The Amazing Race: Hay, Baby
The return of one of the show's most difficult challenges ever proves exhausting and, for some, enraging.

Meet the New Amazing Racers

Everyone's idea of a great vacation is one that involves running around with huge backpacks, shrieking at strange foreign taxi drivers while desperately looking at your watch, performing demeaning and scary feats of physical endurance, and then, maybe, at the end of the day being told that sorry your vacation is over, please go home. Sounds relaxing, right??

Amazing Race gets un-amazing pickup

If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it. CBS' The Amazing Race may be in the shadow of more popular reality shows like American Idol and Survivor, but no other show can boast an Emmy award for Outstanding Reality Competion Series… because The Amazing Race has won them all.

A couple from the Bay State couldn't figure much out, while some Globetrotters lived up to their name.

The Amazing Race Week 2: Beware the Dragon Puppets

The second week of The Amazing Race is always fun, because you get to see a little more personality and quirk from the teams, and to see which teams really are viable competitors rather than first time good-luckers. And, sigh, it would appear that once again youngs beat the olds.

The Amazing Race 22:

The Amazing Race 20:

The Amazing Race 19: Commencing on September 25, 2011, the nineteenth season of The Amazing Race includes a pair of twin sisters, a retired professional football player and his wife, a pair of former winners of Survivor, professional snowboarders and the youngest person to sail around the world solo, racing with his father. The race will be visiting a multitude of new countries and with new twists and obstacles in their way, the nineteenth instalment of the programme promises to be exciting, commencing just twenty days after The Amazing Race celebrates its tenth anniversary.

The Amazing Race 18: The eighteenth season of the race brings back former teams who have 'Unfinished Business'. The returning teams all have something to prove, as they begin their battle for redemption. The returning contestants include former NFL cheerleaders, Harlem Globetrotters, cowboys, a Gothic couple and The Amazing Race's only deaf contestant, racing with his mother, who are one of an unprecedented four parent/child teams. Commencing on February 20, 2011, the returning teams will travel the world for a second time, vying for revenge, redemption and a million dollars. Sisters LaKisha & Jennifer Hoffman became won redemption, by becoming the second ever all-female winners, following Nat & Kat's victory in the previous season. Congratulations to Kisha & Jen!

The Amazing Race 17: The seventeenth installment of the race became notorious on YouTube before the season even began, with a watermelon ricocheting onto a contestant's face. The racers departed on September 26, 2010, with teams including a pageant queen and her father, a father/son team of Internet sensations, the first African-American gay team, home shopping television hosts, a pair of female doctors, beach volleyball partners, and a recently reunited birth-mother and daughter. The race visited two new countries, Ghana and Bangladesh, and introduced two new twists -- the Express Pass, which could be used to bypass a single task on a leg (used only up to the eighth leg), and the Double U-Turn, which involved two teams forcing two different teams to turn back and complete both Detours. In the end, the season, seemingly themed around woman power with several, several strong, formidable women competing, culminated in two all-female teams running the final leg, along with a young dating couple. The ending thrilled many fans when, after seventeen seasons, an all-female team finally won the race. Congratulations to Nat & Kat, winners of this season of the race!

The Amazing Race 16: The sixteenth season of The Amazing Race commenced on February 14, 2010, stopping in places including Argentina, the Seychelles and Singapore. The teams include a pair of small-town cowboys, a notorious beauty queen well-known for her lack of intelligence, an MLB-winning coach and his daughter, two cops, two attorney mothers, and the race's first grandmother/granddaughter team. The race included the first-ever leg in which two Roadblocks were completed. Congratulations to Dan & Jordan, winners of this season of the race!

The Amazing Race 15: The fifteenth season began on September 27, 2009. Teams for this season included a pair of Harlem Globetrotters, the first interracial married couple, Christian country singers, and a fan of the program who had Asperger's Syndrome. Teams faced many obstacles along the way, including stops at nearly a half dozen locations never before seen on the race, as well as the Switchback -- a new race mechanism that turned out to be a revisitation of an old Roadblock from The Amazing Race 6. Congratulations to Meghan & Cheyne, winners of this season of the race!

The Amazing Race 14: The newest Amazing Race adventure has come and gone! The new season began on February 15, 2009, with the racers facing a challenging adventure with stops in Central Siberia and Beijing. The entire look and feel of the race was updated for the new edition and viewers were also given a more fast-paced and exciting race with, among other things, less time spent on airport drama. Teams this season include a pair of movie stuntmen, two self-described hillbillies and a mother and son team featuring the race's first ever deaf contestant. Overall, this season was well-regarded by fans, featuring a mixture of interesting and likable teams as well as some great dramatic moments. Some, however, lamented the lack of diversity of locations, as well as poor race planning that seemed to favor one particular team. Congratulations to Tammy & Victor, winners of this season of the race and the first Asian-American team ever to win!

The Amazing Race 13: This season of The Amazing Race came to CBS on September 28, 2008 and ended on December 7. This season saw a wide-ranging adventure with visits to such diverse locales as Kazakhstan and Cambodia. Reaction to this season was once again mixed, as were ratings. Congratulations to Nick and Starr, winners of this season of the race.

The Amazing Race 12: This adventure began on November 4, 2007 and ended in January 2008! CBS officially announced the return at the same time as the announcement of the cancellation of Viva Laughlin, giving viewers less than two weeks notice before the start of the new season. This season was lauded by both critics and viewers, becoming a new favorite for many. Congratulations to TK and Rachel, the winners of the twelfth season!

The Amazing Race 11: All Stars --- The first-ever All-Star edition for The Amazing Race has ended. This season featured eleven teams who raced on previous seasons of the program. As these teams raced around the world once more, they found themselves facing all-new challenges. This season had its share of surprises, but was met with mixed reviews by fans. Some were disappointed with the uneven structure of the race, as well as challenges that in many cases were considered poorly planned. Others, however, were entertained both by seeing the development of new dynamics when it came to past racers and the flaring of rivalry and drama between teams. Congratulations to Eric and Danielle, winners of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.
