The Amazing Race: All-Stars (2007) is the eleventh season of the reality television show, The Amazing Race. It premiered on February 18, 2007 and ran through May 6, 2007 on CBS. This season was the first to feature teams who appeared on a previous season.

Development

Despite skepticism from host Phil Keoghan initially, CBS moved forward with an all-star edition in November 2006. [1] Teams from all previous seasons (except Family Edition) were considered.[2] Casting was criticized in some corners for not picking more than one winner team.[3] The exclusion of Season 4's Jon & Al (aka "The Clowns") also came as a big surprise,[4] even to Season 7 winners Uchenna & Joyce.[5]

Filming began on November 20, 2006 and finished on December 17, 2006. This season traveled a total of 45,000 miles (72,000 km) across 9 countries in five continents.

Travelocity provided prizes throughout the race to winning teams on ever leg (except the finale).

As part of a sponsorship deal with CBS, Thermacare selected certain packages of heat wraps to contain a mini-DVD is titled Re-run the Race that would feature highlights from the first ten seasons.[6] In addition, Thermacare also ran an ad each week called "The Amazing Race All-Stars Moment of Relief" which highlighted memorable moments from previous seasons.

Notes
1: Dustin & Kandice initially arrived 4th, but they had missed the clue to the Detour, having simply arrived by chance at one of the options (finished the detour). They were forced to backtrack and retrieve the missed clue at the end of the Detour and return to the Pit Stop. This did not affect their placement.
2: Uchenna & Joyce initially arrived 3rd, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving 1st. This did not affect their placement.
3: Two legs contained unaired Roadblocks. It is only known that Danielle completed the one in Leg 7. Images from CBS' official website show Mirna and Danielle completing the one in leg 13.
4: Due to an Intersection, Uchenna & Joyce and Oswald & Danny were able to work together to complete the Fast Forward, thus both teams were able to skip all remaining tasks and head directly to the Pit Stop and awarded 1st for both teams.
5: Joe & Bill initially arrived 5th, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving 1st. During this time, Eric & Danielle - the only team trailing Joe & Bill at that point - were able to check in shortly after Joe & Bill arrived and were eliminated before the 30 minutes elapsed.
6: Uchenna & Joyce missed a connecting flight early in Leg 9 and were not shown performing any of the tasks; they were shown proceeding from the Batu Caves Route Marker directly to the Pit Stop for elimination. Joyce confirmed in a post-race interview that she had done the newspaper recycling Roadblock prior to being eliminated.
7: Eric & Danielle initially arrived 2nd, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for being "marked for elimination" and not arriving 1st. With approximately 14 minutes left of their penalty time, Charla & Mirna checked in during their penalty time, dropping them to 3rd.
8: Oswald & Danny had been "marked for elimination", however, since they checked in last, they were eliminated without the 30-minute penalty.
