The girl on the left resembles Ally:

So first team is possibly Ashley Covert (thanks Kandace) and Ally Mello

Both haven't tweeted recently either.

Them together:

I'm tempted to say bombing victims Kaitlyn Cates and Leo Fonseca (video source here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvpcteFFUM0)), but her lower right leg was injured in the attack, so...maybe not.
Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation
Post by: Heliox on June 09, 2013, 08:53:31 PM
They sure look alike, but the video posted on May 23 said that she had only been off crutches for 4 days at the time of the taping of that interview. I can't imagine how she would be ready to race a few weeks later. .. but they sure look similar.

It makes sense though with the Boston Strong shirts!

Post by: Plaidmoon on June 09, 2013, 09:36:20 PM
It sure looks like a match to me as well. The hairlines on the guy are a perfect match. Maybe Kaitlynn made a quick recovery or perhaps they are going to try their best while she limps through things and lets Leo tackle the more physical challenges. He looks up to it.

If it is Leo and Kaitlynn, then some poor team got dropped at the last minute, no doubt. That's gotta hurt.  :gaah:

The scene was getting quite a bit of attention:  see the lady in the upper right.

Dozens of cellphone cameras taking shots and I heard countless travelers calling friends to describe the situation.

I'm definitely getting Season 4/15 vibes with the amount of M/M teams

Is that 4 I'm counting? (African-American guys, Blue Bandanas, Yellow Shoes, and Duck Dynasty [stolen from graytex])

Post by: Chateau d If on June 10, 2013, 01:15:52 AM
Also on board for Miami is a Team that calls themselves The Afghanimals.  Xbox 360 Halo 4 gamers (http://gamebattles.majorleaguegaming.com/xbox360/halo-4/team/no-turning-back)

Note the yellow splotches on the fronts of their shirts:  it's a map of Afghanistan

I think I have found one of the Afghanimals. His name is Will something.

https://live.xbox.com/en-PH/Profile?gamertag=afghanimal is the profile. It is weird that he was last online on JUNE 8. :)

And teams were probably sequestered by 9, so it would collaborate with the story. And the avatar style he has glasses, so it could be the guy on the left!

So is the final count 2 F/F, 4 M/F, and 5 M/M?

There is a Musician /Band memeber on FB called Mookie Spoox the Afghanimal.

Those two are definitely metalheads, not hippies. My roommate is a metalhead hoping she can identify them or their shirts if they're in a band. They may just be fans of the genre though.

That seems to be the case.  I'm sure I'm going to be indifferent to or not fond of the two young guys.  We already had an alpha-male team win last season and I don't particularly care for a repeat -- unless the alternative is a M/F or even a F/F team I dislike!

Post by: Brannockdevice on June 10, 2013, 11:26:06 AM
How do we have 5 guy teams? There are the tall black guys (1), the guys with the blue bandanas (2), the metalheads with the long beards (3), and the Afghanimals/guys with the yellow shoes (4). I may be wrong, but I do think we only have 4 so far...
Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation

oops... quoted the wrong post. Meant to quote on the pictures of the Afghanimal that Peach posted asking if she thought they were a match.


I don't know Peach, doesn't look close enough for a 100% match, imho. The nose, and the earings don't match in those pictures, to my eye.
 There are a number of hits for Afghanimals on google. Including gamers, hip hop, actual soldiers in Afghan and a poker player that I could find.

The Afghanimals X-Box group is founded by a Will O'Leary from somewhere in Europe (probably Ireland). Likely not related to our guys unless they said something about being gamers.

Fixed. This makes things a little more clear, IMO.

F/F Teams:
-La Kings Cheerleaders
-Team Girls Pink/Orange

M/M Teams:
-Team African American
-Team Duck Dynasty/Beards
-Team Afghanimals/Video Gamers/Yellow Shoe Boys
-Team Blue Guys (Blue Bandana)

M/F Teams:
-Team Boston
-Team Middle Aged Couple (Red Bandana)
-Blonde/Pink Haired Girl w/boy M/F
-Interracial Couple (Lime Green Bandana)

10 teams

I feel like we are missing a F/F team, but it could also be a M/F team. If it is a M/M team I will not be so happy...

One of the metalheads is definitely wearing a band t-shirt, I just can't zoom in enough to make it out.

