"We're Getting Out of the Country, Girls" -- Teams are ecstatic to trade their car keys for plane tickets to their next destination out of the country, on THE AMAZING RACE 8, Tuesday, Oct. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is the host of the series.
The families depart from New Orleans, La. and head to Barro Colorado Islanda in Gamboa, Panama. One racer repeatedly strikes out during a road block and gets irritated by the incessant encouragement from fellow teammates. Two teams race for the first Fast Forward on the course where they must face a fear of extreme heights. Under enormous pressure and afraid of falling behind, one family gets heated with their driver for wanting to pick up other passengers.
EDITOR'S NOTE: This episode of THE AMAZING RACE was filmed partly in New Orleans a few months before Hurricane Katrina struck the area. At the beginning of the show, host Phil Keoghan will provide information to viewers on how they can contribute to the relief efforts.
