“If there ever was a season that I consider one of the best, it’s this one,” said Bertram van Munster,” executive producer, director and co-creator of The Amazing Race. “It’s insanely funny, fast-paced and dramatic all at once. Teams are in hot pursuit of one another at every location and its reality television at its nail-biting best.”

Introducing the 11 new diverse teams of the twelfth instalment of The Amazing Race:

· Marianna and Julia Ruiz, sisters originally from Miami and now residing in Los Angeles, are ready to become the first all-female team to win the Race.

· Kynt Cothron and Vyxsin Fiala, dating goths from Louisville, KY., are eager to represent the “goth” community around the world.

    I think the Amazing Race needs to change their format for in-game Detours. Each detour should have three options instead of two, since up until this point, all the detours have focused on completing either a “fast-and-risky” objective or a “slow-and-unrisky” objective. It shouldn’t be so obvious which detour option will take a longer or shorter amount of time.
