AXN, Mondays 9PM
The most fast-paced reality TV series is back, and this time, teams are thrown headfirst halfway across the globe for that good ol’ homesick feeling—right at the beginning of the race! The tenth season of The Amazing Race gets underway right smack in the middle of China, where language and culture barriers will surely get tempers to flare between teammates even before they reach their first Detour or Road Block!
This season boasts of a diverse cast: two Asian brothers, an Indian-American couple, a pair of Islamic friends, a one-legged triathlete (reminds us of PBB’s Rudy!), cheerleading captains, and the reigning Miss NY and Miss California, among others. Mongolia, Vietnam, and Kuwait are also among the destinations this season. Of course, the team with the most stamina to reach the finish line first scores a cool US$1 mil.
- In all, there have been 244 different contestants on The Amazing Race representing 112 teams over ten seasons. All seasons have featured 11 teams of two, except for Seasons 3, 4 and 10 with 12 teams of two, and Season 8, the special Family Edition that featured 10 families of four.
- Both contestants named "Chip" have won The Amazing Race (Reichen & Chip, Season 4; Chip & Kim, Season 5). Both contestants named "Drew" have come in fourth place (Kevin & Drew, Season 1; Derek & Drew, Season 3).
