ELEVEN TEAMS BEGIN THEIR RACE AROUND THE WORLD WHEN THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING REALITY SERIES "THE AMAZING RACE 7" DEBUTS
WITH A SPECIAL 2-HOUR BROADCAST, TUESDAY, MARCH 1
ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
"Courteous? This is a race!" -- Eleven couples will compete in a race around the world with one couple taking home the $1 million prize when THE AMAZING RACE 7, the two-time Emmy Award-winning reality series, premieres with a special two-hour broadcast, Tuesday, March 1 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is the host of the series.
The race starts in picturesque Long Beach, California and quickly takes the teams to Lima, Peru where, upon landing, they have to take a bus to their next clue. One team is fluent in Spanish and immediately leads several teams to the right bus. Choosing between a detour of leading llamas or carrying heavy baskets into town, one team chooses to lead two especially disagreeable llamas and spends much of the task dodging showers of spit. Another team decides to carry the heavy baskets, but one of them nearly passes-out from exhaustion caused by the high altitude.
THE AMAZING RACE 7 is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 11 teams of two against each other in a race around the world for approximately 30 days. At every destination, each couple must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination. Couples who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million. As seen in the previous installments of the series, relationships among the teams will be tested and some will grow closer while others may decide to part ways.
