On Tuesday CBS revealed the 11 teams who will compete in this fall's edition of The Amazing Race. The network also included additional details about the possible $1 million prize for each player on the winning team.
This year's cast includes the stock pairings of best friends, dating couples and siblings. Added to the mix are heavy metal rockers, Monster Truck aficionados, a double amputee professional snowboarder, and two Chippendales dancers.
Ads for the show's 21st season have indicated that the winning team could win $2 million, double the usual prize since the program's inception. However, the increase is not guaranteed. Only the team that wins the first leg of the race will be eligible for the bonus. They will have to survive the remaining legs and be the first to cross the finish line to claim the top prize.
