Teams will travel to such exotic locations as Kuwait, Mongolia, Beijing, Madagascar and Hanoi, Vietnam.
The 12 Teams, including the first Indian-American team, a coal miner and his wife, reigning beauty queens, an amputee and a high school teacher, will compete against one another in a race around the world for a $1 million prize. THE AMAZING RACE 10 will begin with a special 90-minute premiere, Sunday, Sept. 17 (8:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Starting Sunday, September 24, THE AMAZING RACE will move to its new home, Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Phil Keoghan is host of the series.
The race begins in Seattle, Wash. when Teams begin jockeying for available flights to the first destination, Beijing, China. Once there, Teams are faced with their first Roadblock, which requires them to feast on a Chinese delicacy. As the racers continue to navigate their way through the busy streets of Beijing, they are faced with the game’s first twist. Meanwhile, the racer’s physical prowess is put to the test when they must climb a portion of the Great Wall of China.
