Burnie Burns & Ashley Jenkin

For my first pick of the second round, I guess I don't quite understand. If I get a pick of ANY team, I'll take
Kurt Gibson and Brodie Smith

If I only get to pick from what is left,

Jessica Versteeg & Brittany Oldehoff

I think the episode aired tonight? Havnt seen it, out in Canmore drinking wine....

Yeah, for the second round, you should be able to pick from the full list of teams. Otherwise, you'd get stuck with two teams that no one else wanted.



It felt like they spent way too much time in this episode introducing all the teams and why they're "famous", and not enough time actually racing. I hope that changes going forward.

It was also weird how so many of them knew each other already. I guess "Social Media" is like any other industry where everyone knows each other.

Interesting first leg. A number of individuals that panic easily it seems. Non-elimination to start likely because the travel days to get to Mexico were varied.

I figured it was because a team didn't start or something. Don't they usually have more than 11? Disappointing anyway, kinda makes the first leg not matter.
edit: never mind, looks like since season 16 they have had 11.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Am...._TV_series%29

They didn't get a non-elimination penalty though, which I think has not happened in a long time.

Has there ever been a first round non eliminAtion? I don't ever remember one. Just weird, although one of my teams lasts another day.

The woman on the last place team said, "Bring on the speed bump," so that sounds to me like they got a penalty. Maybe they just didn't show Phil announcing it because she had already said that?

I don't really mind the idea of a non-elimination in the first leg, because that gives me a little more chance to figure out who people are before they start going home. Although this time, I'm not sure if that matters, because the only ones I remember are Cole, for his annoying crying/screaming/yelling throughout and the doctor dad for being such a bumbler that I would switch doctors if I was his patient!

I was leery of the social media theme this year, but because I have never heard of any of them, it kind of makes that a moot point for me. It does make it harder to remember who everyone is though, because there's not that easy tag to remember them by, since they are all "social media stars."

HA ha, was watching with my wife and asked her which team she wanted. It was early in the show and she hadn't been paying to close attention. She said, I dunno, I'll take the Youtube stars. Hehe.... Uhm, can you be more specific?

They obviously grouped them in The airport in Mexico to give the true start to the race but some teams would have a much shorter travel day to get there than others. I think the non-elimination was some recognition of that. Seems the easiest explanation.

There also appear to be some very weak teams.

There was alot of panic early on. Watching a bunch of these teams yelling at the mariachis was infuriating.

Yes, the 18th race (Unfinished Business) was a "Keep Racing" first leg, so there wasn't an elimination, nor was there a Speed Bump. The following race (19) also had a first leg non-elimination, but they had 2 eliminations on the second leg.

Yeah there are a lot of loud and annoying teams but thats what you get when you bring them in from you tube and such. They are going to have to keep up their online personas or risk losing followers if their fans see them as something else. Its one thing if the teams are from another reality show (Brendan and Rachel) or from a sports team (Flight Time and Big Easy), showing their real side is not a big deal and will not affect them unless they turn out to be big racists or something.

That was a pretty good first episode. It's only one episode, but no one has annoyed me yet. It doesn't seem any different from a season of regular teams.

That guy doesn't seem too bright.
