    New Amazing Race Cast Announced!

    http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race/

    Some interesting teams, particularly the very first one listed.. biological parent/child team that met just before the race began! Looks like they're pushing for an all-female team to win, with 4 F/F teams. And a few candidates who will be fighting for this season's "McBickerson" title. T'will be a fun season, I'm hoping!

    Season premieres September 26 @ 8:30pm (special 90-minute episode)!

    I look forward to many ultra-exciting "share your feelings to receive your next clue" challenges!

    But, seriously, TAR's Emmy streak finally ended (and just in time, IMO, as the category might have been auffed, ala Olympics softball, with much more TAR domination) ...

    ... so why not end the No Girl-Girl winners streak, too? Hopefully I'll find one of the girl-girl pairs rootable. (Do Jet and Cord have any equally awesome sisters?)

    Yay, I was also wondering when the season would start. I can't wait.

    Okay, I was all excited, but then got distracted by CBS' web site, which made me want my own Amazing Race floor mat, and an NCIS farting hippo. And a gnome!

    A cool video clip to get you into the TAR mood.

    It spoils only a challenge (presumably first episode) and the identity of one team. (Just to be safe, I skipped reading the viewer comments ... lest anyone blurted out real or fake spoiler information.)

    So, Beefy, are you setting up the game this season?

    ^ Yes. Classic style. (Pick 'Em, Rank 'Em, and one extra credit - a yes or no question.)

    I'll post the rules and such before the first episode, with an entry deadline before the start of episode #2, and then the fun bloodletting will begin.

    I've read between the lines and am that you've expressed your intent to enter the FSU predictions contest.

    You know you want to ... nothing compares to the glory of the faceless fans rooting you onward to predestined victory.

    OK, please explan the contest for the newbie here. I've loved AR since the very first episode and always wished that I could get one of my brothers or my kids to go on with me and see the world doing all those crazy things. Too bad my health has been such an issue the last few years where I couldn't even imagine applying for it! But it is a lot of fun to watch and wonder if I could really attempt some of the stunts that they have to do or eat some of those disgusting things I've seen them eat!!!

    Yay a new TAR freak!!! Welcome.

    I'd LOVE to be a TAR contestant, but there's no one in this world I know who is crazy enough to do it, and even crazier to do it with me. I'll do everything height and water related, just don't make me eat anything (except the two foot Polish sausage, that one I can handle). Edit: oh no that last sentence sound so wrong . That's not what I mean I swear

    So, who thinks can challenge me this time? Last time I tied for first. TIED!!! Oh no no, after winning silver three times being tied for gold doesn't feel that great. Whoever said that I'm the Surya Bonaly / Sasha Cohen of the TAR contest was right.

    OMG one week for it to start
    (runs to check out the team profiles).

    I'm excited. I'm really intrigued by the bio mom/daughter team.

    snark: A former high school classmate is going to be on the Latin American version of this show (which airs through the Discovery Channel). Jealousy, thy name is oleada

    If I were on TAR, I'd try to drop out so I could hang out with Phil while the rest of the group were running around like idiots doing stupid stuff.

    Someone please tell me or send the link to previous TAR's contest here?? I've loved the show from the very first episode. I'd also love to see a shorter version of the previous winners against one another.

    I've got the TiVO all set to record every new episode. I agree that Phil is the glue that holds the whole thing together.

    So, please help me figure out this game/contest here at FSU!! I am so ready for Sunday night to get here!!
