WHILE RACING THROUGH VIETNAM, TEAMS MUST NAVIGATE THEIR WAY THROUGH ROUGH WATERS AND AROUND ROCKY ISLANDS, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 10," SUNDAY, OCT. 8

"I Know Phil, Little Ol' Gorgeous Thing!" -- While racing through Vietnam, teams must navigate their way through rough waters and around rocky islands, on THE AMAZING RACE 10, Sunday, Oct. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Frustrated with their cab drivers, the leading team switches taxis three times en route to the next location.  Once there, teams must decipher a cryptic clue in the dead of the night.  At the Roadblock, teams must ascend and rappel a vertical 90-foot cliff at Hon Yen Ngua rock island in order to receive their next clue.  One racer injures their leg during the race, causing them to stop for medical attention.

THE AMAZING RACE 10 features 12 Teams of two on a trek around the world for approximately 30 days.  At every destination, each Team will compete in a series of challenges -- some mental and some physical -- and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination.  Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first Team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc., in association with Touchstone Television and Amazing Race Productions.  THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.
