That looks like an all-female team that lasted till the HK leg in TARI. Hopes Michael leaves them alone. HOWEVER, if they indeed are a team on TAR US, then i think i'm going to totally root for them. They look like a Kami/Karli version but less clueless and can kick some asses! :sucks

I dont like them. They are wearing to much

Hi everyone. Long long time lurker and first time poster. Just would like to share with you guys some info about what has now been determined to be the Amazing Race Israel. The blonde all female team with the yellow backpacks were spotted in Sydney early this morning Sydney time (ard 2.30am) at Harry's Pies in Woolloomooloo, the very same spot where Chris & Alex had to do the fast forward in Season 2 of the American TAR.

I have a slightly picture of the girls taken from a mobile phone. Just wondering on how to attach the picture to the post.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

:welcome: to RFF dhall! And we would LOVE to see it! :hearts:

Here is how to attach a picture:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12375.0.html

or you can host it somewhere like tiny pic or photobucket and add the [img] code,
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12374.msg191066.html#msg191066

 or if it is easier for you can send it to the email in my profile and I'll post it for you?

we would LOVE to see it! I'm getting quite jealous for TARA 14 for the TARI race--they have some great locations!!  Guess you got to see them? Any more info? Any ideas what they were doing?

Thank you dhall for de-lurking with a bang!

Hi guys. Well the story is my flatmate so happened to be at the pie shop and noticed all the camera crew and he also saw the red and yellow flags marking the shop. So he immediately rang me and woke me up knowing that i was a huge huge fan of the show.

So i did what any normal die hard fan of TAR would do, which was to check this board to see if there has been any new sightings of teams. So from what i read in the previous page, what he saw was i assume the Amazing Race Israel.

Well a little more information on what my flatmate saw. He only noticed one team, which was the all blonde girl team with the yellow backpacks. He also noticed a board were there different times listed on it. Something like 6.00am, 6.15 am till 7 am i think. Still have to grill to get more information.

Anyways the picture i have is attached below. Will get more pictures and information of my flatmate if there is any.

:wohoo: :jumpy: :jumpy: :wohoo:

So TAR 14? In Phuket?? Oh happy days!!

Good job puddin!!  :hearts:
Oh someone would have found it eventually. Thanks to dhall's sighting this has to be us!!
is it for TAR 14 or TAR Israel?  That's confusing because both of them, I think right now they're now in the Asian side and simultaneously, they're both filming.  This related incident also been done last year and early this year when both TAR 12 and TARA 2 filming and they'd even went to a same country [that is Japan] where both of these season was featured and in this year, when TAR 13 and TARA 3 was also been filmed in India but obviously, they're on the different cities as they'd filmed and raced it.

And now, which country do you think they'll both racing in it in an Asian country for TAR 14 and TAR Israel but they're on a different cities?  I'm guessing they're probably in China or Japan right now because both of them are huge countries and plenty of urban cities out there.  You name it like Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and Kyoto. :umn:

p.s.
I want to see the 1st season of TAR Israel soon via bittorent, even though I can't even understand on Hebrew. :hearts:

Wait wait wait, dancing in Cape Town. Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong. Harry's Pies in Woolloomooloo.

Doesn't this sound awfully déjà vu?

Go, send our stalkers over to New Zealand!

From a porn blog  :lol: :-[ . I won't link to it but will assume its Israel's race?

 Amazing Race       
Today, 04:57 AM ( posted on Nov 16th)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I'm eating lunch at The Rocks in Sydney today, and I see some funny looking flags Red with a Yellow stripe through it. I ask my friend what they are and it turns out that they are filming part of The Amazing Race in the pub we are drinking in. Random smelly Americans come running into the place, disappear, come back later puffed out even smellier and then call for a taxi. As is the Australian thing to do, we heckled them as they ran passed and one of my friends nearly came to blows as a backpack of one of said smelly Americans nearly knocked over his beer. All in all a good day out, plus we got our mugs on TV.

Anyone else seen the filming of this quality TV show before, cause i can't believe how many f'cking people follow these morons around as part of the "production team".

Hi everyone. Thank you all for your very warm welcome. Also thanks again to georgiapeach for the information on how to post the picture.

Unfortunately i don't have much information to add on to what already i have mentioned. My flatmate said for as long he was there, (somewhere around 30 minutes), he only saw the one F/F team and they weren't doing much. Just sitting around (maybe waiting for the start time stated on the board?). The other teams could have been en route or at a hotel seeing that it was 2.30 am Sydney time.

He also said there was a bunch of production ppl there and the racers were cordoned off by some rope as can be seen from the picture. Onlookers were discouraged to interact or take photos of the team that was there.

Anyways thats all i have for now. Will probably post a couple more pics (just have to get it off my flatmates mobile) sometime tonight. Once again would like to state that you guys do a tremendously good job. So keep up the good. Now back to lurking.....

Two more sydney sightings:

Quote
It looks like next season the contestants on the Amazing Race will be going to Sydney.

They were filming in the Sydney Hilton on George St., right down town setting up as I was leaving. There is a clue box in the lobby and and then a number board near the elevators (lifts) where the contestants need to grab a number as they caught the far elevator. The board only had 5 numbers on it, so by the time they get there there must be only 5 teams left.

Yesterday there was a crew here that had shirts on about "climbing face first down the side of a building" not sure if they are related.

Lots of staff in the lobby keeping eye on the clue box, flags, etc. and keeping the last elevator locked up for use by the show.

