Here come Steve and Allie, a father-daughter team from Southern California. Steve is apparently a professional baseball coach who led the Phillies to a World Series victory. I'll take his word for that. He says baseball takes you away from home seven months a year, so this is some major quality time with his daughter. Perhaps this will be a chance for him to give her a little personality.
Dan and Jordan, brothers from Rhode Island, hop off the bus in mixy-matchy yellow, blue, and black. This is going to be one of those teams that it takes me a while to tell apart, I can already tell. Dan says he and Jordan are a lot alike, but also different. "I am gay, surprise," Jordan interviews. "I am not," Dan hastens to add. Jordan says, "Gay all the way. Gay is the only way." Dan disagrees. Ooh, tension already!
Next are Dana and Adrian. They are high school sweethearts who have been married seventeen years, but they are no strangers to failure. Adrian says he put all their savings into a business that tanked. "Having gone through so much, we're gonna use that to our advantage winning this race." He's half right.
Okay, here they are. If you cover enough shows over a long enough period of time, you find yourself recapping some people on more than one series. Sometimes it's a respected thespian like Kathy Bates or James Cromwell, sometimes it's a prolific character actor, but in this case, it's Jordan and Jeff, who after last summer I thought were out of my life forever, or at least until the next time they came crawling back to Julie Chen for a chance to help host a Power of Veto challenge or something. Wearing baby-blue, they are described by Phil as "dating long-distance," because Phil is above all that reality TV nonsense. But of course it's not going to be left at that. "Jeff and I met in the Big Brother house," Jordan admits, and we get a clip of Jordan's "I can't tell time" scene with Jeff, which I've already recapped once in my life and I'm not about to do it again. I will say she earns a gong sound of her own. We also see her emerging victorious from the BB11 house, and as we see the two of them having a champagne picnic in an autumnal park somewhere, Jeff says they've been together almost every weekend since leaving the house. "So far, so good. We'll see what happens here, though." All I know is that either they or Dan|Jordan had better go soon. I'm already tired of typing "he-Jordan" and "she-Jordan," and I've only done it once.
