I found this sometime ago, something TAR 14 related and some Elise news that wowed me ~
June 23, 2008
The top half of Friday was spent at the offices -- located strategically close to LAX -- of Bertram Van Munster and Elise Doganieri, the married creators and producers of CBS' "The Amazing Race."Currently, they've got the 13th cycle in post-production and are in pre-planning on the 14th
. They're also in production on two fronts, as Doganieri is, let's see, 11, 10, 9...8 days away from the due date on her daughter.
As, I was told, the first reporter allowed into the inner confines of "Race" HQ, I'll save most of the deets for my upcoming story, but I can say that the visit was informative and charming, the cuppa coffee was quite good, and there was a very large moose.
Van Munster and Doganieri rank among the smartest and nicest folks I've met in the TV biz, and they're ferociously competent. Just imagine what it takes to send teams of contestants, trailed by cameramen and producers, along with support staff, on a breakneck journey around the world.
One thing's for sure, the next time I travel internationally, these are the folks I'd want telling me what to pack and what not to eat.source
