Title: Australian Season 3 CONFIRMED for 2014!
Post by: RichInSydney on October 17, 2012, 05:21:57 PM
This is not good news...

Quote
The future for The Amazing Race Australia is unclear following Seven’s 2013 Programming launch in Sydney on Tuesday.
 
The show didn’t rate a mention in Seven’s Press Release despite the fact it has attracted a solid fanbase in just two seasons.
 
Sources tell TV Tonight that whilst Seven called for Auditions for a third series in August, so far it hasn’t locked onto a third season.
 
That’s despite solid reviews and a nomination for an International Emmy Award. The first season also attracted strong ratings, but the second suffered from multiple timeslots and a hiatus during the Olympics.
 
Applications close on October 30 with filming usually taking place in November / December.
 
The activeTV series, hosted by Grant Bowler, is every bit as good as the US version, so fingers crossed it wins a third season.
 
Seven did not respond to enquiries.

These shows also didnt get a mention at the Press Release
Quote

Deal or No Deal , Beauty and the Geek, Please Marry My Boy, Dinner Date, RSPCA Animal Rescue
and Australia’s Got Talent disbite getting a mention at the Press Release is still not 100% confermed for a season next year. If TARAU is going down then I hope it takes AGT down too (Its because of this (bleep) that TARAU had a bad rattings for the first few episodes and brought the average down).

If TARAU win their Emmey, Odds are we will see a Season 3. If not the fate of TARAU will hang in the balance.

I don't think it's looking good guys. The show costs so much to produce and ratings just weren't good enough this last season plus with all the new shows lined up in 2013 for 7 I think it's safe to say our beloved race has been replaced by another generic renovation show (House Rules?) or the cheaper to produce The Mole: Culture Clash. All they care about at this point is profit and money. So what if the race is being nominated for an international emmy? That means nothing unfortunately and realistically for us fans. It was good while it lasted  :'(

Post by: theamazingracer21 on October 19, 2012, 06:04:50 PM
Be positive. The show had great rattings but the the average was down because of AGT as a lead in for the first coulpe of eps.

We've seen the show potental In the rattings (1,000,000 +) and 7 should take the show back for at least a third season (with a good rattings lead in this time).

Yes

If the money to produce is the issue then let 1 or 2 NZ teams join in exchange for extra funding from the network in NZ .

They can also shothen the race from 12 to 10 legs, reduce the cast from 11 to 10 teams and strip a leg over 2 nights (like TAR Israil) to increase adverstising revene.

Stripping a leg over two nights doesn't increase the revenue, it just makes half the episodes anticlimaxes.

I'm hearing it's about 90% certain Seven plan on doing The Mole and TAR Australia in alternating years, with Grant hosting both. Which would mean no race until 2014.

Then I guess Grant Bowler will host The Mole 6: Culture Clash. I'm really expecting such a show that has disappeared from TV for 8 years. :conf:

They are testing The Mole next year to see how it fares rating wise as Season 5 didn't do as well. And if it draws enough attention at the lower cost they will most probably continue it. If not then I'd say the race will be back in 2014. I am just very sure there will be no race next year  :'( but this isn't the last we've seen of it for sure!  :conf:

Can't another channel take it on?  Surely the makers would want it on every year, not alternating.

Post by: Remembers on October 28, 2012, 03:50:08 AM
I doubt this series is dead. Grant Bowler has been busy doing other acting jobs, they're probably just giving the man a chance to return as host.

I bet Season 3 airs sometime in 2013, even if its an issue of it being filmed early 2013.

None of the main networks can't do anything because 7 airs TARUS and they have exlusive rights to produce TARAU. So unless 9 or 10 can find a loophole (like how 7 did celbrearty survivor) they are no use to us.

There is a slim probably unlikely chance that fox 8 (on foxtel or what you in the US call cable) could produce TAR AU as have pay tv rights over the show (I deffiatily saw the HK TAR 17 ep)but again don't count on it.

Maybe we are just overreacting and the race just wasn't mentioned in the 'highlights' because it isn't airing until late 2013 because the Mole is airing in the first half of 2013? Applications close this Tuesday so if nothing has been announced yet then I'm sure it hasn't been cancelled. The only thing which may make me seem doubtful is if Grant is announced as the host of the Mole.

Oh ok I thought they would only give the rights to a channel if they also had a contract for them to do a certain number of seasons in that period.

