Network 13 is trying to save costs, and filming sequentially the next two seasons of the "Race for a Million" reality show, Walla learned!

 In addition the network is expected to shorten the number of episodes of each season.

"Network will take two seasons of 'race' in parallel," says Wallale! Culture causes in industry. "This means that they will go abroad in November-December, film the seventh season of the race, and after the filming, the production team will not return to Israel, but will stay abroad, fly all the contenders for the eighth season, , When the injection will be from abroad in general. And so they'll shoot the eighth season even before they finished the seventh. It's supposed to last for two years, they'll have it on the shelf. In addition, shorten the number of episodes per season. "


"It's very difficult to prepare for two consecutive seasons, actually working on two casts and not one cast," the source adds. "This move is intended to reduce costs to the network, which stems, among other things, from the fact that all the preliminary preparation is done for two seasons at the same time instead of one, and they do not send every team abroad, because there are already people abroad and they keep moving.

Ravit Assaf , the beauty queen of Israel in 1992, is expected to participate in one of the upcoming "Race for a Million" seasons with her son, as published in Walla! Celebs. The model has already won a million shekels when she participated in Channel 10's "To the End of the World" with her former partner Avi Hazan.

Network 13 said in response: "We are aware of the great interest around the new season of 'The Race for a Million' on the 13th network, but when we have something to update we will do it with joy

If i understand, the city of the finish line of Hamerotz Lamillion 7 will be (or could be) the city of the starting line of Hamerotz Lamillion 8?

Filming 2 seasons at the same time?

Woahhhhhh awesome!

Is it the same contestants for both HaMerotz LaMillion 7 & 8, or is it different contestants for both? ???

Also, are they going to be filming over Christmas and New Year? ???

Given several people thought that last season went too long, I welcome shorter seasons.

If i understand, the city of the finish line of Hamerotz Lamillion 7 will be (or could be) the city of the starting line of Hamerotz Lamillion 8?

The article just says that they will stay abroad, meaning outside Israel and not necessarily the same city as the finale. At the same time, it's vague enough that the finish of 7 could be the start of 8.

Is it the same contestants for both HaMerotz LaMillion 7 & 8, or is it different contestants for both? ???

Well, I'm going to say the latter due to this rumor:

Show content
There are reports that one season will be a VIP season with returning racers including Neta & Omer and Vova & Alla. This season might also include celebrities like Noy & Hadar Karako, twins & former teenage stars. Reshet has not confirmed this rumor.

  • TAR 1-13 is the best era of TAR US
HaMerotz LaMillion is the first international version of the show to go beyond 6 seasons, the Latin America version was the first to go beyond 5, this is amazing. Also I do like how they are making the seasons shorter (as long as they keep the classic 13-leg format).

Shortened episodes is a good thing. I felt Season 6 overstayed its welcome with its airing time of over 5 months. There's such a thing as too much TAR :P

Don't forget that size of TAR Israel increased from season to season (Season 1 had 10 legs with two sixty-minutes long episodes for each leg, from TARI 2 and onward had 13 legs with typically 3 episodes for each leg, some of them was aired in four and even five episodes!)

Because it IS. Read the Media release above discussing the details.

And why we are running two seasons Back-to-Back!!!

TAR Israel does things differently. They normally shoot the finale a few weeks before it airs.

BUT with the changes this time we THINK this is the Finale...but if not it is the penultimate leg!

I was wondering that, too. If they were going to come back in a few weeks and film the two finales.

Update: Star City Amusement Park involves riding the Frisbee. Maybe it is the same as TAR PH's quizbee on the frisbee where teams had to answer a math question while on the ride?

Still no photos ughhh hahaha

Haha, yeah I remember the TARPH1 task. It was a Detour. Either solving math problems from the frisbee ride or riding a roller coaster while looking for and taking a picture of a Race flag.

I wonder what those drawings and words on the chalkboard were from the tweet at Star City. Maybe a quiz kind of task indeed.

There's also this tweet from yesterday:

went out for a date but suddenly turn into an organizer for an amazing race franchise 😅 good thing dí mall manager was so nice & (not to mention) talkative (I had to listen to this whole orientation of SM MOA complex so heís stick to us during the drill)
#ORGANIZERSGOTMISSING

No organizerís on-site; and jowa is so nice to cover up and talk to Israeliís & SM guards & staffs 🤦🏻‍♀️

Maybe some kind of task at the SM Mall of Asia as well, not just the cluebox by the fountain?

I was super busy today, I got no TAR time! :(

Anyways, a yacht cruise to the Finale Leg to a beach near Manila? Weird flex, but ok. Here are my wild guesses:
- Corregidor Island (but too small for a finale leg???)
- Puerto Galera (but idk nothing to do there???)
- Pico de Loro, Batangas (again, just a beach resort)

Surprise me, TARI! :lol:

If they're doing another leg in Manila, could this possibly be the start of Season 8? A first leg in the same country they ended 7 in.

That's what I was wondering too. It would make sense since they are filming back-to-back. It's definitely a fresh gimmick to have.

The human dominoes task as it looks like they're doing right now is also a very HaMerotz-type of task too hehe

1st day was mall area
2nd day was boat to island or somewherw
3rd day was today

If you check contestant thread for s7, the teams match with spoilers.

She's from Malaysia, but in another tweet, she posts a pic of eating fish sinigang, a dish in the Philippines. The plate also shows it's from Baliwag, a restaurant usually seen in mall food courts. So she must be in the Philippines right now and witnessing HaMerotz as well.

But certainly very exciting! Hehe. Have there been Races in the same area like this before at the same time? Was Allan Wu's TAR16 cameo just because they were in Singapore and not because TARA was filming at that time too?

It's an ad for a reality show channel. No word on the airdate yet, my guess is after Survivor ends.
