Meet the teams on new season of ‘Amazing Race’

LOS ANGELES — One team will have a leg up on the competition in the upcoming season of “The Amazing Race.”

Two of the Harlem Globetrotters are among the 12 teams starring in the 15th edition of the CBS reality show, which premieres Sept. 27. Nathaniel “The Big Easy” Lofton, 28, from New Orleans, and Herbert “Flight Time” Lang, 32, from Brinkley, Ark., believe their experience will help them dominate this season’s course, which spans eight countries in 21 days.

Among the teams who are romantically linked: a feisty engaged couple from Boston; grade-school sweethearts from San Diego; a dating couple from San Francisco who met online; married yoga instructors from Encino, Calif.; dating aspiring country singers; and a former Miss America and her husband.

“They are now suddenly putting their relationship under a microscope,” said host Phil Keoghan.

“I personally wouldn’t want to do that, but teams do, and audiences love to watch it, and there are a number of teams on this season that are coming to the race to test their relationship, and it sounds like some of them might get quite testy in the process.”

For the first time, one team will be booted at the start of the trek, and racers will have to tackle the Switchback, a new twist that sends teams back to one of the series’ most challenging “roadblocks.”
