CBS has announced the cast for Season 20 of The Amazing Race. Yes, Season 20. We don't really understand how that happened, either. But the Emmy-winning reality competition is showing no signs of slowing down, with eleven new pairs of globe-trotting adventurers primed for another season of bickering, zip-lining, and eating really gross foods in such exotic locales as Paraguay and Azerbaijan. (Neither of which, we're informed, is currently an occupied war zone. So phew!) So let's be good reality TV fans and size up the new batch of competitors based on their physical appearance and whatever basic biographical information we can find on the Amazing Race website.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet your players:
Names: Art Velez (43) & J.J. Carrell (42)
Hometowns: Temecula, CA & Carlsbad, CA
Occupations: Border Patrol Agents
Assessment: These guys are their own cheesy cop show, a hybrid of CHIPS and Baywatch that sees them driving ATVs around the Southern California coastline and arresting drug smugglers. They have seen hard action, folks. TAR should be a cakewalk. (Famous last words.)
Possible Catchphrase: "We got this!"
Names: Elliot & Andrew Weber (28)
Hometowns: Scottsdale, AZ & Menlo Park, CA
Occupations: Musician & Pro Soccer Player
Assessment: Hot twins with an instant leg up on the competition, simply because all identical twins can communicate telepathically. (Right? I think I read that in Time magazine once.)
Possible Catchphrase: "Twin power!" (Spoken with their minds.)
Names: Dave Brown Jr. (33) & Rachel Brown (30)
Hometown: Madison, WI
Occupations: U.S. Army Officer & Project Manager
Assessment: This is a solider returned safely from the Iraq War and his wife. Brown refers to something about the "reintegration process" being "a bit trying," but we wish these two the best, and basically if you don't root for them, you hate America.
Possible Catchphrase: "File in, honey!"
Names: Nary Ebeid (32) & Jamie Graetz (33)
Hometown: Los Angeles
Occupations: Federal Agents
Assessment: The second, real-life cheesy cop show in the bunch stars this pair of photogenic female agents, who wield heavy artillery and generally kick ass for a living. Could do some serious damage.
Possible Catchphrase: "We're NOT your 'angels,' dude."
Names: Brendon Villegas (31) & Rachel Reilly (27)
Hometown: Los Angeles
Occupations: Ph.D. Student & Event Hostess
Assessment: Big Brother Season 13 winner Reilly also found her fiancee during the show, where they "made a lifelong alliance and moved to L.A." So, career reality stars. Her voice is annoying.
Possible Catchphrase: "How's our lighting?"
Names: Kerri Paul (30) & Stacy Bowers (30)
Hometown: Gulfport, MI
Occupations: Program Coordinator & Self-Employed/"Basketball Wife"
Assessment: These cousins are "double trouble since birth." And according to the video above, they also seem capable of riding and repairing tractors? So that might come in handy.
Possible Catchphrase: "Dunk it, girl!"
Names: Joey "Fitness" Lasalla (29) & Danny Horal (27)
Hometowns: Whitestone, NY & Holbrook, NY
Occupations: Trainer/Supplement Company Owner & Nightclub Promoter
Assessment: Oy, geez. I think we know everything we need to know about these two by the backwards baseball caps and 'roided bodies.
Possible Catchphrase: "Dunk it, girl!"
Names: Dave Gregg (44) & Cherie Gregg (44)
Hometowns: New Port Richey, FL
Occupations: Self-described "ambassadors of laughter." (Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey clowns.)
Assessment: Everyone hates clowns, right?
Possible Catchphrase: "Let's pass this Roadblock using the healing power of laughter!"
Names: Vanessa Macias (31) & Ralph Kelley (39)
Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Occupations: Freelance Writer & Bar Owner
Assessment: Two divorcees who are currently dating. Ralph basically has the body of The Thing, and Vanessa is cute. Not much else to say here, except, good luck, guys!
Possible Catchphrase: "Stand on my bicep and jump!"
Names: Misa (27) and Maiya Tanaka (25)
Hometown: San Diego
Occupations: Golf Pro & Car Buyer
Assessment: Don't let the sweet exteriors fool you. Or do. Whatever makes their deadly force less painful as they crush the life out of you with their powerful legs.
Possible Catchphrase: "WE DRINK YOUR WARM BLOOD! HAHAHAHA!
Names: William "Bopper" Minton (41) and Mark Jackson (45)
Hometowns: Manchester, KY
Occupations: Motorcycle Mechanic & Former State Inspector
Assessment: Good ol' boys from "the wrong side of the tracks." Just excited to be on TV.
Possible Catchphrase: "We earned this Michelob Ultra!"
The Amazing Race returns for Season 20 on Sunday, February 19 at 8pm on CBS.

I doubt the clowns this season will be as beloved as the original clown guys.
Brenchel may make some of the BB Gang watch TAR for once, so I figure I'll deal. What is nice is that on TAR they seldom focus on one team as much as other shows.
