CBS Press Release:
BIGGER PREMIERE, FASTER COURSE,
ONE TEAM GOES HOME BEFORE LEAVING THE STARTING LINE
CBS Announces the 12 Teams Racing in the 15th Installment Of The
Emmy Award-Winning Series “The Amazing Race” Premiering on Sept. 27
CBS today announced the 12 Teams set to compete in THE AMAZING RACE 15, which premieres with a special two-hour episode on Sunday, Sept. 27 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 2009 Emmy Award nominee, Phil Keoghan, is the host.
Contestants will travel one of the fastest courses ever assembled on the Race — spanning eight countries in just 21 days. Season 15 also features the quickest elimination in the history of the series, sending one Team home before they leave the starting line. Teams fortunate enough to avoid the surprise elimination and compete for the $ 1 million prize 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.Details
