Storyline

Twelve teams of two people line up at the start on the Los Angeles River, but in a surprise twist, the team that fails to complete the first task is eliminated without leaving the country. The eleven remaining teams travel to Tokyo, Japan, where one person from each team becomes a Japanese game show contestant at the Road Block, then to Cái Bè, Vietnam, where they have to face mud, sweat and tears as they take part in a local farmer's festival. Written by Allister Coots

Trivia

When Eric and Lisa Paskel competed on TAR15, they became the 1st team ever to be eliminated at the starting line (on a task involving Japanese license plates) and they then elected to skip the standard sequester mini-vacation that teams who've been knocked out generally do. For that reason, they were not one of the teams gathered at the final Pit Stop when the top 3 teams arrived. See more »

Did you notice the farmer with the mud that gave them their clue?
27 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Hey, during the 2 hour pilot, did anyone notice that the farmer who give them their clue at the mud pit, didn't look Vietnamese at all? He totally looked Caucasian. It made me want to look online and see if he had an American soldier father in the 60s? Did anyone else notice?

I'm also surprised to see Amazing Race on right now. There are too many pilots on right now to fully enjoy this. I like it better in the summer when there is nothing else on all week long and this is the highlight of the week. And Survivor is on too? My husband loves all reality TV and there is no time to watch everything right now! All we need is Americal Idol and we wouldn't have time to go to work!
