Cowboys return to ‘Amazing Race’
The Cowboys are back.
Brothers Jet and Cord McCoy of Tupelo return to prime-time television for season 24 of the reality series “The Amazing Race,” which airs at 7 p.m. Sundays on CBS. The All-Star Edition’s premier is this Sunday.
“We continually hear from fans that they want their favorites back, and we listened to them,” host Phil Keoghan said in a recent interview.
The brothers finished second last spring in season 16 of the reality program; they were knocked out of the competition after nine weeks during season 18. During the two spring seasons, the cowboys were recognized as fan favorites, which is why they were invited to be part of the All-Star Edition.
