TV Guide actually had a full article about it a few weeks ago before they changed the premiere date.

Lots of "familiar" pairings in there (dating models, father/daughter, etc). Only one Dude/Dude group. Two Chick/Chick groups. The rest are mixed.

We should do some sort of fun side game, like a pool or something.

If you do, make sure you watch at least the first 3 episodes or so. As you get to know the teams and when there are fewer teams for them to have to show, it starts to pick up speed. I've seen all 5 TARs so far, and I'm more anxious to see the upcoming one than ever before based on how fantastic the last race was.

I can foresee the 2 girls from Queens, NY getting on my nerves very quickly. Looks like they have an in-shape older couple this time. I'd rather see them than young fatasses like the pizza brothers from TAR 5.

I hope that the Amazing Race starts to mix up their teams a bit. Same cookie cutter formula.

It's starting to become as bad as Survivor on how the teams are chosen.

Nonetheless, I'll be watching the show.

Can't wait for this to start. The professional wrestling team looks like they'll be good for laughs. I want to see them get stuck trying to walk through a doorway together

Did anyone see the preview on CBS's morning show today? It was a long preview, almost exactly what you'd expect to see in the first several minutes of the actual show (ie interviews and bits about all the teams, then showing the start of the race). One thing that caught my attention, they said "ten countries" in the preview, and it seems like every race, they visit fewer and fewer countries, is that everyone else's impression?

the average so far is from past seasons is 10 countries, so doing 10 for this seaons is not bad.

Here are the season numbers from the CBS website

#1. 9 Countries, 4 Continents, 35000 Miles

#2. Five continents, eight countries and fifty-two thousand miles

#3 "Four continents, thirteen countries, forty one thousand miles

#4: After 4 continents, 24 cities, and 44,000 miles, 9 countries

#5 six continents, 11 countries and 72,000 miles

Huh... that's funny that the last season, which I thought was rather stagnantly mired in a few countries (how many eps were they in Egypt, anyways???), actually had more than some of the previous seasons. Guess we'll wait and see.

Can't wait for this to start. I wonder if my Tivo guide is far enough out to season pass it.

I think we'll have to wait about a week yet for that.

I just set up a wishlist for this, since each season has a different title (same thing with Survivor).

I always feel so-so about the casting before a Race starts, but once we get to know the people, it gets good. Can't wait for it to begin.

TV racers heat up
By SARAH KENNEDY
Calgary Sun

It was only a matter of time.

The Amazing Race -- popular for its globetrotting, extreme adventures and gruelling skill requirements, but void of bikini-clad young hotties -- has opted to sex-up its sixth season.

The cast of the new season, premiering Nov. 16, will include five models, a former Playboy Playmate, two spinning instructors and a former striptease aerobics instructor.

Last season, which featured a line-up of young attractive cast members including a NFL cheerleader, former Miss Teen USA and a male model, was awarded with some of the program's highest ratings numbers to date.

It appears CBS is attempting to up the ante, and the ratings. Two Emmy's don't automatically translate into a boost in viewership.

Spoiler:
TV Guide also reveals that Amazing Race 6 will feature commentary from last season's popular contestant Charla Faddoul, Amazing Race 3 co-winner Flo Pesenti and original Race edition team members.


Ages of this season's contestants range from 23 to 69 and teams consist of father/daughter, husband/wife, best friends, dating and engaged couples, ex-couple and sisters.

Like the last instalment, Amazing Race 6 will have only 11 teams.

Although the show was initially pegged for Saturday nights, producers were able to return it to its popular Tuesday timeslot, which is the reason for the brief delay in season six's premiere.

No, no, no, no, no, NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TAR fans, the above doesn't have anything to do with the results of the next race, but has to do with... ugh.
Spoiler:
I don't even know which one Charla is... the short one or the whiny one... but I don't want to see either of them again. And Flo? FLO?! Flo "Ride on the Coattails of Saint Zach to Victory While Crying The Entire Way" Pesenti?
Are they trying to get fans of previous seasons not to watch? Damn it.
