Teams of two compete against other teams in challenges and a race all over the world. At the end of each part of the trip, one team gets eliminated. If you arrive at the Pit Stop mat last, you're outta here. There were 11 teams. I read the following quote from Reality Blurred and I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time:
- When Phil told Nicholas and Donald, the grandson and grandfather, that they were team number five, they both stood there and looked at Phil blankly like he’d just said, “I like spaghetti, and Play Doh is my friend.” Then Donald said, “finally,” as if they’d been waiting all their lives to check in fifth at the first pit stop.
If you're a really big fan of Phil, such as I, then you can totally picture him saying the play doh line. God I love this show.
