After an extremely exciting and successful first season, The Amazing Race Australia is back with a new batch of teams that will go to any lengths to win the competition.
And if you thought the first Race was gruelling, wait till you see what’s in store for the eleven Aussie teams who will compete in the second instance of everybody’s favourite adventure reality show.
The teams will have to travel more than 65,000 kilometres across four continents and conquer some of the toughest challenges ever conceived in the history of the show for their chance to win the $250,000 prize.
Needless to say, their journey will include a mix of iconic sites and surprising destinations never seen on any version of the race.
So, without further adieu, let us introduce the lucky Aussies who will get to compete in the second season of The Amazing Race Australia.Adam and Dane
