The Amazing Race schedule is going to shift a bit. CBS is pushing Season 31, episode 5 back to make room for the Survivor season finale.
On Wednesday night, the Survivor season finale will take up three hours of network time. CBS will air the final two-hour episode and then the reunion show, where the $1 million winner gets revealed.
That doesn’t leave any room on the CBS docket for the new episode of The Amazing Race. Since Survivor is ending, though, it will clear up the schedule for The Amazing Race and then Big Brother 21 to take over on Wednesday nights.
When does The Amazing Race return?
The next new episode of The Amazing Race (Season 31, episode 5) is going to take place on Wednesday, May 22. That’s when the final eight teams will continue their race around the world.
The team that was eliminated during the last episode was Corinne Kaplan and Eliza Orlins. They finished just behind Rachel Reilly and Elissa Slater, who had a lot of trouble during one of the challenges.
Corinne and Eliza appeared on separate seasons of Survivor and teamed up for a chance on another one of the CBS reality competition shows.
Currently, the duo of Colin Guinn and Christie Woods is leading the way, followed closely by Victor Arroyo and Nicole Franzel. They will all be back when the show returns on May 22.
