New Kids on the Block's Jonathan Knight Admits He's 'Nervous' About Running The Amazing Race with Boyfriend

Originally posted 01/20/2015 12:00PM

Jonathan Knight has traveled the world as a member of New Kids on the Block, but he's not sure anything could prepare him for competing on The Amazing Race with his boyfriend, Harley Rodriguez.

"I don't know if I am looking forward to that much time together with him. It's going to be interesting."

In fact, since meeting through a mutual friend in 2008 (when Knight was in Los Angeles working on the NKOTB reunion album and tour), the couple have come to relish their time apart.

Eleven teams will embark on a race around the world for the 23rd installment of show, which premieres Sept. 29 (8 p.m. ET). Two of them are former NFL teammates.