7 have fallen the axe on



2 of it's initials are T and A



Show content
Australia's Got (No) Talent

The show is facing disapointing ratting and rising cost in which 7 have chosen to drop the axe on this sad excuse of a show.

http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2012/10/axed-australias-got-talent.html

AGT caused TAR to have horrable rattings for the 1st half of the season. Ths cancluation plus 7's kind reminder about apps means we are (well TARAU) most likeily back in business.

It also means local TV idiot Kyle Sandilands has no TV career (until another networks pay top dollar for this dumb idiot)(for US readers think of him as Charlie Sheen , famous but dosen't deserve to at all yet networks pay top dollar for him, really the only difference is that Charlie Sheen can act (poorly) while Kyle can't act full stop)

Gota scared didn't I.

Update : 9 has nabbed  AGT just hours after 7 axes the show . Althought this dosent effect TARAU , I am just pointing it out.

it does brought a bad rating on season 2... TBH, I even can't catch up my schedule for LIVE shows for the last 4/5 episodes, used to be live updater but then I can't cope with the timeslot :(

hopefully with reducing clash with other great franchises, season 3 can be amazing...!  :luvya:

p.s. I love what they did with the poster on the back of the bus or the big billboard, new design  ;)

TARAU ranked 7th on the best of TV 2012.(according to farfax media)

7. The Amazing Race Australia (Seven)
 
ASIDE from laconic host Grant Bowler, the key element that makes The Amazing Race Australia so much fun to watch is the excellent casting. This year, producers again mixed together a compelling group of heroes and villains. This year's cast boasted identical twins (both rugby league cheerleaders and devotees of peroxide and orange-skin tanning), indigenous Australian cousins, a pair of Melbourne cops, a brother-sister combination and two quirky hairdressers, Sue and Teresa. Then there was Sticky, who was born without a left forearm. Watching this enterprising and relentlessly upbeat youngster compete was an unadulterated joy
The only realty show that ranked higher was The Voice (Ranked 6th and is over rated, airs on Nine). Top on the list was Homeland (airs on TEN)

Side note: I cant belive they forgot to menton Emilia and Lucy.

All of this is looking good but we still have not heard anything from Active or Seven which is unusually strange, as I'm pretty sure that casting for the Mole which seemed to be the show that was overtaking the race has ended by now. There is just no activity whatsoever which makes me wonder if they are holding it off altogether until 2014? Thoughts anyone?

It could film in the first 1/2 of the year (when The Mole is airing), and air in the second half (when The Mole is filming).

Thats an idea. A change of filming time to change the seasons to try new locations (by seasons i mean weather ie a place that is amazing in winter but unavalbale in summer)

That could potentially happen, I know that they will probably resume the audition and casting process for the race probably after the new year, as the Mole has been the main focus up until now. They are probably also waiting for Active to clear up their commitment in helping co-produce the Ukrainian Amazing Race.

And the Mole would be a good cover up to distract everyone from potentially spoiling the race although I know that the Mole is filming for a really long time (January to April it was stated you needed to be available).

7 are still on the fence with the show. Could a win or loose at the AACTA discide it's fate.

Sourse :http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2012/12/roadblock-on-amazing-race-australia-renewal.html

Quote
It won an International Emmy Award for activeTV and was praised by viewers and critics alike, but what is the future for The Amazing Race Australia?

After just two seasons the show seems to have sunk quickly in Seven’s eyes, failing to win an endorsement at the network’s recent Upfronts.

Meanwhile Seven got excited about a return for The Mole -but does it come at the expense of Race?

A call-out for new contestants took place in August, but presumably all those applications are gathering dust while the network tries to make up its mind.

Last month Seven’s Director of Production Brad Lyons, said of the Emmy win: ”We are absolutely over the moon that an Australian production has received such recognition at an international level. Our congratulations to each and every member of the team.”

But yesterday a Seven spokesperson still couldn’t confirm a renewal, telling TV Tonight, “No decision until early next year. It’s on the drawing board and a much loved format.”

In a recent TV Tonight poll 68% of viewers voted YES for the show to be renewed, and 24% voted NO. This week it also received 2 AACTA Awards nominations.

Maybe it’s another format a rival network could swoop upon if Seven doesn’t want the show?

7 should give it another go. It only ratted horrible because of the original wednesday slot (after australias got no talent which ratted lower then TARAU) and the Olympic  break (which they were force to do, not 7s fault)

If 7 had there heads screwed on right they would renew it.


So what do you think? Are the prople at 7 idiots? If 7 do drop the axe which network (if any) will pick up the show?

Directors slam Academy's race

He's won an International Emmy, but Michael McKay isn't a real director according to the Directors' Guild, who want his Academy nomination withdrawn.
The Australian Directors Guild has taken a swipe at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts over the decision to pit three drama directors against an executive producer from a non-drama show in the best direction in television category in the Academy's award nominations.
The Guild has called on the Academy to withdraw Michael McKay, the executive producer and director of The Amazing Race Australia from the nomination list, which was announced on Monday, and replace him with another drama director.
It strongly condemned “this disrespect of the drama director's profession”.
“We were just amazed. We read it when the nominations came out and thought it was a mistake,” the executive director of the Guild, Kingston Anderson, said. “To our surprise, it was deliberate. This is like comparing apples to oranges; it makes no sense.
“If AACTA wanted to honour directors in the reality or non-dramatic form, then they should have created a category for those directors.”
The chief executive officer of the Academy, Damian Trewhella, said the category was for all directors.

been lurking and scouting throughout the board but didn't found a single separate TAR Aus Grant Bowler thread, so I might as well post it here... If the moderator notice a more relevant thread, feel free to move it there  :cmas16


I found this quite interesting article about Grant Bowler's career life (mainly about his performance starring as Richard Burton), as he whether should be considered to host another season of TAR AUS (despite of his experience from doing 2 seasons of the show)


but honestly, when I asked some of my TAR fanatic friends, they mostly didn't really like the way he brought the show, too calm and not quite excited...


The Tough Question: Has Liz & Dick Killed Grant Bowler’s Hollywood Dream?

December 7, 2012
By Andrew Tijs


......................... Writer Bill Harris avers that viewers have to be “realistic” about Lohan’s efforts, but praises Bowler’s “terrific job”, adding that he “nailed” Burton’s distinctive voice.

So can Grant Bowler – Kiwi-born NIDA graduate, host of Australia’s The Amazing Race, Australian drama mainstay (Blue Heelers, All Saints, Stingers, Always Greener) and recent US transplant for Lost, True Blood and Ugly Betty – come out of this trainwreck with career intact? Seemingly, yes.

While the critical attention was primarily directed at the preposterous framing devices and how little Lohan resembled Taylor both physically and emotionally, when it came to Bowler’s Burton, USA Today agreed with the Harris, writing “He at least sounds like Burton”. Salon crowed “[Lohan] is outmatched in every way by Bowler, who makes for a more convincing Burton — his voice is even pretty nice”. The Globe conceded that Bowler was “less miscast”, but the LA Times proclaimed “Bowler easily steals the film; he’s good and Lohan makes him look better”.

We should probably be more worried about his major role in the titanic ultra-right-wing two-parter megaflop Atlas Shrugged (http://www.metacritic.com/movie/atlas-shrugged-part-i/critic-reviews).

Critics barely bothered to mention his performance, choosing to spew bile over the enterprise as a whole (damned Liberal Elites!). Also concerning is his turn as Jesus (the actual Jesus) in this year’s prison drama non-event 186 Dollars To Freedom (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1652361/). What’s next? A role in a gay-man-and-lesbian-green-card-marriage romance indie I Do (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2102499/), released a month back at the Austin Film Festival. Maybe Bowler will just have to stick to TV, rather than movies or, especially, made-for-TV movies.

OK I can live with an unknown source.

They have released a host for the Mole and it is NOT Grant so I don't think this really affects whether or not TAR AUS will return. I personally think it will though maybe not till the second half of the year - There is no way 7 will dump a show that has done really well rating wise.

It hasn't rated the best but that was due to poor timeslots (especially in S2). 7 should give it at least one more chance.

I can't say too much. In 2011 I spoiled the starting line for Season 2 (not publicly but to one of the members here) and word got out somehow and production had to change the start line at the last minute. So you can understand why I'm not revealing a lot as I don't trust people to keep it under wraps.

You are right on the money with that Peach ;) as they appear to be waiting for 7 to give them the word to start racing. Budgeting as you can expect would be quite tight after 7 brought back the Mole this year (which started filming a few days ago).

