Editorial Reviews

On your mark, get set, and go for Emmy-Award winning Amazing Race's sixth season on DVD. Passports in hand, eleven teams race across the globe from Senegal to Sri Lanka. The colorful cast includes a pair of grandparents, married professional wrestlers, and engaged models.

The teams adventure though everything from Viking Villages to glacial lagoons, persevering through the elements and cultural shock towards the ultimate cash prize. Only in a show as unpredictable as THE AMAZING RACE could a Chicago deep dish pizza be the difference between first and last, and when it comes down to the finish line, it is one of the closest races in the history of the game. Find out who crosses first in this special edition DVD set.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

For the first few episodes, I really didn't like TAR6 at all. It was by far my least favourite at the time and all the bickering couples (particularly from Jonathan) mixed with all the non-couples being elminated pretty quickly really wasn't doing it for me. However, around episode 4/5 I learnt to get over that and once you stop taking the season too seriously you really learn to enjoy it. As a matter of fact, most of the bickering had me in stitches towards the end and I ended up warming to a lot more of the endgame couples than I thought I would. So overall, it ended up leveling out for me as a top tier season and one I wouldn't pass up watching again. So glad to finally be having the first 7 seasons on DVD. Keep them coming!

I've seen every episode of this series and think this is one of the rare reality shows with true value.

The thing I love most about the show are the locations. It is the next best thing to traveling the world myself. Not only do I get to see multiple and varied locales, including many that I will likely never get to travel to myself, but the show producers also do a great job of finding the most unique adventures to complete in each area. I've learned more about world geography and different cultures than I ever learned in any classroom.

It's also interesting to watch the interpersonal dynamics between teammates and between teams. I'd be lying if I didn't admit to finding the conflicts entertaining . . . and the stress of travel and competition does bring it out. But I always root for the teams that are nicest to each other.

And it's rewarding to see how the intensity of the race truly brings teammates closer together by forcing them to work together and rely on one another.

That would make an average of 4.5, but since I can't give that rating, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and give it a full 5.

This is one of my favorite seasons of Amazing Race, and I was stoked when I found out it was getting a DVD release. Overall this may be one of the most fun casts that the show has ever had (even if it does have terrible Jonathan). It also features some of my favorite challenges and one of the most fun race routes.

The set itself is a little disappointing for what it's worth. I'm glad that it comes in a regular-sized case to save shelf-space, but I'm a little disappointed that quality was sacrificed for having the season spread over a smaller number of discs. It's 13 episodes, 11 of which are 42 minutes and first and last episodes being 80 minutes each, on a mere three discs. Personally I would have been happier with four discs, with the extra space used to increase quality. The Survivor seasons are spread over five discs and have higher quality video/audio. I can't complain too much though, since just two years ago the possibility of this season getting any sort of home media release was practically nonexistent, so I'm thankful that it actually even got released.

The chances of this season ever getting a mass-retail release are practically zero, so if you're a fan of the season, this is your best bet. The prices on these sets fluctuate all the time, so wait for a price on this that catches your eye and jump at the chance. If you are an Amazing Race fan and you missed this season, I would highly recommend it. If you love the season like me, this is a must buy.

I decided to buy this season since I love The Amazing Race and wanted to watch a season I had never seen.The product is made on-demand which explains why when it came the cover was inserted the wrong way and there were no bonus features.But all in all,it ran fine in my DVD player.Having never seen this season,I did not know what to expect.There were a lot of couples,dating or married,which adds up to a lot of fighting and good drama for the show.Be forewarned that you will hate Jonathan.The guy is verbally and at times physically abusive to his wife.It's hard to watch that.Also,another contestant that I did not like was Kendra.Look up the word snob in a dictionary and her name is under it.Your jaw will drop when you hear some of the things she says about the places they are visiting.It's an embarrassment.Other wise I enjoyed this season.I couldn't stop watching and I'd recommend it to anyone.

This is such a good season. I'll skip over what the show is about. If you've seen any of the seasons, then you know what this is about. It had a lot of interesting couples and nice challenges.

I really disliked Jonathan. He was abusive- emotional, verbally, and physical against Victoria. He's the only low point in the season.

If you have someone in your life that loved The Amazing Race, then this is a must have for them.

I've always remembered Johnatan & Victoria as the loud couple, they always had to do something to get attention and boy did they had it. The dvd in general was a bit scrathed and it skipped some parts, it is not as good quality as the ones from seasons 1 & 7.
