David confirmed that two previous ANC winners will come back to compete with him and Olivia. Here's what he said:
"Oh and they confirmed that 2 previous ANC winners will be joining me and Olivia!! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to say who they are, but I'll say that while I'm a little disappointed that a certain person isn't getting another shot this time, I won't be surprised if you see more than one of us get deep into stage 3!"
So, who do you think it will be? Levi and Luci? Levi and Colin? No Levi at all?

Brian's had his chance, twice. I don't need to see him again. During ANC3 when I saw his audition video, I wanted him back really bad I thought for sure he would get to Stage 3. and then of course I knew that Levi had even more power, but all this was destroyed by the new heavier Salmon Ladder.

lol, Dave sure likes to keep us on our toes on what's going that he's making us crazy with these guessing games. It's really cool to be able to speak with the winner this time around.
Difficult to read into those comments. As I see it, the disappointment could be any of Brian, Luci or Mark. The 'deep into stage 3' could refer to Colin or Mark, but both of those seem unlikely choices, what with Colin being out of the picture for so long and Mark just recovering from injury.
We shall see.
EDIT: Oh, and I probably didn't make this clear before, but one of the two is definitely Levi, and I'm pretty sure Brian's already said he's not going. Colin, Brett, Luci, Mark, although Brett was never technically an ANC winner.

I think it's Brian as well that is not going. I wouldn't mind seeing him come back. I have zero issues with someone who has made it past the first stage to go back again. I don't care WHO it is. I would think Luci would be the one going back.. could be Colin.. dunno. I'd be a little disappointed if Brett came back since he didn't make it past stage 1 AND he got 2 chances at it. In my book the "owed" spots would be Mark (if healthy), Colin and Luci.
Oh and there is no question in my mind that Levi is/should go back to Sasuke.

Luci would probably pass the Halfpipe Attack, but I don't know how well she would do on the remaining obstacles in Stage 1. Plus, you also have to consider the time factor. I would like to see her try again, but I just don't see it happening for 22.
Colin had one chance, and I would like to see him get another chance, since he was in a course that only 2 people passed and those two both had experience on the course. I mean c'mon even Nagano failed the first stage
Brett has had 2 chances, however, he was hurt for one of them.
Levi, one of the few people to attempt Stage 3 on the Shin-Sasuke course, so, I could see him being brought back.
Brian might take a break from this for this tournament, but I could see him coming back.
Mark, if healthy, should definiately attempt the course, however, that is a injury that takes around 6 months to heal, he wouldn't have had any time to train because of that injury.

I did not know that about Colin. I can see his serious physical potential in the marine core right now, tall slender and packing muscle. If he ever came back after 19 and seeing him with us this time, he could be very head strong because he's been with the military. But because of the military I doubt he has a chance to compete in Japan. So to be realistic and still with high hopes I am hoping for Luci and Levi.

Where did you find that out? I remember his ANC3 entry said 70 pull ups, I thought that was crazy enough. Now I remember him being in the military, because his entry said so at the very beginning, silly me for forgetting.
