As expected they will also be doing an international route this time.

“We really want to make the Amazing Race again, but we won’t film it in Australia again, we’ve done that,” said McGarvey. Noting that the US version is currently in production internationally, she added, “it is our strong ambition to film it outside Australia next year and our feeling is we will be able to do it”.

Happy to see those words! One domestic season per franchise is enough, unless the franchise is Canada.

The Amazing Race back in 2022. Filming commencing in the new year, and yep, overseas. I’ve seen the route, it’s crazy.
Casting will begin very soon. Follow The Amazing Race AU for casting dates and updates.
It’s gonna be the biggest season yet. So start working out who you are gonna to do it with, and I’ll see you in Lebanon….

The Amazing Race Australia heads back overseas?

“We hope so. Obviously, we’re talking to all our partners at the minute. We certainly would like to get amazing.

“I think there’s a massive appetite for people to see the rest of the world and we would love to be able to bring them that. So we’re just working through all of that at the moment.

“We would love to get around the world or certainly, a bit of the world!

“It certainly won’t be in the first half. Just realistically, it’s going to take a bit of time to pull it all together.”

If he just gave away a country, Lebanon sounds interesting. No TAR's gone there. Australia 1 went to Israel.

I find it intriguing that he describes the route as “crazy”. I wonder what would constitute as crazy for TAR AU.

Well, the third Australian season was the only route other than US season 5 to ever go to all 6 continents. They could do great things with the right budget. But after the previous seasons, I have a gut feeling this is more referring to their newfound affinity for unique twists.

The US is reopening its borders to fully vaccinated travelers (including those from countries with a travel ban) on November 8th as long as proof of full vaccination and a negative COVID test are presented before your flight.

Could we possibly get a US leg or legs this season?

They might want to reconsider visiting Lebanon. The place is quite messed up at the moment.

Beau could be swerving us. He could mean the USA. Lebanon, PA is right in the middle of Amish country and I'm sure they could find interesting things to to do there. It's also not too far from Philadelphia and the Hershey's chocolate factory/Hersheyland amusement park.

There's also a Lebanon in Oregon but it's a small town and I'm not sure what you would do there except go to other nearby cities. However, it is close enough for me to go to try to watch the filming, but I don't think the TAR Australia production staff would take that into consideration.

Me trying to report on the filming:  :didimiss:

Good thoughts. Lebanon (country)  seems unlikely so like your ideas! Highly doubt they would advertise the first leg. You have to watch out for those SPOILER people!  :funny:
