Interesting. But unlikely to fit this season's quirks. And 29 is casted.

'The Amazing Race' Season 29 Update: Casting Process Continues With 'Price Is Right' Model? [VIDEO]

It may not have a premiere date, but season 29 of 'The Amazing Race' still seems to be on track

By Lauren DuBois, EnStars on Jun 01, 2016 02:47 PM EDT




It may not have a premiere date, but season 29 of 'The Amazing Race' still seems to be on track (

The 29th season has no clear premiere date on CBS's fall schedule, but that doesn't mean The Amazing Race isn't gearing up for it's new season and working on finding the perfect cast.

Following the recent The Price Is Right primetime special featuring host Phil Keoghan and fan-favorite teams, a Twitter exchange between Keoghan and Drew Carey seemed to suggest that one of the daytime game show's models, Rachel Reynolds, could be one of the racers in the newest season.

Things started when Reynolds herself tweeted to Keoghan and joked about possibly joining his show after he did such a great job while appearing on hers, which led to Keoghan responding by asking who she would want to race with.
 



 
"It was a blast! You were 'Amazing' on our show, how about I 'Race' on yours," she wrote. "Sounds like a great idea to me," Keoghan responded. "...Who's your pick for a teammate?" Carey then joined the conversation by responding to Keoghan, suggesting that Reynolds and her husband, former MLB player David Dellucci, would make a perfect pair, leading to Keoghan suggesting they bring the casting idea to CBS's CEO, Les Moonves.
 
 

 


"Sounds good to me, Drew can you have a word with #LesMoonves #AmazingRace," Keoghan tweeted.

Casting appears to still be going on for the upcoming season, though it seems as if the show is working towards another season featuring strangers who partner up and race together, similar to the season 26 Blind Dates setup, though the casting call website also states it is looking for teams of two who do have a pre-existing relationship of a non-romantic variety, meaning it likely isn't looking to set people up on Blind Dates again, after their matches all failed to connect romantically during the previous experiment.

Nothing has been announced in regards to the cast for the new season thus far, though the show is expected to still tape for 30 days, sometime before August.

The WRAP:
We spoke with your fellow producer Jerry Bruckheimer earlier this week. He told us that you guys always have more good ideas up your sleeve. Can you project on the future of the “Race”? What do you have to do in the next season shooting this summer to make sure this becomes a multiple season pickup?


Elise Doganeiri:
 Jerry Bruckheimer is right, we do have more good ideas up our sleeve. Hmmm, what can I say … to be honest I have to keep it all under wraps but I will tell you, we have a fantastic cast lined up, exciting new places and challenges, and a new twist like you have never seen before.

'Amazing Race's' Phil Keoghan on Close Calls, Superfan Encounters and How the Show Stays Fresh

 8:07 AM PDT 6/15/2016  by  Kimberly Nordyke   


"We've really been blessed that every season has been something unique and exciting, and what works about the show in general, and the format, is that it allows for something fresh every season."

Phil Keoghan has racked up countless frequent-flier miles as host of The Amazing Race.

"I've been to around 120 countries or so," he tells The Hollywood Reporter during a recent break in the action while filming season 29 of CBS' Emmy-winning series (it's been named best unscripted competition 10 times since the category's inception in 2003).

And yet he says that, after 16 years, every season is still a new adventure for both him and the contestants — as well as the viewers.

"There is an inherent freshness that comes from behind a show that isn't studio-based," he says. "I think it would be a lot more difficult to keep the format fresh when you're going back to the same place and same stage, whereas we've never had do [do that]. We're never in the same place, and the show is never repeating itself."

Speaking by phone from Brazil, just a few days into production, Keoghan was hesitant to spoil too many details about the upcoming season but he did open up about some of risks involved in filming a show like this, encounters with superfans all around the world and why the series has endured for so long.

What can you reveal about the upcoming season?

I can't say too much about it, other than to say we're already two legs in right now and it's extremely exciting. There's already been a lot of drama, and I haven't slept much since we started going only 48 hours ago. We finished two shows, and it's already mayhem.

How does it compare so far to seasons past?

