Notes on new The Amazing Race cast

Many of the members of the TAR Season 33 cast have great backstories that should provide a lot of content for viewers to enjoy this winter. Below are just some of the stories about them.

Kim Holderness and Penn Holderness are very well known for their social media presence and for all of the online content they have provided over the years. Typically, their videos involve a lot of singing, with some really funny ones that make jokes about formulaic holiday movies.

Raymond “Ray” Gantt and Caro Viehweg are a Love Island USA Season 1 couple that decided to go on TAR for a chance at the $1 million prize.

Sam Greiner is a high school football coach who famously took in the school’s quarterback as an honorary member of the family.

Spencer Stone is famous for rushing a terrorist on a train in Paris that was under attack. Clint Eastwood did a film on the subject.

Make sure to tune in on Wednesday, January 5 for the two-hour premiere of the new cast. After the debut episode airs at 8/7c, the show will slide into its regular 9/8c time slot for January 12 and beyond.

This winter is going to be packed with reality competition shows on CBS, with the network also bringing back Celebrity Big Brother for a new season.
