Yesterday on Facebook Bob said that this year they start out with half of the contestants above the yellow line, and half below. He didn't explain any more about that as to whether that meant they were sending people home, or whether that's how they're splitting the teams, or what. But he also said they are really mixing things up this season.

I'm just hoping that doesn't mean they are sending people home immediately this year... and potentially half of them? I hope to God that's not what they're doing because I hate that. Those people inevitably lose less and if it's an "earn your right to come back later" type of activity, those people always have a tough time getting into the groove of the ranch and the people. :(