Well, I think that we've really been blessed that every season has been something unique and exciting, and what works about the show in general, and the format, is that it allows for something fresh every season. It feels different from anything [else]. We're just two episodes in, but we're off to a good start. I'm feeling very confident we have something special. It's usually episode 6 where I start feeling a little calmer; the beginning is always panic and craziness.

How do you keep the show fresh season after season?

It comes from having an amazing group of people. Producers put so much work into new ideas and locations and all that. And on top of it all, there is an inherent freshness that comes from behind a show that isn't studio-based. I think it would be a lot more difficult to keep the format fresh when you're going back to the same place and same stage, whereas we've never had do [do that]. We're never in the same place, and the show is never repeating itself. The only time it repeats itself is if we do a challenge again from something in the past that fans loved, but even then it's new teams and a new setup. If you remember the cheese rolling down the hill, we repeated that but it was a different location and then we had new contestants, and new reactions, and a slightly different setup.


How do you keep your stamina up?

Mixed nuts are always good; I'm eating mixed nuts right now (laughs). Lots of water. And I have to admit I do rely a little bit on caffeine to keep my energy up. I just hosted The Price Is Right [in a primetime special featuring past Amazing Race contestants], and the energy there is so infectious. I jokingly said it would be fun to have an audience travel around the world with us and greet the teams at 3 in the morning when everybody is half dead from jet lag and exhaustion.

Why do you think the show has endured for so long?

It goes back to what said, that it never feels like it's repeating itself. We're 16 years into The Amazing Race, and we just never know what's going to happen next. The unpredictability comes from the fact that we are shooting the show on a global scale. It always feels big and bold and unpredictable, and there is a certain amount of risk involved in getting around the world. It's just so different from so many other shows, in terms of logistics. Already we've had delayed flights, and we were out on the road yesterday and they were using explosives on one side of the road. And we got caught in a massive storm yesterday, which basically stopped everything from moving. You can't drive in a tropical rainstorm. So it's just those things you never think about when you're shooting in a Hollywood studio. Or if our cameras get wet or a piece of equipment is damaged in the middle of the jungle. Or having to think about protecting people from mosquito bites, or malaria, or the zika virus. There are so many variables and logistical aspects to the show. If you're just shooting a show in a studio, that's one thing, but we're trying to do it in the real world, operating on other people's timetables and flight schedules.

Have you ever had any near close calls on the production side?

Just this morning, I was trying to get ahead of the teams. It was a very tight race, and I was trying to get ahead to the pit stop, and this bread company was handing out bread on the street. It was a big party celebration on the street. Meanwhile, I was getting texts [from producers] saying that the teams were actually likely to beat me to the pit stop. There is a whole other layer, which makes it extremely exciting, and the excitement and unpredictability come through on the screen.

Did you make it in time?

I did, by 10 minutes.


Any other instances?

I remember once, in India, we were trying to take a shortcut, so we drove one street over, and we got caught behind a huge elephant. We couldn't get away from some huge celebration [in the streets]. Some of these things you can deal with, but you can't do anything about that. I embrace it, and that's part of what I love about it.

How many countries have you visited?

I've been to around 120 or so. Before Amazing Race, I'd been to something like 60, and now I've been to about 120. I think China is our most-visited country now — we're up to about 16 times — and we could go back there many, many times, and still not be repeating ourselves.

What makes for a good contestant on the show?

It's hard to define what makes a perfect racer; it's different than what makes for an entertaining racing team. Sometimes teams can be very good but not as dynamic to watch as teams that have flaws. Most people have flaws, and the audience connects with ordinary people thrust into extraordinary situations, rather than extraordinary people in ordinary situations. The more ordinary the person and the more extraordinary the situation you put them in, in general, that's what makes the best show. One of the great things about the show is, being on for so long, there are these young people who, all their childhood, wanted to be on and have been waiting to apply. It's cool when I meet somebody who is a superfan and has wanted to be on the show since they were 10.



Do you encounter fans all over the world?

We had superfans turn up today in Brazil. There was about 12 of them, and they all turned out with T-shirts and knew everything about the show. They are such big fans, they wanted to be a part of it. And they also don't want to reveal spoilers. People do love to give away where we are [filming], and we embrace the fact that technology exists; you can't live in a vacuum, like when we started [16 years ago]. But these fans made a point of saying, "We don't want to ruin anything for other fans by divulging who came in where or what happened." I'm not sure a lot of peope know how big the show is around the world. I believe it's in 140 countries; [it's big in] Canada, Singapore, Australia. And the format has been made in many countries. So wherever we go in the world, people know us straightaway. And we embrace that.

What else would you like to add?

I think the key for us is just that we keep the show relevant. We were honored the other day at Realscreen with an award for the best reality show, and we don't take that lightly, after 16 years, that we can compete with best of reality shows out there and still be relevant and keep finding new audiences. The material is evergreen, and so fans of the show who weren't even born when it started are binge-watching season after season and becoming part of the Race culture. The fact that we get 16-year-olds coming up [to us] saying how much they love watching the show with their friends, the fact that we are still relevant to that young audience and to families in general, that's one of the things I like the most about the show. What I hear the most about the show is that it's one show that families can sit down and watch together, and it's true. There are lots of popular shows out there, but few that facilitate family viewing where people can sit down together – grandparents, parents and kids — everybody can enjoy it.

Very cool article! There were a few small tidbits from the current filming. Also, great to see Phil reference our Sao Paulo ground crew and say some very nice things about them. Group t-shirts? Wow. I'd be trying to be as inconspicuous as possible, but obviously having the shirts worked out well.

'The Amazing Race' Season 29 Spoilers: Phil Keoghan Dishes On New Teams, Locations [VIDEO]

Filming has only just begun on season 29 of 'The Amazing Race' but things are already getting chaotic

By Lauren DuBois, EnStars on Jun 16, 2016 04:46 PM EDT

Fans still don't know when they'll see season 29 on TV, but The Amazing Race is still filming the episodes, and Phil Keoghan can promise that they're going to be good.

While taking a break during filming in Brazil, Keoghan spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the current season by phone, and he already can confirm that there's a little bit of chaos when it comes to the new episodes.

"I can't say too much about it, other than to say we're already two legs in right now and it's extremely exciting," he said when asked about the new season. "There's already been a lot of drama, and I haven't slept much since we started going only 48 hours ago, We finished two shows, and it's already mayhem."

 
As for how it's already mayhem? Keoghan himself ran into trouble getting to a the pit stop for the second leg, admitting that a celebration on the street almost kept him from beating the teams themselves there.


"Just this morning, I was trying to get ahead of the teams. It was a very tight race, and I was trying to get ahead to the pit stop, and this bread company was handing out bread on the street. It was a big party celebration on the street. Meanwhile, I was getting texts [from producers] saying that the teams were actually likely to beat me to the pit stop. There is a whole other layer, which makes it extremely exciting, and the excitement and unpredictability come through on the screen," he said.
 
 

 
However, he did manage to make it to the location before the teams, but barely.
 
"I did, by 10 minutes," he said.

Keoghan also revealed that he thinks are going to remain hectic for a little while longer, thanks to his past experience over the 28 preceding seasons.


"It's usually episode 6 where I start feeling a little calmer," he admitted. "The beginning is always panic and craziness."

Season 29 has not been given a specific premiere date on CBS.

'The Amazing Race' films Season 29 in Chicago

You think after giving them a heads-up about the finale, the Chicago Tribune would at least give a shout-out to RFF for the TAR 29 spoilers.  Oh well, at least the finish line is confirmed.  :snicker:

CBS continues the trend that started last year with references to TAR being interspersed to other shows.
Last night was "Bull"'s turn. At some point a character says " Are we on the Amazing race? Because I left my running shoes at home."

I'll take that as a good sign that they don't want TAR to be forgotten!

TAR 29 quote from Phil Keoghan doing a Le Ride podcast. From the very end:

"I can tell you that We have a very different set up to the start and I will tell you that the season -in my professional opinion- takes a little bit uh to get going out of the gate. Just my opinion. I feel like by Episode 3 it really hits its stride... Episode 3, 4, and 5 are just killer! And then it just sort of halts. But this season does take a little bit to get going out of the gate. You gotta stay with it. If we haven't got you by episode 3 then we are never going to get you. But I think Episode 3 is really awesome. And then it just keeps going. It builds from there."

