Due to overwhelming interest, the application deadline for The Amazing Race Australia has been extended.
In addition to an unprecedented online response, and after hundreds of calls for extra time to prepare applications, producers have agreed to extend the deadline. Applicants now have until Friday, September 17 at 6pm to submit their entries.
Executive producer for Active TV Michael McKay says, “We have been overwhelmed by the number of applications we’ve received. In fact, our offices look more like an Australia Post sorting centre than a TV production centre.
“We have also been getting lots of requests for an extension, especially from country areas, and we want this race to be as accessible as possible. But beyond this there can be no more extensions so this is definitely the last chance to be part of The Amazing Race Australia.”
So grab your passport and your partner and submit your application for an amazing around-the-world adventure.
