Amazing Race Season 18 is back!!!


The Amazing Race is a seven-time Emmy Award-winning adventure reality series hosted by Emmy-nominated host, Phil Keoghan, which pits teams, of two, against each other on a trek around the world. At every destination, each team will have to compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

The Amazing Race 18 is the eighteenth installment of the reality television show. The Amazing Race 18 will feature eleven teams of two — each returning from a previous edition — in a race around the world for a $1 million prize. The show is hosted by Phil Keoghan. It will also be the first American season of The Amazing Race to be filmed and broadcast in high-definition.

Filming started on November 20, 2010 at the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm near Palm Springs, California where the first task had teams sorting through hundreds of paper airplanes to find one that said "Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services", the full name of Qantas Airways, awarding them one of two flights to their first destination: Sydney, Australia. Teams were spotted at Oceanworld in Manly near Sydney, Australia around November 22, 2010 and a day later around the mining town of Broken Hill, New South Wales in the Australian Outback. Other locales cited as destinations are Yokohama, Japan, where teams swam in freezing waters near Mount Fuji, and the series' first visit to Liechtenstein, where a task had teams measure the length of the principality on mopeds. Teams also visited Lijiang and Kunming, People's Republic of China; Kolkata and Varanasi, India; Vienna, Austria; Zermatt, Switzerland; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Express Pass, introduced in the previous series, will return, allowing the team that places first in the first leg to skip any later task in the race. Additionally, the last team to arrive on the non-elimination first leg will be forced to complete a U-Turn in the next leg, performing both tasks of the leg's Detour.

The 18th season of The Amazing Race has been subtitled "Unfinished Business", and will feature eleven returning teams from previous seasons for a second chance to win the million dollar prize. Keoghan described all the teams as "came so close to winning but for one reason or another just didn't quite make it over the finish line in first place". Keoghan gave examples of two teams: Zev and Justin from Season 15, who though had finished first on a leg, had lost their passport too late to continue racing; and LaKisha and Jen from Season 12, where they took an unfortunately-timed restroom break while racing to the Pit Stop and were eliminated. The prior experience of all the teams in previous seasons allowed the producers to increase the difficulty of the various tasks and challenges they were to face. All of the teams have been from recent seasons of the Race; the earliest season represented is the 12th. According to Bertram Van Munster, they stayed with more recent teams as "if we're digging too far back, people might not even remember who they were". The 14th season is represented by five of the eleven teams; Van Munster called this particular version of the race "a very unique season" and justified its larger proportion of teams. Though they had considered fan-favorites Toni and Dallas from the 13th season, Keoghan stated they felt the other selected teams "have the best stories and the best motivation" for casting.

The returning teams (and their prior race placements) are:

From Season 12:

Ronald & Christina Hsu, father & daughter, 2nd place

Kent Kaliber & Vyxsin Fiala, dating goths, 5th place

Margie & Luke Adams, mother & son, 3rd place

Amanda Blackledge & Kris Klicka, engaged (dating in Season 14), 8th place

Jaime Edmondson & Cara Rosenthal, former NFL cheerleaders, 2nd place

LaKisha & Jennifer Hoffman, sisters, 4th place

Mel & Mike White, father & son, 6th place

From Season 15:

Zev Glassenberg & Justin Kanew, best friends, 9th place

Herb "Flight Time" Lang & Nate "Big Easy" Lofton, Harlem Globetrotters, 4th place

From Season 16:

Jet & Cord McCoy, brothers & cowboys, 2nd place

From Season 17:

Gary & Mallory Ervin, father & daughter, 6th place

I was actually amazed to check out that this partnered with a Lexmark, yet
I Googled the E210 and it looks nearly identical to the Samsung ML-1210 .
.. So I suspect there are some inter-manufacturer similarities that I was not aware of.

large amount of work? I have very little knowledge of coding but I had been hoping to start my own

Many thanks!
