Amazing Race 6
The Amazing Race 6 traveled across eleven nations and four continents for a total distance of 40,000 miles (64,000 km). August 13, 2004, marked the start of the 30-day shoot, which ended on September 12. Seven new nations were visited for the first time by The Amazing Race: Senegal, Hungary, Sri Lanka, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
The Amazing Race 5 has not yet been broadcast when CBS ordered the sixth season of the show in May 2004. Early renewal was probably a result of the improvements made in season 5. CBS also delayed the airing of season 6 until late in the fall and moved it out of its proposed Saturday timeslot to create a “cool down” period between races, in the hopes that this would help continue the newfound rating success.
