Are they actually starting in some place that's NOT Los Angeles? Color me surprised.

I also have to comment, I was lurking on Survivor Sucks and their meltdown over TAR moving to Friday's is quite funny. Friday is just NOT the death sentence it used to be. I think it will either be moved quickly if it doesn't do as well but to me it's a solid lead-in, as an older skewing show to the other older skewing shows. It makes a ton of sense. It had a solid audience on Sunday but IMO, it got lost in the shuffle there. It stands out more on Friday.

I've read they are going to the season 1 finish line, but not sure.

I was watching last night on webcam. This season already seems better lol.

Keith & Whitney are so random. Out of any team of former survivors they pick them? They were so boring on South Pacific. I hope the rumors are true that the Twinnies might be on Blood vs Water 2.

The Twinnies on Survivor? I'd be over the moon thrilled by that.

I was upset a bit I missed the webcam.

I agree, this season already seems wayyy better. The casting looks better and I applaud them starting in someplace other than Los Angeles.

I agree about Keith/Whitney but I see them as not the most developed on Survivor so in a way, they're a blank slate, but still tie the shows together. I agree that casual fans of Survivor might go "who the hell are they". I don't think they were necessarily cast with the idea they are going to bring in the ratings, IMO.

Miss Cleo, a poster at Sucks who spoils The Amazing Race mentioned we'd be seeing the Twinnies again. Then they went quiet on Social Media around the same time the cast of Survivor 29 flew down to Nicaragua. I'm hoping it is true.

I love them. Not sure how they'd do if they are on S29 since they're so loud, but it would be entertaining to watch.

I think it'd be hilarious entertaining to see them on Survivor. I agree they're loud and would definitely speak up. Can you imagine their reactions if one of them was voted out and they saw that at Redemption Island? I really am trying not to get my hopes up but that's going to be gold right there.

I also think for BvW 2.0 they need easily indentifiable (sp?) pairings. I think Probst had even said there would be. Not because of the Twinnies maybe being on but I'm sort of warming up to BvW 2.0. It could work again, but the editing needs to be there. Cagayan was a massive improvement but by the merge it was (probably no way to avoid it) the Tony, Kass and Spencer show. As much as I loved Spencer ... but then between Woo, Jeremiah and Jefra, I can't imagine they had a lot to work with.

I just started watching episodes of The Amazing Race Australia and it is amazing. Really shows how far downhill the American version has become.

Are you watching Season 1? I think they're on Season 3 (Australia vs. New Zealand). I haven't seen a premiere date although I haven't checked for that in a few weeks.

It was pretty good. Just like Canada's version really surprised me, so did Australia's. The casting is good as well.

Do we have an Amazing Race Canada thread? Their second season, as I'm sure you know, premieres July 8th! I can't wait. The teams look interesting enough.

Funny how I trust casting for Australia and Canada but always go in hesitant with US casting.

Yeah, I just finished the entire first season of TARAus. Beginning Season 2 so I can get that done before Season 3.

I didn't care much for Canada's. I thought it was quite ghetto they only stayed in Canada. But TARCan2 route is quite lulzy with it going to Canada to Asia back to Canada to Paris and back to Canada.
