Series cast summary:
 Himself - Host (309 episodes, 2001-2015)


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

The Aiello Family (Season 8) was the only family in which none of the team members shared a blood relation. See more »


When the teams are travelling from Argentina to Mozambique in the fourth episode of the All-Stars series, Phil Keoghan's voice-over states that there are no international flights out of Ushuaia Airport. However, at what the on-screen caption claims is Ushuaia Airport, a Qantas plane is clearly visible. Qantas is Australia's main international airline and would not be present at a solely domestic airport in Argentina (Qantas do, however, fly to Buenos Aires, so the scene was presumably filmed at Buenos Aires' international airport).

It's still one of the best shows on TV.
26 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

'The Amazing Race' is without a doubt the best reality show on television right now. It's way better than 'Survivor', which seems to get all of the attention every year leaving 'Race' in dire need of viewers.

The first season was great, the second was the best, and the third was also fantastic. You won't hear any complaints out of me. The activities and tasks were just as interesting, if not more. Each episode was fast-paced, as it is designed to be.

I wasn't too crazy about the teams, but I was cheering for one or two by the near end of the series.

'The Amazing Race 3' was just as good as the others. I still love it; it's one of my favorites. I sure hope that it comes back for at least one more season. Any more than that would be even better.

So, Phil was looking his best, I'm sorry that Derek and Drew didn't win, but I am glad that Zach won even if it was with Flo. Great editing and snappy music helped this show roll right along.

More people need to watch this show. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!
