CBS ANNOUNCES THE 11 TEAMS FOR THE "THE AMAZING RACE 12"
Five Time Emmy Award-Winning Series Premieres Sunday, Nov. 4 on CBS

 

CBS announces the 11 Teams set to compete in THE AMAZING RACE 12.  The 11 Teams will travel approximately 30,000 miles, covering five countries never before visited on the Race, including Ireland, Lithuania and Croatia.  The five-time Emmy Award-winning reality adventure series premieres Sunday, Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 

 

THE AMAZING RACE has won five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Competition Program.

 

Following are the 11 teams, listed in no particular order:

 

Name: RONALD HSU

Occupation: VP of Sales

Age: 58

Hometown: Tacoma, Wash.

 

Name: CHRISTINA HSU

Occupation: Policy Analyst

Age: 26

Hometown: Washington, D.C. via Tacoma, Wash.

Relationship:     FATHER/DAUGHTER

 

This father/daughter team is certain they can win the Race by relying on their intellect.  Christina's main goal on the Race is to have her father, a self-proclaimed workaholic, stop and smell the roses for once in his life.     

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: KYNT COTHRON      (MALE)

Occupation: Waiter/Hair Salon Receptionist                 

Age: 31                                                           

Hometown: Louisville, Ky.                   

 

Name: VYXSIN FIALA (FEMALE)

Occupation: Waiter/Hair Salon Receptionist

Age: 29           

Hometown: Louisville, Ky.

 

Relationship:     DATING GOTHS

 

Representing the "Goth" community in Louisville has embedded a strong sense of "us against the world" mentality in these two Racers.  Therefore, don't look for them to fall apart when the chips are down - a trait that will undoubtedly be tested on the Race. 

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: LORENA SEGURA

Occupation: Bartender

Age: 27                       

Hometown: Sherman Oaks, Calif.

 

Name: JASON WIDENER

Occupation: Wedding Videographer/Actor       

Age: 33                       

Hometown: Sherman Oaks, Calif.

 

Relationship:     DATING

 

This couple met at a bar over three years ago, quickly started dating, and have been trying to figure out if they really belong together even since.  Lorena is from Puerto Rico and Jason hails from Arkansas ... and the cultural differences between them has often caused friction in their relationship.  Both are running the Race to see if they have what it takes to withstand the pressures of traveling around the world in under 30 days.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: AZARIA AZENE (BROTHER)

Occupation: Facilities Engineer

Age: 27                                                                                   

 

Hometown: New Orleans

 

Name: HENDEKEA AZENE (SISTER)

Occupation: Aerospace Engineer

Age: 23           

Hometown: Torrance, Calif.

 

Relationship:     BROTHER/SISTER

 

            This brother sister team has all the intelligence, wits and skills to win the Race.  Although their personality differences could be the X factor.  She describes him as confrontational and emotional, while he describes her as irrational.  Both are worried that the big brother/little sister power struggle will rear its ugly head on the Race.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: KATE LEWIS

Occupation: Episcopal Clergy

Age: 49           

Hometown: Thousand Oaks, Calif.

 

Name: PAT HENDRICKSON           

Occupation: Ordained Deacon

Age: 65

Hometown: Thousand Oaks, Calif.       

 

Relationship:     MARRIED MINISTERS         

 

These lesbian Episcopal ministers dated for seven years before tying the knot three years ago.  Kate and Pat are ready for the adventure of lifetime - but don't let the collars fool you - they can play dirty too. 

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: SHANA WALL

Occupation: Actress

Age: 32

Hometown: Los Angeles

 

Name: JENNIFER Mc CALL 

Occupation:      Legal Assistant

Age: 32           

Hometown: Los Angeles

 

Relationship: FRIENDS

 

            Don't let their good looks fool you - this all-female team is ready to do whatever it takes to bring home the $1 million prize.  Shana and Jennifer met six years ago and have been friends ever since.  These women are both very competitive and eager to become the first all-female team to win the Race.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

Name: DONALD JEROUSEK

Occupation: Retired

 

 

Age: 68           

Hometown: Elkhorn, Wis.

 

Name: NICOLAS FULKS     

Occupation: Pilot

Hometown: Originally from Chicago

 

Relationship:     GRANDFATHER/ GRANDSON

 

            Nicolas started his aviation career at the age of 17 at the University of Illinois and currently works as an airline pilot based out of San Juan.  He describes himself as reliable, competitive and goofy. He describes his teammate as rough around the edges and not too accepting of people who go against his advice.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

Occupation: Volleyball coach

Age: 24                       

Hometown: Fountain Valley, Calif.

 

Relationship:     DATING       

 

            This athletic couple first met in college while living together with other friends.  Both admit they couldn't stand each other at first, but soon grew closer and started dating.  Each will tell you that they are soul mates, yet they drive each other crazy.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

Hometown: Huntington Beach, Calif.

 

Relationship:  NEWLY DATING

 

            This eccentric couple has only been dating for close to a year.  Their mothers were friends while they were growing up in Huntington Beach, Calif., yet TK and Rachel had never really spent time together until recently. They always seem to be laughing and they're eager to put their carefree relationship to the test while dealing with the rigors of the Race.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

Relationship:     SISTERS

 

            These feisty sisters describe themselves as best friends and worst enemies, but they're convinced they'll make for an unbeatable team.  Julia serves as the problem solver while Marianna is the athlete.  Both are super competitive.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

Relationship:     BEST FRIENDS

 

            These fun-loving friends are all about having a good time.  They hope their laid back approach to the Race will result in the $1 million prize.  Ari is not afraid to speak his mind, while Staella is prepared to flirt her way to the front of the pack.

                                                                                                                                                            _______________________________

 

THE AMAZING RACE 12 will send 11 teams - each comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another - on a trek around the world for approximately 30 days.  At every destination, each couple will have to compete in a series of challenges  - some mental and some physical - and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination.  Couples who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

 

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Television Studio and Amazing Race Productions.  THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

The CBS site says this:

Traveling more than 50,000 miles and crossing multiple continents in 28 days, the Teams are in a fierce race to the finish first for a shot at the million dollar prize.

I suppose this can be archived now.
Wow. This is like the Amazing Orange County race. I used to wonder who was filmed with the HB permit; I should have asked, who wasn't filmed?  :rotf:
Too many spoilers to archive  :angel: or move to the other "Talk" thread.

I agree with Slowhatch. Who did the casting for this race? Why didn't they look for teams outside Southern California? 6 out of 11 teams from Southern California is ridiculous!

I am going to make a prediction based solely on reading the bios. The first 5 teams eliminated from AR12 will include:

the brother/sister team
the father/daughter team
the married ministers (they do not remind me of Meredith and Gretchen or Fran and Barry)
the sister/sister team
one other team from Southern California

If this happens, you know which teams are left in the race, probably going into Dubrovnik?

Grandfather/Grandson
Kynt/Vyxsin
5 of the 6 Southern California teams

well--we do know that the brother/sister and father/daugher and GF/grandson team were all in Dubrovnik--which is interesting! Yay for the Dads and Granddads!

I agree with APSkip - who did this casting .....

though as long as their interesting I don't really mind where they're from.

Definitely looking forward to the goths, especially after a night in an airport or on a floor somewhere.  Imagine the makeup.

I agree, as long as the teams are interesting they could all be from the same town.

I do wonder if this was part of a budget cut though.  That they didn't go outside the so cal area for casting sessions and just relied on tapes sent in.

That would save a little money (though not much).
