Episode Detail: I'm Sick of Doing Stuff I Can't Do - The Amazing Race: Family Edition

The six teams travel from Panama to Costa Rica and receive a clue at Volcan Poas, a 1000-ft. deep active volcano. Next, the teams visit a coffee plantation where one family member searches for a single red bean in an 800-lb. mound of coffee beans. One family is yielded at the roadblock. The town of Jaco is the next stop. There, teams choose between finding relics in a rainforest or hauling bananas to a distribution center before heading to the pit stop at Quepos. Phil Keoghan is the host.

Premise: Ten teams, each comprised of four family members, embark on an 11,000-mile race that begins beneath New York's Brooklyn Bridge before heading through the U.S. South, Central America and Canada. The `Family Edition' is the Emmy-winning series' eighth edition and it marks the first time in which team members are all related. It also almost doubles the size of the show's usual participants, from 22 to 40. One thing that remains the same is the grand prize: $1 million.
