Every fan of The Amazing Race has dreamt of competing on the show. Here’s how you can stand out from the rest and make your dream come true.
The Amazing Race season 32 is well underway, and the show continues to churn out unique and diverse casts. Hundreds of people have gotten the chance to compete on TAR, and yet there are thousands more at home waiting for their chance to do so. The exciting race around the world is surely the opportunity of a lifetime, so here is how you can pursue your dream of getting on the show.
The application process for The Amazing Race is very similar to that of Survivor and Big Brother, which are the other hit shows on CBS’s holy trinity of reality television. Overall, all applicants must be at least 18 years old and must submit a video that outlines their background and personality. The show evidently seeks out people with big personalities, so applicants need to bring all the energy that they have in their application videos. The show refreshes its collection of audition tapes each season, so fans who do not get chosen need to reapply if they want to be considered again. Also, keep in mind that all applicants must be US citizens with a valid US passport and US driver’s license.

What many The Amazing Race fans may not know, however, is that they can apply to compete as a team or to compete as an individual. When applying as a team, it is important that the audition video highlights not just the applicants’ personalities as individuals, but the dynamics of their relationship together as well. As such, one must not be afraid to highlight the negatives, in addition to the positives, of their relationship dynamic. All in all, the casting team behind The Amazing Race loves to see the banter between duos.
Of course, the status of future seasons of The Amazing Race remains up in the air due to the ongoing travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, the current TAR season 32 took nearly two years to air after filming. As of this writing, filming is yet to begin on season 33, but it is not scheduled to start anytime soon. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for many different reality shows to shoot, but that is especially true for a show that shoots in several different locations all across the globe and involves a lot of human interaction.
The Amazing Race planned to start filming in February 2020. However, the producers obviously delayed that start date indefinitely, which means that casting remains active. With that in mind, interested applicants should still put together a video and submit it, because you never know what can happen.
