The official announcement of which teams are coming back for a second go around the world came out this morning.

People online has a good review:

Happy to see again:

Jet & Cord
Kent & Vyxsin
Mel & Mike
Kisha & Jen
Flight Time & Big Easy

Meh:

Amanda & Kris (don't remember them at all)
Gary & Mallory (didn't watch their season)
Zev & Justin


No thanks:

Jamie & Cara
Margie & Luke
Ron & Christina

IIRC, Amanda and Kris were really nice and good racers. Gary and Mallory are nice too - so overall it looks like more good teams than bad ones. Very happy to see the cowboys and the Globetrotters back.

I'd move Gary and Mallory into my "good" list.

I'm looking forward to this season! Unlike non AS seasons, we already know these teams (well, Zev/Justin and Amanda/Kris not as much, but from what I recall they're four cool people). So, versus being a bit confused and not knowing who to root for and what-not, we viewers get to jump right in with the :cheer2: and the :angryfire and the :drama:

The Trotters sometimes get on my nerves, but then they make me :rofl:, and the Mean Girl Redhead is a bit much, and we all know that Kynt & Vyxsin are neither goths nor were ever "dating"... but those are small complaints.

All in all a pleasing casting job that went wrong with two glaring exceptions: the :blah: inclusion of Luke & Bob (they cannot be eliminated soon enough - geebus I hope it's QUICK!) ...

... and the dastardly snubbing of :mitchell: goddess Tina :glamor: & her old man Ken.

Can't wait for the new season to start! :cheer: I don't really hate any of these teams (though I'm "meh" on a couple) so it should be a good season.

I'm always excited for the amazing race, but it seems like so many of these racers are all from one season. Why not shake it up a bit?

TPTB claim that season 14 (the one with 5 teams from it) was a great season so I guess that's why its pretty much a redo of that one with a few other teams thrown in.

I went and looked that the break down:

Season 12
Ron & Christina, 2nd place
Kent & Vyxsin, 5th place

No one from season 13

Season 14
Jamie & Cara, 2nd place
Margie & Luke, 3rd place
Jen & LaKisha, 4th place
Mel & Mike, 6th place
Amanda & Kris, 8th place

Season 15
Herb & Nate, 4th place (damn ringing phones)
Zev & Justin, 9th (damn annoying passports)

Season 16
Jet & Cord, 2nd place

Season 17
Gary & Mallory, 6th place


So there are three runners up--Jet & Cord, Cara & Jamie and Ron & Christina, along with Margie & Luke's 3rd place. Will be interesting to see if any of these teams can join Eric as the only ones to run the race full around the world twice.

I can't think of Flight Time & Big Easy as "Herb & Nate". :lol:

Me neither but I just copied the list from the USA today story on past standings and forgot to change their names.

:yikes: Not Margie and Luke again. And blech to Gary and Mallory coming back. :scream:

Go Cowboys! Oh My Gravy rules! Would be fun to see them hanging out with Kynt & Vix. :lol:

I would have liked to see Toni & Dallas from #13 again but maybe they were asked but couldn't make #18. I am delighted to see the Cowboys, the Goths, Ron & Christina, Zev & Justin back. I don't know who I want to win.

Yay for Gary/Mallory, Ronald/Christina, Kisha/Jen and Mel/Mike.

No thanks to the cowboys and Jaime.

Are we having a contest this time? So I can fail at TAR predictions miserably like always. :D

Bumping this thread made me worried I missed it tonight. Even stupider I am watching cbs tonight.
