The Amazing Race kicked off the premier of it’s 16th edition last night, and there to compete for the $1 million grand prize was America’s favorite couple from Big BrotherJordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder.

The duo got off to a great start as they managed to come in first place after the first race to Chile. Though, the winners of the show will not be known for weeks to come, Jeff, 31, and Jordan, 22, open up about their Amazing Race experience in a new interview with PEOPLE.

The best news of all? The couple is still very much together and even credit their time on the Amazing Race for making them “stronger.”

Excerpts from their interview is below -

Were you fans of the Amazing Race before signing on?
Jordan: It’s kind of funny. I’ve been part of two reality shows and I had never watched either one before. I had to YouTube it, just like I did with Big Brother and figure out what everything meant, like ‘detour,’ ‘roadblock’, and all that other stuff.
Jeff: I had watched it a couple of times, but I wasn’t a die-hard fan.

Did your experience together on BB help you, or hurt you?
Jeff: I think it helped us, and played to our strengths. I’m sure that brothers and sisters, or mothers and daughters had issues after a week of being together non-stop. What was a strain on other teams was a positive for us; we didn’t have to worry about being together all of the time, we were already use to it.

Did traveling together put too much strain on you two, or do you think that it actually made you stronger?
Jeff: It was definitely a strain…
Jordan: (interrupting) I think it made us stronger!
Jeff: (laughs) Let me finish. It was definitely a strain on the relationship, but it definitely made us stronger. The fact that we went through the hard times that we did is a testament to our relationship. This show really pushed us to the max, and it was tough, but we’re still a couple, we’re still here, and it show’s a lot that we’re still together.

You two went from being locked in a house for three months with a bunch of lunatics to traversing 5 continents and eight countries in a race against other cutthroat teams. Are you two just gluttons for punishment?
Jeff: (laughs) No, but I look at it as an amazing story, how Jordan and I met, and how things have been working out between us. It’s definitely something to tell the grandkids type of story, and hopefully things keep working out the way they have, because as crazy as it’s been, it’s a serious relationship. I love the way things are and I wouldn’t trade it or change it for anything.

TELL US: DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIER? HOW FAR DO YOU THINK JEFF & JORDAN WILL GO?

CBS has finally unveiled the identities of the 11 teams that will be competing of the 16th season of the Amazing Race. And as previously reported, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will indeed be on the show as a team.

The new season is set to premier on Sunday, February 14 at 8PM ET/PT. Another surprising cast member is 20-year-old Caite Upton, the former Miss South Carolina Teen USA who made headlines and became infamous when she gave a such as nonsensical answer during the interview portion of the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant.

As always, the members of each team already have a pre-existing relationship of some kind. For this season, five of the teams are couples who are married or dating, while four teams feature family members and two are friends or co-workers.

This season’s cast features the usual assortment of models, actresses and model/actresses, it however also features several contestants with more unusual occupations — including a baseball coach, a bull rider, a cowboy, two (soon-to-be former, apparently) undercover detectives, and a 71-year-old personal trainer.

40,000 miles were covered during this season, including visits to five continents and eight countries. The race which began with public transportation to LAX airport (a first for Amazing Race), consisted of the teams flying to Chile, where they encountered “one of the most daunting Roadblocks in the history of the series,” according to CBS. Sounds fun!

Big Brothers Jordan Lloyd, Jeff Schroeder The Amazing Race'

Great news Big Brother fans! Several reports reveal that Jeff Schroeder and Big Brother 11 winner, Jordan Lloyd, will both be appearing on the next season of The Amazing Race.

Witnesses spotted both Jeff and Jordan at the Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday with numerous other teams. Big Brother fan, Danielle Varey, was able to snap a picture of the couple at LAX and posted it to her Twitter account . As you can see, they’re dressed in the familiar Amazing Race uniform of color-coordinated shirts, sweats and backpacks. The photo is below.

Another confirmation is the fact that Jeff has yet to update his twitter account since the 22nd of November. We also reported back in October that both Jeff & Jordan confirmed they were officially a couple. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out on the new season of the Amazing Race.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE JEFF & JORDAN ON THE AMAZING RACE?

Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd

Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd of Big Brother are officially a couple! The well liked and popular duo of BB11 have been inseparable since the show ended weeks ago. In a new interview with PEOPLE, they confirm their relationship status and discuss life out of the Big Brother house.

“Yes we are!” Jordan Lloyd, 23, tells PEOPLE when asked if she and Jeff, 30, are officially a couple. “We never really talked about it. It just kind of happened.”

“I liked her on the show, that was obvious,” says Jeff, “but after the show ended I liked her even more. I get in trouble when I say that, because Jordan is like, ‘You didn’t like me on the show, and now you like me!?’ but what I mean is that I like her even more now that I see who she is outside of the Big Brother house.”

