Amazing Race 14 starts taping soon

The Amazing Race 14 will begin production late this week or this weekend.

Host Phil Keoghan confirmed that on The Early Show, saying, “It’s incredible. It’s amazing, quite frankly. We’ll be heading out for the 14th time to go around the world. We keep having this opportunity and for me, it’s the best job I’ve ever had and I love it and thankfully the viewers love it and it’s always nice to be employed and when you get employed and you get to go around the world and shoot great adventures with people and with an audience, there’s nothing more exciting than that.”

Once again, the show will leave from Los Angeles, making the new season blend into other seasons before it even begins, which is the one thing the series doesn’t need considering how rapidly it’s aging.
