Madcap adventure game show The Amazing Race has proved to be the perfect tonic to the otherwise bitter drink known as 2020. This ideal distraction from reality now gets set to conclude an incredible 32th run, so read on to find out how you can watch The Amazing Race 32 online and stream the 2020 Amazing Race finale wherever you are in the world right now.
The new series has been a long time in the making. It was actually filmed all the way back in November and December 2018 - that's right, nearly two years ago - and was originally supposed to premiere in May. But CBS decided to hold it back due to the havoc inflicted on the TV production schedule by you-know-what.
The Amazing Race season 32 debuted on October 14, with new episodes airing every Wednesday at at 9pm ET/PT on CBS - culminating with the Amazing Race 2020 finale on December 16. You can live stream The Amazing Race on CBS All Access (opens in new tab) - and anyone from the US abroad can check out the VPN route (opens in new tab) to watch just like they would at home.
Phil Keoghan's been with us from day one and he's been back on hosting duties for TAR season 32, which follows 11 double-acts as they race around the world on a once-in-a-lifetime odyssey, exploring and getting lost and meeting new people and working and arguing and making up and solving challenges all along the way. Ah, the pre-pandemic world.
Season 32 ditches the themes that we've seen in recent years, but you're still going to recognise a few of the faces involved, most notably former Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge and former Panthers and Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams.
There's also former Olympic athletes, pro volleyball players, a father and son, couples, siblings and best friends - all of whom will have half a mind on that $1 million prize throughout.
Follow our guide below to watch The Amazing Race 2020 online - streaming TAR season 32 is easier than you might think, so start your own adventure today!

How to watch The Amazing Race online from outside your country
If you're abroad today but still want to get your Amazing Race fix just as you would if you were at home, you'll need a VPN to do so. This is because of the pesky digital phenomenon known as geo-blocking, which results in most Amazing Race US live streams, rather ironically, being restricted to specific parts of the world.
However, a Virtual Private Network offers a legal solution to this common internet woe and is remarkably easy to set up and operate. Here's how it works and where to get started.
