The 30th season of CBS’s globe-trotting competition series The Amazing Race will premiere on January 3, 2018. The network’s just announced the 22 individuals who make up the 11 teams that will race around the world as they vie for the grand prize of one million dollars. Among the upcoming season’s competitors are retired NBA players, IndyCar drivers, X-Games champions, competitive eaters, and members of the Well Strung string quartet.

Big Brother season 19’s Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf also team up for The Amazing Race season 30. The 2018 season also includes twins and a team of lifeguards. Phil Keoghan returns to host the award-winning reality competition show.

Per CBS: “Teams begin their adventure in Washington Square Park in New York City and immediately travel to their first destination, Iceland, where they must traverse a massive canyon high above the Geitargljufur River. Along the Race, teams will travel to 10 countries, 21 cities and over 29,000 miles in the quest to cross the finish line of The Amazing Race first and win the one million dollar prize.”
