Erik Huffman -- famous from 'Survivor' -- has been busted for domestic violence, with cops claiming he roughed up his costar-turned-wife, Jaime Dugan.

According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, cops responded to a disturbance call at a convenience store out in Spartanburg, SC way back in late January ... where they say they ran into Erik -- who told them he was trying to locate his spouse, Jaime.

The police say Erik relayed he was worried about Jaime after she'd taken off in their car following a spat over accusations of cheating -- namely, her accusing him of having an affair. In the report, the cops say Erik admitted they got into a grabbing match over his phone.

Cops say Jaime told them he just wanted to make sure she was safe and medically OK ... claiming she was saying she wanted to harm herself.

However, when cops finally caught up with Jaime sometime later ... they claim she was singing a different tune -- and telling a completely different story, one that alleged Erik was getting physical with her.

Police say Jamie blasted Erik for telling them she wanted to hurt herself -- and went on to say it was a blatant lie.

She proceeded to tell cops she had actually found his burner phone while they were in the car, but she alleges he twisted it out of her hand ... claiming he'd broken her middle fingernail and left her with a few small cuts on her hand as well.

Cops say she told them she drove off while he went into the store 'cause she didn't feel safe ... so quite the opposite of what Erik was saying.

Ultimately, cops determined Erik was the primary aggressor and they arrested him later that day on a third-degree domestic violence charge -- with him posing for this mug shot as he was being booked into the jail there.

Erik and Jaime met and fell in love while filming "Survivor: China" in 2007. They got engaged and married in 2009 and share a son named Harper.

John Harbaugh Clowns Rex Ryan ... Bet He's Bad On 'Amazing Race!!!'

Baltimore Ravens

Want to bet on "The Amazing Race" this season? Avoid putting money on Rex Ryan at all costs -- so says his former co-worker, John Harbaugh, who told reporters Thursday he thinks the ex-Jets & Bills head man has no shot of winning!

"I think he'll get lost," the Ravens head coach said with a smile in a meeting with media members. "Right out of the gates."

Harbaugh appeared to be at least partially kidding -- after all, he and Ryan have been good friends for years after coaching together at a couple stops in their coaching careers, and have no doubt poked fun at each other a few times in their meetups.

But, John made it clear he doesn't have too much hope for Ryan on the famous travel challenge show regardless.

"It depends on his partner, actually," said Harbaugh, who admitted he watches the show with his family often. "It depends if Rex wants to listen or not."

"You can't blitz your way out of the airport," he said with a chuckle, "or something like that."

59-year-old Ryan is all set to be a competitor on the show's 34th season with his golf bud, 40-year-old Tim Mann. The show is officially slated to air next month.

Ex-NFL Coach Rex Ryan Competing On 'Amazing Race'

Rex Ryan is putting his beloved feet to the test -- the ex-NFL coach is slated to compete on the newest season of "The Amazing Race" ... in hopes of winning a million bucks.

The former Bills and Jets coach will be teaming up with his partner, Tim Mann ... and the duo will be traveling around the world and competing in several challenges.

If you haven't seen the show, it's been on the air for 33 seasons ... so it might be too late to bring you up to speed. It's basically a scavenger hunt on steroids.

59-year-old Rex coached in the NFL for decades -- he won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens as a defensive line coach ... and led the New York Jets to back-to-back AFC championship games.

He most recently had an analyst job with ESPN ... appearing on "Sunday NFL Countdown."

40-year-old Mann is Ryan's friend of 6 years/golf buddy ... and is a probation officer.

Ryan's team has gotta hope they do better than TMZ's duo did back in 2015.

'The Amazing Race' Shocking Cuts Made to All 'Big Bro' Edition

Die-hard "Big Brother" fans might not be happy about this -- "The Amazing Race" just made some huge last-minute cuts to its upcoming all-BB edition ... including winners and fan favorites.

Our 'TAR' sources tell us ... America's Favorite Houseguest on Season 17, James Huling, and Season 18's Corey Brooks will no longer be partnering up on 'TAR' because CBS called them Thursday night to inform them they've been axed.

Caleb Reynolds, aka Beast Mode Cowboy, was also told he's no longer wanted for the upcoming season, and perhaps most shockingly ... former enemies turned friends -- Josh Martinez and Paul Abrahamian -- also got dropped from the cast.

We're told the news came as a huge surprise to the 'BB' alums because they'd all gone through the interview process and thought they were set ... but production just told them they are moving in a different direction.

On the bright side ... we've learned BB14 winner Ian Terry's been added to the cast, Rachel Reilly's still in and will team up with her sister Elissa, and past stars Da'Vonne Rogers and Bridgette Dunning will be a duo.

We reached out to CBS to get some more feedback on their decisions, and were told the network has "a new casting twist for the next edition of The Amazing Race that will be announced shortly."

'The Amazing Race' Teammates Josh & Paul Were 'Big Brother' Enemies

The latest duo to join the new season of "The Amazing Race" once viciously competed against each other on "Big Brother," and now they'll be battling for $1 million.

TMZ has learned ... Josh Martinez and Paul Abrahamian are teaming up for the "Big Brother" mash-up season of 'Race.' They were on season 19 of 'BB,' which Josh ended up winning the $500k grand prize ... and Paul came in second.

Despite the fact Paul bitch slapped Josh while they were in the 'BB' house -- we're told they actually became good friends afterward. We'll see if that holds up though, while they race around the world.


Paul and Josh join other former houseguests Rachel Reilly and Caleb Reynolds, as well as James Huling and Corey Brooks. The 'Race' starts at the end of the month in New Guinea.

'The Amazing Race' Adds More Past Season Winners ... To 'Big Brother' Mash-Up

The competition on the 'Amazing Race' and "Big Brother" mash-up is gonna be fierce, because it's stocked with a lot of previous winners and fan favorites hauling ass around the world.

Sources tell us James Huling, who won America's Favorite Houseguest on season 17 of "Big Brother," will be partnering with Corey Brooks, who appeared on season 18. James also appeared on season 18, but didn't win.

As we previously reported ... "Big Brother" alums Caleb Reynolds and Rachel Reilly are also in the race. Rachel won season 13 of 'BB' and Caleb's got experience from being on two seasons of "Survivor" too.

We're told the guys are calling themselves Team Tejas Tacos and they leave for Papua New Guinea at the end of the month to begin filming.

'The Amazing Race' Caleb Reynolds & Rachel Reilly Packing For 'Big Brother' Edition

"Big Brother" alums Caleb Reynolds and Rachel Reillyare taking their backstabbing and bitching to the road ... TMZ has learned they're among the former houseguests who've signed on for the new season of "The Amazing Race."

As we previously reported, the show got some inspo from last season's winners -- Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf -- who previously met and became a couple on "Big Brother," so production decided to pool contestants from past seasons of "Big Brother" for the new season.

Caleb, who's also known as Beast Mode Cowboy, appeared on season 16 of "Big Brother". He was also on Seasons 32 and 34 of "Survivor," so he's got some good experience for the around-the-world trek.

As for Rachel ... she's one to watch, too, after appearing on Season 12 of "Big Brother", and then winning Season 13 during which she met now-husband Brendon Villegas. Brenchel then went on to come in third place on 'Amazing Race 20' and 'All-Stars.'

No word if Brendon is Rachel's partner this time around, but we wouldn't put it past them.

'Amazing Race' Winners We Want Evel Dick to Get an Invite!!!


"The Amazing Race" winners Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf -- who met and became a couple on "Big Brother" -- have another bright idea for CBS ... invite "Big Brother's" most polarizing contestants ever to the race.

Cody and Jessica -- who tell us they will NOT return to 'Amazing Race' next season -- tell TMZ ... if there's one guy they'd like to see on the all "Big Brother," 'Amazing Race' cast ... it's Dick "Evel Dick" Donato, the 'BB' season 8 winner and season 13 houseguest. Donato was famous on 'BB' for, shall we say, being a jerk. But an entertaining jerk, for sure.

Check it out ... that's exactly why Cody and Jessica want him back. They've also got some clutch travel tips. As we first reported ... CBS has reached out to several past 'BB' houseguests and has locked down its list of competitors for the new season.

'The Amazing Race' Cody and Jessica Inspire All 'Big Brother' Alum Edition!!!

"The Amazing Race" winners Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf -- who previously met and became a couple on "Big Brother" -- may have led CBS to strike while the iron's hot ... and feature an all-'BB' cast for an upcoming season.

Sources close to production of 'Amazing Race' tell TMZ ... the show reached out to several past "Big Brother" houseguests and has locked down its list of competitors for the new season, which will begin filming soon.

We're told the all-"Big Brother" edition of 'Amazing Race' will feature at least one past 'BB' winner, but several other popular winners declined for family or career reasons. Still, we're told CBS is happy with the final cast ... and they're ready to race around the world.

Our sources say the idea for the "Big Brother"-themed season of 'Amazing Race' came from the success of season 30, which saw former 'BB' stars Cody and Jessica dominate.

We're told the couple most likely won't be returning for the 'BB' edition to try to win again, but we broke the story -- they're engaged now ... so they probably have their hands full anyway.

'Amazing Race' Stars Engaged! After Mountaintop Proposal


'Amazing Race' couple Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf have been through a lot together -- in the public eye -- and now they can add getting engaged to the list.

We got this video of Cody proposing to Jessica at the top of Runyon Canyon Park's hiking trail in L.A. Tuesday ... and there were no shortage of tears flowing when she said yes.

We're told Cody ran ahead of her to make it a surprise, and told the group of people in the area his plan ... which is how he had a nice cheering section. Quality move.

You may recall ... Cody and Jessica met on last season of "Big Brother" and became one of its showmances, but not without controversy. Cody was portrayed as a villain on the show, and Jessica was slammed for unwanted butt-poking of other houseguests.

The 2 always stuck together, though ... and now it appears that's their goal for life.

'Amazing Race' Bikini Model Training with Boxing Champ ... What a Knockout!


One of the smoking hot models on "Amazing Race" knew she needed to toughen up for the show -- so she got in the ring with boxing champ Victor Ortiz!

Jenn Lee (see bikini pics below) says she hooked up with Ortiz back in June to work on her strength and conditioning for the race around the world ... and it paid off in a big way.


In fact, she's STILL training with the guy even though the show's in the can ... because, as it turns out, boxing training is great training for bikini season.

'Amazing Race' Winner My Government Name Sucks

Season 4 'Amazing Race' winner Reichen Lehmkuhl can't stand his last name because it's too hard to pronounce ... which raises the question -- why can he stand his first name?

Reichen, who once dated Lance Bass, filed a name change petition with the L.A. County Superior Court ... asking to chop his last name in half ... from Lehmkuhl to Kuhl.

Reichen explained in his legal docs, "I don't like my last name. It is too hard for people to spell or pronounce."

It begs the question ... why not get a 2 for 1 special and mess with his first name? Reichen is pronounced rye-hen ... kinda like the German version of Ryan.

No matter what, it's easier to pronounce than the L.A. County Coroner.

TNA Star Robbie E Yoga Makes Me Fart But It Helped Me Prep for 'Amazing Race'

TNA wrestler Robbie E might take the wind-relieving pose a little too literally ... 'cause even though yoga helped him prepare for the "Amazing Race" ... it turned him into a human gasbag.

Robbie and his GF Brooke Tessmacher teamed up for the CBS reality show -- which has already been shot and premieres in September -- and Robbie tells TMZ the yoga helped him get mentally and physically ready for the grueling challenges on the road.

In fact, Robbie got some support from fellow wrestlers DJ Z and Jessie Godderz who teamed up for some "broga" sessions before and after the "Race" ... where Robbie fessed up to the pose that turns him into Captain Flatulation!

Meantime, Brooke used other methods to prepare -- mainly something we like to call, "Puttin' In Twerk." Miley Cyrus would be proud ...

Ex-'Amazing Race' Finalist Boozin' at Jason Aldean Show Before DWI Arrest

Jason Aldean's been dragged into another drunken controversy ... because ex-"Amazing Race" finalist Vanessa Macias told cops she boozed up at the country singer's concert before her DWI arrest last week.

According to the San Antonio police report, obtained by TMZ, 32-year-old Macias admitted to cops she drank three vodka sodas at the Aldean concert on Thursday ... then hit up a local strip club with a friend.

We did the research -- the strip club in question features FEMALE dancers ... just in case you were wondering.

As we reported, Macias was arrested around 2 AM Friday morning after police pulled her over and say they detected a strong odor of alcohol on her breath.

According to the report, cops say Macias was driving erratically on a highway and failed to make a turning signal, so cops initiated the traffic stop. She was arrested soon after on suspicion of DWI.

Unfortunately, the police report doesn't elaborate on the strip club visit.
