The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2019 Edition




Welcome To The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 15, The Spring 2019 Edition!

The season premiere is Wednesday, April 17 and this time it's mixed group of former Amazing Race, Survivor and Big Brother Contestants! Most notably... Rupert's back!

The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, 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 $55 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.

We will start with one draft on April 15. If there is sufficient demand a second draft will be held.

The draft will be held Monday, April 15 at 9:00 PM EDT (6 PM 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 & JJ (Amazing Race)
Becca & Floyd (Amazing Race)
Chris & Bret (Survivor)
Colin & Christie (Amazing Race)
Corinne & Eliza (Survivor)
Janelle & Britney (Big Brother)
Leo & Jamal (Amazing Race)
Nicole & Victor (Big Brother)
Rachel & Elissa (Big Brother)
Rupert & Laura (Survivor)
Tyler & Korey (Amazing Race)

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

Also lwhy? has posted a season thread in the TV forum here.

Post now if you want to play and I will contact you with my PayPal information by Private Message.

Bopper Rule: If for whatever reason, an announced contestant that you drafted is replaced by a substitute during the show, you will get the substitute in place of your original pick.

Please do not edit or delete posts during the draft, if your pick has already been taken or you were too early, you will need to post again. Screen captures will be taken during the draft and violations of this rule will result in your pick being revoked and you will be given the last unclaimed team in the draft (AKA the Quack play).

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EST Tuesday April 15. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name along with "Amazing Race Game" in a comment with your PayPal payment! This is necessary so that I can match people up with their payments. Also, please use the Send money to a friend 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!

I'm in as always. I'm going to do my best to keep current on this season of The Amazing Race. I'm still working on the Fall 2018 season of Survivor....

I’ve been behind on Survivor all season (but at least it’s the current season, lwhy ), but I’ll take a spot here.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2019 Edition

Bummed that this is an all-star season. I want some fresh meat! These teams aren't gonna have the same drama as a new mother/daughter team or best friends who don't know if they'll really be best friends after this.

That said, I'm just excited it's back. I hope it comes back again. This season took way too long to air. They filmed this back in June!

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2019 Edition

The first draft is now sold out and payment info sent to all.

if you are interested in participating, I will add a second draft if we get enough interest. Perhaps at least 5 more unique entries. I know I can sell 2nd entries to at least 6 people based on recent history.
