Whoever mentioned ANTM girls before. Genius. Though I'd put Ann and Coryn together... they'd kick some behind.

Also, I second the team of Pieter van den Hoogenband and Ian Thorpe, so long as we can have Michael Phelps (with a bag over his face, of course, to cover that ugly mug) with... I dunno... Spanish fútbolista Fernando Torres. The whole language barrier would be amusing, but Torres' ability to speak Spanish would come in handy in... oh I don't know, HALF the world?

Thanks to Wing's interview with "Arrested Development's" Will Arnett, in which he said he likes TAR, I'd love to see him and his wife (Amy Pohler) as a team. Based on talk-show interviews I've seen with him, he'd bring just as much funny as she would.

Oh, that would be a good one. I would suggest another AD team, with Portia DiRossi & Ellen DeGeneres. TAR has had a bunch of gay male couples, but I can't remember any lesbian couples--and if Portia & Ellen weren't available, I'd also love to see Melissa Etheridge & Tammy Lynn Michaels.

Here's a few teams i'd like to see. They can call it the "ripped from the headlines" edition, that phrase always seems to bring in the ratings.

Naomi Campbell and one of her assistants
Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston
Mel Gibson and Joe Liebermann
Dick Cheney and the guy he shot
Jon Stewart and Robert Novak
Mark Foley and Michael Jackson
Sienna Miller and her former nanny
Rosie O Donnell and Pat Robertson
OJ Simpson and Ron Goldman's father
Bill O Reilly and Keith Olberman
Star Jones and Barbara Walters

Whoever is still alive at the finish line wins.

I'd also like to see a "Spy vs. Spy" edition.
Sean Connery and Roger Moore
Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan
Jennifer Garner and Michael Vartan

Hmmm... I've borrowed liberally from some earlier posts and tried to factor "who would actually do something like this" into my equation, though sometimes I fudged that. I tried to fill most of the usual categories, as noted below, and pay homage to various areas of the entertainment world, though my own interests are still obviously over-represented.

1) William Shatner & Leonard Nimoy (alternatively: Adam West & Burt Ward)

Niche: Older Couple

2) Simon Cowell & Paula Abdul (alternatively: Regis Philbin & Kathy Lee Gifford)

Niche: Bickering Couple

3) Jon Stewart & Steven Colbert (alternatively: Matt Stone & Trey Parker)

Niche: Funny Friends

4) Vince McMahon & Stephanie McMahon (alternatively: Hulk Hogan & Roddy Piper)

Niche: Uber-Competitors/Schemers

5) Chris Evert & Martina Navratilova (alternatively: Bill Walton & Kareem Abdul Jabbar)

Niche: Uber-Competitors

6) James Carville & Mary Matalin (alternatively: Tucker Carlson & Paul Bagala)

Niche: Bickering Couple/Schemers

7) Paris Hilton & Nicole Richie (alternatively: Tara Banks & Heidi Klum)

Niche: Young, Hot People

8) Matthew Broderick & Nathan Lane (alternatively: Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson)

Niche: Funny Friends/Nice People

9) Alyson Hannigan & Nicholas Brendon (alternatively: James Marsters & Juliet Landau)

Niche: Nice People/Young, Hot People (Well, in James' case, not so Young)

10) Gary Coleman & Todd Bridges (alternatively: Mayim Bialik & Jenna Van Oy)

Niche: None, really. But Gary Coleman would have to be invited.

11) Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel (alternatively: Mel Brooks & Carl Reiner)

Niche: Old Couple/Nice People

12) Bobby Flay & Cat Cora (alternatively: Leslie Segrete & Andrew Dan-Jumbo)

Niche: Uber-Competitors/Alphas

Man... as much as I hate the idea of a celebrity edition (probably because I know it'd be filled with the Kathy Griffens of the world), these kinds of line-ups would make it very worth watching. And, seriously, I think Gary Coleman'd keep his calendar clear, if you know what I mean.

Any two of Probst/Seacrest/Trump/Chen. Because Probst would be so pissed that they found someone slightly more annoying than he is. And they'd have to admit that TAR is superior to their pieces of crap.

Allan Wu and whoever hosts TAR: Central Europe.

Last episode's combination of "Americans making their own interpretation of another culture's dances" and "poor doomed critters" has put a fantasy into my head wherein Jonathan Papelbon and Josh Beckett of the Red Sox compete in a season of TAR. Surely Pap's "no pants, no problem" attitude will be good for at least one episode title, and can't you just see Beckett having an "I'm PITCHIN' it!" moment?

... oh, yeah, and they're both really athletic and determined and stuff.

From Heroes:
Sylar and Maya. Or Maya and Alejandro. Or Sylar and Mohinder, they'd all be good. Though I pity the poor folk who'd have to race with them, given the high death risk.
Niki and Micah. She brings the brawn - but might be too whiny and scared and multi-personaltied to use it - and he brings the brains.
Monica and Peter. They'd be able to do anything perfectly just by watching someone.
I'd kind of like to see Hiro and Ando there too, with Hiro stopping time during the detours and then replacing teams' flash cards, furniture ect. with like, Cornflakes or a snuff box. And he could hide their chicken and give them a rubber one!

Sam and Dean from Supernatural.

Clark and Lana from Smallville. Clark could physically do any task in five seconds flat, but he's kinda dumb and too busy having ANGST! and Theceths! Lieth! with Pwincess Lana. It could be entertaining on TAR and without Goughlar to protect her, it would be interesting to see her have to deal with the consequences of her actions. Alternatively, we could have the friendship duo that is Clark and Chloe if we wanted a working team. He's brawn, she's brain.

Do you have Kath & Kim in the US yet? They'd be entertaining.

Ned and Chuck from Pushing Daisies. They can't touch or she'll die.

House. It doesn't really matter who he brings along, so long as he's there to be mean and snarky. Oh wait, thought coming. Crossing shows, him and Daria. Awesomeness abounds.

Brett's no longer with us, although with Charles Nelson Reilly dying before Brett, it wouldn't have mattered too much. I always admired Jamie Farr, but for perfect TV, CNR and Brett racing was a must, IMO!

I just read that Nestor Carbonell (ageless Richard Alpert from Lost) and his wife, actress Sharon Kenny, are big fans of TAR. I'd love to see them on the show! Hear that, TAR casting folks?

ETA: Or, just Nestor and Michael Emerson (Ben) or Terry O'Quinn (Locke). I'd love to see a Ben/Richard team.

It's been discussed last season on the Survivor threads, but I'd really like to see a team made out of some Villain women: Parvati/Danielle (Parvati speaks several languages and they're very athletic), Parvati/Courntey (becuse they'de be hilarious and pretty tough) or Sandra/Courtney (they'd be physically pretty useless but hilarious). I know it's happened before (Rob and Amber, Allison from Big Brother) and if anyone should come, they are (I could make an exception or Coach/Courtney, being a Dragonz fan) ... heck, even Russel but only if Parvati gets to go with him.
