ABC announces cast for ‘Expedition Impossible’ (Yep, its another amazing race coming to you in June!)

EXPEDITION-IMPOSSIBLE

Now that Mark Burnett is stealing some thunder away from American Idol with The Voice, is he now hoping to suck a little steam out of The Amazing Race?

You be the judge: Burnett is the man behind a new summer reality show for ABC dubbedExpedition Impossible, which features 13 teams of three players who will travel across deserts, mountains and rivers in the “exotic, fabled Kingdom of Morocco.” Fun? Each week a new stage of the expedition will be revealed to the competitors, who must find a way to work together to complete the trip. After 10 legs of competition, one team will cross the finish line.  Winners each receive $50,000, a Ford Explorer (nice product placement) and the privilege of never having to be called members of the Fab 3, Mom’s Army, or Grandpa’s Warriors ever again.

You think we’re kidding? Check out the monikers given to the 13 teams, which start the expedition on Tuesday, June 21. (My money is on the fishermen. Not so much for the gypsies):

Here’s Joe Sanfilippo and dory partner Marc Duval Getting In Some Early Season Dory Race Training

and after a hard fought Dory Race Win-

You may recognize Joe Sanfilippo from his interviews down at the dock, he is one of our lobstermen.  If not here he is in the RunGloucester Race-

Here’s Nino Sanfilippo Taking Home The 1998 Greasy Pole Flag-

Here is Joe Sanfilippo’s Chevy pick up truck.

Joe carries the normal stuff that skiff lobstermen carry in the back of their pick up trucks- fuel jugs, water jugs, covered fish totes to put bait in, some random buoys.

What you might also notice in the back of Joe’s truck are the dory oars and bench set up that he uses to train for the upcoming International Dory races. Joe is an avid rower and always a contender to represent Gloucester with his partner in the International Dory Races between Gloucester and Lunenburg.

He lobsters out of a 22 foot Eastern skiff after work and on weekends with his son Ryan.

    I love Survivor and The Amazing Race; I will definitely tune in to see Mark Burnett’s take on The Amazing Race.

    But $50,000 each? That’s kinda cheap if you ask me. Survivor and The Amazing Race both award $1 million to the winner(s)!

    Finally! Some big-hearted guys from Gloucester who can get it done on Reality T.V.!!!

  8. Ripsi-Lu says:

    GO SANFILIPPO BOYS !!!!! SHOW THEM HOW IT’S DONE !!!! : )

  9. Bob Ryan says:

    Go ahead and spread the word to friends across the nation. Have them post a note of support on the ABC website. They are monitored and the more the networks see affection for Gloucester and Cape Ann, the more likely they will continue to draw from our talent pool in all areas. And, yes Kathleen, what a great Greasy Pole image. Go Fishermen!!
