TORONTO, Jan. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada's most-watched reality series is back

THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. Each Team is 
comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one 
another. At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges 
- some mental and some physical - and when the tasks have been completed, they 
learn their next destination. Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be 
eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the 
final destination winning at least $1 million. 
Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri, and 
Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 
Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. 
THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
