Title: TARAU4 IS A GO!!!!! PRE-Race news and spec.YES! THIS IS REAL!!!
Post by: theamazingracer21 on October 29, 2014, 07:37:45 AM
Hey. Just thinking of starting this thread in the unlikely event we get somthing about season 4.

Recently 7 had their upfrounts as their statement on TARAu (and a few other shows) was as follows.
Quote
Seven's director of production, Brad Lyons, said shows such as Bringing Sexy Back, The Amazing Race and The Big Adventure - which have either rated poorly or attracted audiences "too old" for advertisers - are "still on our slate", but did not confirm their renewal.

"We don't have to make calls on them now," Lyons said.

It might be me being optimistic but if Glamping Survivor (Big Adventure) fails (which to put it in perspective, it's doing TARAu3 ratings in the much better 6:30 Sunday & 7:30 Monday timeslots Agaist repeats of Big Bang Theory and its hardily gaining on time shift, unlike TARAu which was 1st or 2nd gainer for the night) then there may be a chance for TARAu.

Again, it might be a long shot but let's at least have a little optimism.

Last night TBA hit under 600,000 viewers (from TV Tonight (http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2014/11/soft-start-for-the-week-but-60-minutes-beats-the-big-adventure.html)). For a new show in a prime timeslot, that's terrible. TARAus was doing better than that in a later timeslot and as a show returning after a year hiatus.

If only TARAus was given this timeslot now, the ratings could have been much better :(

The Big Dudventure is failing. Monday show for TBA are axed and Sunday shows have moved to 8:30pm with 7's ulitimate filler program (Highway Patrol/other police shows that are all the same) taking over the 7:30 hour on both nights.

My guess is that 7 want to compare how TBA and TARAu will do in similar timeslots to see who gets renewed and who gets the axe. Let's be hopeful that the numbers fall in our favor. :) :hearts: :yess:

I hope we get a Season 4 too. I think Season 3 only did poorly because they waited so long between Seasons 2 and 3 to do it. I think interest is there for them to continue it.

Also less of the Aus vs NZ thing, it felt far too forced, the drama and competitiveness.  Just call it Amazing Race Australia New Zealand Edition or something.

Change TAR Australia to TAR Australasia or TAR Oceania, that way New Zealand citizens can involved the race.

The Australian one should stay Australian-only for mine, otherwise it's gonna be rather difficult to get on the cast when I can finally apply! :grins:

Would love to see a separate NZ race though, for sure.

One of my main hopes from NZ vs Aus was that the ratings would of been enough to convince TVNZ that there is interest in watching our own version of TAR.

Still nothing confirmed but the recent ratings failular of 7's Restaurant Revolution can only be good news for TARAu possiblily returning for 2015.  :conf: :conf:

Thursday's airing of RR only achieved 415,000. 415,000 is terrible considering that this was hyped up for months in advanced, and aired in the prime time 7:30 timeslot.

For comparison, TARAUvsNZ stayed around low-mid 600,00 in a 9:00 slot (and aired often upto 15+ minutes later due to The X Factor draging on their Monday elimination show :barf) plus a solid 100k in timeshift rattings and nd compared to RR, TARAu was hardly promoted by 7.

This situation of RR is very reminiscent of (if not worse then) 7's 2013 run of The Mole which ultimately lead to TARAu returning in 2014. So there is precedent for TARAu returning from another shows failular.

PS: Sorry for being desperate and hanging on to whatever little hope we have. As I said in the first post of this thread, let's be optimistic. :cheer: :cheer:

I too am holding onto hope, but I don't know. Season 3 saw only like half the audience of seasons 1 and 2, it was pretty bad (ratings work a little differently in Australia, they only count how many people watched in the 5 big cities, not the whole country).

I ran across an interesting tweet from yesterday. I don't think it's really TAR Australia filming, but I thought I'd pass it along for thoughts and comments. I certainly don't see any sign of teams. It looks more like a travel show.

I just finished watching TAR Aus vs NZ, and I must say that I like the concept of having 2 nations, but it didn't turn out quite well in some parts due to irrational rivalry. :umn:

Anyway, TAR Aus 2 was great :hearts: and TAR Aus 3 was good enough! :yess: I would want a 4th season of this with all-Australians or contestants from different parts of Australia & Oceania. :) The editing was way better here than in recent TAR US versions. :lol:

7 have not announced any TAR for 2015 or 2016. I think the odds of 7 bringing back TARAu for 2017 is slim. :(  :'( :'(

At least us Aussies have Australian Survivor to look forward to. :trampb:

I too wonder if TAR Asia's revival after 6 years is a sign that there's hope for TAR Australia. But then again, the difference is Asia 4 went out on a high note in the ratings, whereas Australia 3 tanked :(

But if there is, maybe a new host. By season 3 you could kinda tell Grant was phoning it in, he barely acknowledged the race on his Twitter, even during airing.

