The Amazing Race: All-Stars (2014) is the twenty-fourth installment of the reality television series, The Amazing Race. The series was renewed on March 27, 2013 for the 2013–14 TV season. This is the second season to have All-Stars subtitle (Season 11 was the first) and the third to feature players from different seasons. This season premiered on February 23, 2014.

Development

The season began filming on November 16, 2013. The 24th edition was decided to be another returnee season featuring eleven returning teams from past seasons (only post Season 13 though), including seven contestants competing for the third time. The season's introduction bumper did not include the intro caps for all the teams as previous seasons did.

Filming was marred by several production issues. Season 20 contestant Bopper of Bopper & Mark began showing signs of pancreatitis before arriving in Los Angeles for filming and was deemed unfit to compete by the production's medical team upon arrival. To make the last minute adjustment, Mallory of Gary & Mallory was invited to be Bopper's replacement. Bopper & Mark were advertised as a team, with Bopper's replacement intended to be aired as a surprise twist. However, this was leaked well before the premiere.

The season traveled through three continents, seven nations (the lowest excluding Family Edition), and 22 cities, spanning a distance of 23,000 miles (37,000 km)

Notes:
1: Several teams got time credit due to production errors and left the pit start of the second leg in a different order than their placements in the previous leg. Margie & Luke departed 3rd, Dave & Connor departed 4th, Joey & Meghan departed 8th, Jessica & John departed 9th and Caroline & Jennifer departed 10th.
2: Jet & Cord decided to give their other Express Pass to Caroline & Jennifer in Leg 2. Caroline & Jennifer later used it to bypass the Roadblock in the same leg.
3: Due to being so far behind the other teams, Margie & Luke did not perform any of the tasks on this leg.[13]
4: Jet & Cord used their Express Pass to elude the Detour.
5: Caroline & Jennifer attempted to U-Turn Brendon & Rachel. However, Brendon & Rachel had already passed the U-Turn Point, and were unaffected.

    • I think they should bring back the green team from TAR 27, along with the cheerleaders. Also, I think team fun from TAR29 should come back.
