In India the show airs on AXN. The show features two-person teams
trotting the globe for a $1 million prize. The show's executive
producer Bertram van Munster had intimated to Variety that a new
route was being worked upon. Major changes are in the pipeline to
keep the show fresh. However the basics will remain unchanged.
Ever since the show triumphed at the 55th Primetime Emmy Awards
in the reality category Bruckheimer has been after CBS executives
to give the show another season. At the Emmies it defeated Survivor
and Fox's American Idol. The fourth edition of the show saw
gay couple Chip and Reichen crossing the finish line in Phoenix
ahead of their competitors. India was one of the destinations visited
along with Europe, Malaysia, Korea and Australia.
Those eager to to take the road less travelled and join the odyssey
can apply through CBS.com. The fifth installment of The Amazing
Race is set to premiere in the US next year in the summer.
