This reality competition sees teams embark on a trek around the world to amazing destinations where they must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical. Only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning the race and the $1 million prize.
Not in a Flo way you understand, but this has to be my favourite 'game show' ever screened. I really wanted Ken & Gerard to win, but given a choice between Flo & Zach or Teri & Ian, I'm glad that Flo & Zach got it - at least that team had Zach as its' redeeming feature. The good news is that CBS in the US will start screening Amazing Race 4 in February 2003. I can't wait - this is a show that could just run and run. What a shame that only US citizens are accepted. I think that teams from different countries would give an additional dimension to the race.
Set in Springfield, the average American town, the show focuses on the antics and everyday adventures of the Simpson family; Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, as well as a virtual cast of thousands. Since the beginning, the series has been a pop culture icon, attracting hundreds of celebrities to guest star. The show has also made name for itself in its fearless satirical take on politics, media and American life in general.
