Yesterday CBS announced the racers on the next season of Amazing Race which premieres Sunday, February 14, 2010.  As we reported earlier contestants from last years Big Brother, Jeff and Jordan, are racing as the blue team.  Who else is participating?  Read below to find out the names and then stay tuned for our exclusive bios!

During this season of Amazing Race, contestants will travel nearly 40,000 miles across five continents and eight countries. Eleven Teams start off by navigating through the congested streets of Los Angeles and, for the first time ever, must rely solely on public transportation to make their way to LAX. The Teams’ first destination lies in Chile where they will encounter one of the most daunting Roadblocks in the history of the series. In their ongoing battle for the one million dollar prize, Teams will participate in a grueling World War I reenactment in France, retrace the early days of the iconic rock group, The Beatles, and come face-to-face with one of the world’s most infamous villains.

Season 16 features Amazing Race Teams from all walks of life, including couples, parents, siblings, friends, models, lawyers, detectives and even cowboys.
