Spooky, The Amazing Race has contestants in pairs racing around the world following clues and doing task native to the region they are in. The cool thing about the show is you get to travel without going anywhere and they show alot of the non touristy area. The contestants have bungy jumped, played highland games, operated heavy machinery, panned for gold, rode a dog sled, swam with the dolphins, drove cars, rode on trains, etc. Each race has a check in point and the last team to checkin is out of the game. So there is no voting people out, etc. And sometimes a team could be in the lead and miss a turnoff or drive the wrong way and next thing they are dead last. It is quite exciting and there are always interesting teams to cheer on. The first year they had these two fraternity brothers from New York and they were hilarious as they navigated the race. They had brother and sister teams, boyfriend and girlfriend, mom and daughters. Tune in, you won't be disappointed.
