Witnesses spotted Lloyd, Big Brother'seleventh-season winner, and Schroeder, her fellow houseguest who won the vote as America's Favorite Player, at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday with numerous other teams.
One witness -- who posted under the Twitter username "Danielle Varey" -- posted photos of Lloyd and Schroeder to her Twitter account after she saw the couple while she was waiting to her flight from Los Angeles to Denver.
"So many people that I don't even know commenting pic of J&J. They were filming new season of Amazing Race. Saw 2 other teams also," she posted Saturday afternoon.
"Their flight is in route right now. Jeff said he wasn't allowed to give details just said 'we are in a race.'"
While Varey added she was "not 100% sure where they flew to," she added "the gate they went and sat down next to said Chicago/Boston" and "being in LA I assume it's the beginning if the race."
Another witness at the airport -- who posted under the Twitter username "shloky" -- said he was "in the security line at LAX with the entire cast from the new Amazing Race."
"I can say that Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd are definitely doing the show," he wrote. "One team is now using my computer to plan out travel in Chile... they're headed to Chile. both santiago and wolf castle. theres a bus involved."

In addition to Lloyd and Schroeder, shloky described the physical characteristics of several other sixteenth-season participants -- including "big guys, one with a man fu beard," "a tall guy with a short blonde," "a grandma with a 20 something brunette," "older white male and his wife," and "two cowboys."
CBS declined to comment on the sightings when contacted by Entertainment Weekly, only stating it would not be announcing The Amazing Race's sixteenth-season cast "for a while."
"I don't think me and Jordan would be opposed to that but no offers yet," Schroeder told EW in a late-October interview.
The former Big Brother houseguests aren't the only CBS reality stars who have resurfaced on The Amazing Race.
Former Big Brother fourth-season houseguest Allison Irwin competed on The Amazing Race's Summer 2004 fifth season with her boyfriend Donny Patrick, while Survivor: All-Stars couple Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich competed on The Amazing Race's Spring 2005 seventh season and its Spring 2007 eleventh-season, which was also an All-Stars installment.
