Have always wanted to see a Mormon team on this show.....hope they do well! Just hope there's no drinking challenges!

My wife and I love the show and will be watching and rooting! Have fun guys!

What does religion have to do with anything. People like you give the LDS church a bad name!

Pretty sure anyone who identifies w any of the teams, whether race, where they're from, religion, orientation, etc is excited to see someone "like them" on a popular show like this, that's all. No need to pull the paranoid Mormon card.
Good luck to the O'learys!

MCNM- With a name like O'Leary, they'll do fine in drinking challenges. All of my Irish friends are awesome at them.

As per rules of the show, contestants are to notify the producers of any religious requirements ahead of time and in the case of an LDS team (active) they could request a non-alcoholic substitution.

Sounds like a team to root for! I'm glad they have a liquor substitution rule in the case of religious objections. I wonder if they would do the same thing in any challenge where the players have to strip down, like during the bodybuilding challenge and underwear race through Siberia (or some other frigid Russian locale--can't remember where exactly). I suppose they could always just take the 4-hour penalty and hope God rewards them for sticking to their standards.
