THE AMAZING RACE

THE AMAZING RACE is a multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series hosted by Emmy Award-nominated host Phil Keoghan. This season will feature 11 new teams of dating couples: six are preexisting, and five are duos meeting for the first time at the starting line, for the most extreme blind date ever. Couples embark on a trek around the world, and at every destination, each team must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical. When the tasks are completed, they will learn their next location.  Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning THE AMAZING RACE and the million dollar prize.

 

The 26th season of THE AMAZING RACE premieres Wednesday, Feb. 25 (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The show moves to its regular time period on Friday, Feb. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
