The Amazing Race Canada 1--Pre-Race Speculation
« on: November 21, 2012, 11:57:59 PM »
How could that become a reality and how could  Phil Keoghan, who is THE BEST host for The Amazing Race of ALL TIME, get to host it?

I would love to see you in Canada get your own version. If you don't then I would love to see a trans comemwealth version with you in Canada, the poms in UK and us in Australia (we do have our own version but it might not be renewed )

A Decade in the Making: CTV to Deliver Special On-Air Message to Canadians this Sunday, Dec. 2

CTV will deliver a special on-air message directed exclusively to Canadians this Sunday, Dec. 2 in a commercial break sometime between 8-9 p.m. ET. The message was taped in secret earlier this month at CTV headquarters by one of the most recognizable people on television, a multiple Emmy® Award-winning personality.

Leading up to the big reveal, viewers can share their guesses on Twitter about what this special message could be for a chance to win a special CTV prize package with the hash tag #CTVSpecialMessage.

If the host is Ben Mulroney... :groan: But so happy about this! Hopefully it won't turn out like all the other failed attempts of Canadian versions of shows... :res: If it's successful enough to last a few years, I might try applying for it. :lol:

If this turns out to be the real deal, I propose to abbreviate it as "TAR, EH?"
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

Well it's about time!  Especially since TAR is regularly one of the most watched shows, right? If not most watched some weeks.

Cool! The more TAR the merrier! There won't be a single week without a TAR airing somewhere in the world pretty soon hehe.

I'm assuming it'll run in the Summer so as not to clash with TARUS.  That's perfect since TARAu is taking a break apparently?

This Facebook message from November 4th looks more important now than it did at the time.

November 4th 2012 via BlackBerry Smartphones App
Just landed in Toronto with Phil from the amazing race!!! We are like best friends now....and by best friends, I mean I creepily took a blurry picture of him as I went down the escalator! Oh he's my favorite!!!


Back then I was thinking Phil was just pursuing some personal business or supporting one of his causes before TAR 22 started, but now it looks like he was possibly filming the announcement. However, this is just circumstantial evidence and doesn't prove anything. Maybe CTV is going to do a National Bingo Hour or Bowling For Dollars seven days a week or something like that. Or even Survivor Nunavik.

You're not funny.


What, you don't like William Shatner?  On a serious note who is a serious candidate to host?

Hopefully the announcement is for The Amazing Race Canada!  Even though I am excited at the thought of having a Canadian version, I am a bit worried.  Canadian reality tv competition shows do not tend to last very long and I fear that if TAR: Canada is given the green light, it could only last a few seasons at most before being cancelled (see Canadian Idol, SYTYCD: Canada, Canada's Got Talent).

The American version is consistently rated in the top 10 every week in Canada. Considering viewership was higher for the Australian version compared to the American version on Australia, a similar bump might make the series last longer.
