What’s This TV Show About?
A reality TV series competition airing on the CBS television network, The Amazing Race is hosted by Phil Keoghan. It once again features 11 pairs of contestants racing around the world in pursuit of a million-dollar prize. From the starting line in New York City’s Washington Square Park they’ll set out for Iceland, to traverse a canyon above the Geitargljufur River. In all, the racers will visit 10 countries and 21 cities across 29,000 miles, in their quest to cross the finish line.
Racing this time out are: NBA All-Stars Cedric Ceballos and Shawn Marion; Big Brother season 19 couple Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf; musicians Trevor Wadleigh and Chris Marchant; IndyCar drivers Alexander Rossi and Conor Daly; competitive eaters Joey Chestnut and Tim Janus; professional skiers and X Game champs Kristi Leskinen and Jen Hudak; Goat Yoga Instructors April Gould and Sarah Williams; nationally ranked debaters Henry Zhang and Evan Lynyak; Ring Girls and Instagram models Dessie Mitcheson and Kayla Fitzgerald; lifeguards Lucas Bocanegra and Brittany Austin; and twin brothers and firefighters Eric Guiffreda and Daniel Guiffreda.

Season 30 Ratings
The 30th season of The Amazing Race averaged a 1.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 5.51 million viewers. Compared to season 29, that’s up by 39% and 37%, respectively. Find out how The Amazing Race stacks up against the other CBS TV shows.
Over the years, the ratings have dropped quite a bit, and it took until the May Upfronts for the series to eke out a 30th cycle renewal. Still, I’d think if the network was ready to let it go, they’d already know that, and would capitalize on a “30th and final season racing toward the finish line” marketing campaign. I think that a 31st season will air next season. I’ll update this page with breaking developments but I expect a renewal. Subscribe for free alerts on The Amazing Race cancellation or renewal news.
