I thought I saw an Amazing Race team on Monday in Edinburgh. I actually just joined this forum just to see if anyone else had seen teams there as well.
My wife, our two boys, and my in-laws were checking out of our hotel to catch the 17:00 train to London.
We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express on Cowgate. We were walking out of the door around 16:00.
As we were all getting outside we noticed a bright light 10 yards away. There was a 2-man camera crew filming two people walking into the hotel. They went inside to ask the person at the desk something. The film crew stayed outside. From what I remember one of the persons was a blonde woman. In her 20's I think with a fair bit of makeup. I think the other person was a blonde woman as well, but to be honest they walked by us before I noticed that they were the focus of the film crew so the other could have been a bald man from what I remember!
What made me think they were Racers?
It was two people and a film crew of two.
They exited a brand new silver Ford hatchback. (Ford is the usual make for the races, yes?)
The Ford had a small yellow-red-yellow flag stuck on the inside on the windshield. Just like a little Amazing Race symbol.
They went into a Holiday Inn Express to ask directions. (Americans looking for something familiar?)
I asked one of the film crew if they were filming for the Amazing Race.
One replied, in an American accent, that they "wished" they were filming the Race, but they were filming some other "copy-cat" show.
I left it at that, wished the crew luck, and we headed off to Waverly station to catch our train.
I thought maybe I should get a photo of the team/crew/car, but then I thought better of it and just let them run the race if that's what was going on.
Did we see the Amazing Race? I suppose we'll have to wait to see if we're all on camera next season!