I just wonder if TARA4 will be back in 2017. I really do think it will. However, I don't think Grant Bowler would back to host. I hope maybe it's Daryl Somers or someone. I just been googling around and I just have that feeling that 3 years off, is just enough time to work on it and make it better. I really just hope Channel 7 will renew the series because I'm DYING to see another season!

TAR Aus hasn't been off the air for eight years! It's been four!

But hey, at least there's a glimmer of hope! Ten has freed up A LOT of money, after losing the Big Bash to Channel Seven earlier this year AND being brought by CBS...

I really don't want him to host. He bores me very much, even more than Grant used to!

I didn't mind Grant's hosting style, but the reason why TAR Australia 3 (Australia vs. New Zealand) was delayed because Grant wanted to focus on his acting career. That's why they need a new host. Grant also hosted the Australian version of The Mole.

Yeah, I really don't think Grant will return to host Season 4!

That's good, IMO. He is so boring.

Matty J is also known as Matty Johnson. He was the bachelor on Season 4 of The Bachelor Australia! He now works on a radio station in Sydney? I think.

I also hope it's not him. I hoping it will be someone like Andrew O'Keefe, or Ryan Fitzgerald!

WOW! This would be amazing!

I would still like Grant to host though. There's just something about having the same host throughout the run. Even the new TAR China decided to go back to Allan Wu hehe
And Grant doesn't have a regular series right now though unlike before around TARAu3, he was just starting Syfy's Defiance I think.

Grant in Season 3 was kinda like "I don't want to be here, I just want to get paid." He did at least have that one great moment in Namibia of doing a task intro holding up a wild cat :D

If TAR Aus 4 does come back, it will most likely be shown in Channel Ten (owned by CBS). I'm not sure if they'll change the production team, but there is most likely to be a new host ! (Matty Johnson, from The Bachalor Australia 4)

Well, Active TV doesn't have the rights to any TAR franchise anymore (AXN took over for TARA5, TARPH is dead). Though I think they still help TAR Israel? And 7 took over with in-house production for TARAu3. So unless they enlist Active TV again, and since this would be on Ten, this might be a brand new team?

This makes me me hopeful. And it wouldn't be the first TAR international off-shoot to change hosts. As I don't know who that is, if he's more expressive than Grant, I'd call that a likely plus.

Yes, you lost the Big Bash League cricket tournament for $1 billion dollars, but you don't WASTE IT on a horse race!  :groan:

This could have a MASSIVE impact on TAR Aus...

Due to them WASTING up to $10 million a year, other shows suffer. Cuts on budget need to be made elsewhere!

If they decide to 'cut the budget' on TAR Aus, legs numbers go DOWN, product placement tasks GOES UP, numbers of teams go DOWN and maybe it will be a DOMESTIC race, instead of INTERNATIONAL...

Pure spec, of course. Nothing I have said here, is confirmed. :)

Look, Iím excited for a new season of TARAu - I started this thread 4 years ago with the hope that we could be optimistic for a new season to eventually come out - Iím over the moon that it looks like itís happening  :cheer:  :cheer:  :cheer:  :cheer:  :cheer: (especially as I can now apply)

However, I have seen a lot of people make the assumption that this new version will be exactly like the old series. That likely not the case as this new version, will have little to no affiliation to the OG series (like old Aus Survivor & new Aus Survivor)

I hope it hits the high highs of TARAu2 but for all intents & purposes, this will be a different production. So donít expect TARAu2 quality based solely on the name affiliation alone.

That being said, I would expect at least a decent show based on the fact that itís on 10 - between the 3 networks down here, they tend to produce the better-produced shows (their version Aus Survivor being the main example)

Would this be the first time a TAR franchise undergoes a possible makeover?

TAR Asia and TARAu both shifted from ActiveTV to in-house production (AXN and 7 respectively), but both retained their hosts and basically remained the same.

China Rush and TAR China can be considered two different franchises, but even then, Allan hosting both gives them a sense of continuity.

HaMerotz got a new host, but everything else remained the same as well?

Probably the closest a franchise underwent a complete makeover was TAR Latin America since it moved channels and the later seasons were pretty different from the first two seasons. Season 2 of HaMerotz was pretty different from season 1 with a greater focus on ridiculous tasks.

Rereading the casting announcement, the thing that excites me is the part about "travel around the world".

