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
Dustin and Kandice (Season 10) were selected to race in The Amazing Race All-Stars (Season 11). Notably, Dustin and Kandice did not make the usual interview tours after their elimination in this race for the first time, as they were still racing in All-Stars when the episode in which they were eliminated aired. Dustin married her high school sweetheart prior to the start of All-Stars. In the pre-race interviews for All-Stars, Dustin states that Kandice was a bridesmaid at her wedding, which she might not have been had they not run the Season 10 Race together. See more »
When the teams are travelling from Argentina to Mozambique in the fourth episode of the All-Stars series, Phil Keoghan's voice-over states that there are no international flights out of Ushuaia Airport. However, at what the on-screen caption claims is Ushuaia Airport, a Qantas plane is clearly visible. Qantas is Australia's main international airline and would not be present at a solely domestic airport in Argentina (Qantas do, however, fly to Buenos Aires, so the scene was presumably filmed at Buenos Aires' international airport).

During the opening credits, quick shots of locations can be seen, hinting at which countries the race will visit. In Season 6, quick shots include the Nordic Hotel Ice Bar (Stockholm, Sweden) and the Brandenburg Gate (Germany). See more »
Once upon a time I really enjoyed the Amazing Race. It was fun, exciting, and sometimes heartbreaking. The contestants were people you could cheer for... or against. Of late, though, I have lost interest because of a decision by the executives to move away from what made the show appealing. At one time the racers were common people, just like you and I. A couple of coal miners from Kentucky. Two cowboys who were brothers. The list is too long to continue. This made the race fun. You could sit down and compare yourself to your peers. Now, however, the executives have decided to feature teams made up of ex professional athletes. models, stars from other reality TV shows and YouTube stars. In short, people who are not like the average American. I watched a couple of episodes this year and realized I just did not enjoy the show anymore. If the producers decided to go back to the original format, maybe they get my viewership back.. Until they do consider me an ex-fan.
