The New Cast of Amazing Race Revealed



“The Amazing Race” is heading into its 17th season this fall and will feature a reunited birth mother and daughter, a pair of a cappella singers and a beauty queen.

The season will kick off in a 90-minute premiere on Sunday, Sept. 26. The 11 teams will race through 30 cities in a 32,000-mile journey, which includes stops in Ghana, Bangladesh and the Arctic Circle for the first time in the show’s history.
