CLAY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WVLT) -- A Kentucky duo will race around the world again in hopes of winning a million dollar prize, again!

The all-star edition of "The Amazing Race" will feature former contestants, including best friends 47-year-old Mark Jackson and 43-year-old William "Bopper" Minton of Clay County.

The unemployed pair came in fifth place during season 20 of the reality show. Minton says the biggest mistake was not taking the time to read the clue correctly.

'Amazing Race: All Stars' premieres Sunday, February 23 at 8 PM on WVLT.
