Amazing Race 17 may only have two beauty queens after site retracts team ID

The web site that tracks and attempts to identify Amazing Race contestants has retracted its identification of two beauty queen contestants, which means there may be just two instead of four beauty queens on the 17th season.

A note posted in the cast identification thread says, “RFF regrets to say that this identification may be incorrect, so these names will be removed while we investigate further. We do sincerely apologize to both women if we have caused either them or their families any distress.” They’re no longer confident in their identification of Mrs. Colorado 2009 Megan Yarberry and her potential teammate, Mrs. Nebraska 2009 Jennifer Hart. The discussion of the possible misidentification goes into greater detail.
