    My biggest concern would be that it would all grow back in gray, as they have been increasing since my late 30s.


    LOL, that's why they have hair color! And the prize money would keep you out of the gray for a LONG time. =)

    The hair could go, no problem, mine's never been longer than shoulder length in my life, but I've long suspected i have a weird head (oddly bumpy, freckly, etc.)


    Well, Raquel Welch makes some beautiful wigs so that wouldn't phase me. And for the rest of the race, I'd buy a cap or a bandana and run with it.

    This is the first season I've watched TAR. Can a team go back and do the non-FF tasks if they end up disliking the FF they chose?


    I answered this in another post earlier in this thread. The answer is yes BUT they lose all the time it takes them to go to the FF and then go back to the original task point. So that team is very likely to get eliminated.

    just thought I'd mention that I asked my 16 year old son if he'd do it. He said no. This surprised me... his hair is semi long (and beautiful) but I didn't think he'd care. I asked him why... he said he wouldn't care about losing the hair, but didn't ever want to be mistaken for a skin head... that's something I hadn't thought of

    lol Cali, thats funny . Just a question ... do girls' or guy's hair grow faster? I wouldn't mind shaving because I think I would grow back my hair in 3-5 weeks.

    As you can see from my avatar, I'm already buzzed very close to bald, so I'd do it in a jiff. No problems here.

    Colin and Christie or bust!

    I think Chip and kim will go for this fast-forward. Chip's already bald and Kim will sigh might as well. Didn't they use up all their cash last episode? Besides, Kim will again feel guilt-ridden over the level of her contribution but I wonder if that warrants being willing to have all your hair removed.

    She can always cover up with a scarf or hat, though.

    I don't think it's a guy/girl thing. I think people's hair just grows at different speeds I also think it looks like it grows faster when it's very short because it's more noticeable.

    I don't think the Twins went for the FF. There were at the wall brick thing with Colin.

    The only team I can imagine going bold is Linda and Karen. I wouldn't want to imagine what other teams going bold will look like except Chip.
