The Amazing Race Returns Tonight
Viewer favorite The Amazing Race returns to CBS at 9pm tonight. Host Phil Keoghan acknowledges that the show made a mistake last season by changing the format to a family edition. The show will return to its globe-trotting roots tonight, a move sure to make viewers happy.
Tonight, the reality adventure series returns with its original international format in which teams of two travel to exotic locations in a race around the world for a $1-million US prize.
This time around they will span five continents and stop in places such as the Middle East, Moscow and Sicily. “The reaction we got from the family version…people clearly made a statement they wanted that international element of the show—they missed it,” says Keoghan.
This season, the 11 teams, which include a Pizza Hut manager, a science teacher, a dentist, a valet and a retired physician, race across 97,000 kilometres in just 29 days.
That is the longest distance travelled in the shortest amount of time throughout the show’s eight-cycle history, says Keoghan.
