Thirteen unique teams of two are ready to complete a journey of 23,800 miles over eight countries and three continents in an American reality competition show, The Amazing Race Season 35. The teams will fight for $1 million.
The journey will start from Los Angeles and end in Washington. Meanwhile, the teams will visit Vietnam, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, Ireland, India, and Slovenia. The teams must complete the physical and mental challenges before learning about the upcoming location.
The previous season had twelve teams of two competing for $1 million. They had to complete a journey of only 11,000 miles, eight countries, and three continents. Accordingly, they started in Munich and ended in Nashville. In between, they visited Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria, Spain, Iceland, and France.
In the upcoming season, the teams will be eliminated on the way, and the first to reach the destination will win the race. It will bring a twist on the U-turn, non-elimination legs, and the Express Pass.
The Amazing Race Season 34 Recap
The Amazing Race Season 34 was broadcast from 21 September 2022 to 07 December 2022 on CBS. Derek Xiao and Claire Rehfuss, who took their romance from Big Brother 23, won the thirty-fourth season. The runner-ups were the long-lost twins, Emily Bushnell and Molly Sinert.
Luis Colon and Michelle Burgos, a married couple, were in third place. The first episode started in Munich, Germany. Thus, it was the first time an American version began outside America. Similarly, the franchise was filmed for the first time in Jordan.
The production team used the chartered Titan Airways Boeing 757 to maintain social distancing while filming amid the pandemic. All contestants had to be fully vaccinated before filming. Moreover, the childhood sweethearts, Abby Garrett and Will Freeman, were removed after testing positive for COVID-19 in the fifth episode.
Meanwhile, the newly wedded couple, Glenda Roberts and Lumumba Roberts, arrived last at the Pit Stop but continued in the race because Abby and Will were already eliminated due to medical reasons. The first leg of the season turned out to be the four-hundredth leg of the franchise, though the production team wanted to skip it.
Rich Kuo and Dom Jones, the motivational speakers, arrived eighth but returned to the car to take the hat. Thus, the ballroom dancers Aubrey Ares and David Hernandez used the opportunity, and the motivational speakers dropped to the ninth position.
