What It's Really Like To Compete On 'The Amazing Race'

Running across the scorching plains of Africa, bolting down the steep steps of Shanghai, and diving straight into synchronized swimming routines with Olympic athletes in Moscow: these are only a few of the challenges teams in The Amazing Race might encounter while competing on the show. While home viewers get the "traveling alongside" view and see all the wild legwork racers do, they never witness what goes on behind the scenes of The Amazing Race.

Competitors and producers leave the show with epic stories about what it's like working on The Amazing Race, exposing secrets the cameras conveniently never catch. The Amazing Race fun facts and personal stories unfold to tell the audience what really happens during those three arduous weeks racers spend on the hit CBS reality competition. The challenges may be fun, inadvertently land competitors behind bars, or result in a person breaking multiple limbs. You just never know how The Amazing Race will unfold.
