    I see no one has started one of these for any season of The Amazing Race yet so I figured why not lead the way with The Amazing Race 4 only four days away.

    Like the Survivor HTF challenges, the only two rules are first come, first serve, and only one selection per HTF member. As each team is eliminated, I'll strike them off the list.

    Here is the list of teams, more info can be found at CBS The Amazing Race website, along with a general HTF discussion thread here. I'll list each member with their age and occupation on the first two 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:

    Michael selected:
    Amanda, 25, Medical Technician
    Chris, 28, Freelance Graphic Designer
    Dating
    Sioux Falls, SD


    Daniel Kikin selected:

    I'll take Jon and Al, not nothing other than I can't resist voting for two clowns. [​IMG]

    Can't wait til the first episode!

    Jay H

    [edit ] Ahhhh you rat! Patrick, you took my choice... Damm you to Heck. Great....I'll probably get stuck with the virgins now... (Why would somebody put that in their bio?)

    mmmmm I guess I'll go for Russell and Cindy, their not clowns but maybe they can invent a magic babelfish device and translate all foreign languages into English.

    I hope the clowns get a pie in their faces, ppffffttttt

    Since Patrick also took my first pick (what is it about the clowns?), I'll take Reichen and Chip. They seem like a cross between Team Guido (well traveled, lived in many different countries, married gay couple) and Chris and Alex (physically fit, compete in atheletic competitions).

    Millie & Chuck. Her foreign language abilities would seem to be an advantage.

    I guess I'll take Steve/Josh. They seem to be the last group that has a chance.

    I wish I had of rung in a little earlier, I would have jumped all over Millie and Chuck.

    But you haven't seen any of them run yet, and have no idea who they are except what's in a bio. Frankly I think it would be a much better idea to do this after a few eps air

    Daniel,

    I'll take Steve and Dave if they're still available. I don't hold out much hope for this pair because these two guys don't look fit enough to win any grueling physical challenges.

    However, I think that they will fare better than the football wives in pressure situations (due to their occupations as air-traffic controllers) and they just might beat out Debra and Steve (I have no specific reason for believing this...just a hunch).

    I'm looking forward to this Thursday's premiere and this contest.

    Thanks for organizing this game, Daniel.

    Thanks Bill, but I have to give a lot of the credit for the idea to Mark Pfeiffer and Michael, who started this with the Survivor challenges, which have always made it more fun to watch the show. Since. With the long holiday weekend and TAR4 days away, I had the time to get one going to keep us busy through the summer. Hopefully there will be a fifth edition and more so we can make this more than a one-time thing for TAR. Enjoy!

    I guess I'll take Debra and Steve. I was surprised last time how far the old married couple could go.

    And I so wanted the vigins too...[​IMG]

    Once Steve started crying, I knew I was in trouble. I screamed, "There's no crying in the Amazing Race!" to no avail. Then Debra set the record for slowest speed ever when crossing the wire. I expected the models to climb over her.

    Oh well.

    Hey, since no one else has them, can I take the NFL wifes?

    All-in-all, a very good show.

    -Andy

    I was actually going to offer that, I guess you beat me to it [​IMG]

    If it's okay with everyone else, I'll switch your pick. I'll wait until tomorrow afternoon just to be sure.

    As an fyi, next week I won't be able to see TAR until Saturday night or Sunday so I won't be able to update the challenge until then.

    No problem with me, it's not like there is money involved anyway! Russell and Cindy had it going at the start, but seem to get slowed down by the bus ticket, but they did get on the 4am bus so they seemed to do OK. They did finish at or very near the last of the 3am bus teams but it's still way early in the race anyway.

    Andy, you're all set, but if the NFL Wives come in last place next week, I can't help you [​IMG]

    For a minute, I thought I'd be the one asking to switch after David and Jeff had their detour mix-up.

    Another great start to a great show.
