The Amazing Race 16 premieres Sunday at 8/7c.
Big Brother 12!!
While many Amazing Race contestants wait months â€” sometimes years â€” to get selected for the globe-trotting reality series, Big Brother sweethearts Jeff Schroeder, 31, and Jordan Lloyd, 23, only had to wait days. “Just a couple days after Big Brother ended, production came up to us and asked if we were interested in doing Amazing Race,” Jordan, who won Big Brother 11 last summer (Jeff won fan favorite), told TVGuide.com. “We didn’t hesitate. We were like, ‘Yeah, we’ll do it!’
TVGuide.com: Teams tend to fight a lot on the Race. Did you have that problem?
Jeff: [Laughs] There was definitely a lot more bickering on the Race than there was on Big Brother, just because that it’s a more stressful show. Big Brother â€” you’re laying around in the yard all day by the pool. It gets stressful once or twice a week. On Amazing Race, you’re stressed out the whole time, so obviously there’s going to be more bickering and more arguing. But in the long run, it brought us closer together instead of tearing us apart.
Jordan: You’re going to see some bickering! Jeff throws some jabs here and there. There were times I wanted to shoot him so bad and times where he wanted to strangle me, but we got through it.
