Development

The MRT National Theatre in southeast side of New Phoenix was the starting line of The Amazing Race 4.

The season was announced on the wiki alongside its applications on January 31, 2016. The season was declared postponed on February 24, 2016 due to lack of public interest and MinecraftYoshi26 being busy. The season was postponed until March 11, 2016 when applications re-opened. The starting line was announced to occur on April 9, 2016 on March 29, 2016. On April 17, 2016, the second session's time was announced to occur on April 30, 2016. On May 3, 2016, the finale's session time was announced to occur on May 7, 2016.

For the first time, members were allowed to make guesses for the starting city. Each member had a free guess and each guess after costed money. Members were allowed to guess in late March 2016. On April 2, 2017, it was guessed correctly and it was revealed that the MRT National Theatre in New Phoenix would be the starting line.

This season spanned 21 cities on the New World, with first-time visits to the cities of Quiris, Liten, Nippia, Wazamawazi, Amestris, Covina, San Reinoldi, Siletz, Formosa, Segville, Utopia, Kolpino City, Daneburg, Avant Heim, Camino, Haskaa, and Birdhall. For the first time in the show's history, teams only stayed on the New World.

This season saw the Race's first Blind Double U-Turn, where the two teams who U-Turned other teams would remain anonymous.

Cast

Applications originally opened on January 31, 2016; however, they were postponed and closed on February 24, 2016. Applications were reopened on March 11, 2016 and were officially closed on March 26, 2016. Before the start, nine teams were on the list to participate in the Race. Out of those teams, six full teams of the original list showed up. As per usual, walk-ins to join the Race on the day were permitted, which allowed Gopher to join. RedBear47's original partner, MindBender15 failed to show up and thus Gopher was paired with him, creating the only new team.

This season marks the first time that an all British team has won the Race.
