PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"TAR #12: Summary Signup Thread."
Okay, this one's going to be tricky. Right now, what we know is that we've got eleven teams -- and according to a report or two, this version of the Race features no non-elimination legs. Assume three last teams running for the finish line, and we should have nine episodes to work with -- except that nothing is guaranteed us, nothing is owed, and no one expects the Superleg inclusion.

So right now, I'm going to call this nine episodes -- but I'm really hoping a Webby will show up and let me know just how wrong I am. Until then, we'll take signups based on nine available slots.

The primary rule: you must have completed a summary for any other reality series before you can do one for TAR. And that means you volunteered, you showed up, you wrote your assigned summary, and you posted it. If you volunteered and ducked out, too bad, so sad, doesn't count.

Whoever gets the first episode is responsible for introducing the teams and should spend some time letting us know just who these DAWs are. (As TAR doesn't hold a Reunion show, whoever gets the last episode has just that: the last episode all the way to the finish line.)

Should any episode except the premiere and finale be a surprise two-hour special, we'll treat it in one of two ways:

If the total airtime count remains the same -- they're just airing two episodes back-to-back -- whoever has that summary slot takes the first half, and whoever's next up gets the second.

If they're boosting by an hour, the summary writer has the option to either take on the whole thing or open the second half to an extra writer. (If we wind up at random draw for summary slots, whoever just missed the pull has the first option.)

Summaries should go up within three days of the episode's airtime. The sooner, the better, and the faster you are, the more openly-posting readers you get. If you're ready within a day, you're golden.

If we get more volunteers than slots (which can happen for this show), the summaries will be assigned by random draw, likely conducted by a BluePeep.

(You also have one extra option here: if you really, really want to, and you can both agree to it before you apply, two writers can do a summary as a team. Work out whether you want to try it -- and who you're trying it with -- prior to signing up. And make sure you really and truly want to do it that way -- it gets complicated fast.)

Application deadline is midnight EST Thursday, November 1st. This is to give whoever gets the premiere a little time to flee the country prepare themselves. Yes, that isn't a lot of signup time, but the show kind of turned up out of nowhere this year.

This should be -- could be -- well, it's a schedule to work against and be proven horribly wrong later, but right now, it's all we've got.

Episodes:

#1: 11/4
#2: 11/11
#3: 11/18
#4: 11/25
#5: 12/2
#6: 12/9
#7: 12/16
#8: 12/23
#9: 12/30

Volunteers?



Someone else can start this for Apprentice. Or we can just let Zipperhead do all of those. You know he wants to.
