    Creating the new thread as TAR24 has kicked off!



    Off to Guangzhou, China for Leg 1. Guangzhou is one Chinese city I wanted to see so I am really happy about that!

    The cast, according to RFF:


    Jet & Cord *shoots myself*


    Margie & Luke *shoots myself even more*


    Flight Time & Big Easy (Umm OK, I like them a lot but so many better teams to give a 3rd chance too...)


    Caroline & Jennifer (I LOVE IT!)


    Joey & Meghan (srsly -__________________________________-)


    Brendon & Rachel (I LOVE IT!)


    Leo & Jamal *shoots myself again*


    Natalie & Nadiya *shoots myself loudest of all*


    Dave & Connor (Likeable, and they deserve a second chance I believe.)


    Jessica & John (Gonna be interesting... I like them too. )


    But the most surprising casting move...



    Mark from Bopper & Mark on TAR20 teams up with TAR goddess Mallory Ervin to form a new team! Mark & Mallory! Love this team!!!

    What are your thoughts on the cast?


    Personally I'm VERY underwhelmed, but if we get some good early eliminations, it could play out nicely!

    First of all how certain is this cast because if yes not good.


    The cast, according to RFF:


    Jet & Cord No twice was two times to many


    Margie & Luke Twice was enough


    Flight Time & Big Easy Twice was enough


    Caroline & Jennifer OK I guess but there are more deserving teams


    Joey & Meghan NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Who do I have hunt down


    Brendon & Rachel Ok I guess but there are more deserving teams


    Leo & Jamal Don't like them but I reserve judgment for after the season


    Natalie & Nadiya Please tell me you're kidding


    Dave & Connor Yes Definitely


    Jessica & John Yes Definitely


    But the most surprising casting move...


    Mark from Bopper & Mark on TAR20 teams up with TAR goddess Mallory Ervin to form a new team! Mark & Mallory! How and why. What is there relationship?


    I agree with 2 and a half teams. Andy/Tommy and Abbie/Ryan should be brought back. So should James/Abba even though i'm not a fan. And I was really hoping for Trey/Lexi.


    So in short I am not happy if this is the cast.

    Ugh...


    They literally picked the worst teams ever. I wish they would pick some again from seasons 1-11 they were the best. I think it's too early for another all-stars because the last few seasons have had horrible teams (who get to compete again) I don't mind the three-timers, I just wish they were different.


    Jet&Cord - not bad but overrated


    Margie&Luke - liked them the first time, not the second time. Luke's deafness is going to come in handy with some of these teams.


    Flight Time and Big Easy - overrated but likable


    Caroline and Jennifer - boring, boring, boring and they didn't do anything to justify returning


    Joey and Meghan - ugh... annoying and again not justified in returning


    Brendan and Rachel - annoying but at least I can see why they were picked. (Do they work for CBS now? They are everywhere on that channel.)


    Leo and Jamal - I can see this one. I guess this means they didn't win this time around Natalie and Nadiya - annoying, but they raced well


    Dave and Connor - actually deserve a second chance


    Jessica and John - I was so happy when they were eliminated, why did they have to come back?


    Mark and Mallory - ugh. I don't mind Mallory but Mark? Ugh.


    And really China first? What's next India and Indonesia? I bet they're going to act like they've never been there before.


    Better teams that should have been picked since Unfinished business are: Nicole/Travis, Tim/Marie, Max/Katie, Mona/Beth, Jaymes/James, Trey/Lexi, Abbie/Ryan, James/Abba, Rachel/Dave, Art/JJ, Ernie/Cindy, Jeremy/Sandy, Andy/Tommy, Bill/Cathi.


    I'm still going to watch and probably love it.

    I have no idea what the Mark/Mallory relationship will be but should be interesting.


    I hope that Leo & Jamal's including means that they did not win TAR23.


    Abbie & Ryan are apparently not together anymore, otherwise they would've been a great choice. Same applies to Vanessa & Ralph.


    Bill & Cathi, Amani & Marcus, Nary & Jamie, Andy & Tommy, James & Abba, Trey & Lexi, Jaymes & James, Max & Katie, Chuck & Wynona, Tim & Marie and Travis & Nicole would have been great choices instead of many of those teams, although if either of the last two listed ended up winning TAR23, it would explain their absence.

    Apparently Natalie & Nadiya are first eliminated? COULD THIS BE TRUE? I COULD DIE OF HAPPINESS.


    Apparently Cowboys won Leg 1 and the two Express Passes, with Brenchel 2nd.

    So this is the official Cast?


    After fuming over it for a while and thinking it over I decided that the cast isn't horrible. Not as good as it could have been but fine.


    Love: NA
    Like: Brandon/Rachel, John/Jessica, Dave/Connor, Mark/Mallory, Caroline/Jennifer
    Neutral: Flight Time/Big Easy
    Dislike: Jet/Cord, Margie/Luke
    Hate: Natalie/Nadiya, Joey/Meghan, Leo/Jamal


    And if That is the reason Tim/Marie aren't here i'm Happy.


    And if that is the first team out I'm really happy and if Joey/Megan are second out it could be a great season.

    I'd be surprised if Natalie/Nadiya are out first because they were decent racers way better than Joey/Meghan. It could be a weird double first leg like Unfinished business.

    I don't mind the three timers. I just wish they had older teams from the beginning seasons. Also does anyone know where the spoiler-free timeline is on that forum. I don't want to know the tasks or who gets eliminated. I just want to know the route visited. I thought there used to be one on RFF but I can't find it.

    I'm fine with three-peaters but why were Charla & Mirna not cast? Why were Dustin & Kandice not cast? Why were Oswald & Danny not cast? Literally why was no team from TAR11 cast, and we get awful teams coming from TAR18.


    I would've loved to see Jaime & Cara - and at least that one would make sense to even out the gender ratio on this season...

    So apparently Natalie & Nadiya, Mark & Mallory and Joey & Meghan are supposedly the first three boots in that order. Two are great news, but I'm devastated for Mark & Mallory.


    Apparently it's 2 legs China, 2 Malaysia and then Sri Lanka but unsure after that. Teams were sighted in Rome for what is assumably Leg 7 - Dave & Connor, Caroline & Jennifer, Leo & Jamal, Jet & Dave, Flight Time & Big Easy and a male/female team believed to be Jessica & John were sighted. This could be the Final Six? Or possibly there was another NEL somewhere and either Brendon & Rachel or Margie & Luke is still around. I hope the latter is gone.


    Also there is a picture on RFF of a Speed Bump board in Italy with Caroline & Jennifer's picture on it, meaning that the leg vbefore Rome - wherever it was - was a NEL with CaroJen coming last. Thank god they survived!

    It appears to me that the legs in Malaysia were either a double leg or one NEL and one elimination. And then either Brendan/Rachel or Margie/Luke fell way behind after the NEL that the country singers got.

    There were a lot of legs in Southeast Asia. Probably more now.

    As far as Mark and Mallory, I would have rather seen Bopper and Mark. The "twinnies" were annoying the first time, as well as Joey and Megan. Brenden and Rachel didn't do anything notable to return. Some other teams that deserved to come back were Mark and Abba, Trey and Lexie, Nary and Jamie and Andy and Tommy. I would like to see Eric and Lisa from season 15 to be able to return sometime, since they didn't really even have a chance to race. But, the teams could have been worse. Thank God, no Rob and Amber.
