Well, I can't really contribute much but apparently, there's a Singapore $2 Note/Bill in that picture...  :lol: Not sure if it means anything (highly skeptical and unlikely, IMO) But yup, worth a heads up.  ;D

From the press release:

Quote
Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Amy Chacon are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

Elise got another promotion. Previously she was listed as a producer in the early seasons, and then as a co-executive producer.

Since TAR really was her idea, it's about time she got the EP title.

EW magazine scan

Contestants in The Amazing Race;s 15th installment begin their frenzied sprint around the world in Los Angeles and immerdiately jet off to Toyko, where things get rather spicy. "We threw'em right in the middle of a Japenese game show , where there's a couple hundred people cheering them on and jsut going berserk," says exec producer Bertram Van Munster."They have to eat this unbelievable wasabi bomb. And that's just the introduction!" The 21 day race, which also hits countries as Estonia, offers and array of contestants including Harlem Globetrotters, female professional poker players (who prove to be "tough as nails"), a man with Asperger's syndrome, and yes, a highly combustible husband/wife tandem. ("This guy was so frustrated with something, I thought he was going to break his hand," notes Van Munster.) And we're extremely curious to watch the roadblock: "We have a challenge that involves 2,000 animals," boasts van Munster. "I have tried this for years and finally pulled it off. It will make you laugh and cry."

:yess: to the DUCKS!! I agree that this is a very good possibility... "herding ducks".

And I wonder if the combustible team could be Lance and Keri?? They weren't married then, but are now so could also be perhaps considered the husband/wife team... could be a BVM taking liberties quote.

Brian didn't give me the "highly combustible" vibe in their video, but Lance? Maybe!  All spec on my part...

Who in Chateau's video audio are they referring to as the "tightly wired" guy....might be the same.

And :eww   I hate wasabi!!

At this point, I know that AR15 is not going to the Philippines. The Duck Farm concept has been unused before in AR5. All 4 teams in episode 11 had the DETOUR option of herding 1000 ducks from one pen to another 50 yards away. Not one was interested, so we did not get to see this DETOUR. The other option was the infamous muddy field to be plowed by a human guiding an ox and that led to an Amazing Race legend.

Amazing Show 'The Amazing Race' Set For 15th Season On CBS
September 14, 2009 3:24 p.m. EST


Matt Aug - CNS Special Contributor
Los Angeles, CA (AHN) - It took amazing people to create a show like The Amazing Race.

The show has enjoyed a remarkable run by almost any standard, with its 15th installment set to begin September 27 on CBS.

The driving force behind the show is Elise Doganieri, a co-creator of the reality program along with her husband Bertram van Munster, a former producer of another long-running reality series, 'Cops'.

The Amazing Race takes diverse teams of two people from across the United States and literally has them 'race' across the world in a series of trips with mental and physical tasks interwoven in each episode.

Ably hosted by the cool but approachable Phil Keoghan, The Amazing Race has become a winner with TV viewers and critics alike with seven Emmy wins, including all six "Outstanding Reality-Competition Program" since the category was created.

Ratings and awards can come and go, however, so the show must credit something larger for its sustained success: heart.

"I used to complain there was nothing good on television," Doganieri said in a recent phone interview on her way to her Los Angeles offices. "So I had the opportunity to do something about it."

Although Doganieri has been around the world in her travels, she has not forgotten her roots.

Doganieri grew up in Port Jefferson Station, a formerly small town on the eastern part of Long Island, New York where she attended the Comsewogue School District.

While she has worked with some of the most established people in television, like the show's executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and Amazing Race airs on the legendary CBS network, Doganieri still appreciates the shows reach to the "average" viewer.

Doganieri is quite proud, for instance, that a teacher she had utilizes the show as a learning tool in her classroom.

"I was so honored that one of my elementary school teachers, Mrs. Gold, reached out to tell me she discusses the show with her students," Doganieri said. "I think we created a show that is inspirational and has had a positive effect on people around the world."

That won't change this season, either, as The Amazing Race will still do what it has become famous for; pulse-pounding, beat-the-clock competitions.

Doganieri said new elements will also be introduced into the show to keep it fresh and potentially attract more viewers.

"Although the show has gotten big we need to remain creative," Doganieri said. "There is a major twist coming to the show this season, for instance, something that will shock viewers."

'Shock value' is not something one thinks of when it comes to The Amazing Race, but leave it to Doganieri to chart an exciting new course for the show.

When it comes to reality television the Amazing Race is a rather amazing show, and the humble and appreciative Doganieri must take her share of the credit for that.

Matt Aug is AHN's Sports Editor and attended Comsewogue Junior High School with Doganieri.

This morning's Newark Star-Ledger had an article by national TV critic Alan Sepinwall projecting who will win the Emmy award in several categories. Two of those categories are near and dear to our hearts. Sepinwall projects that:

The Amazing Race will win Outstanding Reality-Competition Program

and Phil Keoghan will win Outstanding Reality-Copmetition Host.

Let's hope he is right!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Phil Keoghan ("The Amazing Race"): Bonnie's favorite reality show is back with a whole new season, all new teams, and host Phil Keoghan is back to tell us all about it. Of course, the big question is: can he and Bonnie get through the interview without flirting?

Probably nothing new, but a CardPlayer interview regarding Maria Ho on TAR
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

She said she has lived 'in the city' for the last five years.  So from Marin county point of view that would be SF.

I had 2 sets of friends from SF who tried out in the past, both didn't make it. I think they were going for the comedic angle, as they are sort of goofy looking.

This looks promising: http://www.dealbase.com/blog/?p=1305

Oh yeah, I remember running across that. 

We speculated that she had pre-written several blog entries and set them up with timed release while she was out of town.