Can't say this is surprising. We know that we have
Show content
22 individuals to meet, not just 11 teams. It will take viewers awhile to get to know the teams created.

Hmm... the fact that Phil isn't giving some canned response is actually kind of scary lol
It must be really... off? (Didn't want to say "bad" lol) for him to already try and warn everyone. hehe

But are we to assume Episodes 3-5 are the only good Legs and everything goes downhill from there?

I think this refers to the fact that it WILL take us longer than usual this time to get to know everyone. I would think that would easily take a few episodes.

And no ,Phil clearly says that it builds from there. My guess is that by Ep 5/6 we know the teams well. SO the initial team drama is done...and perhaps that means that that Intro part is done and the focus switches more to the race itself?   ???

Do we know if the 2 hour premiere is one long leg like seasons 6-9 premiere, or just airing the first 2 one hour episodes back to back like season 15? I'm guessing the latter.

I cannot post the screenshot now, but we are currently listed for "2901 and 2902" on the premiere night, so it's definitely the latter.

Hopefully they realize that this unique set up and the start itself needs extra time to introduce to the audience. That's why I think the whole first hour will be covering that.

Well, Peach.....

"I feel like by Episode 3 it really hits its stride... Episode 3, 4, and 5 are just killer! And then it just sort of halts."

Halts sounds very negative and it's unusual to see Phil say that to say the least...

I agree. But my hope is that the "it halts" refers to the initial cast/start drama (trying to be non-spoilery here) and then reverts to normal racing drama since he does say it builds from there.

But we really don't know. Could be that no one really loves this season and hence the late start and all. Particularly as there was a lovely available slot at 9PM on Wednesdays that we were not given.

Unfortunately I totally agree. :groan:
I was slightly worried about the future of the show before this, but now I'm starting to panic.  Lets just hope the first few episodes aren't really slow, or ratings could be the lowest we've seen in a long time.:iok

Listened to the Podcast...Phil says it "sort of HOLDS," not "HALTS."  That may make more sense to those who may have been confused by the printed version. You can hear for yourself at 25:44 in the podcast.

Meet the 22 Complete Strangers That Will Team Up at the Starting Line on THE AMAZING RACE

HE AMAZING RACE returns this season with a race unlike any before. In a brand new twist, all 22 Racers are complete strangers who will meet on the starting line. Before 'GO,' Racers will immediately compete in a challenge that will determine the order for picking a Teammate, based on nothing but first impressions.

The new season of the 10-time Emmy Award-winning series premieres on a new date and time, Thursday, March 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

CBS press release:

FOR THE FIRST TIME, 22 COMPLETE STRANGERS TEAM UP AT THE STARTING LINE TO BEGIN A RACE AROUND THE WORLD WHEN “THE AMAZING RACE” RETURNS ON A NEW DATE AND TIME, THURSDAY, MARCH 30



 THE AMAZING RACE returns this season with a race unlike any before. In a brand new twist, all 22 Racers are complete strangers who will meet on the starting line. Before “GO,” Racers will immediately compete in a challenge that will determine the order for picking a Teammate, based on nothing but first impressions. These new pairs of Teammates will then have mere moments to learn their traveling companion’s name before beginning a race around the world that will span 9 countries, 17 cities and 36,000 miles. The new season of the 10-time Emmy Award-winning series premieres on a new date and time, Thursday, March 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

“For years, THE AMAZING RACE fans have suggested we line up complete strangers and match them up at the starting line to see what would happen. These newbie racers begin with no pre-existing relationships or emotional baggage, and the excitement of traveling around the world to complete dozens of gut-busting, mind-blowing challenges quickly ignites tension,” said Phil Keoghan, host of THE AMAZING RACE.

“THE AMAZING RACE, in scope, is the biggest reality show ever created. It brings people from all walks of life together on a global scale, and traditionally sends teams with established relationships on an adrenaline-packed, exotic adventure. However, this season, we are excited to pair complete strangers and see how they handle the pressure of traveling the world with someone they just met,” said co-creator and executive producer Bertram van Munster.

