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
17x12: Hi. I'm Sorry. I'm in a Race - Leg 12 - Incheon, South Korea → Los Angeles, California, USA (Winning team announced) 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.

13x4: I Wonder If They Like Blondes in New Zealand? recap: During the rest period at the Pit Stop, divorcees Kelly & Christy confronted siblings Nick & Starr about their urging of Aja & Ty to U-turn them in the last leg. Starr's attempts at mending the situation failed completely as Christy said, "If you want to play the game like that, we are not going to be nice to you, so don't try to fix it." She later added, "You don't even know what you just opened."

13x3: Did You Push My Sports Bra Off the Ledge? recap: The razor sharp Mark & Bill made a careless and critical mistake early that cost them dearly on the mat when a time penalty pushed the devastated comic book geeks out of the race. Meanwhile, a rivalry heated up between Nick & Starr and Kelly & Christy and showed no signs of stopping... read more.
