The Amazing Race Spoilers – When In Germany!
Due to COVID, teams flew to Munich, Germany by a chartered airline. When they were on their way to the starting line for the 34th season of The Amazing Race, they had no idea where they were going.
Descending a water flume, being seated on a log has been the highlight of Oktoberfest for many decades. And this season, the twelve teams go on a ride of their life in a very large log flume ride. Derek, one of the racers can be heard shouting “are there no seatbelts,” as they plunge downwards.

The Amazing Race Updates – A Lot Of Firsts
This is the first time ever they have started outside of the United States. They can complete the challenges on the first leg of the race in any order they want to, it’s called a scramble, and teams are excited. And, for the first time in Amazing Race history, there are no non-elimination legs. If they arrive last, they will be eliminated, they are no second chances, it is do or die. Now, teams can do the challenges in any order they want. Phil tells them that on his go, to grab their backpacks there will be three addresses inside for the challenges. It will be interesting to see what strategy each team uses to make their choice. Will they choose where they are located, close to far? Or, will they choose the difficulty, easy to hard? Definitely adds a little chaos and unpredictability to the race as each team won’t know what the other is doing.
This new twist adds a possibility of a team getting lost, can’t wait for the season to begin!
