Season Summary: CBS announced today the 11 teams that will embark on a sprint around the globe for $1 million dollars on the new season of THE AMAZING RACE, premiering Sunday, Feb. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award nominee Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan) is the host.

THE AMAZING RACE has won the Emmy Award for “Outstanding Reality-Competition Program” nine times in the past 10 years.

This season, which marks the 22nd race around the world for the series, will introduce a new twist to the game in which the first Team to check in at the first pit stop will earn two “Express Passes” – one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another Team by the end of the fourth leg of the Race.

Teams will travel more than 30,000 miles, over five continents and through nine countries as they skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland.

This season’s diverse cast includes twin brothers who are both OB/GYNs, father/son cancer survivors, Southern firefighters, roller derby moms and female country singers.

    the Hanoi show was totally a slap in the face to all of us that were involved in the war. After all these years we continue to be bashed over this war. I for one will never watch the show again. Disgraceful.

    I do not know the reason to use a B-52 crash site, nor the reason to use a communist party propoganda song in this past weeks show, however I do believe it was very bad directing, editing, and disrepectful to a legion of Vietnam War veterans and their families.
    You used the term memorial, whose? Was it a memorial to all service members regardless of which side they fought on? Was it purely about the citizens who lost their lives in the war? Or was it just a propoganda memorial?
    I strongly believe an honest explanation is in order or an honest apology. This episode has definitely tranished the Amazing Race’s image.

    I’m a Viet Nam Vet that is disgusted with the Hanoi adventure. I wish that 1 of the contestants had served and what there response would have been to the B52 site. Funny no mention of the crew names their families, children, mothers and fathers . CBS sucks and should be renamed the Communist News Service.

  • sorry to here this will be the last season of amazing race if you don’t give a big donation to the vietnam vets and make a BIG APOLOGY, BY NEXT EPISODE. or I and thousands of others will never watch again or buy ANY product advertised on your show.

    I’m writing on behalf of my husband, who is a Vietnam Veteran. According to my husband, he supports your show being taped in Vietnam.

    I cannot believe Amazing Race sent the contestants the wreck of an American B52 where American soldiers died. It is a disgrace.
