The Amazing Race Canada to debut in 2013, reports claim
Get training, Canada: According to a report on Popgoesthenews.com, CTV is set to announce that The Amazing Race is headed north of the border.
The website reports that the series will be announced after a Dec. 2 airing of the U.S. show, via a taped message from show host Phil Keoghan. Canadians have been thusfar ineligible to compete on the series because, among other things, show producers were concerned that Canadian passport holders would be able to clear customs checks faster than their U.S. counterparts.
It’s not the first foray into Canada for Keoghan and the show: segments for the series fifth and eighth season were filmed in Canadian locations, and in 2007, Keoghan brought No Opportunity Wasted, based on his book of the same name, to the CBC.
An air date for The Amazing Race Canada has not been announced, nor has a host. The CBS series, now in its 21st season, currently airs on CTV in Canada
