The Amazing Race
8-9PM · CBS · Returns Sept. 28
The latest locales where racers will amaze are La Paz, Bolivia — with a mildly challenging altitude of 14,000 feet — and the Cambodian ruins of Angkor Wat. Teams include two competitive Texas divorcées, married Oregon hippies, a separated couple trying to get their marriage back on track (hmmm…what a non-stressful environment for healing), and two strangely unsavvy twentysomething dudes. ”They’re so smart and they make such dumb moves, it’s ridiculous,” says exec producer Bertram van Munster. ”Sometimes the smarter you are, the more difficult it is to go around the world.”
Phil Keoghan hosts the globe-trotting adventure series.
