Eleven teams will embark on the adventure of a lifetime on the new season of The Amazing Race. Phil Keoghan is the host. This season, the multi-Emmy Award-winning series sends 11 new Teams on a Race around the globe, making first-time visits to exotic locations such as Indonesia, Malawi, Belgium, and Denmark. Teams will be tested early and often and met with a new penalty called the "Hazard," which will impact one Team's future on the Race right from the starting line. Teams fortunate enough to survive the first leg will find themselves amidst an 8th Century Buddhist temple in Indonesia, riding elephants through the rain forests of Thailand, and racing for their lives when they discover they're facing the series' first ever Double Elimination. This season's cast includes a pair of Olympic snowboarders; twin sisters; an ex-NFL tight end; the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone; two winners of Survivor, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca; and many more.
