Get ready for a race unlike any before when the worldwide hit reality television show, The Amazing Race, returns for its 29th edition on AXN.
Unlike in previous seasons, this season offers a fresh, new format in response to the clamor of The Amazing Race fans for years. When the race begins on March 31, all 22 contestants are complete strangers who meet for the first time on the starting line.
They compete in a challenge that will determine the order for choosing a teammate, based on nothing but first impressions. Then, these new teams engage in fierce competition as they complete a series of physical and mental challenges while racing around the world, spanning 17 cities in nine countries across five continents.
These odd couples of newfound partners, which include an army drill sergeant, a professional snowboarder, a Wall Street banker, an auctioneer, and a college drum major, among others, discover for themselves how they handle the pressure and cope with the tension of competing and traveling with someone they just met.
The first team to arrive at the final finish line will win the grand prize of US$1 million and crowned the winners of The Amazing Race.
New Zealand television personality Phil Keoghan returns as host in this latest installment of the competitive reality series.
The Amazing Race Season 29 premieres on March 31, every Friday at 8:50pm within 12 hours of the U.S. telecast. First & Exclusive on AXN.
