'Amazing Race' 20: Big Brother Rachel Reilly, Brendon Villegas in cast

By
Big Brother winner Rachel Reilly and her fiancé Brendon Villegas are among the cast for the 20th instalment of The Amazing Race.

The couple are fresh off their second stint on Big Brother this past summer, which saw Reilly win the $500,000 (£320,924) grand prize.

Reilly and Villegas will compete against ten other teams as The Amazing Race travels through 22 cities on five continents, including stops in remote locations like Paraguay and Azerbaijan.

They will be joined this season by a pair of twins, a duo of border patrol agents and married clowns.

This year's contestants will be forced to push themselves to the limit as they skydive in Argentina, search the German castle that inspired Cinderella and find their way through the 'Garden of Eden' in Africa.

Last season's Amazing Race finale saw engaged Ernie Halvorsen and Cindy Chiang triumph in the finals to win the grand prize.

The Amazing Race premieres Sunday, February 19 at 8/7c on CBS.
