If you notice in the list, there are some ex-"Survivor" contestants who will be joining the 25th season of TAR. They are Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollefson from "Survivor: South Pacific." When they met in "Survivor," Duncan, a country music singer ("Right Road Now"), was still married to musician Donny Fallgatter. But, she got attracted to Tollefson as the reality competition was being filmed in Upolu, Samoa. Fallgatter and Duncan divorced in November 2011. By February of 2013, Duncan and Tollefson got engaged. They used to be competitors in "Survivor: South Pacific." Unfortunately, they both didn't end up as the sole "Survivor." Now, they will team up in TAR in the hopes of winning together the US$1 million grand prize. Will they win the race or will this put a strain on their relationship? Tune in to "The Amazing Race" Season 25 to find out!
