Weren't the cowboys in another All Stars? Redeeming something or another?

 

CBS love Brenchel ....

I love the Amazing Race!  I think it's a great show to watch as a family.  My kids get to see other countries, and we love watching the challenges.  Of course, just watching the groups interact is fun in itself!  They can be pretty nasty to eachother.

While I don't watch the show regularly, I'm very happy when I do catch it.  Thank you for the updates.

I’ve been following this season so far. I’m not really die-hard for this show anymore, but it airs before The Good Wife so I continue to watch it. Nonetheless, I will look forward to watching Brenchel run the race again.

I only ever watched the first season of The Amazing Race. It's not that I didn't like the show, I did. I just had a lot of other shows at the time I guess. The season that I did watch was pretty awesome though. I love the travel aspect of it, and all of the stuff that you learn while you play it. It's definitely quite the challenge though. I think I may see what the next season is like the next time that it's on.

Yes that is Marge below from Marge & Luke. One of three teams returning for the third time to race. The Globetrotters and Cowboys are the other third timers.

They've surpassed Jeff and Jordan as CBSs darling couple if it is them.

Jeff is still CBS' golden boy. I will bet my whole paycheck he'll be back for a BB All Stars.

Jeff is. The could, Jeff and Jordan, aren't. Frankly, they didn't add anything to TAR 16.

This season hasn't been very good. My problem is that most of the teams aren't likable. The two teams that I sort of liked were eliminated from the race early, so that's a shame. I still enjoy the show for the locations and challenges. Although, season 24 is looking to be good! I like the cowboys and snowboarders, will be rooting for them.

The Cowboys, Globetrotters, and Margie & Luke, ugh! None are deserving of a third time.

I'm in agreement except for the globetrotter. 

 

The cowboys' fame is the most puzzling to me.

Yes, while I don't watch every episode religously anymore, the Amazing Race is still one of my favorite reality shows as travel is one of my passions in life and it's interesting to be able to see different parts of the world. Although the representations aren't always acurate I remember one episode filmed in New Zealand, where I live and one of the challenges was to get covered in sticky molasses and carry eggs through an obstacle course that looks like it's meant for dogs. The Amazing Race reffered to this activity by a hillarious name and my family members were all laughing as know one had every heard of this activicty, it was just made up for the show, although the Amazing Race made it out to be a game that's frequently played in New Zealand ha ha.

 

I also like watching the different groups handling stress in different ways and interacting with each other. There are always a few colorful characters ha ha ha.

Gotta give it to Rachel and Brandon. They are doing extremely well on the race. I didn't think they'll make it this far.

Rachel and Brendon are good racers when they are focused. They have a good balance of intelligence and physical ability to run the race well which is why they were able to advance to F3 again. I believe they are the only repeat team to have made it to the final 3 twice.

Two former Survivor cast members are among the teams on the 25th season of The Amazing Race, which began this morning in New York City’s Times Square. CBS has taken the atypical approach of announcing the cast and start of the race on the day it began. The show moves to Friday nights at 8 this fall.Among the cast members are two CBS reality stars: Survivor South Pacific contestants Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson, who had an affair on the show that ended her marriage. Whitney divorced her then-husband, and she and Keith are now engaged.Other cast members include pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm to a shark and inspired the film Soul Surfer, which was based on her autobiography; she’s also appeared on shows such as The Biggest LoserAre You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?, and 19 Kids and Counting. She’s competing with her surfer husband Adam Dirks.Here’s the full list of cast members from CBS, which includes pro wrestlers Brooke Adams and Robbie E. Strauss:

Bethany Hamilton and Adam Dirks: Married Surfers from Princeville, Hawaii
Kym Perfetto and Alli Forsythe: Urban Bike Racers from Brooklyn, N.Y.
Amy DeJong and Maya Warren: Food Scientists from Madison, Wisc.
Lisa Thomson and Michelle Thomson: Realtor Sisters from Miami, Fla.
Michael Ward and Scott Strazzullo: Firefighters from Boston, Mass.
Brooke Adams and Robbie E. Strauss: Dating Pro Wrestlers from Houston, Texas and Woodbridge, N.J., respectively.
Tim Tsao and Te Jay McGrath: College Sweethearts from Pasadena, Calif.
Isabelle Du and Dennis Hour: Model and Accountant, respectively, from Tustin, Calif.
Keith Tollefson and Whitney Duncan: Engaged Couple from Nashville, Tenn.
