Amazing Race Australia vs. New Zealand
Starts in 4.5 hours.
Will keep you posted
YAY! Huge AR fan here - we're just watching the Canadian edition now
The canadian edition is really good. The fact they did a a couple of legs outside Canada was a great change. They had great episodes in Hong Kong and Macau.
Apparently, they will be doing another international leg soon.
About this new season, many aussies have been going 'finally its back'. Last year they replaced amazing race australia with a revamped version of the mole which fell flat from day one so its great that its back.
Also since its a very clear australia vs. new zealand battle it makes it very interesting and it plays on a classic rivalry between the two nations.
Also, the race is longer, distance wise- 90,000km which is about 55,000+ miles so its a big race.
There are only 10 teams this season but it will mean more time flr character development and i dont think they are reducing the episodes. Fingers crossed someone posts videos on watchitseries .com site so people overseas can watch. If it gets on youtube you have to be fast as it will be blocked as quick as the ioc has blocked EVERY SINGLE skating video from the olympics.
Thanks for the info GF2445!
This Canadian season is definitely a huge improvement to the first one. Mr TMC and I still laugh about that silly story-telling Road Block..."Amaaaaaahhhhhh--zzzinnnng!"
The story telling one in the newfoundland leg? That was hilarious.
The tasks are certainly a step up.
I am secretly waiting for the day the race has a skating challenge. There was ashort track speed skating challenge in a past american season which was so funny to watch but a skatong challenge would be fantastic.
Also, the first episode last night (tonight for new zealanders) was so great.
Yeah the strategy of befriending weaker teams to get rid of stronger teams is sort of a favourite in the Aussie version. It creates an us vs. the enemy feel.
