It is in the guide and set to air Sunday night at 8:00. And since the 30th is not a CBS DH night, it should start on time. Looks like they upped the prize to $2M.

Saw a promo the other night with the team of a professional rocker and an entertainment lawyer and I didn't know which was which. Looks interesting.

Of course this season gets a nice little boost before it even starts by winning the Emmy yet again one week before the season premier.

I believe the prize is $2 million only if the team that wins the first leg is the winner.

It got me to thinking that they should up the pot for each leg the ultimate winner won. Start with base pot of $1 million, then for each leg you win, add another $100,000 for just your team. So if you win 4 legs and are winner, then you get $1.4 million. Give them something to race for each leg other than not being last.

That is my understanding, the winner wins either $1 or $2 million, depending on the result of the first leg.

If I were racing, I think I'd like your method better than winning a bunch of trips.
Looking forward to this season. Hope they keep giving out prizes to pit-stop winners, in addition to possibly winning $2m. Only one team will win it. The trips would be good consolation prizes for those that take a pit-stop win during the season, but don't cross the finish line first.

I really have to stop picking people in the first ep to root for. Because the one couple I kind of thought it would be cool to root for right from the get go were the first eliminated. Oh well, after a couple more eps I'll get a better idea of the personalities of the team and figure out who I like, until then I'll just enjoy the scenery and the challenges.

I'll get it out of the way now as I know it's going to happen more than once this season...........READ THE FRAKKING CLUES!!!!!!!

How hard is it people?

I like the "twist" as it were, but as to who has the shot at winning the "big" prize, I don't think that team is going to make it to final two. One of them is too full of themselves and the other is stuck on la la la mode. We haven't picked a favorite team yet but with this crop that may be a while.

Hmmm.... the last two episodes were.... unexpected. Isn't this the second time that a team lost their passports, and the first time a taxi took off with a team's stuff. Plus, the unexpected airline delay with two teams arriving after the first time checked in. What a mess.

Yeah I noticed that they didn't even tell you what times the teams were leaving from the pit-stop like they always do. I guess they didn't want people to know how far apart the teams are on time right now. I'm not sure I remember seeing a season where there was such a large gap between those at the front of the pack and those at the end. I sense a big equalizer coming up next ep. The first available flight for the next leg probably won't leave for 12 hours or something to let those near the back catch up.

Yeah, I remember the team where one had Asperger's lost one of their passports which (according to articles online later) was turned into the US Embassy later on.

Then there was the team member, just in the past couple of seasons, who lost their passport at a gas station on the first leg but someone found it and brought it to the airport since they were fans of The Amazing Race, saw the camera crews and figured that's where they were headed.

Well what do you know, there weren't any flights available for over 12 hours, how convenient. :rolleyes: At least it was made interesting by the fact that pretty much everyone took a different flight. It wasn't one of those everyone caught up with each other and they were all on the same flight.

I liked James and Abba - wouldn't mind seeing them again.

Abbie and Ryan - not so much. Well Abbie yes, but not Ryan.

Heck, they lost because of a SERIES of freak incidents..

- falling into an open sewer and screwing up a knee.
- having other teams STEAL their money.
- having a cab driver STEAL their stuff.

As time went on, they really grew on me.

So we're down to the final four with the two hour finale coming this sunday. So who'll be the winner? Of course the best story would be the underdog goat farmers, who have come in last or second to last almost every round and have survived by the skin of their teeth the whole season. Or of course the Chippendale who's going to donate his winnings to his Dad with cancer. But I'm thinking the young couple from Texas is going to take it myself.
