Fresh off a new website design, successful cookbook, and a fourth annual Sharon Spring Harvest Festival, "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" are gearing up for a return to television tonight.
The Cooking Channel has taken over for the now-defunct Planet Green as the official new home for our favorite gay organic farmers/entrepreneurs. Tonight's Season 2 debut is the start of a ratings test to gauge whether the network's audience might start the cameras rolling for a third season.
Of course, if you're not a Cooking Channel subscriber, fear not — Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell will also debut as a team on CBS' reality series "The Amazing Race."
On the profile page for their Amazing Race team, Kilmer-Purcell says winning the $2 million prize would mean some big changes at the Beekman farm. "If we win, we could finally be together under the same roof every night for the first time in three years," the Sharon-Springs-to-NYC commuter says. "Being apart during the workweek has been a struggle and gone on far too long."
As for Brent, he says the biggest challenge facing him and Josh will be communication "and the fact we both think we are always in the right."
Season 2 of "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" hits the Cooking Channel tonight (9/20) at 10 p.m. ET. The "Amazing Race" premieres Sept. 30.
