully have three.

Post by: Glamazon Racer on June 19, 2011, 05:34:07 AM
OK, first up, thanks Chateau, that is some amazing work you have done!

I have composed a list of the teams that Chateau has revealed for us (correct me if you notice any errors):


1. Laurence & Zac Sunderland (Father & Son)
2. Older blue team (M/F)
3. The couple that some of us have speculated to be Ethan & Jenna, a pair of Survivor winners
4. Blonde all-female team (wearing reddish tops)
5. Young couple (M/F in white and blue)
6. African American couple (M/F wearing black)
7. African American female wearing pink (teammate not visible)
8. Young yellow couple (M/F)
9. Green team (M/M, probably surfers)
10. Dark-haired all-female team (with pink jackets, apparently from Hawaii)

I only have 10, am I missing one, or is that all we have?

Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: TSPKM on June 19, 2011, 05:46:44 AM
Yeah I only counted 10 team as well.

Also reguarding the black lady in the pink with the partner that is covered up by the white guy in the rolling backpack, I'm pretty sure its a black man behind him. The tennis shoes and the cargo pants as well as a dark skinned arm kind of give it away.

I too think that it totally looks like Jenna Morasca in that picture, and those look like Ethan's curls too.

I can't say for sure if that is Jenna Morasca or not, but I only see 3 people in those two pictures. Jenna, the camera guy and the sound guy. There are only 3 sets of legs. The top picture does show something black over the top of Jenna's backpack, but I think that's the back end of the camera on the guy's shoulder. Most likely if that is Jenna Morasca, then Ethan Zohn is probably her partner, but I don't see him in those pictures.

Post by: theschnauzers on June 19, 2011, 12:37:39 PM
Like Zac and Laurence, if that one other team is Jenna and Ethan, there's a compelling story there beyond the Survivor connection, namely Ethan's a cancer survivor and as I recall it was a very life-threatening situation for Ethan when it was diagnosed. Also, Ethan has been a tireless promoter for youth soccer (or football, if you prefer). If it's those two, I wouldn't have a problem with their being cast because of the Ethan backstories; he's earned it, IMHO.

Zac's solo voyage around the world was a tremendous personal accomplishment. Little doubt it would be appealing to Lynn, Bert, Elise and especially Phil.

Question could the Jenna-Ethan team be the team that was documented at a ticket counter by tweetpic that came out last night?

This could turn out to be a great cast. I'm already liking Laurence & Zac, and Ethan & Jenna do have that 'beyond survivor' story that theschnauzers has mentioned which will no doubt appeal to more people than Rob & Amber. My speculation is that our missing 11th team is a M/M team as we only have 2 of the usual 3.

Great work, was just going to confirm that the green team is definitely the 'surfer' types.
The NIKE swish on the bright green shoes is the tell.

Great to see Ethan and Jenna racing!! Ethan will still be below his best physical condition, and as a soccer player I worry that he hasn't built back the mass on his legs. I work with leukemic patients and have a few friends who have been through the lengthy process and even my good friend who sped through recovery and runs marathons took years to get back to normal energy and strength. Jenna may be the strength for the team. Usually hate reality tv re-competitors, but am cheering for them HUGELY already. They have given so much after their wins to community and through his battle with cancer.

Hopefully our last team isn't another m/f couple as there are at least 5 of them. But there is always hope that at least one of them might be brother/sister or gay friends.

Great stuff everyone, LOVE these first few days except that I find myself being glued to the computer to read all your information... arrggh. Good thing I have some time off.

I could not agree more! And I am so not a fan of already been used players...but this is something special. He fought so hard, and she fought FOR him so hard, so I am thrilled to have them join the TAR family.

I thought it was kind of cool when they brought in Alison Irwin from Big Brother 4 for The Amazing Race 5 with her bf who had beef with her from her performances on BB. But then the over did it when they had Rob/Amber and Jordan/Jeff on the race. I am definitely okay with Ethan and Jenna coming back though.

On the topic of celebrity casting that we like, I'm not usually a fan of people under 21 getting casted, but Zac actually did something other than make videos or say something stupid. From what I see so far, I like the cast.

