ImANewUser Amazing Race 11 (also known as Co-Eds Edition 2) is the 11th installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. This season features seventeen co-ed teams from the show, The Amazing Race.


Development and Filming

The route spans over 54,000 miles and covers 6 continents. Host and producer ImANewUser reveals that the season will feature first-time visits to the United Arab Emirates, Peru and the Netherlands. This season also featured the series' first visit to Turkey. The season was also confirmed to visit New Zealand, as well as the island of Bali in Indonesia. This season also includes visits to South Africa & Germany.

This season will introduce the Blind Double U-Turn, where teams can U-Turn another team (all the while remaining anonymous), as well as a new twist called the Forced Intersection, where teams are paired up by manner of a task as opposed to the partnerships being the teams' choice. The Hazard penalty has been retained from the previous season, though this season has no non-elimination legs.


All the teams this season have appeared on real seasons of The Amazing Race.

  • After the Roadblock, teams had to carry the poker chips to Bally's and exchange it with "Rich Uncle Pennybags" for their next clue.
  • At Bally's, teams had to play a life-sized variation of the board game Monopoly. While one team member went around the board collecting houses from various properties, the other team member had to place the houses on the flags of the countries visited on the Race where the team saw the house. Once all 11 houses were correctly placed on the flags, the red Monopoly house opened up, revealing their final clue.
  • After completing the final task, teams found a card inside the red Monopoly house: a title deed for St. Charles Place. Carrying the chest containing their poker chips, teams must figure out that the title deed card refers to the building presently standing where the St. Charles Place used to stand: Showboat Atlantic City, the Finish Line for this season.
