About The Amazing Race (TV Show)

The Amazing Race is an American reality game show in which typically eleven teams of two race around the world. The race is split into roughly twelve legs interspersed with physical and mental challenges, and require teams to deduce clues, navigate themselves in foreign areas, interact with locals, and vie for airplane, boat, taxi, and other public transportation options on a limited budget provided by the show. Teams are progressively eliminated at the end of each leg; the first of the last three remaining teams to cross the final leg's finish line win one million dollars (US). As the original version of the Amazing Race franchise, the CBS program has been running since 2001 and has been renewed for its twenty-first season, which premiered on September 30, 2012. Numerous international versions have been developed following the same core structure, while the U.S. version is also broadcast to several other markets.
