Check out the tattoos on the guy in the middle's calves.. Strange design!

Also, what are Brenchel's actual individual names? It's all I keep hearing!

Do both team members of each team have the SAME bag?? If that's right, that would help us out.

Post by: Prophet on November 27, 2011, 08:29:13 AM
No Dave, I have seen teams with different packs. It is all about the bandannas.

Brenchel is Brendon and Rachel from BB12 and 13.

The tattoos appear to be identical. It is a star with a number or letter in the center with some sort of solid object beneath the star.

In this unmarked version you can see another tattoo around his left ankle:

Regarding the shorter of potential M/M racers wearing red;  for the last couple of days I've wondered about a particular person being on the race.  Given what I see of the body build, nose, chin and choice of apparel of this possible racer, my speculation might be true.  I pray to God that this doesn't turn out to be true.

Hi I'm new here.  :)

I am a huge Jeff & Jordan fan but have watched every episode of every season of TAR, it's my favorite reality show. Love Big Brother too though. I know a little more about how Brendon & Rachel "look" because of watching live feeds, maybe more than some of you? I cropped out who I think is definitely Brenchel from the photo posted above. Hope it helps.

I believe Murtz Jaffer is the culprit again: http://insidepulse.com/2011/11/15/big-brothers-rachel-reilly-brendon-villegas-on-the-amazing-race/

And I have seen some articles today that are reporting that they are on TAR20. I think most of those are based on RFF info.

Thank you so much :)

I know I have no "clout" here but I really do think it's Brenchel. Brendon's stance, Rachel's body type, her red hair, his UCLA hat, if I had more time I'd probably be able to find those pants of his in a screenshot from the BB live feeds lol. We'll find out soon enough...

Heee... :bigwelcome to RFF nyluvs!

Here is the deal:

RFF is aware (100%) that B/R were recruited for the show (100%), that they wanted to do it (100%), and that they ARE reputed to be on the show (100%).

Is this the identification photo I would have liked? well, not exactly.....esp after last season.  :-[
Better photos are hopefully on the way!

But nyluvs doesn't know that all of the mods cheerfully moonlight/are dragged kickin and screamin over to BB Updaters in the off season...so we all have our B/R hours.

Michael has impeccable Face/Body recognition, TL put in more hours than anyone.

So, that being said:

RFF announces our first TAR team to be Rachel Reilly and Brandon Villegas "Engaged Couple"


Now nyluvs...ahem.

What this means for YOU is if you are right....you win a 6 week holiday doing BB Updating AT RFF with the BEST Updating team on the web.  :conf:
And if you are wrong? We sentence you to a 6 week course of BB Updating. :snicker:

Deal? Deal!  :hearts:

New to the forum.

Just thought I'd point out that a casting associate for Amazing Race tweeted that she was looking for Grandpa/Granddaughter teams for a hit show. ;) So I'm assuming the old man and blonde girl could be that description.

I'm almost certain there will be one on TAR20 due to them seeking out that particular relationship.

You are absolutely right! A Grandfather/Granddaughter team was ONE of the relationships casting was particularly eager to have this time, I believe we may well see a (recruited?) team!

Second straight season with a crossover, third involving BB, fourth in five seasons, and overall five reality cross-over.  Can't wait.  While I might laugh at an early exit (at the people that put them here, not Brenchel), I think I'd root them on more. I'd love to see someone crowned as the first person to win two major reality shows!

After this, Brendon had better sign up to do Around the World for Free, so he can be even with Jeff. :)

At least Rachel did mention she had wanted to do TAR, and wasn't there circumstance evidence that Rachel had applied for TAR with her friend who was on the current season (before she got called back to BB)?

At least the teams from other CBS shows in these recent seasons have actually expressed an interest in being on TAR before being cast.

Yay! Very excited for Rachel and Brendon (Rachel, more than Brendon).

I think they'd actually do really well.  They're competitive and athletic. Plus they can bring drama and hilarity.  That's a perfect combo right there!

Nice at the grandparent/grandchild team. I hope they have a parent/child team too.

I could have sworn a while back that someone had posted an article about Rachel Uchitel and her current husband, Matt Hahn auditioning for the Race. Can't seem to find it! Obviously there's NO confirmation that they're currently racing, but Peach DID mention media personalities being recruited for the show and I don't see the casting people passing her up! But anyway, maybe a couple to look out for? Wish we had more pictures of the teams!

And sorry, I can't remember who originally posted the article about them, but if they're on, credit goes to him/her.

It's highly unlikely that they had to apply. AS CBS celebrities, they were most likely recruited by the Amazing Race casting for AR20.

