Amazing Race All-Stars
Eleven teams are set to take to the starting line again on The Amazing Race All-Stars (Sunday, 8/7c, CBS) — key word being "set."
For the first time, one team will be prohibited from going on the Race. "After a thorough examination, our doctor determined that one team is not capable of going because of a medical concern that we had about one team member," host Phil Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "The emotion at the start of this Race is unlike any that we've ever had before. I have to break the news to everyone else. It's obviously devastating and affects not only that team and the other teams, who realize that suddenly there's this major change. This is absolutely the most dramatic thing that's ever happened. It's gut-wrenching. It broadsided us."

Nevertheless, 11 teams will still take off around the ...
Caroline and Jennifer
Caroline and Jennifer got, uh, bogged down on The Amazing Race finale when Jen needed three attempts to swim across a freezing, muddy bog in Belfast, Northern Ireland. "That was such a stressful day for us," she tells TVGuide.com. "If I had gotten it right the first time, I would've been OK. But getting in the second time, I just felt claustrophobic." Worse, the country singers got lost afterward and in the end, it wasn't a close finish for the final finale spot at all. Find out how much time they lost, what song they've written for Bates and Anthony and if a flying squirrel really died in Caroline's bra.
Mona and Beth
If there's one thing Mona and Beth did a lot of on the two-hour Amazing Race finale, it was running. After messing up the Titanic serving Detour more than 10 times in the penultimate leg, the roller derby moms mistakenly went to the White House and then ran all the way around Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. "That was our theme the whole season," Beth tells TVGuide.com. "We like to get lost and do extra running. ... I read on a fan forum that they call it 'killer fatigue' and we had it. I didn't realize it until it happened, but you really are running on fumes for days and days. The physical stuff wasn't bad for us, but you almost got tunnel vision and aren't thinking properly." Keep reading to see what else they have to say about their navigation problems, why they thought they were going to the White House and more.
Max and Katie
Newlyweds Max and Katie had won the past three legs on The Amazing Race 22 and looked like they might make it a fourth straight victory on the final leg. But then came the spy Switchback Roadblock. Despite getting there first, Max had trouble locating his spy and completed the task third, but the two were able to recover for a second-place finish. "It was hard to watch. We loved watching the first half [of the two-hour finale]," he tells TVGuide.com. "I wish we had a week to enjoy that victory instead of just slamming the door on it. But it was fun. We'd been dreading watching D.C. since we did it." Find out how much time they lost at the challenge, if they think of themselves as villains and more.
Bates and Anthony
What started as a neck-and-neck battle turned into a clean victory for hockey brothers Bates and Anthony on The Amazing Race 22 finale. After arriving to the spy Roadblock in Washington, D.C., second, they completed it first and never relinquished their lead — even leaving the final task before any other team had gotten there. "We knew we were first," Bates tells TVGuide.com. "And that's an awesome feeling to have on the last leg, knowing that you're going to win." So what are they going to do with their $1 million? And what's really going on between them and Caroline and Jennifer? Find out below.

[SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals the winners of The Amazing Race 22. Read at your own risk.]
It's hard to top Josh and Brent's shocking win last season, but Phil Keoghan promises that Sunday's Amazing Race finale will be another tight one. "It's very close," he tells TVGuide.com. "It will keep viewers absolutely guessing until the end who's going to win. It's not one of those finales where one team has been in the lead the whole time." The two-hour finale (8/7c, CBS) finds hockey players Bates and Anthony, newlyweds Max and Katie, country singers Caroline and Jennifer, and roller derby moms Mona and Beth racing through Belfast, Ireland, where one team will be eliminated, and then Washington, D.C. for the final leg.
Find out what else you can expect from the episode, why Keoghan's still saying "oy vey" about John and Jessica's Express Pass fail and more.
Joey and Meghan
Joey and Meghan have no one to blame but themselves for their Amazing Race elimination. The YouTube hosts failed to check for earlier flights to Scotland and found themselves racing for last against Mona and Beth. Adding insult to injury, both teams were U-Turned, and Joey and Meghan became the first team to be U-Turned twice in a season. "We finally thought that we had gotten ahead, but it was our fault for not being more thorough with the flights," Meghan tells TVGuide.com. So why didn't they double-check? And would they have U-Turned a team as far back as they were?
