Phil Keoghan returns as host in the 29th cycle of The Amazing Race. This season of the CBS series once again features 11 pairs of contestants racing around the world in pursuit of a million-dollar prize. Before “GO,” the racers must complete a challenge to determine the pecking order for selecting a teammate, based only on first impressions.
Season 29 of The Amazing Race spans nine countries, 17 cities and 36,000 miles. The race kicks off in Los Angeles. Destinations this cycle include Panama City, Tanzania, Norway, and Greece.
