The Amazing Race has long been one of my favorite shows on television. It’s hard not to be a fan if you love travel.
The Amazing Race, winner of 10 Emmy awards will be airing its 25th edition on a new night starting Friday September 26. The show will feature 11 teams.
This season the race will introduce a new twist. According to CBS.com there will be a new game-changing element- The Save. The team that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded “The Save”, which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination”.
During the season teams will visit 8 countries and 20 cities. This will be the first time the show will visit St Thomas, Malta and the Shetland Islands in Scotland.
Here are the teams:
- Adam & Bethany- A husband and wife team with Bethany being a professional surfer
- Brooke & Robbie- A boyfriend/ girlfriend team of professional wrestlers
- Dennis & Isabelle- A boyfriend/ girlfriend team featuring an accountant and a model
- Keith & Whitney- Engaged team featuring a singer/ songwriter and energy advisor
- Kym & Alli- Friends- one a personal trainer, the other a Soul Cycle instructor
- Lisa & Michelle- Real estate agent sisters
- Maya & Amy- PhD Students who are lab mates and friends
- Michael & Scott- Friends who are both firefighters
- Misti & Jim- Married dentist & orthodontist
- Shelley & Nici- A mother & daughter team who are flight attendants
- Tim & Te Jay- Dating team featuring a flight attendant and server/ female impersonator
While its hard to pick a team to cheer for before seeing what they’re like during the competition, I’ll do a couple of pre-show selections on who I’d like to see win.
I’d like to see the team of firefighters, Michael and Scott or the team of flight attendants, Shelley & Nici come out on top. My thoughts on this are likely to change once we get to know the teams throughout the season.
Are you a fan of The Amazing Race? Which team would you like to see win the show based on these brief descriptions?
