The best reality show returns to TV on Sept. 26 — and it’s going to be the most twisted season of ‘Amazing Race’ ever!
While The Amazing Race is always entertaining and nail-biting, we’ve got to say that Season 25 looks like it’s going to push the limits like never before. We’re super excited to see Bethany Hamilton, 24, and her husband Adam Dirks, 26, take off running! Host, Phil Keoghan recently raved over Bethany and revealed that she is actually the full package, and has exactly the characteristics it takes to win.
‘Amazing Race’ Premiere
“Having her on the show has created such a new wave of interest with young women,” Phil told The Hollywood Reporter before the CBS premiere. It’s quite staggering, actually. She is such an inspiration to many young women in particular that she’s going to bring a huge amount of interest. She doesn’t talk about the fact that she doesn’t have one of her arms; she talks about what she wants to do in life and gets on with it.”
This sounds about right — Team Soul Surfers will definitely rock the physical competitions, and we’ve got a feeling that they’ll be pretty great with the mind games as well. Her positive attitude is extremely inspiring.
“You’ll see her kick some serious butt,” he added. “If anybody is foolish enough to misjudge her, they’ll find out the hard way that this young woman is not messing around.”
Bethany’s The Perfect Combo
Bethany is not only athletic, and that, Phil says, is her key.
“It really is a blend of brains and brawn and determination and people really wanting to win,” he added. “And Bethany is one of those people.”