Post by: Belle Book on June 19, 2011, 07:48:47 PM
So Ethan & Jenna are on the show!  I'll be rooting for them -- Ethan because of his cancer and because he was one Survivor winner I liked, Jenna because I felt for her when she left Survivor All-Stars because she suspected (accurately) that her mother was dying and she felt she had to go home and see her mom while she still could.  I wish them the best of luck!

I'm not usually a big fan of returnees to shows, but since its Ethan (my first Survivor winner, still my favorite to this day since his win was the reason I continued watching Survivor knowing the good guy CAN win) and Jenna (Wasn't a fan of her in Amazon, but still nice to see her again), I'll be rooting for them lots and lots! Heck, I even liked Rob/Amber on TAR. Plus, Zac seems cool if only for his achievement so I'll be pulling for him and his Dad as well.

Anyway, this season is already exciting me! Cannot WAIT to see it!  :) :) :) :)

I had a feeling we were missing an M/M team. I just thought they would do better than 8th!  :lol:

ETA: Prophet, I have to admit one of the things I've enjoyed about TAR since season 12 began is the addition of team colors. I think it adds a little to the visuals when looking at publicity photos and things. That said, I think you should keep the other young couple as purple.
Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: Prophet on June 20, 2011, 01:14:50 PM
I really wish I could figure out the color for my number five team. I just took out the purple because I had no good evidence to keep it.

I love the team colors too and it really helps with cross referencing in spoilers. I'm sure WRP added them just for us  :lol:

Here are the two pix of them, any ideas? Maybe I should stick with my first hunch.

Well I remember in TAR 17 Thomas wore a plain white shirt at the starting line while Jill wore a purple tank. The exact same case as in the airport photo of our mystery couple here. The thing I have realized is that a lot of times in the first leg teams will pose at the starting line in their team color and change to more racing appropriate clothes for the majority of the leg.
Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: Best Loser on June 20, 2011, 01:36:03 PM
The unknown M/M team is in matching light blue shirts, matching khaki shorts, matching short brown hair. Judging by their shirts and backpacks, I'd say their team color is blue, but that color's already been taken.

I don't think the lady in the orange team is African-American.

As for the mystery color team, they have orange, blue, yellow, white, black, purple... I don't think they even know what team color they are. :lol:
Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: Chateau d If on June 20, 2011, 01:58:15 PM
I'd call them Orange since the shoe laces are orange. For example, Terence & Sara of season 13 went to special effort to get a bunch of purple shoe laces.

Skip that!  I see Orange is clearly taken.

Too many BLUE teams! So confusing! :pull

And were they going for a light load?

Just a passing comment about team colors.  In past seasons, we've had more than one shade of some colors, such as with blue, green, and red (e.g., pink). I'll let the folks with photos and on the scene take that reminder from there.

I noticed :lol:

just wondering
loseaguy said "They thought they were out because they didn't see any other team. (The old couple was far far behind, that's why the two girls were surprised they were number 10)

I didn't take photos of the last team because I saw Phil was on a car and headed out after 10 teams checked in, I thought he went to tell them they were eliminated. So I just left."

but this afternoon, i saw an old couple at Gambir Train Station. decoy, maybe? why they didn't sent to elimination station?
this is the pic

1. He wouldn't wear a Super Bowl ring on the Race where it could be lost  :lol:
2. It could be a class ring or just an extravagant piece.
3. Like ZBC said this could indicate that he is "rich"

I do think he looks like an athlete, perhaps basketball is an option as well? (They just finished their season)

His facial features look similar but the beard messes things up. He has a lot of different looks including bald and with short and long hair. The upper body build is actually similar as well.
Who knows  :duno:

I actually thought to ask if that big guy was a pro athlete, but would never have placed him. That is definitely them! Great work.
I am hesitant to post people's profiles but anyone think that the 2009 Miss Hawaii Aureana Tseu as a possibility for one of the Hawaiian girls?

Last year I incorrectly identified a couple of BQs so take it for what it is worth. I don't know how to track facebook or twitter action.

She is on Twitter and hasn't tweeted since May 19.  She was supposed to be in Hiroshima on June 2.  None of which precludes racing.  Her pages are in Japanese, so if it's her, too bad they didn't go to Japan first.

A couple of comments from me in relation to the eventual identification of Karl and Kay Malone.

For our RFF friends not in the U.S., many African-Americans have very light skin, and from skin color might appear to be white. Same think with "bi-racials" as marriages where one person is white and the other is black are far more common in the U.S. now than it was 50 years ago.

