New season of The Amazing Race to have Royal connection
Baseball and travel go hand in hand. We’ve featured travel and geography on this blog through fan photos in our Around the World posts. We interviewed an opposing coach who appeared on The Amazing Race with his daughter. And we asked Royals which teammate would make the best contestant on The Amazing Race. When we posed that question to second baseman Chris Getz in March, 2012, little did we know that his wife, Nicky, would be a contestant on the show. Nicky will share the television experience with Kim DeJesus, wife of former Royal and current Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David DeJesus. Congrats to Nicky and Kim, who are featured in a “Meet the Teams” video on CBS.com! The new season premieres Sunday, September 29 on CBS.
