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

Goofs

Flipped Shot: When Chip and Kim deliver the chairs in Mto Wa Mbu in the episode "Are You Sure This Is Safe?" there's a child wearing a Pokemon shirt which is shown as a mirrored image. This is done on a lot on reality shows where licensed clothing is visible in order to get around licensing issues. Also, it's easier to flip the image than to blur it out. See more »

DVD for amazing race is awesome
13 February 2005 | by (duckburg) – See all my reviews

This show just rocks it walloped SURVIVOR and that American IDOL show in the emmys for BEST REALITY SHOW...there has never been a more deserving winner....The Amazing Race is a Reality show with 11 teams of 2 racing around the world for a cash prize of $1,000,000. The teams compete in different segments traveling all over the world. They must perform tasks usually reserved for the indigenous people...all plane fare is paid for but the contestants must fend for themselves with a small amount of cash they are given...In most episodes the last team to arrive at the pit stop is eliminated. but they've added a twist on later season...the last team sometimes gets another chance but must do so with all cash stripped from them... I was able to get the missing episodes from ebay and now with TIVO I'l hopefully never miss it again...I have great show summaries on all seasons of the show..its really interesting to see how the show has evolved over the years...the different flags from the early years and especially the way the teams treat one another...its gotten much more ruthless over the seasons...I also have info on submitting applications.to the show..still hoping to make the final cut myself...contact me with any needs concerning the show...my IMDb user name is uncascrog..thanks
