THE AMAZING RACE 12 will send 11 teams - each comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another - on a trek around the world for approximately 30 days. At every destination, each couple will have to compete in a series of challenges - some mental and some physical - and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination. Couples who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Television Studio and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

* This Fall, when an NFL game runs beyond 7PM, ET, thus causing a delay on the Network, viewers who subscribe to CBS' new viewer-centric marketing initiative, "CBS Eye-Lert," will receive updates via email and text messages if the start time of their program will be delayed.
