The Amazing Race 31 is the thirty-first installment of the reality television show The Amazing Race and the twelfth season covered by RHAP. It features eleven teams of two – each consisting of contestants from previous seasons of Big Brother, Survivor, and The Amazing Race – in a race around the world for a $1 million grand prize.
The Amazing Race 31 first got announced with a May 22, 2019 start date. However, due to the low ratings of Million Dollar Mile, the premiere got pushed up to April 17. The show aired on Wednesdays at 9:00 PM. Rob, Jessica Liese, and Mike Bloom continued to do episodic recaps, as well as provide exit interviews with the eliminated teams. Liese, Bloom, and Dan Heaton also released a cast preview the day after the cast announcement, done back in June right after the season began filming.
