Auburn roots on ‘The Amazing Race’ trace back to (a single episode in) 2009

Race Issues: A half a step—and constant arguing—cost Auburn alum Preston McCamy and his girlfriend Jennifer Hopka the chance to continue past the season premiere of “The Amazing Race” 14.

Amazing Race contestants Caitlin King and Brittany Fletcher set an Auburn record Sunday night by becoming the first Auburn graduates to make it past the show’s season premier.

Yes, Preston McCamy and his Auburn sweatshirt have somehow been flying under our state of the art Auburn-in-pop-culture radar for more than three years now. A 2003 Auburn graduate, McCamy and girlfriend Jennifer Hopka, whom McCamy apparently had to literally carry to the finish line, were the first couple eliminated from The Amazing Race 14 back in early 2009.

Have we missed any Auburny others? Let us know.
