I don’t know if there will be any life vests on this season of The Amazing Race, but if so, floaters better grab them. That’s because reality royalty returns tonight when husband-and-wife team Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly take their second tour on The Amazing Race when season 24 of the reality show premieres on CBS. But how does racing around the world at breakneck speed compare with backstabbing house guests in the backyard on the show that first made Brenchel famous, Big Brother? We asked the couple when they called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105).
Which game is harder, mentally and physically? And what is more emotionally taxing? (After all, we’ve seen Rachel breakdown on both.) The couple compare both games, talks about lessons learned from last time on the Race, discuss whether anyone will be able to come between Rachel and her man, and address whether we might see the duo compete again on Big Brother. Plus, Rachel gives her take on last summer’s controversial Big Brother, which starred her sister Elissa. It’s a must listen for any reality fan, and you can hear the entire thing right here on the InsideTV Podcast. Just click on the audio player below.
But first, we welcome Walking Dead star Emily Kinney to the show. Emily talks about the latest episode of the zombie drama, which featured not only a lot of her character, Beth, but also entries from Beth’s journal read out loud. Emily talks about what it all means, how Beth is reacting to the death of her father, what’s it’s like to get so many scenes alone with Norman Reedus, and what’s to come next on the show. Plus, we chat about Emily’s blossoming music career, and what it’s like to perform in front of her castmates. It’s an audio feast fit for any Walking Dead fan…or any zombie, for that matter.
