I think the two episodes were "axed" by production  before the race ever filmed. Otherwise, why would we have a start line in LA with first clues reading go to Ireland and not Belize? Was that filmed later and edited in?

There may certainly have been plans for two other episodes at one time.  But I do not believe that there were any "lost" episodes (as in filmed and not aired), particularly in Belize where all official evidence points to them never having actually entered the country.

I would love to know just when it was decided to go with two fewer episodes though. Bet they are sorry now with the strike underway.

 :lol:  Saw Ari and Staella on TV Guide Channel "RealityChat" yesterday.   B:)   B:)   B:)  ... what a couple of losers.... 

They said the donkey task took seven hours.   :o   That may be an exageration.   :groan:  FWIW, they said that the donkey went about 100 yards and stopped.  Then they said they stayed there for 4 hours,  then they pulled and dragged the donkey to the farm for the next 3 hours.  They may be embellishing it a bit.   :rotf:   Ba-bye!

Ari and Staella look like Drama Queens. 7 hours does sound like a bit much IMO.

If that is true, it would put them at the mat at about 7PM.  Any confirmation from Chateau of arrival times at the mat?  There are some good sun angles to negotiate times from.

It cant be true they also say they were only 20-30 minutes behind Nate/Jen.  So that means they were also the same behind Mariana and Julia and to me it didnt look like the task took Mariana and Julia 4-6 hours to do.

Kynt's comment about the U-turn make me think that it is a tool that can be use to hurt another team.

This was a pre-race interview.  The Goths said they had seen some of the other teams and decided that TK and Rachel ("the Dreadhead team") were going to be high competition.  Kynt said "I know I'm going to have to knock them out fast.  Just wait til I reach that U-turn.  Um-hmm, they look like competition."

This is an older article but I don't think it was posted so here goes~

'Amazing Race' goes to Ireland
Roger Catlin
Hartford Courant
Nov. 5, 2007 12:00 AM
The failure of the scripted drama "Viva Laughlin" after just two episodes broadcast in four days came with the kind of embarrassment that meets early losers on "The Amazing Race," which stepped up Nov. 4 to replace it.


All it lacked was Phil Keoghan intoning gravely, "You are last to arrive. I'm afraid you have been eliminated from the race."

The replacement of a much-promoted scripted series with a reality show also foreshadows what might happen with the newly called strike of the Writers Guild of America.
 


"I find it terrible it has to come to this," says Bertram van Munster, creator and producer of "The Amazing Race." "But you know what happened in the 1988 strike -- it was the birth of reality TV as we know it today."


Reality shows are expected to replace scripted shows if the strike lasts any length of time, just as "The Amazing Race" will replace "Viva Laughlin" on CBS -- a superior slot for the family-oriented reality show.


"We're thrilled we're on earlier in the schedule," van Munster says in a phone interview. What's more, he says, "the show is ready to go. We're editing it right now. But it's fresh off the presses, no doubt about it."

Eleven teams of two in various existing relationships are off on the race, which begins from the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles and travels immediately to Shannon, Ireland, an island the show hadn't visited in its 11 previous seasons.

"I never wanted to go to Ireland," van Munster says. "I thought it was kind of dull."

Logistics are a big portion of producing "The Amazing Race" worldwide, an endeavor that can be trying in some corners of the globe.


"We're on the African continent in a country you can't pronounce the capital of," van Munster says. "We're in the middle of nowhere in some places, where people have never seen television before -- and these are the people who are our local support staff."


More often, there is a worldwide recognition of "The Amazing Race" from its screenings in other countries.


"In India last season, we were at the airport and someone there said, I thought those people got voted off last week.' We were shooting the all-star edition and they were watching the previous season."


And if writing isn't part of the show, a lot of the creativity for producers comes in not only the travel and the tasks but the casting.


Among the standout teams are the vividly attired Goth couple from Louisville, Ky., and all manner of dating couples, pairs of friends and sisters (but, to level the playing field, no young male teams).


It's good to have new people, van Munster says.


"I don't care for the all-star editions," he says. "We always find great new contestants. I'd rather see them. If you go with people who have done it before, they think they know all tricks of the trade."


Another season that didn't work sent families of four on the race, he says. For one thing, it was tough to track 44 people, he says. For another, there was a lack of exotic locations in a race that stayed pretty much in North America.


This year, there will be five new countries, including Lithuania and Croatia.


There are other changes this season, chief of which is the elimination of the non-elimination stops. This means a team will be cut every week of the 10-week run.


But "Race" as a show has never lost in the Emmy category in which it has been nominated for five consecutive years: Outstanding Reality Competition Program.


"I'm always very surprised," van Munster says of the wins. "But for us it's a tremendous honor. The academy really sees what it takes to do the show."

10 week run does conflict with presumably later statements that it is an 11 leg race unless there is a two leg week.

Several references to the Amazing Race in this week's "30 Rock".  (I just watched it today.) 

Tina Fey thought two middle eastern types were acting suspicious, when in fact they were making tapes in attempt to get on our favorite show. 

Hilarious result, as she "named names" & they were "detained" (with all that that entails  :o) & didn't make it on the show (& came back a little miffed).
