Yes, Fridays at 8 p.m.

 

They're trying to get the younger viewers Friday has, and avoid the sports delays, according to Phil

Keith Tollefson and Whitney Duncan were on Survivor: South Pacific. I don't remember much about them, but that was season 23. I barely remember this past season.

Kym Perfetto and Alli Forsythe: Urban Bike Racers from Brooklyn, N.Y.

 

Urban Bike Racers? What kind of occupation is that? IS it an occupation?

Depending on their skill levels, they might have sponsorships for racing. Maybe they also run a publication about it or run the races themselves. I'm sure in NYC there are a lot of opportunities for that sort of thing.

 

Or maybe they're delivery people.

 

ETA: From the account description, could this be the Kym in question?

There are posts from after the race started, but that doesn't mean someone else isn't using the account while she's away.

 

EATA: Looks like it is her because there are retweets with an Alli Forsythe: https://twitter.com/alliforsythe

The official cast bios and photos are up on the CBS site: Amazing Race cast is up: http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/photos/1002236/meet-the-cast/

 

Also new this year is "The Save." The team that finishes first in the first leg wins "The Save" that can be used to save them later if they come in last on an elimination leg and would otherwise be out of the race: http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/news/1003033/.

 

Individual team threads will be open late tonight!

From ff174's recap:

 

So, ff am sad. His eye candy was taken away.

 

Awwww! I knew as soon as it happened, you'd be sad. But still, great job on the recap! Very funny stuff!

It's been a great week - Derrick won Big Brother, a Twinnie was torch snuffed on Survivor, and the annoying pink realtors were Philiminated on TAR.
