    The cast of the new season of TAR is out:

    http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/cast/

    I guess since Hockey players won last season, they had to go with NFL players, baseball wives and hockey cheerleaders!

    First episode is Sunday, September 29th. Just hope the delays this year aren't too bad but they always are during football season.

    :cheer2: :cheer: Woohooo!!! I can never pick from just the write ups who I want to root for (never would have guess I would have loved the Kentucky Boys and would cry my eyes out when they almost got eliminated, then NEL saved them!) and it usually takes me a few episodes before I get my favorites. I'll probably have a Team I Hate/Can't Stand by the end of the first episode though. :lol:

    I like to pre-hate any team with a relationship of "dating".

    Um. Nicky Getz? While your husband was on his rehab assignment in my town? He, um, got around. A lot.

    To be fair to them, they aren't cheerleaders. The LA Kings Ice Crew clean the ice during games and make upwards of 400 appearances a year on behalf of the team and their foundation. Yes, they are really hot, but they don't dance and they don't use pom poms, they actually do something useful for the team. :)

    I never can tell who my favorites will be beforehand or who I will dislike (except for Rachel & Brandon. That was a no brainer.) I miss our contest almost as much as I miss AR when it is off the air.

    Agreed, although I"m highly suspecting Tim and Marie won't be on my faves list.

    As long as we're covering various sports, this show needs some figure skaters :mitchell:

    Evan and Johnny would make an interesting team. Their "people" need to get on that. :rofl:

    At least two teams of figure skaters tried out for Amazing Race Canada this year but neither of them were selected to participate :(

    Good for Jen, I was so happy with her and Kisha's win in Unfinished Business. Although I find the cake ironic considering that in their first season, they were eliminated due to... natural bodily functions...

    Anywhoozle..

    YAY TAR TOMORROW. WOO!

    um, this does not bode well for the OK boys. :lol: LAX is pretty hard to miss. What's the story with the Duck Dynasty duo.

    And, PML. Steve Martin's wild and crazy guys have been resurrected in the Afganimals. Maybe they'll fall off a mountain.

    ER doctors are so fast, but oops on their mistake.

    Oh, wow. I wonder if it would be faster to go back and run. Probably, if it's just a 30 minutes penalty.

    There were some stupid mistakes (losing the airport, letting the taxi go, pissing off a sea lion), but the ER docs win the stupid prize. And lose the express pass in the process.

    They're good at falling into the boat! :lol:

    Team Beard seemed to be giving up for a bit. I hope they and the OK boys can avoid elimination.

    Well I hate the beyotch with the pink hair already. So of course they get the Express Pass and control who gets the second one.

    I actually missed the error the Docs made too. I usually pick up on those quickly when they mess up the clues. Just so I can yell at my TV "how many times do we have to go over it .... read.the.clue!". :lol: I did pick up the people doing the boats wrong.

    No way I can tell the teams apart yet. Don't have any favorites yet but I can see myself hating the MLB wives though, and definitely hate Pink Hair.

    The docs weren't the only team with "reading" difficulties.

    I'm afraid that the eliminated daughter will continue to have difficulty with her "controlling" father!

    I can honestly say last night's episode was my least favorite premiere episode ever. Maybe I'm getting tired of the show or the show is getting tired, not sure which. Not sure if I'm going to stick out the season as there are other things to watch on Sunday night. I'll give it a couple more episodes to see if things improve for me.

    Just listen for the Zither of Doom. It will clue you in to mistakes every time!

    I think some of the teams are trying too hard to have a "personna". I think the exes' hate is all an act, and the Afghanimals need to calm the hell down. I didn't hate the Baseball Wives like I thought I would, and I kind of like the Ice Girls. Personally, I'm rooting for the Beardly Duo.
