nice mix. I don't expect much out of team #6...

TimeandTide 07-19-06 02:55 PM

Hm. Safe to assume that the teams that feature competitors with limited travel experience won't last long? Good luck, Conley's and Alabama moms!

Giles 07-19-06 02:59 PM

I predict Teams 8 or 9 will win the race...

Damn, I wonder if Jamie Hill is related to Lauren Hill who was also a USC cheerleader. She looks kind like her if it's the brunette.

I had a few classes with Lauren way back when. She dropped out and went the way of Playboy. Also, she won the Fear Factor playboy episode. That's her on the left: http://www.nbc.com/Fear_Factor/rewind/214_rewind.shtml

The douchebags, er, I mean pretty boys are likely to be the favorite.

The Cocks Cheerleaders look pretty good. Better than the Miss USA contestants.

Why is the gay team always male? Can't we ever get some hot lezbos?
