    Brendon and Rachel because trainwreck screenwhores are a great kind of team to put my faith in. Also my name's Brendan. Brendon is the closest thing to that, however inferior of a spelling it completely and utterly is.

    Interesting selection criteria.


    Brenchel would have been my second pick - I don't particularly want to see any of the other teams, although a couple of them are all right.

    I pick John/Jessica again even though it didn't work out so well for me the first time maybe because they were mad that theyweren't my first choice. But they are this time so I hope they do better for me.


    I have a question amazing_race there is a category for finishing higher then previous. So how does that apply for the teams returning for a third time?

    That's a very good question.


    My initial idea is to go off their weaker performance - so for Margie & Luke we'd compare with 8th place, Jet & Cord with 6th place and Flight Time & Big Easy with 4th place.


    The only other thing is if you would prefer to average out their performances and go off that (M/L would be 5.5, J/C would be 4 and FT/BE would be 3).


    I'll go with the first option unless everyone thinks the latter is better. Let me know!
