‚ÄčOver the years, the The Amazing Race (TAR) has seen some incredible competitors take part in the hugely popular, multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series hosted by Phil Keoghan. Each episode of The Amazing Race lets us enjoy the thrill of the chase and the joy of seeing the world!

Here are five of our favorite racers and a look back at their memorable moments.
