Take a look at the video The Amazing Race encountered its biggest roadblock yet.  

In early 2020, CBS’s season 33 was being filmed when the crew encountered an unexpected problem: the pandemic. The crew was only three episodes into season 33 and had no information. But they made a decision to stop the race out of fear.

CelebHomes News now has an exclusive view of the moment Keoghan announced that. In the clip, filmed on Feb. 28, 2020, he explains, “Right now, the world is dealing with the coronavirus and in order to keep you safe, we believe the best choice for all of us is to suspend the race.

Little did everyone know that the pitstop would last more than 18 months.

Looking back, contestant Akbar Cook said, “For them to shut down a race of this magnitude—in February, it was a scary time.”
