Update from Ron Shahar when asked about HaMerotz LaMillion:

Quote
'There's nothing to panic about, once it's possible we'll do it. Right now I don't see how it can happen in the world, every country has its own corona laws. God forbid, if one of the contestants or crew members test positive, then what do we do? All sorts of things that go beyond normal production management. It probably currently produces such an expensive production because of these issues that they prefer to wait with it."

This interview came after Ron competed on The Masked Singer.

Includes video of Ron singing "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life" dressed as a doe: https://www.mako.co.il/good-evening-with-guy-pines-articles/Article-77fef2c59159c71027.htm

Unlike Canada or Australia, Israel's much too small a country to think about a domestic edition. The wait will be worth it.

This was in Ron Shahar's IG story. Credit to Avid for noticing it!

Must mean Season 9 is on the horizon. 7 and 8 filmed back-to-back in 2018, so yeah, if it hasn't been cancelled, they're waaay overdue to film as well. Now's the time while every other version is.

"Israel Hayom" learned that in a new survey conducted among viewers, they were asked if they would like to return the successful reality show to the screen • Will it actually happen?

Is the old reality show "The Race to the Million" on its way to return to the screen? "Israel Hayom" has learned that a survey has been taking place in recent days, in which they checked the intentions of watching "The Race for a Million" if it returns to the screen.

In the survey, the participants were asked, among other things, whether they had watched the show in the past and which reality show they would like to see come back. At this stage it is not clear who commissioned the survey, but it indicates the feasibility and willingness of the television people to return the format to the screen.

"The Race for a Million" is considered one of the most beloved reality shows, but also very expensive to produce. About 8 seasons have been broadcast in Israel so far. The show went off the air in December 2020, among other things because of the Corona epidemic. So will she be back soon? time will tell.

"The Race for a Million" is the Israeli version of the American reality show "The Amazing Race". The program was broadcast starting February 5, 2009, on Channel 2, by Reshet. With the split of Channel 2, the program moved to be broadcast on Network 13. At the 2014 Israel Television Academy Awards, the fourth season of the program won the "Best Reality Program" award.

Just learned some sad news via a Facebook Amazing Race fan group - HaMerotz LaMillion has officially been cancelled after 8 seasons. This comes from a TAR fan in Israel who works in the production company's building and read it on Entertainment pages :'(

It certainly stood over among other versions over the years for its unique tasks,

That leaves US, Canada and Australia as the only active versions left.

Quote
After 7 seasons and 1 Allstars’, The amazing race Israel “Hamerotz-Lamillion” Cancelled.
The last two season were awful and out of the format and gained low at ratings.
The question that arises is if the competing channel will take the format, but rumors came up - the production might do something different, and maybe twisting the format to be cheaper.
As a producer myself in the same channel (But, News…) and a fan of the amazing race, I want to suggest new ideas of how to save the format without a large budget.
Anyone?😉

He said it was published in Entertainment pages but I couldn't find an article.

If some guy on Facebook says "The show is cancelled" and immediately follows it up by calling recent seasons "awful", that doesn't strike me as a reliable source.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

12 picked up the rights for TAR.

The beloved reality format that was abandoned due to the corona epidemic and remained off the broadcast schedule on Network 13, finds a new home with the competitor, just after the announcement of the program that will "replace" it.

13 replaced TAR with Peking Express. New season is set to film in 2023.

At least it's a more reliable source than last time, that was my bad  :funny:

Hopefully now they can get out and do a season 9! Israel's the only active version we haven't heard from since before Covid.

I don't watch HaMerotz LaMillion (because it's not in English), but I do love reading summaries of episodes! This series always visits the most exotic of locations and has the most craziest tasks imaginable, so I'm excited that TAR Israel has been revived!

According to a source in the production, most of the participants will be anonymous, but some names of potential celebrity couples for the season have also come up.

The new season is expected to be filmed in the coming months and the castings and auditions for it continue.

Say hello to the new host of HaMerotz LaMillion: Yehuda Levi.



Quote
The 43-year-old Levi is considered one of the most successful and leading actors in Israel in the last two decades, and this will be his first time as a host on a TV show.

https://www.ynet.co.il/entertainment/article/rj1dzho13

Levi posted the announcement on his Instagram, which implies a 2024 airdate. (Long story short, 12 wanted him but feared scheduling conflicts.)

Welcome back, HaMerotz! It's been 5 years since they filmed 7 and 8. Hopefully they still deliver the random, top-notch tasks we came to expect from this version!

Yehuda will be attending the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, which will run from June 16-20. Gives us a sense of when filming will end.

As was the case with previous seasons, could we assume Iceland is leg 2 and they had one in Israel?

The teams were still in Israel on Monday waiting to start. They could have done a leg in Israel on Tuesday or Wednesday and we missed it, or the first leg started in Iceland.

So far the route is Israel -> Iceland -> Spain -> Morocco. Heading Westward to the Americas would make sense. I wonder if they possibly could’ve picked up the original Brazilian and American legs for TARAUS5?

Here's a summary.

Thursday May 11: Teams were spotted in Reykjavik.
Saturday May 13: Photo of U-Turn vote board displaying 13 teams was posted. Yehuda also posted a shout-out to a friend back home on his IG story in a van.
Sunday May 14: 12 teams were spotted in Malaga, Spain.
Monday May 15: Teams were spotted in Tangier, Morocco.
Tuesday May 16: Certain this was a rest day.

I can't find any info confirming a leg in Israel, but I'm also not 100% on two Iceland legs outside of the one U-Turn photo. It is possible that Hallgrímskirkja (location of U-Turn vote) was the Pit Stop for the first leg. Teams then voted outside the church for the second leg and went out to the glaciers. If this is true, then we started with 14 teams and might not have any NELs.

I checked the list of countries they've been to, and yeah it is. It'll be an interesting leg from their perspective.

Israel and Morocco began normalizing relations in 2020 as part of the Abraham Accords. Would not be surprising if they also go to Bahrain and UAE in the future. Would be a nice step forward for the countries.

It would also be neat if Oman were to streamline relations as well, seeing as its last visit by any edition was/is much further back than the seasons in the thirties, i.e. just before the shift to HD.

After looking at Yehuda’s instagram, are we even sure that Victoria Falls is confirmed?

The only thing we can say with absolute certainty is that Yehuda attended a concert at Victoria Falls. At the same time, a DJ posted an IG story with Yehuda dated two weeks ago.

https://www.instagram.com/stories/highlights/17966662535386053/


I'm not usually in these parts but it looks like Yehuda was in Zambia a few days ago (possibly Victoria Falls) https://www.instagram.com/p/CsZLRW1M251/

The same person who tagged Yehuda also arrived in Zambia two weeks ago and likely posted a photo dump after leaving.

Final 5 looks like 1 MM team, 1 FF team and 3 MF. Guessing most of these teams left were last sighted in Morocco

MM is Yiftach & Sahar.

Vietnam was F5 according to the voting board. If today's India sightings are Israel, it's probably the last country.

With the network change, I wonder if they'll still do as Israel's normally done in past seasons? The race won't actually be finished, they'll wrap it up for a few weeks and run the final part at home.

That's what I'd like to know. This is already one of the best routes of a TAR in the last 5 years. A brand new country would push it to the top.
