"The Amazing Race" season 27 is all set to premiere next week on CBS where new teams will embark on another race around the world for the $1 million grand prize.

CBS has revealed the locations for the new season where the teams will be travelling to, including some places where the show has never visited before.

Like the previous seasons, "The Amazing Race" will begin and end in the United States. It will start from Venice Beach, California and will supposedly end in New York.

It will be the first time the show heading to the country of Zimbabwe.

Though it has been to Netherlands before, the show will visit the city of Rotterdam for the very first time too.

Following are the 11 destinations where the teams will visit:

  • Agra, India
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Hong Kong/Macau, China
  • Krakow, Poland
  • Long Island, New York
  • Paris, France
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • San Antonio de Areco, Argentina
  • Victoria Falls, Zambia
  • Batoka Gorge, Zimbabwe

Once the race starts, the teams will head to Rio de Janeiro where a Fast Forwarder could be a big game-changer. They will face other challenges across the world including the tango in Argentina, getting involved with a high-flying water show in China, pairing up with a rapper in France and even free-falling over 200 feet in Zimbabwe and swimming with crocodiles.

The teams for season 27 are already finalised. The teams will be put in situations that will test them physically, mentally and emotionally. They will even encounter crocodiles and lions that will surely get on their nerves.

In the promo video, host Phil Keoghan's voiceover says, "Emotions run high," which is always the case with the show. The video also shows some teams getting frustrated over trying to finish the challenge while others are arguing with each other. One of the women is seen making a hilarious comment saying, "It's a million dollars, I will buy you new feet. Come on, let's go!"

Are you excited about the new season? Which locations you want the teams to visit? Are you curious to experience any of the challenges in the promo video?

"The Amazing Race" season 27 airs on 25 September (Friday) on CBS.