Post by: DavidJunior on June 11, 2013, 12:42:11 PM
Yes, there is a lot of M/M teams this season, but I don't know if it's necessarily a bad thing

The only pair that I would consider "Alpha-male" would be the African-American dudes
Afghanimals, Rockers, new pair, and the pair of average looking college guys just doesn't fit the bill for  "the overly fit, going to dominate the physical tasks and always be near the front of the pack due to their strength, speed, and stamina" type team.

Pair that up with 2 (could've probably had another) seemingly tough and fit F/F teams, two young, and fit looking M/F couples, plus 2 older (at least one of them in the other African-American couple) teams that seem like they can hold their own, I think it's a decently fair mix.

Plus, most of the M/M teams seem to be unique and quirky- the other teams (F/F, and M/F) look kinda generic to me, personally...

I don't think that the metalhead is Sean Zatorsky after looking at more pictures, the eyes just don't match and the head shape is a bit different.

Also Sean updated his facebook page 3 hours ago.

Post by: Hooky on June 11, 2013, 08:14:29 PM
Sorry for triple-posting. Bringing over my summary post from the Spec thread.

So based on what we have so far...

Teams sighted at the Pit Stop:
Team Interracial *or* Black Couple M/F
Team Afghanimals M/M
Team African-American M/M
Team Bingo M/M
Team Red/Pink with black bags F/F

Teams on the first flight:
Team Interracial *or* Black Couple M/F
Team Afghanimals M/M
Team African-American M/M
Team Cheerleaders F/F
Team Red/Pink with black bags F/F

I would assume that Team Bingo M/M (the previously missing team) and team Pink/Blonde hair M/F were also on the first flight, since they were grouped with other first flight teams in the Chile sightings. Also, since the first flight seems to have arrived a while before the second, it appears (barring any catastrophes for the remaining first flight teams) that the following teams (all on the last flight) will be fighting for last place on Leg 1 and possible elimination.

Last Flight Teams:
Team Older Couple M/F
Team Blue M/M
Team Boston M/F
Team Duck Dynasty M/M

Here are the other two teams who also aren't confirmed as having checked in.

First Group Teams who weren't seen checking in:
Team Cheerleaders F/F
Team Pink/Blonde Hair M/F

Someone please correct me if I made any errors.

I'll look when I get home from work, but those guys are 100% defensive players. Probably on last years team. If they were still playing, they probably would have practices to report to near the end of filming. Just my two cents. That's how I found Trey last summer.

A day or two back, I saw a instagram picture of Az-Zahir Hakim and Darnay Scott at some football camp that was taken last year and I thought they looked like the Aztec team. Unfortunately, I can't find that picture now. I was intending to look further into it, but I haven't hadn't a chance to do it yet. However, one is 35 and the other is 41 and I'm not sure the Aztec team is quite that old.

Az-Zahir Hakim hasn't tweeted from his personal (@AzHakim_81) or Foundation (@Hakim4Kids) accounts since May 28th. Darnay Scott doesn't appear to have a twitter account. I did find what may be Darnay Scott's Facebook account (https://www.facebook.com/darnay.scott.5 (https://www.facebook.com/darnay.scott.5)), which has activity in the last day or two, but the pictures of him now look younger than when he was in the NFL, so I'm not sure it is really his page.

According to the information compiled in Wikipedia, San Diego State University has had a football team going back to the merger of two colleges in 1921. Originally part of the NCAA Division II, it became a Division I school in 1969.

I think if you zoom out in picture 6 there are two men walking in the women's direction (just exiting the line) with backpacks on. If I had a guess I think it is their respective teammates. One has a blue shirt (team boston?) and the other looks like he is wearing a black vest jacket with the same color shirt (grey) as his teammate with the pink hair.  Funny how many of us thought both of these teams were eliminated early because of a lack of sightings and all the sudden they pop up.

The woman in team Boston had a blue backpack, so that probably is her..
We have the cheerleaders and afghanimals seen at Lisbon.
We have the pink-tip hair blond seen at Santiao airport. That's 3 teams.
Blue bandanas in Santiago. That's 4.
One black man , not sure if the footballers or the co-ed team, only saw one. Makes 5 teams.
One or two women with long brownish hair- the other ff team or with the coed team. Possibly 6.
But not  sure except for the first four.

Brunettes - Photo 1,2,3,7
Blondes - Photo 10 (and spotted in Lisbon)
Afghanimals - Photo 8,10 (and spotted in Lisbon)

and in the photo of a team running down the gangway towards gates, the guy has a blue backpack and is African American - so the Lime green African American couple (blue packs)? or secondly San Fran Guys (however they have black packs based on L.A. photo?) - Photo 9

This leaves 4 teams unseen in photos and only 9 teams (possibly 10) could be going to Lisbon:

Rockers
Older Hispanics
San Fran African American Guys or Lime Green African American Couple

They can easily qualify for beauty queens, but I don't think so. And one of them looks like Kim from Survivor at first glance.

