Producers say there’s a 50/50 chance of all-star Amazing Race season, say 10th is “harder”

The producers of The Amazing Race talked to critics Saturday and said that there’s a 50/50 chance of an all-star race.

“We talk about it all the time. We make up little fantasy lists in our head,” executive producer Jonathan Littman said.

He also talked about changes for The Amazing Race 10. “This race started harder. We sent them head first into the toughest possible areas. It really threw them for a loop,” Littman said.

And executive producer Bertram Van Munster confirmed many of the previously reported locations, saying the show visited some “hard-core communist countries” such as China, Mongolia, and North Vietnam.
