Ready, set, race!
A new set of 11 teams will embark on a mad dash around the world for a shot at winning $1 million dollars on a new season of “The Amazing Race.”
The Emmy-winning reality series returns with a new season and a new twist on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8/7c on CBS. The network announced Wednesday the cast of characters who will embark on the 25-trek that will cover more than 30,000 miles, five continents, nine countries, innumerable bad taxi rides — and a 10,000 feet skydive in Bora Bora. The teams include a pair of Roller Derby Moms, country singers, firefighters and twin OB/GYNs.
The 22nd installment of “The Amazing Race” will introduce a new twist to the game in which the first team to check in at the first pit stop will earn two “Express Passes” – one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another Team by the end of the fourth leg of the Race, according to the press release.
