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

Well...I didn't want the winners to win
29 December 2002 | by 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')
