Looking forward to it, despite the "stunt" casting.

This is one show that this very forum turned me on to, and I've really enjoyed it.

Same here. I watched two eps back to back a couple of years ago and I have been hooked ever since.

WHY cast the show like this? Would it actually be a bigger audience draw?

I think it could initially draw a slightly larger audience....and the hope would be that once you start watching it, you get hooked and watch every week (as I did last season)

This is starting to smell like those cheesy Real World/Road Rules Challenges.

Looking forward to it. As for the mole, I found celeb mole to really suck. They had a good formula going on the previous shows.

AR is my favorite reality show and as long as they don't do a Celebrity Amazing Race, I'll be happy.

Spoiler:
I don't mind having some contestants with gimmicks, that's part of the fun of AR anyway. remember the Bozos, Itchy & Scratchy, the Greedos etc.? I hope next year they bring in Boston Rob & Amber from Survivor as an AR team. It could only help the ratings.

Nice. I love The Amazing Race.
Spoiler:
Alison from Big Brother is a nice little twist too.
I also enjoy Big Brother a lot (I think I'm the only one).

Ummm, might want to spoilerize the above info, since you're referencing a post with spoiler tags...

CBS has picked up the sixth season of the Emmy-winning reality show The Amazing Race, and the show's fifth season won't even premiere until July. CBS reportedly greenlit "Race 6" at the end of March, barely a month into production of "Race 5."

Bertram van Munster and Jerry Bruckheimer executive produce "Race" in association with Touchstone Television. Variety says news that "Race" has been ordered for next season is a sign network executives are pleased with how "Race 5" turned out.

No decisions have been made about when "Race 6" will air; midseason or summer 2005 are the most likely options.
