CASTING CALL 'The Amazing Race': Can't sing, sew or even survive? Well, luckily, this globe-trotting reality show just requires you to be really bossy and good with a map. Hosted by Phil Keoghan (above), the show is looking for fresh contestants for its next travel-athlon. Things get started at 10 a.m. Saturday at Harley Davidson of Baltimore, 8845 Pulaski Highway in Rosedale. CONCERT New Kids on the Block: The much-mocked, but beloved boy band is still hanging tough. While the comeback campaign for the early '90s hitmakers hasn't translated in album sales, the national tour has been a big hit with their now grown-up fan base.

It's the second leg of "The Amazing Race," and we learn some interesting factoids about the teams. For example, one of the blondes snorts when she is almost hit by a taxi. Was it a snort of laughter? Or of fear? It all happened so quickly. Also, were you wondering how Team Monster Truck met? Her former husband was his best friend, and the husband was killed in an accident. Wow. At least they're both happy now, although I think they would be even happier if they both had green hair.

It's "The Amazing Race" Season 20! I need a flashy hand signal, but I don't have enough fingers! Oh, wait, I figured it out. Make your own flashy hand signal at home, because this recap requires audience participation. Do you know what Phil Keoghan has been up to? Well, what he was up to a couple of years ago? He was riding his bike across America and making a documentary about it. To commemorate that ride, Phil is making all of the teams cycle to the starting line while wearing skintight "Amazing Race" jerseys.

For the frequent air traveler CABIN CUDDLER, $35; cabincuddler.com It seems that airlines are charging extra for everything nowadays. But those tiny, flimsy squares they call blankets are hardly worth your money. Plus who knows where they've been? Instead, pack your own comfort with the Cabin Cuddler, a wraparound fleece blanket that provides warmth right down to your toes. Developed by a commercial pilot, the blanket is lightweight and comes in a tote that can attach to any carry-on.

EASTON - Retirees Meredith and Gretchen Smith have gobbled 4 pounds of cow parts, scaled castles and survived head wounds on the current season of The Amazing Race - surprising fans and competitors alike by remaining in the game with just two more episodes to go. But they have not surprised their neighbors in this Eastern Shore town, where the Smiths are known as two tough cookies. Neighbor Judy Hines likes to tell about the time she was golfing with Gretchen, who is 66, and their cart got stuck in the mud. "Gretchen pushed us out all by herself," Hines says.

I can think of a dozen reasons to dislike the Emmy awards. Five of them served as co-hosts of last year's telecast. But for all the excess of the TV show itself, and some of the winners that seem totally off the wall, it is still the one night and morning after that millions of us watch, talk and argue about. We focus on quality - whatever each of us means by that - rather than ratings. And last year, with "Mad Men" and "30 Rock" winning as best drama and comedy, it seemed like the voters finally and mysteriously got it right.

An important thing happens on this week's episode of "The Amazing Race": I kind of fall in love with Abbie's Boyfriend. I know. Something else happens: We learn someone's drag queen name. I know! Let's just get on with it. Farewell, Indonesia, fourth most populated country of the world with karmic pedicabs. Time to travel to Dhaka, Bangladesh, the most densely populated city in the world (according to Phil Keoghan's Twitter feed, which I absolutely believe). Abbie and Her Boyfriend Ryan, Team Dominate, depart at 9:52 p.m. They take a cab to a travel agency.

It's "Amazing Race" time again! It's been so long since we enjoyed Phil Keoghan and his eyebrow and his hats. The sight still takes my breath away, especially when he's staring at the water in Bora Bora. And I need some eye candy right now because instead of shirtless Chippendales, this season gives us a taxidermist with a mighty mullet. Are you ready for some teams? Chuck and Wynona , married for 15 years. He likes to "kill the animal, eat the animal, mount the animal, and keep the memory on the wall forever.

You guys know Phil Keoghan is from Christchurch, New Zealand, right? Well, this week's episode takes place in his hometown, and no one is more excited about it than him. The tasks are all Things People Do in New Zealand Because They're Outnumbered by Sheep. Phil's friends are handing out clues. His tweets are hilarious. Let's jump right in to this hour of Phil. But first, business. Remember Father/Son racing to the Pit Stop last week, and Father cried out that he ruptured his Achilles?

Previously on "The Amazing Race," there were 11 teams. Some of them were really awesome, and some were not. Phil Keoghan eliminated a lot of them, and now the lucky remaining few are in Spain. It all ends tonight, you know, so I hope you have some comfort food around. You can't blame them for coasting when you cleared away their obstacles At the start of the leg, all the teams give pep talks about why they deserve to be in the top three. The Twins single out the Goat Farmers, accusing them of coasting through, taking the spot of a more deserving team.
