Charla and Mirna race to extend their 15 minutes of fame. The ''Amazing Race'' duo will star in the season opener of ''MADtv'' on Sept. 18

Just because fan favorites Charla Faddoul and Mirna Hindoyan have been eliminated from ''The Amazing Race'' doesn't mean their quest for stardom is over. According to USA Today, the 4-foot-tall Charla and her cousin/teammate will be chasing their 15 minutes of fame by guest starring on the season premiere of Fox's ''MADtv.'' The Saturday night sketch comedy show, which begins its 10th year on Sept. 18, will feature Charla and Mirna in a sketch about another high-stakes competition, called ''The Amazing Presidential Race.'' Does this mean we'll also get to see John Kerry devouring caviar, or George W. Bush hauling a side of beef?
