Sea­son 27 SONY (*127) 19:35

An­noyed that SABC3 has been forced to drop fan-favourite rac­ing re­al­ity show The Amaz­ing Race (2001-cur­rent) af­ter air­ing sea­son 22 ear­lier this year? Well, the good Host Phil news is that you can still get Keoghan. your fix – sea­son 27 (2015) is air­ing on SONY from tonight! And while we’ve missed out on four sea­sons, there’s no rea­son for you not to pick up your pass­port, travel bag and get rac­ing from the com­fort of your couch.

We’re now only one sea­son be­hind the US, who saw sea­son 28 be­tween Novem­ber and De­cem­ber last year and says host Phil Keoghan, “You never see the same things on The Amaz­ing Race. We’ve added ‘stars’ through­out the sea­son – some of our iconic lo­ca­tions from sea­son 1 and I know that some of the orig­i­nal Amaz­ing Race fans will get a kick out of see­ing that.”

And to go with that “some­thing old”, the pro­duc­ers have added some­thing new – a Sin­gle Ex­press Pass. The Ex­press Pass re­ward al­lows the hold­ers to skip any sin­gle task (ex­cept the Fast For­ward) and be­fore this sea­son, it had to be used be­fore the eighth leg (episode 8). Now with the sin­gle ver­sion, it must be given to another team once it’s been used dur­ing the race and new hold­ers have to use it in the very next leg.

As for the teams, they’re once again in re­la­tion­ships out­side the game and Phil adds, “What I love about this show is that you don’t see it as much as other shows, where peo­ple spe­cialise in a par­tic­u­lar tal­ent. [Like on cook­ing shows] They cook… [or danc­ing shows] they dance… these peo­ple have noth­ing in com­mon. We just want them in the race be­cause they’re in­ter­est­ing!”
