The long-awaited season of the Amazing Race premieres tonight on CBS at 10 pm! For the very first time, the show will match up complete strangers at the starting line. The newly formed duos will work together (OR NOT!) to win the 1 million dollar prize. Typically, contestants audition for the show as pairs and already have an established relationship.
Before you tune in tonight, watch the first seven minutes of the new season right here. Then, join Steven tonight for his live blog. The last time Amazing Race was on air was last spring.
The Amazing Race Season 29: Meet the Cast of 22 Strangers
Check out the first seven minutes below.
The Amazing Race returns this season with a race unlike any before. In a brand new twist, all 22 Racers are complete strangers who will meet on the starting line. Before ‘GO,’ Racers will immediately compete in a challenge that will determine the order for picking a Teammate, based on nothing but first impressions. These new pairs of Teammates will then have mere moments to learn their traveling companion’s name before beginning a race around the world that will span 9 countries, 17 cities and 36,000 miles. The new season of the 10-time Emmy Award-winning series premieres on a new date and time, Thursday, March 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
