"The Amazing Race 19" Cast Revealed

CBS has revealed the identities of the eleven teams competing on "The Amazing Race 19". As I reported back in June, dating couple and "Survivor" winners Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca are one of the eleven teams. The other ten teams are brand new pairs who range in age from 19 to 63. The nineteenth season covers 40,000 miles and includes visits to four continents and 20 cities, including first time trips to Indonesia, Malawi, Belgium and Denmark. In addition, there's a new "Hazard" penalty that will "impact one team's future on the Race right from the starting line" as well as the first ever Double Elimination. The new season debuts Sunday September 25th. Here's a look at all eleven teams...
