Plaidmoon:
It's been a few days, so it's time for another rumored TAR version! This one comes from a person who lists himself on Twitter as a Casting/TV Director from Kiev.

Here's a tweet I found in Russian from a few days ago:

25 Jun Андрей Говоруха Андрей Говоруха ‏@AndreyGovoruha
- Планируете адаптировать крупные шоу? / - Мы собираемся адаптировать Amazing race. Это телевизионный квест, в кот... http://vk.cc/NGvxj

Google translates this to:

25 Jun Andrew Andrew Govorukha Govorukha @ AndreyGovoruha
- Planning to adapt the big show? / - We are going to adapt the Amazing race. This is a television adventure, in the cat ... http://vk.cc/NGvxj

If you go that link, it appears to be a Russian version of Facebook. He has a more complete message there. Here's the Russian version:

Andrey Govorukha
- Планируете адаптировать крупные шоу?
- Мы собираемся адаптировать Amazing race. Это телевизионный квест, в котором участникам за один месяц необходимо объехать весь земной шар. Для того, чтобы добраться до каждой новой точки участник должен разгадать задание, добежать до тайника, найти билет и бежать дальше. Участники – это пары. Пары друзей, пары в разводе, пары родственников и т.д. Со дня на день мы огласим кастинг.

In order to get to the point of each new participant has to solve the task, run to the hiding place, to find a ticket and run further. The participants - a pair. Pairs of friends, couples in divorce, a couple of relatives, etc. From day to day, we announce the casting.

He also posted this earlier in June:

I don't know what other projects he has worked on in the past and if he's a serious TV producer or someone trying to break into the field. I suspect these may be efforts to get backing to produce a TAR like show. He's also tweeting about a variety show and a business show, so he may just be throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks. 

I hope the TAR show gets picked up. We need more versions of TAR, partly because the goal should be 150 versions by 2015.   :iok

Then we'll be ready for a 24 hour a day TAR channel.  :haha

OK, I have to go work out more details / dream a bit more.  :nitenite:

Here's further information about TAR Ukraine. It sounds like they are casting contestants as best I can tell from a poorly translated article (in Ukrainian).

I suspect this means they want a team or two of media personalities and are having a special audition (yesterday) for them.
