‘Amazing Race’ Rejects Are ‘Survivors’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Amazing Race bootees have Survivor to thank for their chance to compete on the hit show.

Lauren, who raced with her father Duke, says they got the gig while she was in the middle of auditioning for Survivor, but producers thought she and her estranged dad, who was furious when she came out as a lesbian, would be better suited for the race.

Lauren approached her dad for the show and, despite their differences, Duke admits he said yes “in about two seconds.”

Although they were cut Sunday (Oct. 1), the two say they have learned a lot about each other and now accept their differences – in fact they got along so well they want to travel again as soon as possible.

That’s if Survivor doesn’t come knocking first. Both father and daughter admit they would jump at the chance to be stranded on an island together.
