The Amazing Race All-Stars 1 is the first installment of the reality television show based fantasy game The Amazing Race Fantasy. Unlike previous versions, which almost exclusively feature teams with preexisting relationships, this edition features 22 contestants who were once competed on reality shows, such as The Amazing Race, Survivor, and Big Brother; they met for the first time and formed eleven teams of two at the starting line. These teams competed in a race around the world for a US$1 million grand prize.


The following teams participated in the Race, each listed along with their placements in each leg and relationships as identified by the program. Note that this table is not necessarily reflective of all content broadcast on television, owing to the inclusion or exclusion of some data. Placements are listed in finishing order:
