Globetrotters Return For "The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business" on CBS

Reality TV favorites, Flight Time Lang and Big Easy Lofton, who captured the hearts of millions of fans during a top-four finish on Season 15 of “The Amazing Race,” will get another opportunity to thrill viewers worldwide as the popular Globetrotters tandem has been selected to compete in the upcoming special season of the Emmy Award-winning series, “The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business.”

“The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” will premiere on Sunday, Feb. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

“We are pumped for the chance to close the deal this time around,” said Big Easy. “We had a lot of fun competing in ‘The Amazing Race’ the first time, but now, we are focused on being the first ones to cross the finish line.”

“I’m taking any word jumble challenges,” joked Flight Time. The Globetrotters’ run in Season 15 ended when Big Easy had difficulty unscrambling a letter puzzle in the next to last episode, and the Globetrotters were forced to take a time penalty they could not overcome. “We had so much fun doing what we do best, entertaining fans across the globe. We can’t wait to do it again.”

Both Flight Time and Big Easy are also fan favorites on the basketball court, as they star in Globetrotters games all across the U.S. and the world. Flight Time, Big Easy, and their Globetrotter teammates are in the midst of their 2011 “4 Times the Fun” World Tour, playing 274 games in 220 cities across North America through mid-April.
