Phil Keoghan promised "off-the-hook competitiveness" this season on The Amazing Race, and the finale will deliver even more so. "I do think we have four very strong and determined teams left," he tells TVGuide.com. "This will be a very exciting final leg!" On Sunday's two-hour finale (8/7c, CBS), the final four teams — ER doctors Travis and Nicole, exes Tim and Marie, dating couple Jason and Amy, and cousins/Afghanimals Leo and Jamal — race through ...
There's no crying in baseball — or on The Amazing Race mat. Baseball wives Nicky and Kim kept their tears in check after their elimination on Sunday's episode because "we knew it was coming." "Phil [Keoghan] was like, 'Why aren't you crying?' And we were like, 'Well, we've had some time to digest that we're out!" Kim tells TVGuide.com. "We had a Speed Bump and got U-Turned. Once we got U-Turned, we knew it was over." But are they upset that Tim and Marie U-Turned them? Find out below.
Amazing Race's Rowan and Shane made one comeback after another on Sunday's episode, but they couldn't overcome their own huge blunder. After some miscommunication that put them on a late bus to Santiago, Chile, Rowan botched the shoe-shining Roadblock by using an actual shoe-shiner's stand instead of the Race ones. "It was my fault. I read the clue too quickly and didn't look for the Race sneakers hanging off of them," Rowan tells TVGuide.com. "And the guy let me do it! I had no indication that it wasn't right." Still, the actors and Queens of Bingo theater performers say they have no regrets about their error-strewn leg.
Phil Keoghan promises that he isn't overselling when he describes Season 23 of The Amazing Race as the most competitive yet. "I know people probably think I say this every season, but it's true," he tells TVGuide.com. "This group is just out-of-their-minds competitive. They might be hard to top. It's so much fun, especially when we get back and we know we have good material in the can."
