Thanks to a break in March, this season of The Amazing Race has seemed incredibly long. It’s all coming to an end tonight, however, with the four final teams heading to Dallas in hopes of winning one million dollars. Will Mike and Rochelle manage to hang on despite their underdog status? Will Hayley and Blair continue to be the show’s unlikely front runners? It’s time to find out!
His dream of becoming a Survivor contestant finally came true. After years of applying, he landed a spot on the shores of Nicaragua as one of 18 castaways competing for $1 million on Survivor: Worlds Apart. But when the show started airing, Dan Foley says his Survivor dream became a nightmare. In a season with so much time focused on nastiness instead of strategy, Dan found himself a target of backlash from viewers and fellow castaways. In my one-on-one interview with Dan, he says CBS did him wrong and addresses all the drama. Plus, does he think Shirin Oskooi deserves to compete on Survivor: Second Chance next season? All that and so much more inside!
If the current season of Amazing Race has proven anything, it’s that couples make better teams when they barely know each other. After all, athletic ability was not enough to keep Aly and Steve in the race…and amazing cooperation didn’t really do it for Matt and Ashley. Only one established couple is left and they haven’t even been dating all that long. Will Mike and Rochelle make it to the finale? We can only hope!
If they didn’t vote him out, Tyler Fredrickson says he was going to win Survivor: Worlds Apart. But his game was cut short at the final seven. In my one-on-one chat with Tyler, he revealed who he was planning on taking to the end, explained why Carolyn was his next target despite being such close allies and discussed who he hopes viewers will vote to bring back on Survivor: Second Chance. Plus, he talked about who was picked over him to compete on a previous season. Enjoy!
“We are doing something truly historic,” host Jeff Probst said at the close of this week’s Survivor: Worlds Apart episode. “We are turning the show over to you.” For the first time ever, fans have a helping hand in the casting process for season 31, currently known as Survivor: Second Chance. From Wednesday, May 6 until 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 20 (finale night), fans can vote for their picks of who they want to play the game again. Find out who is among the former castaways eligible for the vote inside this article.
Somebody bring out the cake and presents! It’s Rodney’s birthday! But there was no celebration or party. Nope. Instead, Rodney spent the day angrily complaining about his Reward challenge misfortunes on Survivor: Worlds Apart. His pouting sprouted a plan that he thought was solid enough to get Mike out of the game at last.
When The Amazing Race first announced that it would be highlighting blind date couples, the show’s Facebook fans worried that their favorite series would transform into another version of The Bachelor. Fortunately, this has not proven to be the case, in part because there is not enough chemistry between most of the blind date racers to facilitate a Bachelor level of romantic drama. In fact, according to the recently eliminated Matt and Ashley, it is all but impossible to find love on The Amazing Race.
Things are getting physical on The Amazing Race, but not in the way you might think. After all, Matt, Ashley, Mike and Rochelle are the only couples left with any semblance of chemistry, which makes sense — they weren’t blind dates! The remaining contestants will get their hearts racing with the help of Fitbits. Will this prove an interesting twist in The Amazing Race? Or just another gimmick?
Shirin Oskooi had a whirlwind experience on Survivor: Worlds Apart. From her crazy commentary about witnessing monkey sex, to bringing domestic violence issues to light, her time on the show is among the most memorable this season. In my one-on-one interview with Shirin, she explained what was the most powerful moment in the game for her before revealing her thoughts on Dan getting backlash from viewers for the way he treated her. Plus, she described how she ultimately landed on season 30 with a complete play-by-play of why that monkey sex was so great to watch. This is, by far, the best, most entertaining interview I’ve done all season long. I think you’re going to enjoy this one a lot!
