Rumor suggests “softened,” North America-contained Amazing Race 8 may get “canned”
The Orange Country Register reports today that “it’s taking place only in North America.” The paper also suggests that “[t]he race is being softened up to accommodate the kids,” as this is a family edition with kids as young as eight.
However, according to a rumor posted by a past cast member, this race might never make it to the airwaves. The Amazing Race 6’s Hera McLeod posted the following message at Survivor Sucks:
“From what I hear, they are having a lot of problems with it and it may actually not be a rumor that it all gets canned. (I can’t tell you my sources so don’t even ask!haha) Personally, I think it would be a blessing in disguise because TAR is not meant for children!”