They look like sisters to me, but they do have the vibe of creating another "awesome possum" season. Perhaps they might be like Andie & Jenna, "separated at birth". It seems like they should have had an interesting background story to get casted into TAR23. Not being rude or anything.

Introducing Team Baseball Wives/Friends!


Nicky and Kim apparently became friends during their time together in Kansas City and Chicago. As "Baseball Wives" they share a common bond.


Nicole Korinek Getz

"Nicky" graduated from Michigan State and received her Master's from the Univ of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business. She is a CPA and has worked as a Tax Consultant.

Her Linked profile?
Nicole Getz
CPA & World Traveler :lol:

She now lives in both Kansas and the Chicago area...because she is married to Chris Getz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Getz), second baseman for the Kansas City Royals. He started his professional career with the Chicago White Sox. They married in January 2012.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2023/Teams/Nicky%20and%20Kim/NICKYgp.jpg)


Kim Dejesus is an actress (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5152091/), a model, and a Mom. She graduated from ASU with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

She is married to David DeJesus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_DeJesus), an outfielder with the Chicago Cubs. He also played with the Kansas City Royals from 2003 to 2010.

She is actively involved with running their family foundation (http://www.daviddejesusfamilyfoundation.org/page1/index.html), with a special interest in fighting ALS. She has spent several summers working in villages, orphanages, schools and infirmaries in some very poor parts of the world.

Excited for brunettes (Nicki & Kim) and pink-hair team (Tim & Marie) :conf:, but not that fond about Nicki & Kim's relationship.

Tim & Marie look like the Ken & Tina-type of racers. They look like a father/daughter duo, but are actually married. They are able to do well in tasks, but have some struggles. Best of all, they may even make the final 3!

I think you might be right considering they are 3 years apart...both played for SDST and both played for the texans in 2009.  not only that, they were both featured in a super bowl ad from a few years back.  salaam saw pitts bagging groceries and convinced to walk on to the team.

'Noodle arms' posted pics on instagram 1 week ago... If he's her BF - then who could be racing with Marie? Brother? Father?

I checked on Ashley's Twitter and her first Tweet was July 3rd at past after midnight or before 1 a.m. Pacific time, just shortly after the race ended. Ally's last Tweet was May 11 (on a personal family conversation), but it hasn't opened her Twitter account.

If she isn't racing with her boyfriend, there is a Tim Mazzocchi who served in the Marines and wrestled. No idea if the two are related or if she even has a brother.

I just thought they were both Afghan-Americans: Temory Is common in Afghanistan (at least according to LinkedIn); but Lamaj seems to be of Albanian origin.
My guess for the website? They've been in the WRP bullpen for a year, and he's been squatting on the site name just in case.

Lamaj is also Jamal backwards.  :groan: I can't find a "Zadran investment group" but I have found a "zig motorsports" operating in Irvine and run by a Jamal Zadran.

Hello, new guy here, long time lurker, been kind of helping on places other than RFF a little lately and found something that I need some help with so figured I'd finally register.

Anyway, I noticed a few of the verified cast followed someone that may or may not be from Team Bingo at the same time they followed others from the cast on various social media.

The guy they started following is Benjamin Floyd (https://twitter.com/benjaminfloyd). I'm assuming as someone in a public field as him, he has assistants that were keeping his social sites active. Now I can only assume here because as far as I know, there is no good picture of the second guy in this team other than seeing him be slightly bigger and middle-skin tone. Anyway, I started clicking around, saw he contributes to a site (http://www.timetoplaymag.com/ https://twitter.com/TimetoPlay) The guy in a bunch of those site's videos is Jim Silver (https://twitter.com/jimsilver) Looks awfully similar to the Team Bingo guy we did see. Both are Dad Bloggers as their connection.

So now I just need help figuring out if I really stumbled into a team. Team Dad Bloggers, Ben and Jim, yay or nay?

Edit: Went back and looked at all the pictures in this thread. Adding in another assumption with a picture that this may be the same missing guy on the team?
Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation
Post by: north09 on July 07, 2013, 08:21:47 PM
I like the second guy, but I've been watching these contestants on various social media accounts, and I never saw them following either of these guys. Benjamin Floyd is from Houston, the same town as Chester, which would at least explain him following him if he does. I think I just need to see a little more evidence here of who is following them and from where before I bite.

