A Big Brother couple may be in the running for the $1 million prize on the new season of The Amazing Race.
It was recently revealed by the host of the show (Phil Keoghan) that filming had begun on Season 34 of TAR, with the plans for new episodes to air on CBS in Fall 2022.
While the official cast for the Fall 2022 season of The Amazing Race has not been revealed yet, it has been reported that a couple that emerged from the Big Brother house is participating.
CBS also revealed that the new season of the hit reality competition show will be airing on Wednesday nights in the fall, right after new episodes of Survivor.
A Big Brother 23 couple on The Amazing Race 34?
Twitter user Jordan Woodson posted what he claims to be photos that were recently taken from the set of The Amazing Race. And in those photos, it appears that Derek Xiao and Claire Rehfuss from Big Brother 23 appear.
Derek X and Claire were members of the BB23 cast, and once they had been evicted, they started up a relationship in the jury house. That relationship continued when the season came to an end, and it appears that the couple is still going strong.