Participants in the 29th Race around the world include an Army Drill Sergeant, a pro snowboarder, a Wall Street banker, an auctioneer and a college drum major, among others. They will begin their journey in Los Angeles and head to their first destination, Panama City. Along the route, Racers will be challenged with building and delivering desks and school supplies to children in Tanzania, skydiving in Norway and bungee jumping 240 feet into the Corinth Canal in Greece. The first team to cross the final finish line will win the one million dollar prize and be crowned the winners of THE AMAZING RACE.

 :groan: How predictable.... CBS has front loaded the cast with Alpha Males/Females (aka Heroes) so as to pair them with the Beauty Pageant/Professional/Liberal Arts Major/Millennial/Social Misfit types (aka Normal People).  I suspect that infighting, frustration, melt-downs will ensue.  Still, could be worse, they could have done "Blind Dating 2.0".   :funny:   Meh!

An interview with Phil: http://www.harrisonline.com/audio/philkeoghan032417.mp3

Nice one!!

"What I love about Amazing Race Fans is that even with the technology that is available, and even though many fans know what is going on with us, as a courtesy to other Amazing Race viewers around the world they are very good at protecting us without trying to be the one that throws out a spoiler that ruins it for everybody. We have really fantastic fans."

We have an International network of fans. Even though they have the ability to give things away, I am trying to think of an occasion where a fan has deliberitely given away some spoiler. They respect the franchise,  they respect the Amazing Race....but I guess we may need to keep an eye out for little drones flying by!"

Quote
How many pairings defied your expectations during the race?

Keoghan: Oh, a lot. I'm always surprised. People I thought would do better didn't and people I thought would cope better didn't. ... It really wasn't until Episode 3, which is roughly 80 hours in -- we talk about episodes as if [what happens in them] is spaced out over three weeks but in reality it's maybe 80-to-90 hours -- it took about 80-to-90 hours for the honeymoon period of being paired with a stranger to dissipate. It was like, "You know what? I'm sorry. I don't like the way you're dealing with this. I've got a lot at stake here. You're not gonna jeopardize this for me. We're not going to do it like that. I need you to work with me as a team member and give me the respect that I deserve."

Keoghan: Look, the show really starts to kick into gear for me around Episode 3 and then by Episode 5, it just launches into the end. The beginning is really interesting because everybody is trying to tiptoe around each other trying to be nice. ... Then it gets to, "You're really annoying me with how we're checking in at the airport. I don't know how you normally operate, but we're a team." On any other season you don't see that because people have gone through that in their pre-existing relationships, not that they don't have disagreements, but they're not starting from scratch.

Sounds like a fiery season from episode three and up! :lol: <3

And a very good quote for these trying times:

Quote
Keoghan: A lot of fans have said, "Why Thursday? Why 10 o'clock? Why can't it be this? Why can't it be that?" I've just said the same thing to all of them: "Let's focus on what we do have and what we can do and not what we don't have and what we can't do." This is an opportunity for us to go on a new night -- a big night for CBS ... and let's focus on what's right about this.

The 7-minute sneak peek surprised me as well - it's something they've been doing for Survivor several seasons now. So any kind of additional promotion they come up with is definitely a positive. :)

You're right. My DVR shows 2 episodes from 9-11 PM next week. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention, but I wasn't expecting that. Does that fit with the finale date or is there going to be a preemption somewhere down the road?

Not really... The Tribune reported all those spoilers last July 2016 in this story, after I sent them all the info while we were all watching live on the Wrigley web cam, as posted here

All the reporter did was confront Phil with the info during his bike trip and made him confirm it.  It was old news for Chicago readers. 

 :funny: ... in fact, the same reporter (Tracy Swartz) did both articles.  Looks like she ambushed Phil when he came to town.   }:>

Episode 9 "I Thought We Were Playing It Nice"
Episode 10 "Riding a Bike is Like Riding a Bike"

Surely this will be later updated with the name of the episode:

If you've been following some of the recap podcasts out there not a lot of news here, but it's an interesting winners interview with Scott and Brooke by Entertainment Weekly:

Note: Clearly Jodi Walker who conducted the interview, skipped the fact that Laura and Tyler were also strangers when they won TAR26.

He speaks for a lot of old-school fans who became disillusioned with the show as it just became almost solely focused on conflict & petty stuff rather than being a character-driven show as it was in early seasons. This season was a pleasant surprise and I hope the producers continue in this direction.
