Amazing Race 9 teams announced

The 11 couples who will race around the world (we hope) on The Amazing Race 9 have been announced.

There are four sets of friends, three dating couples, two married couples, and two couples comprised of family members. They include “bohemian best buds”, sisters who’ve lived apart for 20 years, “cocky, very competitive” friends, two “beauties”, and an “opinionated and stubborn” couple.

The show debuts Feb. 28.
