The Amazing Race 25 Full Cast List, New Twist


The 25th cycle of The Amazing Race airs this fall on CBS at a new day and time: Fridays at 8/9 PM.   The race kicked off early Saturday morning (5/31) from Times Square in New York City.  It’s the same spot the very first Amazing Race teams began their trek  in spring 2001.

Cast members, Keith Tollefson and Whitney Duncan from Tennessee, were cast members of  Survivor South Pacific.  The two had an affair on the show that ended her marriage. Whitney divorced and now she and Keith are engaged. (Via RealityBlurred)

Also, according to witnesses at the race this morning, there’s a new twist that gives teams immunity from elimination. The first team to check in after the first leg wins the immunity and can only be used until the ninth leg. (Via Reality Blurred)