Jordan has also kept her promise and bought her mom a home with part of her $500,000 earnings from winning the show. “Right after the show,” she says, “I got on the Internet, but I couldn’t find anything, and to make matters worse, my mom was being so picky. But I finally found something, and when my mom looked at it she fell in love with it!”

As for whether or not things have gotten intimate with the couple, or in Jordan’s words, whether or not “booger” is in their immediate future, Jordan says with a laugh, “I think he’s waited long enough.”

This season’s Big Brother was full of lots of drama- just the way we like it! The three contestants left to duke it out for the finale were Jordan Lloyd, Kevin Campbell and Natalie Martinez. Jordan and Kevin faced off in the final head of household competition. Surprisingly, Jordan won the competition and voted Kevin out, leaving her and Natalie as the final two.

The fate of Jordan and Natalie rested with the jury members comprising of Jessie, Lydia, Russell, Jeff, Michelle, Kevin and the viewers. The jury members asked a bunch of question that enabled them to make a decision.

The jury members voted and Jordan received the most votes from the show’s seven-member jury, which included viewer votes as the possibly tie-breaking seventh pick for the first time.

Jordan was served the $500,000 grand prize on “Big Brother 11.” The goofy 22-year-old waitress from Matthews, N.C., defeated Natalie, the conniving 24-year-old recent college graduate from Gilbert, Ariz., by 5 to 2 votes. Jeff Schroeder was chosen as the viewer’s favorite houseguest winning $25,000.

NataLIE has primarily spent the season deceiving other house guest. Her biggest lie was fooling most of the house guests into believing she was an 18-year-old recent high school grad.

The two-hour finale also featured the reunion of the 13-member cast — except for Chima Simone, the 33-year-old freelance journalist who was expelled after tossing a microphone into a whirlpool spa.

Jordan and Jeff were definitely our favorites on this season.

Above is the official Big Brother 11 Cast photo including the final cast member, Jessie Godderz from BB10. The premier of this new season was a big disappointment for me and many others from what I have been reading all week.

Big Brother had a chance to bring back a favorite former houseguest of ours, and for same strange reason, this ended up being Jessie. Not that we hate Jessie, it’s simply that we can easily name 20 former HGs that we would have preferred over Jessie. I know I was really hoping it would have been either Brian or Jessica.

Jessie was a disappointment, plus it seems the other former HGs did not stand a chance. I mean was another clique other than the “Athletes” really suppose to win that very physical competition? Didn’t think so either.

Below are some spoilers of what is to come tomorrow, including the 2 nominees and VETO winner –

Big Brother 11

We have some major Big Brother 11 spoilers for you.  You should stop reading now if you do not want to know any details about what is to come during the premier tomorrow!

First things first, the cliques have been formed.  The rumors are true and this year’s cast has been divided into cliques based on high school stereotypes.  The cliques are below -

The Cliques:

Populars – Braden, Jordan, Laura

Athletes - Russell, Jeff, Natalie

Brains - Ronnie, Chima, Michele

Offbeats - Lydia, Kevin, Casey

Interesting.  Even though we were teased that the “13th houseguest” would be revealed yesterday, CBS did not come through. They have yet to reveal the last/final houseguest but they did release this tidbit of information -

The first HOH will be a former HG. Each clique is assigned one. The HG don’t know who they’re getting. Who are they? One of them had a showmance. Another was almost an All Star.”

What we do know is that it seems all but certain that Brian from BB10 will be one of the former Houseguests returning. Others rumored to be coming back include Eric from BB8, Jessica from BB8, Sheila from BB9, and Jessie from BB10.

A poster from the realitybbq.com forum was able to get a sneak peek at the Houseguests first night in the house.  Below is a summary of what is to come -

“As with every first night of Big Brother it was a love fest.
Ronnie couldn’t hide his excitement.

During the “Getting to know you” in the living room, Laura and
Braden sat in the “you got screwed chairs”.
Casey comes off as another Boogie, fedora and all.

Jeff wore the Chicago city flag on his shirt. He definitely has an accent

Michele downplayed her personal info.

Jordan is the new Jessica and everyone will love her.*

Watch out for Russell. He’s very chill and smart.*

Lydia and Laura were the first to talk game.* It was very brief and they said it’s hard to team up when they don’t know what cliques they’ll be in. Then Jeff and Russell joined them up stairs to play chess.

When Casey was called into the DR the rest of the HG made fun of him a little. Braden rapped as well as a white surfer from the OC can.

BB decided to divided the HG into their cliques after all. They found out when they entered the Back Yard for the HOH Comp

The first comp was endurance.

The Athletes seemed to have the best grip on the game over all. Not just the physical aspect but also the mental. They’re there to play.

At 11:30 the house had an HOH. You first met him in BB10 and he is sure to add a lot of drama to not only the house but to his clique as well.”

Looking forward to the premier tomorrow.  You can see the official cast photos here, and some personal photos of the cast here.
