Meet Your 'Amazing Race 12' Cast

Lesbians, Goths and Aspiring Actors? Oh, My!

The usual assortment of friends, estranged and devoted relatives and one unlikely Goth couple lead the 11 teams announced for the new season of "The Amazing Race 12." The 12th installment of the franchise that has scored the past five reality competition Emmys will premiere on CBS on Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. ET.

CBS has had to go into accelerated promotion mode on "The Amazing Race," which was only added to the network's line-up on Monday, October 22, following the ultra-swift cancellation of "Viva Laughlin," starring Hugh Jackman after airing only two episodes.

As always, the 'Amazing Race' teams represent a fair amount of ethnic diversity and at least three contestants in their 50s and 60s are thrown into the mix with the usual assortment of waitresses, students and aspiring actors.

This may, however, be the show's least geographically diverse season ever, with 8 of 11 teams hailing from the Los Angeles area. You also have lesbian Episcopal ministers (Kate and Pat) and dating Goths from Kentucky (Kynt and Vyxsin).
