The Amazing Race 21 takes over from Survivor on SABC3 on Monday (6 July at 20h30) and it's a high stakes season: teams are racing for a possible 2 million buckaroos instead of 1.

The new twist of the season is that the team who wins the first leg can win double the prize money if they win the very final leg of the race too. Six teams have done this across the series so it's very possible to do.

Here's a close-up on each of the teams that was first published when the season aired on SONY in 2013... it includes links to each racer's individual profile and a Q&A which opens in a separate window:
