Rob McArthur, who is deaf and a teacher’s aide and assistant football coach at the school, is featured with his 25-year-old son, Corey McArthur, a hearing child of deaf adults, a deaf school news release states.
Increasing the excitement on campus is the fact that they are the husband and son of California School for the Deaf, Riverside, Superintendent April McArthur.
The show’s new season will begin Wednesday, Sept. 27, on CBS and Paramount Plus at 9:30 p.m.
The school is inviting the public to The Amazing Race Kickoff Premiere Watch Party on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 6:30 p.m. in the campus’ Multi-Purpose Activity Center.
“On the show, Rob and Corey communicate with each other in American Sign Language and share some personal stories,” the release states. “The McArthur team wears red, which happens to be the school spirit color of California School for the Deaf, Riverside.”
The father-and-son duo are expected to attend Wednesday’s event.
In recognition of the show, the deaf school is celebrating Deaf Community Cultural Week from Monday, Sept. 25, through Friday, Sept. 29. The commemoration is inspired by the World Federation of the Deaf’s 2023 theme, “An Amazing World Where Deaf People Everywhere Can Sign Anywhere.”
Meanwhile, the deaf school will be rooting for the McArthur team on TV.
“It is a rare opportunity for the Deaf community to find representation on reality shows, giving the community much to celebrate regardless of the outcome,” the release states.
