Title: TAR 24 Contestant Spoilers "Returning Racers"
Post by: georgiapeach on October 16, 2013, 11:15:10 AM
As y'all know, RFF does not reveal the ID's of any racers until teams are safely underway. This season is no different.
 
What we will confirm is that TAR 24 does include returning racers.  :hrt:
 
Feel free to post in speculation and the Wishlist thread until our racers are safely underway!

The only good thing about having three timers is that they give me hope for other possible returning teams.

 Say what u will about Rob and Mirna but they know how the make a good season

Also i want Colin to compete against Rob..

But seriously though..they bring back Margie and Luke and the Cowboys a third time but they forget about the Beauty Queens?
What about the Chippendales? Hell even Amanda and Kris deserve to come back a third time, better than them.

In addition, a race between Colin and Marie would be something to get viewers off his or her feet to enjoy, as if they're watching a sporting event.  Really, just have a season with Maxie, Marie, Rob, Colin, Mirna, and Jaime and it's a win for several at least!



But seriously though..they bring back Margie and Luke and the Cowboys a third time but they forget about the Beauty Queens?

Guess they don't care about TAR before season 14.  In that, they mentioned that no one remembers those teams.  Again, that can't really make sense when they've recreated tasks from those early seasons that "no one remembers".  Plus, it is no different than casting new racers that people don't recognize.

Dustin & Kandice would've been great, but they did get a second shot, in all fairness. Amanda and Kris weren't as awful as people thought (in TAR14, season 18 yes they were), but no way I'd prefer them over those three-timers.

Looks like it's the infamous Eric Sanchez.  Probably has the best 2-season run in TAR history, IMO.  Otherwise, people mentioned it's Brooke but we'll soon find out

This was a joke, JordanJones.  The original frats being spotted is based on someone that actually isn't expected on the race, as well as their cameo in Season 8, a very rare moment where a team is spotted but isn't actually racing.  Eric isn't racing at all, that was related to how he ran the race twice, but with two different people.

I admit IM not a TAR fanatic like everyone else I save that for big brother but what's all the hoopla,over Mallory on the spoiler sites? I don't even remember who she is? Not rooting for any of FF teams? Obvi I am rooting for Brenchel with mark and bopper 2ND.Looks like I am in minority but I like Margie and Luke and father and son with cancer makes good Tv stories and the globetrotters who are funny together?Physically along with brenchel strong team but there bad with water and analytical or thinking tasks which could cause them game again?

Title: Re: TAR 24 Contestant Spoilers "Returning Racers"
Post by: Mister RC on November 17, 2013, 12:29:19 AM
It isn't a matter of what makes sense and what doesn't make sense. Maybe John & Jessica aren't the best choice in terms of the upcoming race, but with 11-12 spots, most teams over 20 seasons full of teams of 2 are going to get left out.

With James and Jaymes, as well as Travis and Nicole, they are two of most teams, and that's gonna suck.  However, the former is busy with a ton of upcoming shows. With T/N, their profession (and a family) does not make it easy to disappear (especially having done so earlier this year)

Real life commitment buddy, CBS cannot force any individuals to fulfill the producer's interest, they might just be saved for the upcoming unfinished-business or another all-stars season (S28/S29)
Think of what the racers left behind, jobs, family, etc...

Also, we don't know exactly what will happen during the rest of TAR 23. It's possible Travis and Nicole will be the winners. If that happened, it's unlikely they would invited back for TAR Somewhat Above Average Teams The Producers Liked.

Sorry. I don't think it's Brook.

According to her Facebook (last updated Friday) she is in Mexico doing something with the Baja 1000 race.

So unless she got to LA on Saturday she is most likely not Mallory's Prather.

Post by: Hysha on November 17, 2013, 06:56:22 AM
Ok, let's see! (Sorry for my english. hehehe)

I Love: Brendon & Rachel. Natalie & Nadiya. Caroline & Jennifer. Joey & Meghan. John & Jessica.
Good: Mark & Bopper. Dave & Connor.
I like but I don't want in this season: Margie & Luke. Mallory & ¿Brook?.
Dislike: Herb & Nate. Jet & Cord.
I Hate: Leo & Jamal.

