Grant Denyer collapses and suffers medical emergency in Amazing Race trailer

Grant will be racing around the world with his wife Chezzi in the upcoming reality show.

Channel 10 has shared the first teaser for the upcoming season of The Amazing Race Australia: Celebrity Edition, featuring 11 teams made up of Aussie stars and their loved ones.

The new season, which is hosted by Beau Ryan, will see the cast travel to India, Malaysia, Cambodia and Borneo to try and win $100,000 for their chosen charity.

“Celebrities racing around the world, what could possibly go wrong?” Beau says in the trailer.

The teaser shows model Bec Judd and her sister Kate Twigley being scared by a woman apparently asking for money while sitting in the back of a tuk-tuk, and Australian Survivor fan-favourite George Mladenov encouraging his sister Pam to “vomit and get up”.

One of the most dramatic moments in the trailer is popular TV host Grant Denyer dramatically collapsing on the floor and requiring urgent medical attention while his wife Chezzi stands over him.

“Can we get the medic? He’s shaking, he’s shivering,” a voice is heard saying.

The Gold Logie winner is shown lying on his side with his head resting on a pile of clothes surrounded by empty bottles of water and cans of Red Bull.

In addition to Bec and Kate, George and Pam, Jackie and Ben, and Grant and Chezzi, the star-studded cast includes former Olympic athlete Jana Pittman and her eldest child Cornelis, and former Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins and her sister Hayley.

Meanwhile, Too Hot To Handle star Harry Jowsey and his best mate, Love Island's Teddy Briggs, will be teaming up, as well as TV host Darren McMullen and his nephew Tristan Dougan.


Rounding out the cast is model, singer and actress Alli Simpson and her mum Angie, actor and comedian Peter Rowsthorn and his daughter Frankie, and comedian Dane Simpson and his dad Bow.

Although an exact air date is yet to be announced, it’s believed the reality show will premiere in October.
