    The Amazing Race: 12 sends eleven teams on a 30,000 mile quest covering five countries never before visited on the Race, including Ireland, Lithuania and Croatia. Testing the Racers' physical wherewithal, they bike ride in Ireland on a high-wire 200 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, pole-vault over a stream in Holland and attempt to milk several stubborn camels. This pushes the Racers' patience to the brink - they realize that this is not for the faint-of-heart. The Racers must also contend with lost taxi drivers, depleted resources and most of all, each other.

    Challenge after challenge, the Racers risk life and limb for a chance at the $1,000,000 grand prize. This season's 11 Teams include a grandfather & grandson, married lesbian ministers, and dating Goths. Some teams are burdened by the Race's grueling physical demands, while others give in to their emotional roller-coaster ride and break their composure during the Race. To win this race, teams cannot rely solely on their athleticism: one challenge forces Racers to impress the local judges in Burkina Faso with their dance moves, while another challenge coerces a team to contemplate making permanent changes to their bodies in order to further their position in the Race. Teams must battle the elements, wildlife, and each other to attain glory and win the $1,000,000.

    THEN, The Emmy-award-winning reality adventure returns with THE AMAZING RACE Season 13. Eleven Teams cover 30,000 miles across five continents in approximately 30 days. The cast showcases diverse couples: long-married beekeepers; a separated couple looking to rebuild their marriage; joke-cracking fraternity brothers described by rival teams as "Team Superbad"; and two comic book aficionados, one of whom "wears geek as a badge of honor."

    The Race begins in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, they jockey for flights headed to Salvador, Brazil. Stamina and courage are strained during a harrowing detour. Season 13 has Amazing Race firsts: a real-life water world where its inhabitants live on a floating city and places such as Cambodia and Kazakhstan are explored. The teams square off against Bolivian wrestlers and one team's mistake prohibits them from joining their fellow Racers at the finish line. The pressure ratchets, slip-ups like misreading clues to blindly following competitors become a burden. Moral and ethical standards are challenged when one team gets in trouble with the law, while a Racer lies at one of the most religious places on Earth. As the finish line approaches, Teams disregard the blurry line between right and wrong, focusing instead on the $1,000,000! Watch the adventure unfold on The Amazing Race: 13 on DVD!
CBS and the Amazon CreateSpace MOD (manufacture on demand) program are working on bringing out DVD releases of The Amazing Race - The 12th Season (the summer 2007 contest which introduced the U-Turn and the Speed Bump elements to the game!) and The Amazing Race - The 13th Season (which aired in spring 2008) as well. Priced at $34.95 SRP each, the cover art (along with an Amazon pre-order button link) can be found below. However, a release date hasn't been finalized yet, and so Amazon merely says that "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives." The special features on both of these 3-disc sets consists of "Elimination Stations," to accompany each season's 11-episode race. Our thanks to reader Jeff Shick for the heads-up about these items! Stay tuned for that availability date.