Well, I think they can do a better cast. I don't want third-timmers. Sorry, but I say many times, they are a lot of teams who can be here for a second opportunity. M&L, H&N, M&B and J&C had it's second opportunity and they can't win.

I really hate Assgh. are in this season... What are they doing here? :/ Assgh. are the most annoying team I've ever seen!

John... what are you doing with your hair? xD With the hair you have on the 22nd season you are more cute.. xD

At contrary of the most part of you, I love J&J are here. :) Joey & Meghan too.

I don't know if Mark & Bopper are a good choice. I think they aren't so strong... on his season they want to give up the race some times..

And, for the 23rd season... Only one team could win. And they are 3 amazing teams... Tim & Marie, Travis & Nicole and Jason & Amy. Two of these couples don't win. Why are not in this season!? ¬¬ (I know, maybe you don't like this teams, but they are so much better than Assgh.)
Perhaps gave them the opportunity and they reject it, but I don't think they reject the three couples. :/

P.D: If you know who win the 23rd season, don't tell me, or i'll kill you! xD)

Okay guys, if you are just discussing who you like don't like, take it to the Bitch and Moan thread please? And NO discussion of 23 here at all.

We have some getting used to the forum to do, this is the place for discussion of the teams on the race and how they are racing, not a fan thread. Okay?  Thanks! I will be moving stuff around later on.

Regarding Mallory:

We believe that there may not be 12 teams. And we have not seen Brook or Bopper in any footage to date.

So our current conclusion, based on photo evidence, is that Mallory and Mark are running the race together.

Mallory and Mark?
One of the stone rules of TAR is that couples have a pre-existing relationship before entering the race.
What or where or how do these two align? Are they from the same city/town?

This better not be a purely production based pairing. Don't get me wrong I like both of these guys, but it really changes what TAR is about if there is no relationship other than both being on TAR in the past.

Very disappointed Bopper is not racing with mark he was the reason to root for team KY his relationship with mark made the team.Even if mark and Mallory are friendly off show don't like cbs wanted Mallory so bad bopper was sacrificed should have just left her and mark off show and brought on true team like the chippendales?Looks like I can eliminate another team that will make it far in.game?

Mark & Mallory???? Son of a monkeys uncle!! I didn't see that coming...................AT ALL.
Since i mean they're never been in the same season
And the Globetrotters are now using their real name i assume??

And we have 3 teams who are racing for the 3rd time, this is like their second second chance
I'd love to see Margie & Luke, Globetrotters is okay, but the cowboys???  NOT again. NOT them. Are people still bitter about how the brothers ~robbed~ them in season 16?? Even i rather see Kent & Vyxsin instead of the cowboys. Pretty sure they have a huge target behind them even before the race is begin lol. I hope the cowboys are not as good.

I'm only excited for Brenchel (i knew that they would comeback, i hope they can at least win a leg this time. i know they are capable even though i think  Rachel is much better without Brendon in Big Brother and not the other way around)
....and the twinnies!!

hoping to see some drama between brenchel & twinnies



can i just hope that the reason why Marie did not want to return to TAR because they already won lol

We only know that Mark/Bopper and Gary/Mallory are "close" (probably just know each other) and have worked together on charity events in Kentucky.
Bopper has a daughter who is unfortunately not very well and I hope there's nothing wrong with her and that's why he can't race...

Post by: georgiapeach on November 18, 2013, 09:28:37 PM
The most likely reason for a TEAM to be pulled last minute would be something medical...as in could not pass the final physical, or a family emergency.  As far as I know when that or something similar has happened the TEAM goes. But swapping out one team member only would be I think a first in TAR history, and a VERY interesting casting decision.

