There are lots of exciting places on the list for Amazing Race: Unfinished Business. The detailed list includes Yokohama, Japan; Lijiang and Kunming, China; Kolkata and Varanasi, India; Vienna, Austria; Zermatt, Switzerland; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Also, for the first time, the race will visit Liechtenstein where teams were tasked with measuring the landlocked country on mo-peds.
Other changes are on the horizon for the game itself that the teams may not be too happy about. In the premiere, Keoghan informs the players that the last team to arrive on the mat will automatically face a U-turn, forcing the duo to perform both Detour challenges, while first-place finishers will receive the Express Pass, allowing a team to skip one task during the race.
So what took so long for it to be filmed in HD? It was thought that it was due to the cost of transporting all the HD equipment across the world. The producers listened to the fans demands however that it be shot in HD and have delivered, promising America gorgeous shots of the world that only HD can capture.
