Awesome.  :clap2: :clap2:
They have done a great job at adapting other shows in Australia.

Need to look a new live stream option, so we can hopefully follow the episodes live. The site we were using for AusSurvivor last year is not active anymore.

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.

I think we may have a new host. Matty J was rumoured to be the new host this time last year, but nothing happened. I wouldn't mind Grant again, but I think Matty would be more animated.

Confirmed series prize of $250,000!



Quite disappointing it is the same amount of money, however it's the locations/tasks/contestants that make the season!

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?

Not enough applicants?

I mean they are not even trying to sell it as TAR and going with "adventure travel tv series" instead... Why is there no more promotion for this? I am aware about like 2 internet articles about this... Many people who would like to apply probably don't even know there is a casting.

Is there a reason they're being discreet about what the application is for? Why not just say it's for The Amazing Race?

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.
