Season 22 Teams
Eleven teams will compete for the $1 million prize on the upcoming season of The Amazing Race, which premieres at 8 p.m. Feb. 17. They will travel more than 30,000 miles, visiting five continents and nine countries. Among their tasks will be skydiving from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participating in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunting for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scaling the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland. This season of the competition also will feature a new twist wherein the first team to check in at the first pit-stop will earn two “Express Passes” — one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another team by the end of the fourth leg of the race.
