Could this be an All-Star season, with these three teams being the three on the bubble they allowed the public to vote for?

No, it's more along the lines of BBCAN5.

There's a "second chance" theme this season, so having one returning team fits in nicely with that.

Could those non-Canadian people be allowed to vote for those selected teams to race for a second chance?

I've been able to vote as an American, and you can vote as much as you want. The only problem I had so far was trying to vote on the first day when web traffic was heavy.

The hashtags count as votes if you have Twitter. So anyone can vote, really.

Yeah, I've already voted multiple times on the website from here south of the border. hehe
And of course on Twitter as well. Jet and Dave have both been engaging with fans who've voted for them so far.

Despite the fact that Jon Montgomery > Arisa Cox in terms of hosting competency, it would be unfortunate if the two teams not chosen still had to appear at the Starting Line alongside Canada's Choice.

The other nine teams on the new season have also been recruited from previous seasons. They are teams that have “overcome challenges and faced reinventions and transformations,” according to CTV’s press materials.

So it IS an All-Stars?! If so, that's some clever word choice.

Arisa's Way better [at being an incompetent host].

Fixed.

Since no other source has made a similar claim, it seems likeliest that this writer misinterpreted Canada's Choice; in other words, those nine remaining teams are all non-returnees until proven otherwise.

There is no evidence for this being an AllStars AT THIS TIME.

I think it would be very odd for this to be an All-Stars season if those are the three teams up for a vote. Jet & Dave especially would be one of the top priority "gets" for such a season. Not have to risk them losing a vote like this.

I agree writer probably misinterpreted the idea.

VOTING ENDS TONIGHT AT 11:59pm, get those last minute votes in either by using the hashtags on Twitter or vote online at CTV.com

Man, were all 3 teams blitzing last-minute votes on Twitter yesterday. Especially Frankie & Amy.

And that's probably the last we'll hear until the cast reveal. Except us here on RFF, of course, chances are we'll be in the know when it films ;)

Yes, the Starting Line will almost certainly be non-public/non-live so as to pay impartial lip service to the three nominees (and each of their fanbases).

In the spirit of 'second chance', do you guys think if the vote was tight that they would bring back 2 teams?
The way I see it plan out, I think they will announce to all 3 teams at the starting line which team is going on the race.
But maybe if the vote is close, I could see them adding an extra team, so we can have 11.
Ex: Jet/Dave you won the vote blablabla, but before we start the race, in the spirit of second chance, Frankie/Amy the result was soo close that we decided you would also race a second time.

I don't know...

Do you think they will announce the Second Chance winner before the start of the race or leave it until the last minute before the start of the race and have all three teams ready on the start line? Then, of course, we wouldn't know until the premier episode airs ;)

I'd hate to be one of the two teams not picked and be left standing on the start line while the others go running.
