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

In season 10, a Fast Forward was offered in conjunction with the Intersection in Leg 8. Mary reported in a post-race interview on "The Finish Line" that a team could use a Fast Forward for a second time (in this case with a team that had not used a Fast Forward earlier in the race). In previous seasons, teams were allowed to use only one Fast Forward during the entire race. This would come into effect a season later in "All-Stars" when Danny & Oswald completed two Fast Forwards.

Goofs

In the final episode, when seats become available for the flight to Denver, a computer screen is shown with passengers "Patrick/Donald" and "Irwin/Allison" in seats 28C & 28D. Donny & Allison were the 2nd team eliminated. Possibly stock footage of a computer screen for privacy protection of real passengers. Possibly dummy bookings to ensure a close race finish. See more »

Quotes

Host: [starting a Race in the first episode of each season] The world is waiting for you. Good luck... travel safe... go!

Just an amazing show
30 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Last December, Survivor South Pacific ended and I had to find something to watch while the 3 months passed until Survivor came back. So I decided to try out this show, Amazing Race. I was hooked after 1 episode and watched an entire season in 1 night. By the end of the 3 months I had watched all 19 seasons of the show. It became my new obsession. Easily the best show on TV, even the duller seasons such as 4, 8, or 13 are still awesome and entertaining. I know this show is definitely not for everyone, you need to like reality shows to enjoy this (obviously), but if you are a fan of survivor, big brother, or even fear factor, I would definitely suggest giving this amazing show a chance.
