There is an explanation why The Amazing Race has a dedicated base of fans.
The famous reality series shows teams traveling and competing from country to continent against each other in a race around the world.
To cross the finish line and win the $1 million award, they have to face obstacles, overcome cultural differences and work well with their teammates.
It seems like the show’s producers would like to make sure the team is deserving of a reality show. This is why they love adding partners who offer “a little drama.”
The Incredible Race drives athletes to their limits.
Contestants on “The Amazing Race” must work with their partners to get at a breakneck speed from point A to point B – and it’s certainly not easy.
Past contestants have spoken about some of the unpredictable obstacles they never planned, from securing the best flights to getting to a decent meal.
Even before the show, some of the challenges begin.
Before they have to plan for the adventure of a lifetime, participants are given a month’s notice.
And reportedly, they’re not told what to pack either.
‘I sat around before the race and watched YouTube videos like’ How to pack in various climates for a month for a backpacking trip,’ and I packed and packed again and again,’ said She Just Glows to former contestant Hayley Keel.
When it comes to personal things, host Phil Keoghan gave his own suggestions that contestants should always bring with them. “Only leave valuables in the hotel safe when you’re in a modern city,” he told AARP. “That doesn’t include your passport, by the way; I think it’s always better to have that with you.”
Show developers want to cast partners who are going to make good TV
As if the race for the world wasn’t exciting enough, the producers of the shows also want to ensure that they cast contestants who can add a lot of enthusiasm to the small screen – and probably excitement.
“We always cast for type-A personalities, super-competitive people. It’s always nice if they have a sense of humor, because you have to have a sense of humor when you’re on the road for so long,” co-creator of the show Elise Doganieri said, according to E! News. News. “And it’s also for people who have interesting personalities with each other. It can’t just be ‘We’re best friends and we have a good time.'”We’re best friends and we’re having a good time.
She then noted that it’s also a huge focus to keep everything fun for viewers. “People who tend to have relationships that are so perfect and lighthearted are sometimes not the best television,” Doganieri said. “We have to see that there’s a little drama underneath, a little spark.”
