    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:

    http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20458783,00.html


    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 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.

    Usually beefy is nice and lets us watch the first week to get to know them, but this time we know all the racers, so hopefully he shows up with his game soon.

    I almost didn't suck last time. It's the only FSU game I'm almost not bad at playing.

    Ah, the people have spoken. I'll run a new installation of Suicide TAR.

    I've just returned from my Big Gay Cruise (9 days counting cross-country air travel and a first day in Ft L), and am buried in recovery endeavors (and Valentine's Day evening debauchery planning)

    ... and then the first (hellish I'm sure) day back at the office will be tomorrow. Ergo, don't look for the Suicide TAR posting until Wednesday.

    But be on your toes! Since we already know all of these racers, there will be no "assessing the prospects" grace week. You'll need to provide your entry by airtime this Sunday.

    Oh Oh, no grace period for the contest. I need to do my homework! In case anyone else needs a picture to help them remember who is who this is the link to the CBS cast list. (I hope this works)

    Not that I hate the suicide game but I don't know if I'll be able to think quick week after week. My brain is too flooded with everything right now (you know, the typical: school, life, stupid men who are off limits but yet still play mental games...ok I'm snarking, so I'll stop).

    As it's tradition, my first pick will be the team that annoys the living daylights out of me (because you KNOW that they'll stick around for a long time), but there's a problem....I don't know who that is! Oh well, I have a few days to pick one.

    you only claimed last place in the last game because I forgot to enter.

    I'm gonna give y'all a grace week, after all. Too tarred to jump right into this (Valentine's evening debauchery planning was time well spent, and now it's work that's rocking my foundation :shuffle:); so, I'll post the Suicide TAR thread on Saturday, most likely, with a deadline of pre-2nd episode.
