    My List

    Well obviously, everyone loved the ATC's! Who doesn't love witty commentary? I was sure bummed when they were philiminated.

    But upon thinking back, these would be my candidates for 2nd chance leg.

    Season 1:

    David & Margaretta, they were one of the cutest older couples I've ever seen, despite the odds, I so wanted them to do well.
    Kevin & Drew, Are there people that DIDN"T like them??

    Season 2:

    Gary & Dave, hehe... I heart geeks
    Peggy & Clair, perhaps I just have a soft spot for sweet elderly people
    Oswald & Danny, My favorite TAR gay men. Nobody has yet to bond with locals with such finesse. Apparently, TAR 5 teams should study them.

    Season 3:

    Dennis & Andrew, Philiminated way too soon! They cracked me up.
    Aaron & Arianne, I was sad to see them go. They were truly dedicated to the honorable quest to philiminate the twins.

    Season 4:

    Dave & Steve, I'd be a fool not to say them.
    Jon & Al, I"m still weeping they didn't make the final 3.
    Monica & Sheree, They are the first all female team I was really rooting for. I just liked them.

    Maybe, that could be the twist the audience could vote for the returning teams? lol, I know will never happen.

    Anyway, the trip down memory lane was fun. Who would you guys liked to have had another shot at the prize?

    The Jon/Al elimination story is even worse when you know what really caused them to get eliminated - a faulty credit card reader.

    But I guess that the reason they don't allow teams back in is because we all have teams we would have liked to have seen do better, and unfortunately there can only be one winner.

    The only thing I can come up with is the fact that they'll have something in addition to Roadblocks and Fast Forwards. Like, maybe a "Dead End", where you have to backtrack and start over from the beginning of the leg. They could mix them in with the Route Info clues so that teams could get them randomly to make it fair. They say that the race is entirely based on luck, and with the "Dead End" option, it'll make things interesting.

    Though...I might be the only one who agrees.

    The couples will always know the person they're paired with. It's an integral part of the race, that "two people with a previous relationship run the race around the world." What fun is it watching people who don't know each other break down and fight? It's much more exciting watching engaged couples, brothers and sisters, fathers and sons duke it out each week.
    All star edition I'd watch for any show. But a celebrity version? Heck no. The last thing TAR needs to do is turn into another Celebrity Mole. I could only stand about 3 episodes of that. Maybe if Anderson Cooper were there, I'd have felt different.
    While I enjoy watching 12 new teams race around the world and have the experience for the first time, I wouldn't mind seeing past teams come back. I think we'd still see fights among teams (you think Tara and Wil would come back for a second go around and not fight?) And considering there being given a second chance, there might be a lot more fighting amongst teams than before. The only thing I wouldn't like is the fact that all of the teams know each other or have seen each other and most have become friends, even with teams that weren't on there season. You wouldn't have the same interaction there, and might find everyone in some big love fest not caring who wins or not.

    A faulty credit card reader? Hmmm... I've never heard of that before... but well, it's such a pity.
