For its 10th season, The Amazing Race is apparently returning to the middle East, specifically to Kuwait, the small country that borders Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
Blogger K The Kuwaiti noticed pairs of people and camera crews at the Kuwait airport, and writes that he “asked them if it was the Amazing Race, they said it was a ‘travel show’.” A team then asked for “directions to Kuwait Towers,” a distinctive set of towers that include an observation deck and a restaurant.
Photographs K took of the cast and crew with a camera phone are mostly blurry, but show teams of varying ages and ethnicities, and also clearly show a line of seven identical SUVs.
If there are no extra cars, that means this would be episode six with seven teams remaining. The team also “asked if I had any money,” K writes, so that might indicate that Kuwait is the first stop after a nonelimination leg.
