After the public start of The Amazing Race this morning, CBS announced the 11 teams that are currently racing around the world. If you’d like Amazing Race 27 spoilers as the teams travel, follow the sleuths at Reality Fan Forum.

The show seems to have abandoned the blind date twist from last season (for now), as all these teams have pre-existing relationships.

Here are the teams:

  • Ernest Phillips and Jin Lao, brothers from Boston
  • Denise Williams and James Earl Corley, mother and son from Prattville, Ala.
  • Cindy and Rick Chac, newlyweds from San Diego, Calif.
  • Alex Manard and Adam Dingeman, cousins from Chicago and Des Moines, Iowa, respectively
  • Justin Scheman and Diana Bishop, engaged couple from Philadelphia
  • Jazmine Lewis and Danielle Littleton, athletes from Los Angeles
  • Tanner Kloven and Josh Ahern, best friends from Dallas
  • Kelly Berning and Shevonne Sullivan, TMZ editor and post production supervisor, respectively, from Los Angeles
  • Kelsey Gerckens and Joey Buttitta, dating news anchors from Santa Barbara, Calif.
  • Logan Fazio and Chris Gordon, dating paparazzi from Miami Beach, Fla.
  • Tiffany Chantell Torres and Krista DeBono, friends from Hoboken, N.J., and Staten Island, N.Y., respectively
