The Amazing Race is back for a brand new season with a brand new timeslot and impressive 90-minute episodes. The Emmy-winning competition series sends two-person teams chasing down clever clues and wild challenges all across the world, and this season, all 13 pairs are starting their Amazing Race with a tightrope walk at the Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles. From there, the race heads to Asia, returning to commercial travel post-pandemic. Season 35 will also bring back two big Amazing Race twists: The Express Pass and the U-Turn — both of which are sure to throw a wrench in competitors' grand global plans at some point.
