Ex-Dolphin Cheerleaders Join Cast of Amazing Race
Cara Rosenthal and Jaime Edmondson, former Miami Dolphins cheerleaders who are one of 11 teams competing on the 14th installment of "The Amazing Race" on CBS.
Cast members on "The Amazing Race" endure 40,000 miles, nine countries and some of the craziest challenges ever. 11 teams will compete this season, ranging from a father and son, to a pair of sibling lawyers, and two stuntmen who are 4-foot-9.
But only one team will win $1 million, can two former Dolphin cheerleaders do it?
"I definitely do think there's a stigma attached to cheerleaders," said Cara Rosenthal. "But I don't think Jamie or I went in with a chip because we know who we are and what it is to be a Miami Dolphins cheerleader."
Rosenthal spent three seasons cheering for the Dolphins. Jamie Edmundson spent six. Even though these two look alike, they are not sisters. But they make a great team and balance each other out.
"For me, I am focused on what I need to do and then I need to move on," said Edmundson. "Whereas Cara would say it would be so great if you could help us out with this. I needed someone to do that."
And make no mistake; these pretty ladies are tough. If they can handle some tumultuous times on the field and the Dolphins seven-year playoff drought, they can handle this.
"There's a certain power behind being positive and going out there and giving it your all no matter the circumstances you're faced with," said Rosenthal. "Was one harder than the other? I think they were both hard, they were all gut wrenching and heart breaking."
The girls are having a watch party at my colleague's restaurant in Davie, Kim Bokamper's. So all that's left is to sit back, relax, and watch the show.
