The Amazing Race on TV2

7:30pm Monday, November 7 on TV2

This week in The Amazing Race, the teams hit the ground running in South-east Asia as they hotly pursue the $1 million prize.

On Monday 7th November:: The teams struggle to keep pace in the hectic streets of Vietnam and one team risks its own position in the race by offering to help the competition.

Then on Tuesday 8th November: The teams scramble to spot royalty in the jam-packed streets of Cambodia; and one team monkeys around and breaks the race’s cardinal rule by losing a passport.

Over the course of the race, contestants will travel one of the fastest courses ever assembled on the race – spanning eight countries in just 21 days.

Teams will face the ‘switchback,’ which sends teams back to the site of one of the series’ most infamous roadblocks, as well as a surprise appearance by one of America’s most beloved entertainers, a visit to the world’s tallest building and a spicy twist on a Japanese game show.

The diverse cast of racers includes a team of Harlem Globetrotters, professional female poker players, the first-ever racer with Asperger’s Syndrome, married yoga teachers and a former Miss America.
