The Amazing Race 21: Meet The Cast

Move one step at a time

Next month, The Amazing Race becomes old enough to drink, unveiling its 21st season. Kicking off in Los Angeles, eleven teams will race around the world for the $1 million grand prize, making stops along the way in Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Netherlands, among other breathtaking countries. A new twist will be revealed that is said to raise the stakes for the entire season and teams will have to revisit a past challenge that is one of the most memorable Road Blocks in Amazing Race history.

 

Among this season’s racers are Chippendals dancers, monster truckers, a heavy metal rocker, a double amputee, and The Fabulous Beekman Boys! Get to know them a little bit below and perhaps, pick an early favorite to root for.
