CBS's The Amazing Race just announced the cast of its 28th season, and they've all got something in common: an unusually high number of social media followers. The 22-person cast will feature YouTube celebs like Tyler Oakley and Ashley Jenkins, Vine stars like Zach King, and Instagram icons like Jessica Versteeg.

Staying true to the social media theme, host Phil Koeghan will stream live video on his Facebook page when the show airs. The Amazing Race first premiered in 2001, and this new internet-born cast could be an attempt to attract younger audiences who missed the first few years of Amazing Race fanaticism. The new season will premiere on November 15th at 10:30PM ET.
