Scoop: THE AMAZING RACE on CBS - Today, February 17, 2013
"Business in the Front, Party in the Back" - Teams arrive in paradise where they find themselves skydiving from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, and in an AMAZING RACE first, three teams throw in the towel during the first sweltering Roadblock of the season, on the 22nd season premiere of THE AMAZING RACE, tonight, Feb. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Emmy Award nominee Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan) is the host.
THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another. 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.
