Best Reality shows: The Amazing Race

Network it airs on: CBS

Years it’s aired: 2001 to present

What it’s about: Teams of two get the chance to compete against each other in races around the world. This isn’t just about being the fastest in terms of running, but it’s about completing various challenges and puzzles the fastest.

While there’s a race element to it, there is also a teamwork element to it. The teams of two know each other. They’re sisters, brothers, best friends, parents and children, spouses, and much more. Can they work together to know out the competition?

Why it’s one of the greatest: There are so many types of reality TV shows out there. A lot of them involve individuals competing against each other, but still needing to work as a team. What happens when you have teams that work together throughout the competition but have to work against other teams? The Amazing Race offers that.

We get to watch the different strategies of the teams. We can see how the pressures can take their toll on the teams, people who have known each other for years. And naturally, we get our favorites that we root from throughout the competition. Just how well would you do if you took part?
