Here We Go! The Amazing Race is back and better than ever! Host Phil Keoghan is back, sending 12 teams around the world on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The twist? For the first time in The Amazing Race history, the starting line is outside the U.S.A.

This season of The Amazing Race is set to be one of the most grueling yet, with no non-elimination legs, meaning that a team will be eliminated during every single leg of the race. Buckle up!

Other locations that teams will travel to include Austria, Italy, France, Spain, Iceland and Nashville, where the first team to cross the final finish line will be crowned the winner of The Amazing Race and the $1 million prize.

The Amazing Race also celebrates 400 episodes this season in its new time period, Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca, and the CTV app. Here is a sneak peek at the teams that will keep you at the edge of your seat and glued to your TV all season long!
