The Amazing Race 18

Eleven former teams who fell short of winning $1 million during their inaugural races around the world return for another adventure and a second chance in The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business aka All-star season!

The 18th season of the show will feature some familiar faces and fan favorites from previous seasons including the cowboys, goths, Harlem Globetrotters and more.

These contestants will travel 40,000 miles through five continents and 23 cities. Teams will begin their journey around the globe from the second-windiest place on the planet, and travel to such picturesque locations as Sydney, Australia, where they find themselves swimming with sharks; Liechtenstein, where they must measure the length of the entire country while riding a motorized bicycle; and Tokyo, Japan, where they must endure the freezing waters from Mount Fuji as part of a spiritual ritual.

The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business premieres Sunday Feb. 20 at 8/7c on CBS.
