Good news today!

TAR Australia has been confirmed for a fifth season in 2020!  :conf: :cheer: :2hearts:

Quote
New international for 2020 are FBI Most Wanted, starring  Julian McMahon, and (the long-awaited) The Gilded Age from Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) starring Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon and Amanda Peet. Also back is more of NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Bull, FBI, The Graham Norton Show, The Conners, various Jamie Oliver titles and more.

As per the picture below, Season 5 will air in November & December 2020!  :conf: :cheer: :2hearts:

It's a bit unfortunate, because I believed that it was possible for us to get TWO seasons next year!

However, it doesn't really matter because we are getting another season!!!  :waves:

I honestly don't get the optimism? Yeah, I want another season, of course... But they can easily cancel 5th season if ratings for TARAU4 will be bad, I guess. Or not? Because I think this means nothing so far... Everything is depending on good ratings of this season. They will not be filming another season when no one would be watching this one.

I mean they opened application for TARAU3 during season 2 airing, then canceled it, and then reopen it again 2 years later.

How is Scott Morrison (The Prime Minister of Australia), taking a holiday to Hawaii appropriate to TAR Australia 5?

By the way, ScoMo returned to Australia as soon as the bushfire crisis was picking up...

I don't think that TAR would get political at that level. Plus, who stays at a vacation for +3 months preceding to TAR 5's possible visit date despite an important crisis at home?

The Bachelorette and The Amazing Race Australia are back in Q4, with the latter enjoying longer pre-production time to expand on travel destinations.

“We went through Asia & Africa as a starting point but we’d desire fresh locations this year, with a bit more time up our sleeve.”

https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/01/programmers-wrap-2020-10.html

Q4 stands for Quarter 4 and Quarter 4 airs from October-December yearly! Expect to see TAR Australia 5 anytime during October to December 2020!

Well, considering TAR33 halted production due to the coronavirus pandemic, I wonder what the situation will be when TAR Australian 5 is scheduled to film in June-July 2020! 

Hopefully the situation has calmed down by then & we can get a filming in (considering TAR Australia races around the world!)

Some interesting news has come out in reaction to the TAR33 postponement (CBS owns Channel 10 now, and thus TAR Australia, too)

https://tvtonight.com.au/2020/03/amazing-race-australia-seeks-advice-on-safe-route.html

Amazing Race Australia seeks advice on safe route
March 3rd, 2020 By David Knox

Will production on The Amazing Race Australia proceed amid fears of the Coronavirus epidemic?

That’s the question facing 10 after CBS halted production on its international edition last week.

The precautionary measure was taken with the health and well-being of the Racers and the production team remaining a top priority.
A second season of The Amazing Race Australia is due on 10 later this year, produced by Eureka Productions.

“We are seeking advice to determine the international route for the upcoming season of The Amazing Race Australia, ahead of the start of production in June 2020,” a 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight.

“The welfare of cast and crew is of the upmost importance and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure their protection.”

But knowing which countries are safe from June onwards will be a tough call. Last year the show visited South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, Mongolia, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

It also isn’t clear if CBS would allow an Australian edition to proceed while it suspends its own, however that’s a decision probably to be made closer to production.

Eureka has been contacted for comment.

Beau said that the season is still happening but isn't ruling out a domestic season.

Quote
“I got a call yesterday from some people at Ten and I didn’t really see the news about CBS but we’ve already changed our route twice with the Amazing Race to try and stay away from some of the Asian countries,” Beau told us.

“Why don’t you suggest the south island of New Zealand, Tasmania and Antarctica,” Kyle added sarcastically.

“Well in all honesty, if worst comes to worst we’re doing an Australian one,” Beau added, claiming the series could hold the competition solely in Oz instead of various countries around the world.

BIG DEVELOPMENT! At least we're getting a season! I feel bad for the Racers tho! They kinda get screwed only travelling in their country & not around the world...

Quote
TV Blackbox can report exclusively that Network 10 have significantly altered production for the upcoming season of THE AMAZING RACE AUSTRALIA to make it a domestic-only season.

All participating teams will only travel to Australian locations due to current global health concerns around the spread of COVID-19/coronavirus.
It’s a significant change to the show, hosted locally by Beau Ryan, as the format prides itself on placing contestant in foreign countries where particularly their challenges are exaggerated by the local culture and language.

Due to the significant pre-production process involving site and country visits 10 have taken an understandably cautious approach for all concerned.