An update on TARAU 3 will (hopefully) occur in the coming days as TV Tonight will do their program wrap for 7 for the upcoming year. (TV tonight have done their wraps for 9 and 10)

The race will probably not happen this year (as in air) unless they really get the green light from 7 soon and start to cast and plan things out to film if they wanna air before the end of the ratings season (which is end of November). I'm trying to see if any timeslots have become available that are potentially good for 7 to slot TARAus in and get adequate ratings as I would rather them get great ratings which continues the franchise than cram a 3rd season in and get luke-warm ratings. It looks like potentially Beauty and the Geek will be moved up earlier this year so that could possibly make way for TARAus to get decent ratings as that is the only reason why Beauty and the Geek did well at the end of last year (as there wasn't anything else on any of the other networks).

Also remember the AACTA Awards Ceremony is tonight so stay tuned to see how TARAus fares in both its nominations.

Maybe this year is a skip year and TARAU 3 might come back next year but who knows they could do the unlikily option of Sep - Nov but who knows.

Both options are likely, it might be too much Reality TV for viewers to handle if the race was chucked in with the Mole as well. Wasn't there someone on this forum that heard from an inside source about 7 planning on alternating the mole and the race every year?

And Active seem to be alternating as well between filming for the Israeli race (I mean season 2 filmed way back in March 2011 so it's been almost 2 years since) and the Aussie race and they like to recycle tasks/destinations from both, so if  3rd season does happen perhaps we'll see countries like New Zealand, Thailand, Japan, Korea and Spain?

Time will tell I guess but I am just hoping 7 do update us and tvtonight on the situation as it all is very vague right now!

“There are a number of announcements to come for the back half of the year including Beauty & The Geek, Amazing Race and so forth. A lot of things are in the mix, and things will become clearer in the coming months.”

Judging by this they are planing to put it on at the back end of the year.

We should be getting an announcement soon and it depends on the financial report and their budget whether they can squeeze it into the back half of this year or early next year. All I can say is that a future season should definitely be happening, it's just a question of when. I know some teams that were contacted late last year but were told the season might not happen for a while so just to still confirm whether they were available and willing to do it.

Our current theory is that they will film it during (Australia's) winter (June-August) for a spring Airing (September-November); basically it will follow a production cycle like what TARUS 23 would do

Who knows they could even pool their resources and do a similar route to each other (I heard that somthing like that could of happen between TARUS and TARI a couple of years ago)

Post by: tarauslover on April 13, 2013, 10:30:36 PM
There won't be a season 3 this year (well going to air anyways). One could potentially film for a 2014 season but they are letting The Mole run its course and seeing how it fares as that looks like the replacement to this year's race. There was a rumour about the race and the mole alternating in different years so we'll see how that holds up...

At first I didn't know what you meant by "Defence" but I looked it up and it was Grant's show.

Let me answer your question by going back memory lane (cue cheesy flash-back effect). Back in the early 2000's Grant hosted a reality show for 7 called "The Mole" (Which is coming back this year). One season he could't host the show due to something popping up so they got in another host for that season with some other guy (I think his name was Tom)

So to answer your question If 7 want to do another season of TARAU and they can't get Grant they will get another host to take over (It happened before and it could happen again)
Title: Re: Australian Season 3 NOT confirmed yet - Future remains unclear
Post by: georgiapeach on May 16, 2013, 10:15:20 AM
Or they can get another host for the other shows. Phil does more than one thing, timing can always be arranged.
Title: Re: Australian Season 3 NOT confirmed yet - Future remains unclear
Post by: tarauslover on May 16, 2013, 10:56:44 PM
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 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

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... ???

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.

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)

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)

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.

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!

Post by: theamazingracer21 on July 17, 2013, 05:17:29 PM
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?

Maybe (and this might be a crazy idea) but what if 7 are doing an Australian version of Survivor. I heard a couple months back that networks were in talks with the creator to get the right to air the show and the contract to air the show usually comes with an obligation to produce a local version. If true this will end 9's long standing affiliation with the show.

The Amazing Race Australia returning to Seven

Quote
THE AMAZING RACE AUSTRALIA is looking for ordinary people ready for the most extraordinary adventure of their lives.
Seven has announced the return of the hugely popular reality series, which has seen previous winners walk away with $250,000 prize money.

Teams of two will crisscross the globe in a fast-paced and unrelenting race around the world, unsure of what challenges lie ahead. Along the way they’ll confront fears, experience new cultures and make lifelong friends.

For further information and to apply, visit yahoo7.com.au/amazingrace from midday today.

Applications close on Wednesday, December 18, 2013.

