CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” is leaping into the future of social media!
By which I mean they’ve recognized that social media stars with their built-in fan followings are a lucrative money-making opportunity and have decided to cash in. For their 28th season, the teams for “The Amazing Race” will be made up entirely of social media stars.

It’ll be like one giant YouTube challenge. Except it’s for a million dollars, and they’ll have to go outside. (I kid, I kid.)
