The Amazing Race 5 filming completed

Filming of the 5th season of the CBS-TV around-the-world travel reality show, The Amazing Race, began at the end of January 2004, and finished at the end of last week.

Thanks to everyone around the world who was keeping an eye out for the race, and keeping me posted about their sightings. I can say with confidence that some of the rumors that have appeared about this season’s race route and destinations are true.. and some aren’t.

Perhaps the most interesting recent rumor (which I’ve been unable to verify) is that the new season may be ready for broadcast in the USA this spring, starting as soon as a month from now. Spring broadcast had been the original plan for season #4, which was filmed a year ago, scheduled for broadcast in Spring 2004, but rescheduled and broadcast in Summer 2004.

As of now, there’s been no official word from CBS as to any broadcast date for The Amazing Race 5.

Whenever the new season is broadcast, I’ll once again be providing weekly overnight commentary (unless I’m travelling myself outside the broadcast area) on what we can learn from reality-TV travel for our own trips around the world.

And with the help of those who have spotted the race as it was being filmed, I can promise some interesting surprises along the way.

Stay tuned!

Do you know when applications for amazing race 6 will open?

Posted by: l. bramy, 15 March 2004, 11:24 (11:24 AM)

Guess what... have you guys actually seen the first episode yet?
Well it has aired in Australia thus far and second episode is due this sunday... YAY!!!

So if it aint hit your small screen yet then you might like to know they go to South Africa, and I dont recall anybody taking the slow route on the detour, yep even the old couple went across the canyon and then swung down to the bottom....

Hi Actaully

Its a repeat of the first race shown a few years ago. But one of the most entertaining onces.

Does any one know if Australia is going to broadcast its own version of the amazing race? I am a huge fan and cant wait to watch race 5 !!!

Posted by: Simone, 23 March 2004, 16:06 ( 4:06 PM)

Does anyone know reasons why only US citizens can
participate. Could there be an Amazing Race series for other nations.

LAURA (Canada)

Posted by: Laura, 24 March 2004, 15:29 ( 3:29 PM)

hi im a big fan of amazing race.cant wait to see 5 part. so broadcast it as soon as possible.

Posted by: aman, 25 March 2004, 01:50 ( 1:50 AM)

I can't explain how excited I am for Amazing Race 5! There is a race here in Canada called City Chase and it goes accross 8 cities starting in May and its the closest us neighbors to the north can come to being a contestant on Amazing Race. This show is such an awesome way of seeing cool places around the world and I hope it's broadcast soon.

Posted by: nicky t, 26 March 2004, 18:25 ( 6:25 PM)

I'm also a big fan of the Amazing Race series. Thought they had been cancelled but am happy to learn that another one will be aired SOON!

Posted by: SL, 31 March 2004, 12:53 (12:53 PM)

does anyone know when it will air here in the philippines??

Posted by: emily, 6 April 2004, 01:14 ( 1:14 AM)

CBS announced on the 2nd of April that the first episode of The Amazing Race 5 will air on July 6th! YEA FINALLY!!!

Posted by: Joeyvgirl, 12 April 2004, 16:32 ( 4:32 PM)

I can't wait! Apparently there will be some new twists. First, there will be two competitors from an old big brother -- the cuban &*(! and his girlfriend, and that those who come in last at non-elimination check points lose all thier $.

I think it would be fine if it came back as is, with out the twists -- cause it just rocks!!

Posted by: meeshti, 5 May 2004, 07:58 ( 7:58 AM)

WORD! Have been waiting for 5 for over a year now, even was going to apply back in Sept. Anyone know why they have such a small application window. It seems like everytime I find out there is 1-2wks left. Guess My bud and I will make the video ahead of time.


Posted by: huskerdoo, 6 May 2004, 09:40 ( 9:40 AM)

HI! L'm from Quebec city, Canada and I'm so excited that my favorite reality show is coming!
We're about 4 people at my work wtchig the Amazing Race and it give us an occasion to get together and make our prognostics. Can't wait for july 6th.

