File this one under Bizarre Rumours: a Seven Network source suggests that troubled footballer Ben Cousins is in the running to host the Australian version of The Amazing Race.
I'm sure the fact that Ben has a two-part documentary premiering on Seven this week has absolutely nothing to do with the timing of rumours.
I don't know why Seven doesn't just give The Great Outdoorsman Tom Williams the Amazing Race gig. Sure, he's the predictable choice but we all know what happened last time Seven gave a hosting job to an out-there candidate, cough Matthew Newton cough.
Other contenders include Daniel MacPherson, Luke Jacobz and Phil Keoghan, who hosts the US version.
