Title: Teams Asked Back For All Stars But Couldn't Compete
Post by: Air on October 03, 2012, 08:21:48 PM
I've been wondering about All-Stars, and the teams that were asked to compete again. For instance, I know that Meredith & Gretchen and Kelly & Jon were asked to return to compete but declined. Were there any other teams?

Idk if you count unfinished business as all-stars, I do, but Brooke and Claire from 17 were asked to return, however one of them was pregnant. :(

Colin & Christie were asked to compete in All-Stars (Season 11), but Christie was pregnant at that time.

Flo & Drew were asked to compete in All-Stars (Season 11), but Flo wouldn't do it without Zach and she thought the Race brought out the worst in her.

Kris and Jon were also asked to be in the All Star, but they declined the offer.

I think I heard about Brooke & Claire (17), but apparently Claire was busy for her wedding preparations or something.

Meridith and Gretchen  were asked back? I wonder who was at the bottom of the list and were added to the cast as these teams declined.

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Meredith and Gretchen were asked back but declined because they felt they had gotten too old to be competitive. I have no idea if that is true or not.

I'll quote the Wikipedia information about the selection process for TAR All Stars (season 11) for what it's worth. I don't claim it's reliable, but it's probably as good as any other source.

This season's 11 teams were selected from past contestants, representing seven of the series' first ten editions (omitting Seasons 4, 6, and 8 ).[10] Keoghan personally submitted a list of 15 teams that he thought should return. Ten of them were chosen. The one he didn't choose was Eric and Danielle, who did not previously race together. Keoghan said, "I didn't think of that new combination, which actually is a really good one."[11] He also added that the production team's goal for the race "wasn't to pick the best racers", but "to pick the teams that have earned the most attention over the last 10 seasons".[8] (Despite the "All-Stars" title, only one team, Uchenna and Joyce, was a winner of a previous season.) Some former racers were angered by their omission from All-Stars, most notably Chip and Kim (Season 5) and BJ and Tyler (Season 9) who publicly criticized CBS' casting process.[12] Colin and Christie (Season 5) were expected to be in All-Stars but could not participate due to Christie's pregnancy.[13] Flo Pesenti and Drew Riker (who began dating after meeting on The Amazing Race 3) were invited to participate, but Flo reportedly declined for two reasons: she felt the first race had brought out the worst in her, and her TAR3 winning partner Zach Behr was not invited to join her. The newly created team for All-Stars thus became Eric and Danielle.

Poor Phil. The only team he didn't want on the race won. :tantrum

And I believe Teri and Ian were a replacement for Meredith and Gretchen, John Vito and Jill was a replacement team too (Kris and Jon or any other dating/married couple).

I on the other hand was glad BJ and Tyler was not chosen. THANK GOD.

BJ and Tyler are awesome!

Anyone else find it ironic that the two most positively editing winning teams (Chip and Kim, BJ and Tyler), were the winners that complained openly. :lol3:

The reason why BJ and Tyler were not asked back was because they weren't well-received by the viewers. The most positively edited winner = uchenna and Joyce... please. :lol:

In Season 11, Phil had a list of 15 teams he thought should be invited back. 10 teams joined, and Eric & Danielle were the 11th team. The other five teams were Colin & Christie (who accepted but withdrew because Christie got pregnant), Dave & Lori (S9), Kris & Jon, Flo & Drew (S3 hybrid team), and Kelly & Jon (S4).

In S18, all I know is that Brook & Claire wanted to join but withdrew because Claire got pregnant. Also, I read on TVtropes that Steve & Linda (S14) were emergency alternates and was at the starting line city (in case something happens to one of the teams).

In S24, there was a leak of 10 teams that would join, names included Tim & Marie, Pam & Winnie, and Andy & Tommy (you know, the teams that are more ALL STAR than who we got). I'm guessing they didn't expect so much of their initial picks to not want to return. But then again, I don't know if that list is even official.

I remember an interview where Marcus admitted he and Amani were asked for 24 but declined since he had just started a new coaching job when they started filming.

eta http://m.jacksonville.com/sports/football/jaguars/2013-08-03/story/art-listening-jaguars-marcus-pollard-knows-his-role-head

Pretty sure Marcus/Amani and Tim/Marie are the only teams confirmed to have been approached and declined still (the latter is mostly circumstantial ie Marie's twitter which I dare not approach because blech but I think there's a Tim solo interview where he mentions wanting to race again, being asked, and (her) saying no.

In an interview with a reality recaps podcaster (not Rob C.), I remember Marie saying she was too tired to go back onto the race since she had just adjusted back to her regular life and casting asked her to return two weeks after fnishing TAR23. I'll find the link if I have to.

I know that Im late to the party, but I wanted to add some things. Kris & Jon and Kelly & Jon were on All Stars originally, but Kelly & Jon backed out at the last minute. Kris & Jon were cut in favor of Eric & Dani, which makes me sick to my stomach. For S18 & S24, all I know is Brook & Claire, Tim & Marie, and Amani & Marcus, so thanks for adding clarification. But I am still wondering about Trexi, Andy & Tommy, Bill & Cathi, and James & Jaymes. Also, what about Travis & Nicole, they were good racers (pre-indonesia). Btw doesnt CBS hate Trexi? First, they dont invite them for AllStars or they cut them and than they dont even make the dvd cover, instead Amy & Daniel take that spot (who finiahed 10th; but I still love them anyway)
