TAR Aus Media **may contain spoilers**
« on: November 06, 2010, 04:43:46 PM »
Television actor Grant Bowler will be the host of The Amazing Race Australia.

Seven Network made the announcement on Saturday, after production of the reality television show began earlier this week.

"This race is going to be enormous," said Bowler, who is fresh from a stint on US series True Blood.

"The route is simply amazing. We have a wonderful cast, with incredible diversity between the teams and within the teams," he said.

"There are some fantastic characters that are iconically and classically Australian."

The Amazing Race Australia continues Bowler's association with Seven, having started his television career on the police drama Blue Heelers, before hosting The Mole, working on Border Security, and more recently starring in the US series Lost and Ugly Betty.

"Hosting is something I haven't done in a long time, and I really enjoy it," he said.

"If you're going to do it, this is the show to do it on. The Amazing Race is the best format in reality television, and it's just incredibly exciting to be a part of."

The series will make its debut in 2011

Air date currently unknown. Intuition tells me that they will try to cash in on the returning racers of TAR 18 and put this series just after it.

Channel Seven programming article from Today Tonight Website. http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2011/02/seven-leads-with-australian-made.html

Quote
Season 18, which includes a Sydney stop, premieres in the US on February 20. But Seven also has The Amazing Race Australia which has internet forums buzzing with excitement. Mindful of internet spoilers for the US series, Worner says Seven is still mulling whether to premiere the Australian edition first.

“The very discussion that is going gangbusters in the blogosphere is also going gangbusters in the Seven Programming offices right now,” he says.

“It looks fabulous and the cast is very funny. They make you smile and you don’t really realise that you’re smiling.”

Hosted by Grant Bowler (Border Security, The Mole, True Blood, Lost, Outrageous Fortune), the Aussie race may also draw upon 7mate, but Worner won’t reveal how. Wherever it appears, it seems assured of a big audience.

“On the research we do it scores higher than any show on any network in terms of intention to view and yet we’ve hardly run any promos for it,” he says.

“I’ll say this there are some contestants who haven’t travelled very well. So there are some extremely funny moments.

Looks promising for a good series! Hope there is a series 2!!

The page at http://au.tv.yahoo.com/the-amazing-race/ has finally been changed from "Apps closed" to the TV promo of OzTAR.

In a fit of irony, I can't watch it until I get back home. Way to follow the CBS trend, channel 7.

The promo is nothing special - no footage, no date

Lol fail: http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2011/02/returning-the-amazing-race-on-7mate.html

It just says when it is gonna air  :lol:

NICE!
This is not exactly good news for everyone. 7mate is one of Channel 7s extra digital channels (not availble to everyone), and will compete will a lot of prime time shows on the main channels. Therefore there will be low ratings for the show. They obviously don't want to ruin the TAR Australia ratings by running both on the main channel with TAR overload.

It isn't much. Just some kangaroos bouncing past landmarks that look suspiciously like stock footage.

Not on a map of the world, no.

They bounce past things like the Arch de Triumph, That pointy cathedral in Moscow that I can't remember the name of, The Pyramids of Giza, etc.

I hope someone will be able to share the show with us when it airs. As y'all get promos, if someone can upload them, I am glad to screencap them. Just want someone to be ready... :tup:

CAPS!

This is a 20 second promo, and if you could see it moving, it would literally be kangaroos hopping across these landscapes and finishing with the same ending to the promos we already have.
