'Amazing Race' honcho teases new season
Jul 31, 2008, 03:07 PM | by Dan Snierson

With the season 13 debut of CBS’ The Amazing Race looming just around the corner (okay, Sept. 28), exec producer Bertram Van Munster slipped us a few clues about the upcoming globetrot.

• The race takes 23 days, covers nearly 40,000 miles, spans five continents, and features some far-flung locales never before seen on the show, including Angkor Wat, Cambodia and La Paz, Bolivia.

• The youngest team is a tandem of two guys in their early 20s. “They’re made for television,” Van Munster says. “They’re supersmart — and they make terrible mistakes.” A pair of recent divorcees in their late 20s also vie for the million-dollar prize. “They were left with some financial debt, so they really have a motive to run around the world,” he says. And once again, expect a serving of granola — this time with a husband-wife squad of 60-something Oregon hippies. “They’re the real thing,” says Van Munster. “They come right out of the '60s. To a lot of people, it looks almost like they’re from a different planet.”


• As for the challenges, “We’ve really outdone ourselves in the department of outrageousness,” Van Munster declares. “We have a situation in Bolivia where we have the [contestants] go down a cobblestone hill on very, very primitive bikes, and it’s just the most hilarious thing you’ve ever seen in your life. It’s a truly bone-jarring experience.” (Another must-see detour: A by-train-or-by-bus scavenger hunt in Moscow. )

• One familiar thing actually did happen on this race: The producers didn’t predict the winner. Says Van Munster, “We’ve been wrong every time, across the board.”

I am thrilled to hear TAR is coming back, Sept. 28. I love TAR!! The only thing that would make it better would be to learn Janie is one of the racers. dance Some of us just never give up, do we? Waaaaaa. I want my Janie doll.

LOL - it is a great show isn't it? They always win awards, not only the best reality show, but for editing. I'm sure they edit the show for entertainment, but I still like it even if it leaves out stuff or steers us to like or dislike some folks.

I agree about the planes dance

Terrence/Sarah and Ken/Tina, not liking them too much. I am thinking I might know why Ken strayed(doesn't make it right) and I really do not want to hear about it the rest of the season! No favorites yet, but I do like Nick/Star, Toni/Dallas and Kelly/Christy (gotta root for the Texas Gals).

omg, how much is Terence annoying me already? Everything Sarah does is wrong... running too fast, speaking in Portuguese, trying to be nice to the other teams. WTF? Apparently he has a problem with her trying to play a smart game. confused Take a lesson from your partner, dipshit!

Ken's wife (I already forgot her name) creeps me out. I can already tell the Southern belles are going to annoy me. The Frat Boys might irritate me too. The hippies seemed sweet but were way overmatched.

My pre-show favorites, based on nothing, were Nick & Star and Toni & Dallas. So far I really like Nick and Star; they seem very positive. I don't really have a read on Toni and Dallas yet.

It was kind of a boring premiere. Hopefully the drama will pick up soon.

I don't have a frickin' clue who Toni and Dallas are, lol, but otherwise, I agree with you on EVERYTHING....and I THINK Toni and Dallas are in the running for my favorites even though I'm not really sure who they are, lol!!

It's so confusing to me when it starts. There are a few potentials for absolutely despise, but no clear front-runners for me in the love category. Next episode, I'll have my mind made up. Very Happy

I enjoyed the show. No surprise that Anita and Arthur were the first team eliminated - I figured they would be unless some other team made a big mistake or got unlucky with a cab driver or something.
Terence and Sarah seem to be oddly mismatched for a dating couple - Sarah seems smart, personable and competitive and Terence doesn't seem to really appreciate those qualities in her - strange.
I hope the Mother/son team of Toni and Dallas stick around for a while - I'm enjoying the scenery there. Ha.
Ken and Tina were a bit annoying - I guess they used the whole former NFL player/infidelity/separated thing as their casting hook but I don't want to hear about it every episode - Tina seems to have a pretty controlling personality so I guess that will either help or hinder their race.

Edited to add that Ken Greene seems to be in great shape for a 52 year old, as is Tina if she's close to that age.

Fun episode. My favorites so far are the Dallas and Toni and Nick and Star. I also like the two divorced women.

I'm with you on TAR, Cousin. I had to stop myself a number of times last night and say 'editing'. No clear cut favorites but they're all leaving an impression of some sort Wink

Another great show.
I really like Sarah but Terence is pressing on my last nerve. He's such a catastrophist. (is that a word? Lol) Not a good quality for a life partner.
I loved Mark and Bill this week (the "geeks"). They work well together and I like their attitude. (What they said to Ken and Tina at the mat was sweet - nice guys)
I'm still enjoying the mother/son team, Toni and Dallas. Dallas is very supportive of his mom and encourages her.
I love this show!
