TV Guide's Hit & Misses review of the premiere: ?
If you thought Colin was obnoxious in Race's fifth running, get ready for Jonathan, a grating hothead and chronic whiner who constantly berates his poor wife, Victoria, and for no discernable reason considers himself "a mental magician". Can he make himself disappear? The two-hour premiere takes the 11 teams, including a pair of married pro-wrestlers, on a first leg to Iceland. They camp overnight on a glacier and wake to an ice-climbing challenge. With plenty of players to root for and against, TV's best reality show is as thrilling as ever.
Matt Roush's score: 8 (out of 10)
