    A pair of ''Survivor'' winners; a former NFL player; two ex-Vegas showgirls: See who'll be competing this season!

    I guess those Karl Malone rumors from a couple months ago were from people who didn't know who Marcus Pollard was.

    I don't like players from one show going on another show. Rob & Amber already did AR (Rob was very good but they lost because of a needle/haystack challenge). And if they are going to have former survivor players I could think of far more interesting pairings than Ethan and Jenna. I thought the domestic partners were twins, or at least brothers, when I saw their pic. The matching outfits probably did it lol. But I do like the actual twins they have this season :)

    The thing is they need a hook to get people watching from the first episode when we dont know anybody yet. They also want to bring audiences in from other reality shows.
    Some people may deliberately tune in because they like Jenna and Ethan.
    You have all the other contestants to root for.

    But please don't say it's about giving poor people the chance to win money. It's about entertaining television and viewership.

    So he makes change for a living? Does he work at that bank who has that commercial on SNL? The bank that does nothing but make change? :p

    Another contestant is a "soul searcher." I hear that pays well. :rolleyes:

    Ethan is a change maker, he is one of the few who makes a difference in the world.

    He donated some of his winnings from Survivor to starting Grassroot Soccer, an organization whose goal is to "mobilize the global soccer community to combat the AIDS epidemic in Africa".

    If they want to raise viewership from the Survicor crowd they should pair Richard and Russel. That would be fun and interesting.

    They would have to wait for Richard to get out of prison. Plus, didn't Russell say that he was done with Survivor?

    I'm interested to see how Ethan and Jenna interact in the context of the Amazing Race. They have been through some incredibly tough and stressful times together and my bet is that they'll get along better than most teams we've seen on this show.

    Good thing this show is The Amazing Race. ;)

    I think Boston Rob and Russell would be much more interesting!

    "soul searcher" sounds better than "stay at home daughter".

    I love that Ethan and Jenna are going to be on

    Mmmmm mmmmm good!



    BTW, if this were their TAR outfits, I am sure the ratings would spike tremendously!!!
