The race commenced at Venice Beach and host Phil Keoghan kicked things off. Teasing the interesting shooting locations in the new season, Keoghan said in an interview that "we have not orbited the earth. And also, the moon is looking good right now. Wouldn't it be really cool if we were doing 'The Amazing Race' at a point where teams must now make their way to the moon?"
Joking further about the moon becoming a destination in the upcoming season, he added, "250,000 miles to the moon. Once they've landed, they must find the lunar module from 1969. Yeah, so that's what's coming up on The Amazing Race next season. Teams are going to the moon."
Later, he stated that the show needs to keep things fresh.
The Amazing Race Season 27 will premiere on 25 September on CBS.
