I really want to start watching The Amazing Race, but I don't know what seasons to watch. Can you please suggest some for me?

It depends on what aspect do you focus on when you watch TAR

For flight drama : TAR 5
For teams drama : TAR 3 / 5 / 11
For difficult tasks : TAR 18
For beautiful scenery : TAR 22
For inspirational stories : TAR 14 / 20

TAR3/5. After those two seasons you will instantly fall in love with the show. Especially 5.

I actually recommend 12, 17 and 25 if you focus on task. GOLD seasons like 3,5,6 are great, but the task is rather simple to somewhat dull compare to the recent seasons. (I mean come on, if running around fountain is used as RB nowadays we would be bitching about it forever.) But the authentic feeling of location and actual race, navigation with a lot of flight drama and self/driving and also the editing and teams' interaction really made up for this and make it super entertaining.

So if you watch the older season, you should keep in mind that the task and leg structure might not the the best since it's still trying to find its own identity and kinda in the transition state. (It become more stable in season 12 and onward.) :)

Oh, and check out TARAus2. It's AMAZING. <3

PS. I also think 18 is actually an amazing season. But I didn't suggest because it's a returnee season. So I think you should maybe watch it after 12-17 for the full entertainment. <33

Any season of TAR Israel. Best version of the show bar none.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)
--Got something you're curious about? You'll probably find the answer on the Wiki!

TAR5 was the one that got me hooked.

Australia 2 is the quintessential international season to see.

And also international: if you can find it with subtitles, any season of HaMerotz LaMillion, Israel's TAR. By far the longest legs (each one is broken up into 3 full episodes) and some of the most unique tasks TAR has ever seen.

I would suggest, this order:

TAR3
TAR5
TAR12
TAR17
TAR25
TAR Australia 2

It's a good progression of how TAR has developed over the years.

Definitely TAR4 and 5, I'd also recommend Season 1

I also like Asia 2, Australia 1-2 and all of Canada
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
