Meet the New Amazing Race Cast: Chippendales! Goat farmers! A Lumberjack! Oh My! (PHOTOS)

  • 2comments

CBS has announced the cast of The Amazing Race's upcoming 21st season, which means it's time to make some snap judgments based on looks, occupations, and little else. As usual, there are some interesting duos—including a pair of Chippendales dancers and the guys from that Planet Green reality show called The Fabulous Beekman Boys.

As for the game itself, the network is promising "the biggest twist ever," where if the same team wins both the first leg of the race and the last leg of the race, they will double their money and win a $2 million grand prize instead of $1 million grand prize. (Doesn't seem like much of a "twist," but hooray for higher stakes, I guess?) Along the way, "teams will travel through three continents, nine countries, and cover more than 25,000 miles, where they’ll be faced with a 10-story rappel in Los Angeles, frying an egg on their heads in Indonesia, working as “rat collectors” in Bangladesh and revisiting one of the Race’s most infamous Roadblocks in the Netherlands in this season’s 'Switchback.'"

Sounds about right. Click through the photo gallery below to meet the new cast, then let's hear your first impressions in the comments.