Not sure if this will help you guys any, but in that Twitter picture, the guy with his back to the camera with the star tattoos on his calves looks like he is wearing a Revive Michigan hat - that's a company based out of Birmingham, MI.

The owner - his name is Aaron Cohen, 25. And he has a lot of tattoos...

Here's the cap to crosscheck.

I think his partner may be the person to the left of him. You can barely see the top of his head just to the left of the guy with the backwards baseball cap. Definitely looks like a male.

I think the blonde girl might be paired with the tall guy in the baseball cap facing forward that's facing her.

Brenchel being on the race was spoiled earlier this month on twitter with a bunch of teasers from @MissCleoBB14 and confirmed once the race finally began. Here are a bunch of the tweets:

Do we have any idea when the teams would have been sequestered?
Title: Re: TAR 20 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: apskip on December 01, 2011, 03:22:11 PM
I don't know of any proof that we have. However, a good guess would be near Phuket, Thailand where there are beaches and sunshine and opportunities for seclusion in abundance. Since AR19 teams traveled to the Phuket area for leg 4, that gives extra credence to my speculation.

I'm new to the site and i already know its confirmed brenchel is on but i think we can double confirm after this picture..

the picture of brenchel in LAX

(http://i39.[banned image hosting site].com/dr902.jpg)

and look at this picture.. (Brendon in his apology video to rachel after he cheated on her)

(http://i39.[banned image hosting site].com/ji1jkz.jpg)

Notice brendon is wearing the same green shirt ? I think that should 110 % confirm that is Brenchel in the LAX picture above :)
sorta random, but thought everyone should know. haha

I'm convinced that the pictures show Brendon at LAX, but that's such a common shirt that the shirt alone isn't very convincing to me.

I know of an all female team who is racing in TAR 20.  I don't think they are visible in any of the photos in this thread.

I am not free to tell you who they are or much about them except to say they are both from the Los Angeles area and they will be competitive.  In case someone says I'm tossing out generic info, wait until the team bios are released.

Hard to make out, but I think possibly an M/M team. :duno: It could be M/F, but I don't think it is an F/F team. I could be completely wrong, though! :lol:

One of the two is definitely a man (the one further back as we see them). From the other member we can only see the top of the head, but it looks about the same height so I would risk and say also a man, so a M/M team.

Sorry, that was kind of confusing. Aren't they normally sequestered before the race? Just in case we are looking at Twitter or Facebook accounts and they stop at a particular time before the race started.

Yeah, I think the question was about teams being sequestered BEFORE the race and Apskip was talking about teams being sequestered DURING the race. Two different things really. I don't know that we have information about where and for how long teams are sequestered before the race. I think I've heard anywhere from 3-7 days.

Given the first legs in South America and now them apparently going to Germany, I'd expect teams to be sequestered in Europe this time. They have used Portugal before and that's as good a guess as I can come up with at this point.

That is no longer a valid marker. Teams are being encouraged to continue a social media presence...family members or someone covering for them. There are also automatic programs that do a post a day.

The team that people are thinking is Brenchel in that picture at the pit stop...IMO it's not them. Totally different body types & wrong height difference.
Title: Re: TAR 20 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: TAR Fanatic on December 03, 2011, 01:05:13 AM
I'm a Big Brother Fan and I think that team is Brendon and Rachel. Overalls make anyone look heavier. Height difference looks OK to me because he seems to be slightly bent down and looking to the left. She has a shirt wrapped around her waist that makes her butt look bigger. But look at the way the light shines off of her shirt (sequins?) and they have their arms wrapped around each other. Both of these things indicate Brendon and Rachel. :hoot:
Title: Re: TAR 20 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers

Height difference alone doesn't match up. This is the pic of them cropped:

For comparison, this is their height difference with Rachel in heels and when she's barefoot, don't ask lol:

The height factor is so dependent on the pose. The hair lengths and body types look good to me. Not to mention the glitter on the top. I could be wrong but hope I'm right.

Speculating based on the photos and info from Italy. The M/M pictured and speculated to have come in last is not in any of the Miami pics. Another M/M team is being congratulated by Phil for coming in 1st for the past 2 legs. We thought that the guys in red shirts from the Miami pics were a team. So it's possible that those red shirted guys have come in first for the Turin leg and the one before or else it's possible that there's another M/M team.

The eyewitness could be wrong, and the crew has been known to leave and come back especially if there is a gap of several hours between groups of teams. I wouldn't assume any team is last. The camouflage jackets/backpacks doesn't necessarily mean military or former military as that sort of thing can be bought at outdoor/hunting type shops by people who aren't military at all. But I agree that team wasn't clearly photographed if at all at the airport in L.A. or Miami.

