    Amazing Race Canada has started filiming

    https://www.facebook.com/#!/1057ezro...ocation=stream A local radio station is posting pictures on Facebook.

    They started today in Niagara Falls and had to drive themselves to the Toronto Airport. Lots of helicopters flying overhead today!

    I hope Craig & John made it in.

    Do they have to sign some kind of secrecy agreement? No chance of knowing whether or not they made it beforehand?

    I'm not a fan of the show at all but I'll definitely watch if they're in it.

    ETA: no info on the teams on the official site yet, or even air date other than "summer", but they do hint about some of the locations.

    Reality Fan Forum has blurry pics of the teams up on their site and I don't see John & Craig in them.

    They found one of the male/male teams audition tapes and its a brother team with one brother who lost his legs in the Afghanistan war. The rest of the teams haven't been ID yet.

    This radio station says that they think Phil is the host. Hope so.

    I was afraid it was going to be Mulrooney.

    Phil tweeted awhile ago that he wasn't involved with TAR Canada. Maybe that changed?

    I'm only going by what the radio station said. Maybe they haven't a clue and just assumed.

    I wish Phil would be in it. To me it's not TAR if it's not Phil... and it's not TAR if they don't go overseas (the family edition was pretty lame), but we'll see. Maybe they'll surprise me and it'll be good.

    So, there's just staying in Canada? That's a bit...lame.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Me too I'll watch for sure if they are on. Otherwise I probably won't.

    Well, Canada is a pretty large country with a lot of diverse geography. The previews/promos that ran during TAR finale implied that there might be dogsled racing and it would appear, if they actually went off to BC first, that they will visit the breadth of the country as I spotted the Confederation Bridge which joins Prince Edward Island to the mainland in the video. Good luck to all the teams.
    Can't skate but love to watch

    The US is a large country with diverse geography, but we don't talk about the season that won't be named because it sucked so badly....

    I'm going to be optimistic. The TAR Canada promos actually look pretty promising.

    I still think the season that shall not be named sucked more for the cast/theme than it did because of the locations.

    My guess is it's all about budget. For a fledgling show, getting the budget to send the cast and crew around the world is a lot. In addition, most Canadian productions rely heavily on subsidies and government funding, which usually comes with a lot of requirements re the percentage of production dollars being spent in Canada and paid to Canadians. Wouldn't be surprised if we see some obvious sponsorships/product placements as they did to augment the budget for Big Brother Canada.

    I'd give it a shot though - this is the same production company that did Canadian Idol, Battle of the Blades, Big Brother etc - their track record is quite good.

    This website seems to be monitoring social media for all things Amazing Race Canada. No sign of Craig & John yet. But Hal & Joanne from Body Break might have made it!

    I was joking last night I heard millions sigh in relief that the host was not Ben Mulroney.

    Talk about a perfect choice. Jon will be outstanding.

    Quite the two days for Canadian Olympians moving into new careers in TV Hosts. City/Rogers announced the coming Breakfast Television Montreal will be co hosted by Alexandre Deparite.

    Congratulations to Le Petit Roi on his new job too!!
