A new crew of 11 teams embark on a 30,000 mile trek around the world for a shot to win $1 million dollars in the 22nd edition of
“The Amazing Race.”
A pair of Roller Derby Moms, country singers, firefighters, twin OB/GYNs and professional hockey players are among the teams who sprint across five continents and nine countries, undergoing daring feats and deeds testing agility, strength and courage.
Among the “The Amazing Race” destinations and tasks during the season: a first time stop to French Polynesia where teams skydived
10,000 feet above the island of Bora Bora; an obstacle-type race in New Zealand, known locally as the “Shemozzle Race,” where
contestants are faced with gathering molasses, feathers and dirty water while holding eggs - and with dogs; hunting scorpions with
Bushmen in Botswana; and climbing the north face of Switzerland’s 13,000 foot Eiger.
As an added element, this season also introduced a new twist to the game: the first team to check in at the first pit stop earns 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.
