    Re: Amazing Race Pool

    Here's my team for night one. Have fun, everyone.

    Team Name: Grokking the World

    Jaymes/James (team captains) (just for fun).
    James/Abba (they seem capable and fun although I rare select men whose hair is longer than mine)
    Amy/Daniel (I admire them and hope they do well)
    Caitlin/Brittany (because I don't think anyone else will choose them)

    Oh and Dating Divorcees are a big no no in my books after last year's team

    Rock and Roll boys James and Mark
    ECE and Medical Sales girls Caitlyn and Brittany (I am an ECE, too so for the solidarity) I hope she doesn't prove annoying Captains
    Monster truck couple Rob and Kelley
    Substitute teachers Gary and Will did not like them as much as I had hoped to

    We will be called REMS
    I was a bit surprised by how much I liked the young Texas couple. Did not like the divorcees who came in first. Don't steal first from a double amputee and then keep repeating that she's such a threat.
    Unable to edit to add names so here goes
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    I think I want to make one change. After seeing the first show, I'm going to replace Jaymes/James with Abbie/Ryan. I'll probably regret it because I think the Chippendales are going to get better, but I had debated between them and Abbie/Ryan before making my initial choices, and I like Abbie/Ryan so far. What's really difficult is to pick my team captains. But since I must choose 1, my new team will be

    Grokking the World

    Caitlin/Brittany (Team Captiains) (I think they are athletic and smarter than would be imagined
    James/Abba (they seem capabile and fun although I rarely slect men whose hair is longer than mine)
    Amy/Daniel (I admire them and hoe they do well
    Abbie/Ryan (I like them)

    One question, pikachu. If your team captains gets eliminated, can you promote one of your other three couples to that position?

    Thanks. Your games are great fun. They actally have me watching more of these reality shows than usual.

    Re: Amazing Race Pool

    JohnnyK: You still have time to rearrange your teams. Your final team lineup must be in by this coming Saturday.

    Florimel: In my pools, I usually have a point midway through the season where you can add/drop a team and promote/demote team captains. I've been considering letting you do each once anytime during the season. I was going to start it with the Project Runway All-Stars 2 pool but since The Amazing Race has just barely started off, we can do it for this pool.

    HOW TEAM CHANGES WILL WORK

    To borrow terminology from Who Wants to be a Millionaire, you will be given 2 lifelines in the game. With Lifeline #1, you can add any team to your lineup. You can only have a total of four teams, though, so if you already have four teams, you'll have to drop one to use this lifeline.

    With Lifeline #2, you can make any of your existing teams your captains. If you still have your original team captains in place, they will be demoted down to a regular team and the team you designate will become your team captains.

    The only way you can make a team not in your lineup your new team captains is to use both lifelines at once. Think very carefully strategy-wise before doing this.

    It's up to you how early or how late in the season you want to use your lifelines.
    Current Pools: Face Off 7, Project Runway 13
    New Pools: DWTS 19, Registration deadline: September 22nd, Survivor 29, Registration deadline: October 1st,
    Amazing Race 25, Registration deadline: October 3rd
