Teams Announced and Official Website up for The Amazing Race

The official CBS website is up for The Amazing Race! The season starts on Sunday, February 14 (aw, Valentine's Day) at 8 PM ET/PT. Between now and then, I'll delve into my opinions of each team from the bios. But I wanted to get this news out to you tonight. Yes, Jeff and Jordan from Big Brother 11 are on the show. Here are a few of the short videos from the CBS site:









Margo already has the start of the blog pool (which I'm including in the comments area) -- everyone is welcome to join. The big prize is bragging rights if your team wins. You can't beat that with a stick!

Count me in the pool!

joy n said...

Margo, sign me up, please. I am so looking forward to TAR and Survivor, the elite of the reality genre. Always so exciting to watch.

I am hoping that Jordan and Jeff do well.

RJM in SC said...

Gee, I hated how Jordan wouldn't even look at Jeff but he keep looking at her when he was talking. Hope this works out for them

joy n said...

I believe Caite Upton is the Miss Teen USA who was asked that famous question, "Why is it that 1/5 of Americans cannot find the U.S. on a world map?", and she gave that very weird reply that made her famous on U-Tube.

Jackie said...

Right, Joy. She responded that many people don't own maps (paraphrased). That's her!

SueGee said...

Margo -

Count me in on the TAR pool too!

SueGee

joy n said...

My goodness, Caite ought to be very interesting this season going around the world.

meb said...

Looking forward to the race...Thanks Jackie for posting the videos... I enjoyed watching Jeff and Jordon. Jordon is going in negatively, as to their relationship and how they'll probably fight, so like Jeff said, you have what you say.

Still excited to watch them all.

Nana from the NW said...

Thanks Jackie for the clips and Margo for doing the pool. I'm excited for both TAR and Survivor to start!!

Sydney said...

Veddy Interestink, Jordan and Jeff. I am so pumped for both Survivor and TAR to happen again so quicky. It used to feel like we had nothing going on here for weeks between those show's seasons and this year it flew by. Maybe because there's been enough overlap with Cable, like Dexter and Nip Tuck (SOB, last ep for that SHOW, not the season, this week!!!). I also don't remember the Bach starting this early.

Sydney said...

Oh, where are my manners?! I should have said THANK YOU JACKIE AND MARGO at the get go! Pardon moi.

meb said...

RJM IN SC... I think Jordon wouldn't look at Jeff because she was straight on to the camera and he was sort of off to the back of her. Unless she turned totally sideways, she wouldn't be able to see him... plus it would probably have given us her bad side. LOL

She acted like she wasn't all that happy to be there with him. Wonder if things haven't been going so well with THEM as a couple???

It's still going to be a pretty good season I think and I'm glad it's starting soon... we need some stuff to blog about... right Jackie?? In addition to your OT posts I mean. Love them too!!!
Whew, almost got myself in trouble there!

RJM in SC said...

count me in the pool too. thanks for all you do for us Jackie and thanks to all my Blog family for always being here.

Lisanne said...

Yay! Can't wait for the new season. Sign me up please Margo.

Off topic I know, but is there also a pool for the new Survivor?

I wonder if Russell will seem so evil next to all those other "evil" ones.

ML said...

Margo please add me to the pool!

Rochelle said...

Lisanne, I think there WILL be a pool for Survivor, but I don't think there IS one yet... good thinking though, as it is coming on air very soon. I would like to jump in that pool as well.

RJM in SC --that was such a nice comment you put up... it is nice to have a blog family isn't it? Everyone here has been so great!

Zoetawny!!!! just shouting out in case you're reading.

Sally said...

Please add me to the pool, Margo. It could be fun watching Caite Upton trying to navigate foreign lands--she might be able to get completely lost in an English-speaking country.

Margo said...

Sally do you want to do survivor also? I have you in TAR pool.

Margo

Merrilee said...

Hi Margo

Add me into the pool please!
Thanks

Merrilee said...

Margo,
I didn't read down far enough

add me into the survior pool too, pretty please!

Merrilee

Margo said...

Merrilee - I've got you in both

Margo

RBennie said...

I can't wait for TAR to start! Really curious to see how well Jordon and Jeff do.

Sally said...

Margo, Yes, please sign me up for the Suvivor pool too. I haven't watched many seaasons, so a lot of the contestants will be brand new to me. But I watched several episodes last season and followed the rest here at Jackie's, so I think I'll be watching this time around.
