Christie Valdiserri, a 27-year-old professional dancer from Philadelphia, PA who currently resides in North Hollywood, CA, tested positive for COVID-19 and has therefore been replaced by Claire Rehfuss, a 25-year-old AI engineer from Chagrin Falls, OH, who currently resides in New York, NY.
"This all-new group is in for a high-stakes summer full of Big Risks and Big Rewards, where one wrong gamble could cost them everything," CBS teased in a press release announcing the cast.
