The Amazing Race

The Amazing Race



The Amazing Race is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10, 11, or 12 teams of 2 or 4 people against each other in a race around the world for approximately 40 days. In a leg, they go to destinations where they will complete a roadblock, a task where 1 person completes (Season 1-7) or 2 people (Season 8), a detour, where you have to decide between two tasks that are usually opposite of each other , and a miscellaneous task. After they complete all these tasks, they will be directed to go to a Pit stop where they will have a 24 hour rest period where they will be able to eat, drink, sleep, and mingle with other teams. The last team to check into the Pit Stop usually is eliminated, but sometimes there is a non-elimination leg in which no one is eliminated. After all teams are eliminated except for 3, these three race to the finish line where the winning team wins 1 million dollars.

The Amazing Race 24 will be an All-Star Edition and will debut in February 2014. Fan Favorites will compete selected from prior contestants from Season 1 through Season 23. (Source: CBS)

Recaps
25x2: When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go recap: Leg #2 began tonight from Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, United States Virgin Islands and the team that came in 1st place were Surfers Adam Dirks and his girlfriend Bethany Hamilton. For winning this 2nd leg of the race they won “A trip for 2 to Sweden”. The last team to arrive tonight was the team of Dennis Hour and his girlfriend Isabelle Du and became the 2nd team to be eliminated this season. This leg ended in London, England in the United Kingdom... read more.

25x1: Go Big or Go Home recap: The 11 teams involved in this 25th Season of the Amazing Race that will compete against each other in hopes of winning the $1,000,000 prize are introduced and the race officially begins from the starting line at Times Square, New York City, New York, United States. The teams completed this Leg at the finish line for the 1st Leg in Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, United States Virgin Islands. The team that came in 1st place on this leg was the married Dentists Jim & Misti Ramon from Summerville, South Carolina. For winning this leg of the race the couple won a brand new item never seen in a previous race called “The SAVE Card”. It is a prize that can prevent elimination on any leg of their choice and must be used before the end of the ninth leg of the race. The last team to arrive on tonight’s episode was Miami Realtors and sisters Lisa & Michelle Thomson and became the first team eliminated this year... read more.

17x12: Hi. I'm Sorry. I'm in a Race recap: After a lengthy recap of the season, we learn that the last city will be LA California. The teams start within minutes of each-other and all see each-other at the airport. Brooke & Claire are wearing their leopard print hot pants (LOL). The doctors remark that they really just want to beat Thomas as he's the last man standing. All three teams are on the same flight to LA... read more.

13x6: Please Hold While I Singe My Skull recap: Teams traveled to the congested streets of Delhi, India where separated couple Ken & Tina instantly had troubles with a lost taxi driver. Although they battled back to pass fumbling frat boys Andrew & Dan, another lost taxi again foiled the separated couple who came in last place. They survived to race another day when Phil announced to the relieved couple that this was a non-elimination leg.

13x5: Do It Like a Madman recap: Departing the Pit Stop in first place at 6:03am, separated couple Ken & Tina opened their clue instructing them to fly over 5,600 miles to the city of Siem Reap, Cambodia and make their way to a roadside gas pumping station... read more.
