ELEVEN TEAMS OF FAN FAVORITE RACERS, CASTAWAYS AND HOUSEGUESTS COMPETE WHEN “THE AMAZING RACE” RETURNS FOR A SPECIAL 31ST TREK AROUND THE WORLD
The Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE returns with the first reality showdown among some of the most memorable and competitive players from THE AMAZING RACE, SURVIVOR and BIG BROTHER, now premiering on a new date and time, Wednesday, April 17 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The 11 teams will compete on the 25,000+ mile journey around the world to be crowned winners of the $1 million prize. Phil Keoghan returns to host.
Racers, Castaways and Houseguests will not only compete for the cash prize but for bragging rights for their respective shows. Will the former Racers’ travel experience be the most helpful? Will the former Survivors’ outwit, outplay and outlast the competition? Or, will the Big Brother players’ abilities to adapt and expect the unexpected make the difference?
This premiere date for THE AMAZING RACE replaces the previously announced date of Wednesday, May, 22.
THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another. At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges – some mental and some physical – and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination. They will compete on the 25,000-plus mile journey around the world to be crowned winners of the $1 million prize. Phil Keoghan returns as host. Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning at least $1 million.
Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Worldrace Productions in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
Until the Race begins, an NCIS rerun will occupy Million Dollar Mile‘s time slot this Wednesday, April 10.