So I am not sure if any of you watch the amazing race in Israel..

MOtsei shabbos we were walking around Sydney harbour, and we saw these people racing (looked like the tv show amazing race). My dh happened to hear them speaking in hebrew, so I said wow!! It's the Israeli version. So I tried to explain to him the show. Of course immediately he jumps to speak hebrew with them and gives a couple directions. LOL I can imagine the caption, "jewish man on street gives directions in sydney."

So we kept on walking, and my cute husband decides he wants to be on tv again.. so we walk back in the general direction.. This time I grab him to stop him, cause u know enough is enough.. This time they approached my husband and started speaking to him in english. Of course my dh shows off his hebrew again..lol he's so cute

Just read this about a possible Australian version of the amazing race. The Amazing race Israel is mentioned quite alot in the article.

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,24450552-7582,00.html
Quote

THE key obstacles to global format sales of US reality show The Amazing Race have been the sheer cost and logistics of sending a dozen couples to perform a series of strange tasks in 10 or more countries within a month and to film it.

But the Seven Network is understood to be reconsidering an Australian version after local production company activeTV filmed three Asian-based series on much less than the multi-million-dollar budget needed for the US version.

A Seven source said an Australian version was "on our development slate", but no deals were imminent, activeTV managing director Michael McKay said.

The 12th season of the US series averaged 830,000 viewers this year.

ActiveTV, which produces the Asian series through a Singapore joint venture with the US program's co-creator Bertram van Munster, is about to begin producing a new Israeli format, much of which will be filmed in Asia.

The company, which employs 18 people in its Melbourne head office and about 12 in Asia, has morphed from a sports and entertainment company into a reality specialist after producing the Australian legs of the US Race in series two and four.

The new version, to be filmed in Hebrew, will be the first non-English international series.

It will be called Ha'Merotz La'Million (The Race to the Million), referring to the prize of a million shekels that will go to the last couple standing.

McKay will say only that the series will launch "soon" with between 10 and 12 teams and an unnamed Israeli director.

"It's like the Greta Garbo of TV shows because so much of it is secret," McKay said.

"Even the crews don't know where they're going and they don't know where they're starting from."

Producing a series of The Amazing Race sounds almost as nightmarish as competing in it.

Potential locations are selected and scouted in about 40 days, and a string of local production teams are contracted to organise their legs of the race.

Senior production staff test most challenges, but McKay draws the line at bungee jumping.

"In the Asian version when we had the contestants eating bugs, we tried them," he said.

"There were crickets, cockroaches, a scorpion or two and a water bug: they were a bit chewy. We want to make sure that it's safe."

The most important element is selecting the teams, whoch are often couples but may be friends or family members.

Contrary to perceptions that the show chooses teams whose relationships will implode spectacularly under race conditions in front of the cameras, McKay looked for diversity and depth.

"The main ingredient is good chemistry," he said.

"You want light and shade and sweetness. Teams spit the dummy and walk out, or you'll see teams that become remarkably close.

"I love it when that happens but there are times when that pressure cooker situation highlights the things that you're not that keen on in your partner. Those emotions are very real."

Each team travels with a personal crew of two or three, charged with capturing such outbursts.

"We typically travel with a total crew of 100 as we move," McKay said.

"We pick up a lot of people on the ground. As the teams get eliminated, the crew becomes smaller." McKay said costs would be contained in the Israeli version by choosing "pre-existing" challenges, rather than building them.

There will be a few other differences.

Some countries, such as those that don't recognise Israeli passports, will be off-limits, and McKay is expecting cultural differences to play a big part.

"I'm expecting more open, honest, blunt and frank conversations between the teams," McKay said.

"I don't think they'll hold back in that respect."

Thanks, zacz. Some explanation:
  • A million New Shekels=a quarter-million US Dollars (give or take)
  • Spit the Dummy=throw a tantrum
  • Here is a list of countries that won't recognize Israel. I faced the same problem--in a smaller way--on my last trip to the area; the tour operator made sure Israel was the last country visited in the region.
  • Strictly speaking, A Corrida Milionaria was non-English speaking and international, spending the last couple legs in Chile.

I thought there will have someone to copy it to here
However nobody copy it :ascared.........so I help to copy it
This is a spoliers of Macau :yess:



Copy from Enter My World JonLover



Since a co-poster happened to see Amazing Israel in Macau, I think we have to separate their spoilers.

Michael McKay is also the executive producer so he's only re-using the locations he had for Amazing Race Asia.

Here are the photos posted by FLICKERS

I was in Macau last week, when I saw an Amazing RAce clue with dragons
neatly arranged at the Senado Square in Macau. Its Hebrew , and
apparantly Amazing Race Israel. I waited to see the real racers to the
extent of almost missing my flight, lol.The production team arrived
there 2 hours before the first team arrived. They arrived by taxi,the
cameraman and the one bringing the microphone (i dunno how you call
him)I reckon has a tough job running there and here, it was
intense.They dont allow taking pictures about the cameraman and the
contestant, but i have zoom lens, lol...The clue was in BRIGHT yellow
and black, dang it was REAL,lol.






the baldy man carrying the microphone, he has a tough job running there and here, with those microphone attached to a pole.


the dragon clues

I saw 2 national flags on that pictures above, one is South Africa and the other one is on Canada.  Since, they'd already went to South Africa before, is it a hint that they're final race of a country to be visited for TARI season 1 will be somewhere in Canada before heading back to their "Jewish" homeland, Israel? :duno:
