What is The Amazing Race About? Plot Synopsis

The Amazing Race is a reality television competition, typically between eleven teams of two, in a race around the world. The race cycle is divided into a number of legs, normally twelve; each episode generally covers the events of one leg. Each leg ends with a Pit Stop, where teams are given a chance to rest and recover before starting the next leg twelve hours later. The first team to arrive at a Pit Stop is often awarded a prize such as a trip, while the last team is normally eliminated from the race. Some legs are non-elimination legs, where the last team to arrive may be penalized in the following leg. Some races have featured double-length legs, where there is no rest period at the Pit Stop and teams continue to race. The final leg of each race is run by the last three remaining teams, and the first to arrive at the final destination wins the show’s prize, one million dollars. The average length of each race is approximately 25 to 30 days.
