CBS announced the cast of The Amazing Race 22 this morning, and there were no surprises.

As usual, Internet gossips identified each of Season 22's Amazing Racers long before CBS's official announcement. When groups of people are parading through various international airports with camera crews in tow, it's hard to keep a low profile.

Phil Keoghan describes this as "the most diverse cast ever." In fact, he says, this group includes people who are "tall, short, black white, republican, democrat" as well as people who are "fit" and those with "bum knees" and "beer bellies." Phil has an interesting definition of "diverse."

The new season begins Sunday, February 17th on CBS. Check back with TVdale for more information and updates on The Amazing Race.