Posted by: Sylvie, 6 May 2004, 13:43 ( 1:43 PM)

So the episodes currently airing in Australia on Sundays around noon are old ones, right? Hope so! My sister and I are huge fans and we only just realised that it was being shown! I mean really, who gets up early enough on a Sunday to check the TV Guide? ;) Can't wait for the new series too! And yeah why isn't there an Aussie version or an overseas version that we could compete in? That would be the best. Anyways I just wanted to say that the Amazing Race rocks, it's the only good reality show around!! :)

Posted by: Kylie, 28 May 2004, 08:45 ( 8:45 AM)

Rumour has it that the Amazing Race filmed here in Calgary, Alberta at the site of the 1989 Winter Olympics,, in late February.

That is the buzz around here, but I have no evidence to substantiate it.

Posted by: Travis, 29 May 2004, 22:54 (10:54 PM)

I love amazing race. And I can't wwait for #5 to air. I htink it airs in United States in the Summer. I am totally upset cause I could ove gotten the time when it aired but my dad changed the staition right away and I missed it. I was about to kill my dad.

Posted by: abbey, 7 June 2004, 08:16 ( 8:16 AM)

Finally, another Amazing Race about to start in July, can't wait to see it. My Husband & I have watched every one and find it very exciting to watch. The beautiful secenry is great to see also. I'm sure we will enjoy watching this one.

Posted by: Jac, 10 June 2004, 07:05 ( 7:05 AM)

I am a big fan of the Race. Never missed an episode of any of the 4 races so far. I have no plans of missing an episode for this new season...

It has been confirmed that the Race would end in the Philippines....

cant wait for July 6...

Posted by: uglykidjoey, 29 June 2004, 02:01 ( 2:01 AM)

I've been living in China for the past three years and have just finished watching No. 4 (after No. 3) on Saturday nights. My wife loves it. In fact, she loves it so much it has helped hone her English skills. My reading of Chinese subtitles improved too.

I have a friend in Japan. We're both from Virginia, both multi-lingual, and could kick arse on this show. We know how to travel. And we can still move our butts in quick time too! Moving Octopus, no problem. Just slurp 'em down! Yum Yum!

Can't wait for five. My wife will be disappointed when I tell her it won't be starting here tonight.

Posted by: paul, 3 July 2004, 00:34 (12:34 AM)

i heard the 11th and 12th pitstops would be from the Philippines. the 11th would be in manila at the coconut palace and the 12th would be in El Nido, Palawan.

El Nido is a paradise wow

Posted by: AeonDva, 3 July 2004, 22:45 (10:45 PM)

My daughter & I would love to sign up for the amazing race. When is the application available for the next race?

Posted by: Lucy, 6 July 2004, 16:31 ( 4:31 PM)

does anyone know if there is going to be a canadian version of the amazing race. i really dont understand why only US citizens are allowed to be in the show. if there can be a Canadian Idol, i think there can be the amazing race canadian version

Posted by: FH, 6 July 2004, 20:16 ( 8:16 PM)

i have heard that the amazing race 5 will really end here in the philippines.
it's been confirmed already and rumors are saying that it will be in palawan, the other would be in manila.
since i started watching this incredible show, i've always wondered when the contestants would come here in the phils.
it's a nice country u know...

Posted by: argel, 6 July 2004, 21:51 ( 9:51 PM)

Where can we get applications for Amazing Race6?
And when will they start accepting them

Posted by: Sandy Roach, 8 July 2004, 08:30 ( 8:30 AM)

Im very happy that THE AMAZING RACE 5 will visit the Philippines. I think its the only way for the Philippines to attract tourists. Amazing Race 5 really ROCKS!!! Good LUCK GUYS in the Competition!!!

Posted by: rustie fidel, 12 July 2004, 06:02 ( 6:02 AM)

YAY!!! Amazing Race is going to PI, YAY!!!

