Canada’s most-watched reality series is back with another batch of 11 teams, including hockey player brothers, one of which is former Toronto Maple Leafs player Bates Battaglia, who will embark on a sprint around the globe on THE AMAZING RACE! Season 22 of the perennial smash hit series premieres Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). Following its television broadcast, viewers can also catch up on full episodes of THE AMAZING RACE across CTV’s digital platforms on CTV.ca, the CTV App, CTV Mobile available on Bell Mobile TV, and through video on demand partners. THE AMAZING RACE is Canada’s #1 reality series and Canada’s #3 most-watched program with an average audience of 2.7 million viewers. This season of the multi-Emmy® Award-winning series introduces a new twist to the game in which the first Team to check in at the first pit stop earns two “Express Passes” – one to keep for themselves and one that must be given to another Team by the end of the fourth leg of the Race.

Traveling more than 30,000 miles, over five continents and through nine countries, Teams skydive from 10,000 feet in Bora Bora, participate in a Shemozzle race in New Zealand, hunt for scorpions with the Bushmen of Botswana, and scale the treacherous north face of the Eiger Mountain in Switzerland.

This season also welcomes a diverse cast which includes former professional hockey player and former Toronto Maple Leafs player Bates Battaglia and his hockey playing brother, twin brothers who are both OB/GYNs, father/son cancer survivors, Southern firefighters, roller derby moms, and female country singers..

THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world. Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another. At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges – some mental and some physical – and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination. Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning at least $1 million.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri, and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
