The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

Welcome To The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 17, The Winter 2022 Edition!
It's been too long since our last game, so we're calling it "The Longest Pit Stop".


The season premiere is Wednesday, January 5.

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.

The drafts will be held Monday, January 3 at 9:00 PM EST (6 PM Pacific). The second draft (If needed) will be held a half hour later at 9:30 EST, 6:30 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:

Akbar and Sheridan (Married Educators)
Anthony and Spencer Stone (Friends)
Arun and Natalie (Father & Daughter)
Caro and Ray (Dating)
Connie and Sam (Married)
Kim and Penn (Internet Personalities)
Marianela "Lulu" (37) and Marissa “Lala” (Twin Radio Hosts)
Michael and Armonde “Moe” (Singing Police Officers)
Raquel and Cayla (Flight Attendants)
Ryan and Dusty (Friends)
Taylor and Isaiah (YouTube Sensations)


You may learn more about the teams here: https://tvline.com/lists/the-amazing...sheridan-cook/

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 Sunday January 2. 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!

This will be interesting because we know based on this article two teams drop out and don't return.

The two teams are not identified in this article, so we will continue with the game as is and chalk them up as bad luck eliminations when the time comes.

Do you want to participate?

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Winter 2022 Edition

I have never watched an episode of TAR but my mother-in-law loves it (but not as much as she loves Survivor).

I guess I'll join up this time around. Can't hurt.

Question though: Why are there two people listed as winners in some seasons?

We had two different drafts so two people had winning teams.

Welcome to the game! With your entry, we now have a sell out for the first draft. A second game will now have a draft a half hour after the first. I will accept second entries at a later date.

Cool.

I've heard of the Holderness family. They've been around for awhile. Here's their YouTube Channel. They've got over 200M views.

Hmmm, no new signups? Maybe we won’t need a second game.

I hope everyone had a merry Christmas.

I am now going to accept entries for a second game from anyone that wants another pick.
