Since early May, rumors have circulated about a potential Amazing Race season featuring only past CBS show contestants. This season would involve former Big Brother, The Amazing Race, and Survivor cast members. Every week, there was new news about the potential cast, especially players from Big Brother.
Last season, The Amazing Race 30 featured Big Brother 19’s Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf. The couple went on to win that season, and to draw in a lot of viewers for The Amazing Race. So it makes sense for the show to want to capitalize even more on the success of other CBS reality shows like Big Brother and Survivor.
The original rumored cast included everyone from Josh Martinez to Dan Gheesling. Over the weekend, The Amazing Race began filming its 31st season, so fans of the show closely followed to see who were the racers.
It turns out that the Big Brother players chosen were real life lovebirds Victor Arroyo and Nicole Franzel, siblings Elissa Slater and Rachel Reilly, and Big Brother 14 coaches Britney Haynes and Janelle Pierzina.

Along with the Big Brother players, the Survivor players chosen were married couple Laura and Rupert Boneham, Chris Hammons and Bret LaBelle from Millennials Vs Gen X, and Eliza Orlins and Corinne Kaplan.
The Amazing Race returnees are friends and Youtube personalities Tyler Oakley and Korey Kuhl, cousins Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran, married couple Colin Guinn and Christie Woods, Becca Droz and Floyd Pierce from the season featuring teams consisting of strangers, and best friends Art Velez and John James “JJ” Carrell.
The new season of The Amazing Race could premiere anywhere between early fall to late winter 2019. Are you excited to see these Big Brother teams on The Amazing Race 31?
