Post by: georgiapeach on September 27, 2017, 12:49:03 PM
Quote
It will be a live event, as CBS is inviting fans of the duo (otherwise known as Jody) to witness them take off at Washington Square Park (Fifth Ave. and Waverly Place) in New York on Sunday, Oct. 1. The public start will begin at 11:30 a.m. and as of now Jessica and Cody are the only names being revealed for The Amazing Race's upcoming 30th season.


The Amazing Race is adding another Big Brother couple to its roster.

Showmance duo and fan-favorites Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson are moving from the Big Brother house to The Amazing Race starting line.

Trying to figure out if it's starting at the arch or the fountain. The railings are near the arch, but the logo is drawn near the fountain. Maybe start at one and a task at the other?

Evidently someone called "bigbropinions" is live streaming the start.  I saw a tweet on another board from ThatDame Lana that has linked the streaming.  So far they are focusing on "Team Jody" since they are BB fans.

Evidently someone called "bigbropinions" is live streaming the start.  I saw a tweet on another board from ThatDame Lana that has linked the streaming.  So far they are focusing on "Team Jody" since they are BB fans.

Thank you!! I'm watching it there! :)

I did find a picture of Conor Daly and he does look like one of the racers, but I can find pictures of that team now. Not sure about Alex Rossi.
The Indy Car season appears to have ended 2 weeks ago, so this would likely be a good time for them.

I did!  She came up behind me to try and get a glimpse of the action while I was standing close to the arch.  We got to talk for a couple minutes, but she left soon after.

She was with her kids (I would assume), and wasn't a big fan of the amount of crowds there, so she opted to take the kids to the playground instead of stick around.

I didn't take a picture with her because I felt it rude to do so with her family there and all.

I'd say it was around 12pm or so that I saw her, just before Justin and Diana turned up.
