The Amazing Race got a number of rewards and nominations with more than ten million viewers watching every season released.
The show is filmed with the participation of 11 teams (each of the teams consists of only two participants). They participate in a race that is generally separated into 12 legs. Each of the legs requires deducing clues and navigating in unknown foreign places, interacting with local inhabitants, performing numerous mental and physical challenges, searching for transportations on a tight budget given. Progressive elimination is used in every new episode. The winners get $1 million.
The Amazing Race is a race around the world with the participation of the 11 teams of two. Every race consists of 12 legs – twelve competitions to put mental and physical abilities of the participants to the test. The end of every leg is a so-called Pit Stop allowing the participants to have some rest before they continue their journey filled with new challenges to go. When one of the teams arrives at a Pit Stop first, it is often given a prize. The last team to get to the Pit Stop is normally eliminated.
Some of the legs don’t finish with elimination. Double-length legs are often used – it’s when the team gets to the Pit Stop to meet the presenter who tells them to continue the race on new conditions. Every race finishes with a final leg with three teams participating in it. The race lasts for 25-30 days.
Every team has a small budget to operate with. They should choose proper transportation possibilities or they can travel on foot. For air traveling the participants are sometimes provided with a special credit card to get cheap tickets.
