Amazing Race All Stars

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It definitely worked for Survivor. It sort of worked for Big Brother. Now, The Amazing Race is getting in on the all-star act.

CBS has confirmed that the 11th edition of the round the world reality show will bring back some—though not all—of the series' biggest names, for The Amazing Race: All-Stars. And the excluded teams have had no qualms in expressing their outrage.

Perennial reality show also-ran Rob Mariano and former Survivor champ Amber Brkich have been tapped to return for yet another shot at unscripted glory, as has Amazing duo David and Mary Conley, aka Team Kentucky from the most recent edition of the Emmy-winning series.

Strongly rumored to be joining the foursome are season five faves, couple Colin Guinn and Christie Woods (that season's runners-up) and cousins Mirna Hindoyan and Charla Faddoul.

Generating far more reaction, however, is who has not been chosen to compete.

The perpetually bickering season six couple Jonathan Baker and Victoria Fuller, who landed their own Dr. Phil prime-time special such was the interest in their relationship, will not return, nor will season nine winners BJ Averell and Tyler MacNiven, or season five winners, married couple Chip and Kim McAllister, arguably one of the most popular teams from the series' 10 seasons.

At least to hear them tell it.

A video post to their joint MySpace blog last month, which was removed after less than a day, lashed out at Amazing Race producers for excluding them from the all-star installment.

"I don't want to sugarcoat this or anything, there is definitely going to be an Amazing Race: All-Stars, they will be starting within the next few days and Kim and I never got a phone call from anyone, not from [the executive producers], not from CBS, not from anyone," Chip said.

"We have run the gamut of emotions. I hate to be one of these kind of people that thinks he's entitled to be an All-Star—I may not actually, Kim and I may not be All-Stars material—but to be completely forgotten by CBS and the CBS decision makers...it really doesn't feel good. We could have been contacted."

While he may have got the sentiment right, his timeline was slightly off.

According to Variety, Amazing Race: All-Stars began filming just last week in Miami. But Chip and Kim weren't the only non-invitees to express their disappointment.

Season nine winners BJ and Tyler, who incidentally sent fan forums into a frenzy this spring when homoerotic photos of them with fellow Racers Jeremy Ryan and Eric Sanchez were leaked online, sounded off on their exclusion via CBS.com's Former Racers Blog, where the duo were meant to be offering commentary on the show's 10th season.

"What would be ironic is if someone were putting together an all-star version of the race and contacted teams like [season seven teams] Lynn & Alex and Brian & Greg, but did not contact us, the most popular and amazing team of all time, about it," Tyler wrote in a post last month.

"Trust me, if they were doing that, they would contact us," BJ added. "We were the most well-liked team ever to compete on the Race...I'm sure they wouldn't just pick a gimmicky team like Rob & Amber, or a 'competitive' team like Colin & Christie, and turn their backs on friendly winning teams like us and Chip & Kim, leaving us to find out about it from some gossip site."

I just hope there's no football to interefere with it tonight. Last week that was great.

I hate the way Rob keeps talking about the $$$. I would be a bit offended if I was Kimberly, it's like he thinks they won't have a good life together without the $$$. ugh.

I'd be fine with either of the other two teams winning.

His screaming at her during the tomato tossing thing was making me cringe, big time.

Actually, if I had to choose, I want the models to win. They seem like good guys, have overcome a lot with their addictions, and haven't been too annoying throughout the entire race. They're pretty easy to look at, too.

I actually cheered when Bama came in second. It would be neat if they could win it.

It was Kimberly who looked bad during the tomato challenge, Rob was right, you're there, just suck it up and find the clue.

Of course I lost all respect for Rob with the boo-hooing at the mat, I didn't see a bear trap around his leg, so no crying allowed.

And WTF with Karlyn being such a bith to her teammate...damn I don't think I want them to win now, or let Lyn take $975,000 and Karlyn get a $25,000 consolation portion. The woman is eating hot camel(at a much fatser clip than Kimberly) and you stand there and bitch.

This race (and the editing obviously) seems to bring out a lot of bad in some folks.

I know! That was like a total psycho-ing out on Karen's part. I never liked their attitude throughout anyway, and this just makes me root for the boys that much harder. So what if they could be the first female team to win it all?

And yeah, Rob crying when they were at the mat... Yikes. I'm a girl and I say "No crying allowed, dude." That's another thing that bugs me about him. You do not call your girlfriend "dude". I hate guys who do that.

This is why I tend not to watch reality shows for the most part - I get too pissed off at the people and take it way too seriously.

It's looking like the two guys will win this thing, unless they completely screw up.

And seeing as how they are the least annoying pair, that may be a good thing.

I think I'll still be rooting for the models. Like I said before, they annoy me the least out of everyone.

Karlyn and Kimberly with their constant bitching and complaining were driving me nuts.

However, I did like seeing both of those teams appologising and moving on - they don't normally show those kinds of scenes, so it was nice to see.

Finally got to see it tonight. I'm kind of sorry that the blonds are gone. They were a really good, competitive team, and I liked their attitude. The only negative thing they did throughout the entire show that I can remember (correct me if I'm wrong) is butting in line in front of 'Bama at the airport. That wasn't cool, but other than that, they were good. They seemed to be gracious losers, too.

I guess I want the models to win now. They're the least offensive and annoying, although it's kind of hard to muster any enthusiasm.
