US reality series The Amazing Race has been around since 2001

If you were an avid viewer, you might recall rooting for your favourite team as they scrambled their way to the finish line by deducing clues and navigating through foreign places.

The competitive spirit of the players could always be felt through the screen as it left us on the edge of our seats.

In March this year, the series was renewed for its 34th season after a short suspension during COVID-19.

Unlike scripted dramas and sitcoms, it's known that reality TV shows like The Amazing Race does not rely on actors, and instead focuses on recording footage of real events or situations

However, at the end of the day, we know that what eventually gets edited and shown on screen may not always be what it seems — even in reality series.

Yet, it's still fun to watch these types of shows after a long day of work or just to unwind.

Despite most of us knowing this, many have been surprised after someone recently revealed a snippet into a behind-the-scenes shot of The Amazing Race

Last week, TikTok user @joshgarlepp shared a clip allegedly taken during a recording of The Amazing Race, which showed a team doing several re-takes during the competition.

"I'm sorry you all had to find out like this," Josh wrote in the comments of the video that has since received over 102,500 likes. 

Reality hit hard for many.
