This year is the 21st season of the popular and adventurous reality show “The Amazing Race,” and things just got a little more interesting and greener since Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge aka “The Fabulous Beekman Boys” have decided to run the Race.

Josh and Brent are well-known in the green community for their show “The Fabulous Beekman Boys,” which follows the two on their goat farm in upstate New York.

“Well, we call ourselves accidental goat farmers, because we were two New York City guys and we had great careers and then in 2008 we bought a farm in upstate New York,” Josh said in the Race’s introduction video. Soon after the launch of their farm website, they inked a reality show deal.

Today, CBS announced the 11 teams who will race around the world in hopes of winning $1 million. This year, one team has the opportunity to win $2 million, but there’s a catch. Whichever team comes in first during the first leg, must come in first on the last leg.

How do you think Josh and Brent will do? We wish them the best of luck! Check out the other teams the duo will be up against in the following video.

“The Amazing Race” premieres on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
