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

When describing the pit stop for each leg, Phil's voice-over originally said "the last team to check in here *will* be eliminated" for most legs, but would say "the last team to check in here *may* be eliminated" on non-elimination legs. This took away the suspense, as the audience knew based on the voice-over whether the leg was a non-elimination. Phil now says "the last team to check in here may be eliminated" on every leg to avoid spoiling whether that leg is a non-elimination leg. See more »

Goofs

In the leg from Switzerland to Malaysia, the Amazing Yellow Line charts a plane ride from Geneva to Paris to Kuala Lumpur. However, according to the map, Paris is placed in the Iberian peninsula near Madrid, Spain. See more »

User Reviews

just amazing!
15 October 2001 | by fritz2525See all my reviews

WOW! This tv show is good enough to beat Survivor but they belong in the same network so... Anyway, I like how they put it together--[11 teams with 2 people in each team]. The one that really gives colour to the show is the contestants and their personality. The editing was really great & I think they should win an Emmy for this. There's alot of action in it and great games. After watching an episode you just can't wait for the next one. Right now I heard its the second best reality show next to Survivor so again GOOD JOB CBS! One thing I love about this show is the places, every episode they go to different country. >
