Interview: Jaymes & James talk 'The Amazing Race'

12 December 2012 10:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It wasn't a direct path that Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis took to "Amazing Race" success to into the hearts of fans.   In the first Leg, the two Chippendales performers seemed to embody every himbo stereotype we wanted to pre-judge them with. Mental gaffes caused them to very nearly get eliminated in that initial episode, as they survived only by virtue of being marginally faster than a middle-aged couple.   But then, a funny thing happened. Jaymes & James began to grow on viewers. Their high spirits were infectious and Jaymes was good for two or three quotable lines per »

DVD Review: The Day Time Ended

25 October 2012 2:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Day Time Ended

Stars: Jim Davis, Christopher Mitchum, Dorothy Malone, Marcy Lafferty, Natasha Ryan | Written by Wayne Schmidt, J. Larry Carroll & David Schmoeller | Directed by John ‘Bud’ Carlos

Sometimes you pick the films you’re going to review based entirely on how ridiculous the titles are. It works for a while: you get a few choice so-bad-they’re-good b-movies and the occasional left-field gem, and most of the time the title alone is worth the movie’s inevitable failure to live up to its own hype.

And then you come across a film like The Day Time Ended.

I’d tell you the plot, but I’m really not sure it has one. The opening narration is so badly mixed that I couldn’t tell if it was part of the story or just an old Shatner record played backwards. IMDb relays it thusly: “Aliens visit the solar-powered house of a middle-class family, »

The Amazing Race 21, the 21st racearoundtheworld for a million bucks, kicks off on CBS on Sunday, September 30. In a welcome change from last season's gay-free Race, this installment sees mixed in among the usual dating couples, twins and...monster truck drivers? three known members of Team Gay.

Up first are a pair who may be familiar to AfterElton readers already. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcel are an engaged couple, farmers from upstate New York. Brent's also a doctor who used to work for Martha Stewart and Josh in a previous incarnation was a fabulous drag queen who's written a novel and a couple of memoirs.

Oh, and they also appeared in a little reality show about their life on the farm called The Fabulous Beekman Boys that aired for two seasons on Planet Green and is now headed to The Cooking Channel. »

CBS has announced the 11 teams of two that will traverse the globe on the 21st season of "The Amazing Race," which premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on CBS, with the Emmy-nominated Phil Keoghan returning as host.

The new season introduces a twist whereby if the team that wins the first leg of the season can also win the final leg of the Race, they will double their money and win $2 million instead of $1 million.

Teams will travel through three continents, nine countries and cover more than 25,000 miles, where they'll be faced with a 10-story rappel in Los Angeles, frying an egg on their heads in Indonesia, working as "rat collectors" in Bangladesh and revisiting one of the Race's most infamous Roadblocks in the Netherlands in this season's "Switchback."
