Tonight is the 2012 Logie TV WEEK Awards in Crown Casino, Melbourne...

2012 MOST POPULAR REALITY PROGRAM NOMINATIONS :

Beauty And The Geek Australia (Channel Seven)
MasterChef Australia (Network Ten)
My Kitchen Rules (Channel Seven)
The Block (Nine Network)
The X Factor Australia (Channel Seven)

MOST POPULAR REALITY PROGRAM
Winner: MasterChef Australia (Network Ten)

I cant belive that TAR AU is nominated too the show is deffanrty better then MC, The Block, BATG and TXF and is at the very least on Par with MKR .

Sidenote: I dont know what Logies your watching but i saw the The Block win. Shelly even triped on the steps. Its ironic because as well as co host of The Block she also host Funnist Home Videos.

That is just disgraceful... don't understand how TARAus won't even be nominated at the very least... :gaah: MasterChef, The Block and X Factor are just eww :crazy: , but I enjoy the other two.
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

I am really disappointed, all the shows that were nominated were filmed in like a giant house studio

The Amazing Race Australia was filmed across 4 continents
enough said.

Does anybody know how long the Titanic series is, and for how many weeks is it going to air? I suppose that TARA 2 will air after that, hold it any longer and people will start asking whats going on!

Also, I was having a look at the correlation between the last filming date and the first air date for the US season. The average gap is about 6 months, although a few seasons had a shorter gap - Based on this we could say that the gap should be a maximum of 7 months, which even seems a bit long for me - Depending on the titanic run we could be seeing the race very soon, as filming reportedly ended on 13th of December - That means that we should be seeing it in May, or at worst early June!!!!

Cant wait, should be a great season - Even though im a 15 year old aussie i still love the american version a little bit more than the australian one - In the meantime, go Mark & Bopper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

It's 3 episodes I believe. A great show nonetheless, but come on TARAus2!

Intrasting theory

Not sure if its accurate but I think that it could work out. Also, if TARA 2 replaces titanic in the same timeslot, it would be followed by TAR 20... would get the viewers up for the last few episodes!

Based on history my theory should be pretty good, fingers crossed!

7 did start TAR AU while TAR 18 was still airing. Oddily on different nights and on different channels TAR AU was on Mondays at 8:30 on the main channel (7) while TAR 18 was on Sundays at 6:30 before the week hiatius and Wednesdays at 7:30 on 7 mate after the hiatius.

True, but it was a massive error for 7 to put one of the best seasons on 7 mate!!! loved it so much i bought a silly set top box thing and stayed up late to watch it! i think 7 have realized their error, and I think it would add to ratings, and general interest, of the american season... would also ensure some good first up ratings for the next US season, as people would have seen it straight after the aussie one, and probably liked it! they would then tune into the US one, and hopefully this would lead 7 to put it in a resonable, 8 or 9.30 timeslot!

The Amazing Race Australia

Join Grant Bowler, as 22 Aussies get ready to conquer the world for the second time when The Amazing Race Australia returns.

12 teams stand ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime but only 11 will make it past the starting line.

The adventure will see teams crisscross the globe, unsure of what challenges lie ahead. What they do know is that the race will be fastpaced and unrelenting. It will test their ability to work together as a team, challenge their personal relationships and provide life-changing experiences. Along the way they’ll confront fears, develop confidence, experience new cultures and make lifelong friends.

Coming soon.

http://www.tvnz2012.co.nz/detail.php?id=181

For what it's worth, the line about 12 teams being cut down to 11 has been removed. Either TVNZ is in strife for exposing the twist before Channel 7 could, or they've made an error.


This... however remains on another media, and yet they make a speculation about the 11 teams who passed the starting line...  :ascared

Amazing Race Australia spoiler
By David Knox on April 13, 2012 / Filed Under News 5

Spoiler: TVNZ is already promoting the second season of The Amazing Race Australia as “Coming soon.”

“Join Grant Bowler, as 22 Aussies get ready to conquer the world for the second time when The Amazing Race Australia returns.

“12 teams stand ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime but only 11 will make it past the starting line.”

That either means one team is eliminated in a starting line challenge, or someone has an almighty accident before they can even get going. I’m tipping it’s the former.


Seven is promoting the show too, but there’s no start date yet with Titanic in the Wednesday timeslot next week.

It's their speculation, and should not be taken into consideration I guess, I'm just sharing what I read.. ;D

You missed some too! It's Woolloomooloo  :lol3:

Late Edit: This is purely speculation, but I'm just going to throw it out there and say that there still could be a 12th team as reported by the Courier Mail (who would have a press kit with all the info on the teams) but instead of being eliminated at the starting line, they are added after the starting line.

Sorry for double posting, but I just realised that the photo was taken at Mrs. Macquarie's Chair. Garden Island doesn't have a grassy patch that faces out to the Opera House and could produce that perspective.

Here is where that photo was probably taken: http://g.co/maps/6fs9e

But whether it's the starting line remains to be seen.

To me, the photo of Sydney in the background looks like its blue screen. Im not sure they actually took a real photo there. It would have been far too dangerous with all the tourist around.

Take a look at Zouly's post here:

Looks pretty real to me.

I am just mad we missed them. :lol:

This is a far-out hypothesis, but I seem to remember something on either an Amazing Race or Amazing Race Asia where a task was to maneuver a car out of what essentially was a puzzle. The screenshot marked 0:38 looks like it might be that sort of task.
