WAIT - THERE’s MORE!!!
On the second to the last day in Siem Reap, Sara and I were enjoying a beer in the bar of our hotel. A bunch of men (lots of cute ones) started gathering, all part of some group. It sounded like they were talking fim and/or TV production and Sara and I were trying to listen in on their conversations. Just then, a big guy with a huge camera came in and so we had to stop him and ask.
He would only tell us that he was working on a documentary and played way to dumb about what the show was or if there was a host (job opportunity for me?) or what channel we could find the program on later. This made me curious because I know that film and TV people love to brag about their work and what their are producing. Him being so secretive made me question the program.
All week, Sara and I saw a special check-in desk for WRP. And onthe last day in Siem Reap, when I was at my computer, I did some research and found the answer - World Race Productions. As Sara and I were waiting to go to to the airport, I asked one of the hotel staff if WRP stood for World Race Productions and got a, “That’s correct.” And as we waited, we saw a WRP van pull up and two people get out with matching red t-shirts.
There’s no doubt in my mind that the Amazing Race was being filmed there. It’s quite a let-down, though to realize that the contestants and crew are put up in 5-star hotels like the Le Meridian in Siem Reap. Very disappointing!
