Amazing Race 18 castFor the 18th season of 'The Amazing Race,' producers have invited 11 teams from past seasons to seek redemption and have another shot at the $1 million in 'Amazing Race: Unfinished Business.'

"Usually, you don't have to go back into the drawer because there are so many brilliant people out there who are so good," said Bertram van Munster, the show's executive producer, tells TV Squad. "In this particular case, I think it has great value."

'Amazing Race: Unfinished Business,' which premieres Sun., Feb. 20 at 10PM ET, was also be the first edition to be shot in HD.

Should they fall short again, 11 teams shouldn't count on a third chance to win a million dollars, however. Ultimately, van Munster says, "I am the kind of guy who likes to do fresh casting. Then, people can pick their favorites. That's what reality should be all about."

I'm rooting for the Cowboys, Kisha & Jen, or the Globetrotters. I also did not like Margie and Luke. We'll see what happens this time.

Of the teams I recognize, I like a lot of them. Jet and Cord, the Globetrotters, Gary and Mallory and Mel and Mike. I grew to dislike Margie and most particularly Luke. Just because a person is deaf doesn't make him a nice guy.
