The Amazing Race – February 2013
The Island of Bora Bora hosts CBS’ The Amazing Race!

The dream destination of Bora Bora played host to the first two episodes of the 22nd season of CBS’ The Amazing Race.  The first episode aired on February 17, 2013, and both episodes were filmed on the island of Bora Bora. Air Tahiti Nui, Tahiti Tourisme North America, Air Tahiti and Hilton French Polynesia were eager to participate in the project since this multi-Emmy award winning show is known for creating contestant challenges that celebrate the culture and unique features of each country they visit.

The Amazing Race challenged the contestants to experience some of Tahiti’s top adventures including skydiving from above Bora Bora’s signature blue lagoon and its majestic Mt. Otemanu, sand castle building on a powdery white sand beach and assembling an outrigger canoe to race across the lagoon.
