TAR 20 Group Large

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 ...
