There anticipation level is high for when The Amazing Race premieres its latest installment this Sunday at 8 pm on CBS. Not only is the show being broadcast in high definition, it is also made up of past racers returning for a second chance at a million dollars.
Host Phil Keogahn previewed what to expect while speaking at a benefit to raise money for MS this week. “They’re all teams that are looking to redeem themselves. Teams that have been U-turned. A team, like Zev and Justin, who lost a passport. They went from last to first and back to last again. Kisha and Jen, who stopped for a very unfortunate pee break and lost out on the leg in Beijing, if you remember they’re all teams that people loved, but ultimately, it’s like, ‘All right, you know everybody deserves a second chance, you’ve got some unfinished business with the show. No more making excuses.’”
This season will also feature a fan favorite from last season, Gary and Mallory. You might recall that Gary and Mallory followed a map rather than asking locals for directions, which ultimately put them in last place. It should be interesting to see if history repeats itself or if these racers make smarter choices.
Are you looking forward to seeing previous racers? Do you think they deserve a second chance or are some doomed to make the same mistakes? Don’t miss out on the exciting premiere when The Amazing Race kicks off with the racers heading down under to Australia.
