Credits to Peach!

The person who wrote this review... don't seem too nice. :(

He is very critical (personally I agree) of the Race because of how fast it has become. Remember Season 5 (the first season I watched) it went smoothly, told a story etc. Recent seasons have been rushed.

Andy Denhart is perhaps the dean of writers covering the Amazing Race. He goes back to its beginning. Races now are compressed to about 21 days when they used to take around 23 days in the "good old days". This has surely been done to minimize production costs, so I am willing to accept it on behalf of a more economically successful Amazing Race.

Here is an article from page 91 of last week's issue (Sept. 19-25) of TV Guide. Note particularly the comment ab out Tunisia. Could they be talking about AR1 or is it really AR19?

"What's new this season? The locations! Among the new stops on the Amazing Race  are Indonesia, Belgium, Denmark and Malawi. The last country particularly provides 'some really fun challenges that are extremely local in nature' promises exec producer Bertram van Munster.'We have people from a high-tech society like ours going to a place where everything is borderline no-tech. There are some interesting reactions." Van Munster has added a new wrinkle in the game, The Hazard, but will only reveal 'it will immediately impact the teams.'

These 11 teams, which include alums Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, a pair of professional snowboarders and two male flight attendants, all have at least one thing in common: Nobody could handle the heat and humidity they encountered in Tunisia(???).

Even after putting Racers through their paces for a decade, Van Munster still marvels at how many manage to make similarly wrong turns. 'People make the same mistakes all the time' he says with a laugh.'They don't read the clue. They get impatient. They run to stuff that is complicated because they think it's easier. Every episode they'll be a moment when I say 'What? Where are they going with this?' That always amazes me."


Does this mean Tunisia was a leg for AR19? If so, it would probably be between southern Africa (leaving Malawi via either Johannesburg or Nairobi and Denmark because it makes little sense to fly from Thailand to Malawi via Tunisia, adding several thousand miles.

I'm not sure which thread it was, but we talked about this last week. The general consensus is that it was just a massive mistake, and they meant to write Indonesia. If it was indeed referring to a later leg, then the line about all 11 teams being in Tunisia would clearly be wrong.

Hmmm...a specific reference to Phuket and not just Thailand. Could that mean a second Thailand leg is coming?

Hmm...

They shouldn't have been eliminated by then, have Racers ever done a CBS appearance before they were eliminated?

They are exempt from elimination on the October 30 telecast? It sounds like they are toast!

They were reportedly sighted in Denmark.

I can see that happening this time because of the promos and press info alone. I'm not sure why TPTB pushed them so much if it is a mid-season elimination but who knows. It certainly opens up the possibilities.
