Big O is on the eve of Season 11, now 70 Coaches strong. What better way than to showcase the returning champions of Big O then to showcase them within a massive run down. Think of it as an introduction guide to foreigners and a refresher for the locals. (Once again fresh rolls you gotta earn this coverage, hard to write about a story if you haven't got one yet....).

So without further delay, let's dive in!