Here's a slightly better resolution image of the girls. It appears the blonde girl has very short hair.

(http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb40/domel9/ffteam.png)

Could the hair possibly just be tied back? :cmas5 But I agree that from the image it looks more like it is short hair, as opposed to long hair being tied back (although it is hard to tell :cmaslol ).

This is kind of an odd tweet and may be meaningless, but I thought I'd post in case someone else gets it. I don't think it's a reference to Brenchel. I'm wondering if it's a Big Brother reference I don't know because I don't follow that show.

It could be a reference to them because Rachel is kinda the 'man' in the relationship... so
Brenden --> female form --> Brenda,
and a lot of people think Rachel is a *itch, so thus, witch...
but those are only expressed by a few certain people. I was glad Rachel won BB.

I think the team seen in Osaka is also visible at LAX.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2020/LAX/01590e96.jpg)

The guy wearing the khaki top in the second picture seems to be the one also checking in in Osaka. It seems to be the same hat that he's wearing. And if you look slightly to the left of the girl next to him's head, you can see a flash of blonde hair. I believe this is his partner. She also seems to be wearing the same top as at the Pit Stop.

Also, it looks like the bag in front of the guy at the airport is the same one the team members are wearing at the Pit Stop.

Is it safe to say that the blond in pic/reply #173 is the same blond in reply #221?  The one in #173 looks like she has short, short hair but it could have just been pulled back in a tight ponytail...  We were guessing she was partners with the other woman but now we see she is may be part of a M/F team!?!  :reindeer

Taking another look... nevermind!  The blond with the other woman has a blue backpack (unless she has her other jacket sticking out of it... (she has on grey jacket with other woman - blue jacket at PS in Japan.)

LucyBell,

How do you get teams to Honolulu in time? There is a way, but I doubt that World Race Productions used it. The famous Shinkansen bullet train from Osaka connecting in either Shinagawa or Tokyo and on to Narita could get teams there in time. The 3 flights that arrive Honolulu in time depart Narita in the evening. The total train time Osaka to Narita at minimum is 3.5 to 4 hours, so there would be ample time to get there IF F3 teams were released from a pit stop in Osaka no later than early afternoon December 19. Waiting at Kansai Airport Osaka for flights from there does not fit the available information.

apskip, don't shoot the messenger!  I am just telling you what I saw in the pictures that are posted in sightings!  If teams were running decoy in Japan to throw people off the final 3 heading to Honolulu, why would they go so far as to set up a pitstop with Phil and the whole 9 yards?  Obviously they would have had to get Phil to Honolulu to do his stand up's etc. so why couldn't they get the F3 teams there as well?

Heee... :bigwelcome to RFF nyluvs!

Here is the deal:

RFF is aware (100%) that B/R were recruited for the show (100%), that they wanted to do it (100%), and that they ARE reputed to be on the show (100%).

Is this the identification photo I would have liked? well, not exactly.....esp after last season.  :-[
Better photos are hopefully on the way!

But nyluvs doesn't know that all of the mods cheerfully moonlight/are dragged kickin and screamin over to BB Updaters in the off season...so we all have our B/R hours.

Michael has impeccable Face/Body recognition, TL put in more hours than anyone.

So, that being said:

RFF announces our first TAR team to be Rachel Reilly and Brandon Villegas "Engaged Couple"


Now nyluvs...ahem.

What this means for YOU is if you are right....you win a 6 week holiday doing BB Updating AT RFF with the BEST Updating team on the web.  :conf:
And if you are wrong? We sentence you to a 6 week course of BB Updating. :snicker:
Deal? Deal!  :hearts:


teehee - peach is soooooo bad.

I actually think that Brenchel might be enjoyable on TAR.  It plays to their strengths, which are tasks and competitions, rather than a social experiment.

In TAR9, teams drove to the amusement park, and Lake Yamagana.

In TARA2, they used the bullet train to get from Tokyo to Fukuoka (RIGHT before the Pit Stop...).

It is unbelievable how mysterious life is!  I am freaking out here.  I was contacted a couple days ago by a fellow family researcher of my family line.  She had some questions and I set about finding answers for her and just this morning, I found a story about the life of a daughter of my 3rd great grandmother.  In this story, it said that the family lived near a coal mine and that my grandmother became very, very sick from the dust and even though my grandfather moved them away, she was already so weak and sickly.  Not long after the move, my grandmother died.  So I am flaberghasted to say the least to hear about Bopper's daughter and coal dust just hours after discovering how my great grandmother died!  :o  :cmas13

So they have never used the Bullet Train in USA TAR?