Considering the new network, wouldn't be surprised by a new host. Didn't that happen to Australian Survivor? As I understand, the "crew" change also happened to Dancing with the Stars: Australia, which also moved to Ten.

This is a reach, as nothing was filmed yet. But having helped posting live stream links last year for Australian Survivor, it surprised me how many episodes were 90 minutes long (including ads), some even slightly longer. And multiple airings a week. Wonder if the new iteration  of TAR: Australia might also get a few 90 minutes long episodes. That would be interesting.

I believe the old iteration had 90 minute episodes but they had more challenges, so the pacing was still close to the US show.

Israel 1 looks more orthodox than later seasons, with detour & roadblock and several ARI task in each leg, this season also featured fast forward, normal yield & U-turn

Never thought the day would come for TARAu to return!!! Ahh i'm sooo excited and especially that it's on Ten after their fantastic adaptation of Survivor.

In terms of host, I think it won't be Grant, but instead Matty J. Over the last month, he's been travelling all around the world filming a TV show - so I think it fits if he was possibly filming stand ups? Just a guess? Plus he is a Ten personality. From memory, I think he was in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Barcelona, London and Tasmania. Is there precedent of hosts preparing and filming stand ups before actual race time?

Mangoez is right, that article already named it as The Amazing Race.

TAR's pretty a big deal in Australia, so their applications would probably spike if they just came out and said what show it was. Not a word on the social media pages, their last posts are still from when Season 3 ended.
Title: Re: TARAU4 IS A GO!!!!! PRE-Race news and spec.YES! THIS IS REAL!!!
Post by: dryedmangoez on June 18, 2019, 02:49:51 PM
It's very interesting.

I remember both TARPH and TARA really did good things to hype up their surprise returns (s2 for TARPH, s5 for TARA) before even beginning to accept applications. Like, "Get ready!" promos on the shows' accounts and on the TV5 and AXN social media accounts. Then of course continuing to promo during the open applications/audition period.

So with that "Adventure Travel Competition" casting call, has it even been shared anywhere else outside of even here on RFF? Or announced anywhere else other than the tvblackbox blog?
Especially since Ten hasn't made an official announcement yet either, most Australians and Kiwis probably don't even know this "Adventure Travel Competition" exists, let alone it being TAR.

Are they hoping to fully produce the season before announcing it? Or seeing what kind of cast they might get before officially greenlighting it? Very strange!  :duno:

Apparently that's just the way Australian TV is, I've heard. Shows tend to start whenever.

Hoping it does well on the new network. Season 3 was good, but the ratings took a nosedive as the season went on.

How do you know, tar fan?

I really hope there will be more "normal" teams than gimmick and celebrity ones at least.

And they better not stop tradition of casting overweight team(s) in this franchise, lol.

There's rumours circling around on Facebook that participants on this season have been contacted, however, we will wait for Peach to confirm this information!  :tup:

Unconfirmed -- but agree that casting MAY be done...or nearly so. Last minute changes are ALWAYS possible.

Thanks everyone!

Reminder: For the safety of our TAR crew and racers...we choose to never publicly reveal in advance the location of WHERE teams will be WHEN.

This was a WHEN alone....but just in case the WHERE appears also we're going to pull this for now.

So...those of you saw this...please do NOT repost elsewhere. Keeping our beloved TAR safe is paramount.

We'll let you know when it is about to start.

Looks like Beau is leaving tomorrow, so I'd say the article change looks right.

One would think the empty bottle, bags and shoes means Kathmandu & Merrell will be sponsors?

He still had the tags on the backpack. I'm not even sure if he had packed anything at that point! The question now is if he is flying to the starting point?

Moving all this to prerace speculation.

NONE of the links are working. Especially for IG stories you MUST take a screenshot and copy/paste all text.

Yeah. Australia is a half-day ahead of US and Canada. It has three (to four) time zones depending on location.

SO...info thanks to Oval.

We are now thinking the sequester racer date info was incorrect. Given Beau's posts and the start line history...perhaps we were hasty. Hopeful for a race start next 48 hours, Friday most likely. SO...if you live in a possible start city location, you can help by checking all likely venues for unexpected closures. DO drive by's today. There may be unusual activity..set ups, vans, signs, parking restrictions. Check your areas for road closures. If you can be in an airport Friday or Sat...do it! In all cases...NO interference, be respectful. Live spoilers ONLY go here:

Yeah. We should be looking in the "Asia" continent. I think they left the start already.

Canada goes from filming to air in 2 months, and since this is like half that, I just hope the editing doesn't turn out crappy and rushed.

This is their big comeback season, so it has to be good :D
