    Amazing Race 23 Pool

    It's time for another edition of the Amazing Race and once again time to test your skill at picking the couples that will last the longest in the competition! Instructions for registering for the pool are below.

    You can sign up early if you want to reserve your team name and have a pool avatar made ahead of time. You have until the deadline to make changes to your team so if you really like a team from their bio and want them on your team, only to find out they get eliminated on the first episode, you can replace them without penalty before the second episode airs.

    To sign up for the pool:

    1. Choose a team name.
    Use your forum name or come up with something creative.
    2. Choose one couple to be your team captains.
    This couple will earn double points for you.
    3. Choose three additional couples for your team.
    4. Choose one couple to be your reserve team.
    When you lose a couple in the race, your reserve team will come into play. If your reserve team gets eliminated before any other couple on your team, unfortunately you’re out of luck.

    You have until October 6th before the second episode airs to sign up for the pool. You may post your selections in this thread or send me your picks by private message.

    The couples you have to choose from are:

    Ally and Ashley
    Brandon and Adam
    Chester and Ephraim
    Hoskote and Naina
    Jason and Amy
    Leo and Jamal
    Nicky and Kim
    Rowan and Shane
    Tim and Danny
    Tim and Marie
    Travis and Nicole

    Here’s a sign-up list you can copy and paste to submit your choices.

    Team Name:
    Team Captains:
    Team Couple 1:
    Team Couple 2:
    Team Couple 3:
    Reserve Team:

    Points Schedule

    Teams will earn 5 points for each week they stay in the competition, plus points based on which order they get to the pit stop each episode.

    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.

    On episodes where the race is to be continued on the following episode, no points for pit stop order will be given but all teams will still receive their 5 points for staying in the race.

    I looked at the teams for this season, and it's just too hard to pick a team before episode 1. I have a few selections in mind, but I'll have to wait and see them in action.

    Re: Amazing Race 23 Pool

    I decided to do my picks by random draw. I've never been very good at picking teams for TAR because besides contestant skill factoring into their success in the game, there's also strategy and dumb luck. Other teams can gang up on a strong team and Yield them or they can end up getting injured or getting the taxi driver who doesn't know where they're going, getting the car that breaks down, etc.

    I'm not thrilled with my team picks but I don't know if I could do any better picking my team myself so I'll see how it goes!

    Team Name: Random Task
    Team Captains: Ally and Ashley
    Team Couple 1: Leo and Jamal
    Team Couple 2: Chester and Ephraim
    Team Couple 3: Nicky and Kim
    Reserve Team: Tim and Marie

    Re: Amazing Race 23 Pool

    So excited for the new season. Let's see if I can keep my pool "crown" from last year (highly unlikely, but I hope the Drifters will do me proud)!

    Team Name: Dixie Drifters
    Team Captains: Travis & Nicole (gotta love ER docs - my dh is a paramedic)
    Team Couple 1: Jason & Amy (Boston Strong)
    Team Couple 2: Tim & Marie (even though they are obnoxious)
    Team Couple 3: Ally & Ashley (Hockey!)
    Reserve Team: Leo & Jamal (even though their mugging and screaming is already driving me insane)

    Good luck everyone!
