The Amazing Race kicked off Season 20 with what Phil Keoghan called the "most bizarre Pit Stop." On Sunday (8/7c, CBS), the season will close with the series' "biggest shocker ever." For the first time, the team who arrives first at the finish line will be turned around for not completing a task correctly. "We were shocked as the viewers are gonna be," Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "We were like, 'What just happened?' ... I couldn't believe it happened. Never have we had to tell the team that comes in first that they didn't win the $1 million. But it's good to know we can still have firsts 20 seasons in!" Of course, that team still has a chance to win if they can rectify their mistake at the Roadblock before the next team arrives.
So which team — married couple Dave and Rachel, Big Brother's Brendon and Rachel, border patrol agents Art and JJ, or dating divorcees Vanessa and Ralph — makes the potentially fatal error?

There was no missing passport drama on the Season 20 premiere of The Amazing Race, but the final minutes served up what Phil Keoghan calls the "most bizarre Pit Stop we've ever had."
ABC kept promoting Mark Burnett's Expedition Impossible as an adventure unlike anything we've ever seen.

Race awards a $1 million prize; Expedition offers a $150,000 purse and a ...

16. Most Self-Aware Reality-Show Judge: Showing she does have a sense of humor about herself, Christina Aguilera injects a little levity into a coaching session with battle-round opponents Frenchie Davis and Tarralyn Ramsey on The Voice. "Don't worry about the words! I never worry about the words!" she laughs, referring to her National Anthem debacle. Can't wait to hear what she has to say about her night behind bars...
To say the Rio leg on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business was not made for Zev Glassenberg and Justin Kanew would be an understatement. First, Zev and his "white boy rhythm" clashed with the samba Roadblock and then the best friends — the hairiest team of all — had to endure even more cruel and unusual punishment: waxing. "I don't know if the leg was designed to torture us, but it certainly did do that," Justin tells TVGuide.com. "We're going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn't throw that waxing thing in there when they saw that we were in the final four." Still, there are no hard feelings — just a little bleeding — since "the Race doesn't decide how hairy we are."