Posted by: confedential rain, 14 July 2004, 20:39 ( 8:39 PM)

hey.. A.R.5 already airing here in the Philippines - at last! I can't wait to see the episodes when they are already here in our country. It'll be easier for them to roam around 'cause we communicate in english. Hehehe -- I hope they will enjoy their trip here. But they need to know some filipino words too. (the useful ones)

Posted by: [isla0], 18 July 2004, 07:36 ( 7:36 AM)

If there is a canadian Amazing Race...and they need people from Quebec city to play the game with the participant...I'm available...either to greet them or be at a certain place during a play...Just love the game!!!

Posted by: sylvie, 27 July 2004, 13:12 ( 1:12 PM)

i am a very very very big fan of amazing race ever since...but how come that only us citzen who can participate in the race,,,i think it would be much more exciting if other nation can eligible to join..since they are racing around the world. andre from philippines/.

Posted by: andrew asidera, 2 August 2004, 23:57 (11:57 PM)

omg i cant wait till it the amzing race goes to the philippines.. im so excited!!

Posted by: lina, 4 August 2004, 16:17 ( 4:17 PM)

does anybody here know of the entire route for this season's amazing race? and by the way, i've been wanting to join AR as well, but i'm not american. i think the reason why they only allow US citizens in the race is for the main and plain reason of being fair. you know having a pair from another country would immediately complicate the race. like having a couple from spain or say taiwan, even if they speak english well, would immediately create an edge for these non-americans, thus imposing unfair threats and challenges to the americans. so it'll be better if AR would be open to franchising or something just as Pop Idol was in britain before it reached the states.

Posted by: woojeong, 8 August 2004, 06:15 ( 6:15 AM)

i think after their current stint in luxor egypt, the teams will go to one of the safer african countries. maybe kenya or tanzania. then they'll go to dubai (famous for their sail-shaped hotel by the sea) (the destinations are seen in the opening of the show, where split-second destinations are shown there) russia was there and so was egypt. and i heard they'll be going to india? is this true? and they'll be heading for the philippines... coconut palace, then el nido. after that back to the states. is there an official list as to their destinations?

Posted by: juls, 11 August 2004, 09:55 ( 9:55 AM)

the last two pit stop will be the philippines i cant wait i hope their race is still on going so i'll be able to see or even meet them in person..... specially charla and mirna...

Posted by: jio, 18 August 2004, 23:04 (11:04 PM)

I feel very sorry for charlote and myrna but i really admire them because even their team seems to be weak they are very determine to finish each leg of the race, I also hate Colin and Christine and the rest of the gang except Chip and KIm and the bowling moms..Colin and company was very rude to overcome between the cousins they are so greedy for money...well i hope the character that they have will vanish when they come here in our country(PHILIPPINES will be the 2 last pit stop of the RACE and the Lagen Islands in El Nido which one of the BEST PLACE in the world its like a pearl facing the sun) Well to all the member GOOD LUCK and welcome to the busy world of MANILA and the cleanest city of PALAWAN, more challenging DETOUR and ROAD BLOCK awaits you in our country! MABUHAY=Long live MALIGAYANG PAGDATING=WELCOME and MAHAL NAMIN KAYO=We love you SALAMAT=Thank you :)

Posted by: Viel, 22 August 2004, 22:48 (10:48 PM)

well, i am not sorry for myrna and charlotte. They were very sneaky. But i guess that's what you need to do if you want to go further in the race. I hope Kim and Chip will win.

Posted by: sylvie, 23 August 2004, 09:30 ( 9:30 AM)

i really wanted charla and mirna win the contest.i was hoping they could reach philippines, but unfortunately the didin't. i hope there's an "all star" season in amazing race. including mirna and charla.

Posted by: danver, 24 August 2004, 01:20 ( 1:20 AM)

ei.. wazzap... hope my team can race until they reach my country.. the philippines... yey!.. go kami and karli..

