THE AMAZING RACE is a seven-time Emmy Award-winning adventure reality series hosted by Emmy-nominated host, Phil Keoghan, which pits teams, of two, against each other on a trek around the world. At every destination, each team will have to compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

Survivor's Nadiya on Her Early Ouster: The Amazing Race Came Back to Haunt Me

Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water kicked things off with a blindside on Wednesday's premiere, when Nadiya Anderson — one half ofAmazing Race alums The Twinnies — was unexpectedly ousted by her tribe.

Along with her twin sister Natalie, Nadiya competed on The Amazing Racetwice. In Season 21, the love-'em-or-hate-'em Sri Lankan pair came in 4th place, and in the 2014 All-Star season they were the first team to go home.

Jeff Probst teases Survivor's "unorthodox" Season 29

With Nadiya's tribemates aware of her (at times ruthless) approach to reality competitions, they decided to eliminate her as a threat at the first chance they got.

"It was just such a shock to me that this Amazing Race stuff haunted me so much," Nadiya tells TVGuide.com. "I got eliminated for something that had nothing to do with Survivor, and that sucks."

Jeff Probst Teases "Unorthodox" Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water

For its 29th season (Wednesday, 8/7c, CBS), Survivor is reviving its Blood vs. Water theme — in which loved ones compete against each other. This time, however, all the players are new to Survivor, as opposed to in Season 27, when "Blood vs. Water" made its debut.

"Blood vs. water had such a positive response from the audience that we fell in love with the idea and decided, let's just do it again and let's twist it and not bring any returning players back, and see what that does to the dynamic," host Jeff Probst tells TVGuide.com. "And it definitely shifted it. People came in out of the gate saying, let's let loved ones dominate this game and try to get as deep as we can with as many pairs. So right from the beginning there was a new strategy."

Question: I'm wondering what you think about the scheduling of ABC's Thursday night programming. I don't even KNOW if there's a Family Hour any more, but it seems to me that Scandal is pretty heavy on the sex and violence and may not work so well at the 8 pm (Central) hour. Do you see ABC getting complaints about it and possibly switching Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder? — Jan

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.
