What would be more amazing than a race to not only have a chance to win $25K, but to find and meet relatives you didn’t know you had? BYU-TV has the exclusive showing of a new reality TV series called Relative Race. The show will air with 11 episodes starting on Sunday, February 28th, 6 PM MT. The show is in partnership with AncestryDNA. DNA test results is how they found the relatives of each participant. During a RootsTech premier showing of the first episode, viewers were laughing and feeling the tension from the drama the couples go through in competing.
The show is a combination of fun, emotion, drama, stress, lots of humor and the joy of learning about family. Rules involve giving up technology and going old school with maps and asking help from strangers. Just deciding who will drive and who will look at the map was funny and something most couples can relate to.
