The Amazing Race 29 is the twenty-ninth installment of the reality television show The Amazing Race and the eleventh season covered by RHAP. Unlike previous seasons, which featured at least some teams with preexisting relationships, this edition will feature 22 contestants who are all complete strangers; they will meet for the first time and form eleven teams of two at the starting line. These teams will then compete in a race around the world for a US$1 million grand prize.
After the previous season, The Amazing Race was shelved for a midseason premiere, with the success of MacGyver on Friday nights. Initially scheduled for a two-hour premiere on April 21, 2017, the show got bumped up nearly a month due to the low ratings of Training Day, premiering instead on March 30 in the time slot of Thursday night at 10:00 p.m.
Jessica Liese, after not appearing on a podcast since she took her maternity leave at the end of the summer, returned to cover the show with Rob Cesternino. Before the season, she did a draft of the singular players with frequent guests Mike Bloom and Dan Heaton. Rob and Jess recorded non-live recaps after every episode, and elected not to do exit interviews for the racers. The podcasts also moved to Reality TV RHAP-Ups in order to not clog the main Rob Has a Podcast feed with non-Survivor content, a move which was also done to coverage of Big Brother Canada 5.