Post by: Dånooky on November 18, 2013, 10:44:24 PM
To me, this lineup seems like a Vets vs. Newbs, but on a different level than what we were thinking at first. I think CBS wanted both Gallory and Mopper, but since Gary and Bopper couldn't make it CBS went for the mashup?
Title: Re: TAR 24 Contestant Spoilers "Returning Racers"
Post by: Jobby on November 19, 2013, 12:22:44 AM
If you read the tweets by Ryan Danz, they were okay with him to find a partner after Abbie and him broke up, just that I guess it's really not a choice they would rather go with.

It had to be somebody from the race on an Allstars season and I guess CBS went ahead with it because both teams were fan favourites and maybe they just really wanted Mallory on the race again.

Just a random FUN FACT  about Mallory Ervin

 This summer she was on a show called BackYard Oil. it's  on The Discovery Channel.

 Here's the trailer for her episode. http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/backyard-oil/video/miss-kentuckys-lookin-for-oil.htm

 If you want to know how "well" she did  you can most likely find it on demand on your  cable service or you can look  up the full episode (about 21 mins long) on line.  OR click on the spoiler button

Show content
She struck oil  with a yearly income of 6 figures!

Revising the List below to include the new combo team of Mark and Mallory. Otherwise the cast list remains correct as originally posted.


======================================================================
RFF is proud to share our TAR 24 Cast!!
 
Margie and Luke   (Mother and Son):

Jet and Cord (Cowboy Brothers):
Season 16 (2nd) and 18 (6th)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/jet-cord.jpg)
 
Brendon and Rachel  (Married BB couple):
Season 20 (3rd)

Natalie and Nadiya (Twins):
Season 21 (4th)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/natalie-nadiya.jpg)
 
Caroline and Jennifer (Band mates/Friends):
Season 22 (4th)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/caroline-jennifer.jpg)
 
Joey and Meghan (YouTube Friends):
Season 22 (5th)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/joey-meghan-1.jpg)
Dave And Connor (Father-Son)
Season 22 8th

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/DaveandConnor.jpg)
John and Jessica (Engaged):
Season 22 (9th)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/john-jess.jpg)
 
Leo and Jamal (Afghanimals):
Season 23 (TBD)

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2024/Cast%20pre/leo-jamal.jpg)
M/M Teams:
Herb/Nate
Jet/Cord
Dave/Connor
Mark/Bopper
Leo/Jamal
F/F Teams:
Caroline/Jennifer
Natalie/Nadiya
M/F Teams:
Margie/Luke
Brendon/Rachel
Joey/Meghan
John/Jessica
Mallory/Mark

I'm commenting on the teams now that Season 23 is over:

First the Male-Male teams.  If Leo & Jamal overcome their tendency to annoy other racers by telling unnecessary lies, I might like them.  I liked Jet & Cord more in Season 16 than on Season 18.  Hope they're more like Season 16 racers than Season 18 ones.  I'm thrilled Dave & Connor got a second chance!  Dave was so unlucky in his season!  And finally Flight Time & Big Easy -- I watched several New Scooby-Doo Movies episodes with the Globetrotters (the team with Meadowlark & Curly, of course), so I never minded seeing two Globetrotters on the Race.  Hope they do well this season.

Now the F/F teams:  I liked Caroline & Jennifer but had very mixed emotions on the twins.  I wanted to root for them because of their ethnicity and their being a F/F team but they often annoyed me.  I hope they're nicer this time around.

And now the M/F teams:  I felt sorry for Margie & Luke in Season 18 and I hope they have no bad luck.  On the other hand -- Radon?!  GAH!  It's more Rachel than Brendon, however -- I have too many bad memories of Rachel from Big Brother and that was the main reason I didn't watch the season they were on!  Joey & Meghan sometimes annoyed me but I don't really hate them.  John & Jessica should learn from experience this time!  As for Mark & Mallory -- I'm surprised it wasn't Gary & Mallory or Mark & Bopper but Gary might be too old to compete and if Bopper's daughter was too sick for him to come on, maybe it was best for Mark & Mallory to pair up.

