Synopsis

The first season of the elaborate reality/adventure series The Amazing Race finds 11 teams, each consisting of two "related" players, competing throughout the world for a one-million-dollar prize -- all the while racing against the clock and staying within the tight budgets established in the first episode. Among the teams this season are Rob Frisbee & Brennan Swain, Frank & Margarita Mesa, Bill Bartek & Joe Baldassare, Drew Feinberg & Kevin O'Connor, Nancy & Emily Hoyt, Lenny Hudson & Karyn Jefferson, Paul Alessi & Amie Barsky, and David & Margaretta Groark. The first leg of the race takes the teams from New York to South Africa, thence through France, Tunisia, the Sahara, Italy, England, India, Thailand, China, and Alaska. In episode nine, the couple who seem to be the "sure winners" are eliminated for deliberately avoiding one of their physical tasks. Without revealing any more, it can be noted that the first team to arrive at the final pit stop in Flushing Meadows, NY -- and, in so doing, winning the million-dollar grand prize -- consists of two males. ~ Hal Erickson