The US version hosted by Phil Keoghan suspended production mid-season earlier this year which sent all cast and crew flying around the world back to America. This is understood to have been part of the reason behind 10’s decision.

A Network 10 spokesperson said:

“Due to the current cautions around international travel due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a domestic route has proven the safest option for the upcoming season of The Amazing Race Australia, which begins production in June this year.”

“The welfare of cast and crew is of the upmost importance and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure their protection. From tropical rainforests, to the arid, red desert of the outback and the cool mountainous hinterlands, we are confident that the sheer vastness and contrasting environment of Australia will create a unique and challenging backdrop to the most amazing race on earth.”

10’s Amazing Race Australia will not be travelling overseas for its upcoming season, due to concerns around COVID-19.

A Network 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Due to the current cautions around international travel due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a domestic route has proven the safest option for the upcoming season of The Amazing Race Australia, which begins production in June this year.

“The welfare of cast and crew is of the upmost importance and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure their protection. From tropical rainforests, to the arid, red desert of the outback and the cool mountainous hinterlands, we are confident that the sheer vastness and contrasting environment of Australia will create a unique and challenging backdrop to the most amazing race on earth.”

A local route will deny the show some of the cultural clashes (and bad tourists) for which the show is known. But the decision follows CBS halting production on the US series which is currently in production.

Coronavirus concerns are increasingly impacting film and television productions around the world.

The Amazing Race Australia is expected in Q4 on 10.

Aw man, that's really tragic to see Australia be demoted into another Canada.

This over-reaction may be getting a tad out of hand now. Events are dropping like flies. I just heard E3 in Los Angeles is off for this year. It's only a matter of time for Tokyo 2020...

Part of me was hoping for a TAR Asia 5 route with a mix of domestic and international locations considering there are nearby countries that the show could visit. I do get their decision though. The problem 10 seemed to have is that countries are starting to institute mandatory 14 day quarantines for people traveling from countries with coronavirus even if they don't have symptoms. A domestic season makes the most sense when they have to lock in their locations.

Re: coronavirus impact for TAR AUS.
I haven’t specifically tracked Australia conconcerning the pandemic, but it’s not a good sign when two globally known actors, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson tested positive for COVID19 while traveling in Australia. Staying within the continent may not be enough.

Things are changing daily with the situation.

I would NOT be surprised if they still ended up cancelling or postponing this run. The safety of our cast and crew is always first in everyone's mind. With new info coming in daily I do not think any decision made so far is firm. We need to be prepared for possible changes as new information comes in. JMO.

"As the coronavirus spreads around the world, ViacomCBS's newly promoted local content boss Beverley McGarvey is reviewing filming plans for Network Ten's shows, particularly adventure reality game show The Amazing Race Australia which sees contestants travel to different countries"

From The Australian!

I also have a very reliable source that suggests that this season may not film in the June/July period... more later! :0328:

There is a ban on more than 100 people indoors, however workplace arrangements may continue. While no studio audiences are proceeding, normal television production can continue with crews & talent. However as we’ve seen in recent days there are no guarantees any production underway or commencing will be completed on time.

Further, the rule on handshaking, hugging and social distancing will likely impact on numerous shows -including Drama and Reality: The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, The Block, Neighbours, Wentworth, The Amazing Race Australia, Harrow, Home and Away, Five Bedrooms, RFDS, Back to the Rafters, The Secrets She Keeps, The Bureau of Magical Things and more…

Australian Survivor has been postponed while The Amazing Race Australia claims it will film in domestic destinations.

I think it extremely hard to believe that TAR Australia will film in June/July! There are travel bans all around the country and since June/July is winter in Australia, we will be having a flu plus COVID-19 season, so I have no idea how TAR Australia plans film even a domestic route!

We WILL be filming Season 5, as soon as all travel restrictions within Australia are lifted, due to the coronavirus pandemic!  :tup:

Expect to see these travel restrictions to be lifted within the next 3-6 months (June-September), meaning the earliest we may film will be June/July and latest we will film will be September/October!

Absent were a planned domestic season for The Amazing Race Australia and any sign of more Australian Survivor this year -both have been hit hard by restrictions.

Eh, better this way :) Wait for the world to open up again and scrap the "domestic" idea. That was just kind of a knee-jerk decision before the country locked down entirely.

