Premise: An entertaining around-the-world race for $1 million featuring 11 two-member teams. The fun in seeing which team wins is greatly enhanced by watching people deal with the stress of travel and witnessing the effects it has on their relationships. The series won the 2003 Emmy for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, besting heavy favorites `American Idol' and `Survivor.' The surprise win is credited with helping to save the show from cancellation. It won again in 2004.
