Cast For Next 'Amazing Race' Revealed! Premiers Sept. 25th




CBS ANNOUNCES THE CAST FOR THE NEW SEASON OF "THE Amazing Race," PREMIERING SUNDAY, SEPT. 25
This Season’s Cast Includes a Pair of Olympians, Former NFL Tight End, the Youngest Person to Ever Sail Around the World Alone and Two Winners of “Survivor

Eleven teams will embark on the adventure of a lifetime on the new season of THE Amazing Race, premiering Sunday, Sept. 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award nominee Phil Keoghan is the host.

This season, the multi-Emmy Award-winning series sends 11 new Teams on a Race around the globe, making first time visits to exotic locations such as Indonesia, Malawi, Belgium and Denmark. Along the way, Teams will travel through four continents and 20 cities and cover nearly 40,000 miles.

Teams will be tested early and often and met with a new penalty called the “Hazard,” which will impact one Team’s future on the Race right from the starting line. The global journey sets off from the foothills of Southern California where the Teams’ problem solving abilities will be put to the test as they search for clues to their first destination, Taipei, Taiwan. Teams fortunate enough to survive the first leg will find themselves amidst an 8th Century Buddhist temple in Indonesia, riding elephants through the rain forests of Thailand, and racing for their lives when they discover they’re facing the series first ever Double Elimination.

This season’s cast includes a pair of Olympic snowboarders, twin Sisters, an ex-NFL tight end, flight attendants, the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone, two winners of SURVIVOR, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, and many more.

This fall marks the 10 year anniversary of THE Amazing Race, which originally premiered on Sept 5, 2001.

THE Amazing Race sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another. At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges — some mental and some physical — and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination. Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.
