Houstonian Will Be Doing Whatever It Is They Do On "Amazing Race"

Do people still watch the reality show

Amazing Race

? They do?

OK. Then here's a news tip for you -- H-Town will be in the house for the 13th season of the award-winning series, which begins September 28.

The producers have announced the 11 two-person teams that will be competing this year, and among the contestants is Houstonian Kelly Crabb (on the left in the picture).

Crabb, who has never, ever heard a joke about her name, is a 26-year-old sales rep and former dancer who founded the Houston Aeros dance team.

Oddly enough, the Amazing Race press release describes the "relationship" between her and competition partner Christy Cook, from Austin, as "divorcees." (Other teams are "married," "brother and sister," etc.)

So in between trying to bribe their way onto ferries and taxis (they do that on Amazing Race, right?), we guess Crabb & Cook are expected to bitch about their ex-husbands.

At any rate, Crabb has to be a better rep for Texas than American Idol Aggie Jason Castro.
