Season 22 of the Amazing Race premieres Sunday, February 17 on CTV and CBS, and if you were waiting for some sort of hockey tie-in before you gave yourself over to a season of the reality show, this is your year. Former NHLer Bates Battaglia and his brother make up one of the cast's 11 teams.
Back in January, we featured a chat with Bates about the upcoming program. Now, courtesy of CBS, here's a clip of the brothers from the premiere episode:
In the first episode, the teams arrive in Bora Bora, where three duos throw in the towel during the first Roadblock of the season. Lord, I hope it's not these two, especially since hockey player representation on primetime television is criminally low and I'd like this rare treat to last awhile, not to mention I strongly believe Anthony's ability to remove his own teeth would prove very useful on a trip around the world.
I have nothing to support this belief. I'm sort of hoping the show will do that for me.
