The Amazing Race Is Back! is the season premiere of The Amazing Race 35.

Story[]

Route Markers[]

The race begins at the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles, California, United States.

Teams must choose a marked car parked along North Beachwood Drive and drive themselves to Millennium Biltmore Hotel, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to be above it all?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must walk across the tightrope strung between two portions of the hotel's roof and find a billboard with a word puzzle, which represented their first destination ("City of Angels"). Once they unscrambled the word puzzle successfully, The Amazing Race 34 winners Derek & Claire would give them their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must fly to Bangkok, Thailand. Teams may only take one of two flights. The first flight is China Airlines and can only accommodate six teams. The second flight, scheduled to arrive 85 minutes after the first, is EVA Air, and can accommodate seven teams. Upon arriving teams must make their way to Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must take a long-tail boat and a tuk-tuk to Wat Suthat, where they would find their next clue. In addition, teams are given an opportunity to retrieve the Express Pass by searching for a marked food stall near Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen and each finish a plate of fried insects. Morgan & Lena won the Express Pass.

Choice A: Sword Play
Teams must make their way to Saranrom Park, where they must learn and perform a 30-second krabi-krabong routine using a traditional Thai darb sword. Once they have performed the routine to the judge's satisfaction, he would give teams their next clue.

Alexandra & Sheridan and Joe & Ian chose this task.

Choice B: Spa Day
Teams must make their way to Putthinan Thai Massage, where they must endure a traditional Thai massage for 30 minutes to receive their next clue. In the event that teams are unable to bear the painful part of the massage, they may signal the masseuse to stop. Doing so, however, would mean going to the back of the line and restarting the massage from the beginning. Only five massage stations are available at a time.

Andrea & Malaina, Elizabeth & Iliana, Greg & John, Jocelyn & Victor, Joel & Garrett, Liam & Yeremi, Morgan & Lena, Rob & Corey, Robbin & Chelsea, Steve & Anna Leigh, and Todd & Ashlie chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Wat Chaloem Phra Kiat Worawihan to check in.
For coming in first place, Jocelyn & Victor won Expedia cashback rewards for a trip for two to Patagonia, Chile.
