It’s official, Big Brother 19’s Jessica Graf and America’s Favorite Houseguests, Cody Nickson, will appear on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race. The duo, known to their fans as Jody, will have no time to rest as the show begins filming this Sunday, October 1st. CBS is having a special event where fans can watch Jessica and Cody start their quest for a million dollars in Washington Square Park (between 5th Ave and Waverly Place) in New York City.
The event is scheduled to begin at 11:30 am EST. Cody revealed in an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter that he was informed prior to the Big Brother 19 finale about his upcoming appearance on The Amazing Race.
The pair talked about fears of being seen as a threat on The Amazing Race, which could mean they’ll be u-turned or a target pretty early in the season. Jessica also promised to let Cody be the boss within The Amazing Race legs, but we very much doubt that she’ll keep that promise. We expect to see even more bickering from this duo.
Jessica and Cody join the growing list of Big Brother alumni who have appeared on The Amazing Race. Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder, Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas, and Jackie Ibarra and Jeff Weldon appeared on it before they made their way to the Big Brother 17 house.
CBS is remaining quiet on who else will appear on the 30th season of The Amazing Race. It could be themed, and other Big Brother alumni might appear, or Jessica and Cody may be the only ones.
No premiere date has been set for the 30th season of The Amazing Race. However, we expect it to air sometime this winter. Maybe CBS will pair it with Celebrity Big Brother, which is also coming this winter to CBS.
How do you feel about Jessica and Cody’s upcoming appearance on The Amazing Race?
