Amazing Race - Season 32

Tuesday night, Sharon and I finished watching season thirty-two of the Amazing Race. With a passion for traveling, I have enjoyed watching the Amazing Race over the last few years.

Season thirty-two featured 11 teams of two in a race around the world. It premiered on October 14, 2020 and completed its broadcast run on December 14, 2020.  It was originally filmed in November and December of 2018. This cast included former Carolina Panthers players DeAngelo Williams and Gary Barnidge, Olympic hurdlers Kellie Wells-Brinkley and LaVonne Idlette, professional volleyball player Riley McKibbin, college basketball coach Jerry Eaves and America's Next Top Model Season 21 runner-up Will Jardell.

The legs of the race inluded:
  • Leg 1 (Los Angeles → Trinidad and Tobago)
  • Leg 2 (Trinidad and Tobago → Colombia)
  • Leg 3 (Colombia → Brazil)
  • Leg 4 (Brazil → Paraguay)
  • Leg 5 (Paraguay → France)
  • Leg 6 (France → Germany, Berlin)
  • Leg 7 (Germany, Berlin → Kazakhstan)
  • Leg 8 (Kazakhstan → India, Hyderabad)
  • Leg 9 (India, Hyderabad → Cambodia)
  • Leg 10 (Cambodia → The Philippines, Manila)
  • Leg 11 (The Philippines, Manila → New Orleans)
Sharon and I spent two weeks in the Philippines and in and around Manila in 2003. While we experienced the horrific traffic, I didn't recognize any of the places in Manila that the teams visited. Looking at a map, several of the sites were very close to the historic center of the city and the golf course where we were.

I continue to enjoy this show. We will probably go back and a couple more of the old seasons, particularly the seasons with Rob and Amber.

Season 33 started production on Feb. 22, 2020. Due to the global pandemic, CBS halted production after filming three episodes and making stops in England and Scotland.
