The globe-trotting reality series The Amazing Race will return on February 17, 2013 at 8pm and in support of the upcoming premiere, CBS has released the names of the competitors hoping to win the $1 million grand prize. Season 22 will feature 11 teams as well as a brand new twist…ready for it? The winner of the first leg of the race will receive two Express Passes. One pass they will use on themselves when they need an edge in the race and the other they have to give to another team by the end of leg four.
 
Once again, Phil Keoghan will be on board as The Amazing Race.
 
CBS says that this season’s teams will make stops in Bora Bora where they’ll skydive, New Zealand where they’ll compete in a Shemozzle race, and they’ll embark on a scorpion hunt in Botswana.