This season's cast isn't neccessarily awful, but it isn't good either. It feels more like another second and third chances season than an all-stars. One thing we have missing in the recent HD seasons that the '00 all-stars had are fully-developed characters. That is what made the first all-stars a memorable hit. I don't feel the same way with the '10 all-stars. Some of them have reached the final 4 and I still don't understand their team dynamic. The editors didn't let us get more in-depth with them. Yet, some of those teams don't even deserve a spot in all-stars... *cough*JessicaJohn*cough*

The comment is sarcasm. To be honest, I don't really know why. If they wanted a controversial team, they could have their picks from last season's final four.

This confuses me too. Maybe CBS didn't tell us the whole title in the preview.
It should be "The Amazing Race All Stars vs All Star Idiots".

They wanted to use "The Amazing Race - Idiots Abroad" - but it was taken. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Idiot_Abroad)

But you do have to remember this is a so-called ALL-STARS season which means bringing back monumental competitors, not just likable teams. Likability of teams seems to be the ONLY thing most viewers care about of TAR these days which saddens me.

The '00 All-Stars featured a cast who did anything to get ahead (Uchenna begging to pay the taxi fare in Ft. Lauderdale, Mirna's airport antics, Rob & Amber's notoriousness throughout TAR7), mixed with competitive drives (BQ's beating the FF Intersection, David & Mary being the only team to nullify the last place 30-min penalty, JVJ's bionic sprinting throughout their time), and memorable surprises from some teams (Joe & Bill surviving a day behind until Alaska, Oswald & Danny going shopping :funny:, Teri & Ian coming in weak, but a fire under their bellies).

The only word that comes to mind for the '10 "all-stars" is 'fan base'. What is Caroline & Jennifer best known for during TAR22? Being unmemorable country band singers who have a FAN BASE.......... What is Brenchel best known for during TAR20? The arguing and whining, and their Big Brother FAN BASE........... What is Joey & Meghan best known for during TAR22? Their YouTube and sometimes ignorant FAN BASE.......... Now what is Jessica & John best known for during TAR22? Making a fool out of themselves by not using the Express Pass and teaming up with the YouTubers that triggered their FAN BASE because of Joey & Meghan. :groan:

To me, this "all-stars" is basically a popularity contest, not a competitive contest.

Then by logic we would have gotten people like Brandam or Tim & Danny (despite the fact I have no idea what people see in them) because everyone melted down and was like *CRIES* BRANDAM ARE ELIMINATED *CRIES* BRANDAM FOR ALLSTARS!!!11!!!!1! all over the FB page and ditto with Tim & Danny.

(CaroJen having a fanbase is pretty shocking, not because they're bad but because they're MOR and NaNa having a fanbase is shocking because I didn't realise that many people off the forums liked them)

Well to be invited to All Stars they need to have SOME fan base or else ratings would be crap, but also the teams you talked about having a fan base also placed 3rd, 4th, and 5th in their original season which all but CaroJen, I think all of the teams you listed were competitive. (Even though tbh, there were more competitive teams like Tim & Marie and Maxie, Abbie & Ryan, Andy & Tommy etc.) Nevertheless, they are still competitive, especially Brenchel with their Art & JJ and Vanessa hate.

Competitive, certainly. It's TAR. :lol: However, uniquely memorable if it was only about their racing tactics, eehhh... if it wasn't for previous show or musical fan base, they would be utter goners.

Brenchel would have been memorable because of Brenchel vs. Ranessa and Brenchel vs. Art & JJ, those were great rivalries! <3

But you do have to remember this is a so-called ALL-STARS season which means bringing back monumental competitors, not just likable teams. Likability of teams seems to be the ONLY thing most viewers care about of TAR these days which saddens me.

It might help if you reread (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_11#Cast) what Phil said about the first All Stars...

