The Amazing Race 7
« on: Jan 21, 2005 at 03:01 PM »
news release from The Futon Critic:

ELEVEN NEW TEAMS AWAIT THE STARTING GUN AS THE NEXT 'THE AMAZING RACE' IS ABOUT TO BEGIN

The Emmy Award-Winning "The Amazing Race" Returns For Its Seventh Edition With a Special Two-Hour Premiere, Tuesday, March 1, 9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT

The next 11 teams ready to globetrot the world are at the starting gate awaiting the official start of the seventh edition of the Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE, which begins on Tuesday, March 1 with a special two-hour premiere episode (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

THE AMAZING RACE 7 returns to its regular Tuesday (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) time period beginning March 8.

THE AMAZING RACE 6, which regularly wins its time period in key demographics, is currently averaging 11.27 million viewers, 4.5/11 in adults 18-49 and 5.1/11 in adults 25-54.

In September, THE AMAZING RACE was awarded the Emmy Award for Best Reality program for the second consecutive year.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster (who co-created the series along with Elise Doganieri), Jonathan Littman and Hayma Screech Washington are the executive producers for Bruckheimer Films and Earthview Inc. in association with Touchstone Television and Amazing Race Productions. Amy Chacon and Evan Weinstein are the co-executive producers.



Seems like March 1 is too soon...I think it's better to let the show get some rest.

Also, the news I've been dreading about TAR7 is confirmed--that Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich from Survivor are included in this batch. I just hate these two; they're the reasons I stopped watching Survivor, and hopefully they won't ruin TAR for me. These two mediawhores winning TAR is just...unthinkable.  >:(

You beat me by 10 minutes!  ;D

Yeah, it's disgusting that Rob & Amber are in this installment. Hopefully they'll last as long as TAR's other "Reality TV Couple" did... Big Brother's Allison (and Donny) got the boot on the second episode, right?

Here's a link to the announcement: Survivors Amber & Rob to try "Amazing Race"

darnit. I would have preferred they put in ami cusack and her gf instead. Ami did say in some interviews that she auditioned for TAR and they put her on survivor instead.

*sigh*

Whatever you think about them, they seem to have the makings of a good racing team though. They've both shown that they cope well with stressful situations and uncomfortable accomodations. And especially for Rob, they're no slouch when it comes to physical challenges either. They're also pretty effective at charming and manipulating other people, which is always useful.

I'd respect them more if they said they were just playing for fun and plan to donate any possible winnings to a charity.

That was on an isolated island, and they hardly moved around or went anywhere--they just...stayed there. Whatever, nothing is going to make me like these two, unless they kill each other during the race. I couldn't stand them on Survivor, and now they're about to hog camera time on TAR as well. I'm still hoping that their fellow racers are smarter than they are and will know who they are beforehand and form alliances against them.

I find it unfair Rob & Amber's in this race. They have an edge, people know who they are (at least reality TV freaks like us! LOL!). The rest of the contestants , no one knows anything about them yet. What if in their trip somewhere, Rob & Amber are recognized by some reality TV freak? Would they get help, would they be ignored, will they be asked for pictures? Who knows? But whatever it is, they have the edge.  They're known in Europe, Australia & Asia because Survivor AllStars aired in these continents. CBS obviously wants them on TV.  Ang daya. :P

TAR 7 -----  Philippine route AGAIN ------ anyone heard about this rumor?

My officemate went ballistic when I told her that Rob and Ambah were joining TAR 7.  I guess they don't know when to quit.  Atleast we already have a team to hate  :)

I'm in minority here, but i welcome amber and rob in  TAR7.
I hope they don't get eliminated early.
And I hope other stars from other reality shows will have a chance to
compete in TAR. This will make things more interesting.

It would've been much, much better if the other supposed contestants were true, like Richard Hatch and Rudy Boesch as a team--Rudy himself mentioned one time that he & Richard were approached to do TAR. Now that would be a riot to watch!  ;D

Was browsing through the Sucks board, they have the whole list of Legs and Eliminations for TAR 7 already! :o Wala pa ngang announced contestants. I wonder where they get that?

If that spoiler is true, then Rob & Amber didn't make it to the next half of the leg.

Oopps, sorry.  :-[ I didn't think I'd need to put spoiler tags. I thought it was too early to be assuming the spoilers were pretty close to the truth. :-[

LOL, you can't really trust those spoilers. For me, even when it's so tempting, I refrain from reading those threads so my viewing is spoiler-free, mas enjoy kasi to watch if you don't know the outcome.

If that spoiler is true, then Rob & Amber didn't make it to the next half of the leg.

Naku, wish ko lang...  ;D

Team profiles are up on the CBS site. Looks like an okay mix; we've got the first mother & son team, a male gay couple, 2 roommates who dress like each other, and a former POW. There's also a tactless jackass and a manipulative skank from another reality series, but everyone already knows that.  ;)

i don't think this will be shown on studio 23, will it?

rob and amber played well in survivor-- it was a game of survival, so they had to do all the dealing, scheming, and lying they needed to do to win (although ethan won it in africa just by being a nice guy)... they played to win. kanya-kanyang diskarte yon. i hate how they won but they played it the best they knew how.

i think rob and amber will spice up TAR7. most of the other teams might make it hard for them because as rob said to amber in the teaser "you don't think they'd let us get the million again, do you?".

sana na lang they met someone na hate na hate sila at instead na tulungan sila to get to the destinations eh niligaw sila, bwahaha!

I'm not sure, but I think I saw a plug on Studio 23 already. I am sure I saw plugs on AXN "Beginning March 2," though.

Don't set your VCR timers wrong... it's a 2-hour premiere tomorrow, Wednesday, March 2nd.

10AM on Studio 23, 10PM on AXN.

Please note the altered time schedule for AXN. It will return to its 8PM time slot next week (March 9).

Contrary to my initial pre-race statements, I'm actually enjoying seeing Rob & Amber on the show. Not just because they're familiar faces, but I like seeing how bystanders/racers feel about them and react to them. It's a new angle that at least puts something unique in this installment.

I think the installments of the race really are too close together. It was better when we had months of anticipation. I really like the mix of players, but I just found the last half hour completely boring already. I was just waiting to see who would be eliminated.

The hot blonde roommates look like twins.

The brothers look like twins.

The boyfriends look like brothers.

The black guy looks like... Keith from "Six Feet Under."  ;D

this should only be a 1-hour episode!   >:( they made it into a 2-hour episode by making the commercials really loooooong...  >:(

i also find the last half boring.  i kept on pressing the fast forward button para matapos na.

i like the part where Gregg and Brian teased the gay couple!!  hehe   ;D

good thing the 2 blonde couples are still in the race.  eye candy for me   ;D ;D ;D

I am for "The survivors" (Rob and Amber).
Sayang !!!! But the couple who came in first deserved it.
