A Las Vegas couple could win $1 million by following in the footsteps of our two Rio headliner Chippendales heroes who finished in second place on Season 21 of CBS’ Emmy Award-winning reality-TV competition “The Amazing Race.”

Producers will be here Saturday to vet potential teammates for the next season of action adventures and global travels.

It was on Dec. 10, 2012, when I sadly reported that Team Chippendales with Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis were pipped at the post by split seconds on the finale of the 10-week-long Season 21.

The good friends entered in the hope of raising money for their website to pay for chemotherapy, radiation and medical bills for Jaymes’ father, Ed, who eventually lost his battle against cancer.

If you’ve got courage and a great partner and believe that you can overcome the obstacles and challenges of the global-trekking, long-running hit show, then don’t miss out on the only casting call in Nevada.

“The Amazing Race” pits teams, each comprised of two members, against one another. At every destination, each team competes in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed do they learn of their next location.

Teams who are the farthest behind are gradually eliminated as the competition progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million and crowned the winners.

There will be six hours of continuous contestant interviews starting at 9 a.m. at Team Ford located at US 95 and Ann Road. Each team will have one minute in front of a camera to explain and demonstrate why they should be the next team to take on the “Amazing Race” challenges.
