If The Amazing Race had a 15th anniversary special...
« on: July 15, 2012, 07:32:42 AM »
I've noticed that since the show's start in 2001, All Stars was filmed in 2006 (5th year anniversary) and Unfinished Business aired in 2011 (10th year anniversary). So if the next 'returning teams edition' follows this structure, it should be filmed/aired around the show's 15th anniversary (2016).

I have a crazy idea that for that special season, 15 teams from the past 15 years of the show should participate. It's almost impossible, I know, but if it did happen here are the 15 teams I'd like to see return:

1. Blake & Paige (Season 2)
2. Derek & Drew or Ken & Gerard (Season 3)
3. Linda & Karen (Season 5)
4. Jonathan & Victoria (Season 6, just to see if anything has changed)
5. Billy & Carissa (from Gaghan family, Family Edition, they would be early 20s)
6. Erwin & Godwin (Season 10)
7. Andrew & Dan (Season 13)
8. Brian & Ericka (Season 15)
9. Michael & Kevin (Season 17)
10. Bill & Cathi (Season 19)
11. Bopper & Mark (Season 20)
12. Nary & Jamie (Season 20)
13 to 15. Teams from Season 21 to this season.

Although I would prefer teams that have not won the race and have not participated in All Stars or Unfinished Business, I would be fine if only a few of them take the slots of the above teams.

I would really like if it had memorable challenges from past seasons but in unvisited locations (such as my parent's birth country, Laos) and maybe a return of the Yield and the 'one Fast Forward a leg' rule.

So if this edition was viable, who would your 15 teams be and what are some of the possible tasks teams would encounter?

I was thinking the same as you! well pretty much. What I thought was a Mega-AllStars season in season 25 - season 25 would be almost unprecedented territory for reality TV so it should be celebrated. Here, i would have a double season... i.e. 24 teams return for a 26 leg race. It would be awesome, and i think that they would bring back the best of the best (entertainment and performance wise). There would be 1 team from each season. Would it be expensive? Yes... Would it be entertaining? YES!

My teams would be  (and why)

1. Rob and Brennan - (competitive, original winners, not bad to watch)
2. Gary and Dave - (hilarious, not Ka disgrace as far as winning)
3. Ken and Gerrard - (same as for Gary and Dave)
4. Tian and Jaree - (first competitive female team) OR David and Jeff - (didnt get a shot at the million after bad flight choice)
5. Colin and Christie - (one of the best teams to never win it)
6. Lena and Kristy - (Crap teams besides them in this season, and like to see how far they would have gone)
7. Meredith and Gretchen - (Best old team) OR Rob and Amber (Id like to see if they still have it)
8. Gaghan Kids - (Id like to see them against the experienced, normal race teams)
9. BJ and Tyler - (Winners, funny, great to watch)
10. Erwin and Godwin - (Id like to see them without them waiting for hours on other teams... they could have done well)
11. Joe and Bill (Id love to see their tactics even with age) OR Oswald and Danny (Fan favourites, competitive)
12. Azaria and Hendekea - (Competitive, good to watch, robbed a chance of winning by silly woman at airport)
13. Nick and Starr - (Great team, dominant, but the other teams in their season were crap and id like to see em against good teams)
14. Mark and Michael - (Could have gone far if not for the silly penalties)
15. Maria and Tiffany - (Unlucky to be eliminated, good all female team) OR Sam and Dan (Competitive, good racers)
16. Steve and Allie - (Underrated father-daughter team)
17. Michael and Kevin - (Funny, good to watch, unlucky to be eliminated) OR Brook and Claire (Awesome team)
18. Jet and Cord - (Fan favourites, unlukcy not to win on 2 occasions)
19. Andy and Tommy - (Best team to not make final 3)
20. Mark and Bopper - (Fan favourites, injury hampered them)

If I were to pick the cast from above, it would be: Rob and Brennan, Gary and Dave, Ken and Gerrard, Tian and Jaree, Colin and Christy, Lena and Kristy, Meredith and Gretchen, Brook and Claire*, BJ and Tyler, Erwin and Godwin, Joe and Bill, Azaria and Hendekea,
Nick and Starr, Mark and Michael, Maria and Tiffany, Louie and Michael, Michael and Kevin, Jet and Cord, Andy and Tommy, Mark and Bopper

* Instead of Season 8 teams... Wasnt a real TAR season and no teams worthy from this season.

What do u think of this?
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

Ooh I love the thought of a fifteenth special. Featuring teams from the first 25 seasons.
It might get a bit out of hand.
So many teams to choose from.
Eric & Lisa in S15, eliminated at the gate.
Erwin & Godwin S10.
Lena & Kristy S6 with the hay bales.
Colin & Christie S5 intense.
Brian & Greg S7 crash.
Jon & Al S4 +David & Cherie S20 clowns.
Brooke & Claire S17 Watermelon.
Mark & Bopper S20 country folks can survive.
Azaria &(Hedekea-sis or Christina-wife) S12
Justin & Jennifer S19 the look.
My favorites the cowboys, Rob & Amber, Charla & Mirna, Oswald & Danny.
So many to choose from.
