    I don't remember ever doing that for the Amazing Race. I did try it in the Dancing With the Stars pool one or maybe two seasons. I'm not planning on doing it for this pool.

    This is the last week to make changes to your pool team before the next episode! I hadn't submitted my own team yet because I wanted to watch the first episode bot now I have the difficult task of chosing my racers. I'm not going to do a random draw again. I'll take my chances on picking my own team.

    Good luck, everyone! I'm working on the scoresheet now so we'll be ready to have our first pool results next week.

    Re: Amazing Race 24 Pool

    I think I have my team ready. I might change my team name or landmark before the deadline but I think this will be it.

    My strategy was to choose the couples I liked the most/hated the least, because truthfully there were a lot of all-stars teams I didn't care for.

    Team Name: Come Sail Away
    Team Captains: Dave & Conner
    Team Couple 1: Jet & Cord
    Team Couple 2: Flight Time & Big Easy
    Team Couple 3: Brendon & Rachel
    Reserve Team: Leo & Jamal
    World Landmark: Beijing National Aquatics Center (Water Cube)

    Re: Amazing Race 24 Pool

    Team Name: Across the Ocean
    Team Captains: Dave & Connor
    Team Couple 1: Jet & Cord
    Team Couple 2: Leo & Jamal
    Team Couple 3: Flight Time & Big Easy
    Reserve Team: Mark & Mallory
    World Landmark: What's this for? Uhm... the Pyramids?

    For every couple a team beats to the pit stop, they'll earn 5 points. So if 4 teams come in after a couple, they'll earn 20 points. The team that comes in last gets no points.
    Weren't you discussing last pool that you were considering the winning team to score 50 points, and then 5 points less per entry, so the scores weren't as locked down during the first half of the season? Did you drop that idea?

    Thels: It's the same thing. I'll include the eliminated teams when figuring up the 5 points (except for the twins, since they got eliminated before the first week of the pool began). So since there are 10 teams that will be running next week, the team that comes in first will get 45 points and the team that comes in last will get 0 points. The following week, the lowest scoring team will get 5 points, etc.

    Ah ok. Thanks for clarifying that. Since your rule specifically states 5 points for every other team that comes in, it didn't seem like it included eliminated players. Thanks for clearing it up.
