This hasn't paid off much in terms of a ratings surge, though it did get me to check back in with the reality series. Has this casting stunt paid off creatively though? The answer to that question is a bit more complicated. Read More... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/the-amazing-race/the-amazing-race-are-the-blind-56304.aspx

Host Phil Keoghan is back for a brand new season of "The Amazing Race," and this time he's brought along 10 singles who have never met each other before as well as six teams of pre-existing couples. Dun, dun, dun.The assumption is that the six couples -- oh hey, Jonathan Knight from New Kids on the Block and boyfriend Harley -- who are either dating or married will be able to survive the competition longer than the five "blind date" couples who don't know each other's strengths and weaknesses yet.However, by the end of Wednesday's (Feb. 25) premiere, it's clear that the "blind date" couples shouldn't be counted out. In fact, the first three teams to make it to the check-in were strangers at the beginning of the episode. How's that for teamwork?
