"Our fans are pretty good. They don't give away too much. Sometimes people love dropping spoilers, but our fans are good. They tend to do it in such a way that doesn't ruin it for fans who don't want to know."--Phil Keoghan

They are definitely posting the actual blind daters in individual videos, the pre-existing relationship teams as team videos....

....but we should be able to match up the blind daters pretty quickly, now.

Just watched Phil's video which IDs all 11 teams, including the pairings for the blind dating teams. And both Bert and Elise make appearances in the "meet the cast" video with Phil, and that is definitely a first ever!

Here's the press release announcing the cast (as posted at thefutoncritic.com):

[01/20/15 - 09:01 AM]
CBS Announces the Cast of the Next Edition of "The Amazing Race"
This season will feature 11 new teams of all dating duos with a twist: six who are preexisting couples, and five duos who will meet for the very first time at the starting line when they are set up on the most extreme blind date ever.
[via press release from CBS]

CBS ANNOUNCES THE CAST OF THE NEXT EDITION OF "THE AMAZING RACE"

For the First Time Ever, the 10-Time Emmy Award-Winning Series to Feature All Dating Duos - Existing Couples and Singles Set Up On "Blind Dates"

Racers Include New Kids on the Block Member Jonathan Knight and Olympic Medalists Aly Dudek and Steven Langton

New "Date Night" Reward Is Introduced

"The Amazing Race" Kicks Off with a Special 90-Minute Premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 9:30 PM, Following the Season Premiere of "Survivor"

The Race Travels to Its Regular Time Period on Friday, Feb. 27 at 8:00 PM

CBS announced today the 11 teams racing around the globe for the opportunity to win the $1 million dollar prize, on a special season of THE AMAZING RACE. This season will feature 11 new teams of all dating duos with a twist: six who are preexisting couples, and five duos who will meet for the very first time at the starting line when they are set up on the most extreme blind date ever. THE AMAZING RACE rounds out a night of reality television when it premieres with a 90-minute episode on Wednesday, Feb. 25 (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT), following the premiere of SURVIVOR (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The Race moves to its regular time period on Friday, Feb. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan) is the host.

"Usually we have people who know each other really well. In this particular case, we have five blind dates and six regular dates," said Bertram van Munster, Co-Creator and Executive Producer of THE AMAZING RACE. "Going on a blind date to a restaurant is one thing, but going on a blind date around the world is like rolling the dice in a big way,"

The preexisting dating teams traveling around the world include New Kids on the Block member Jonathan Knight and his partner Harley Rodriguez, and Olympic medalists Aly Dudek and Steven Langton. Dudek won bronze at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics in short track speed skating and Langton won two bronze medals at the 2014 Sochi Olympics in bobsledding. Those being set up on the blind dates of a lifetime include a Navy physician and a registered nurse and two lawyers.

The couple's relationships will be tested right from the starting line as they navigate a muddy obstacle course before jetting off to Tokyo, Japan. The course will continue through Bangkok, Namibia, Monaco, and more, spanning five continents, eight countries and more than 35,000 miles.

The dating teams will also have an opportunity throughout the race to win the all-new "Date Night" reward. This allows one lucky couple to enjoy a one-on-one romantic activity, such as a steamy evening at a hot springs resort in Nagano, Japan, or star-gazing at the Bavarian Public Observatory in Munich, Germany.

THE AMAZING RACE, 10-time Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series, sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. At every destination, each team competes in a series of challenges - some mental and some physical - and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination. Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning at least $1 million.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

A quick note: The press release actually lists each pair of "blind daters" in order, so I've added a separator in the quoted press release (___) to make off each pair.
