The Amazing Race Season 22 Spoilers: What’s the New Twist?
Get ready for more Survivor-like alliances on The Amazing Race Season 22, which premieres February 17 on CBS.
Entertainment Weekly revealed the 11 new teams, which include Jennifer Kuhle (granddaughter of John Wayne) and Caroline Cutbirth (descendant of Daniel Boone) of the country band Stealing Angels. This season will also include NHL player Bates Battaglia and his brother Anthony, and YouTube channel hosts Joey Graceffa and Meghan Camarena.
According to EW, the teams will travel 30,000 miles through nine countries on five different continents, plus "skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland."
There’s also a new twist. Instead of the first team to arrive at the first Pit Stop getting one Express Pass to skip any task, the first team at this season's first Pit Stop will get TWO Express Passes. They get to keep one for themselves, but the other they must give to another team of their choosing before the end of the fourth leg. So that will probably lead to alliances and other potential drama.
