CBS declined to confirm bystander photos that seemed to show Lloyd and Schroeder and other teams beginning the race at Los Angeles International Airport, stating only that it would not be announcing the cast "for a while."
The Amazing Race's sixteenth-season episodes will serve as the lead in for Undercover Boss -- a new reality series that will follow corporate executives working in disguise at low-level jobs in their own company to find out what their employees really think of them.
Undercover Boss -- which CBS began developing in February and is based on a U.K. reality series of the same name -- will premiere on Sunday, February 7 following the network's coverage of Super Bowl XLIV. It will then move to its regular Sundays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot beginning February 14.
In addition to The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss, CBS announced that Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains -- the twentieth season of the long-running reality series -- will premiere with a two-hour episode on Thursday, February 11 at 8PM ET/PT.
CBS will also air Surviving Survivor, a one-hour special featuring castaway updates and some of the show's most memorable moments over the last 10 years, on Thursday, February 4 at 8PM ET/PT.
