While watching the gorgeous locations featured on The Amazing Race, have you ever wondered why the show isn’t shot in high definition?Â Fans of the show have been complaining for seventeen seasons now.Â Even Phil Keogahn wanted to see the show shot in high definition.Â Now, it looks like CBS will be giving the fans of The Amazing Race exactly what they want.
Previously, The Amazing Race producers explained that logistical problems were the reason that they could not shoot the high definition.Â The show uses many local crews for international shoots, which would require very expensive equipment upgrades.Â They also expressed concerns about the portability and durability of high definition cameras.Â However, Once scripted broadcast shows made the change to high definition, many reality shows followed suit, such as CBS’s Survivor.Â Phil Keogahan recently told Reality Blurred, “I would love to see the show in HD.Â I think it makes sense for the show to be in HD.Â I don’t really know all the reasons why it isn’t.Â But I would love to see the show in HD, and I do hear it a lot from fans.Â And I do think it is something that needs to come to the show.”
Entertainment President Nina Tassler recently told the Hollywood Reporter, “Yes, yes, yes.Â We are doing Amazing Race in HD next year.Â I just announced it, there you go.”Â
There is no word on if the show will begin shooting in high definition for the upcoming season.Â However, The Amazing Race fans can be happy knowing that their television visits to the most remote and gorgeous parts of the world will now be shot in the best way possible.