Second, athletes, especially in the sports considered major in the U.S. -- football, baseball, and basketball. Even retired athletes tend to keep their bulk as well as height. And even if not a professional athlete, sometimes athletes who retire from a sport after college. I just want to avoid assuming that someone who looks like an athlete is currently active in that sport professionally,

That said, I'm not going to condemn casting a retired (reasonably well-known) professional athlete. In fact, TAR hasn't had many of those, unlike Survivor, where there seems to be a retired NFL player almost every season now. Retired athletes or their family members, just like retired beauty pageant winners may be fans of the show and applied to be on. Let's see what the back story is before throwing bricks at Lynn Spellman.

If you know much about basketball, Karl Malone is a very controversial person, on court and off.  He definitely comes with more baggage than a backpack!  He could easily be one of the most controversial racers.  Of course, that is sometimes good for ratings.

IDK! I was just curious because the name looked familiar.....

They are an adorable couple and would be very fun to watch, loved the video. But they are not one of our TAR 19 teams, and applications are often reconsidered for more than one season.

To avoid ruining their chances to ever be considered, am removing their info and video.

I'm kind of uneasy with our identification of Karl Malone. The guy in the pictures doesn't look 6' 9" tall. He looks at most 4 or 5 inches taller than his wife. Maybe his wife is well over 6' tall, but that would be pretty unusual for a beauty pageant winner. Also, while the other racers are at varying distances from the wall, comparing them to the darker lines on the wall in the background, the general feeling is that they aren't that much shorter than the Karl Malone in our pictures. However, it could be the camera angles since they are at various locations along that wall. The security guard near the door appears to tower over everyone else since presumably he is closer to the photographer and nearest to the wall.

On the other hand, our identification of Karl Malone has gotten a fair amount of attention and has been in the Salt Lake City newspaper. If Karl is just going through his day to day life back in Louisiana (I read that he works for Louisiana Tech University these days), I imagine someone would have called it to his attention. In that case, I expect we would have heard a denial from him about the rumors of his being on the Amazing Race. The lack of a denial by this point lends some credibility to our identification.

Just on this set of pictures, it would be hard to tell because there really isn't a good clear image of the face of the putative Karl, and its hard to get a perspective of how a 6'9" man would look in those spots, especially with a cap on all the time. I don't see enough there to say that it is not Karl, so I'm giving more weight. for now, to the earlier pictures that led to the identification.

On the other hand, there are better photos of Ethan in this set, and finally being able to see his face, with his longish, dark, curly hair, re-enforces in my mind that the identification of Ethan is correct.

So that's my $.02 worth of comments.

Don't get me wrong.  in the pics, the guy looks SUPER tall.  In fact, looks about 6'9 to me.  but the cap with his face shown pretty clearly doesnt look anything like him.  karl is 47 and in recent interviews (i am a sports freak), he looks every bit of 47.  The guy in the pic looks nowhere near 47.

OK, I'm convinced too. I thought it might end up being an issue with the camera angles and the distances in those earlier pictures and apparently that was the case. In these latest pictures, Karl is clearly about a foot taller than his wife and about 4 to 6 inches taller than Phil.

Is Phil really that tall? Karl Malone is 6'9, so that would mean that Phil would be anywhere from 6'3 to 6'5 by your estimates. I always thought he was more like 6'0 to 6'1.

Given my track record last night, I'd say Phil is 4 to 6 inches shorter with a margin of error of 3 feet.  :lol3:  Take a look at the pictures and estimate it for yourself.  I have no idea just how tall Phil is. It isn't something I ever thought about before last night.

One thing I wasn't doing with the batch of Teipei airport photos that came online yesterday was to say that those images weren't Karl Malone; I was saying I wouldn't make a decision based only on that particular set for that particular identification. I do agree that the more recent set Peach posted is much more conclusive on the identification.

Some thoughts about whether it's Karl Malone - don't know if anyone has seen this YouTube video from last summer - The Gerrard's with Karl and Kay Malone.  Gives some clearer side views of Karl than in the pix above, plus shows their relative heights.  I'm still new to RFF, and I'm a little unclear whether there's any problem providing a link to this video (which is why I put in the title), so please let me know if I've made a mistake. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eDyTkBXQDY

Based on her eyebrows and ear shape, not to mention general features, it sure looks like Kay Malone in the most recent pictures above arriving at the mat.  I'd say the picture from LAX of him looking at the camera sure looks like Karl.  The one above, as they come into the mat, not so much, though if you look at him on the video - maybe.  He does seem to look different in general if you catch him from the front vs. the side, and maybe the picture above just got him at a bad moment or a bad angle.  The mustache/beard is his style, the relative heights of him and her seem right.

