  • Looks great. Can’t wait.

    There have already been speculations on two possible cast members.

    Debra Beebe, a middle school principal in her early 40′s. (apparently shown at 0:34, according to some people)

    and

    Brendan Synnott, age 29.

  • DEBBIE BEEBE IS A CONTESTANT AND ALL WILL LOVE HER- THE ACS STUDENTS THINK SHE ROCKS! SHE IS GREAT WITH PARENTS TOO.
    SHE DID NOT SAY SHE WAS GOING TO REHAB, BUT JUST TOOK A LEAVE… ALL OF AUBURN KNEW WHERE SHE WAS B/C SOMEONE LET IT SLIP EARLY. DEBBIE CAN NOT SAY QUITE ABOUT ANYTHING. MANY PARENTS HAVE SAID THAT IT IS RIDICULOUS FOR THE PRINCIPAL TO TOOK OFF FOR 8 WEEKS FOR SUCH A TRIP- I AM SURPRISED THE BOARD OF ED ALLOWED THIS!
    SHE IS THE MOTHER OF TWO AND HAS THREE STEP CHILDREN. HER CHILDREN ARE ALI AND TANNER. HER EX IS THE BASEBALL COACH AT AUBURN HIGH SCHOOL AND HER CURRENT HUSBAND OWNS MATRIX WIRE.
    DEBBIE CERTAINLY DID NOT HAVE TO DO THIS FOR THE MONEY- SHE SEEMS RICH BECAUSE SHE SHOPS ALL THE TIME. I AM SURE SHE DID IT FOR THE ADVENTURE.
    AS A PARENT( YES, I HAVE HAD CHILDREN ATTEND HER SCHOOL) I HOPE SHE USED GOOD JUDGEMENT ON THE SHOW.
    JUST TO SET THE RECORD START- I’VE HEARD FROM ONE OF HER CLOSE FRIENDS THAT SHE DID TRY OUT ONE TIME BEFORE, BUT SHE DID NOT TRY OUT MANY TIMES.
    I BET YOU WILL WISH TO VOTE DEBBIE AS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE CONTESTANTS- SHE WILL BE ABLE TO GAIN YOUR LOVE AS THE SHOW PROGRESSIVES. I BET SHE IS ONE OF THE LAST TO GET KICKED OFF OF THE SHOW! CAN’T WAIT TO SEE-

  • There’s a speculated contestant called Ben Wade. Type in Wade Brothers in Wikipedia. I hope he’s on.

  • Cast is now apparently revealed:
