    TAR 17 - New Cast Up

    I can't believe TAR finally got beat for reality show Emmy! I only wish Phil could get nominated for host award. Anyway, the new cast is up. Seems like a pretty interesting group, judging from the pictures/bios. Do they even do an official announcement of this anymore?

    Andie/Jenna: Birth mother/birth daughter
    Brook/Claire: Best Friends/HSN co-hosts
    Chad/Stephanie: Dating
    Connor/Jonathan: Best Friends
    Gary/Mallory: Father/Daughter
    Jill/Thomas: Dating
    Katie/Rachel: Friends/Beach Volleyball Players
    Michael/Kevin: Father/Son
    Nat/Kat: Friends
    Nick/Vicki: Dating
    Ron/Tony: Best Friends

    I can't believe TAR got beat, either.

    This has got to be my absolute favorite reality show. It's the only one I'd ever consider going on.

    THat birth mother and birth daughter couple should be real interesting, I think.

    Woohoo, I love long premieres!

    I was so flabbergasted when I saw Kevjumba and his dad as part of this cast. I'm not a fan per se, but I have watched a couple of his videos featuring his dad, and they're actually pretty funny.

    The most interesting relationship on paper, however, is Andie and Jenna. I'm excited to see how they play out as a team. Apparently the race is only the 3rd time they've seen each other face to face.

    I'm a sucker for happy endings. I think I found the team I'm rooting for.

    No token "old" couple
    Seems like a very fit casting this season.

    No married couples either. I think that's a first.

    I really hope TAR does not start casting only models, etc. I like the ordinary people on it.

    I'd consider it, but I wouldn't get very far. Anyone I could think of doing it with would probably be at each other's throats before we left the US. I can't drive stick shift, don't eat animal products, and am scared of heights. So not a good fit for me But I'd sure love to travel around the world for free.

    I remember when TAR's existance depended on winning that first crucial Emmy, or else it was getting axed. I think it was time for another show to take it, but glad it's had a nice long run, both on TV and with the awards.

    This looks like a pretty neat cast, but am surprised by all the dating/friend couples. Andie/Jenna I'll be curious to see how it plays out.

    Me too. It seems like a pretty good cast, but I'm disappointed that the casting includes a good number of semi-famous people (Kevjumba, the pageant girls, HSN hosts, etc.).

    But even with the lack of married couples and "older" couples, this cast seems like they'll be an entertaining bunch, so I'm optimistic about this season.
