The “Race” is on: CBS’ Emmy-winning “The Amazing Race” doesn’t start its 15th run until Sept. 26, but the round-the-world reality series hit Southern Nevada last week for the season finale.
The WRP Group (short for Worldrace Productions, we presume) pulled a Clark County film permit to shoot Aug. 6-8 at McCarran Airport and at various Strip locations, including a pedestrian bridge and the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.
According to the Internet’s Reality Fan Forum, the final leg of the show’s international odyssey stretches from Prague to Las Vegas. (Interim stops include Tokyo, Dubai and Stockholm, online posters report.)
The show’s message board included an e-mail last week from the “TAR detective team,” who had “excellent reason" to believe the finale leg was “in or near Las Vegas,” with possible “tasks in the desert” as part of the climactic episode.source
