Each team comprises two people who have a pre-existing relationship with each other, with married couples, siblings, and parents and children having been confirmed for the 2022 cast.

At every destination, each team will compete in a series of challenges and when the tasks have been completed, they will learn where their next stop is.

The teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, and the first team to arrive at the final destination will win at least $1 million.

This new season is set to premiere on Wednesday and, for the first time in The Amazing Race history, the starting line is outside the United States, with contestants beginning their journey in Munich, Germany.
