This season features 11 teams racing around the globe for the opportunity to win the $1 million dollar prize, on a special season of THE AMAZING RACE. This season features 11 new teams of all dating duos with a twist: six who are preexisting couples, and five duos who will meet for the very first time at the starting line when they are set up on the most extreme blind date ever. Racers include New Kids on the Block Member Jonathan Knight, and Olympic Medalists Aly Dudek and Steven Langton, and more. THE AMAZING RACE, 10-time Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series, sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. 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. 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.
