The Amazing Race has reportedly already finished filming Season 32 of the reality franchise even though Season 31 still won't premiere for nearly six more months.
Rumors that the final leg of The Amazing Race's 32nd season was about to be filmed in New Orleans, LA began swirling online Monday morning, and later that day, a CBS representative confirmed toThe Times-Picayune that the long-running reality competition series was in fact preparing to film in the city.
CBS reportedly declined to release any other details on Season 32's filming in New Orleans; however, buzz on social media reportedly suggested it was taking place in the French Quarter, the oldest section of the city.
According to posts from spoiler sleuths citing eyewitness accounts on Reality Fan Forum's message board, The Amazing Race's 32nd season started filming on November 9 with a starting line in the Los Angeles, CA area.
The eleven teams then allegedly visited at least nine countries during their travels -- including Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil, Paraguay, France, Germany, Kazakhstan, India, Cambodia, and the Philippines.
Unlike the upcoming 31st edition of the show, the cast of The Amazing Race's 32nd season reportedly does not include any returning Racers from prior seasons or reality TV stars from other shows.
As previously revealed, Season 31 of The Amazing Race will feature a "reality clash" of strong competitors from past seasons of The Amazing Race, Big Brother and Survivor racing for the $1 million prize.
The Amazing Race announced in June it had begun filming its 31st season when the show's official Twitter account posted a video of Phil standing at the starting line in Hermosa Beach, CA.
CBS then revealed last month the next season of the franchise, hosted by Phil Keoghan, will premiere Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 8PM ET/PT.
