CBS accepting applications for 'The Amazing Race 7'
By Reality TV World staff, 08/03/2004
With The Amazing Race ending its "summer programming" status of the past two years and once again rejoining CBS's traditional Fall/Winter/Spring programming schedule, one thing is clear -- CBS is going to need to start producing more Amazing Race editions more frequently -- and quickly.
As a result, CBS has recently begun accepting applications for The Amazing Race 7, with all mail-in applications due by a rapidly approaching deadline of August 11, 2004.
In addition to containing a completed application form. all mail-in applications must be must be accompanied by a three-minute videotape and proof of a valid U.S. passport. Perhaps due to the tight timeframe, the casting's regional semi-finalist interviews will only be conducted in six cities -- Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Final interviews will be conducted in Los Angeles in September or October, with filming scheduled to begin in or around November 2004.
