MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin Army National Guard officer and his wife will compete in the latest installment of the CBS series “The Amazing Race.”
Dave and Rachel Brown will be one of the 11 couples competing against each other in a trek around the world for $1 million. The show pits teams against physical and mental challenges.
Maj. Brown says 16 years of service in the Wisconsin guard and a recent deployment to Iraq should help him with the challenge. He’s currently assigned to the ROTC detachment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Rachel pitched the idea of applying for the show when the couple recently visited Sydney, Australia.
Maj. Brown has served as a military intelligence officer and a Black Hawk pilot. The 20th season of the reality show premieres Sunday, Feb. 19.
