Jeremy and Sandy are dating, from "the San Francisco Bay area." They've both been married before and don't live together, so this will be more time than they usually spend with each other. Jeremy compares it to taking a car to the shop to see if you want to buy it. Sandy laughs, as opposed to deciding right on the spot that she's got a lemon on her hands, like most people would.
Ron and Bill are domestic partners and flight attendants, "both from Southern California." They hope their industry background will give them an edge over younger teams who are in better shape, as well as their ability to work together. "When it all unravels, I take it back," one of them says. Of course, there was a team of flight attendants in TAR14, but Jodi and Christie had the disadvantage of not being a couple as well.
Amani and Marcus have been married ten years, and are from Pine Mountain, Georgia. He played with the Indianapolis Colts for ten years, racking up 40 touchdown catches and protecting Peyton Manning. I know almost as much about football as I do about Survivor so I'll take his word for it. He interviews that he misses competing, but says he's back in game mode. "Anything less than winning for us is not an option," he vows, while his wife looks from him to us like she's starting to wonder what she's gotten herself into.
Kaylani and Lisa are "former showgirls from Las Vegas, Nevada." Over shots of them in shorts, bikinis, and their showgirl costumes, Kaylani interviews that people will look at them and think that since they're so pretty, they must be dumb. Which is totally unfair, because they're not all that pretty. Lisa predicts that the other teams will see them "from here up," pointing at her boobs, but insists that they've got it going on upstairs, as well. Which is why she got the direction wrong when she pointed at her boobs.
So that's eleven teams. Phil asks us which one of them will win, like we're supposed to know, and starts the long hike back down the PCH to the temple. Fortunately, we get to skip that walk and cut right to the courtyard, where the teams are lined up in front of him as usual. He gives them the usual welcome speech, explaining about the twelve legs, with the million dollars waiting for the winner of the final leg, and the Express Pass that's up for grabs for the winners of this first leg.
