THE AMAZING RACE is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan.  The show features teams of two on a trek around the world for approximately 30 days.  At every destination, each team of two will have to compete in a series of challenges -- some mental and some physical -- and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination.  Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.


Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc., in association with Touchstone Television and Amazing Race Productions.  THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
