Series cast summary:
 Himself - Host (317 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

Did You Know?


When Phil introduced the final Roadblock in Season 9, he was standing between the flags of Canada and Antigua and Barbuda when he was speaking. Canada and Antigua and Barbuda (particularly Antigua) were two countries in which Phil spent a portion of his life. In a second scene of Phil at the Roadblock, he was standing in front of the New Zealand flag, an obvious homage to his native country. See more »

If you want a *real* reality show, The Amazing Race is IT!
10 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

You can skip all the other dopey reality shows that have come along recently, The Amazing Race has GOT to be right up there with the orginal.. Survivor! This show offers adventure (which is the name of the game) fun, excitement and entertainment!

If CBS will give this show some time, it will build a large audience, I'm sure. Watching teams compete at various feats, trials, and tasks is entertainment in itself, add the addition of watching as these teams travel the world jockeying for 1st place is pure enjoyment!!

I think Jerry (Bruckheimer) has a winning combination here!