Have to agree that in the photo with Phil, he doesn't look quite as tall as you might expect.  However, he's got on a good size backpack, so maybe is slouching; at 47, could have lost a bit of height; might never have actually been 6'9" to begin with; Phil could be wearing cowboy boots.

If it's not actually the Malones, it's a couple that sure looks just like them!

I agree with this. It just doesn't look like Karl Malone.
I can't comment on whether it is Karl Malone, but I can comment on the height of Kay Kinsey Malone. She appears to be about one foot shorter than Karl, which would make her about 5'9" maximum. There is no way she could be 6' or taller based on a picture I have seen of her in standing in front of him.
I'm kind of uneasy with our identification of Karl Malone. The guy in the pictures doesn't look 6' 9" tall. He looks at most 4 or 5 inches taller than his wife.

Kay Kinsley Malone is about 1 foot shorter than Karl Malone, so her maximum height would be 5'9" and she cannot be over 6' tall.

To settle the height of Phil Keoghan definitely,
Height: 5' 10¾" (1.80 m)
Title: Re: TAR 19 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: lovetherace on June 30, 2011, 06:24:17 PM
My impression re: their relative heights is a little different.  Her head seems to be level with his shoulder in both pictures , which would make a 12" height difference (and her 5'9" height) reasonable (and also looks about right in the video).  From the picture of them running to the mat, it's pretty clear he's a very big guy, and in that picture it definitely looks like he's much more than 4 or 5 inches taller than her.

What I also found interesting was the ring she was wearing on her left hand in the video. She's got a couple on, but one of them is pretty chunky, and it made me think about the ring he's wearing in the LAX picture that people were wondering about.

More of a question to me is Phil's height in the picture at the mat.  He looks a little taller than I'd expect relative to both of them, if it is the Malones.

Good point about the lack of denial about this identification!

Just a little empirical comparative analysis........The gentleman is about 3" taller than Phil. Phil is ~5'11" tall, according to apskip post above. So that makes this gentleman ~ 6"3" tall. The lady is ~4" shorter than Phil. That makes her ~ 5'7" tall.

If someone with lots better photoshop skils than I wants a little project............go to TAR 18, Episode 7 and grab a screencap of FT/BE and Phil at the mat in Varanasi. Crop out the Taiwanese General. Then glue that photo to the one above using the crown of Phil's skull as a median point. Then you will see the height difference between Phil at 5'11" and BE at 6'9" and FT at 6'3". Looks like a job for Chateau to me.........:)

I suggest the Varanasi pitstop for a couple of reason........the ground is very uniform and level. The background is pretty light and will provide very good definiton between background the the tops of people's heads. Not a perfect solution.....but good enough to rule out Karl and Kay Malone.................but then again......Phil COULD be standing on a box in the photo above for the naysayers.......

People do round up their physical measurement statistics and athletes in particular do (such as height in the NBA and NFL) to intimidate opponents. Also, since I have lost about 1.5 inches in height over the past decade, it could have happened to Karl Malone too. He could only be 6'6" now.

I don't know if you've figured out yet if the girl in yellow is Chinese/Thai/Filipino or what, but she looks Chinese to me. I read somewhere that she could speak fluent Chinese? I don't know if this is true or not, but if it is then it sort of points towards her being Chinese or Thai (there's a lot of people in Thailand who are of Chinese descent.)

Just my two cents :)

I found a blog about the Utah Jazz basketball team that has a lengthy post about our discussion on whether Karl and Kay Malone are on TAR 19. I wasn't sure where to put it, but this seems like the best place.

http://jazzfanatical.wordpress.com/ (http://jazzfanatical.wordpress.com/)

Since he quotes us extensively, I think it's OK to repost parts of it here. It's far too long to cut and paste. First, a nice description of us:

Investigative Report: Are Karl and Kay Malone on the next season of “The Amazing Race”?
July 4, 2011

Preface: Let me just say, the Amazing Race community over at Reality Fan Forum is ridiculous. They have fans all over the world watching for and following the teams as they travel, while others rule in and rule out destinations based on flights schedules, while others still monitor Facebook and Twitter for sightings, while an array of translators fluent in various languages translate those Facebook statuses and tweets. Amazing.


Then a long section follows with parts of our deliberations, his brief comments to tie it together and most but not all of the pictures followed by this conclusion:

It’s funny…they could’ve just asked someone/an NBA fan who knows what Karl looks like for a definitive answer.

As of present time, RFF is still identifying this team as “Karl and Kay Malone.”

So yeah, I could’ve just posted the clear pic and said, “It’s not true,” but I figured some people might need the extra reading given the lockout and all.

Well…the false hope was fun while it lasted.


It appears that he's decided that it isn't Karl Malone based on one picture of Karl and Kay running in Taiwan where Karl is wearing a orange bandanna. I agree that's the one that looks least like Karl, but most of the others do and the pictures of Kay are all strikingly similar to her, but he doesn't factor that in.

As an aside, if he's going to quote me about the pictures at the Taiwan airport, it would have been nice if he included those too. I look dumb out of context.  :(

I guess we'll find out in September who's right.

You don't believe this guy over our detectives do you?

He's undoubtedly more familiar with Karl Malone than we are. I still have a few issues with it being Karl, but it looks clearly like Kay to me. How many roughly 6' 9" guys that look like Karl Malone could she know?

Well, Karl and Kay's children are all under 20. Karl is the youngest of 9 children, so any of his brothers would be older than him. However, Karl apparently was the father of 3 children when he was young. One is Demetrius Bell of the Buffalo Bills in the NFL. He is 27 and is listed as 6' 5" tall and 305 pounds. He's a lineman and in pictures has a broad heavy lineman's build, very different than Karl, so I don't think it's him. Reportedly Demetrius and Karl are not close at all. The other two are twins, Cheryl and Daryl Ford, now aged 30. Cheryl plays in the WNBA for the Detroit Shock and is listed as 6' 3" and 195 pounds. I cannot find any information about Daryl Bell, but from the others, I'd guess he's well over 6 feet as well. I did see a story that Karl and Kay are close with the Ford twins and that they are considered part of the family.

I still think we're most likely seeing Karl, but those are the other possibilities I can think of.

Since we know this guy is reading us over here at RFF- Hello, blogger, I am a basketball fan, playing and watching the game for almost 18 years now, and I believe that it is indeed Karl Malone.

While I'm not the biggest Jazz fan in the world, I have seen enough to convince me that it is him, mainly because of the fact that his teammate is Kay Malone, and because of the thing Chateau did with the lines.

I made that comment earlier about Karl denying that he was on the Amazing Race if he was not involved and it was quoted in the blog. Apparently it doesn't carry much weight with him. The lack of a denial remains strong proof for me. Since the Salt Lake City newspaper carried a story with our identification of Karl Malone, I'd have to believe they would have tried to contact him to find out. They must have his phone number or email address.

His wife all but confirms him as a contestant. She posted a few status updates on Facebook about having a fun summer but missing her hubby, followed by a countdown until he comes home. As of Friday, he returns in 12 days. She also posted at the beginning of June that he would be gone for a month. When someone asked where he was, she simply replied "I wish I knew!".

I'm not sure if the field should be limited that way. He could just wear that to support his friend/relative, Andy.

Oh dear...

I have received some what I believe to be excellent and reliable info.

Based on an overheard comment:

It appears that our alleged Malone team may not be after all....

Quote
the lady mentioned that her husband was a doctor and that is how they felt God provided for them to have time off to do the race.
 
 
I have verified that this comment refers to the African American couple with the very tall male, seen with orange on.
 
So for now, until we have more info, am going to have to suggest that this team may not be the Malones after all.
 
I can only offer up our apologies for any confusion, and hope that the real Malones have a sense of humor and have enjoyed their brief moment of TAR fame!!   :-[

It seems to me that TAR has outdone themselves in keeping identities under wraps for 19.  They have been racing for awhile and we still don't know all the teams.  That secrecy clause has really worked this time.  Good job TAR!!!  I am impressed!  I love a spoiler as much as the next person, but sometimes the unknown is so much more exciting.  Loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who is Zac Eddy? I can't a find a reference to him anywhere.

