CBS has announced the 11 teams that will race around the world during the 22nd season of "The Amazing Race," which premieres Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on CBS.

This time around, there's a new twist: The first team to check in at the first pit stop will earn two "Express Passes" -- one to keep for themselves and one they must give to another team by the end of the fourth leg of the race.
Destinations include Bora Bora, New Zealand, Botswana and Switzerland and the teams include twin brothers, firefighters, father/son cancer survivors and female country singers who are descendants of John Wayne and Daniel Boone. See the full cast in our photo gallery.
The teams are as follows:
