The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2012 Edition

The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 4, The Spring 2012 Edition!




The season premiere is Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8 PM.

The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $2, everyone chooses a team to latch on to before the start of the season. If that team ends up winning race, then YOU will win a $22 Amazon.com gift certificate. 100% of the entry fees will go to the prize fund.

We will be using the First-to-Post selection method for the draft. You may post 1 and only 1 team during the draft. This is strictly first-come-first-serve. Anybody posting a list will only have rights to the first team in the post. If they have already been taken, you will need to post again.

Last season, the popularity of The Amazing Race game forced the expansion to 22 DVDTalkers and to hold 2 drafts. The resulting game will produce DVDTalk teams of 2 for each team in the Amazing Race and at the end of the season, we will have 2 winners of $22 Amazon GCs.

The first draft will be held Thursday, Feb. 16 at 9:00 PM EST (6 PM Pacific) and the 2nd draft will be held on Saturday Feb. 18 at noon EST (9 AM Pacific). The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.

This season's 11 teams:

Art & J.J. (Border Patrol)
Brendon & Rachel "Brenchel" (Engaged Big Brother alumni)
Dave & Cherie (Ambassadors of Laughter)
Dave & Rachel (Married)
Elliot & Andrew (Twins)
Joey "Fitness" & Danny (Friends)
Kerri & Stacy (Cousins)
Mark & Bopper (Friends)
Misa & Maiya (Sisters)
Nary & Jamie (Federal Agents)
Vanessa & Ralph (Dating)

You may learn more about the teams at the CBS web site:
http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/season/20/cast/

Post now if you want to play and include which draft you want to participate in (Thursday or Saturday) and I will contact you with my PayPal information by Private Message. You may choose whichever draft is most convenient for you until one of them sells out.

After a draft sells out you will be assigned to the draft time that still has openings.

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EST Wednesday Feb. 15 for Thursday's draft and Saturday by 3 AM EST for Saturday's draft. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name in a comment with your PayPal payment! This is necessary so that I can match people up with their payments. Also, please use the Personal Gift option as this will avoid seller fees.

If the contest doesn't sell out and an unclaimed team wins, the prize will go to whoever has the highest finisher.

Good Luck!

Yeah, I'm sure it's not a big deal for the game. I just thought I'd throw it out there. When I first saw the image, I thought that was from the Amazing Race website.

LOL you caught me. The truth is, the phrase "Big Brother contestants" was too long. So was "Big Brother Train Wreck." So since Rachel won a season, I just put "Big Brother winners." After all, I'm sure Brendon is helping her spend all that money LOL!

Edit: Damfino had a good idea--I'm changing it to "Big Brother Alumni." TAR website just calls them "Engaged," but most people know them from Big Brother. Refresh to see the latest.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2012 Edition

Rattlehead and Patman are both in for Thursday.

I now have just one vacancy for Thursday, after that everyone will be in next Saturday's draft.