Posted by: `jackpot, 27 August 2004, 03:50 ( 3:50 AM)

is amazingrace5 finish? they've been to the phil already????? hope not.. want to see them! esp brandon&nicole.. pls let me know.. tnx!

Posted by: pinkx, 29 August 2004, 00:44 (12:44 AM)

rumors has it that the pitstops in the coconut palace will be an elimination race (which whittles the players to 3 teams) and the one in palawan is a non-elim.

net threads say that they will be eating balut? or pancit? whichever, and that they will search for birds nests in palawan and that they will jump into a lagoon.

this is a tremendous help to the dept. of tourism because it would show that the phils is really a safe tourist destination.

spotted in dallas (leg 13?):
1. Nicole & brandon
2. Colin & Christie
3. up for grabs between Kim & chip and the Bowling moms

Posted by: Julsitos, 1 September 2004, 22:08 (10:08 PM)

dadaan sila sa pinas! excited na ko!!! sana makita ko sila in person!


Posted by: joy_bait, 2 September 2004, 02:49 ( 2:49 AM)

amazing race is the best reality/adventure show!!! i wish they plan to make a amazing race video game!!! it will be AWESOME. please make one. amazing race is the best, more seasons to come please?

Posted by: leby, 8 September 2004, 17:37 ( 5:37 PM)

don't see the amazing race on wednesday at 9:45 am on studio 23 and they are going to philippines from rotorua, new zealand in next episode chip has fear of heights, colin & christie have a carabao farm as araro in tagalog language, then teams have an ultimate betrayal.

good luck to them until el nido (episode 12)

Posted by: claude, 8 September 2004, 18:58 ( 6:58 PM)

i've already seen the teaser of ar5 ep11 and they're doing the race in the philippines!!! yipee!!! i was just wondering when did the ar5 teams arrive? i just wish they were in the news so avid ar fans (like me) can see them in person... well, goodluck 2 d 4 remaining teams, most especially to brandon and nicole!!! i think you guyz are really nice people coz it shows on how well you treat each other, and i think you deserve to win this race!

Posted by: vhyck, 9 September 2004, 00:27 (12:27 AM)

Good luck to all the teams left in the AMAZING RACE 5. I felt sad for kami and karli because they are the ones who are out, but life goes on, right? and i feel proud (for a second) for our country because they will visit us here... goodluck especially to the bowlinng moms...hope they shouldnt be YIELDED...hope that colin and christie will be eliminated, OK? GUD LUCK and GOD BLESS to the remaining teams...

Posted by: mallari, 9 September 2004, 02:51 ( 2:51 AM)

I think the reason why only US citizens can be on the show is the passport issue. US citizens usually don't need visas to travel anywhere in the world. If contestants were told to get certain visas then they'll have an idea on where they'll be traveling which eliminates the mystery. Plus of course it's an American show so they feature Americans. With regards to the show--I can't stand Colin!!! It would be a big disappointment if they win. Good luck to the rest of the teams tho! I hope they show great/interesting parts of the Philippines! At's The Amazing Race Insider they show an authentic jeepney racing past the screen! :-)

Posted by: JAF, 9 September 2004, 14:47 ( 2:47 PM)


Posted by: A.R. WATCHER, 9 September 2004, 17:10 ( 5:10 PM)

I hope Chip and Kim will win...I really like Chip's attitude...He takes time to appreciate every place they've been...It's like he's always having fun...Brandon and Nicole are always praising God, and I admire that...The Bowling Moms are really the luckiest...They always get into trouble but always managed to survive---they're wonderful!...As for Colin and Christie-if they lose, oh boy, I hope Colin wont hang himself- he's way too intense!

El Nido Palawan---worth all the detours and roadblocks!

Posted by: Lyn, 10 September 2004, 02:53 ( 2:53 AM)

Don't miss the amazing race destination: Philippines but there are two episodes: Manila (September 15) and El Nido (September 22) on AXN.

