But those rascally producers of the original series threw a wrench into our plans. And the plans of all those spoiler folks who watch for teams racing around the world. The teams for Season 25 of Amazing Race were announced on May 31, the same day the teams actually started racing. The race started in NYC, a nice break from all those recent starts in LA. And a smart move to get announce the teams in order ahead of the bloggers, etc. May 31 is also Phil's birthday.
So quickly here are the teams, the official list from the CBS TAR site. Some you may know from Survivor, some you may know from pro wrestling, some from pro surfing. Some seem to be just folks. Also note the change in date for show, Fridays. Man, that's disappointing. Friday is a dead zone and hopefully, CBS isn't trying to kill of one of it's marquee reality shows by putting it there.
