Welcome to The Amazing Race 8 HTF Challenge. Like in previous challenges, each person will get to pick one team who they think will win The Amazing Race. With only 10 teams this season, in an effort to enable more participation in this contest, I will be setting up 2 leagues, so each team can be picked by two people (one in each league) as the race winner and those picks will be first come, first serve. Then pick three teams who you think will round out the final four teams, and these three teams will not be exclusive per participant, meaning the same team can be added to any final four. Points will be awarded if your team is wins The Amazing Race, in addition to having any of your final four teams (including your race winner pick) finish in second, third, or fourth place. Since there is no jury like on Survivor, that can't be part of the point scale, so to replace that I will award points to any team that uses a fast forward or a yield on another team. The points scale is as follows:

First place (race winner pick): 25
First place (final four pick): 20
Second place: 15
Third place: 10
Fourth place: 5
Fast Forward or Yield: 3

Here is the list of teams, more info can be found at the CBS The Amazing Race 8 website, along with the general HTF discussion thread here. I'll list the team name on the first line, followed by each team member with their age on the next four lines, followed by a line with their relationship to each other and then a line stating where they're from. As each team is picked, I'll denote the selection with a line in bold print above the selected team and I'll add the rest of the final four alphabetically below the race winner pick as each selection is posted:

Damn, only 5 posts to this thread, and already the two families I would have chosen (Linz and Aiello) are gone.

OK, I'll go with...

The Rogers Family - American League

Final Four:

The Linz Family
The Aiello Family
The Bransen Family


Not terribly confident about my team, but then I have my reservations about every other team that's not already taken. We'll see what happens.

C'mon gang. Spots still left to be filled before tonight's premiere.

Show time!


(P.S. Daniel: I'm making this a "hot" topic and sticking it at the top of the section until all places are filled. Then it's back to normal, o.k.?)