Well, we’re not exactly “ruled out” of a season yet! We’re just “on hold” for a period of time!

Quote
Meanwhile hopes for The Amazing Race Australia to begin filming in June are also out.

“We continue to monitor domestic flight restrictions as well as social distancing regulations to ensure The Amazing Race Australia can go back into production at the right time,” the spokesperson added.

The series had originally set its sights on international but settled on local destinations. That’s still some way off given Step 1 of recovery is getting underway. TARA requires wide access and interaction by cast and crew.

Fingers crossed it can resume in coming months.

Bad news that Australia won't open to foreigners (except international students are studying in Australia) for the rest of the year as its borders are likely to remain closed until as next year.

Apply For The Amazing Race Australia Season 2
16 Jun 2020

It's time to pack your bags and get ready to roam Australia.

Applications for The Amazing Race Australia Season 2 are now open. Teams of two can apply now to take part once current travel restrictions are lifted.

Apply now!

Attention thrill-seekers and jet-setters. It’s not too late to salvage your 2020 travel plans. The Amazing Race Australia is back and looking for teams of two to take part in the race of a lifetime - this time, around Australia.

Staying on home soil, contestants will explore the breathtaking beauty and intrepid adventures Australia has to offer. Will our teams scale the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Forage through Kakadu National Park? Count all the churches in Adelaide? There's no knowing what Aussie adventures await.

Last year, our hearts weren’t the only thing racing when 11 daring duos bungee-jumped, kayaked, goat-milked and skydived their way across the globe in pursuit of the $250,000 cash prize.

From folding dumplings to chowing down on century eggs, the race was filled with twists, turns and tantrums.

Last season’s winners, newlyweds Tim and Rod, said: “The Amazing Race Australia was the most incredible adventure of our lives. The race is an adrenaline rush like you’ve never experienced before and the memories will last a lifetime.”

Network 10 and ViacomCBS chief sales officer Rod Prosser said: “It’s fantastic that the next season of The Amazing Race Australia will be filmed entirely in Australia. This will be a welcome boost for local companies and the Australian tourism industry as the opportunities to integrate across a series which will explore some of the best places and products Australia has to offer will be made easier than ever.”

Host Beau Ryan will be back to wrangle the racers, guide them through each task and let them know their fate at each pit stop.

Beau said: “The experience will change you and your teammates life forever. If you’re looking to travel off the beaten path, all while having a crack at the massive prize, then give it a shot."

So, if you’ve got a packed suitcase but nowhere to go, and like the sound of a $250,000 cash prize, then lace up your sensible walking shoes, grab yourself an Akubra, swag and travel buddy, and apply today.

I'm kinda excited for an all Australia race as we don't see much of the country on the US edition, also I don't really know the country outside of Sydney, Melbourne & the Queensland coast.

Good news from 10 with The Amazing Race Australia back on, albeit with a local route.

Production by Eureka will take place around Australia over a 7 week period later this year, for an ultimate $250,000 prize.

Host Beau Ryan said: “The experience will change you and your teammates life forever. If you’re looking to travel off the beaten path, all while having a crack at the massive prize, then give it a shot.”

Last season’s winners, newlyweds Tim and Rod, said: “The Amazing Race Australia was the most incredible adventure of our lives. The race is an adrenaline rush like you’ve never experienced before and the memories will last a lifetime.”

It isn’t clear if the show will still make it to air in 2020 or land in 2021.

It's an annoying business decision whenever a show (reality shows, specifically) switches networks. ABC officially counts their American Idol seasons as 1, 2, etc. But I don't think they've mentioned as much on-air. Seven Network also considers this year's BBAU reboot as a "season 1" as well.

Absent are Five Bedrooms (which recently resumed filming), Australian Survivor and The Amazing Race, with the latter to now film a domestic version for 2021. Also unconfirmed is the future of Playing for Keeps.

Interesting now to note that Season 5 is predicted to come in 2021. My SPECULATION is that it might run January-February (in the usual timeslot of I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here), which means it may go head to head with Married At First Sight and the Big Bash cricket tournament (if it goes ahead)

He made headlines after he scored a free upgrade to business class on a long-haul flight earlier this year, by pretending he had a broken ankle.

But on Friday, Australian YouTuber Jamie Zhu, surprised his followers when he teased a career change.

The 26-year-old vlogger, who just announced the release of his debut single Where U At?, told Daily Mail Australia that he's open to appearing on reality TV.

