    Anyone remember this guy?



    It's Brian Kleinschmidt & his wife (at the time) Erika Dunlap from The Amazing Race Season 15 (2009). They were the first interracial couple on TAR. Erika was Miss America 2004.

    And who is this?



    It's Brian with his new wife Mika. They are the hosts of a new show on HGTV called 100 Day Dream Home (airs Sundays at 10/9c pm).

    At the beginning of the show, we find they were high school sweethearts and have been working together for 10 years.

    Here's what's interesting about that. It would mean they started working together in 2010.

    Brian & Erika got divorced in 2011!! Sounds to me like maybe Mika came back into the picture and that's what caused Brian & Erika to divorce. IDK for sure but I'm guessing.

            Hi Walleye glad you're doing well. It's funny because I was just thinking about you the other day, wondering what happened to you. I checked your profile and saw the last time you had been on here was back in January so I was a little worried and planned on asking if anyone knew anything about you in the Survivor thread this coming Wednesday. Glad you're fine and hope you're able to join us Wednesday!

            On April 1st, Big Brother Canada, Season 8, ceased production and house guests were told they would be going home due to the coronavirus. The article I linked to below has video of them being told about it.

            Because of this, I'm guessing that Season 22 of the USA version will not happen this year or if it does, it will be in the Fall or Winter sometime, all depending on what happens with this virus, of course. Of course I do not know anything for sure so right now it's a wait and see. I'm still thinking we'll hear something official from CBS sometime in May.
            In an emotional farewell, all 12 remaining 'Big Brother Canada' houseguests said goodbye as they prepared to enter the real world again amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

                The Amazing Race Season 32 teams haven't officially been revealed but found this article from back in May 2019 that identifies 10 of the 11 teams (Season 32 was filmed way back in November & December of 2018!!). I'm just posting this part of the article because the full article also has links to spoilers, like the Final 3 teams, but we don't want any spoilers posted here. Personally, I don't do spoilers. I figure why even watch if you already know what happens. If you do look at spoilers, please don't post them or even hint at them if you're joining us during the episode discussions. Thanks!

                The info comes from a reliable source but doesn't necessarily mean they got everything right but here's what they say:

                Article is from Reality Blurred:

                "Racing this season are two separate teams of sisters; teams that include Olympians, former NFL players, and professional beach volleyball players; and a pair of travel bloggers known as the Backpacking Boyfriends.

                ******* Fan Forum has identified 10 of the 11 teams. Here they are, with identifications via *FF, which may not be complete or reflected in the way they’re ultimately identified on the show:
                1. DeAngelo Williams and Gary Barnidge, friends and former NFL players
                2. Cody Buell and Nathan Worthington, friends and noodlers
                3. Maddison and Riley McKibbin, brothers and professional beach volleyball players
                4. Victoria and Michelle Newland, sisters
                5. Haley and Kaylynn Williams, sisters
                6. James Wallington and Will Jardell, “The Backpacking Boyfriends”
                7. LaVonne Idlette & Kellie Wells, friends and Olympic hurdlers
                8. Aparna and Eswar Dhinakaran, siblings
                9. Frank and Jerry Eaves, a father and son
                10. Leo Brown and Alana Folsom, a dating couple"
                The official teams' info should be released by CBS within the next week or two.

                  Clicking on that "the Backpacking Boyfriends" link (that was in the article), I found their current Instagram. They're engaged now and are no longer doing/using "the Backpacking Boyfriends" thing. Looking at the photos, which they post pretty regularly, I see they posted on October 22, 2018 and then the next post wasn't until January 2019 which is consistent with them being on The Amazing Race 32 in November & December 2018! Also, found this video in their YouTube playlist which seems to confirm they were on TAR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSqI...re=youtu.be&a= Current Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itswillandjames/
                  If you click on the "noodlers" link in the article, it goes to Cody Buell's YouTube page.

                  The only one I recognize is DeAngelo Williams. He played for the Carolina Panthers!

                  Lynette, nothing set in stone yet but from what I've been reading, IF Big Brother airs this year it will be in the Fall or Winter. If not then it will be next Summer before it airs again. Guess we'll find out for sure in the next few weeks or so.

                On May 14, 2020, Donathan Hurley from Survivor: Ghost Island posted this photo of himself & the singer Sia, who awarded him her $10,000 prize back during his season (2018):



                Then today, May 18, 2020, Sia responded:



                So yes, Sia awarded Donathan Hurley her $10,000 prize! It was reported that all the contestants on Winners At War had already won the $1million dollar prize before plus were paid $35,000 for doing this season so she didn't want to give the money to any of them. She wanted to give it to someone who needed it. So sweet of her and it sounds like he really needed it!

                Thanks to BBU member Lynette for the heads-up and info!

                      Hi Starshine
                      Yeah, hopefully they'll get to air BB 22 at some point. As of right now there is still no official word from CBS when or IF it will air this year. If it does air this year, I believe it will be late Summer or Fall before it airs. Wondering too if it will be a shorter version, maybe kind of like how they did Celebrity Big Brother. IDK.
