THE AMAZING RACE They Don't Call It the Amazing Race for Nothin''' Season 17, Episode 1-And they're off! In the They Don't Call it The Amazing Race for Nothin''' 17th season premiere episode of THE AMAZING RACE, we meet the teams, watch them go from Gloucester, Massachusetts to the English countryside, and learn about a new wrinkle, the express pass.
The racing field is its usual mix, just with more beauty queens. We have Andie and Jenna, a birth mother and daughter who have only recently found each other; Gary and Mallory are father and daughter; Michael and Kevin are father and son; Brook and Clair are home shopping hosts who will never eat watermelon again; Connor and Jonathan are acapella singing buddies buddies from Princeton University; Nat and Kat are friends and doctors; Katie and Rachel are friends and volleyball players; Ron and Tony are best friends with very different jobs-Ron is a director and choreographer who appeared in Newsies while Tony is a doctoral student; and Nick and Vicki, Chad and Stephanie, and Jill and Thomas are all dating couples.
The teams are brought to the Gloucester starting line on lobster boats and then learn that the winning team will get an express pass, which can be used to skip any challenge in the race up until the eighth leg. That's huge.
