Contestants will travel nearly 40,000 miles across five continents and eight countries. Eleven teams start off by navigating through the congested streets of Los Angeles and, for the first time ever, must rely solely on public transportation to make their way to LAX. The teams' first destination lies in Chile, where they will encounter one of the most daunting roadblocks in the history of the series. In their ongoing battle for the one million dollar prize, teams will participate in a grueling World War I reenactment in France; retrace the early days of the iconic rock group, the Beatles; and come face-to-face with one of the world's most infamous villains. Season 16 features teams from all walks of life, including couples, parents, siblings, friends, models, lawyers, detectives, and even cowboys.
