CBS announced the 12 teams competing in the 15th season of the 'The Amazing Race,' which premieres Sun., Sept. 27, 8PM ET.

This 'Race' will be the fastest yet, spanning eight countries over 21 days -- though one team won't even make it past the starting line, thanks to a surprise elimination. And this crop of racers will face the "Switchback," which sends them to the site of one of the series' most infamous Roadblocks.
