CBS Press Release:
BIGGER PREMIERE, FASTER COURSE,
ONE TEAM GOES HOME BEFORE LEAVING THE STARTING LINE
CBS Announces the 12 Teams Racing in the 15th Installment Of The
Emmy Award-Winning Series “The Amazing Race” Premiering on Sept. 27
CBS today announced the 12 Teams set to compete in THE AMAZING RACE 15, which premieres with a special two-hour episode on Sunday, Sept. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 2009 Emmy Award nominee, Phil Keoghan, is the host.
Contestants will travel one of the fastest courses ever assembled on the Race — spanning eight countries in just 21 days. Season 15 also features the quickest elimination in the history of the series, sending one Team home before they leave the starting line. Teams fortunate enough to avoid the surprise elimination and compete for the $ 1 million prize will face the “Switchback,” which sends Teams back to the site of one of the series’ most infamous Roadblocks, as well as a surprise appearance by one of America’s most beloved entertainers, a visit to the world’s tallest building and a spicy twist on a Japanese game show.Details

Last night was Part 1 of the 3 part final HOH competition. It started immeditaly after Michele Noonan’s eviction. The competition was called “Log Jam” and the concept was for the contestants to hang onto a key that was strung up over them, while walking on a log that spun.
They also had wind, leaves, rain, “snow” and even ice thrown at them; whilst production had fun making the log spin in different directions, at different paces and even stopping/starting it suddenly.
Now here’s the thing. At the start of the competition Julie Chen stated that the contestants had to have at least one hand HOLDING the key at all times, or they’d be disqualified. At various points during the competition, Natalie was observed shaking and flexing one hand, hanging on with the other BUT, if you take a look at the two pictures shown below, you’ll see that she was hanging onto the ROPE and NOT the key itself. It appears as though her pinky or glove was touching the key, BUT noone can tell us that this constitutes her actually hanging onto the key.
Thanks to our very own member YoYo for bringing this up in today’s lfu’s (post #17)! There are going to be six members of the Big Brother 11 jury, and thusly there’s a strong chance for a tie in the end voting, for the winner of Big Brother 11. This is due to Chima’s expulsion from the Big Brother house (thanks Chima! Your one accomplishment in the game, well wait, two. #1 – You’re no longer there and #2 – Because you’re not there, we get to cast your vote.).
So, since we, America, get to cast a vote too, in case of a tie presumably it made us wonder (after YoYo brought it up)……shouldn’t we get the full privileges of being a jury member? And that privilege?Details
Natalie Martinez, probably the most hated houseguest in Big Brother’s 11 season history, will not win Big Brother 11. America cheers!
How, you say, when she’s played such a brilliant manipulative, lying, scheming game, only really requiring her to win one competition so far? You say some might see that as true skill, something that should be honored with the 500K, even if she is destestable.Details
With the veto competition over this week, and Kevin’s the winner (and if you’re reading this then obviously you know we have spoilers) it comes down to either Jordan or Michele being evicted Tuesday.
Kevin now has that choice and could potentially guarantee himself final two, but at this point, he would have to actually play for himself. Question is, will he? (And don’t get me wrong, my personal opinion is that I want Jordan to stay because I’ve been a JeJo fan from the start and am still heartbroken over Jeff leaving BUT read on for why he should evict her should he want a 100% guaranteed chance to get to final 2.)Details
Morning discussion in our live feed update thread today had an interesting topic, could Natalie be the most hated houseguest ever in Big Brother history?
In the 11 seasons of Big Brother we’ve seen our share of villians, ranging from the first season’s Will Mega, all the way up to BB8′s Evel Dick. While some were despised for their nature, and others for their gameplay, it was truly varied. Register and vote now here for which houseguest from any season you hated the most.Details
Yakksters, those of you who got to see tonight’s show might have caught the slight change in what word was used to describe what’s hidden behind the HOH door! On Thursday, Julie told us we’d find out on Sunday. Well, we hit Sunday and didn’t get a thing about it! At the end of tonight’s…Details
