Playing in the NFL is one thing, but competing on The Amazing Race is a whole different beast.
"This might be the most unpredictable season yet," Phil Keoghan, host of the hit CBS reality competition, tells PEOPLE.
"[Teams of] pro athletes, feisty fit couples, people with practical hard-working skills, book smarts and strong friendships make it almost impossible to predict who will have an advantage," he says.
Eleven teams will embark on a race around the world for the 23rd installment of show, which premieres Sept. 29 (8 p.m. ET). Two of them are former NFL teammates.

Jaymes Vaughan wanted to win The Amazing Race to raise funds for his father, who has been battling a rare form of cancer.
The fan favorite, a Chippendales dancer in Las Vegas, came up just short by finishing second, but he hasn't stopped trying to help his dad, Ed Vaughan.
His latest effort: moving up the release date of his new single, "Tonight," when his father's health took a turn for the worse. Proceeds from the song will go toward Ed's care and Jaymes says he was determined to release it while his father is here to see it.

Everyone knows the Amazing Race has an amazing prize for the pair who makes it around the globe – a cool $1 million.
But viewers may not know what fan favorite Jaymes Vaughan (who partnered with his best friend and fellow Chippendales dancer James Davis on the show) plans to do with the money if he wins.
Shortly before his Amazing Race adventure began, "I found out my father was diagnosed with one of the rarest cancers that there is," Vaughan, 31, tells PEOPLE. "At this point it's an incurable cancer, and we're trying to do everything we can to help him turn it into a curable cancer."

Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas spent two summers living with strangers on Big Brother and traveled around the world on The Amazing Race, but now they have taken their boldest trip ever – down the wedding aisle.
The reality stars married Saturday atop the AT&T Center in downtown Los Angeles, where the redheaded bride arrived via helicopter.
"She wanted to arrive like a big celebrity," celebrity wedding planner – and host of WE tv's My Fair Wedding – David Tutera tells PEOPLE. "The guests will watch her arrive on live camera before she walks down the aisle, which to me is one of the most over the top processionals ever."
