THE AMAZING RACE 16: Meet the Cast

January 21, 2010 by  

CBS announced the 11 Teams set to compete in the 16th edition of THE AMAZING RACE, premiering Sunday, Feb. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award nominee Phil Keoghan is the host.

Contestants will travel nearly 40,000 miles across five continents and eight countries. Eleven Teams start off by navigating through the congested streets of Los Angeles and, for the first time ever, must rely solely on public transportation to make their way to LAX. The Teams’ first destination lies in Chile where they will encounter one of the most daunting Roadblocks in the history of the series. In their ongoing battle for the one million dollar prize, Teams will participate in a grueling World War I reenactment in France, retrace the early days of the iconic rock group, The Beatles, and come face-to-face with one of the world’s most infamous villains.

Season 16 features Teams from all walks of life, including couples, parents, siblings, friends, models, lawyers, detectives and even cowboys. And most importantly the race will feature Jeff and Jordin from BIG BROTHER! No big surprise who I’m rooting for!

THE AMAZING RACE isn’t only one of the best reality shows on TV, it’s one of the best shows on any network. I’m officially excited!

    As much as I like Jeff and Jordin, I prefer Amazing Race to stick with average Joes and not “celebrities” from other reality shows. I’ve found it annoying in the past when they did this–Allison from BB, and especially with Rob/Amber (since I can’t stand him). It usually takes me a little while before I have my favorite team–the race usually starts with who I want to see gone as there are too many teams to remember them all. Once the number of teams is reduced, then I can pick my who I want to win.

    The Amazing Race is my favorite reality show since the beginning, I have watched them all…My only problem is Why is it not shown in HD. I don’t get it. Survivor is in HD, and with all the beautiful scenery in the race, it’s a shame not to be in HD.
