Amazing Race 3
What If Our Parachute Doesn't Open?
“This race is even more intense than usual,” says host Phil Keoghan of the reality series' third edition, which begins in Miami. “We've upped the ante a little bit in terms of what they have to deal with mentally and physically.” One of the race's biggest challenges occurs at the start: The 12 groups of two---who are friends, couples or relatives---land in Mexico City and must go skydiving if they want a chance to get ahead of the pack. (The alternative? Participate in a donkey-cart race.) The circumnavigation of the globe occurs over 30 days, ends with a $1 million prize and covers 41,000 miles. “Hard miles,” says Keoghan. “And the teams feel every one of them. We burnt out.”
Contestant - (ripping open envelope like a gift on Christmas day) Detour!
Phil - A detour is a choice between two tasks...
In GERONIMO, the teams will have to go to this air strip and sky dive from 3000 feet in the air.
In BURRO, the teams will have to go to this stadium and participate in a donkey race.
