Amazing Race's Carol and Brandy: Caite "Very Clearly Had a Problem with Us As Lesbians"

Caite Upton and Brent Horne seemed to have it out for Carol Rosenfeld, 47, and Brandy Snow, 40, from the beginning of The Amazing Race this season - which was news to the couple. "We both had separate conversations with her and Caite talked about [her infamous answer at Miss Teen USA 2007] and how she overcame it. I remember specifically saying, 'Good for you,' so to find out how much she hated us was a complete shock," Carol tells us. The models' self-described hatred culminated in them U-Turning Carol and Brandy in Sunday's episode, leading to their anger-filled elimination. Get the duo's take on the so-called "feud," why they think Caite in particular was after them, and if they would've used the U-Turn on the models. To Read More Click Here .

'The Amazing Race' Pit Stop Fiver: It's Singapore, Lah

"Singapore is a very fine city," my tour guide, Violet, said during my first visit to this island city-state. "Fine, because there is a fine for everything. There's a fine for spitting, a fine for littering..." Despite the strictness and its seemingly high-strung nature, Singapore is one of my favorite countries. I haven't traveled much, but I've been in this country twice, the last time just half a year ago. There's something about this country that I like and yet can't explain. It's warmer, for one. It's very diverse. And for some reason, I feel comfortable there. The Amazing Race heads here this Sunday, and I thought I'd make this week's pit stop fiver a little more special. Sure, I still relied on the usual sources - that'd be Wikipedia and the forums - but I'm giving it a bit of a personal touch. I've got a couple of stories in here, along with a handful of photos I took, all to help you make sense of the race, and the place as well. Trust me, it's good. To Read More Click Here .

Amazing Race's Steve and Allie: Elimination "Hard to Swallow"

After a winning leg in the Seychelles (at the expense of losing their bags), the father-daughter duo Steve and Allie Smith ran a muddled leg in Malaysia and were eliminated on Sunday's Amazing Race. "Being in sports, that's what happens sometimes. You have a great day one day and a horrible one the next," Steve, the Cleveland Indians third base coach, tells TVGuide.com. "I'm not saying we were the best team, but we were good and we felt like we were on a roll and had a good opportunity to win. One little thing knocks you out." In this case, it was multiple, direction-challenged cab drivers. Find out how much time they bled shuffling between Detours, what Allie, 23, blames herself for, and what Steve, 57 - who won a World Series ring with the 2008 Philadelphia Phillies - wishes he had in Malaysia.

Amazing Race's Jeff and Jordan: We Like to Make Mistakes

Jordan Lloyd won Big Brother 11, while Jeff Schroeder won fan favorite, but the couple didn't come close to winning The Amazing Race. After a bad cab ride left them in last place two weeks ago, the pair struggled to keep up before getting eliminated Sunday following yet another mistake-ridden leg. "We were trying to keep it positive, but this leg, if everything could've gone wrong, I think it did," Jeff, 31, tells us. "We started late and we tried our best. A lot of people made mistakes this leg, so if we had made the right decisions, we may have had a chance." See what else the two have to say about their last hurrah, what was wrong with their game plan, and if Jordan, 23, knows who Joan of Arc is now. To Read More Click Here .

'The Amazing Race' Pit Stop Fiver: That Part of France Where Champagne Is Made

This week's episode of The Amazing Race keeps us in France, but unlike last week--where low-flying planes and explosions were the norm--we'll have a considerably quieter leg.

We're headed to the French city of Reims this week, one of the centers of champagne production--and a very important city in the country's history. So, with the help of trusty Wikipedia and the spoiler forums, here's five bits that will set you up for Sunday's leg. You might've guessed I'll talk about champagne. To Read More Click Here .

Interview: Joe and Heidi from 'The Amazing Race 16'

I may not have always been fond of Joe and Heidi from this season of The Amazing Race--from the first week I joined the "they're too confident" side of the fence--but later weeks made me realize that what they don't have in popularity, they make up with their intensity in running the race. After all, they were in second place at one point. But they were eliminated in France after being U-turned by detectives Louie and Michael--they figured they needed the humble pie, and it seems they did. I got to talk to Joe and Heidi early today, and I think we covered everything--the U-turn, the Morse code task, and the knee. Oh, and gastronomic delights in Germany, too. To Read More Click Here .

Amazing Race's Joe and Heidi: Morse Code Challenge Was "an Impossible Task"

A Morse code task spelled doom for Joe and Heidi Wang on The Amazing Race after the pair was U-Turned by detectives Louie and Michael, forcing them to the code-deciphering challenge in the World War I-inspired Detour. "No other team did it, so that was the end of us because we had to do two," Joe, 42, tells us. "That was an impossible task for us - not to say that no one can do it. I'm sure military-trained individuals would be able to do it." Find out how long Joe and Heidi, 37, toiled with the recording's endless beeps, what may have affected their guesses and more.
