TAR 23: CBS Press Cast reveal

 CBS ANNOUNCES THE CAST FOR THE NEXT INSTALLMENT OF THE NINE-TIME EMMY AWARD-WINNING SERIES, “THE AMAZING RACE,” PREMIERING SUNDAY, SEPT. 29
    Teams Racing Around the Globe This Fall Include Former NFL Teammates, Married ER Doctors, NHL Ice Crew Girls, Theater Performers and More





CBS announced today the 11 teams that will embark on a sprint around the globe for $1 million dollars on the new season of THE AMAZING RACE, premiering Sunday, Sept. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Emmy Award winner Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan) is the host.

THE AMAZING RACE has won the Emmy Award for “Outstanding Reality-Competition Program” nine times in the past 10 years.  Currently, the series is nominated for its 10th Emmy in this category.   

This season, which marks the 23nd race around the world for the series, will bring back the Double Express Pass twist that was introduced last season, in which the first Team to check in at the first pit stop will earn two “Express Passes” — one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another Team by the end of the fifth leg of the Race.

As Teams travel through four continents and nine countries, spanning more than 35,000 miles, they will paraglide high above the skies of Iquique, Chile, subject themselves to a bone-chilling plunge in Norway and buckle up for Formula One Racing in Abu Dhabi.    
This season’s diverse cast includes former NFL teammates, married ER doctors, theater performers, childhood friends, baseball wives, cousins and more.

I'm not sure how I feel about this cast so far. I am just getting really tired of all the semi-celebrities being cast, and this season certainly has no shortage of them. I think this time I'll be rooting for all the "average Joe" teams to win.

Interesting to hear about the Express Pass twist returning. I'm interested to see how things play out this time. The real question is whether the team will follow the precedent set by last season (making a pact and then changing their minds) or doing something entirely different.

Last season, there was an agreement that was never honored and on TAR Canada, there was a similar agreement that wasnt honored and both times, karma came back to the team that didnt honor their word.

Whatever it is, as long as the EP twist doesn't go to waste. At least not as bad as last time!
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on
