Team Miss America have set off on "The Amazing Race"

On the Sept. 27, 2009, the two-hour season premiere of 'The Amazing Race', included former Miss America (2004), Erica Dunlap and her husband, Brian Kleinschmidt.

"The Amazing Race" has won seven reality-competition Emmys in a row.

Sunday's exciting premiere suggests that an eighth prize wouldn't be a surprise. "The Amazing Race" is simply television's best reality contest, even if it doesn't have the ratings to match "American Idol" or "Dancing With the Stars."

All those Emmy victories have helped keep the "Race" running on CBS. The show is beautifully photographed, expertly edited and smartly cast. The new season starts with a two-hour premiere at 8 p.m. Sunday on WKMG-Channel 6.

Fans of Ericka Dunlap, the Miss America who graduated from the University of Central Florida, will see a lot of her with her husband, Brian Kleinschmidt.

Other players quickly emerge as strong characters: the fib-telling poker players, the Harlem Globetrotter teammates, the overbearing lawyer, the handsome gay brothers, the charming man with Asperger's Syndrome.

There's a nasty surprise at the starting line, a highly entertaining stop at a Japanese game show in Tokyo and a gripping race through flooded streets in Vietnam.

1. Tokyo

2. Cai Be, Vietnam

3. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

4. Phnom Penh, Cambodia
