Relative Race

Relative Race

2 Seasons

Contestants race across the country in search of relatives they have never met, in hopes they will reach the finish line first and win the grand prize. Four teams (red, blue, green, black) are given clues and challenges along the way that lead them to people who share the same DNA. The last-place finisher at each stage of the competition receives a strike. Three strikes and that team is out.
