Trans-Tasman rivalry is not a new thing, but the battlefield widens tonight with the debut of The Amazing Race: Australia v New Zealand.
Hosted by Kiwi Grant Bowler - Wolf, the former Mr Cheryl West in Outrageous Fortune - five Aussie teams will race five New Zealand teams for the top prize of $250,000.
Will the Kiwis work together to eliminate the Aussies? Or will it be dog-eat-dog out there as the teams battle for ascendency as they race around the world?
Television blogger Mike Kilpatrick will be in the controller's seat as Stuff brings you live coverage of the entire season.
See here what happend last night.
