The Amazing Race Season 12 Cast Announced
Now that Viva Laughlin has gone to that big TV graveyard in the sky, the show’s Sunday night timeslot is open, and CBS is ready to premiere the 12th season of five-time Emmy winner The Amazing Race in its place on Nov. 4 (8 p.m. ET).
The network has just revealed the cast for the new season, which includes a father/daughter team, a dating couple who are both Goths, a pair of married lesbian ministers, a grandfather/grandson duo, two pairs of siblings and a pair of friends, one of whom, Shana Wall, was once rumored to be dating Ryan Seacrest. – Kimberly Potts
