Those teams include country group Stealing Angels band members Caroline Cutbirth and Jennifer Kuhle, professional hockey players and brothers Bates and Anthony Battaglia and a pair of hard-hitting roller derby moms Mona Egender and Beth Bandimere. Teams will travel through five continents and nine countries as they face treacherous challenges like skydiving over Bora Bora, hunting for scorpions in Botswana and scaling the north face of Switzerland's Eiger Mountain.
This season will also introduce a new twist on the Express Pass, which allows a team to skip one task during the race. The first team to check into the first pit stop will earn two Express Passes, one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another team by the end of the fourth leg.
