Amazing Race 17 Premiere 2010- Watch Amazing Race Season 17 Episode 1 Online S17E01 – The Amazing Race Season 17 Episode 1 called “They Don’t Call It The Amazing Race For Nothin!” aired this evening on CBS.
Entering its 17th season, “The Amazing Race” started the season with a 90 minute premiere episode with an intriguing trip from United States to England. The show,as in previous seasons, had two players per team, as they race across the glove from one location to another that will be named each week. This season should be especially excited, based on a number of clips that have been released online.
This will be the first time that the teams have to race across the arctic circle at some point over the course of the season. Hopefully all of the contestants brought their best coats.
The first episode can always be a little bit hard to judge because you do not know the teams yet, how they work together, or even that much about the people that are on the teams. The producers do a good job of trying to introduce us to the characters as much as they can in the first episode, but they still would like to make sure that they give us enough action to keep us coming back.
Among the teams will be Chad and Stephanie, a couple that just started dating and do not know each other that well. Keep your eyes on them because it will be hard for them to work together having not known each other for that long. Another team, Michael and Kevin, is a father and son tandem from Texas that are avid fans of the show. It will be interesting to see how they can use the lessons that they learned from watching the previous seasons to help them quickly advance from one location to another here in the 17th season.
In “They Don’t Call It The Amazing Race For Nothin!” the contestants had their first Roadblock where they were asked to race to go horseback riding to a tournament area and use a giant slingshot to launch a watermelon towards a suit of armor standing 50 feet away.
Later on they were asked to climb a ladder while peasants poured dirty water on them.
Best friends Ron & Tony were eliminated while Jill & Thomas were declared the victors.
