The Amazing Race Season 20 Preview: Contestants Include Big Brother's Brendon And Rachel image
CBS has revealed the teams for the next new season of The Amazing Race, as well as information on some of the places they contestants are set to visit as the series gets going on its twentieth season. Fans of Big Brother are likely to recognize two of the contestants set to compete this season.

If past seasons of Big Brother are any indication, we should probably be prepared for pouting, bickering, drama and some serious competitive spirit from at least one couple set to compete in Season 20 of The Amazing Race. Brendon and Rachel were featured in not one but two seasons of CBS‘ reality competition series. They’re still engaged and likely still just as determined to win as they were in Seasons 12 and 13 of BB. Rachel went on to win the grand prize of $500k in Big Brother. Will she and Brendon be able to best the other teams set to compete in Season 20 of The Amazing Race? My guess is that they'll at least make it further than Jeff and Jordan did in Season 16. Take a look at the video and list below and get started speculating!