Plus I would add that our Bingo team appears to be father/son. Whether they are or not remains to be seen, but they should appear that way to the public eye.

I dont think that is confirmed in any way....I believe that was an observation and not a fact? ???

Exactly it was an observation, so they should look the way they appeared. Like a father/son, even if they aren't.

Her and her father perhaps? http://missfullerton.com/imageview.php?img=656&gal=59 Puts her age around 28-29. I swear the woman on the TAR team looks older than that, but my eyes probably deceive me again.

There's also  a Warren Venkatesh, age 57, from Irvine, CA, but no pictures of this person anywhere. All other Venkatesh searches pop up in Northern California.

Dancers Lead Cheers for Fans of the OC Gladiators

They’re not cheerleaders, they’re dancers. That’s what members of the Goddesses are, young women who love to dance and enjoy leading fans as they root for the local semi-pro basketball team, the Orange County Gladiators.

The dance team boasts years of experience in competitive dance, but there’s more to each girl than being in the limelight. Each is currently in college or has a degree, or is working already in business. There’s no real paycheck, but there are perks, said Jessica Decille.

“We get free tanning and hair,” she said. “The Tribeca Salon does our makeup, unless we do it ourselves, and the team pays for our uniforms.


(http://ultimatecheerleaders.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/ocgoddesses.jpg)
ocgoddesses

“We’re not cheerleaders,” she adds. “Cheerleaders tumble. We’re dancers.”

Decille is taking classes at Saddleback College in food, nutrition and dietetics, she said, and plans to transfer to California State University Long Beach.

Lindsay Hofstatter is a freshman at Chapman University and is majoring in communicative disorders. She loves performing and is on the dance team at Chapman.

Naina Venkatesh is studying kinesiology and public health. “I love dancing, and would love to dance with NBA and NFL teams, and work as a fitness instructor at 24-Hour Fitness,” she said.

Marissa Domantay is the dance director. This is her second year, and she and Stephanie Manista, assistant director, held the auditions this year.

“We form teams about a month before the season begins,” Manista said. She adds that she works as a marketing manager and has an MBA from the University of Southern California.

About 20 girls tried out for the Goddesses this year.

Naina's father is not Warren. His name is Hoskote and he is 60 years old. He is another doctor.... ER/Int Med MD.
This should be who we are looking for.

Team Long hairs might take a while to find.

Did we ever TRULY exhaust the Duck Dynasty possibilities?? Somehow I don't thik they would repeat musicians/band members so soon again, so can we re-look at Ducks? Or some similar type groups? This might be a father/son as well, it is hard to tell by the photos the age ranges.

Thinking who has long hair these days... ???

Me and my traiiner watch that show a lot. It's no one from that show. It is possible it's a team with that hobby, but I think the black clothes and long hair points to metal musicians. James & Abba were pretty well liked.

Seems like we found some Southern live off the land types when we were looking for Chuck?  Maybe go this route? (pure spec!) Duck Dynasty itself does not seem likely...

That 'demon looking lion mouth' printing on one of their shirt could possibly leads to heavy metal music band...

and there's a word so hard to un-blurred with my eyes, unless someone has an expert software, the word might say: 'oriolan' , 'criolas' , whatever that is, could refer to any relevant groups, and the logo that looks like mocking jay hunger game version printed on the other shirt...

Hi guys, I'm new here but I'm such a huge fan from Ireland and have been following your feeds closely lol!
I don't know if this info is of any use but I think the shirt one of the long hairs is wearing says "Orlogin" so I googled that and it led me to some music on youtube be a band named orlogin. The music seems sort of dark but kind of matches their look?

Welcome to RFF, SteKay!

 :bigwelcome

Thanks for passing along your thoughts about Orlogin. I can't find a good shot of the teams shirts to see what I think it says. I tried hunting down some pictures of Orlogin and didn't find much. There were references that made it sound like Orlogin is just one person, but that doesn't rule out it being Orlogin and a friend. He doesn't appear to use images of himself on his Facebook page or in the videos I briefly looked at, just one very shadowy picture of himself in a hoodie where you can only see the lower half of his face. He has a mustache and may have some form of short beard, but doesn't appear to have a long beard. I'd share the pictures I found on Facebook, but we're not supposed to do that. After looking it over, I don't think that either of the Rockers is Orlogin. They could be fans of him though.
Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation

Just a thought, but looking back I think the word on his shirt is 8 letters.
The most obviously striking team has been the hardest to find >.< They seem to be the most stand out team since Kent/Vyxsin!
Have you looked down a possible gamers route for these guys yet?

