Interested to find out who will be competing in season 19 of Amazing Race? Well, we have the goods — Olympians, football players, lifeguards, oh my!
Host Phil Keoghan told People, “I’m not sure we’ve ever had a season like this where there are so many proven athletes.”
Phil added, “There is also a lot of effort put forth to make athletes’ lives easier so they can perform. But on The Amazing Race all those things are not taken care of. They’re not going to eat what they want, sleep when they want – and they are doing it with someone else.”