Posted by: claude, 10 September 2004, 14:29 ( 2:29 PM)

I am so happy that the amazing race 5 last two pitstop will be held in the Philippines. Palawan is a great place, a real paradise. So, I hope you'll enjoy your stay here, cause i enjoy my stay in that beautiful place too... good luck!!!

Posted by: cherry, 10 September 2004, 23:36 (11:36 PM)

I am happy on Philippine episode in the amazing race. Colin & Christie have a meltdown in stubborn ox. He said to ox "oh my god, I hate you." Some teams ride tricycles and went to coconut palace to check the pit stop.

I love this show!!!

I like it for like that!!!

Posted by: claude, 11 September 2004, 16:53 ( 4:53 PM)

the amazing race 6 premieres on october 3, at 9 am. so excited i cant wait to see this one. and sana one of the pitstops would be here on the philippines again. ok?

gud luck to the remaining teams on 5!

Posted by: rinamallari, 12 September 2004, 02:11 ( 2:11 AM)

Whoaah! is it true? that the last 2 pit stops will be in the Philippines? where would be the finale? hmmm, Palawan? wow that is so cool!

Posted by: burn, 12 September 2004, 10:51 (10:51 AM)

i wish the pitstops could have been the wondrous locations in the Philippines like the Banaue Rice Terraces or Mayon Volcano.

Posted by: 6burn, 12 September 2004, 10:55 (10:55 AM)

is it confirmed that the finish line would be in el Nido, Palawan?

i mean - maganda yun sa turismo sa pinas, pero i still think sa US Soil ang finish line...

anyways, i agree dapat yung mas grand attractions naman sana ung ginamit nila... or maybe pass through banawe then head to mt.mayon then go through cebu before ending up where they did...

inubos ata ng cbs ung budget nila sa egypt (they had to pay BIG BUCKS to film on the giza plateau)...

Posted by: kenny boy, 12 September 2004, 16:39 ( 4:39 PM)


i wonder if TAR is really shown live...because i want to catch them here in manila...could anyone clarify??? please email me at

jia you BRANDON & NICOLE!!! thanks goodness you didn't let you heads be shaved!!

Posted by: kuting, 12 September 2004, 19:44 ( 7:44 PM)

OMG!!! I can't wait to see The Amazing Race 5(Philippines)!!! Im so excited!!! Btw,about the quesion above.. they finished filming TAR.. Studio23 will air it on Wednesday at 9:45 am and AXN at 7pm(Im not sure)...About the live via satelite thing, kasabay lang na ii-air sa US...
I hope Brandon and Nicole win!!Its okay for me if Chip and Kim win because they are nice but I dont like Colin and Christie... I dont like how Colin treats Christie.. He sucks...
I heard that the bowling moms will be the next to be eliminated?....

Posted by: Janet, 13 September 2004, 04:14 ( 4:14 AM)

thanks janet!
so it's not really live..."live via satellite" means kasabay lang sa it's true na around february this year pumunta dito ang TAR cast & crew...sayang..tsk...tsk...mag-a-absent pa nman sana ako this week pra lang mahanap sila & makita si brandon & nicole =(
i'm really excited for tomorrow's episode! masaya ito! =D
i like christie alone, she deserves someone better than colin...but still BRANDON & NICOLE rocks! ;)

Posted by: kuting, 13 September 2004, 20:45 ( 8:45 PM)

Latest rumor: Brandon and Nicole wins!!!!!!!!! Hehehehehehe. They have finished filming TAR5 last February/March. They are now filming TAR6, they will go to Iceland, and then to a mediterranean country (probably Greece or an island off Italy). Will they be going to the Philippines again? Well...... hehehehehehehe.

Posted by: spoilerboy, 13 September 2004, 21:50 ( 9:50 PM)

hah! My Canadian passport is as good as any american one.... let me in the race! It would be so incredible....

Posted by: staceifaction, 14 September 2004, 20:30 ( 8:30 PM)

Wow!!!Amazing Race is surely an entertaining show.

