The Amazing Race: Previewing Episode 15.04 "I'm Like Ricky Bobby"
What is it with celebrities on this season of The Amazing Race?  Last week's episode floated Sean Penn's name.  This week, we have Ricky Bobby.

Oh, wait, Ricky Bobby is Will Ferrell's character in Talladega Nights.  Still, it counts, if only halfway through.

Too bad that for most of us who are rooting for Zev and Justin to, at the very least, get pretty far, we won't see it happening.  After their elimination due to a missing passport in Phnom Penh (not Sean Penn, although it's kinda cute) the eight remaining teams fly to Dubai, hotpot of the emergence of the Middle East.  And, well, the usual deserts and camels.

Judging from the promos, I think tonight's the night we see one of the more extraordinary (and weird!) tasks on the race--but I won't spoil if you haven't read about it elsewhere yet.  That aside, the teams will battle scorching temperatures, and one team will help the competition in the belief that karma will help them in the end.

Shades of Zev and Justin, right?  Only it didn't really work.

The Amazing Race returns tonight from 8pm on CBS.  Or, more specifically, after 60 Minutes, after football.  Not car racing, unless I'm missing something.
