LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cord and Jet McCoy are saddling up for another season of “The Amazing Race.”

The bull-riding brothers are among the 11 veteran teams competing on the 18th edition of CBS’ around-the-world competition (premiering Feb. 20 at 8 p.m. EST), the network announced Wednesday. Other returning duos include goth dating couple Kynt Cothron and Vyxsin Fiala and Harlem Globetrotters teammates Nathaniel “Big Easy” Lofton and Herbert “Flight Time” Lang.

“We’re not intimidated by anyone,” Jet McCoy said before setting off in November. “That’s the thing about this race, even in the season that we were on, we sized up the competition, but it wasn’t the same people that were in the finals or that went out first. When it comes to this race, even though we’ve seen people on previous seasons, it’s too hard to tell.”

The McCoy brothers from Tupelo, Okla., came in second place on the 16th season show, narrowly losing to Daniel and Jordan Pious after the distinctly different siblings skipped the McCoys in line at an airport and slipped to the front of the plane. Cord warned that he isn’t going to let other teams sneak by him on the “Unfinished Business” edition.

Other racers are sisters Kisha and Jen Hoffman, former cheerleaders Jaime Edmondson and Cara Rosenthal, engaged couple Amanda Blackledge and Kris Klicka, friends Justin Kanew and Zev Glassenberg, mother-and-son Margie and Luke Adams, father-and-son Mel and Mike White, and fathers-and-daughters Gary and Mallory Erwin and Ron and Christina Hsu.

    Jet and Cord should get another chance – they played it fair in the bike run and went back to the begining while the rest were told the answer and did not return to the begining of the bike run.

    **** Rules should be changed on The Amazing Race. No answer should be given out to another racing couple! *****

    Each and every couple should be able to get to the pit stop on their own accord!

    I believe a 4 hour penalty should be handed out to the couple giving out an answer to someone else!
