I like them! Karen & Bert and Kenneth & Ryan are the polar opposite personalities than what I expected based on sightings (stifled and serious like Brian & Cynthia, Gino & Jesse respectively)

Kinda sad we were wrong about a Saskatchewan team, though :(

3 more still to come tomorrow.

When the fifth season was announced last fall, Mike Cosentino, SVP, content and programming, Bell Media, told MiC that the network would be chasing a millennial audience “more heavily than ever” with the upcoming episodes. That was started with the casting of the new season, looking at the social media footprint of potential racers to bringing on more competitors who would resonate across younger audiences.

It seems like they cast teams in the "fun" , "competitive" or "both" category.

Fun
Kenneth and Ryan
Dan and Riya
Courtney and Megan (supposedly)
Zed and Shabbir???
Aaron and Deb

Competitive
Korey and Ivana
Sam and Paul

Both
Bert and Karen
Adam and Andrea
Ebonie and Andrea
Amazing race canada 2 3 4
Hope for the best Expect the worst

It's the same patterns as how the US casts a ton from California despite there being 49 other states, mostly in and around Los Angeles, where they're based. I see Ken & Ryan as a 3rd BC team due to them both living there now.

Shanghai and Bangkok should've totally been two separate Legs.

Andrea and Ebonie lasting at least seven legs out of eleven, or over half the race!  :conf:  :bunny  :D

If they're indeed the 6th placers, then every position from 11th upwards will have been represented by at least one F/F across five seasons ~

Well, now knowing where leg 9 is, I'd post how I'm feeling about the remaining portion of the route at the moment. But profanity-laced rants to production are probably against forum rules, so I'll spare it ;)

Well you can always just give us your bleep-free opinions and let us use our imagination where the bleeping should go.  :escape

Bummed that S3 was the last one with a mid-race special, but at least that anomaly during S4 was just a one-time thing!

Glad that they didn't merely rehash the Tanzanian beekeeping task ~

Another F4 Face-Off?  :groan:

Whoever loses that is sure to be eliminated, for some reason TARCAN loves putting those near the end of the leg and I just don't get it. It should be the first task of the leg to allow the losing team an opportunity to catch up.

It's a combination with crokinole, a Canadian board game with a wooden board and a circular path for pegs. My late grandmother used to play it. Yeah, would have worked better if they could set up a giant crokinole board :p
