Welcome to The Amazing Race 12 HTF Challenge. Like in previous challenges, each person will get to pick one team who they think will win The Amazing Race. 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 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
Winner of Individual Leg: 3
Fast Forward: 3
U-Turn: 3

Here is the list of teams, more info can be found at the CBS The Amazing Race 12 website, along with the general HTF discussion thread here. I'll list each member on the first two lines, followed by a line with their relationship to each other. 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:

Ouch! I missed this thread as I haven't watched the DVR yet. It's a real pain since Football will probably shove TAR into the next show almost every week. Posted Image

I'll sit on the sidelines since I missed the deadline. I don't like to run more than one contest at a time so I passed on suggesting a Top Ten Challenge for this show since Survivor is going full force.

Good luck everyone.

This has to be the earliest I've lost a final four team. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.

I'm surprised I still have 2 teams left in the final four. Have to be rooting for TK/Rachel at this point. No way did I think either teams with the grandpas would be in the final four.

It was weird how only 1 person guessed right on 2 of these final four teams, and that pretty much gave Phil the victory.

Well, even if I didn't win, it was nice picking the winner. Thanks for doing the contest. It was a fun season.
