Teen.com Hosts Joey Graceffa & Meghan Camarena Join ‘The Amazing Race’ Cast
Besides hosting their own popular YouTube channels, as well as Teen.com shows, Joey Graceffa (Joey’s Dystopia) and Meghan Camarena (Dear Teen) also make up one of the 11 teams on the upcoming 22nd season of The Amazing Race.
Battling against other duos comprised of relationships such as newlyweds, best friends, hockey brothers and country singers, Joey and Meghan will compete in a race around the world together. However, Season 22 will be unlike some of the past. TAR host Phil Keoghan tells TV Guide, “No $1 million bonus [this] season… All I can tell you is that I’ve lost between 10-15 pounds on this edition, and all I want… is a bed and a long nap!”
According to Entertainment Weekly, there will be a new twist: “While in the past the first team to arrive at the initial Pit Stop has earned an Express Pass that allows them to skip any task of their choosing, the team that arrives before all others at this season’s first Pit Stop will receive two Express Passes — one to keep for themselves and another one that must be given to another team of their choosing before the end of the fourth leg. It has the power of making one other team very happy, and several others unhappy over not receiving it.”
Of course the aforementioned twosome is aptly prepared, competing in challenging circumstances, like maze running, archery lessons and “the Olympics,” before they even joined the series. To see Teen’s very own Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena take on the world, tune in for the 22nd season premiere of The Amazing Race on February 17, 2013 at 8p ET/PT on CBS.
