Im a New Zealander and after watching many seasons of the Amazing race I cannot help wondering about what it would be like if there was a season in which each team came from a different English speaking nation. E.g a team from Australia, USA, Canda, England, New Zealand ect.. Perhaps the prize could be doubled from $1 million to $2 million. The only problem I see with this is if the American team is elminated early then the ratings in the USA would decrease and we all know television programmes are created to produce revenue.

Dear tabatha1989, You are Amazing Race fan...that's great! I have only followed Amazing Race Asia... few years back Malaysian team (2 young ladies) managed to win the race! I like to see how the complete their tasks and racing against time! They have to make decision fast, creative and wise. Very interesting show. Amazing Race Asia have a few countries in Asia joined in namely, Australia, Singapore, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand etc. They do have language barriers, they sometimes have to use sign languages to communicate especially when they travel to non-English speaking countries...wow. I have not join Amazing Race before, ..perhaps you should take the challenge and join! So far, I & family joined "HongKong Family Fun". It is a Tresure Hunt, we were fly-in to Hong Kong and compete against Asian countries : India, Singapore, Phillippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia (we are the Malaysian team). We also need to travel around Hong Kong to complete the tasks. Very interesting, it is an adventure of a life time! Go For it! All the best and happy myLotting!

Hi Iriene thanks for answering :-) A few years back the Amazing Race Asia was shown here in New Zealand as one team were New Zealand ex pats living in Asia. Hong Kong Family Fun sounds like alot of fun, I wish there were something like that (a treasure hunt) in Europe,America or Australia. I have heard of a Angels and Demons (based on the film and book)treasure hunt one can take part of in Italy which sounds like alot of fun. If I get the chance to travel Italy I will definetly take part in this.
