Applications to appear on the CBS show "Amazing Race" are accepted throughout the year at the show's official casting webpage. Both couples and individuals can apply. The website also displays the locations and times of in-person open casting calls.
The online application process involves submission of personal information, along with a recent close-up picture and short video clip. Teams and individuals are both required to include a brief bio detailing why they would be suitable contestants. The only prerequisites for applying are being an American citizen who is 21 years or older. Potential contestants are also encouraged to be certain that they can take the necessary time off from work before applying.
