Dating couple Marcy Maloy, 60, and Ron Shalita, 59, wanted to represent "older couples" on The Amazing Race, but their time was cut short Sunday after falling behind on a far-flung Detour. There was little disappointment, however, since the pair was eliminated in Vietnam, the same place Marcy's father was shot down and later rescued while serving in the Air Force during the Vietnam War. "It was so wonderful to be there," she tells TVGuide.com. "Obviously the war divided the north and the south, and we met people from the north and the south, and they were the most beautiful, smiling people." See what else the two had to say about their emotional exit, why they did not misunderstand the Detour clue and more. To Read More Click Here . If You Missed The Last Episode Watch It Here Online Now

Married yoga teachers Eric, 41, and Lisa Paskel, 43, have the dubious distinction of being the first team ever to get eliminated on The Amazing Race before it even began, coming up short on a needle-in-the-haystack, license-plate-finding task. "It just felt so strange because that's not what we signed on for, but it worked out for the best," Lisa tells TVGuide.com. How so? The pair subsequently went on their own "amazing adventure" and may soon be back on our TV screens with a new reality show. See what else they have to say about their short-lived stint on the series.

"It definitely came down to luck, which is disappointing for us since we got out so early," Jessica tells TVGuide.com. What's not disappointing is getting engaged after getting the boot, silencing critics of their "Dating On and Off" label on the show.

Herbert, 32, and Nathaniel, 28, play for the Harlem Globetrotters. Maria and Tiffany, both 26, are professional poker players. Twenty-seven-year olds Ericka (who was Miss America 2004) and her husband, Brian, are also on board. Rounding out the rest of the cast are: Dating duo Meghan and Cheyne, both 23, who met in elementary school; another couple, Marcy, 60, and Ronald, 59 met just a year ago online; the newly engaged Lance, 41, and Keri, 33, are business professionals with numerous athletic hobbies; father and son Gary, 47, and Matt, 22, are complete opposites; Garrett, 28, and Jessica, 27, have broken up three times in their seven-year dating history; Eric, 41, and Lisa, 43, are married yoga instructors; brothers Dan, 21, and Sam, 23; friends Zev, 26, who has Asperger's Syndrome, and Justin, 31; and lovebirds Mika, 22, and Canaan, 26.

You know what I miss? Waiting very closely for the next season of The Amazing Race , knowing nothing about what to expect. Then again, that's impossible right now, since I'm doing that show for BuddyTV, and, well, that includes spoilers. So, sure, I'll give them to you. If you're not willing to be spoiled, then skip this now. Last week we mentioned that poker players Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle have been spotted at LAX on the day production for the 15th season is set to begin, and now, there are details on a couple more teams--and they're not exactly civilian teams, too. Maybe a step towards last season's Mel and Mike, surely? Or that other couple from Survivor? Reality Blurred now reports that two more celebrity teams (sort of) are part of this year's race, but credit to where it's due--they're just trawling RealityFanForum.com like in the case of the poker players last week. Based on covertly-taken photographs at LAX, those teams include Miss America 2004 Erica Dunlap and her husband Brian Kleinschmidt, and Harlem Globetrotters Nate "Big Easy" Lofton and Herbert "Flight Time" Lang. Just a thought here: that really makes them Globetrotters now. Speculation suddenly arises, that this season of The Amazing Race is going to be themed of some sort. That's three celebrity teams too many--not that there's anything bad about it, but having many of them in one season seems like a plan more than a coincidence. There's even a report that another team consists of a lesbian couple who perform for a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas. But I saw those spoilers online and some, well, I'm not really familiar with, so we might have some civilians after all. I see a team of siblings, a Brad and Victoria type, and someone apparently named Keri. And they're flying to Japan, I heard. Well. That spoils it. Source Here
It seems that if we have someone to rely on for being very competitive, very cunning, and very tricky players in a reality show, it'd have to be poker players. Annie Duke on The Celebrity Apprentice , anyone? Well, throw The Amazing Race to that list, too. Lately the Internet's been slightly abuzz when sources from within CBS confirmed that the upcoming season of the show will feature a team composed of two professional poker players. But, of course, they're not telling who they are. Fans, however, are quick to pick up on this. Now, I don't know much about poker, but some obviously do. The photo up there was posted on RealityFanForum.com and that girl whose face points to the camera is apparently poker player Maria Ho. Her partner? People are guessing it's fellow player Tiffany Michelle--and they thought of that because she's dropped out of the upcoming World Series of Poker Main Event for decisions she isn't exactly letting slip of. For obvious reasons, surely. "It'd have to be something pretty big to deter me from the WSOP Championship Event this year, and trust me, it is!" she blogged. "I can't disclose much right now but I'll be leaving to film a project for a month and it conflicts with the Main Event ... This project and my part are very huge and it's an opportunity [that's] just too good to pass up." "At the end of the day, acting and performing have always been my passion," she concluded. "In fact, it's how I fell into poker to begin with and I never want to lose sight of that part of my life and career." Filming for The Amazing Race began a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles, with the actual race kicking off on July 15. Nothing's been heard from the two since that. So maybe it is them. Last season we had lawyers. This time, we have poker players. I see a trend... Source Here