That makes me want to see it used in TAR20.   :cmas16

I think TAR12 used the High Speed Rail while in Taiwan, but definitely not in Japan. I'm not sure if it is the same thing (I know very little about the railway systems of Japan :cmaslol ) and I don't know which one is faster, but I also want to see the Bullet Train in TAR20! :cmas16

The Shinkansen line from Osaka to Tokyo accommodates up to 270 km/hr speed. The High Speed Rail line from Taipei to Kaohsiung is much newer and has speeds up to 315 km/hr. It's close, but Taiwan gets the nod.

(https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/369728_1801412171_636216747_n.jpg)

andrew weber from california
(https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/274098_896085626_6266383_n.jpg)

elliot james weber (possibly andrew's brother)
(https://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/369327_1509053671_27666560_n.jpg)

i think we have a team of twin brothers andrew and elliott weber. 

http://www.sjearthquakes.com/players/andrew-weber (http://www.sjearthquakes.com/players/andrew-weber)

if you go to that website and click on "about", it mentions that he has a twin brother elliott who has a successful band in arizona. 

thanks to "amazinglatinoamericafan" for finding out that andrew plays soccer.

i am speculating that andrew was recommended by ethan and jenna. 
http://m.dcunited.com/player/andrew-weber (http://m.dcunited.com/player/andrew-weber)

"Parents are Donald and Barbara Weber … Has a twin brother, Elliot, as well as another brother, Matt, and sister Kim … Majored in marketing at New Mexico … Enjoys going to concerts … Has a dog named Harley … Likes to listen to alternative rock and hip hop … Has donated soccer gear to Grassroots Soccer … Coaches soccer camps."

LOL, looks like the locals confirmed that Mark and Bopper are on this season, as early as 2 1/2 weeks ago!!

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/manchester-ky/TBA96T5T3THA041EB

Apparently he's some sort of assistant to Richie Farmer, the Commissioner of Agriculture for Kentucky - the same Richie Farmer who's had his basketball # retired by UK. He's 41.

I think Elliot was the lead singer of a band called Afallacy. In the few photos they have on MySpace, the lead singer looks to be a match. He currently appears to be the vocalist of a band in AZ called Ronin Meyer.

So awesome if Andrew Weber is on the show! I'm a big soccer fan and my family has had season tickets for the San Jose Earthquakes over the years and we're familiar with Andrew! Haven't personally met him but we always see him during the games (usually on the bench as he is kind of the 3rd string goalkeeper). He and his brother will definitely be at least one of the teams I will be rooting for this coming season!

 it looks pretty likely that they're on the Race! Great job eddieshi1!

Nice work Eddie!! Something interesting to note which might help solidify Dave as a racer; A few months ago I found something which suggested there might have been a Madison couple who was cast for the race. It was definitely after TAR19 ran, so my guess is Dave is part of the said team.

The source said it was a "Couple" which sounds to me like he was paired with his spouse/girlfriend.. but it just could have just meant a duo from Madison was cast  :cmas5

We're not allowed to discuss how he found out on here. Just know that we can be 100% sure he and his wife are on the race.

i have some new info on the missing M/M team. They are co-workers from California and are involved with law enforcement, perhaps border control or something of that nature.  It is some guy and his boss. That's all the info i can dig up for now.

I think the pair you have listed as Dave & Rachel may in fact be Brenchel, with Dave & Rachel being the pair on the far left??

I don't see Rachel's (of Dave & Rachel) blonde hair in the team fourth from the left and if you look here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,26453.msg702419.html#msg702419) you'll see our blonde Rachel has a pink top on underneath, just like the girl on the far left.

Though I might be wrong myself, it's hard to tell with it not being too clear. Hear that CBS? We want a new promo!!

This cast appears designed by CBS to create maximum conflict within teams. I have never seen so many teams (almost all of them) which cite alpha issues with their partners since both of them want to be the decision-maker. It will be interesting to see how well teams with two alphas do. I am going to hypothesize that the teams who have one member able to play second fiddle will have more cooperation and success. I am going through the contestants list again to identify which ones I feel are in that category.
Title: Re: TAR 20 Contestant Speculation and Spoilers
Post by: apskip on January 25, 2012, 11:28:21 AM
I have considered each team. Here are the ones who I rate as having one alpha and one non-alpha member:

Dave/Cherie
Kerri/Stacy

That's it. Pretty short list, isn't it?

Fun cast , super competitive and definitely alpha types everywhere.....
I think the producers were looking for alpha types to counter act with rachel/brendan's Sneaky competitiveness. . Which makes sense ,  Drama does make good tv......

Where is the Sister / brother team???

I love the amazing race but I wanna see Latino /Hispanics on this show!!!!!!
