Tonight on CBS The Amazing Race returns with its 22 season. Phil Keoghan returns as the host this season. 11 new teams will embark on a sprint around the globe for $1 million dollars. The contestants this season includes best friends, newlyweds, firefighters, country singers, twin doctors and roller derby moms.
This season teams will travel more than 30,000 miles, over five continents and through nine countries as they skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland.
They also will have a new twist thrown at them this season. While in the past the first team to arrive at the initial Pit Stop has earned an Express Pass that allows them to skip any task of their choosing, the team that arrives before all others at this season’s first Pit Stop will receive two Express Passes — one to keep for themselves and another one that must be given to another team of their choosing before the end of the fourth leg. It has the power of making one other team very happy, and several others unhappy over not receiving it.
On tonight’s show called, “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.
