CBS’ The Amazing Race kicked off season 22 on Feb. 17 by sending teams to incredible Bora Bora. It’s hard to believe there are many places the show hasn’t filmed in its 21 previous seasons, but this was the first trip to the French Polynesian paradise for the show. 

Viewers were treated to incredible views of the lagoon and barrier reef surrounding the island when contestants skydived from a helicopter 3,000 metres above ground. Viewers also saw just how hot things can get in Bora Bora when teams had to dig for hours through sand on a sizzling beach searching for hidden clues.

Future episodes in season 22 will see contestants travel to New Zealand and Indonesia among other destinations.
