‘The Amazing Race’ Season 22 SPOILERS: New Cast and New Twist Revealed!



Filed under : Celebrity News

The Amazing Race’ Season 22 hits our screens on February 17. This time the teams will have a new twist to contend with at the very start, and we will see a few semi-celebrities compete for the prize.

The cast includes Jennifer Kuhle and Caroline Cutbirth from the country band Stealing Angels. Kuhle is the granddaughter of John Wayne while Cutbirth is a direct descendant of Daniel Boone so they have plenty of country credentials.

They will be competing against former NHL player Bates Battaglia and his brother Anthony, as well as YouTube channel hosts Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena who, give their job, should be pretty entertaining, I’m hoping.

Also among the elevn new teams of two competing is a pair of twin doctors, two roller derby moms, and a father and son who have both survived cancer.

This season on “The Amazing Race” the teams will travel over 30,000 miles through nine countries on five different continents. In its pre-season publicity, CBS says the contestants will have to “skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland.”

So what will the promised new twist be? Previously, the first team to arrive at the initial Pit Stop has earned an Express Pass that allows them to skip any task of their choosing; this season, the team that arrives before all others at this season’s first Pit Stop will receive TWO Express Passes — one to keep for themselves and another one that must be given to another team of their choosing before the end of the fourth leg.

You can bet that will make one team extremely happy and the other teams pretty angry at not being chosen to get the pass. Way to ramp up the antagonism, guys! I love it!
