Ally would've been perfect for the race actually, her personality is not suited for a 'serious' game like the Mole. Her antics would have been hilarious on the race providing she had the right partner and the right teams to piss her off! :funny:

Seven will probably be looking to cut costs if they bring the race back but hopefully that doesn't mean cutting down the number of episodes or exotic destinations too much. That is if Seven can still keep a hold on it and 9 doesn't offer something better as they'd probably be in contention for it.

As I said before, I speculate less episodes/legs and one less team but hopefully the same quality production.

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)

Please bring TARAus to syndication in the United States! I really hope it happens, but I am doubtful it will. I doubt CBS would pick it up for syndication, as they haven't done their own. Maybe GSN could pick it up? They have done early seasons of The Amazing Race before it was dropped. GSN has is also picking up a non-US TV show, in The Chase. I can be hopeful!

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. 

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.

Sure we would! :lol:

New Zealand should do their own TAR. :lol: :funny:

Although it would be hilarious listening to all the accents. <3

Samual approves, and yeah, I don't like the idea of mixing it, but I'd watch a TARNZ.

I think TARAu allows permanent residents (of 2 years or more) to apply for the show so even if you don't want citizenship you can still apply for the show.

Well if they would be so kind as to lower the age limit to 18, I could apply. ;)

This article might be a ray of hope.

Quote
When Seven announced a reboot of The Mole, fans got excited.

It had been 8 years since we saw the competition show, hosted for 4 seasons by actor Grant Bowler and 1 by Tom Williams.

Such was the enthusiasm for the show that it regularly topped polls on this site gauging viewer anticipation. But since the show debuted, the reaction has been less than enthusiastic, reflected in overnight ratings and rescheduled by Seven from 3 nights a week to just 1.

But those same viewers have also been calling for the return of The Amazing Race Australia, shelved for the year in favour of The Mole.

In its first season TARAu did great business in an early timeslot against MasterChef Australia, with solid ratings plus plenty of buzz in media and social. Last year it faced stiff competition from The Voice on Nine and was moved to a 9pm timeslot following Australia’s Got Talent, which attracts an older demo. It even went into a hiatus during the Olympic Games making it harder for the audience to connect.

The Amazing Race Australia proved to be a rare case of a local series adaptation being just as good as the original, backed up by an International Emmy award, an AACTA Award, plus Director’s Guild nominations and two Asian TV Awards. It was the first Reality show to film in Cuba and of the international Amazing Race franchise, it remains the only international version to race in Israel, outside of the local Israeli version.

You can also see its legacy in the casting of other hit Seven shows: My Kitchen Rules and House Rules now cast their couples with Amazing Race-like branding, sometimes even down to the colour coding.

With so many accolades, it begs the question, why is Seven holding off a third season? It even called for contestants last year for a third season.

And if they don’t want the show, could another network pick it up?

The short answer to that is: nope, not yet.

Seven still retains rights to The Amazing Race brand and has a close relationship with format-holders Disney. Co-creator Bertram van Munster knows Seven has been with the Race since day one and is fond of Seven CEO Tim Worner. But he was also a consultant on the Australian series and keeps a close eye on the show’s performances around the world, including time slot moves and audiences.

Disney declined to comment for this article.

activeTV, which produced TARA, has since produced versions in The Philippines, Ukraine, Israel and is planning another in Asia.

activeTV also declined to comment.

Fortunately, Seven did comment when approached by TV Tonight.

“It’s one of our favourites here at Seven and is under consideration for 2014,” a spokesperson said.

So over to you, dear reader.

Should Seven return The Amazing Race Australia next year?

If I remember correctly it was 18 when they originally opened applications for Season 1 but then they upped it to 21 where it has stayed since. :tup:

Looks like the race will be back on! The Mole is dead and buried... But it's just a matter of when?

The casting in both of TAR Australia's seasons were 2 of the best overall ever IMO (especially 2)
GamerFan's TAR 7 Continents (Jackie 6, Laina 7, Leg 11: 3rd)
SamualDude's TAR:NZ (Dawn 3, Jennifer 1, Leg 4: 2nd )
Kandace's The Mole: German Deceit: Max Black (Top 5)
Racer's Survivor Armenia: Daria (Sevan) (Top 10)
