It's official: Jeff and Jordan from last summer's Big Brother will be on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race (along with Caitlin Upton, the Miss Teen USA contestant who didn't know why Americans couldn't read maps). Despite the fact that Jordan won BB, these two are an odd choice for TAR since Jordan isn't exactly what you'd call a savvy world traveler, or a very smart person in general. So we're skeptical that they'll make it very far at all (though possibly further than Caitlin) and, much like Romber, it'll be weird to see (minor) celebrities and former reality stars competing against regular folks/aspiring reality stars. If TAR really wants to go that route, why not cast all the teams that way? These would be our dream pairings:
Apparently, if you want Snooki from Jersey Shore to be an inspirational speaker -- or, at the very least, a speaker -- at your event, the price is on the rise. However, her less fascinating counterparts Ronnie and his girlfriend Sammi Sweetheart are a bargain-priced package deal. Meanwhile, as I noticed while watching Giuliana & Bill (don't ask!), the first Apprentice winner is doing speaking engagements all over the country, which at least makes some sense since he won a reality show involving business savvy, as opposed to getting punched in the face. And lord knows that the Biggest Loser folks are making big bucks by acting as motivational speakers. So in light of all that, here are our picks for reality "stars" that we'd want to hire for very specialized personal appearances.
