The Amazing Race 33 is Finally Here
The Amazing Race begins its 33rd trip around the world when 11 new teams take off from their homes and travel to their first destination, London, England, on the special two-hour season premiere tonight (Jan 5) (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS and streaming live and on demand on Paramount+*.
The season began filming in February 2020, but after three legs was forced to halt production due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over one and a half years later and the longest pitstop in the show’s history, The Amazing Race resumed and concluded production this fall. Phil Keoghan hosts.
The 11 teams begin the season from their homes and travel to London, England, where they must find “The Queen” and “Boris Johnson” having a nosh. They then travel to Scotland, where the nearly 20-month pitstop began.
Host Phil Keoghan will utter the iconic words “the world is waiting for you (again)” at the re-start line of leg four in Switzerland, and teams then travel through France, Greece, Portugal and Los Angeles, where the team to cross the final finish line first will be crowned the winners of The Amazing Race and the $1 million prize.
