UPDATED: According to Reality Blurred, the cast won’t just be made up of Big Brother alums. The season will be a mix of BB teams and former Amazing Race teams. So, kind of a Big Brother, Amazing Race all-stars hybrid.
The Amazing Race winners Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf who met on Big Brother last season, may be responsible for CBS considering an all Big Brother cast for the upcoming season.
According to TMZ:
Sources close to production of ‘Amazing Race’ tell TMZ … the show reached out to several past “Big Brother” houseguests and has locked down its list of competitors for the new season, which will begin filming soon.
We’re told the all-“Big Brother” edition of ‘Amazing Race’ will feature at least one past ‘BB’ winner, but several other popular winners declined for family or career reasons. Still, we’re told CBS is happy with the final cast … and they’re ready to race around the world.
Our sources say the idea for the “Big Brother”-themed season of ‘Amazing Race’ came from the success of season 30, which saw former ‘BB’ stars Cody and Jessica dominate.
So watch out for that. I wonder how the cast will be paired up. Will it be Big Brother cast members and a partner of their choosing? Or will CBS attempt pair up friends/frenemies/strangers from past seasons?
