Crowds hungry for Amazing Race Australia
By David Knox on May 24, 2012 / Filed Under News, Top Stories 0
They were all smiles last night as The Amazing Race Australia previewed their first episode to contest winners at Crown’s Village Cinemas, but things are about to get a whole lot more competitive when Seven’s Race begins on air next week.

In attendance last night were contestants Paul and Steve, James and Sarah, Ross and Tarryn, Shane and Andrew from Victoria, plus Sticky and Sam from Tasmania. The night was hosted by Price is Right announcer Brodie Young.

The 90 minute episode turns it on once again with spectacular shots, crazy challenges, slick editing and a cast that looks ready to implode. The first challenges range from zany to squeamish to exhausting. And the crowd were laughing in all the right spots. If you enjoyed last year’s series, buckle yourself in for another wild ride. ActiveTV have done it again.

As evidence of the show’s appeal, Seven advertised free tickets on their website, instead of liaising through a radio station, and netted more than 5000 requests.

The Amazing Race Australia premieres at 9pm Wednesday on Seven.

TWO NEW vids up on the website:

1. This season's opening titles (which are as awesome as last season's)
2. a sneak peek (slightly longer version) which is Sarah trying to catch the pig, her skirt flies up, she's wearing a g-string and... you know what happens

Support for villain Paul on The Amazing Race

Confidential reporter From: Herald Sun June 30, 2012 12:00AM

VICTORIA's teams have rallied behind villain Paul Montgomery as competition intensifies on The Amazing Race Australia.

Montgomery was accused of bulldozing by Grace Caristo in last week's episode, but couple Sarah Roza and James Kingsbury have dubbed her a "disgrace".

"She lied about Paul pushing her over and she's going to get her come-uppance and Australia will give it to her," Roza said.

Father and daughter Ross and Tarryn Thornton also came out fighting in support of Montgomery.

"The manipulation and things that's going on now . . . she handled herself wrong," Tarryn said.

The four Victorian teams caught up for lunch yesterday in Southbank.

Exactly!! but one thing I don't understand is that in the confessionals, Paul talks as if he did knock Grace over.. confusing  :groan:

I've noticed everyone commenting about Paul's actions in the Paul and Steve thread, but through the week i've checked out Tarryn and Sarah's twitters and they've had a huge discussion about how Grace is 'fake' and she went on the show for fame and she made up the whole pushing incident  :(

Possibly taking grabs from the confessions about the pot smashing?

Notice in the supposed confession about Grace, Paul talked about his backpack knocking her over, and we DID see Paul's pack displacing a few pots in the India leg.

VERY strange for the racers to be bickering like that over twitter, though. Don't they usually get along reasonably well after the show?

And someone should have told me they were in Melbourne, I would have said hello.

I find it weird that the teams talking about the incident weren't even there... ??? unless I'm missing something... ???

The only teams who were there running with Grace and Paul were Michelle & Jo and Lucy & Emilia, so I think they would be able to give the most accurate account of the situation. :tup:

From my understanding, all teams arrived at the Roadblock at essentially the same time.

Hmmm... in that case, I'm not sure what to make of that article... ???

I'm of the opinion that Paul was at fault entirely, but clearly the other teams aren't all thinking that way. ???

It is very, VERY strange that no footage of it was shown either. You would think they'd show it if something had happened. Also add into the fact that Lucy and Emilia who were seen to be right behind them looked genuinely bewildered at what Grace was yelling about and it seems very suss.

Yeah, I was expecting to see some footage of the situation - whether it was a fall or a push - but we got absolutely nothing... :(

Obviously Paul did hit/knock/bump/touch/brush her - at least to some small degree - because he was claiming that he accidentally ran into her, but I wish there was some footage!!! :gaah:

My question: If Paul really didn't do anything to Grace, then why was Lucy of Emilia (I can't tell the difference! :lol:) trying to separate Grace from Paul like they would fight more? Also, maybe all teams in support are biased considering they are all from Victoria. :duno: Who knows.

Grace was screaming her head off. That would be cause to try and separate the two in my mind. Though it does make me think of another question that needs answering given the lack of footage- We see Paul state that he tried to apologise straight away, which shows that he obviously thought there was something to apologise for.

I can't see that whole article, but remember Lucy and Emilia gave a conf about Grace's "really bad fall".

Was I the only one that heard Paul saying that he tried to apologize to Grace immediately after that incident?
I believe it was accidental.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
