There are so many Reality Shows on television these days, but very few of them are feel-good ones. The best one of them all is Relative Race, and today BYU TV announced that season 12 will debut on September 17th.

The competition series, which is hosted by Dan Debenham, has four teams racing to meet family members they never met, like possibly their parents and siblings.

So every episode leaves happy tears in your eyes because imagine finally meeting the family you always wanted to know. And then having them wanting to be in your life too. I am already getting emotional just thinking about it.

If you have never seen an episode, you can watch all of them on the BYU TV app for free.

On Sunday, Relative Race’s 11th season is going to debut on BYU TV. But they have already moved on to planning for season 12.

Therefore, they are reaching out to the fans for ideas! They want to know what our suggestions are for a daily prize and what you think they should do for a daily penalty. So, if you have some thoughts for them (like I did), then click on this link.

And when you are done, make sure to watch the new season, which will make us cry a lot of happy tears as the contestants meet the family members they never knew about. Gd I love this show, and Dan Debenham, who is doing well with his new cancer treatment.


Relative Race’s Dan Debenham gives an update on his cancer

Last season at the beginning of Relative Race, Dan Debenham announced that he was diagnosed with stage IV prostate cancer earlier in the year and had just finished going through chemotherapy.

Since then, we haven’t gotten an update from the host about how he was doing.

Yesterday, he released a video, and he is looking great. His hair has grown back. But instead of having brown hair, he is now grey. He looks so good that BYU TV won’t let him dye it. And I agree with them.

That is how he is doing on the outside, but what about his cancer? “I finished my chemotherapy. Yet I am starting two new FDA-approved; it’s still clinically chemotherapy, but I don’t get really sick. And I don’t lose my hair. And it is really helping,” he said. “So I am feeling a lot better. And while I still have a long ways to go, I also have my Relative Race family, and that includes all of you…So I am good!”

And he wanted to let us know that he is feeling the love and prayers we have been sending his way.

Hopefully, these new treatments will help him beat cancer, and he will be hosting Relative Race for many more years.

On that note, season 11 debuts on Sunday. And you don’t want to miss the new season of the best reality show on television. You never know which family members the teams are going to meet and which ones are going to make you cry the hardest. There are always tears but happy tears.

I have some good news and some great news.

The good news is that Relative Race will be back for its 11th season on BYUtv on March 26th. The great news is that Dan Debenham will be back as the host.

Debenham announced at the beginning of season 10 that he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer and had just finished his chemo treatment. Since then, we haven’t gotten an update on his health.

But that changed yesterday when they announced the new season. I asked how he was doing, and they told me, “He is feeling well and is in great spirits! He and his family appreciate the support and prayers.” Then they added, “Dan is thrilled to be back!”

And we are thrilled to have him back. He is the heart of the best reality show on television. If you are not watching the show that literally brings families together, then you are missing out on the show that makes you cry happy tears every week. That is because four teams of two get to meet family members they have never met before, thanks to DNA tests proving they are related. So there have been adopted people who meet their birth parents for the first time. If that doesn’t turn you into a blubbering mess, nothing will.


Relative Race’s Dan Debenham reveals he’s battling stage 4 prostate cancer

Relative Race is back for its 10th season on BYU TV on Sunday nights. Before yesterday’s premiere episode started, the show’s host Dan Debenham had a message for the fans of the reality show that helps contestants find the family they never knew about. He revealed that he has been battling stage 4 prostate cancer for over a year and has just finished chemotherapy.

“I wanted to share my journey with all of you. In doing so, I realize that cancer is something that has affected so many of you. Through all my rounds of radiation and chemotherapy, it was my family that was there for me, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Their love, and their prayers, their support, it’s lifted me up and carried me through the tough times,” Debenham said. “I’ve often thought of all of our Relative Race teams throughout the years and their desperate search and sincere hope they’ll find anyone that is family. You know, I often say that Relative Race is a journey like any other. And as I quietly shared my own journey, I am so grateful for the thoughts and the prayers on my behalf. And for those of you who may be on this same journey, know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.”

Today, I ask you to pray for him to beat cancer. Take a few minutes out of your day to pray for a man who has brought joy to many others by bringing families together for the first time.

And to all the men out there, go see your doctor and get your blood checked. A simple PSA test can help you catch prostate cancer early.
