Rupert won’t be on Amazing Race 8.

Rupert won’t be on Amazing Race 8.
Distressing rumors that The Amazing Race 8 would feature Survivor pirate/teddy bear Rupert Boneham are apparently not true. Although he’s a fan of the series, he’s not going to pull a Rob and Amber and get a third chance at $1 million. Rupert tells Reality TV Magazine, “No, we won’t be doing the Family race. As much as I enjoy the show, I wouldn’t put my 5 year old daughter through that.” Not that she could participate: the age limit for kids is eight.
