'Amazing Race' host Phil Keoghan teases "heartbreaking" moments
The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan has teased that there are "heartbreaking" moments this season.
The CBS competition premiered its 22nd season last night (February 17) but Keoghan told TV Guide that the contestants will not have an easy ride.
"Early on in the season, there are a couple of big game-changing moments," he said. "You might say heartbreaking moments as well.
"Teams are put in a really challenging situation where they're drawing on all their strength to decide what to do and it's difficult. It's not too dissimilar to what happened to the rockers [whose bags and passports were stolen last season]. In the rockers' case, they really had no out, but there are moments where teams find themselves saying, 'Is this it? Are we done for?'"
Keoghan also hinted that people's perceptions of the teams may change as the season develops, saying: "What you see in the Race always is you never know how teams evolve.
"Sometimes it's teams who appear to be nice in the beginning who twist and become a little exclusive. Some are talking to some and not others. I just love that on our show. We always see such crazy diversity."
He added that he had been unable to pick the final three teams this season, joking: "At least I admit it!
"I did manage to pick two teams who made the top five. That's the best I've done in a long, long time. I don't mind admitting that I suck at picking the finalists."
The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
