Grant said he would be more than happy to host a 3rd season if it fits in with his schedule. Though I do know about some other people being 'trained' for the hosting position in the past especially for the second season.

I don't remember his name but he was a retired AFL star looking to get into TV presenting and it wasn't Ben Cousins.

Well, hopefully there is a third season as I thought the second season was very strong!

I agree. Season 2 was comparable to some of the better TARUS seasons (minus some poor leg designs in the middle of the race) but did it get the ratings 7 wanted (even thought the show aired after Australia's Got No Talent for the 1st half of the season which was ratting badly last year and the timeslot changes to TARAU)

Someone might have a good speculation and/or explanation of what's happening in Melbourne CBD and Sydney CBD at the same time...

First, I thought it's a local race because they wear uniform, but then there's a logo (that seems a little legit/official) of TAR Australia...


Multiple sightings of contestants in Melbourne, Australia.

That's too far to be true?!   :ascared

'The Amazing Race' people running around Melbourne CBD right now. Wonder if they're legit.

Probably a local race. I don't think it would be smart for them to wear shirts advertising TARAus :lol:

But then, there's this thing that we called 'copyright', un-official organization/institution must have had permission from the franchise to print the logo on those shirts...

Maybe they're from radio crew or some sort... ???

There's no visible camera crews so its just an unofficial local race.

It happened in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Someone on the TARAU page said that the people were asked who they were from and they said SBS. I rang SBS today, and both Sydney and Melbourne offices had no idea about it.

I have it on good authority that if The Mole does not rate well, Channel 7 will film a new series of The Amazing Race - possibly even later this year, so it's ready to go early/mid 2014.
If The Mole rates well, Channel 7 will make another series of that instead. Likely due to the fact it is way cheaper to produce and make.

So if we want to see another series of The Amazing Race Australia we want to hope The Mole does not rate well.
It will be on 3 nights a week though, coming on after House Rules.

I hope there's another Channel willing to buy the TAR license from Channel-7

Maybe channel 9 or 10 wanna have a breakthrough..?!

The only channle that would make TAR other then 7 is Fox8 (On Foxtel). They are the only other channle that has the licence to air TARUS(they are currentily airing TARUS-18 on Thursdays)

I dont see The Mole working 3 nights a week. I don't think it will rate but who knows.

TARAU is so great a version that I love it more than TAR-US. Hope TARAU have its third season... But who knows? The Mole is also a great show, right?

At the rate the Mole is going, I do hope it continues to decline in ratings just so The Amazing Race Australia is brought back for a 3rd season. Stupid stupid move channel 7!

I have been talking to a lot of people and they prefer TARAus over The Mole because at the prescribed timeslot The Mole is currently getting (primetime 7:30PM) they have had to almost dumb down the entire gameplay to make it more 'family/kid friendly' and this has almost been taken in a mocking or comical approach from original diehard Mole fans. The race doesn't need to do that to be able to cater to everyone which is why even at the 9PM timeslot the second series premiered at last year it attracted more views than the meager 650k the latest Mole episode received!

The Race also has an eclectic mix of likeable characters and not so likeable villains but almost in a tongue-in-chic fashion (Paul acknowledge and almost accepted the role of the villain last season) and has a genuine rollercoaster of emotions whereas I am finding myself HATING the male contestants on The Mole and disliking a lot of the female contestants too (and the 3 episode a week format enhances this).

The Race should have NEVER been replaced with The Mole and I do hope 7 are paying the consequences for it now. They should've used the AGT budget for The Mole but keep TARAus and have them both airing around the same time but on different nights in my opinion (or at least one in the first quarter and the other in the next quarter) (and also getting rid of ridiculous [cheaper to produce but nevertheless moronic at best] shows like Please Marry My Boy and Beauty & The Geek Australia).

RANT over but I seriously do hope someone associated with 7 sees my post and brings The Amazing Race Australia back! :hoot:

I swear I used to prefer The Mole to The Amazing Race until I watched The Mole Australia season 6.

What a dumb show it is. No challenges is original. So slow-paced and dull. I'm very very disappointed.

Seven Network you killed my favorite show

With The Mole going down in the ratings in, my recommendation is to keep your ears open for season 3 speculation. I wouldn't be surprised if they downsize a little bit. I am thinking 10 teams with 1 from NZ to drum up excitement across the Tasman(like MKR3) and 11 legs instead of 12/13.  Hopfully the overall quality of the show does not suffer and I think I speak for all of us when I say 1 episode a week (#don'tmoleusagain7). Also I wouldn't be surprised if 7 try and get more syndication deals for TARAu to compensate for some of the shows budget (they recently sold the rights to air TARAu in South Africa)

NO. Please no. I don't really care much about less legs, but please not a team from NZ, we don't want to see that.

Would you rather TARAu not come back at all.

No of course I wouldn't, but mark my words, it won't happen. It's ridiculously gimmicky.
