I am – Hercules!!
A safety with the St. Louis Cardinals 30 years ago, Ken Greene will join his estranged wife to face off against a pair of comic-book geeks in the 13th edition of “The Amazing Race,” premiering on CBS Sept. 28. The comic-book guys may not be the biggest nerds after the prize. A pair of frat brothers from Arizona State are dubbed “Team Superbad” by their rivals. Other competitors include an ancient hippy couple, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and her singer-actor brother, and – of course – a pair of hot blondes named Brooke and Marisa. Meet “Team Superbad” and the people who stand between them and a million dollars here. 8 p.m. Sunday. CBS.

    Please cut down on the time in airports!

    by Flim Springfield

    I want to see a race around the world, see the different sights and cultures, but half the show is spent in airports.

    If those chicks are considered the "hot ones" this season...

    by ShiftyEyedDog2

    then we apparently get NO "hot" team this year.

    Too much TV...head will explode

    by INWOsuxRED

    Football, Football, Football(night in America),Amaaaaazing Race, Dexter, Mad Men. Too bad the games this week are a bit of a letdown compared to the last 3 weeks, but still an amazing day of television for me and my television.

    Yay, Amazing Race!!

    by theBigE

    How long has it been since the last season ended? Welcome Back! There's a reason it wins the Emmys every year - best reality-game show on TV! The Office is back on, now all we need is for 30 Rock and Lost to return, and life is good!

    The ones who call themselves "hot" usually aren't.

    by Flim Springfield

    The other "regular" girls are usually hotter.

    Amazing Race Asia started 3 weeks ago

    Hottest one is the sister!

    by Ka Dargo

    Blondes aren't even close to being hot. The sister and the other brunette(the team of bitter divorced chicks) are the hot ones. And of course you know the hot sister is gonna end up bangin' the pretty boy.

    Which team got booted off last night?

    by indyjonez100

    Tivo cut off the last few minutes because the football game went long.

  • Sept. 29, 2008, 7:55 a.m. CST

    another note about the chicks on here

    by indyjonez100

    the blondes not so much but the sister and the two divorce es are definitely way hotter then the two blondes.

    Older hippies were eliminated last night

    by STLost

    Plus what about the new couple from NYC? She's the workaholic corporate woman and he's the free-spirited (ie, slacker) man. All I saw him do last night was whine. Waaa, she's talking to the single hot dude (probably more grown up than you!). Waaa, she's talking while we're going down a net. Grow a pair!

  • Sept. 29, 2008, 9:32 a.m. CST

    I agree STLost

    by indyjonez100

    Nobody went with the older Hippies to a second location did they? Thanks for the info, I was getting tired of her husband, constantly whining it seemed like. Like you said, grow a pair and get a real job already.

    That whiney guy needs to go

    by jim

    "as soon as we got to the checkpoint she starts talking to other teams. I need her to connect with me, sooth me, comfort me" or something like that.

    The Amazing Race Asia

    by doctordebug

    Looking forward to S3, after a rather shaky season 1 season 2 rivaled the best US seasons.

    Too bad about the hippies

    by The McPoyle Clan

    I would have rooted for them. Besides the whiny guy, the football player's wife needs to go, or shut her trap. No wonder they're separated; she'd drive anyone crazy.

  • Sept. 30, 2008, 10:25 a.m. CST

    How many times did the football guy tell us

    by jim

    he cheated on his wife? It got to the point I thought he was bragging. From listening to the two of them it sounds like they believe the only problem with their marriage is he cheated. Way to treat the symptoms not the disease.
