Amazing Race 9 (with Bittorrent)

This is an archived page dealing with The Amazing Race 9. These trackers are most likely dead, but maybe you’ll get lucky. For The Amazing Race 10, currently airing in the US, look here. Season 6, Season 7 (which is also on DVD, so go buy it), and Season 8 are also available.

Yes, it’s Amazing Race time again. This reality show that always seemed to be on the verge of being cancelled has made it to Season #9, which starts tonight at 9pm in the U.S. After hitting a pothole, tripping, and falling flat on its face last year when it aired the craptastic “Family Edition”, it’s trying to regain it’s momentum this year by, and I quote the CBS website here, “return[ing] to its international format.” Looks like even CBS realized how much Season 8 sucked, and is apologizing accordingly.

Tonight’s first stop is Sao Paolo, Brazil, which is a far cry from last season’s premiere in which teams had to drive across Manhattan and buy sleeping bags. Check out Phil’s travel diary from the first leg at TVGuide.com.

And along with the return to the “international format”, we’re also getting a return to teams of two, meaning that they’ll be able to ride in normal-size taxis again, as well as sparing We The Audience the mindbending horror of having to learn 40 people’s names like last year. And I usually don’t try to prejudge the teams based on nothing but their bios, because anything like that ends up way off base. But there are a couple of blonde bartenders that I hate instantly, and a pair of hippies (no, wait, “bohemians”—even worse) that better be really likeable and funny, because otherwise their whole Berkeley schtick is just going to piss me off. The rest of the contestants are just a sea of faces to me right now. And so they shall remain until tonight.

As always, if you want the best and most in-depth, scene-by-scene analysis of the show, don’t look here, head over to read Miss Alli’s recaps at Television Without Pity. But if you missed an episode, or just want to download them for your collection, do look here, because I’ll be posting Bittorrent links for each episode for the 4th season in a row.

    Thanks for keeping the torrents updated. It is much-appreciated by those of us that live abroad and don’t have the show televised. Because of this, I have now seen every episode of The Amazing Race and look forward to this season with more excitement than ever before. Keep up the “amazing” effort!

    Thank you for the very useful link on these torrents. As I do not get to see the show in my part of the world, China, this had been a very helpful place for me to catch up the the only reality show that interest me.

    Only complaint, if you can update the torrents faster, it’s be great. All the waiting is making me sweat…

    Keep up the good work.

    There are two torrents that link to files named after episode 5 in this list, however, they are not the same episode 5s, they are two different episodes.

    I’ve downloaded episode 7 twice and it is corrupted or something so that it crashes all my various media players. Has anyone else found this?

    Perhaps there is another version out there?

    Anyway thanks for the links.

    how do i watch these amazing race episodes?
    I tried to download episodes 9, 10, and 11. It asks me what application I should use and i don’t know! I need to see these missed shows, how?

  17. Craig says:

    To answer Pauls Question. These files are in bittorent format, so to download them you need a Torrent download program such as bittorent,utorent,bitcomet etc. If you just google one of those names you should find a site to download from. Then you just download the torrents for the episodes you require then open them in your bittorent program and it will download the episode.
    Hope this helps.
    PS: Great site….
