    Very excited. Can't believe they got Colin and Christie back. Very excited to see them all these years later.

    And hopefully he's had a chance to repair his ox during that time.

    Great: professional reality show players playing yet again. :(

    I enjoy the show, but so much would have preferred real people . . . .

    I quit watching Amazing Race a few years ago. "For Me" it was too stressful (as I sit in my recliner :D ), From the start of the show to the end..... It is Go-Go-Go, Hurry-Hurry-Hurry. And yea I get it..... it is a race!!
    What I did like about the show, is that they visited all over the world and you were able to see all the different culture.
    Thank You for the heads-up on the new AR season, as I will be sure to watch it.

    ...Awww, here in Indiana we love Rupert-in fact, he ran for Governor on the Libertarian ticket. I couldn't bear to vote for the Democratic or Republican candidate that year and in my county my vote doesn't really count (it is a blood-red county) so I voted for him! Can't wait to see how he does on TAR!

    My TiVo guide data shows a Survivor episode on 4/17, followed by Million Dollar Mile (guide just populated overnight). Does anyone know whether a season-specific OnePass will be required this time around?

    The only season of this show that I ever watched was the one that Jeff and Jordan were on.

    I have no idea who they are (and I've seen every episode of TAR).

    They are two of the most popular Big Brother players ever. They met on the show, fell in love, got married, had kids, and are still together.

    My guide now shows TAR, but my 1P from last season did not pick it up. Set up new 1P and canceled the previous one.

    Re: Million Dollar Mile. TAR was supposed to start airing in May, but they moved it up to April 17th and move MDM to Saturdays. So I assume it's tanking in the ratings and they had to move it off that time slot.

    For me, TAR was always about the destinations and the culture, and the players usually took a back seat to that. It's not like BB or Survivor where the interaction between players was of the upmost importance. Here' there's some, but it's not that important. They have built in some interactions into the game to make it feel like it matters a lot, but in the end of the day, they have to complete the tasks and it's much more about ability than personality.

    With that said, I could have done without Rachel Reilly. She's the ONLY person who I ever skipped a season of BB because she was on. But on TAR she wasn't that bad. I am actually looking forward to seeing how Rupert plays, but I imagine he'll be gone early. He's older and less fit than most of the players (at least last time I saw him.)

    I also agree that I'd rather see new players than All-Stars, but I feel the same with any of these show.

    Season 32 finished filming at the end of last year, and I believe it’s back to new players for that one. No idea when CBS will decide to air it.

    I’m so sick of Rachel Riley. I don’t watch Survivor so whatever pre-existing interest CBS wanted me to have in them doesn’t exist. I only remember at most half of the others.
