The Amazing Race, sometimes referred to as TAR, is a reality television game show in which teams of two people , who have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race
around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to
arrive first at "pit stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win
prizes and to avoid coming last, which carries the possibility of
elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg.
Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of
transportation modes, including plances, taxis, rental cars, trains, buses, boats and by foot. The clues in each leg point takes the teams to the next destination or
direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member.
These challenges are related in some manner to the country or culture
where they are located. Teams are progressively eliminated until three
are left; at that point, the team that arrives first in the final leg
is awarded a grand prize of $1 million.
