The Amazing Race Vietnam 2019 is the sixth season of the reality television show, The Amazing Race Vietnam. This season premiered on July 6, 2019 on VTV3 . Ten teams will compete in a high-octane dash around Vietnam for a chance at the winning crown and VND300.000.000 in cash.

This season featured a new twist on the Thẻ Uư Tiên. The recipients of the Thẻ Uư Tiên could either use it to skip a task of their choosing or use it to save a team from elimination, much like the Salvage Pass . Also, much like the previous season, teams departed the Pit Stop in five-minute intervals instead of the actual time difference between check-ins.


Development

In May 2019, rumors circulated that VTV3 and BHD were attempting to revive the Race franchise after a three year hiatus from the previous season. Soon after, open casting calls for a new season of The Amazing Race Vietnam appeared. Filming for this season began on May 16, 2019, when fans of the show spotted the racers in Hà Giang Province.

On May 28, 2019, Season 3 winner and Season 5 runner-up Hương Giang posted an image of a Race clue envelope onto her social media leading to speculation that she would appear on the season. Later that day, images surfaced of Hương Giang checking teams into the Pit Stop at Da Lat.It was later revealed that Hương Giang would be temporarily talking over the role of host due to Song Luân having work commitments. Hương Giang is the second former racer that returned to host the show after Toya Montoya, who hosted two seasons of the Latin American edition after competing on the third season. Hương Giang is also the third woman, after Toya Montoya and Tara Basro, and the first member of the transgender community to serve as a Race host. This season is also the second time a show has changed hosts partway through filming after the first season of the Chinese edition.

On June 2, 2019, the revival of the show was officially announced on the show's Facebook page prior to the completion of the season's filming .

Notes:
1: Both Gia Huy & Hoàng Hạnh and Vũ Xuân Tiến & Chu Minh Vũ elected to take a twenty-minute penalty for not finding a clue during the first task and checked into the Pit Stop tied for last place. As a result, both teams would receive no money and no provided vehicles on the following leg.
2: Johnny & Huy Trần initially arrived 7th, but were issued a 15-minute penalty for covering their Sting case during the final task, which was prohibited (Gia Huy & Hoàng Hạnh also covered their case, but the case still ended up wet. So, they had to perform the task again and were not issued a penalty). Quốc Thiên & Anh Quân arrived at the Pit Stop right when the penalty-time expired, so both teams checked into the Pit Stop at the same time in last place; however, both teams were not eliminated as Song Luân notified Leg 4 was a non-elimination leg.
3: Leg 5 was a double-elimination leg. The last two teams checked in at the Pit Stop were both eliminated.
4: ST Sơn Thạch & Bình An arrived 1st in the first leg of the season and were awarded with the Salvage Pass / Express Pass in Hà Giang Province . They used it in Leg 5 to save Minh Triệu & Kỳ Duyên from elimination.
5: Both H Hen Niê & Lệ Hằng and ST Sơn Thạch & Bình An arrived at the same time (2nd place)
