|#TAR Season 23 Cast Photo|
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.
Allison "Ally" Mello & Ashley Covert
Age: 22 & 25
Hometown: Los Angeles
Current occupation: The NHL's L.A. Kings Ice Crew Girls
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.
Most Likely To: Get lots of face time with the cameras, flirt when in trouble.
Hoskote Venkatesh & Naina Venkatesh
Age: 60 & 27
Hometown: Laguna Niguel, Calif.
Current occupation: ER Doctor, Fitness Instructor
First Impression: I think dad will be cool, and very patient, but I get the feeling Naina might be a crier, a mega drama queen, and a spoiled brat.
Most Likely To: Sabotage their own game.
Age: 56 & 47
Hometown: Charlotte, N.C.
Current occupation: Both Actors, Producers
Connection: Theater performers. They call themselves the "Queens of Bingo."
First Impression: Fun and fabulous!
Most Likely To: Sing & dance their way through the Amazing Race, which for them will only be a couple of episodes. I give them 3 tops.
Leo Temory & Jamal Zadran
Age: Both 26
Hometown: Los Angeles
Current occupation: Entrepreneur & CEO of Z.I.G.(Zadran Investment Group)
First Impression: Self made men who are fit, smart and absolutely will have the drive to win. I think they may also be a little sneaky...
Most Likely To: WIN
Chester Pitts & Ephraim Salaam
Connection: Former teammates
No clue why, but this is the only info TVGuide has on these two. Racists!
(Yes, I'm kidding for those of you with no sense of humor.)
My First Impression: Their smiles suggest they will get through this race with a positive attitude, no matter what is thrown their way.
Most Likely To: Suck at directions.
Jason Case & Amy Diaz
Age: 33 & 29
Hometown: Attleboro, Mass. & Providence, R.I.
Current occupation: Owner of a Snowplow Company, Social Media Manager
My First Impressions: I want to like Amy, but my gut tells me she'll be the new Vanessa (Season 20). Jason is adorable, but I have a feeling it'll be Amy who wears the trousers.
Most Likely To: Be the couple who annoys us with all the arguing.
Nicole "Nicky" Getz & Kim DeJesus
Age: 27 & 32
Hometown: Kansas City & Troy, Mich./ Chicago

My First Impressions: These are the kind of people you want to have as your doctor, because they appear to be genuine and warm. Of course I'll be rooting for them since they're in my age group...
