Brendon and Rachel from Season 20. He had a PhD and she cried a lot. They were engaged but now are married. They were also on Big Brother. She kind of annoyed me with her crying and he annoyed me when he made her cry. But I'm okay with them.
Caroline and Jennifer, the country singers from Season 22. The typical blonde barbie who were one of the blandest teams in one of blandest TAR seasons. Sigh.
Dave and Connor (Season 22) – Father/Son cancer survivors. They were the only light in Season 22 and when they quit due to Dave's torn achilles tendon, it all went downhill. Love these guys although the producers kept bringing up the cancer thing ad nauseum. Hope they don't do that again, and not just the cancer but the torn achilles thing. Amazing Race Canada producers were much better this kind of thing, they were more subtle about Jody's injuries from Afghanistan and Tim Sr's. Parkinson.
Flight Time and Big Easy, the Globetrotters who've had two chances — Seasons 15 and 18 – and now a third chance. Lucky dudes. But they are fun. No real complaints.
Jessica and John, the annoying couple (well, he was mostly the annoying one) who didn't use their Express Pass and were eliminated. Ack. Hope they are gone soon and then he can rationalize that he meant to be eliminated then.
Jet and Cord, the Cowboys who are also getting a third chance. Of course, they are the most popular TAR team ever, so might as well bring them back.
Joey and Meghan. Oh God, these You tubers were one of the most annoying and yet bland teams ever. There are many more interesting annoying teams that they could have brought back, like Tim and Marie. Or anybody else. Don't understand why they have so many Youtube followers. Please eliminate early.
Leo and Jamal. Guess the Afghanimals don't win Season 23. These guys are fun, I like watching them and how they enjoy themselves in the race. However, they sometimes forget the race and focus too much on the fun. They also have trouble reading clues. And based on this, and the fact that Tim and Marie were also rumoured to be on Season 24 but aren't, it looks like Jason and Amy or Travis and Nicole win Season 23. Interesting to seek how that works out.
Mallory and Mark. Mallory was part of team with her dad, Gary on Seasons 17 and 18. And Mark was half of another very popular team (one of my favs) with his buddy Bopper from Season 20. It seems that Mark and Bopper were supposed to be on Season 24 but Bopper couldn't make it. So Mallory, who is also from Kentucky, stepped in. Or something. No info on this.
Margie and Luke, the mom and her hearing impaired son from Seasons 14 and 18. They were okay, I guess. Good people but there are other teams I would like to give a second chance to than give these guys (and other teams like the Globetrotters and the Cowboys) a third.
Natalie and Nadiya, the Twinnies from Season 21. Gonna annoy the shit out of Gord. Although like many, I liked this team in the first stages, they were fun, loud, annoying and used that to their advantage, annoying other teams while doing task. But when they took the mony from the Metalheads, they crossed a line. U-turning, annoying teams, playing the game strategically is one thing, but stealing money from another team is another.
And why not also the Metalheads? Although one may be on tour and can't make it. Many fans know the selection of teams may not just be the teams people want or the producers want. No doubt they have a list, but the teams they want also have to be able to do it, not have anything else going on, like touring, or other gigs. So availability also plays a role in which teams are selected.
Okay that's the most recent confirmed rumours based on what people have seen in airports around the world. But I'll guess we'll all have to wait until CBS officially releases the info.
