ImANewUser Amazing Race 14 (also known as IANU AR All-Stars 2: Unfinished Business) is the 14th installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. This season features eighteen teams from the last six seasons, chosen to race again as "All-Stars" with "unfinished business". This is the first season to be hosted on CTS (Clubs That Suck) and conducted on Discord.

Production

Development and Filming

The route spans all seven continents, including first-time visits to Laos, Papua New Guinea and the South Shetland Islands in Antarctica. The season also featured return visits to Bermuda, Fiji and the Canary Islands, as well as to Uruguay, Iran and Costa Rica. Similar to other IANU AR seasons, this season will feature a visit to Russia. Other countries visited include Argentina, Jamaica and Chile.

This season will continue the Salvage Pass introduced in Season 13. The Hazard penalty has been retained from the previous season, but it did not appear this season due to the elimination structure of the race.

Cast

Casting occurred during February 2019. 18 teams were selected from previous seasons for a second chance to win the million dollar prize. All 18 teams were described as "having come so close to winning but, for one reason or another, didn't get to the finish line first". The prior experience of all the teams in previous seasons allowed the producers to increase the difficulty of the various tasks and challenges they were to face. All of the teams have been from recent seasons of the Race; the earliest season represented is Season 8.

The full list of returning teams, their prior race placements, and their "Unfinished Business" are:

  • From Season 8
    • Derek & Drew, twins, 2nd place; they had trouble finding their first route marker in Toronto, Canada, which cost them valuable time.

    • Ron & Christina, father and daughter, 4th place; they lost critical time looking for 2A Ton Duc Thang Street in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and were not able to catch up even as they made up time at the Roadblock.