'I'm trying to diversify and think long-term as well,' Jamie told Daily Mail Australia this week.

The vlogger has amassed over 52 million YouTube views thanks to his cheeky sense of humour and regular pranks on his father, Zhu Xi.

And fans may see more of the duo, after it was revealed Channel Ten producers also asked them to appear together on The Amazing Race Australia.

'The Amazing Race recently contacted me to appear on the show with my dad, but he's living in China, so we will see,' he revealed.


However, when asked if he would ever appear on a reality dating show, he said: 'I'm not looking to get married anytime soon, so it's a no for Married At First Sight.'

'Love Island would be cool. I've had a few mates on there,' he added.

While Jamie has just released track Where U At?, he's keen to keep his fans guessing as to his next career move. 

'I want to get into different things so my fans can stay on their toes and not know what to expect next,' he said.

'I don't want to die one day and not have done what I've intended to do in my life,' Jamie continued.

'I'm someone that just shoots for what I want and, you know, things sort of come out of that.'

Back in January, Jamie made headlines when he shared a video clip titled 'How To Fly Business Class For Free' to his 5.2million Facebook fans and his 2million TikTok followers.

After arriving at his allocated seat on the plane, he insisted to his fellow passengers and airline staff that his Moon Boot can't fit in the restricted leg room provided.

'It's not fitting,' he said.

'The boot doesn't fit in here. Can I get another seat or something? I can't fit here at all because of the boot. I've got a broken ankle.'

The air hostess said she had to get clearance from another staff member, but the bold ploy worked.

Jamie filmed himself enjoying the business class perks, including drinks, a fine dining menu, eye masks, extra leg room and comfy blankets and a pillow.

This is one massive “Please Explain” moment...

Production of The Amazing Race Australia was suspended earlier this year due to coronavirus fears.

And now the show's host, ex-NRL star Beau Ryan, has confirmed the new teams have been cast and filming will commence in the coming weeks.

'Luckily, we're still doing the show. We're going soon, but I can't say when,' Beau told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday at the Stan Originals premiere for I Am Woman.

With international travel off the cards indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic, the series will be localised.

'We're disappointed we're not going overseas, but at the same time we've got some beautiful parts of Australia to see,' Beau said.

The Stan ambassador, 35, said recent recces [reconnaissance mission] by the production crew have suggested Victoria and Western Australia may be hard to include in the multi-leg race.

Beau also mentioned that travel restrictions and the potential of quarantining after the finale would mean he will be away from his family longer than originally planned.

'It looks like we're going to go for a lot longer. Nearly double the amount of time as last year's season.

'We'll probably be on the road eight-to-nine weeks, which is a lot. Longest I've ever done,' he said.


Beau said after Channel 10's first season was a hit with viewers last year, the network has decided to stretch the season out with more episodes on TV.     

In March, Channel 10 announced they had changed the show's format from international to domestic travel.

A Channel 10 spokesman told Daily Mail Australia at the time: 'The welfare of cast and crew is of the upmost importance and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure their protection.'

They remained confident Australia's 'tropical rainforests, [the] arid red desert of the outback and cool mountainous hinterlands' would prove an entertaining challenge.

'The sheer vastness and contrasting environment of Australia will create a unique and challenging backdrop to the most amazing race on earth,' the spokesperson said.

Last year's season visited Thailand, South Korea, Vietnam, and Mongolia. 

Newlyweds Tim and Rod Sattler-Jones were crowned the winners during the race's final leg in Africa.

'The Amazing Race Australia was the most incredible adventure of our lives,' the married couple previously told 10 play.

COVID’s curveball continues to keep networks on their toes as they deal with an ever-evolving crisis and finding a new normal.

Nobody can blame them for having to be nimble with their schedules, reeling from the great production shutdown of 2020.

But we haven’t heard much about a couple of key 10 titles which were last flagged to screen this year.

The Amazing Race Australia had to rethink its original ambitions to travel around the world, but later set its sights on domestic destinations. That was before border closures and state quarantine impacted. The Eureka series faces big hurdles to get its episodes in the can, but regional Australia where the virus is much lower may be the key.

Host Beau Ryan has told the Daily Mail Victoria and Western Australia may be hard to include in the next season.

“We’ll probably be on the road eight-to-nine weeks, which is a lot. Longest I’ve ever done,” he said.

