The Amazing Race 7 is now casting.
With The Amazing Race 5 still airing and fall’s The Amazing Race 6 being filmed now, CBS is looking ahead to a seventh season. Just recently, CBS was considering holding the fifth season until fall, but they’re now apparently planning to churn out seasons of this show as frequently as they produce seasons of Survivor. Although the series has yet to be officially announced, the network is casting for The Amazing Race 7–and applications are due next Wednesday (unless the deadline gets extended). According to the application, final casting will take place in September and/or October, with the shoot occurring in November. Local casting calls are also being held in cities such as Orlando on Saturday.
