Kevin & Drew Unleashed (2004)

Once upon a time, there was a reality show called The Amazing Race. On that show were two of the funniest guys you'd ever want to meet. Kevin O'Connor and Drew Feinberg became fraternity brothers in 1984, and been best friends since. In TAR1, they bickered and pushed each other through eleven legs, eventually getting beaten to the pit stop in Shanghai by their nemesis, snooty life partners Joe & Bill (better known as Team Guido). But with their bickering and snappy one-liners, the Frats became the first fan fave team of TAR, getting a 94 percent popularity rating on

Three years later, the Discovery Channel gave the Frats their own show. While it was only three episodes long, Kevin & Drew Unleashed gave hardcore Race fans a second look at the team, as they travelled the country, meeting new people and working odd jobs. And this was the toughest recap gig I ever had, because these two are hate-proof. Seeing them in action puts a smile on my face. They're big, they're bad, they're bald...and one day, they might come to your town!