I've been looking at a lot of snowboarders and surfers that might have a connection to Andy Finch and I've found 3 or 4 possible matches. Unfortunately, they have either tweeted or posted to Facebook in the last few days or they have not been US citizens. Very frustrating.

I enjoy having suprises in this race as much as the next guy, but this is still a spoiler section. If you feel that we are in any way disrespecting the contestants by finding them before hand, I assure you we do our best to make sure their privacy is respected  ;)

Moving on, I can't find a record of a Zac Eddy either. There is a person who shares that last name on the Porter's team but he looks like a glam rocker.

Speaking of....I was bored and did some sleuthing and found an Asian woman named Cindy Chiang who looks VERY similar to the Asian woman on the yellow team. AND she has a  picture with a young white male who also looks VERY similar to the man on the yellow team! And upon further investigation, Cindy is married to an Ernie Halvorsen who I believe could very well be her partner. I even found their wedding website. I feel like the biggest stalker right now!  :lol: Not sure how to post pictures and I don't know if Cindy or Ernie would appreciate their pictures on here if it is or isn't them, so maybe someone else with a little more internet and facial recognition expertise can confirm this or not? Someone feel free to delete this post if I'm wrong about the identification!  :neener:

How do we confirm an identification without their help?  :duno:

If it is Kanoe Gibson, I think the partner looks quite a bit like Kanoe's predecessor, Miss Hawaii 2003, Alicia Jones (married name - formerly Alicia Michioka). Alicia Jones is a friend on Kanoe's Facebook page, but I can't find any other connections between them. Alicia is currently Mrs. Hawaii 2010 for about another 10 days or so. Kanoe has over 1500 Facebook friends and I've only looked at the first page, so there are plenty of other possibilities out there.

Another possibility, though I think it unlikely, is Kanoe's sister Malia who has a music career and has released at least one CD. She has a few videos on Youtube. However, most pictures of Malia don't look like the partner. A few do, so it's slightly possible due to the fuzzy quality of the pictures we have of them.

I'm at work, so I can't upload pictures of Alicia Jones or Malia Gibson. I'll leave that as an exercise for the more adept people out there.

It does appear that Mrs. Hawaii 2011 was crowned a few months ago, so Alicia Jones is not the current Mrs. Hawaii. The Mrs. Hawaii's Facebook page confused the heck out of me just now, so I'm not sure what to make of that site.

The Hawaiian Marketplace?

That's an interesting observation. I've tried to find out more about the Hawaiian Marketplace and didn't find much out there. Most of the reviews were pretty bad and it sounds like a struggling operation (restaurants opening and closing, stalls selling trinkets made in China, etc.). I suppose they could have been filming someone there, but I'd expect they would go somewhere more scenic than that, like a park, even if they were filming someone connected to the place. If they were filming someone inside the Marketplace, I don't think they would need a permit.

I've seen references lately to the WRP Group doing a show with Ron Howard. Perhaps the filming permit was involved with that production.

Dumb question (this might be somewhat speculation), but why do some teams have footage of them in the race instead of in their hometown?

They all have one. This is the shot that pops up in the opening credits where the team is pictured together in some way. Footage of them racing flashes right before that, and is updated as the race progresses.

Oh, god, please let's hope Rachel doesn't get the idea that she and Brandon could compete well on TAR. She'd be worse than Flo. Brendon seems level headed enough in some ways, but he's no TAR 3 Zach.

Can you stop calling them the "old" couple. They're younger than me.
So maybe the "experienced" couple or "older looking" couple or "mature" couple?

And whats this obsession with assuming they are not engaged with social media just because they aren't teenagers?
I'm "old" and have been doing social media since before the term social media was invented and before most of you were born - as have most of my elderly peers.

sorry if i offended you but i refer to them as the old couple bc they are significantly older than the other 11 teams. 

and why did i assume they dont use social media? That is bc the source that gave me their names said they didnt think kathy and bill had a facebook.

Very good work, Chateau! It sure looks like a match to me.

One minor quibble though. That pdf link that has Cathi Alden as the principal of Crescent Valley High School is from 2004-2005. This link shows a different principal currently at Crescent Valley High School, so Cathi is the former principal.

Steven has a nice team summary here!


