I interviewed The Amazing Race executive producer and creator Elise Doganieri, and director and executive producer Bertram Van Munster, and we talked everything from season 32’s alliance and future rule changes to the status of The Amazing Race 33.
The Amazing Race season 32 is a future season of the long-running CBS reality show.
What the The Amazing Race 32’s finale lacked in intrigue or actual racing, it made up for by just being an overall joyful delight. That was true of this entire season, too: imperfect but enjoyable.
During Amazing Race’s first city sprint—which involved racing around Manila and completing tasks, kind of like every other leg of The Amazing Race, just without those tasks being labeled as Detours or Roadblocks—the alliance struck again.
When a company’s inanimate mascot gets more screen time and character development than the eliminated team on The Amazing Race, something may be broken. A recap and analysis of Amazing Race 32, episode 10, “Getting Down to the Nitty Gritty.”
The alliance started to crumble internally during The Amazing Race’s mega leg in India, which offered twice the challenges, twice the Yields, and even the return of Phil Keoghan introducing a Detour with “This” or “That.”
Amazing Race 32’s five-team alliance was back in full force this week, basically neutralizing an entire challenge. It may not be affecting the outcome, but it is affecting the show.
The second half of last week’s episode worked very well as an episode on its own, and had strong challenges, from whisking to identifying. But it was self-driving that led to the biggest surprises. A recap of Amazing Race season 32 episode 5, “You Don’t Strike Me as a Renaissance Man.”
