Amazing Race

The new season of CBS' The Amazing Race is about to get a lot more fabulous. Goat farmers Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, also known as Planet Green's Fabulous Beekman Boys, are one of 11 new teams racing around the world when the 21st season of the reality competition series begins Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c. Joining the reality stars are heavy metal rocker and former member of White Lion and Megadeth James LoMenzo, double-amputee professional snowboarder Amy Purdy and Las Vegas Chippendales dancers Jaymes Vaughan and James Davis.

Teams will compete in challenges through three continents and nine countries, including a 10-story rappel in Los Angeles, frying an egg on their heads in Indonesia and working with rat collectors in Bangladesh. And in a new Amazing Race twist, if the team that wins the first leg of the Race can also finish first in the final leg, they will double their winnings to $2 million.
