Our top moments of the week:
11. Worst Reminder: When Tamra and Vicki head South of the Border to Cabo San Lucas on The Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra decides to "do as the Cabo-nians do" and do a body shot at the poolside bar. She urges her friend to do the same, but Vicki is far too mortified and reminds Tamra that she's the mother of four. Well, we guess someone has to teach them eventually, right?
10. Skating on Thin Ice Award: There's a time and a place to speak your mind, Bethenny, and your first practice session ...
Even though the needle-in-a-haystack tea-identifying Roadblock on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business brought him to tears and took him four hours to complete, Luke Adams says it was not as hard as the final memory task in the Season 14 finale. "The surfboards were much harder," he tells TVGuide.com. "It was just much harder because [my mom Margie and I] were so close to winning!" This time around, he was thisclose to throwing in the towel.
It's time to hit the road again on The Amazing Race — with plenty of familiar faces. The CBS reality hit returns Sunday with 11 veteran teams who had never won before to settle, as the season's subtitle says, some Unfinished Business.
"These are teams that have been so incredibly popular that it was an opportunity to bring back some favorite teams that have favorite stories," host Phil Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "They're teams that have really been walking around with the 'woulda, coulda, shoulda' ever since they got kicked off. It's like, enough moaning; come back and give it another shot and no more excuses."

But casting Unfinished Business — the show's second all-star outing after Season 11 — was as hard as designing the Race itself. For one, Season 13 wound up not being represented at all, even though fan favorites Toni and Dallas, who lost their passports, seemed like shoo-ins. "It really comes down to whether you think that story of theirs is really stronger than that of anyone we've got," Keoghan says. "There are a lot of other teams, but I feel pretty confident that the teams we've got have the best stories and the best motivation for coming back."
So why are these 11 also-rans the cream of the crop? Keoghan explains the show's picks below.
