Amazing Race 10’s cast of 12 teams revealed; it’s a diverse, “broad spectrum of people”

CBS has revealed the teams competing in The Amazing Race 10–although not yet on the network’s web site–and for the first time since season four, there will be 12 teams. And those people are quite diverse. Show host Phil Keoghan says,”We’ve never had such a broad spectrum of people.”

Among the teams: a father and his lesbian daughter, Asian men, an Indian-American couple, a gay male couple, two former Miss USA contestants, and “the show’s first-ever Muslim team,” according to Zap2it.com. There are also some white guys and blonde women.

As reader Tyler noticed, IGN has photographs of each of the teams, so we can pre-judge them not on their race, religion, or sexual orientation, but on things that matter, like their looks.
