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

Starting with Season 7, a change was made to the non-elimination leg penalty. In addition to being stripped of all their money and receiving no allowance for the next leg of the race, teams were forced to surrender all of their possessions, except for their passports and the clothes they were wearing, for the remainder of the race. (This penalty came to be referred to as "mugging" by fans.) They were also no longer allowed to beg for money prior to the start of the next leg (after the next leg started, they can beg for money). The racers could also receive or buy clothing or toiletries from other teams. See more »

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 »

Overwhelmed
9 January 2003 | by dangermouse0000See all my reviews

Not in a Flo way you understand, but this has to be my favourite 'game show' ever screened. I really wanted Ken & Gerard to win, but given a choice between Flo & Zach or Teri & Ian, I'm glad that Flo & Zach got it - at least that team had Zach as its' redeeming feature. The good news is that CBS in the US will start screening Amazing Race 4 in February 2003. I can't wait - this is a show that could just run and run. What a shame that only US citizens are accepted. I think that teams from different countries would give an additional dimension to the race.
