The 2010 Amazing Race season premiere is coming, and CBS has released the Amazing Race teams information today. The Amazing Race season premiere will air Sunday, September 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS. Keep in mind that the 8:30 p.m. PST/EST start time is a shift from the past, when the show would debut at 8 p.m. The cast will also include 11 teams of two, all battling it out in a race around the world for the $1 million prize that is awarded in the season finale. Below is some of the information about the 2010 cast, including their professions before coming on the show.
This is season 17 of The Amazing Race, and also the first year that the show will come out after not winning the Emmy Award in its category. The streak of wins came to an end when Top Chef pulled out a surprise win at the 2010 Emmy Awards.
2010 Amazing Race Teams
*Brook and Claire — Home shopping hosts from San Diego and Reno.
*Gary and Mallory — This is the father-daughter team, and Gary is an entrepreneur, while Mallory is Miss Kentucky 2009.
*Michael and Kevin — The father-son team this season from Sugar Land, Texas, with Michael as a software consultant and Kevin as a student and internet entertainer.
*Nick and Vicki — A bartender and hair stylist from Henderson, Nevada that are currently dating.
*Connor and Jonathan — Princeton students that are also Ivy League A Cappella singers.
*Nat and Kat — Doctors and friends living in Scottsdale, Arizona and Santa Monica, California.
*Ron and Tony — Best friends from Los Angeles and Tucson; Ron is a director and choreographer, while Tony is a doctoral student at the University of Arizona.
*Jill and Thomas — A hair stylist and an ad sales director from Marina Del Rey, California that are dating.
*Andie and Jenna — Birth mother and daughter from Georgia that are brought together for the show.
*Chad and Stephanie — An operations manager and hair stylist from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida that are newly dating.
*Katie and Rachel — Beach volleyball partners from New Jersey that certainly appear to have a physical advantage this season.
There are certainly some interesting teams in the mix this season, with several teams young and athletic looking that could have a really big advantage right out of the gate. It seems like the team of Katie and Rachel could be the earlier favorites this season, and that there are a few couples that just look like they are ready to bring some drama this year. With the season premiere of Amazing Race coming up very soon, it will get fans back into the race. Some might think that hair stylists get extra points in the application process based on these bios though.
