It’s been a long wait for “Amazing Race” fans, but CBS has finally confirmed the cast members who will be competing in the upcoming 30th Season of the show.
The new cast will feature teams with pre-existing relationships, returning to the format the show has used most often, with the exception being Season 26 and 29. Season 26 saw half the teams meeting their partners at the starting line, while Season 29 consisted solely of strangers who were then competing together. This time around the cast will feature athletes, musicians, reality stars and even competitive eaters.
