Early Wednesday morning, CBS announced the hopefuls that will be racing around the world in the Emmy award winning reality competition for $1 Million. In a previous interview, host Phil Keoghan confirmed that the $2 Million grand prize for the team who wins the first leg will not be included in the upcoming season of the race. But that’s not to say the production team doesn’t have some other twists and turns up their sleeves, we’re sure! The 22nd season of the show kicks off February 17 at 8/7c on CBS. Check out the cast below which includes descendants of John Wayne & Daniel Boone, as well as pro hockey brothers and more! Check out the cast list below! We’ll have photos and videos uploaded soon!
What twists can we expect from Phil? The team that wins the FIRST leg of the race will win TWO express passes. One they will keep for themselves, but the other must be given to another team before the conclusion of the fourth leg.
