The globe-trotting reality competition series The Amazing Race gets a new twist in Season 26, as all of the teams embarking on the journey are made up of dating couples, five of whom are on a “blind date.”
It’s Season 26 (!) of The Amazing Race, a show in which all seasons have been exactly like the one that came before it. But in the 90-minute season premiere on CBS Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 9:30pm ET/PT, a dating-show element has been added with 11 teams made up of dating couples: six teams are preexisting couples, and five teams will see their partners meet for the first time at the starting line for a blind date. The series moves to its regular time period on Friday, Feb. 27, at 8pm ET/PT. Phil Keoghan returns as the host.
