Thanks to the Reality Fan Forum we can identify the contestants that I captured as they embarked on the first leg of The Amazing Race 17 on our lobster boats right across from the dock here in East Gloucester.  This may help fans identify which boats their favorite teams are on as we learn more about who is who.

When the first episode starts you can look for your favorite teams by which are on the boats as follows- Purple and Yellow Team on The Jennie C (Dark Green Lobster Boat skippered by Tom Lupo).

The Lime Green Team who are on the Tuna.com (a black tuna boat) and were in the lead according to my wife as they left Eastern Point and headed down East Main Street Gloucester within the first hour of the race  they were the drop dead gorgeous all female team according to first hand accounts.

The Dark Green Team of Connor Lawrence Diemand-Yauman and   Jonathan Schwartz .  Both Princeton Class of ’10, could they be Team Nassoons? (A Princeton a capella singing group). Credit to David Walter of The Ink for the COMPLETE REVEAL via Reality Fan Forum also the Blue team aboard the Karyn D (a Rockport based lobster boat) skippered by Ryan Drohan.

Team Turquoise and Team Grey(with hints of Maroon) aboard the Karen Lynn (a light gray tuna boat) Team Turquoise- Stephanie Smith (22) and Chad Waltrip (25)—Newly Dating.

Team Pink and Team Orange aboard The Lady J (a white lobster boat with blue trim skippered by Dave Jewell) Team Orange- two black guys who may or many not be a little effeminate (not that there’s anything wrong with that) :) and Team Pink an all female team.

CBS Amazing Race 17 Start Gloucester Ma Drop off Bus With Blacked Out Windows And Staging Area

As promised we have more Amazing Race 17 coverage from the very start when the teams were let out of the bus.  If you click on the first pic it will enlarge to the full sized photo to get you right up close to the action.  The second pic is a version that will fit in your browser window when you click on it.

As you can see when you click on the larger picture the name of the bus company is M&L Transit.  It looks as if the windows have a black layer of sheathing that is velcro over where the windows are the entire length of the bus.

In this second set of pictures the teams have disembarked the bus and are waiting to walk down the gangway to get on the lobster boats.  First hand accounts say that there were production people among the contestants reminding them to not talk among one another.  The contestants were not supposed to even speak to their respective teammates at this point.

I’d like to ask if could people not simply copy and paste this entire post onto message boards and instead copy the url of this blog post to share.  Lots of work goes into blogging and at the very least good form is to post a sentence with a link back to a newspaper or blog post saying for the rest of the story go here- http://www dot xyz story dot com

Now for the good stuff, some more insider dish on the process of how they get the contestants to the start of the race!

From what was overheard the contestants are flown in on private chartered jet with the windows blacked out so they have no idea where they are landing.  They are then ushered directly into a bus which has completely blacked out windows and they are not supposed to talk to each other at all.  They got off the bus at The State Fish Pier In Gloucester which is where I started taking video and where they boarded the fishing boats.  With the weather being unseasonably warm they could have easily mistaken Gloucester for a warmer climate port.  You can click on this link to see all the pictures of what takes place at The State Fish Pier in Gloucester

More to come later……
