The Amazing Race Australia

That was my initial thought as well.

Exactly. The first Australian season stuck to mostly Asia as well. It becomes too repetitive when they stick to a region. They need a bit more variety in locations.


I’m still looking forward to it but you’re right, they need more variety. I think I still enjoy the European legs the best because of the history. If their aim was to keep things local then it’s a shame they didn’t go to New Zealand.

We here at 10 HQ have been busy recruiting a star-studded line-up of celebrities to race around the world, hoping to pocket $100,000 for their chosen charity when they take on The Amazing Race Australia: Celebrity Edition.

The biggest race around the world is heading in a new direction. They say travel is the ultimate test of any relationship, and for the celebrities joining us this season, it will be no ordinary challenge.

From an Olympic sporting legend to a comedian, a former Wiggle, and an international reality heartthrob, 11 celebrity racers and their loved ones will trade in their luxe lives for a life on the run.

Powerhouse husband and wife duo Grant and Chezzi Denyer are trading the country farm for a country lap around the world. The household names have built a successful business working together and will use their different playing styles to their advantage to get to the finish line.

Australian Commonwealth Gold Medallist and former Olympic athlete Jana Pittman knows her way around a race and a hurdle. Paired up alongside her son Cornelis, the pair share a love of sport and plan to play a fair and honest game.

Rebecca Judd is an Australian model, television presenter and athleisurewear designer, who will be joined by her sister Kate. Both self-confessed superfans of the format, these sisters may be used to the high life, but don’t underestimate their competitive streak.

Iconic children’s performer and former Wiggle Emma Watkins continues to surprise us. Recently revealed as Zombie on The Masked Singer Australia, Emma and her sister Hayley are excited for Australia to see a different side to them.

Former Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies and his television personality wife Jackie Gillies are leaving their twin boys at home to compete in the race of a lifetime. Partners in love and life, they wouldn’t do the race with anyone else but each other.

Host and actor Darren McMullen is used to living the luxe celebrity lifestyle, but how will he fare racing around the world? Darren is bringing his nephew Tristan along for the ride. These Glasgow boys are in it to win it, but will their Scottish charm pay off?

Australian singer, actress, radio host, television personality and author Alli Simpson will be joined on the race by her “momager” Angie. As gym buddies and co-owners of a beauty and wellness brand, this mother daughter duo plan to use their strengths of fitness, athleticism, and switched-on mental attitude to get them to the end.

Reality TV and social media stars Harry Jowsey and Teddy Briggs have both tackled love in paradise and are ready for a new adventure. These cheeky larrikins and best mates may be big on laughs, banter and having fun, but can they use their charm and good looks to land them first place?

Australian stand-up comedians Peter Rowsthorn and Dane Simpson are used to packing out comedy clubs… but how will they fair with packed out airports? It will be a funny family affair with Peter bringing along his daughter Frankie and Dane bringing along his dad Bow.

No one knows strategy and tactics quite like the King of Bankstown and Australian Survivor royalty George Mladenov. Alongside his sister Pam, can the pair outwit, outlast, and outplay this competition?

Our celebrities and their race partners will be met at the starting line by loveable larrikin and host Beau Ryan, who will be sure to throw twists and turns their way as they race across India, Malaysia, Cambodia and Borneo.

From culture shock, meagre budgets and the pressure of a non-stop race, our star racers will be tested in ways we’ve never seen before.


The first episode will be 90 minutes long including ads. It will be followed by the debut of miniseries Heat at 9pm.

Do we know how many episodes there will be? This might be ok if it is a short series (US length) of 10 or so episodes.

10 running TAR on Wednesdays and Thursdays - with Gogglebox back to a later timeslot.
