A pair of McLovin-loving frat brothers, a former NFL player and his estranged wife (awkward) and a pair of honey-making hippies are among the competitors set for a globetrotting spin around the world on the upcoming 13th season of the Amazing Race.

CBS has announced the 11 two-person teams set to compete on the Emmy-magnet reality show when it kicks off Sept. 28.

Phil Keoghan is again back with the best job in the world, lording over the global go-round as the teams traverse more than 30,000 miles in 23 days, vying for the $1 million prize.

Among the hotspots the teams are set to touch down on: Brazil, Bolivia, Russia, India, a first-ever stop in Cambodia and, for the sake of cultural learnings making benefit the glorious competitors, Kazakhstan.

"We shot most of that episode in that capital," executive producer Bertram van Munster said. "People were a little afraid we were going to pull a Borat on them. I told them we weren't doing Borat, but what happened there is very, very funny."
