Amazing Race's Daniel and Jordan: First-Class Move "Made All the Difference in the World"

Dan Pious, Jordan Pious

It became a battle of the brothers at the end of The Amazing Race 16, with the Rhode Island-bred Daniel, 25, and Jordan Pious, 23, edging out cowboys Jet and Cord for the $1 million — without any advantage from cutting in line at the airport. "We were in the same exact plane at the same exact time, all middle seats in three consecutive rows. Caite and Brent, who were first to get tickets, were in the row furthest from the front," Dan tells TVGuide.com. "If people want to be up-in-arms about cutting, I can understand that, but don't think that it affected the Race. ... And Cord did a good job of getting revenge and distracting me at the virtual challenge, so I guess we're even." It was, rather, the move up to first class that ensured the Piouses a lead that they never relinquished. So how did they smooth-talk their way up front?

Evan Lysacek

Evan Lysacek has to do a futuristic cha-cha on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but he doesn't want to look too far ahead after that. "I'm having the time of my life. I'm already starting to dread the morning I wake up and I don't have a new dance to learn and I don't have a performance that night on the ice," the Olympic champ, who's simultaneously touring with Stars on Ice, tells TVGuide.com. "It's really like a family here and it's something I never really had in skating because it's such an individual sport. I'm so glad I'm doing both." Lysacek, who got the season's first perfect score of 30 last week, is doubling up on dances too, as he must also perform a waltz. Does he feel pressure to maintain perfection?

Is Michael Trucco More Than the Other Guy in Castle's Love Triangle?


Michael Trucco knows a thing or two about being "that guy" in a TV love triangle.

Castle's Stana Katic: Beckett's ready to tango with new love interest

Trucco's Samuel Anders came between romantic leads Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff) and Lee "Apollo" Adama (Jamie Bamber) on Battlestar Galactica. Now on Castle, Trucco plays Detective Tom Demming, an increasingly powerful wedge between Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Beckett (Stana Katic).

But Trucco tells TVGuide.com there's more to his role on Castle than creating another obstacle to a Castle-Beckett pairing. "It's an interesting plot device to enter in a third wheel — it always helps raise the stakes for all parties involved. But often, those characters can be one-dimensional," Trucco says. "What I like about Demming is he's actually a good guy. There's some sincerity in this character and I think he's genuine in his feelings for Beckett.

"He checks with Castle first," Trucco continues, recalling one of his character's first scenes... read more
