Everyone knows I'm a big fan of THE AMAZING RACE. Haven't missed an episode of any season. Love it.

So, of course, I'm excited to see the new season and meet the teams, which were announced today. And lo, and behold, my favorite team already - Team Chippendales!  Scruffy, hunky guys - what's not to like?

  1. Thanks for this list of the competitors. I definitely missed the first few seasons, but I’ve been hooked for awhile now. One of my friends that I work with at DISH has been a fan since the first season, too—I think he has tried to get on the show multiple times. I’m torn between watching it week to week or letting a few episodes pile up on my Hopper DVR. If I wait, I can watch the episodes commercial free, because of my Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime feature. Either way, I’m rooting for the substitute teacher team.