From Survivor champs to twin sisters to snowboarders, get a sneak peak at the 11 teams who'll be racing around the world for CBS's 19th Amazing Race.


Although CBS won’t officially release the names of The Amazing Race 19 contestants until early September, Internet sleuths at Reality Fan Forum have unearthed the identities of all eleven teams. This time, Survivor champions, twin sisters, snowboarders, and flight attendants are among the adventurous pairs who traveled the world from June to July 2011 in pursuit of the million dollar grand prize. Get an early look at the new teams below.

"Get to know NFL player Marcus Pollard from 'The Amazing Race 19'"
 by Stacy Carey, Scottsdale TV Examiner
 August 8, 2011

Fans are geared up for Season 19 of The Amazing Race on CBS, and it looks like it’s going to be a great cast. One of the racers for TAR 19 is Marcus Pollard, who is racing with his wife Amani. Kudos to the observant Reality Fan Forum poster Chateau d'If who was the first to uncover the Pollard couple's participation. Pollard is a former NFL football player, and Scottsdale fans of the show are anxious to learn a bit more about this NFL and TAR star.

    Marcus played basketball at Bradley University, as the school did not have a football program at the time he attended.
    Pollard was signed by the Indianapolis Colts in 1995 as an undrafted free agent.
    His best season was in 2001 where he had 47 receptions and 8 touchdowns, including one for 86 yards.
    Marcus played for the Colts from 1995-2004.
    He moved on to play for the Detroit Lions from 2005-2006.
    He also played for the Seattle Seahawks (2007), New England Patriots (2008 Offseason/practice squad) and Atlanta Falcons (2008-2009).
    His career stats indicate he has a total of 349 receptions for a total of 4,280 yards and 40 touchdowns.
    After retiring, Pollard became a high school football offensive coordinator at Lanett High School in Alabama.
    Marcus and his wife Amani have three children together: Myles, Micah and Aja.
    The Pollard family is now in Atlanta, Georgia. Marcus is 39-years-old and Amani is 36.

The Suite101 article said early September, but I see that as an estimate over a solid date. Probably a week or so after the Survivor cast which will be released on Monday.

Survivor begins its new season on September 14th, which is 11 days ahead of TAR 19's premiere, so that would suggest no earlier than about August 30th, or just after the Labor Day weekend.

Great job markushsieh!

I have no idea where these came from, it does NOT appear that CBS has done the official reveal yet, so we are going to hold off commenting for now....

If anyone has the site link for this info, please PM me. Thanks!

I'm wondering if maybe Cindy (of Cindy & Ernie) is Taiwanese. Her last name, Chiang, seems to be spelled in a more Taiwanese way; in Pinyin (the system used in China), it would be spelled "Jiang." If so, she'd definitely have a big advantage in Taiwan.

I am amazed that World Race Productions cast two alpha males on one team. Andy and Tommy appear to have a fitness and I will guess speed edge over the other teams. Why would WRP have done this? Except for AR16 (Dan and Jordan, Jet and Cord), WRP has been careful since Amazing Race 9 and 10 to make sure that there were no strong alpha male teams. They have abandoned that formula for AR19. I wonder why?

As an aside, I feel it is a no-brainer at this point in knowledge about AR19 to project Andy/Tommy as both a finalist and potential winner.

apskip, I think casting avoided "alpha" males unless they had some sort of flaw that would be tested by the Race; but I agree that as a generality, they have avoided alpha-male teams to increase the odds of an "alpha-female" team to win -- and resulted in two such teams winning in a row.

I didn't like that sort of casting to game the results, but I am hoping the casting reflects a return to a more normal state of affairs, where they generally cast the most capable teams, with little regard for such factors as "alpha male" or "alpha-female."

That's a good point to make, TS. :tup: It does seem like sometimes they try to cast for a certain type of team to win, but that's just my opinion.

yeah but Kisha and Jen won over the Cowboys and the Trotters, and another very capable M/M team in Zev and Justin

I wouldn't consider any of those three M/M teams as unflawed, which was one of the points I made about the relative absence of "alpha male" teams in recent seasons.

I like that TAR19 is fairly balanced. 

The strongest male team in TAR17 were the glee club guys; all of the other male teams had age and fitness issues, and the co-ed teams tended to be dysfunctional.

TAR17 was an exception, it was balanced in favor of female teams.
