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.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