THE AMAZING RACE AUSTRALIA is a Disney format and will be produced in-house by Seven.

The previous two series have been a huge hit with audiences and critics alike with the most recent awarded an International Emmy.

Some more news. 7 is producing this in house instead of using activtv and some news that will make the Kiwis happy.

TV Tonight Article
Seven to produce Amazing Race Australia in-house

Quote
It’s great to see Seven is returning to The Amazing Race Australia, something many readers have been campaigning for over an extensive period.

Both Aussie seasons were as good as anything the US has served up -a rarity in local adaptations.

But there will be some subtle changes to the new season with Seven producing the series in-house.

That means activeTV, which won the International Emmy Award for the second season, is not on board. That’s a shame given they have produced a Philippine version, a Ukrainian version, an Israeli version, helped out on two American series, consulted on a Vietnamese version and is planning another in Asia.

Rights holders Disney and co-creator Bertram van Munster are loyal to Seven given the network’s long association with the brand, so presumably they have faith in Seven’s own team. No doubt Grant Bowler will be high on the host wishlist if he is available.

There will also be a twist this season, which Mediaweek reports is a “race within a race” -Australia vs. NZ competitors. If you remember back to earlier seasons of MKR, we’ve previously seen Kiwis brought in to take on Aussies in Seven shows.

Applications for teams of two open from midday today if you wish to apply:  yahoo7.com.au/amazingrace

They close on Wednesday, December 18, 2013.

Don't be negative, at least we have a 3rd season and we know that none of the legs will rip off TARA or any other activtv produced legs. We are going to have a compleatily original race (without the "Jig" or "Pig" detour.) and van Munster has faith in an in house production. How bad can it be?

How do people in Australia feel about people from New Zealand, and vice versa? Do they like each other (maybe how Americans like Canadians), dislike each other (like how SOME Americans dislike Mexicans), or do they not care about each other (like how Americans aren't really concerned with, I don't know, Polish people)? Would Australians not want to watch it because it has New Zealanders? I'm from the US, so I'm not sure.

I liked the CAN1 cast, and obviously a few American seasons, but wowza, BOOM! from Michelle/Jo was just so adorable, I couldn't get enough of them and Lucy/Emilia. So glad it's coming back for a third season and great that those of us in the USA can see what life from the New Zealander perspective is like!

Slightly off topic. You know that Big Adventure show which we thought would be a replace TARAu. That's still going ahead.

Quote
Seven is now casting for a new Reality competition series, The Big Adventure.

As revealed last year, the series involves ”Adventure, Competition and Travel” as well as a “Big Cash Prize.”

Unlike The Amazing Race Australia, the show seeks individuals not couples.

According to the show’s website, the blurb is as follows:

Quote
Walk in with a dream. Walk out with a fortune.

Would you step away from your life for a moment in time to make your dream a reality?

Channel 7 presents a brand new show that will change one person’s life forever. And anyone can take part.

Because 12 lucky Australians will win a place on this show.

One of these 12 people will have their dreams become a reality. And walk away with the prize of a lifetime.

Auditions begin today in Sydney (registration 9-11am only) and continue in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
Source: http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/02/auditions-the-big-adventure.html

Website: http://au.tv.yahoo.com/competitions/the-big-adventure/

As long as it doesn't cancel our beloved TARAu which produced 2 of the best seasons EVER, it should be ok and worth looking into.

Grant is comming back.

Quote
EXCLUSIVE: TV Tonight can reveal Grant Bowler will return as host of The Amazing Race Australia for Seven.

Bowler, who was well-received by fans of the local adaptation, hosted two seasons of the show for Seven in 2011 and 2012.

Produced by activeTV, the series went on to win an International Emmy award.

The third season is to be produced in-house by Seven and sees Aussie teams compete against teams from New Zealand. The change in producers is understood to be part of a cost saving by the network, which prides itself on internal productions.

Retaining Bowler in the hosting position will keep some synchronicity for the audience.

Shooting is expected to begin in March, travelling to more international territories.

The first two seasons were Amazing (no pun intended) so why have less then the standard number of teams? They really should've went with 12 if they wanted an Even number.  :(
But I'll not cast judgement until I see the first episode or so I guess.  :iok

I am actually so irrationally excited for this show, I can't explain it to anyone in the real world, I don't feel like they'd understand! ><
They always manage to pick such interesting teams, I can't wait to watch them try and race around the world.
