January 25, 2012 09:27 AM by Lisa Princ

The Amazing Race returns to CBS on February 19, and as the show celebrates its 20th season, an interesting cast has just been revealed! What would you say if we told you that the new cast includes Big Brother winner, Rachel Reilly, and her beau, Brendon Villegas? It’s true! Read on for the full cast information!

The Amazing Race returns in a few weeks, and CBS announced the new cast earlier today. In a press release CBS said:

“This season, which marks the 20th sprint around the globe for the series, will make first time visits to Paraguay, Azerbaijan and other exotic locations. Along the way, Teams will travel through five continents, 22 cities and nearly 40,000 miles.

This season’s Racers will endure one of the most competitive courses ever, as they find themselves skydiving in Argentina, training with the Masai warriors in Tanzania, racing through Africa’s ‘Garden of Eden,’ putting their taste buds to the test with one of Italy’s most popular cuisines and searching for King Ludwig’s quarters in the German castle that served as the inspiration for the castle in ‘Sleeping Beauty.’

This season’s cast includes a pair of border patrol agents, twins, dating divorcees, last year’s winner of BIG BROTHER, Rachel Reilly, and her fiancé and fellow Houseguest, Brendon Villegas.”