Quote
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"

If they wanted competitive racers, they would have brought back some previous winners who won 7 or 8 legs. I don't think the All Stars label is that far off this season, the cast DOES have a bunch of the most memorable teams over the previous 10 seasons. Maybe not the 11 most memorable teams, but almost all of the teams selected for All Stars are polarising enough to have sparked major discussion from viewers.

What confuses me more is why Jessica & John are in this season. The only thing they are known for is making a fool out of themselves with the Express Pass. Even Chuck & Wynona could replace these two.

With all the threepeaters (except Mallory <3), I'm actually rooting for Jessica and John.

I rewatched TAR 22 recently and they weren't rly that bad tbh

To me, this "all-stars" is basically a popularity contest, not a competitive contest.

To prove my point I will post in bold.

In my opinion, TAR would be nothing without fan bases. If we didn't have a fan base in the first place, why would we have twenty three seasons in the first place? And say all you want after Brendon and Rachel, you do not just make the final three. I remember Rachel Reilly (goddess) as being very very competitive in Big Brother, she does not just have that Big Brother record for nothing. They are totally competitive and by saying that they are only known for their fanbase, you are basically being ignorant about their competitiveness in TAR 20. And without Rachel drama, imagine how boring TAR 20 might have been? We would have gotten another "peaceful" season like TAR 19, and even though i liked that season, i know a lot of people here didn't. Now... For Joey & Meghan, i will say, i am a fan of them. I know a lot of people here do not like them. I perfectly understand why. But even though their fan base can be really irritating, they were a team that, like it or not, brought some more viewers to TAR. I remember some of their fans (not the ignorant annoying ones) tweeting about how excited they were for TAR 23 and they became indirectly new TAR fans, which TAR definitely needs to continue living a long and productive TV life. So like it or not, we needed them for this "all stars" anyway. And finally, Caroline & Jennifer... I dont really remember them having this so called "fan base" you are talking about, (in fact i never heard of Stealing Angels but oh well,)  i will say though that i felt that Caroline and Jennifer were pretty memorable on tar 22. They had some good competitive moments. Say that they just rode on Bates & Anthony's coattails the whole way, but there were so much legs where they were forced to work alone, and they actually did pretty damn well in those legs. (Germany, Vietnam, Bali (they survived a horrible Roadblock and got 4th). So i dont really see how they werent memorable and/or not competitive at all. And i do not really understand what you mean by bringing back "competitive teams". Airlines is right, with that logic we would get Brandam :res: and many more boring competitors like Tim & Danny (whom i didnt rly like until they uturned the assghanimals which was before their boot ep but oh well). And TAR has always been about competition. You want the tough competition in TAR 24? Na/Na were pretty damn competitive (but sadly robbed here), Brenchel, as i have said in my point above, are competitive too. Even though i rly dont like them, the Assghanimals and Cancer were pretty competitive teams too! So basically you proved yourself wrong. We have tough competitors, and we have some likable teams. We may not like all of them, (remembers Tar11, cries at no Bama and Linda/Karen and Joe/Bill being in), but we might just see something. TAR 24, even though I do not like the boot order, and threepeaters (except Mallory Ervin <3 but ew at all other threepeaters making it rly far), and the route (double legs everywhere ew), it may not be even THAT bad as we think. I remember absolutely loathing Survivor 27 (Blood Vs. Water) ever since the horrible Caramoan finale and it's reveal, but the result was one of the best seasons of Survivor we have had in YEARS. Who knows, maybe we might get another Returning Racer season and it ends up being the cast we always wanted. For now, we should be basically happy that we get another season of the Race, and even though we may not always agree on the teams we like, we all know that when Phil shouts his trademark "Go!", we will be in for another exciting adventure.

Sorry for the late comment, butI just read this and I am totally agreeing with every thing gamer said. To me, I just like the competition TAR brings. I am alright (sad for awhile) when teams I like being eliminated because I know that there will be that unexpected element in the race which draws me back after 20-odd seasons.
