"The race is on!"
The Indians have a reality TV star on their hands.
New third base and infield coach Steve Smith and his daughter, Allie, form a team on the upcoming 16th season of the CBS reality-competition series “The Amazing Race.” The season premiere airs Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. ET.
In the show, teams of two people follow clues and race around the world via various forms of transportation. They are eliminated week by week, until only three teams remain. The team that arrives first to the final destination wins a cool $1 million.
No word on how Smith and his daughter fared. And even if I knew, I wouldn’t tell you, because I’m not one to spoil the endings of reality series.*
*although I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that the couple that ends up together on “The Bachelor” will break up within 12-18 months.
Smith isn’t the only pseudo-celebrity on this season of the show. Also slated to appear is Caitlin Upton, better known as the star of my favorite YouTube clip of all-time.