Posted by: maggie, 14 September 2004, 20:56 ( 8:56 PM)

Did y'all hear what Christie said to the driver of their jeepney?!? She said to RUN OVER the people that were in the middle of the street! She was going berserk that she was honking the horn where the driver had to slap her hand away!!! I had sympathy for her at first for being with Colin but now her true nature has surfaced which shows that they deserve each other. They're the very definition of the arrogant American! As for the show i think it's great that they had the contestants partake in situations that are unique to Philippine culture like decorating the jeepney! Also the fact that they were sent out to rural farming areas and yet there were people there who could communicate in English! I certainly hope this show brings an increased awareness of what the Philippines might be like. As you heard Nicole say "I don't know anything about the Philippines" with Brandon replying "all i know is that it's an island." I hope the viewers will come away with more than just that!

Posted by: JAF, 15 September 2004, 00:48 (12:48 AM)

Good job Chip and Kim! Yielding Colin and Christie wasn't a betrayal at all.
It's part of the game.

The fact that Chip even felt bad of what he did only shows that he is truly a kindhearted person.

Christie- how dare her say "Run them over!" (Referring to the people crossing the streets)
Yes, she may be under extreme pressure, but still, that's a very stupid thing to say!!!!!!

Walang puedeng gumanyan sa mga kababayan ko!

Posted by: lyn, 16 September 2004, 02:00 ( 2:00 AM)

at last, the manila & palawan pit stop episode of amazing race has already been aired on Philippine TV!!! actually, the whole philippines are idolizing you guys!!!

Posted by: sydney, 16 September 2004, 02:36 ( 2:36 AM)

i would really like brandon and nicole to win, but i guess it's ok if the moms win too. kim doesn't deserve to win the money because she's just tagging along. chip's the one doing all the tasks, and colin, no comment for this couple. did the stupedist thing with the ox. (my opinion, no offense).

Posted by: zaifay, 16 September 2004, 04:39 ( 4:39 AM)

At first, I thought that Christie is great and Colin is just a mad man who will always shout at his woman. But I was wrong. Colin has a reason to get mad!!! Christie's attitude showed... They both suck... Go BRANDON AND NICOLE!!!

Posted by: Janet, 16 September 2004, 06:04 ( 6:04 AM)

Colin and Christie sucks!!!! All the while i thought that they will be eliminated coz they arrive last at the pit stop. Lucky for them that Phil only took their money.. Anyway, I like the idea that the 3 teams ganged up on Colin & Christie to use the yield. I'm just wondering why only Chip & Kim has the guts to place their photo on the yield sign. The bowling moms and the models should also do that since all of them agree to yield Colin & Christie so that the 2 wont have a clue who did that yield to them.

Posted by: NOLD, 16 September 2004, 11:05 (11:05 AM)

Hey! I think Chip and Kim should win! They did a great job in yielding Colin and Christie--SHAME ON YOU!!!!! Who do they think they are???? Telling the driver of that jeepney, RUN THEM OVER! NO ONE DOES THAT TO THE FILIPINO PEOPLE! ABSOLUTELY NO ONE!!! Anyway, go Chip and Kim! Do more yields on Colin and Christie! They suck!

Posted by: shanelle, 18 September 2004, 02:41 ( 2:41 AM)

Is there any thought to a 'Where are they now?' for this series? It would be interesting to see if dating or engaged couples actually stayed together and how the winners used their funds. Also, what about the vacations that are given at the end of certain pit stops?

Posted by: Anonymous, 21 September 2004, 15:44 ( 3:44 PM)

I was so nervous the entire time I was watching--but all was paid off-- my favorite team won!

They are the nicest team and they deserve to win.


Posted by: LYN, 21 September 2004, 20:17 ( 8:17 PM)

YOUPI!!!! I thought i was gonna go crazy at the end, when the cab driver, for Colin and his "girlfriend", was going on the side to avoid the traffic....The best people won...