10 is expected to confirm its plans at its coming Upfronts, but TV Tonight hears whispers the show could land early in Q1, especially given Australian Survivor is yet to regroup. This might explain a bigger output from the show…


Meanwhile the good news on Five Bedrooms is filming was completed several weeks ago in Melbourne after it was halted during the pandemic. 10 had also flagged this for 2020, but with no quotas required it too may land in 2021.

If they started quarantine on Monday September 21, then they'll be able to leave quarantine (providing they all test negative) on Monday October 5. Expect a start anytime in the week starting October 5 (around 9 days from now) All hands on deck come the 5th people!  :spy:

As they are going to travel only across Australia, this quarantine in which state is? And when they change to another state the production will have to do another quarantine period or how is it being done in Australia?

It's heavily dependent on where you're coming from and traveling to. NSW/SA just removed a mandatory 14 day quarantine  this week, I imagine some restrictions will change as filming goes on.

Beau's coming from Sydney, but no idea where they're heading to. Bottom line is though that QLD has strong quarantine restrictions, to the point there's excessive media coverage slamming it. Most people leaving NSW are required to undergo quarantine anywhere they go. As far as I understand, no VIC teams are reportedly involved this season due to the high cases in Melbourne at the moment.

I think we'll need to see where they start and from there figure out which states they can or cannot enter without quarantining. Best bet to do that is refer to the state government's website for the official requirements.

Please note that this is a subscriber only article . I have copied the details that are relevant to TAR Aus...

Quote
With his trademark high energy and court jester spirit, The Amazing Race host Beau Ryan returned to filming the reality adventure series on location in Queensland this week.

While the series set off last year around the world, this season – in the time of coronavirus – the popular 10 tentpole has been forced to think on its feet and find a new route around Australia.

As Network 10 executive producer Cathie Scott told Saturday EXTRA, when the world went into shutdown back in March, “embarking on a travel reality format such as The Amazing Race Australia … presented us with immense challenges but also an incredible opportunity to re-imagine this much-loved format.”

After a successful return to air last year, “the onset of COVID and the travel restrictions that ensued meant that we had to reassess all of series 2 international route planning and quickly adapt to shooting totally within Australia,” Ms Scott said.

“A cleverly designed travel route across the country, with the highest level of COVID safety protocols in place, will highlight never before regions and cultures right on our front door.”


With production staff, as well as contestants and crew all forced into a two-week hotel quarantine, the new season set off this week, bracing for anything.

Beyond the basic social distancing protocols, TV productions like the Race have had to pivot their plans to ensure the safety of all cast and crew, while still maintaining the entertainment standards viewers have come to expect from the highly-engaging reality genre.

After an initial shutdown of all studio filming and outside broadcasts in March, slowly but surely the TV networks and production companies they hire to deliver their reality slate have come back to life.

It’s just that real life looks a little different now.

Production for The Amazing Race has resumed in Queensland, months after it was temporarily shut down.

And last week, the show's host Beau Ryan was spotted chatting to a crew member as he enjoyed a break from filming the show.

The ex-NRL star, 35, kept things cool and casual in a white T-shirt and black shorts as he sat on a wall outside a venue in Cairns.

The ex-NRL star, 35, kept things cool and casual in a white T-shirt and black shorts as he sat on a wall outside a venue in Cairns.

He placed his sunglasses on his T-shirt as he chatted to a production assistant while relaxing outdoors.

Filming for The Amazing Race Australia commenced last week after production staff and contestants completed a two-week hotel quarantine.

The Channel Ten series was localized due to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.


Production of The Amazing Race was suspended earlier this year due to coronavirus fears.

In August, Beau confirmed that the new teams had been cast and filming was going to commence.

'Luckily, we're still doing the show. We're going soon, but I can't say when,' Beau told Daily Mail Australia at the Stan Originals premiere for I Am Woman.

Meanwhile, Channel Ten announced they'd changed the show's format to domestic travel in March.

A Channel 10 spokesman told Daily Mail Australia: 'The welfare of cast and crew is of the upmost importance and all necessary measures will be taken to ensure their protection.'

They remained confident Australia's 'tropical rainforests, [the] arid red desert of the outback and cool mountainous hinterlands' would prove an entertaining challenge.

'The sheer vastness and contrasting environment of Australia will create a unique and challenging backdrop to the most amazing race on earth,' the spokesperson said.
