CBS ANNOUNCES THE CAST FOR THE MILESTONE 25TH EDITION OF THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING SERIES "THE AMAZING RACE," PREMIERING FRIDAY, SEPT. 26

This Year's Emmy Award Winner For Outstanding Reality-Competition Program Races To A New Day And Time, Fridays At 8:00 PM This Fall

Series Introduces New Game-Changing Element, "The Save"

CBS announced today the 11 teams racing around the globe for the opportunity to win the $1 million dollar prize, on the new season of THE AMAZING RACE. The show premieres on its new day and time, Friday, Sept. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan (@philkeoghan) is the host.

This season of THE AMAZING RACE, which marks the 25th edition of the 10 time Emmy Award-winning series, will feature 11 new teams, including professional surfer Bethany Hamilton and her husband Adam Dirks, Boston firefighters Michael Ward and Scott Strazzullo and professional wrestlers Robbie E. Strauss and Brooke Adams.

The Race kicked off in May with the first-ever public start from Times Square in New York City where Phil Keoghan introduced a new game-changing element, "The Save." The team that finishes first in the premiere episode will be awarded "The Save," which they can use to rescue themselves if they come in last on a leg and face elimination.

Teams this season will be put to the test as they travel through eight countries and 20 cities, spanning more than 26,000 miles. For the first time in the show's history, the Race will visit St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, where teams will fly high in the sky; Valletta, Malta, where they'll rappel 200 feet into a breathtaking Blue Grotto sea cave; and the Shetland Islands, Scotland, to test their sheep-herding skills.

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.
