In this competition series, two-person teams face off against each other in a globe-spanning race for treasure. Along the way, they'll encounter calculated challenges and solve difficult puzzles (if they're lucky). Only one team, though, can be the ultimate winner. The series debuted in 2001 on CBS. The format of the series follow teams as they move through different legs of the race. Each leg requires teams to complete challenges and arrange transportation on a limited budget. The slowest team to complete each leg is eliminated. Eventually only one team is left. The race has traveled around the world over the course of its many seasons. As of 2020, the show was conducted legs in 32 different countries. To date, the show has visited every continent except Antarctica. The series has been a reliable ratings performer for CBS over the years. It is never at the top of the rankings, but it has a devoted audience. Critics have found plenty to like in the series. One of its strong points is that it avoids much of the created interpersonal drama that makes up most of other reality shows. The entertainment value of The Amazing Race lies mostly in the teams' race to complete challenges. That sets it apart from many other series in the reality genre.
