No, it’s not an April Fool’s Joke. CBS actually did NOT scrap this season of The Amazing Race and pretend it never happened. Unfortunately.

Even more unfortunate, we have to relive the horrible last Leg in the recap, have to sit through the Opening Credits of Doom AND have Phil clench his teeth and ask “Are we allowed to talk about Race romance?”

After a loud scream from Cole, teams learn they’re flying to Yerevan, Armenia. Continue reading

Phil declares this to be a “very special” season of The Amazing Race because it features “social media influencers.” Okay.

And to make it even more special, instead of a traditional Starting Line, teams will pretend they are on Big Brother by waiting at home to get a video message from Phil on their brand new? (though not provided with promotional consideration) Microsoft/Nokia Lumia phones.

Phil says he’s waiting for them at the Monument of the Revolution in Mexico City and that teams must hurry to the nearest airport to get there. They all run outside to the waiting cabs. Continue reading
