"[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.
