will Rupert Boneham and his family be cast members on The Amazing Race 8?
First Alison (and Donny), then Rob and Amber. And now, perhaps, Rupert Boneham and his family. Yes, the real-life ogre may be an upcoming cast member of The Amazing Race 8, which will be a special family edition. Citing no sources, the Toronto Sun reports, “Don’t be surprised if Survivor favorite Rupert Boneham, along with his wife, daughter and foster child, aren’t part of the next race.” Although Canadians are intelligent (the paper also reports that The Amazing Race 7 is more popular in Canada than American Idol 4), you know they just love to mess with us, so until we hear further confirmation, we’ll just pretend this is a rumor or a horrible, awful joke.
