    Re: Amazing Race 23 Pool

    Here goes nuthin',

    Team Name: Kanagawa Chillers
    Team Captains: Brandon and Adam
    Team Couple 1: Travis and Nicole
    Team Couple 2: Nicky and Kim
    Team Couple 3: Chester and Ephraim
    Reserve Team: Tim and Marie

    Ally and Ashley don't seem like real competitors to me. I can't say anything about Jason and Amy, except that I don't think dating couples benefit from the AR experience. I really liked Leo and Jamal, until one of them wrote in his bio that he runs a "reality" company where he sells homes. Little mistakes like spelling errors can cost you the race. I had high hopes for them, but they didn't finish the first leg where I expected them to. Rowan and Shane were an early favourite of mine, until I considered their age. They strike me as this season's Matthew and Daniel, whom I bet on and lost. Honourable mention goes to my fellow Oklahomans, but Tim and Danny finished in a terrible spot.
    This is not to say, of course that I am backing a winning selection here. Brandon and Adam interested me the most from the bios, but Team Chico really messed up their chances already. That's why they should be my reserve, but I still have faith in some people. Why shouldn't it be two random strangers on a reality show? Travis and Nicole are not my favourite team, but they seem like real competitors. That is, until their overcompetitive nature causes them to implode at about stage six or seven (I called it). Since we are (well, I am) comparing teams from season to season, I really hope Tim and Marie don't turn out like Max and Katie. Normally I would not select a team like this, but they showed a very interesting dynamic in their introduction. Nicky and Kim weren't on my draft list because they are married to pro athletes. I have a bias against rich people playing on the AR. But honestly, why should I hold their wealth against them? They seem genuine and really competitive, so I'm going to try and score a few points of off them. Chester and Ephraim were selected because they're pro athletes. Though this has been done before on the AR, I was very impressed with their attitude and competitiveness so far.
    What can I say about Hoskote and Naina? If they were still running in the race, my team selection might have been easier. Hoskote is also a bit older like Rowan and Shane, but he seems to be in better shape and mentally sharp (even though he didn't read the clue correctly). I felt that Naina being a fitness instructor would have made up for Hoskote's age. About that clue - it was very crafty of the AR producers to throw that little twist. I'm not sure, but I think the clue was worded correctly but vaguely. I don't think I heard anyone read it in a relaxed situation. If there's more of that this season, then the competitors (and the audience) will really have to be on their toes.

    Amazing Race 23
    Episode 2 Pool Results

    Welcome to the Amazing Race 23 pool! Each week, I’ll post the scores earned by each racing couple, the weekly scores earned by all pool teams, plus the overall scores. I’ll also post the scoresheet so you can see exactly how scores were earned.

    Racing couples will earn 5 points for each week in the race plus 5 points for each couple they beat to the pit stop.

    One change I made in scoring from last season is when couples are eliminated, they won’t continue to earn points, but they’ll act as placeholders in the order of finish so next week, the couple to come in first will still get 50 points even though there are only 9 teams left in the game. Last time, I felt that teams that lasted longer in the game were punished by getting diminishing points later in the season so I decided to try this method to equalize things. Hoskote and Naina are not included in the scoring because they were eliminated in the episode before the pool started.

    Contestant Finishing Order and Scores
    1. Chester and Ephraim: 50 points
    2. Leo and Jamal: 45 points
    3. Brandon and Adam: 40 points
    4. Travis and Nicole: 35 points
    5. Jason and Amy: 30 points
    6. Tim and Danny: 25 points
    7. Ally and Ashley: 20 points
    8. Tim and Marie: 15 points
    9. Nicky and Kim: 10 points
    10. Rowan and Shane: 5 points





    Weekly Scores
    Around the World in 29 Days/hmauterson: 105 points
    As the Crow Flies/inthegarden: 145 points
    Backpacks for the Win/TripleGemini: 165 points
    Blackbeard’s Revenge/Hyper: 175 points
    Boston Strong/Maybaybie: 165 points
    Buckeye Brawlers/BuckeyeGal: 165 points
    Clued In/Cootie: 170 points
    Dixie Drifters/dixielandbelle: 135 points
    Fanny’s Pack/Fanny Mare: 170 points
    Flying High/Photobabe: 180 points
    I Have to Eat What/tbamom: 175 points
    JohnnyK’s WAGs/JohnnyK: 80 points
    Just Observing/jafo: 165 points
    Kanagawa’s Chillers/Evande: 175 points
    Lost in Translation/mesachick: 180 points
    On the Road Again/Midol: 170 points
    Planes, Trains, and Stick-Shifts/Florimel: 120 points
    RacingDreamers/Jaceegirl: 165 points
    Racy Regrets/beerbelly: 140 points
    Random Task/pikachu: 145 points
    Team Leadfoot/scoot13: 210 points
    Team Maybs/r2maybs: 160 points
    Team Phileas Fogg/veejer: 155 points

    Overall Scores and Rankings
    1. Team Leadfoot: 210 points
    2. Flying High, Lost in Translation: 180 points
    3. Blackbeard’s Revenge, I Have to Eat What, Kanagawa’s Chillers: 175 points
    4. Clued In, Fanny’s Pack, On the Road Again: 170 points
    5. Backpacks for the Win, Boston Strong, Buckeye Brawlers, Just Observing, RacingDreamers: 165 points
    6. Team Maybs: 160 points
    7. Team Phileas Fogg: 155 points
    8. As the Crow Flies, Random Task: 145 points
    9. Racy Regrets: 140 points
    10. Dixie Drifters: 135 points
    11. Planes, Trains, and Stick-Shifts: 120 points
    12. Around the World in 29 Days: 105 points
    13. JohnnyK’s WAGs: 80 points

    Travis and Nicole were the most popular picks for team captains, with 8 of the pool teams choosing them. The next popular picks were Jason and Amy, Chester and Ephraim, and Brandon and Adam.

    Most popular regular couples were Travis and Nicole, appearing on all but two pool teams. Other popular couples were Tim and Marie and Chester and Ephraim.

    Leo and Jamal were the most popular picks for reserve couples, with 6 pool teams putting the Afghanimals on the bench to replace one of their other couples when they’re eliminated. Tim and Marie were also a popular pick for reserve couple.

    Team Leadfoot started the pool at the top of the leaderboard! They had 1st place finishers Chester and Ephraim as their team captains, the 2nd place team, the 4th place team, and the 5th place team. Their reserve team (although they didn’t earn any points since they’re not in play) came in 6th so they did an awesome job choosing their pool team!

    Three pool teams included Rowan and Shane, who were eliminated this episode, so we already have reserve couples coming into play. Clued In will be picking up Jason and Amy, JohnnyK’s WAGs will be adding Leo and Jamal, and Team Phileas Fogg will send in Brandon and Adam.
