Storyline

The best of the reality series crop is back, with 12 teams of 2 players each racing around the world, trying not to be eliminated at a series of checkpoints in which the last team to arrive is booted from the show. CBS chooses teams with relationships containing at least some tension, especially when the situation involves intense pressure. This season includes such duos as two circus clowns, a gay married couple, a father and son, a recently engaged couple, married couples, and best friends. Written by T.J. Magwire

Trivia

Eric (Season 9) canceled taxi reservations for Ray/Yolanda and BJ/Tyler early in Leg 9 but the team received no penalty. Joseph was standing with Jeremy as Eric called to cancel and said "That'll give us a good head start," leading some viewers to speculate that he was involved. Eric & Jeremy later stated that they almost were given a penalty for the incident, but since everyone got a taxi anyway and Eric & Jeremy got on a taxi last, it was not assessed. See more »

'The BEST season of The Amazing Race'
14 January 2005 | by (Auckland, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

'The Amazing Race 5' is the BEST of all six complete seasons to date. If you've never seen the show, I recommend this season over all others. Why? Season 5 had a combination of interesting and amiable teams as well as original locations, only 2 of which had already been visited in previous seasons. The 'Bowling Moms', Linda and Karen, added a lot of fun to the show - they were almost always lively and seeing them go so far on the race (to 4th place) was a highlight. Although I liked Colin and Christie, seeing Chip and Kim win was great - it was unexpected - and this is what added to this season's success. What I particularly liked about the locations visited was that producers for the most part avoided Europe (save for Russia, which was interesting) and visited other places, more interesting places, like South America and the Middle East. I'm just hoping that CBS releases the seasons on DVD - if they do, choose this one! 5 Star Entertainment - so much more refreshing than Seasons 6 and 7.
