The 11 teams from the Amazing Race got their start in Times Square in New York and headed off to Flushing Meadows Park, the same place where Season 1 concluded 25 years ago. Adam and Bethany, a couple from Hawaii were in first place at this point.
New this year, is a save pass that allows the winners from the first leg to save themselves from being eliminated up until the ninth leg of the race. You might remember Bethany as the young woman who was bitten by a shark at the age of 13.
Recently crowned as Miss Vietnam USA 2017, Los Angeles-based actress, model, host Isabelle Du couldn't be more proud of her Vietnamese heritage and her Asian American identity.
Born and raised in San Jose, California, she moved to Orange County to attend Chapman University.
Dennis and Isabelle, #The Dating Couple, Bethany and Adam, #Soul Surfers, Misti and Jim, #The Dentists, and Kym and Alli, #The Cyclists were all on the first flight. Keith and Whitney dug for that treasure chest on the beach for over three hours. Keith and Whitney decided to take the four hour penalty for not being able to find the chest and decided to get the other teams to do the same, so they told the other teams their plans.
They had a 40 minute advantage over the other teams. Keith was exhausted and said “I dug this whole area, so what do I do? Lisa dug for the #Miami Realtors team, and she felt that the treasure chest just wasn’t where she was digging. So, the group collectively agreed to go for the penalty and make a run for the pit stop together.
Isabelle got her first taste of being in a magazine when her rant and selfie (before the word "selfie" even existed) got into JANE Magazine.
Teams this season will be put to the test as they travel through eight countries and 20 cities, spanning more than 26,000 miles.
She spent 4 years living abroad in Asia and has now worked in countries such as Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Singapore, Argentina and even her motherland, Vietnam, where she spent the majority of her time.
Isabelle has worked with clients such as Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Tresemme, Logitech, Mossimo, Elle, FHM, Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Gadget Magazine.
The countless rejections and criticisms received throughout her career has given her thick skin.
She truly believes that with hard work, perseverance, and a positive mentality, it’s possible to make anything happen.
