    I agree. The Chips would have been a great pick. James/Abba as well.

    You know who I really want to see back?

    Bill/Cathi. They were the old couple from Andy/Tommy's first season.

    Too many male teams. They could be a nice pick.

    I adored the Chips. Would have loved to see them back.

    The reason many don't like the twins is how they took James/Abba's money when it was left lying at a travel agency or something similar. They knew whose money it was, but took it anyway and laughed about it. Some saw it as good game play to capitalize on someone else's mistake. Others saw it as unnecessary and cruel to essentially steal from another team, but even worse to think it was hilarious to do so. Just annoying, IMO.

    I had forgotten that the snowboarders were religious. Normally, I dislike the people who shove religion into our faces but I can't really remember them doing so outside of the scene you mentioned, JK. I seem to remember them having fun, which is what I like in teams.

    I am pretty surprised to see Brendon/Rachel on the list as well as the Cowboys.

    Oh my gosh, I can't believe I forgot about that. Those girls are the most despicable contestants I have ever seen on this show. Not only did they laugh about taking the money, but they split it with another team who was right there watching them steal it. And I remember somebody saying when the episode aired that one of the twins tried to justify their behavior on Twitter. I wonder if any of the other teams saw that season and how they'll react to the twins.

    They didn't "shove it anybody's face". After they completed a challege at a Buddhist Temple, they just calmly told the camera that they didn't agree with that religion. They never insulted a native and they completed the challenge without incident. Overall, they were great contestants, always cheerful and enjoying the race. They were also good racers. I vaguely remember there was one challenge where they and one other team were the only ones to read the clue correctly.


    I am pretty surprised to see Brendon/Rachel on the list as well as the Cowboys.

    Seriously? The whiny, obnoxious BB couple? Good grief, during their season it got so bad that I just turned down the volume whenever they appeared.


    Click to see Spoiler:
    Are Tim and Marie the same as Pinky and the Brain? I can't stand them, either. Hopefully they and BB will put their claws into each other while everybody else races. Also, if Pinky is on the All-Stars, does that mean that they wiped out on this current season? Please, please let that be so!



    Great to see the Cowboy's back! Those other teams totally cheated on their last season, so I hope the Cowboys kick some serious butt this time.


    And great to see Mark and Bopper! No, they weren't the greatest of racers, but they were so sweet I don't care.

    I'm pleased I wasn't the only one who remember the twins theft of money from another pair. I hadn't liked them before that incident, but afterwards, I thought they were despicable.

    I've also seen way more than enough of Brendan and Rachel to last me a lifetime or two.

    I didn't think the snowboarders were in your face about their religion either. In fact, aside from that scene and a couple others where they mentioned how their faith is important to them, I don't really remember it being an issue. I do remember them enjoying themselves a lot and running a good clean race. Hopefully I'm remembering right!

    The twins' theft of the money was that much more despicable when contrasted with James/Abba's story of the sick dad (can't remember which one). The twins were juvenile and annoying, and I'm not interested in seeing them back or giving them any more air time to act like idiots.

    I really really really have had enough of Brenchal

    OTOH at the opposite end of the spectrum, the Cowboys have been my favourites -out off all the seasons

    Yeah. Well, my opinion on the snowboarders will stand for now.

    But I'm used to being in the minority anyway. Maybe because I don't have a heart.

    Oh that reminds me. For me, OSWALD AND DANNY!!

    I want them back for a third time!!!!

    Amen to both counts. I love the Cowboys because they were the perfect contestants. Great racers, yet nice and humble. Many times those teams who are physically fit are also arrogant, while the nice teams are the ones who wash out early.


    I am seriously considering whether I want to watch this. As much as I love the Cowboys and Mark/Bopper, I really do not think I could stomach all those nasty teams again. One nasty team, maybe. But three in one race? Good grief almighty.

    For whoever doesn't remember Oswald/Danny, they were the gay Cubans from season 2 and All-stars.

    They were known for being nice to everyone and being funny at times. At one point they went shopping in the middle of a leg.
