'The Amazing Race': New cast (including relatives of John Wayne and Daniel Boone) and twist revealed!
Sitcom star Lisa Whelchel and former baseball MVP Jeff Kent may not be appearing, but The Amazing Race will trot out a few semi-celebrities of its own when the 22nd season of the reality hit premieres Feb. 17 on CBS. And the teams will have a new twist to contend with at the very start.
Headlining the cast are Jennifer Kuhle and Caroline Cutbirth of the country band Stealing Angels. Kuhle is the granddaughter of John Wayne while Cutbirth is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone. They will be competing against former NHL player Bates Battaglia and his brother Anthony, as well as YouTube channel hosts Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena. Also among the 11 new teams of two competing is a pair of twin doctors, two roller derby moms, and a father and son who both have survived cancer. (The full cast list is below.) READ FULL STORY »
If you need more convincing to watch this season of The Amazing Race after learning that two of the competitors are Chippendales dancers, then I’m not the person to do it. Host Phil Keoghan may just be, though. TAR 21, kicking off this Sunday just a week after the show picked up its ninth Emmy for Outstanding Reality Series, will travel to yet more far-flung locations, including China, France’s Loire Valley, Bangladesh, and Indonesia. But it’s the competitors themselves who have Keoghan most excited for this round of racing. Below, he previews what viewers can expect. Hint: There will be shirtlessness — lest you forget — as well as Fabulous Beekman Boys and the show’s first-ever double amputee. (And that’s without mentioning the metalheads and monster truckers!) He teases, “We are picking people to be on the show who we know will react in an extreme manner sometimes.”

Appearing on reality shows all the time can be soooo stressful on VIP waitresses. In this sneak peek from tonight’s installment of The Amazing Race, Rachel breaks down after realizing that A) foreign taxis aren’t always at her beck and call B) Brendon is a lot smarter than her and C) She TOLD HIM he was a lot smarter than her. Why doesn’t he listen???
In preparation for the return of The Amazing Race this Sunday, host Phil Keoghan previews the 11 new teams and what makes this group so special. (Maybe it’s because they’re having to race through five continents, 22 cities, and nearly 40,000 miles, or what CBS refers to as “one of the most competitive courses ever?”) READ FULL STORY »
They’re baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Big Brother repeat offenders Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas have become the latest pair of CBS reality stars to try their hand at sprinting across the globe for a million dollars when season 20 of The Amazing Race kicks off on Feb. 19 at 8pm. The engaged couple will be following in the frequent flier footsteps of Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, Survivor’s Boston Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich (who played twice), Survivor’s Ethan John and Jenna Morasca, as well as Big Brother’s Alison Irwin (and her out of house boyfriend Donny Patrick).
Rachel and Brendon will be competing against 10 other teams, including married clowns, federal agents, border patrol agents, dating divorcees, and, naturally, twins. (The full cast list is below.) Along the way, players will be forced to skydive, train with Massai warriors in Tanzania, and visit the German castle that served as the inspiration for the one in Sleeping Beauty. The show will also be traveling for the first time ever to Paraguay and Azerbaijan. READ FULL STORY »
