Is this the first ever redheaded male on ANY race? I can't think of any others aside from Baggio or Thanh Phuc (whichever one it is) on Vietnam's race, and that's obviously a dye job.

Cord?

The cast looks good so far, but to be honest I like the way Season 1 was cast better: each team representing a different country.

Alumnus makes television debut on "Amazing Race: China Rush"

Former first prefect Charlie Melvoin ’05 will compete for a trip around the world worth $60,000 on Emmy-winning reality show “The Amazing Race,” which begins airing Aug. 26 in China.

On the show, teams of two people – each with pre-existing relationships – compete for the grand prize in the “China Rush.” These teams compete in different challenges throughout the race to earn clues that take them to their next destination.

Melvoin competed in the race with his freshman year roommate from Harvard University, Ryan Burke. Melvoin says they were dubbed “the Harvard boys” by their fellow competitors.

He moved to Beijing in Sept. 2011, whereas Burke was already living in Shanghai. Burke jokingly sent Melvoin an email saying they would make a great team. Months later, Melvoin chanced upon the email a day before “Amazing Race” applications were due. He submitted an application and, after three rounds of auditions and interviews with show executives, “the Harvard boys” made the cut along with 11 other teams.

“I was most excited to experience firsthand what it’s like to compete under those kinds of conditions,” Melvoin said. “The actual experience did not disappoint, exceeding my expectations with the way that it designed both fun and challenging tasks that caused the true colors of each team to shine through.”

Melvoin traces his interest in Chinese language and culture back to a trip he took there as an eighth grader at Harvard-Westlake, chaperoned by Chinese teacher Qinru Zhou. He also studied Chinese for four years, the maximum offered, during high school.

“The best part was getting the opportunity to see parts of China that I'd never otherwise have the chance to experience,” Melvoin said. “In crafting the most intriguing form of entertainment, the show relies on the local cultures of the places it goes as much as the various challenges, and so for a big China nerd like me, the chance to visit obscure parts of the country and partake in bizarre activities, while utilizing my many years of Mandarin was a real thrill.”

Melvoin and Burke now intend to apply to the American version of “The Amazing Race” as “China Rush” veterans.

The team introductions video!

Thank you to whoever uploaded it :luvya:

Also, one of the Malaysian twins has a blog with all the teams bios written by herself:
http://www.khaishing.com/search/label/Amazing%20Race%20China%20Rush%20Cast%20Revealed
It's worth reading!

My pre-season faves are:
- Janelle & Karin
- the Malaysian twins
- the Harvard dudes
- the Taiwan team
and JIA JIA & ROB :hoot:

ETA: I've watch a few vids on the China's Got Talent cousins, and I'm starting to like them a little bit more. I think they've made it to my pre-season faves list! I crossed out the Harvard dudes because Ryan is starting to annoy me with his seriousness :/
