The Amazing Race China, also known as The Amazing Race: Jisu Qianjin (Chinese: 极速前进; pinyin: Jísù Qiánjìn), was the second version of The Amazing Race to be produced in China, following The Amazing Race: China Rush. It features celebrity teams of two from China and Taiwan in a race around the world.

The show premiered in 2014 and is currently still airing.

Names of tasks

  • Route Info: 信息 (Xìnxī)
  • Detour: 绕道 (Ràodào)
  • Roadblock: 路障 (Lùzhàng)
  • Yield: 让路 (Rànglù)
  • U-Turn: 回转 (Huízhuǎn)
  • Intersection: 联合 (Liánhé)

Features differing from the original version

  • The Yield and U-Turn appear together in the same season (The Yield replaced the U-Turn in the original version)
  • There were only eight teams on the first season, the lowest amount ever.
  • Due to the celebrity cast, not all legs are filmed back-to-back and teams sometimes return to China for a rest period after leaving a country. They will then begin the next leg while already in the next country.
  • The Save Pass is featured, forcing the team that wins it to bring back a previously eliminated team.
  • "Intruder" teams are featured, joining the competition mid-race and being forced to finish high enough on their first leg to avoid immediate elimination.

Rules differing from the original version

  • The penalty for quitting an additional task is at the discretion of producers, ranging from 15 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Teams are permitted to tell locals that they are on "The Amazing Race".
  • Teams are permitted to hitchhike in privately-owned vehicles.
