Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan: We Have the Most Competitive Cast Yet

It's been 10 years since Phil Keoghan first set off on The Amazing Race — but don't show him pictures from back then.

I was like, 'Do I want to see those?'" Keoghan tells TVGuide.com. "But I really can't believe it's been that long. It's quite extraordinary to think about." Ten years later, Race is still on top of the world — reclaiming the reality-competition program Emmy after seeing its seven-year streak snapped by Top Chef last year — and is still upping the game every season. The 19th installment, premiering Sunday (8/7c, CBS), features a new element, the Hazard, which is a penalty ... //www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Phil-Keoghan-1038032.aspx?rss=breakingnews

'The Amazing Race': Still executive producer Bertram van Munster's 'personal thrill'

Bertram van Munster says he's calling "from Europe," but he can't be more specific. At least not yet.The Emmy-winning executive producer is now on location with host Phil Keoghan and energetic new contestants for the 19th round of CBS' "The Amazing Race," which begins Sunday, Sept. 25. Since a 20th season already has been confirmed for early 2012, the global "Race" is destined to keep running, and Van Munster intends to keep running with it."It is a personal thrill," he tells Zap2it from the mystery site. "Who gets the opportunity to do something like this, keep it going, and get the support from the network and the viewers? We have a huge fan club, and people who weren't even born when the show began are now fans of it. It's kind of frightening to think how long this could go."Van Munster attributes that longevity partially to the fact that "Amazing Race" contestants "cannot prepare themselves"... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/07/the-amazing-race-still-executive-producer-bertram-van-munsters-personal-thrill.html

Ron Howard Teams with The Amazing Race Producers for TNT Reality Show

The executive producers of  The Amazing Race  will help Ron Howard and Brian Grazer stage  The Great Escape  at TNT. TNT has ordered a new pilot for the reality competition, which will drop contestants into the middle of their own action/adventure movie — and force them to use their wits and physical skills to escape. They'll work together to perform tasks and solve puzzles, and then compete to gain freedom first (be it escaping a POW camp, a deserted island or a sinking ocean liner). TNT originally developed the show last year, but it ultimately didn't go forward. Now, the cable network is shooting a full pilot, and  The Amazing Race  executive producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri have joined the show to lend their expertise.

Amazing Race's Zev and Justin: Waxing Task Was "Injury to Insult"

To say the Rio leg on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business was not made for Zev Glassenberg and Justin Kanew would be an understatement. First, Zev and his "white boy rhythm" clashed with the samba Roadblock and then the best friends — the hairiest team of all — had to endure even more cruel and unusual punishment: waxing. "I don't know if the leg was designed to torture us, but it certainly did do that," Justin tells TVGuide.com. "We're going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn't throw that waxing thing in there when they saw that we were in the final four." Still, there are no hard feelings — just a little bleeding — since "the Race doesn't decide how hairy we are." //www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Zev-Justin-1032977.aspx?rss=breakingnews
