Let the race begin

As host of the high-stakes reality series The Amazing Race, Phil Keoghan has seen more of the world than most viewers ever will and has a box of about 20 used passports to show for it.

In 21 seasons of globetrotting Keoghan has witnessed bickering contestants, havoc caused by late or missed flights, pandemonium erupting from taxi drivers getting lost and the tears of those eliminated for arriving last on the mat.

But there's one thing Keoghan would like to see again and it's cheese. The season 14 challenge where 90kg rounds of Swiss cheese rolled out of control towards people and houses has been a viewer and YouTube hit, so a reprise in a future season is not out of the question, especially with another old favourite returning this season.

 "We will be getting to Moscow, a country in Africa, another new country in Europe," says Keoghan of the remaining destinations for season 21, which has already seen teams pass through China, Indonesia and Bangladesh, with action due to move to Turkey in tonight's fast-tracked episode.

"I can tell you this season we will be revisiting a country in Europe and having a switchback of a popular European challenge of the past. It's definitely going to make a lot of people happy.

"With regards to the cheese; it is not actually the cheese but absolutely we have to get back at some point and do the cheese because that is up there in the top five. That is definitely an all-time favourite."

The stakes are higher than ever this season with the $1 million first prize set to double if the team that won the first leg, Abbie and Ryan, also win the last leg.

Another team everyone is talking about this season are Sri Lankan twins Natalie an Nadiya. "They finish each other's sentence, they are hysterical, they drive some of the other teams crazy," Keoghan says.

"They are one of those teams that really polarise the audience; people either absolutely love them or they get driven crazy by them because of the way they keep saying 'twinnies' all the time and finishing each other's sentences."

Contestants in The Amazing Race are tested by a range of physical and mental challenges from rappelling down a Pasadena bridge and eating the Chinese delicacy hasma (the fatty tissue found near frog fallopian tubes) in the season opener, to the rat catching assignment in Bangladesh.

Is there anything Keoghan wouldn't or couldn't do if challenged? "For me personally there is nothing there I wouldn't do; there are lots of things I'd prefer not to do," he says. "I am not a fan of eating weird crazy food. So I wouldn't choose to eat frogs' fallopian tubes. That said, if you told me I had a chance to win $1 million if I ate something I could probably muster up the energy to do it.

"That's one thing I like about Race is we tend to focus on food people actually do eat, we don't just have people eating things for the sake of eating, they are eating delicacies from a particular place."

Another thing Keoghan loves about the show is it is filmed in the real world with limited control of how events unfold.

"When they randomly come into contact with a taxi driver, suddenly that taxi driver is in a way dictating what the content is," he says. "This guy is suddenly a part of our creative process and out of that come these crazy cab rides where people have quite literally lost $1 million."

The Amazing Race picked up another Emmy award this year for outstanding reality program and Keoghan is ready to pack his bags to have season 22 filmed by the end of the year. After that, it's a well-deserved break with his family back in his native New Zealand for Christmas.

If Malta is correct, maybe Phil accidentally said the spoiler for this season? ???

I would put NO faith in MALTA unless/until there are CONFIRMED sightings. :lol:

If the interview is for TAR22, then why does it mention Moscow? Are they visiting it again or is it a mistake?
It can't be for TAR21, there is no African country in the route, and no new country in Europe..

Phil gave at least TWO (maybe 3) interviews where he misquoted an African leg and a NEW country in Europe in reference to TAR 21. Either he just plain goofed, or he was thinking about TAR 22 while discussing 21.... :duno:

No one said a NEW African leg.

You can see the original quote here:

 "We will be getting to Moscow, a country in Africa, another new country in Europe," says Keoghan of the remaining destinations for season 21, which has already seen teams pass through China, Indonesia and Bangladesh, with action due to move to Turkey in tonight's fast-tracked episode.

So this is what we have so far it appears.

1. French Polynesia
2. French Polynesia
3. New Zealand
4. Indonesia
5. Vietnam
6. Vietnam
7. Botswana
8. ???
9. Switzerland
10. Germany
11. ???
12. USA (obviously)

Theories I have for legs 8 and eventually 11:
a. Second leg in Botswana, other country in Europe
b. leg in South Africa/Namibia, second leg in Germany (i hope  :hrt:)

Let's hope Leg 11 is either another European country (I would guess London due to the Olympics) OR a South American country to make a 6-continent race which would be absolutely amazing!

My spec for Leg 8 would probably be another leg somewhere near Maun but probably remaining in Botswana

Here is the Berlin Pit Stop location:  Note that it was not Christmastime when the Streetview shot was taken!   :lol:

Joachimstaler Platz  Streetview Link


I hope this pitstop is a prelude to a leg at the Santa Claus Village in Finland.

May be possible, but I doubt it. The pattern lately seems to be a total of 9 countries (featuring tasks, not counting visits like Germany & Netherlands in TAR19 or Austria in TAR20), with three of them having 2 legs (or the equivalent - 1 1/2 for Denmark & Belgium in TAR19). With the fact that they most probably already visited those three, and that they are in Europe and it's pretty easy to travel from a country to another, I think that we'll see another country for leg 11 (just hope that there wasen't a last minute cancellation la TAR19 Leg 5)

I want that so bad now. Its an awesome city, and I always enjoyed it when the last two legs before the finale were in the same city. IDK why, I always like the legs. So I am hoping for double the Berlin  :hearts:.

SO thankfully I was right about the street of the location of the pitstop.
