Amazing Race 22: Meet the Teams

Amazing Race 22: Meet the Teams

The Amazing Race 22 is set to start Sunday, Feb. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS, but that’s not the interesting tidbit, according to the CBS teaser video below, three teams quit before the end of the first episode. Check out the sneak peek video and the team line-up below.

The teams will travel 30,000 miles through nine countries on five different continents, plus “skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland.”

There’s also a new twist. Instead of the first team to arrive at the first Pit Stop getting one Express Pass to skip any task, the first team at this season’s first Pit Stop will get TWO Express Passes. They get to keep one for themselves, but the other they must give to another team of their choosing before the end of the fourth leg. So that will probably lead to alliances and other potential drama.
