Amazing Race fans got a bit of a Christmas present today and CBS released the 30th season will begin right in the new year, starting January 3rd. Most fans expected the season would start in late February or March alongside Survivor.

But we won’t have to wait an extra two months to see Big Brother 19 fan favourites Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson compete! Want to know how well they do? We’ve got **SPOILERS** on our forum – come check it out!

Cody and Jessica won’t be the only familiar faces you see racing around the world this year, IndyCar racers Conor Daly and Alexander Rossi are also racing to the finish line. We expect the official cast to be released in the upcoming weeks.

Can’t get enough of Amazing Race AND Big Brother? You’re in luck because CBS revealed there will be a TWO HOUR Amazing Race episode after the Big Brother: Celebrity Edition premiere! How awesome will that be!!
