Quote :
How would you feel to be set up on a blind date? What about if you and your blind date were about to travel across the globe together on an amazing adventure? Ten singles are about to find out!

The Amazing Race 26, premiering on Wednesday, February 25 at 9:30/8:30c, will match five singles with a partner to race around the world with. These five blind dating pairs will compete against six actual dating couples.

The five duos will see each other for the first time at the starting line of The Amazing Race, right before host Phil Keoghan tells them they can begin the race.

Per usual, Racers this season are extremely diverse in their talents, careers, and hobbies. New Kids on the Block member Jonathan Knight will race with his partner Harley Rodriguez, and Olympic medalists Aly Dudek and Steven Langton will also be racing together. Singles being set up on the blind dates of a lifetime include Lawyers Jelani Roy and Jenny Wu and Navy Physician Blair Townsend and Registered Nurse Hayley Keel.

The Race will have a dirty start — literally — as teams will have to navigate through a muddy obstacle course before jetting to their first location, Tokyo, Japan. The racers will hit five continents and eight countries during this season of the Race, including stops on Bangkok, Namibia, Monaco, and more.

But they won’t only be racing this season. On each leg, one lucky team will pull a clue that includes a “Date Night” ticket. The couple will be able to take advantage of a one-on-one romantic activity, such as a steamy evening at a hot springs in Nagano, Japan, or star-gazing at the Bavarian Public Observatory in Munich, Germany.

After tuning into the premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 9:30/8:30c, travel with the Racers to their usual time slot beginning Friday. Feb 27 at 8/7c.

Will a strong relationship prevail, or will a new relationship blossom? Watch The Amazing Race this season to see what adventures are in store.

I love 90 minute TAR premieres.

The mud run at the start was a nice change of pace.

The U-Turn this early was a killer.  I was hoping for an NEL.

The saki detour was much much much much much easier than the dance detour.  Every team had a lot of trouble with the dance detour.  Detour options should be more even.

Fave couples - Laura/Ty, Jen/Jel, Aly/Steve, Hayley/Blair, Jeff/Lyda

Meh - Kurt/Berg, Ash/Matt, Jackie/Jeff

Trainwreck racers - Har/Jon, CJ/Lib, Mike/Roch
