'Amazing Race' Contestant Gets Hit In The Face With Whole Watermelon (Video) - Starpulse

It seemed like a relatively harmless Amazing Race challenge at the time: launch watermelons with a giant slingshot and try to hit stationary targets. Unfortunately for Claire Champlin of the Home Shopping Network team, she inadvertently made herself one of the targets. As a teaser for the upcoming season premiere on September 29th, CBS shared this clip of what appears to be a Roadblock challenge. After Claire launches watermelon after watermelon at the target, she concentrates and aims for another shot while lying down on her back. As she lets go, the watermelon gets trapped in the loading band and swings back, launching the watermelon back at her face in an explosion of red. Luckily, that red was the fruit.

Phil Keoghan Sets Sail with New Reality Series

The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan is setting sail on a second gig: a new reality series about the Velux 5 Oceans race. He will host and produce the untitled series, which will follow the 2010-11 race. The skippers, who must single-handedly sail in the 30,000-mile contest, will film themselves at sea during the race. The Velux 5 Oceans race - a series of five ocean sprints - occurs every four years. It's the longest-running round-the-world yacht race. This year's competition kicks off Oct. 17 in France, before hitting South Africa, New Zealand, Brazil and the United States. "Extreme adventure sports have been captured many times, but what makes this race so unique is the world's best sailors will take on the unforgiving oceans alone," Keoghan, 43, said in a statement. "This is a fantastic opportunity to share a physical and mental challenge that will test competitors beyond what seems humanly possible and at the same time highlight the planet's awe-inspiring oceans."

Interview: Brent and Caite from 'The Amazing Race'

When I heard that Brent and Caite were joining The Amazing Race, the first thing that came to my head was that thing Caite did during the Miss Teen USA pageant years back. I thought it'd be amusing to see her race. I thought Brent and Caite wouldn't last long, but I kept that opinion throughout the race--at least until the last two legs, when I realized that there's more to Brent and Caite than I thought. I caught up with Brent and Caite early this week, and apart from the obvious discussion of the lesbian couple's comments against them, we talked about losing sleep during pit stops and why Caite will never go away.

Interview: Jet and Cord from 'The Amazing Race'

t's a no-brainer: cowboys Jet and Cord are probably the biggest fan favorites on The Amazing Race by far. They're fun to watch, they're quite good at the race, and they remain down to earth in spite of being in the front of the pack for most of the race. No wonder most of us were rooting for them to win. Even if they ended up in second place, we all feel they're winners. I caught up with the cowboys early this week, and despite the interview's short length, you can feel how close they are as brothers. We talked about their almost-elimination, their take on Dan and Jordan's game-changing move, and their hometown with one yellow light. To Read More Click Here .

Amazing Race's Caite and Brent: Carol and Brandy Were "Complete Bitches"

Caite Upton and Brent Horne were surprised and unsurprised by Brandy's outburst at the Amazing Race finish. "[Brandy and Carol] need to get over the U-Turn and grow up. It's a game and it was over," Caite, 21, tells "But it's just like them to complain since that's what they did the whole Race." It was the girls' grouchy attitude - and not homophobia - that fueled the models' decision to U-Turn them, Caite, 21, says. See what else the two, who are no longer dating, have to say about their arch-enemies, why they weren't worried about Dan and Jordan's first-class move, and if Brent, 29, really had to pee that badly in Shanghai.

Amazing Race's Jet and Cord: We're "Still Wondering" Why Dan and Jordan Cut in Line

Jet and Cord McCoy's never-say-die attitude helped them make Amazing Race history earlier this season when they became the first team to jump from last to first with a Speed Bump. But the cowboys/brothers couldn't make one last comeback when it mattered most in the finale, falling to Dan and Jordan. "We thought we could catch up to them right up until we came out on the tunnel and saw them on the mat already," Jet, 30, tells "There was obviously disappointment that we were second, but you take the bad with the good. We had a great time and feel like we ran a great Race." See what else they say about the infamous cut-in-line, if they tried to move up to first class and why Cord, 29, had "a lot of fun" at the virtual reality task. To Read More Click Here .

Amazing Race's Daniel and Jordan: First-Class Move "Made All the Difference in the World"

It became a battle of the brothers at the end of The Amazing Race 16, with the Rhode Island-bred Daniel, 25, and Jordan Pious, 23, edging out cowboys Jet and Cord for the $1 million - without any advantage from cutting in line at the airport. "We were in the same exact plane at the same exact time, all middle seats in three consecutive rows. Caite and Brent, who were first to get tickets, were in the row furthest from the front," Dan tells "If people want to be up-in-arms about cutting, I can understand that, but don't think that it affected the Race. ... And Cord did a good job of getting revenge and distracting me at the virtual challenge, so I guess we're even." It was, rather, the move up to first class that ensured the Piouses a lead that they never relinquished. So how did they smooth-talk their way up front? To Read More Click Here .

Interview: Louie and Michael from 'The Amazing Race'

Louie and Michael started The Amazing Race with a bold claim: they'd finish first in every leg. Well, that didn't happen, and they struggled for most of the race, save for a couple of legs in Europe. But that's not how I remember the two of them. I'll perhaps remember them for the decisions they made during their run on the show: their controversial U-turns, their alliances, and their intentions.
