On Burnie and Ashley's video they said there will be a live stream of the first leg! PS. Not sure if this is the right thread?

The announcement on cbs.com/TAR/Other is that it is a live stream of the Start Line, not the entire first leg.

This story does some analysis as to why this season of TAR is all internet stars. I found it interesting and makes some good points about how the show has been headed this way for a few seasons now.

Why CBS Is Loading ‘The Amazing Race’ With Social Media Stars

TV | By Mikey Glazer on November 11, 2015 @ 4:56 pm

Season 28 of reality contest will send “social media influencers” including Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl running around the world

President Obama drafted LGBT icon Tyler Oakley to talk health care at the White House and now CBS is sending him abroad to represent the U.S.

Oakley and 21 other social media stars will race around the world on latest edition of “The Amazing Race.”

The 10-time Emmy-winning reality franchise is sending 11 teams of social media influencers — YouTubers, Viners, Gamers and Instagram models — out into the wild for Season 28, which will begin shooting at an undisclosed location in the coming days.

This is as close as “Race” producers have come to an all-celebrity season, with some of these personalities already household names (Oakley, “Magic Viner” Zach King, Vine teen heartthrob Cole LaBrant) and some with more niche followings online (Instagram models Jessica Versteeg and Brittany Oldehoff).

It’s a natural move for the show’s creators — creator/executive producer couple Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster (above), host/producer Phil Keoghan and casting director Lynne Spillman —  who have inched closer and closer to casting all-out media professionals over the past few years.

Last spring, the “Race” flirted with the idea of social media stars, casting fashion blogger Jenny Wu (“GoodBadandFab.com”) who diligently pre-loaded three weeks worth of content to publish on a timer as she was traveling around the world.

That season had the biggest casting tweak to date, welcoming five “blind date” couples who met at the starting line, a noisy tweak that brought needed attention to the show’s schedule shift to Friday nights after years in the coveted the Sunday night spot.

The currently airing season of “The Amazing Race” is dominated with performers and media professionals. The group includes two personalities who appear daily on the TMZ TV show, two local newscasters, two additional paparazzi (beyond the TMZ pair), two full-time street performers who previously appeared on multiple other reality shows, two women who were professional NFL cheerleaders, two male models, and a couple who made a viral video about “The Amazing Race” itself.

It makes sense that instead of dancing around the edges of the pool of performance-oriented people who are media-adjacent, producers would dive in head first with prominent names like Oakley, who has his own feature film coming out next month.

In another first, host/producer Keoghan will stream live video from the first leg of the show on his Facebook feed this Sunday, Nov. 15 at approximately 7:30 p.m. PT.

An avid cycler who spends his off-seasons recreating the Tour de France on a vintage 1938 bike, Keoghan is also a regular live tweeter during Friday night airings of the show and has co-hosted viewing parties in L.A. where fans and alums could come and watch the show.

This “live look in” is part of an ongoing strategy by both Doganieri/van Munster and CBS to give fans greater access. After sequestering the show in secrecy for most of their runs, “The Amazing Race” has recently done two “open to the public” starting line segments, one in Times Square and one on Venice Beach (above).

Jeff Probst, and Mark Burnett staged a nationwide two-week vote-on campaign last May for the currently airing season of “Survivor,” letting fans choose the entire cast from a pool of 32 returning favorites.

While remaining vigilant about the series being spoiler-free, the inclusion of returning players and social media stars whose lives are on-going reality shows followed by millions of fans raises the degree of difficulty in keeping a lid on the “early boots” for months, when they are likely to reemerge online or in the public.

As for their casting, CBS had the contestants announce the news themselves on their channels 30 minutes before an embargo lifted for other media. The social engineers are driving the train and CBS is laying the track.

Here’s who’s in the driver’s seat for the upcoming season.

    Tyler Oakley (7.7 million subscribers) and podcast pal Korey Kuhl

    Rooster Teeth COO Burnie Burns (8.2 million subscribers) and girlfriend, Ashley
 
   Clevver TV hosts Erin White Robinson and Joslyn Davis

    Vine teen heartthrob Cole LaBrant (6.5 million followers) and mother, Sheri

    Magic Viner Zach King (3.7 million followers) and wife, Rachel   

    Dance video super stars Dana Borriello and Matt Steffanina (2.4 million Youtube subscribers)

   Instagram models Jessica Versteeg and Brittany Oldehoff (in the low end, with only 60,000 followers together)

    Viral video star Marty Cobb and daughter, Hagan Parkman (Cobb’s flight attendant safety demonstration video netted over 22 million views online)

    Beauty Youtuber Blair Fowler (1.7 million subscribers) and dad, Scott

    Pro Frisbee players Kurt Gibson and Brodie Smith (1 million followers)

    Brothers Cameron and Darius Benson (3 million Vine followers)

YouTube, Vine and Instagram Stars Invade ‘The Amazing Race’
 

By
 Georgia Wells
 
Instagram and YouTube stars race against each other to win millions of followers on the Internet. Now they are going to race against each other around the globe.

CBS  on Wednesday unveiled the teams for the 28th season of “The Amazing Race,” and they include social-media stars from Vine, YouTube, Instagram and podcasts.

The production team for “The Amazing Race” focuses on finding teams with a combination of chemistry and drama. If the contestants came with a large social-media following too, well that only sweetens the deal, executive producer Bertram van Munster said.

The sizes of the contestants’ followers vary drastically, from thousands to millions. Combined, the contestants have seen more than 72 million hits on their social-media sites. No word on how much trash-taking might be encouraged, or whether any alliances will be formed based on platform. There are many more teams with influence on Alphabet’s YouTube than Twitter's Vine  or Facebook or Instagram.

“The Amazing Race” certainly isn’t the first TV show or movie to discover talent online. Comedians are often discovered on Twitter and YouTube, while aspiring models can be found on Instagram. Michelle Phan, for example, started posting beauty videos on YouTube in 2007. After amassing millions of followers, she became a spokeswoman for the French perfume maker Lancome.

Still, the choice by “The Amazing Race” producers to seek contestants with large followings online reflects the growing importance of social media: It’s no longer a back door to stardom, but a necessary tool to land a first interview. It’s also the latest example of how tech culture is spreading.

“The network said it is time we get social media involved in a much bigger way,” Mr. van Munster said. He expects that the contestants’ built-in presence online and plugs for the show will create buzz in between episodes.

Not only in between episodes, but during them. TV shows are increasingly finding ways to engage viewers who multitask on a second screen while they watch. “The Amazing Race” is planning to have host Phil Keoghan stream live video on Facebook from the race’s first destination. The new season gets going Nov. 15. The online hits are already underway.

“If we can get more viewers that would be great; if we get more platform viewers on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook that would be even better,” Mr. van Munster said.

Keoghan told Mashable that the social media stars will make the show "even more entertaining."

"We live in such an exciting time. Technology is evolving so quickly, sometimes it feels like we're actually living in the future," Keoghan said in an email statement. "The way we source our news, entertainment, interests … and the personalities we meet online, just would not have been possible a few years ago. We've decided to give a group of the world's biggest social media stars a chance to share the world with audiences like never before."