*Lightswitch* Could they be tattooists?

Post by: Macaroons on August 11, 2013, 06:49:32 PM
I do not have any additional info on the longhair team but I think that they may be a father and son team.

If you look at the one with the orange hat it looks like there could be some gray in his beard and possibly some wrinkles around his eyes, suggesting that he might be about 45 years old. The other one looks younger to me and could be early or mid 20's.

Also Walkingpneumonia pointed out above that the orange hat one wears a wedding band. To me this is further evidence that they might be a father and son.

Maybe someone can repost the pics and see what they think?

More clues in the Longhairs photos. I still can't figure it out.
Looking closely at the orange hat - it appears mostly dirty at the back and there appears to be an outline of something (maybe ear protection?) that is worn over the hat that stops certain areas of the hat from getting dirty. I've tried to outline it in the photos.

So what dirty occupation do you wear ear protection? Most of the dirt comes from behind you? You can wear an orange baseball cap?
Airport ground crew?
Lumberjack?
Sawmill?
Miner?

Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation

Asked too soon!

It's Carhartt (http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HomeView?storeId=10051&catalogId=10101&fullsite=)

(http://dungareesnet.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/top_rated_jeans.jpg?w=690)

This fits in with WP's occupational guesses.
Title: Re: TAR 23 Contestant Spoilers and Speculation
Post by: north09 on August 12, 2013, 05:20:12 PM
The symbol on the hat kind of reminds me of a park ranger or cops patch. Maybe it is the logo of some public service company, again fitting in with the suggested occupations.

Post by: Plaidmoon on August 13, 2013, 03:49:25 PM
I'm not sure I have a lot of insight about the longhairs, but I'd tend to rule out them being miners. I think that would put a lot of dirt on the cap (especially coal mining), but I think most miners would be wearing hard hats, so it's unlikely he would wear the cap too or that it would have that dirt pattern. Oil workers, maybe? Though I think the hat would be dirtier and probably unwashable.

The Carhartt jeans would suggest some kind of outdoor blue collar work like construction, logging, farming/ranching or hunting.  It probably doesn't go along with rockers or metalheads. Someone mentioned sawmill workers and that's possible, but having long hair around powerful and rapidly spinning machines sounds like a bad mix.

Dont you know if there is a tool to compare and list Facebook mutual friends? It would be MUCH easier to simply put into this tool links for 10 racers profiles we know and if there will be some mutual friends... it has something to do with the Race.

I think we would get the results much quicker...

No offence, but after seeing some of this mystery team photos I got one interesting idea. It would be very interesting to follow a team of homeless people on  their journey around the world in The Amazing Race. For example a couple of homeless people who were never out of the US... do you remember Dreamz from Survivor, right?

I'm currently thinking tattooist or possibly even lawyer. Abba from TAR21 was a music manager, not part of a band. The "Longhair Don't Care 2" could easily reside in California since they look like a 90% recruited team. They don't look as regular people like cousins, brothers, or boyfriends to me...

Does anyone know when the TAR23 cast will be released? I heard it was 20 days before the premiere date.

I think I may have a close find to one of the longhairs. His name's Cody Stauber. Questionable enough, Ashley Covert (Team Kings) liked his Twitter page and he doesn't have that many followers or followings. It may be a coincidence, but it looks like a match with one of the longhairs' faces. Don't have much more info though. Getting to sleep now. :gnite: *hopes*

You can see through his facebook page, he works at LA Kings Ice Crew, that's why he's related to Ashley Covert, so I have to say it doesn't match. But nice try Rachel!  :)

I agree, it looks a lot like Cody, even some of the facial expressions. But it is hard to imagine Cody being as scruffy as the long hairs. Maybe the eyes are not quite a match. Good job  though.

I don't know the identity of the longhairs, but I might have a lead on the orange baseball cap ...

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2023/Teams/Longhairsmarked.jpg)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2023/Teams/team7.jpg)

I have a similar orange cap from Cabela's, where the logo is sewed on and the edges of the logo patch are intentionally tattered.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v442/zzunk/Cabelasorangecap_zps2aeec575.jpg)

I think the dark staining on longhairs' cap is just dirt and sweat-grime, since the darkest tones are the fabric between the seams and where fingers grab on it. 

Given how dirty the cap is, I am guessing they are loggers, ranchers or dope growers.
