While SABC3 lags behind on Season 16
of The Amazing Race
, SONY premieres the 20th season
this Sunday night (31 March) at 19h35.
Not that it's the very latest season either of course - as per usual SONY's racing behind-the-times too because Season 22's already airing in America. Still, at least Season 20's only a year old instead of an entire generation - it aired in the US in February last year and features 11 teams who set off from Santa Barbara to Argentina as a first stop.
Here's a snack pack of the teams to tuck into ... as you'll see, it includes links to each racer's individual profile which opens in a separate window so you stay on this page while finding out more about each of them.
Each profile includes a Q&A with them - I found the most revealing answers were inspired by the questions about famous people and pet peeves. See if you agree ...
