Survivor which is in its 20th season will debut a “Heroes vs. Villains” All Star game in its 2 hour premier Thursday, Feb. 11 while the 16th season of “The Amazing Race” will follow three nights later on Sunday, Feb. 14. Great news Big Brother fans, as we reported earlier, both Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will appear as participants on the next season of The Amazing Race.
CBS also plans to air a special on Feb 4th currently called “Surviving Survivor”. This special will take a look at past contestants and memorable moments on the series.
The fifteenth season of the Amazing Race finale aired last night with dating couple Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney emerging as the $1,000,000 winners.
Meghan, a 23-year-old account executive from San Diego, CA, and boyfriend Cheyne, a 23-year-old student also from San Diego, beat two other couples to the finish line by being quickest to count out $1 million worth of chips at a Las Vegas casino. Bickering brothers, Dan and Sam McMillen, who recently revealed to each other that they’re gay, came in second place. Finishing in third place were Ericka Dunlap, former Miss America 2004, and her husband, Brian Kleinschmidt.
“The whole experience in itself was life-changing, and the money is not even as important as what we got to do together. It was the perfect race. It could not have been any better,” said Cheyne.
“This is absolutely a dream come true,” Meghan said of her win.
The new and upcoming season of the Amazing Race started filming last week, and as we reported earlier, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will be participating.
Witnesses spotted both Jeff and Jordan at the Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday with numerous other teams. Big Brother fan, Danielle Varey, was able to snap a picture of the couple at LAX and posted it to her Twitter account . As you can see, they’re dressed in the familiar Amazing Race uniform of color-coordinated shirts, sweats and backpacks. The photo is below.
Another confirmation is the fact that Jeff has yet to update his twitter account since the 22nd of November. We also reported back in October that both Jeff & Jordan confirmed they were officially a couple. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out on the new season of the Amazing Race.
CBS is not commenting on this story. The network says it will announce the full cast for the new season next year, closer to the show’s airdate.
