CBS announced the new cast for this fall’s The Amazing Race. The Emmy-winning reality show competition will again be hosted by Phil Keoghan and will air on Sunday nights.
The show’s 23rd competition will again include the Double Express Pass twist that producers introduced last season. When a team wins the first pit stop, the players will get an “Express Pass” for themselves and another that they have to give to a team of their choice by the fifth leg of the competition.
Amazing Race will feature four continents and nine countries, covering 35,000 miles. Some of the adventurous challenges include paragliding in Chile, a plunge in Norway and Formula One Racing in Abu Dhabi.
