Wow, summer went by fast, which means it's almost fall, and almost time for Survivor 27 and The Amazing Race Season 23. We already know who is going to be on Survivor, but the new Amazing Race cast was just announced today, so here's our first look. It premieres on September 28, 2013 on CBS.
The Amazing Race Season 23 Cast 2013

Brandon Squyres and Adam Switzer
Age: Both 34
Hometown: Chico, Calif.
Occupation: Contractor & Eco Friendly Farmer
Connection: Childhood friends

My First Impression: These guys look like they stepped right off Duck Dynasty, or a hippie commune. With so much amazing attitude packed in one pic, you can guarantee these two will be the source of much entertainment on this season's Amazing Race.
Most Likely To: Be uber resourceful, try to score weed in Europe.

Age: 22 & 25
Hometown: Los Angeles

My First Impression: The token blonde hotties who, for their sake, hopefully won't be sitting on those thumbs this race. The one on the right is the dense one.
