The Amazing Race is a reality competition show in which teams of two people, who have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at "Pit Stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and to avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including airplanes, hot air balloons, helicopters, trucks, bicycles, taxicabs, cars, trains, buses, boats, and by foot. Clues provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination (indicated by a predominantly yellow flag or marker) or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country wherein they are located or its culture. Teams are progressively eliminated until three are left; at that point, the team that arrives first in the final leg is awarded the grand prize.

In Popular Culture[]

  • Sesame Street gave a parody of the show called "The Amazing Alphabet Race" where Elmo had to find letters of the alphabet in the neighborhood while racing a chicken.
  • MAD TV also coined some parodies called, "The Amazing Presidential Race".
  • In 2000, Wendy's released a commercial that parodized the show where the contestants had to find a Spicy Chicken Sandwich, which they promoted in the commercial.
