 Natalie Kumar talked with MLive about being on the show:

The Amazing Race” is like, our favorite show. To be on it is unreal. It’s totally different when you’re sitting on the couch watching it than being on the show. The whole time when we started, we kept pinching ourselves asking, is this really happening? Are we actually on the show? It was an incredible experience.

They actually began filming in February of 2020 but production was put on hold multiple times due to the ongoing pandemic. Over one and a half years later and the longest pitstop in the show's history, The Amazing Race resumed. The two-hour season premiere airs tonight, January 5 at 8 PM on CBS and on demand on Paramount+.

Best of luck to Arun and Natalia Kumar.