:o) :o) :o) :o) :o) :o) :o) :o)

Posted by: Sylvie, 22 September 2004, 06:16 ( 6:16 AM)

too bad the bowling moms got eliminated i really like them to win it, because they haven't win anything. i want to try the last roadblock where you have to climb 150 feet, that's fun and tiring too. i wish the next seasons of TAR do another pitstop here in the Philippines. The Amazing race deserve to win the best reality/adventure trophy in EMMY AWARDS. please do more exciting and amazing race. for me the amazing race 5 is the best and more exciting because of the contestant and because of the PHILIPPINE PITSTOP. MORE SEASONS OF AMAZING RACE!!!!

If you missed the official application deadline for the next season, but want to participate (and if you are a citizen of the USA -- the producers still haven't changed their rule that, "No Canadians or other 'foreigners' need apply", and I don't make the rules), I'd send in an application anyway: many of the cast members in previous seasons of the race have been selected outside the publicly-announced applications and auditions, and some applications have been held over from one season to another.

Im very dissapoited that the all 3 female teams got eliminated. Charla and Mirna is a strong team. Even if Charla had a size problem, they do finish in 2nd place for 3 times, close to first place in 2nd leg of the race. Kami and Karli is not that strong they just stay in the game because of the other teams, without chip and Kim, maybe they're eliminated early. Kami and Karli's accomplishment is always close to elimination. There's always one team behind them. Linda and karen is really a strong team. Even if they always got a late fligth, their physical appearance(NOT ATLETHIC BODY) They always to be in the front of the pack.

tahnks Trace number 1 FAN

Posted by: Tracey, 16 December 2004, 05:06 ( 5:06 AM)

I have the same query as Trace, I am Australian as well, and was wanting to see how to get on this show. If there is an australian version or if Australians can enter the american series, could you let me know. Thanks

It's really upsetting that only US citizens are allowed on the show. I'm an English speaker who is a US permanent resident. What's the problem? I would have been an awesome teammate...
Does anybody know if they'd make an exception for U.S. permanent residents?

Hey crew... yeah, how awesome is the amazing race! a few people have mentioned an australian version of the race. i have emailed channel 7 (show airs on this network here in aus), trying to get this happening as i would love to do it! there are so many things in the show i would love to be part of, and know i would be awesome at. hopefully chan 7 listen to all of us aussies and get this happening. i think it would be all about the advertising here... i mean if they did small 15 sec commercials about the couples for like two months before hand, so that even before the race started, people would already have an idea of who they would be rooting for... and as we know thats the fun of it. interesting... anyway, will keep yas posted. how about an international version... like 6 teams of aussies and 6 teams from the usa? just brainstorming here! email ben,

Posted by: Ben Ellis, 24 May 2005, 20:52 ( 8:52 PM)

and no trace and pete, applications are only open to american citizens. Doh!


Posted by: Ben Ellis, 24 May 2005, 20:55 ( 8:55 PM)

hey Ben and everyone else who watches the show.

im so keen (like prob half of Australia is) to have an Asutralian version or like ben sugegsted an international version. how awesome would it be if us aussies kicked american butt!! sorry to any americans that are reading this - just friendly competition. i try to catch every episode when i can but often i am working but anyway how good was last wednesdays show where they went to South Africa. I am actually from South Africa - been living in Aussie for a couple of years. Im 19 now but a true blue Aussie citizen. was just wondering....why do u reckon that most of the contestents are couples - is it to spice up the show cause there is more fighting etc - like if it ever did come here - i would prob go with my best friend. anyway just a thought.
Ben, great idea about international version! im so keen!!
Keep watching!!

Hey only just become hooked on the Amazing Race. Am also very keen to, at the very least, see the option of Aussie contestants, either in an Australian version of the Race or an international version.

Am a little behind in this forum as the last comment was posted almost six months ago but would love to hear how things are progressing- oh and if there is any point enlisting the support of the 400 odd uni students on campus to express our interest to the 7 network???
