CBS, arguably the pioneer of competition-based reality shows, is ready to kick off season 20 of its global adventure “The Amazing Race.” The 60-minute premiere will air this Sunday, Feb. 19 at 8:00 p.m.
For reality fans, the most notable team on the cast this season is engaged couple Brendan & Rachel, who have appeared twice on CBS’ other reality show “Big Brother.” Rachel actually won this past summer’s season of “Big Brother,” and fresh off a win, hopes to continue the streak.
Other noteworthy pairs include a team of border patrol agents, an Iraq War veteran and his wife, two female federal agents, cousins who call themselves “Double Trouble,” two self-professed “guidos” that reek of “Jersey Shore,” married clowns, and “two poor country boys” who claim to be “from the other side of the tracks.”
Who will claim this season’s $1,000,000 grand prize? Tune in to the eight-time Emmy Award-winning series to find out.
