In preparation for the return of The Amazing Race this Sunday, host Phil Keoghan previews the 11 new teams and what makes this group so special. (Maybe it’s because they’re having to race through five continents, 22 cities, and nearly 40,000 miles, or what CBS refers to as “one of the most competitive courses ever?”) READ FULL STORY

They’re baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Big Brother repeat offenders Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas have become the latest pair of CBS reality stars to try their hand at sprinting across the globe for a million dollars when season 20 of The Amazing Race kicks off on Feb. 19 at 8pm. The engaged couple will be following in the frequent flier footsteps of Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, Survivor’s Boston Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich (who played twice), Survivor’s Ethan John and Jenna Morasca, as well as Big Brother’s Alison Irwin (and her out of house boyfriend Donny Patrick).
Rachel and Brendon will be competing against 10 other teams, including married clowns, federal agents, border patrol agents, dating divorcees, and, naturally, twins. (The full cast list is below.) Along the way, players will be forced to skydive, train with Massai warriors in Tanzania, and visit the German castle that served as the inspiration for the one in Sleeping Beauty. The show will also be traveling for the first time ever to Paraguay and Azerbaijan. READ FULL STORY

'Survivor' winners Ethan and Jenna head up new 'Amazing Race' cast. Plus: New twists revealed! -- EXCLUSIVE
The Amazing Race has not been shy about having former CBS reality stars on the show. Boston Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich of Survivor fame played twice, while Big Brother‘s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, as well as Alison Irwin (and her non-Big Brother boyfriend Donny) all have appeared on the program. But now, for the first time, two winners will team up to compete as Survivor: Africa champ Ethan Zohn and Survivor: The Amazon victor Jenna Morasca head up the cast for the show’s 19th installment (premiering Sept. 25 on CBS), which will also feature some new twists to the game.
For Zohn, racing across the world with his longtime girlfriend is especially sweet considering his recent medical battles after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “Last year I was attached to a pump in complete isolation in a f—ing hospital room, and now I’m out traveling the world with the woman I love. Whatever happens, it’s gonna be okay,” Ethan told EW.com just before embarking on the race. “But if she screws up, I’m gonna kill her.” READ FULL STORY
