The Amazing Race Coming to Canada, Eh?!

Big Brother isn’t the only reality show migrating north for the winter. Before tonight’s telecast of The Amazing Race 21 on Canada’s CTV, host Phil Keoghan, made a special announcement that was sure to make Canadians happy. The Emmy-award winning reality show is headed north of the border!

CTV Programming and Sports President Phil King noted

THE AMAZING RACE CANADA is a big show for a big network … Canadians deserve their own summer version, distinct from what is seen in fall and winter. With the incredible diversity, scope, beauty, and sheer land mass that Canada has to offer, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA will explore the world within Canada. It’s a perfect extension to an incredible brand, and a huge opportunity for racers, viewers, and advertisers.”

Right now, there is no word as to when casting for the show takes place, but it seems as if the first season, at least, will focus on just Canada – and not the world. Big Brother Canada is currently casting and we’re sure TAR: Canada isn’t too far from that milestone!
