According to several sources The Amazing Race will be filming in Vancouver the next few days. Contestants touchdown in YVR around 4pm today and will be taking the Canada Line into the city. Stanley Park and Jack Poole Plaza have been touted as possible locations, not much else known at the time.
For those unfamiliar with the reality television show here is a brief description from wikipedia:
The Amazing Race is a reality television game show in which teams of two people, who have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at “pit stops” at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and to avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including planes, balloons, helicopters, trucks, bicycles, taxicabs, personal car, jeepneys, trains, busses, boats, and by foot. Clues provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member.
