The Amazing Race - General Discussion
[QUOTE=molds13;290302]Sad news: [url=http://www.realityblurred.com/realitytv/archives/the_amazing_race/2011_Dec_10_nancy-hoyt-dead]Amazing Race's Nancy Hoyt has died + reality blurred[/url][/QUOTE] That's very sad. They were one of my favorite teams that season.
Not sure how many people we have here from other countries, but has anyone ever seen another country's version of TAR? I actually just started watching the first season of TAR Australia and am really surprised at how many likable teams they have. Usually with the US version I find myself rooting for one or two teams; with TAR Australia I think it's the complete opposite and I find myself not liking two teams and cheering for the rest. It's also shot in HD, which is a huge plus.
I watched the whole first season of TAR Aussie and I really enjoyed it. Like you said, a lot of the teams are very likable but I think as the season goes on you'll find those that you want to win way more than others.

This is a first. You're right, I do have a preferred pecking order and there are some I want to win more than others, but each team has likable qualities about them. The team that just got eliminated was probably my least favorite one left.
Yeah true. It's a good season. I'm excited for the new season to come out.
[QUOTE=joshboxx;290913]Yeah true. It's a good season. I'm excited for the new season to come out.[/QUOTE] I thought it was a great season! Much better than any of the recent US seasons. I was happy with the top 4 as well as the order they finished. Glad to see the new season is filming now.
Does anyone know anything about The Amazing Race casting process? I know that we had someone who broke down the process for The Real World because they had gone through it themselves and made it deep into it. Any luck someone went through TAR casting??

If they still like you, they fly you out to LA for a semifinal interview. And if they still like you, you get a final interview.

[QUOTE=salt&vinegar;291716]Obviously the crossovers don't have to apply, but I woder if they have to go through all the interviews or if they just get to skip to the last one.[/QUOTE] For "crossovers" it is simply CBS telling you that they want you and then having the casting people ensure they have all the info they need from you and telling you what the other cast members have learned about the show during the normal casting process.

I like every single team except for the married bikers and the brother and sister couple that got eliminated first. As crazy as it may seem, I was actually sad when the Big W coworkers got eliminated. I thought they were going to get on my nerves. However, their stint on the show was pure hilarity. Also, does anyone else think that Renae look like Jacinda from RW:London?
I have to admit that the last season of the amazing race got me back to loving the show again after I kinda stopped following after season 21. I wish they had waited one more season for all stars. The final 5 teams would have been a lot better choices than some of the teams that they chose like Jessica and John and Globetrotters. I can't wait til the new season. In the meantime, I'm currently watching The Amazing Race Asia to fulfill my craving for the show. Lol
Last season was great, fresh locations like Morocco & Malta, a great cast and a super surprising ending nobody saw coming. I'm still shocked that the candy girls won. I wish Adam & Bethany won but at least the dentists didn't. This season seems interesting because people don't know the partner for the first time ever. That makes it much harder.
I'm hoping and praying that CBS gives Hayden & Nicole the Big Brother couple love and they come on Amazing Race. The cuteness and hilarity with those two is so fun to watch.

Are they still together?
Yep! Very much so. All they post on both their IG's are adorable pictures of themselves together.

  Please no.
Would they let Hayden be on three different shows? I feel like they wouldn't want that for some reason
Not Hayden Moss. Hayden Voss and Nicole from last season.
WHich don't you like? Or both? lol They are obviously much more bearable than Brenden and Rachel.

Oh I don't watch big brother so I just assumed lol. Wait seriously both Hayden's last names are just a letter off? That's so weird lol.
Yes, pretty ironic. 
I caught the tail end of a clip about the new season. Anyone know when it starts? Is their a cast list yet?
Nevermind. Just googled. Duh.
I don't like the cast list to many cheerleaders and TV personalities. Almost half the cast is I feel like. 
Tanner Kloven and Josh Ahern could honestly both get it.  Rooting for them, and Jazmine & Danielle
Yeah, none of the couples stand out to me at the moment as someone I'd be interested in. And agreed I'm over former NFL cheerleaders all the time.

yeah. I wonder how the engagement team will do.
I hope the cast is as good as the 25th season. Season 25 got me back into the show then they killed it for me again when they did the blind date twist. That concept was dumb and everyone was just blah.

yeah I loved season 25 especially since the scientists win. Nobody expected that. There really wasn't a forerunner the whole season it was pretty even.
