Show Synopsis: "The Amazing Race 2" follows the real-life adventures of 11 teams of two as they race across the planet in their attempt to gain first place over win the prize. This is another one-hour long "reality TV" offering from CBS.
Overall, this first episode appears to be quite tame and non-offensive. The teams of two are mostly likable and feel like they could be your next door neighbors (from all over the U.S.). Teams include a husband & wife who are both pastors, a set of brothers, a set of sisters, a brother & sister combo, another husband & wife, a separated couple hoping to renew their relationship, best friends since childhood, two grandmothers, a mother & daughter, and others.
The first episode had the teams being dropped off in the Nevada desert by helicopter, where they had to figure out where they were and made their way to the Las Vegas airport for the next leg of their journey: Rio. We also follow the teams as they make their way to Rio and accomplish several different tasks to complete their time in Brazil.
Teams occasionally display their bad attitudes, perhaps showing antagonism toward each other or other players.
