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

Fans, critics, and racers were lukewarm over the format changes implemented in Family edition of The Amazing Race. The main issues were the lack of international travel and watered down challenges tailored to families. The expanded cast also made it more difficult to develop individual story lines. Entertainment Weekly commented that "Half the fun of The Amazing Race has always been watching the inter and intra-couple bickering that goes with being chronologically late and lost in a foreign land. Seeing parents yell at their children in exotic New Jersey? Not so fun". USA Today shared similar opinions, adding that "the idea of being trapped in the back seat for a forced cross-country family drive comes closer to a nightmare relived than a dream come true." Racers were also disappointed that they did not have a chance to travel to more exotic locations; in one episode Marion Paolo commented "Why are we going to Phoenix, Arizona for? I want to go to New Zealand!", a statement that also summed up the general opinion of the season. In hindsight, the production team has admitted that the concept of a Family Edition "looked good on paper" but failed in execution, since child racers limited foreign travel for that season. Creators Bert Van Munster and Jonathan Littman doubt that the family format will be revived in the future. See more »

Well...I didn't want the winners to win
29 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A+

Starring: Eleven Groups of two people

Eleven groups of two people related somehow travel thousands and thousands of miles, beating all the other teams to get a million dollar prize.

I love this show. It has something that makes you get hooked on the show. What I liked was how when you think that someone is in the lead and then the behind person comes right up and gets past them.

Of anyone I wanted to win, it would've been Derek & Drew or Ken & Girard. Don't get me wrong, I liked Zach, but I couldn't stand Flo. She's always either yelling or screaming at Zach. Out of the top 3 teams, I would've wanted Ken & Girard to win. Still good show.

Rank: Tied for 1st in Reality shows (with other 'Races')
