From a blog find:

Quote
I took a sleeper train from Kunming, and saw a couple tall ladies with matching red-dyed hair being video-taped and interviewed about how their flight was rushed and what they thought, blah blah. I didn't think much of it, but then when boarding the train, I saw a couple other camera crew running around. Then when arriving in Lijiang (the train was nice and double storied, which I hadn't seen before in China, but no door on the cabin... but at least the cabin was empty) at just before 7am, I saw a couple guys in matching outfits and cowboy hats also being interviewed as they got into one of the dozens of minivan taxis waiting to take people to Lijiang. I then started to think "Hey, this might be The Amazing Race or The Amazing Race Asia." I took a shared taxi but should have waited a bit more since at 715am the buses started arriving (but I didn't know). Anyway, after getting to the Old Town of Lijiang and finding a room at a decent price, I rested a little and then an hour later braved the cold (thankfully mild compared to other times I've been here in winter) to start walking around and taking more pictures and to eat breakfast. After walking up a hill to try to get a good view of the Old Town (the view is monopolized by many restaurants and you can't take photos without eating or drinking there), I stumbled across the host of the show as he was acting out with his translator and a woman dressed in local Naxi clothing how the teams will respond. I videoed him and took some photos and he came over and introduced himself as Steve. I asked if he was with The Amazing Race and he said "No, I wish!" but just a small travel show for The Discovery Channel, which I thought was even better because I quite like The Discovery Channel. After wishing him good luck I went down the hill and saw 3 more "teams" of partners and other crews filming them as they acted quite like they do on The Amazing Race (having to answer puzzles and put clues in certain ways to locals before given cards for their next destination). So either "Steve" lied to me (though he didn't look like the host I've seen before on The Amazing Race) or there were 2 different shows filming consecutively or the show being filmed (with at least 4 distinct teams of 2 people each) was copying the style of The Amazing Race for a China-only show. In any event, quite fun to watch but it also made me wish I was on the show competing for a million dollars since a couple years ago I applied with a friend but never heard back. Again, that's life but it's nice to know that I'm heading to some places that are considered worthy enough for either The Amazing Race or The Discovery Channel. It was also neat to see how many crew really are needed to follow around teams of people to make a television reality / travel show.

I'll try to post some pictures of the people I saw filming when I get the chance and a good internet connection. I still don't have access to facebook (both China and Vietnam block access) but should later in the week.

:hearts: LOL at Phil disguising himself as Steve. :lol3:

The Article from Barrier Daily Truth has finally been opened. Nothing new, though. :(

Quote
Quite a few locals were excited yesterday at the news that contestants and crew from the US TV reality show 'The Amazing Race' were in the city as part of their Australian leg of the show.
The production crew and 11 American couples arrived in the city on two Rex chartered planes yesterday morning from Sydney, and were picked up by several four-wheeldrives.
The show has couples race across the globe, doing crazy things at each destination. Rotary and St Johns Ambulance were at the old Junction Mine yesterday with the crew and contestants while they filmed a sequence for the show.
Many locals drove up to catch a glimpse of the proceedings. When the BDT approached the production crew for an interview, a spokesman for the show worked on the basis of little to no publicity.
But locals gave regular updates on their sightings of the groups on Facebook. According to posts on the site later in the day, the contestants had to go to Memorial Oval where they found an envelope telling them they had to dress up as Kangaroos and hop to Mercury Street for their next clue before they made their way to the Junction Mine.
Mayor Wincen Cuy took part in filming at the Junction Mine, but couldn't give the BDT any information as to what his role was.
"I had to sign a declaration of confidence," Mayor Cuy said. "I was involved, and it will be fabulous for Broken Hill."
City Council's media adviser John Casey said council would not comment on any projects filmed "in and around Broken Hill without theexpress permission of those companies and individuals involved.
"At this time we have been asked to keep details of projects currently in development in Broken Hill confidential and do not have permission tomake any further comment".
