The Amazing Race Season 22 Cast and Twist

Entertainment Weekly revealed the new cast of Amazing Race today. Amongst the teams are members of a country music group, former NHL player and his brother, and YouTube Channel Hosts.

As for new twists the first team to complete the first leg wins two express passes – One to keep for themselves and one to give to another team before the end of the fourth leg. I can see this causing some conflict but I am hoping for less of the friendly play displayed in season 21.

I’ll be back before the season starts with my team nicknames for this season and my preseason pick for who will win Season 22.

Check EW.com for the photo gallery of the teams.
