Fall TV Preview

Amazing Race Cast Includes Double Amputee, Chippendales Dancers, Fabulous Beekman Boys

CBS has revealed the cast for the 21st running of The Amazing Race, and it includes a pair of Chippendales dancers (who presumably though not necessarily will wear more than bow ties as they trot the globe), a double amputee pro snowboarder, a onetime member of the heavy metal bands White Lion and Megadeth and the goat milk-farming reality stars known as “The Fabulous Beekman Boys.”

What’s more, this year’s Race touts the biggest payday ever: a grand prize of $2 million.

TAR 21 premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c. Here now, the cast:

    • I was so close to not watching this season until I saw that they’re going to be on….I love the Fabulous Beekman Boys! I hope they win…maybe Josh could finally quit his NYC job and move to the farm full time.

  • The $2 million is kind of misleading- it’ll only be given away if the team that wins the first leg ends up winning the race. It has happened 6 times (including the last two races), so it’s doable, but difficult.

  • Every time I see two blonde beauties, I keep hoping they’ll be resourceful and great players like Dustin and Kandice, but that never happens :((( I really miss girls breaking the stereotype on the race. The last girls that have actually gotten far were, you know, doctors :P That’s smart!

    • Didn’t we have a pair of female FBI Agents this last season? Or do you not think thats breaking stereotypes?

  • This looks like a much more promising group that last season! And Ryan Danz was a contestant on Martha Stewart’s Apprentice.

  • I heard Chippendale dancers and got excited… Then I saw their butterfaces and farted the excitement away.

  • 2 million pay off is nothing for what CBS is making on the show. They make a big deal of double the regular payoff of a mill.

  • Hello, I just wanted to mention, you’re wrong. Your article doesn’t make any sense.
