Fresh off its 10th Emmy for Outstanding Reality Competition Program, the CBS show is gearing up for its September 26 return with some new faces. One notable addition -- surfer Bethany Hamilton.
"She's come back and inspired so many young women," Phil said of Bethany, who lost her left arm in a shark attack. "Now she even says that this was meant to happen to her just because it's been such a life-changing event and being able to inspire so many people."
Watch the video to hear what else Phil had to say about the new season, including a game-changing element.
The Amazing Race season premiere airs Friday, September 26 at 8/7c on CBS.
