There’s nothing quite like travelling the world from the comfort of our own couches, watching interesting people do crazy things. OK, I take that back — nothing beats real travel but for those staying put in Australia for the next few months, The Amazing Race Australia is back for another season of entertaining characters and challenges. This time the show promises to be “longer, tougher and even more challenging,” and it’s introducing Must Vote U-Turns and a “controversial” Salvage Pass in the very first leg. Grant Bowler also returns as host. Get to know the new line-up of Racers competing for $250,000 — among them are siblings, blonde cheerleaders, and a contestant born without a left forearm.
The Amazing Race Australia premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on Channel Seven.
