The Amazing Race Starts TONIGHT - Casting and STUFF

It sounds like we're in for quite an amazing season this season on The Amazing Race! The website on has the first seven minutes of the show online. Even after watching that, we're not sure of who teams up with whom. The majority of the cast seem quite strong. But we have some variations between the strengths. The bios online at the website delve into each racer. However, an awful lot is going to hinge on the partners.

Of course, a blog party with live blogging of the episode will happen tonight. I hope to see many of you there! As for the blog pool? I'd like you to all welcome this season's pool lifeguard -- Sharon C.! We should be finding out the teams tonight. Tomorrow night (Friday), I will put up a list of the teams in a blog pool sign up post with a cut-off a few days before next week's episode. We usually don't do one until after the first team is eliminated. This season we don't even know the teams yet!

This should be a fun twist! It also opens them up to take applications for those who don't have a travelling partner.

If I had known they would take singles, I would have appied. I want to travel the world on someone elses dime. lol

These are probably people who applied for something else, like BB, and when contacted said they did not have anyone who they could race with. So someone got the idea of throwing a bunch of strangers into pairs and see what happens.

I applied to one of these shows many years ago, don't even remember which one, think it was survivor, and got a call while I was at work and the message said something about having a partner. I tried to call the number left but got no answer so that was the end of that. It was probably for TAR, they didn't say. Missed opportunity.

I want to join the pool for winners.

So, the pool doesn't start until after tonight? Thank you, Sharon for being the lifeguard!

This ought to be really interesting.
