CBS has announced the 11 teams racing around the globe for the opportunity to win the $1 million dollar prize, on the new season of “The Amazing Race.”
The show premieres on its new day and time, Friday, Sept. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS, with Phil Keoghan returning as host.
This season of “The Amazing Race” marks the 25th edition of the 10 time Emmy Award-winning series. The show will feature 11 new teams, including professional surfer Bethany Hamilton and her husband Adam Dirks, Boston firefighters Michael Ward and Scott Strazzullo and professional wrestlers Robbie E. Strauss and Brooke Adams.
The Race kicked off in May with the first-ever public start from Times Square in New York City where Phil Keoghan introduced a new game-changing element, “The Save.” The team that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded “The Save,” which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination.
Teams this season will be put to the test as they travel through eight countries and 20 cities, spanning more than 26,000 miles. For the first time in the show’s history, the Race will visit St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, where teams will fly high in the sky; Valletta, Malta, where they’ll rappel 200 feet into a breathtaking Blue Grotto sea cave; and the Shetland Islands, Scotland, to test their sheep-herding skills.
