Nine days ago we reported that the 22nd and 23rd seasons of the show were finally available to own, on both DVD and Blu-ray Disc formats, after almost a year's wait since it was made known that they were in-the-works as MOD (manufacture on demand) titles. In the just-over-a-week since that news, CBS DVD has also released FOUR more seasons of Amazing Race through Amazon's CreateSpace MOD program. Our thanks to reader Gary Chase for the heads-up! Each 3-disc set is priced at $34.99 SRP for DVD format, and $39.99 SRP for Blu-ray format. Here's what is now available:
  • The Amazing Race - The 24th Season: All-Stars...DVD or Blu-ray:
      "The Amazing Race" All-Star Edition features eleven two-person teams competing for $1 million dollars. The 24th season of this Emmy-award winning series has members returning from previous amazing expeditions.

      Trekking 23,000 miles across three continents, nine countries and 22 cities, the teams are challenged to perform various feats that test agility, strength and courage. In China, they brave somersaults while suspended 300 feet in the air off a tower; in Rome they battle a seasoned gladiator; in the Swiss alps, teams deliver milk by means of a Bernese Mountain Dog; and in London, face off for penalty kicks against a professional goalkeeper. In addition, while racing through Las Vegas during the final leg of the race, the remaining teams must master the art of magic, as challenged by illusionist David Copperfield.

      Each team, including a father and son, mother and son, Harlem Globetrotters and a pair of YouTube hosts, were selected to return to "The Amazing Race" for a second -- and some cases third time. The 24th installment of the reality series aired in Spring 2014. "The Amazing Race" has earned ten Outstanding Reality-Competition Primetime Emmys.

  • The Amazing Race - The 25th Season...DVD or Blu-ray:
      Eleven two-person teams compete for $1 million dollars in the 25th season of "The Amazing Race." With fans cheering in support from the sidelines, New York City's Times Square serves as the starting line in the Race as the teams continue on to traverse 26,000 miles across eight countries, including first-time visits to the United States Virgin Islands, Malta and the Shetland Islands of Scotland.

      Along the way, the racers face varied challenges including learning the complex steps of Changing of the Guard for the English Court; working like Shetland Sheepdogs and shepherding sheep through an obstacle course; rappelling down Malta's Blue Grotto; and tightrope walking between towers of a high-rise Singapore hotel. During the season, teams compete in the 300th leg of the series, driving a go-kart around Sicily's Mount Pellegrino, in an ode to the world's oldest sports car racing event.

      The teams include married pro surfers Bethany Hamilton, a shark attack survivor, and Adam Dirks; wrestling stars Brooke Adams and Robbie E; as well as "Survivor: South Pacific" contestants Whitney Duncan and Keith Tollesfson. The season also introduces a new immunity called "The Save," awarded to those coming in first in the first leg of the race. The winning team could use it before Leg 9, if they came in last place on an elimination leg. The 25th installment of the reality series aired in Fall 2014. "The Amazing Race" has earned 10 Outstanding Reality Competition Program Emmys.

  • The Amazing Race - The 26th Season...DVD or Blu-ray:
      For the first time in "The Amazing Race" history, each team was comprised of a dating couple. The teams included six sets of partners, dating from seven months to 10 years, and five "blind date" teams, who met for the first time at the start of the race. Couples included Olympic winners Aly Dudek (short track speed skater) and Steven Langton (bobsled), as well as New Kids on the Block's Jonathan Knight and his boyfriend Harley Rodriguez.

      Kicking off outside Los Angeles, the Race stretched through five continents and nine countries, including Japan, Thailand, Germany, Monaco, Namibia, France, The Netherlands and Peru. Along the way, the racers faced distinctive challenges unique to each country and region, including some with romantic gestures. At a restaurant in Thailand, teams were tasked to deliver meals via zipline, with no spills! In Germany, teams had to learn a Bavarian love song and serenade their partner while perched on a ladder. In Namibia, the couples had to build a traditional hut using wooden sticks and dried grass.

      The season also introduced the "Date Night," a ticket awarded to one team who retrieves a special clue for each leg, thus earning them a one-and-one romantic-related activity. The 26th installment of the reality series aired in Spring 2015. "The Amazing Race" has earned 10 Outstanding Reality-Competition Primetime Emmys.

  • The Amazing Race - The 27th Season...DVD or Blu-ray:
      For the second time in the series history, audiences were invited to cheer on the Racers at the Starting Line - Venice Beach, California. The teams continued to traverse 34,000 miles across 10 countries including a first time visit to Zimbabwe. From Rio De Janeiro to Paris, Krakow and Macau, among other destinations, the racers faced various challenges, including: free-fall 200 feet into the Batoka Gorge to swing above the Zambezi River; submerged in a metal cage to feed Nile crocodiles; and learn a musical piece and perform a duet in Krakow's Main Square.

      In an ode to New York City firefighters, upon returning to the United States, a team member donned a firefighter's uniform in an ultimate exercise of rescuing a victim from a burning building. The 27th season, which aired in Fall 2015, was the first to see two roadblocks and a detour used in one leg. "The Amazing Race" has earned 10 Outstanding Reality-Competition Primetime Emmys.
