The New Kids on the Block member and his boyfriend, Harley Rodriguez, have been revealed as one of 11 couples competing on the next season of the CBS reality competition. Knight, 46, and his personal trainer boyfriend, 41, have more than six years’ experience traveling together as a couple, which they can draw on as they race around the world, but not all of the competitors will have that same advantage. For the first time in the show’s 13 years on the air, five of the teams will be comprised of strangers who have been paired together by the show for the ultimate blind date. Check out the promo below for a look at the new season, which premieres Feb. 25 at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
