Amazing Race Australia now filming

Spoiler: Filming is now underway on the next season of The Amazing Race Australia.
By the look of this photo contestants were at Sydney Airport checking into a counter for Philippine Airlines for a 12:10pm flight to Manila.
The Seven show is expected to be filming for the next few weeks.

Last time this brought about a couple of spoilers from the forum comments. Keep an eye out just in case.

I think we've just got a new crew in the house...  :)

[PROFILE DELETED]

ETA :

I assumed that they barely start doing the editing process...maybe just get back from holiday and rest from filming...

anyway, just curious, how long does it take from the editing to become a 'finish-product', 3-4 months??

Grant Bowler Signs On for Lead in Syfy’s “Defiance”

GRANT BOWLER SIGNS ON FOR LEAD IN SYFY’S UPCOMING EPIC SCIENCE FICTION SERIES, DEFIANCE
Bowler to Play Jeb Nolan in Groundbreaking Series Set to Unite Television and Online Gaming for the Very First Time

New York – January 17, 2012 – Syfy has inked actor Grant Bowler to star in Defiance, a groundbreaking science fiction series that will unite television and massive multiplayer online (MMO) gaming for the very first time. The visionary enterprise is in collaboration with Trion Worlds, with the Syfy series and Trion’s multi-platform shooter MMO poised to debut simultaneously.

The announcement was made today by Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content for Universal Cable Productions, which is the studio for the project. “Grant’s charismatic charm and his depth as an actor make him the perfect anchor as we build the ensemble for this sweeping adventure series,” said Stern. “We’re very excited to have him join us on this incredible journey.”

The New Zealand born Bowler is well known for the recurring role on Ugly Betty (2008) as Wilhelmina Slater’s love interest, Connor Owens, and for the role of Cooter, the leader of the werewolf biker gang in the HBO series True Blood (2010) and Captain Gault in ABC’s Lost (2008). Bowler’s other notable roles include movies such as Atlas Shrugged (2011) and Killer Elite (2011). He will next be seen in indie movie, City of Gardens (2012). Bowler is represented by Don Buchwald & Associates / Fortitude in USA and Sue Barnett & Associates in Australia and managed by Untitled Entertainment.

Penned and executive produced by legendary sci-fi TV writer Rockne S. O’Bannon, (Warehouse 13, Alien Nation, seaQuest DSV and Farscape), Defiance will be directed by Scott Stewart (Legion, Priest). It is slated to commence production April 2012 in Toronto.

Set in the near future, Defiance introduces a world where humans and aliens must learn to live together on an exotic new Earth that has been transformed by alien terra-forming machines.

Bowler plays Jeb Nolan, the law keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oasis of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world, bringing him to the town where his peacekeeping skills make him a valuable addition this new community.

The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe, evolving together over time to tell an overall story that is more powerful together.

The above website predicts that TARAus 2 will premiere on Monday April 16 at 8.30pm and that TAR20 will air in Australia "Within 1-2 weeks of when it airs in the US - possibly on 7mate again".

This is totally unconfirmed but just throwing it out there! :)

This happened is US Amazing Race 15, so it could certainly happened in ARAus 2.

Wow, this may be their idea of stepping it up from the first season to get more ratings. Not sure if it'll work but hopefully it does and is a sign of a more dramatic season than the first. They need bigger personalities if you ask me (that still are 'Aussie' enough not to piss the majority of viewers and force them to turn their tellies off).

VERY sorry to see this stupidity continued on.

gosh darn it, I thought this was just an overly cruel twist in season 15 and completely unnecessary. To me, it's gimmicky, like the hazard from season 19 and maybe the switchback from season 15.

Starting Line Elimination rage! :flipper (:;) :gaah: :groan:
Bring on the 21!

The line about the starting line elimination has since been deleted, and searching the site for TAR US shows that they're only up to TAR 16. It's plausible that a webmonkey copy-pasted from their TAR15 blurb and forgot to delete it when changing the host's name and player's nationality.

Teams are being announced through the media!

Amazing Troy twins add sexy new reality to The Amazing Race Australia
Quote
THE reality TV race is testing the endurance levels of some viewers (and TV critics).

Now Channel 7 is bringing out its secret weapons in the shape of sexy and super fit cheerleading twins from Sydney.

Meet Michelle and Jo Troy, sisters who take on the world in the second series of The Amazing Race Australia, expected to return to Seven next month.

The 26-year-olds have experience entertaining crowds as part of the Flames cheerleading squad for the St George Illawarra Dragons.

The twins said their TV challenge had been daunting.

"It's about endurance," Jo, the 2011 Cheer Girl Of The Year, said.

Seven has also begun promoting its blockbuster UK drama, Downton Abbey and this week confirmed a visit by actors Emily Vancamp and Josh Bowman, stars of its US hit, Revenge.

Channel 10's response to Nine's juggernaut The Voice will lean on the beautiful people of The Shire and the reality phenomenon, MasterChef Australia.

COUSINS Adam and Dane are focused on the prize for the new season of The Amazing Race Australia ... well, almost.

"Dane's a hopeless navigator. He's always too busy checking himself out in the rear-vision mirror. Mr Vain!" said merchant seaman and father-of-two Adam about his 29-year-old cousin whom he grew up with in Tweed Heads.

"Vain Dane", who now works in Brisbane as a cardiac scientist, said his goal on the series which sends teams on a mad dash around the world would be to prove he can go at least 24 hours without looking at his reflection.

"We're very competitive, down to our bones," Dane said. "We both realise our strength is we're young and fit. If it comes down to the crunch and we have to do something to push ourselves through, we will race hard to win."

The indigenous duo will be up against 11 other teams of two, including the only other contestants from Queensland, newly engaged couple Kym, 46, and Donna, 42.

The Brisbane pair, with their rockabilly style and passion for jive dancing, describe themselves as "a couple of old knuckleheads in love".

It was that spirit that helped them through last year's devastating Brisbane floods.

"We both lost our jobs," Donna said. "I couldn't find anywhere to live. I had no job which has never happened to me before. We were in a mess."

Adam and Dane have also had a hard time in the past, losing a best friend in the Bali terrorist bombings. It made them appreciate the importance of friends and family. "We're as close as brothers and we want to live every day like it's our last," Dane said.

The new season of The Amazing Race Australia returns soon to Seven.

I will kill 7 if they put this up against the voice.

Cool bilboard. Nice find.

Lets try to work out when and in what timeslot it will air.

It wont be Monday or Tusday when the The Voice (The Voice is scoring over 2.5 million an episode, which is AMAZING in Australian ratings. So puting it up agianst it will be ratings suicide).

It wont be Friday (AFL on 7 in Melb, Ade and Per markekts) and probabily wont be Satarday or Sundays(I dont think it suits it  in Australia).

At Wednesday 8:30 7 is airing Revenge when its normal timeslot in Monday 8:30.
Which I think means 7 wants to warm up this timeslot for The Amazing Race Australia. 

Tell me what you think.
