‘The Amazing Race 19’: ‘Survivor’s’ Ethan Zohn, Jenna Morasca part of cast

Ethan & Jenna are two contestants.

On Wednesday, we finally know the cast for the upcoming 19th season of “The Amazing Race” set to premiere on Sunday, September 25 — and some of the speculation turned out to be true when it came to one of the most famous teams.

Survivor” winners Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca are indeed going to race around the world in hopes of winning $1 million. This is the second time that a pair of “Survivors” have come on the show (or third, if you consider that Rob and Amber Mariano did it twice), and the third time that we have seen a pair of contestants from a CBS reality show (as Jeff and Jordan from “Big Brother” were also on in early 2010).

Sometimes, seeing these crossover reality stars comes across as desperate once you consider just how many of them want to remain in the spotlight — but Ethan and Jenna feel different thanks to their story. Ethan has underwent a long battle with a rare form of cancer known as Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and could really use the money for both his expenses and to raise money for some of his other causes (including his Grassroots Soccer charity). Meanwhile, Jenna has went from being a perceived “villain” during “Survivor: The Amazon” to being a strong, likable woman who was always at Ethan’s side during his tough times.

As for the rest of the teams, we don’t have the same sort of introduction:

Laurence (40) and Zac (19) Sunderland – A father / son team from Thousand Oaks, California. (Zac is famous for being the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone.)

Amani (36) and Marcus (39) Pollard – A married team from Pine Mountain, Georgia. (Marcus is a former NFL player.)

Andy Finch (30) and Tommy Czeschin (32) – Friends / pro snowboarders from California.

Ernie Halvorsen (29) and Cindy Chang (30) – Engaged couple from Chicago.

Justin (31) and Jennifer (26) Young – Siblings from Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Jeremy Cline (35) and Sandy Draghi (33) – Dating couple from California.

Kaylani Paliotta (33) and Lisa Tilley (32) – Cocktail waitress / former showgirls from Las Vegas

Bill (63) and Cathi (62) Alden – Longtime married couple / grandparents from Albany, Oregon

Ron Zeitz (44) and Bill Smith (49) – Domestic partners from Laguna Niguel, California.

Liz and Marie Canavan (24) – Twins from Deerfield, Illinois
