There Is Going To Be An Australian Version Of The Amazing Race
The news there is going to be an Australian version of The Amazing Race has made my freaking decade. Channel Seven have announced they have bought the rights of the popular US reality show.
Channel Seven’s release says:
Disney Media Distribution Asia Pacific has signed an agreement with Channel Seven to produce a local version of the Emmy award winning ‘The Amazing Race’ series for the first time ever in Australia.
As a part of this agreement, Disney and Seven are collaborating to produce a world-class Australian version of one of the most universally popular reality competition shows ever. The series will feature teams comprising Australian couples and will be shot in various locations around the world. Production will commence later this year.
‘The Amazing Race Australia’ will be produced in conjunction with Active TV. For more detailed information about ‘The Amazing Race Australia’ and audition opportunities, please visit: www.yahoo7.com.au/amazingrace.
I am going to apply, and I am afraid I won’t come across as the Marion of the series…..
Anyway due to co-ordination issues I doubt I will last more then two legs. The only down side will be no Phil Keoghan to greet me at the mat. My bet is that Jules guy from Seven or Tom Williams will get the hosting duties.
