Development and filming

CBS had originally planned to only air one installment of The Amazing Race (Season 12) in the 2007-08 season, but due to the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike, CBS ordered a 13th installment as a replacement for programs affected by the strike.[3] CBS greenlit the 13th installment on December 9, 2007.[4] Race locations were scouted in January 2008 and filming took place between April and May 2008.[5][6][7]

Filming for the The Amazing Race 13 lasted for 23 days and covered nearly 40,000 miles. The season spanned eight countries in five continents, and visited some far-flung locales never before seen on the show, including Bolivia, Cambodia, and Kazakhstan. Brazil, New Zealand, India, and Russia were also listed as race destinations.[8][9][10] This is only the second Race to circumnavigate the world westward (The Amazing Race 10 was the first).

This was the first Race in which an eliminated team was absent from the Finish Line to cheer on the final 3 teams, as Dallas (of Toni & Dallas) had misplaced his passport and the team's money in Russia on the penultimate leg.[11] This had been hinted at in promotional materials aired before the Race began, where CBS revealed that one team made "an unprecedented mistake that ultimately prohibit[ed] them from joining their fellow Racers at the finish line."[12] In a post-Race interview, Dallas revealed that the loss of the passport and money was partly caused by the changing of a microphone battery by production. The passport was eventually turned in to the U.S. Embassy in Russia, but it was still too late for him and his mother to join their fellow racers at the finish line.[11] Starr revealed in a post-race interview that Toni and Dallas joined the other racers in Portland, Oregon at a party the night following the end of the race.[13]

Post-race interviews revealed that Starr and Dallas – who competed on opposing teams – have been long-distance dating for six months since the show completed taping.[11][13]

Andrew & Dan stated in a post-race interview that the second U-Turn was available on Leg 9 but it was not used by any teams, thus it was not aired in the show.[14]

Cast

Applications for The Amazing Race 13 were due on November 27, 2007. Semi-finalist interviews were held in December 2007 and January 2008 and final casting interviews took place in February 2008, in Los Angeles, California.

The cast featured a pair of fraternity brothers, a team of married hippies, buisnesswomen divorcees and a retired NFL player hoping to reconnect with his estranged wife while on the Race.[9]

The show also featured John Keoghan, host Phil Keoghan's father, as the local greeter at Te Puke in Keoghan's native New Zealand.[15]

Marketing

CBS heavily promoted the new season, including placing advertising on the top of three hangar buildings at Los Angeles International Airport prior to the premiere.[16] Unlike other seasons, CBS provided a location map to viewers of where the Race would be traveling prior to the start of the season.[17]

Elimination Station

The first five teams eliminated were sequestered at a villa in Acapulco, Mexico to await the finale. Subsequent eliminated teams telephoned the villa to inform the teams at the villa of their elimination, but continued to run the race as decoys to throw off spoilers to the final outcome of the race. The sequestered teams met up with the decoy teams in the final destination city to cheer on the final three teams as they crossed the Finish Line, with the exception of Toni & Dallas, who were still stuck in Russia after their elimination due to the loss of Dallas' passport.

CBS posted short videos on its website after each episode aired in the Pacific Time Zone to show the eliminated teams interacting at the villa.

  • After Leg 1, Anita & Arthur were the first team eliminated and were sent to the villa first. They expressed their disappointment for being eliminated so early but were also appreciative of their surroundings and grateful that they could live in the lap of luxury in the villa.
  • After Leg 2, Anthony & Stephanie were the second team eliminated and were sent to the villa next. Anita & Arthur were surprised but excited that it was them and Anthony & Stephanie felt welcomed by Anita & Arthur and felt less depressed over their own elimination. Over a meal, they predicted that Terence & Sarah will win the race. The two teams then went out of the villa and enjoyed the sights and sounds of Acapulco.
  • After Leg 3, Mark & Bill were the third team eliminated and sent to the villa. They were glad that the two teams there were shocked and saddened to hear that they were eliminated. As they retold their story on how they were eliminated, they found Mexican wrestling masks in their room in the villa. The 3 teams were later brought, at night, to a luchadore exhibition where Anthony & Stephanie had a lack of interest and left earlier to roam the streets instead.
  • After Leg 4, Marisa & Brooke were the fourth team eliminated and were sent to the villa. They were excited on how lavish the villa was. They then discussed what happened in New Zealand before all 4 teams went into town and Anthony, Stephanie and Bill did a bungee jump as the others watched on.
  • After Leg 5, Aja & Ty became the fifth team eliminated and sent to the villa. But before they arrived, the first 4 eliminated teams went to the market and then prepared their own lunch to celebrate the arrival of the fifth team. The teams were surprised that it was Aja & Ty, who filled them in on what has happened in the race. After the meal, Anthony did not offer to help clean up, leaving Stephanie embarrassed. Meanwhile, Ty feels awkward to not be on the race and predicts that Andrew & Dan will be the next team eliminated or maybe wrong .
  • Leg 6 was a non-elimination leg. The five eliminated teams went to the beach where they encountered a weird individual who staged a "performance" for the teams in the ocean. There were mixed reactions from the teams with Anita being thrilled and filled with admiration while Ty was having difficulty understanding the different lifestyle of the people in Mexico.
  • After Leg 7, Kelly & Christy were the sixth team eliminated but were not sent to the villa. They called in during the wee hours of Acapulco where the first five eliminated teams awaited their call. They recalled their horrifying "Holi Festival" Roadblock experience and gave them an update on what had happened on the race.
  • After Leg 8, Terence & Sarah were the seventh team eliminated but were not sent to the villa. Before the phone call, the eliminated teams went to "La Quebrada" to see cliffdivers jumping down to the sea. After that, they gave opinions on who will be eliminated next. Most of them thought it was Andrew & Dan. They were all shocked when Terence & Sarah called in as several teams were rooting for them.
  • Leg 9 was a non-elimination leg. While Aja & Ty have a minor tiff with each other, Marisa & Brooke struggle to make toast. Anthony starts complaining about how slow time is passing in the Villa. All in all, most of the sequestered teams reveal that they are missing home and are eager to return to their normal lives. Most of them also predict and want Toni & Dallas and Ken & Tina to win the race.
  • After Leg 10, Toni & Dallas were the eighth and final team to be eliminated. The first five eliminated teams packed up to head for the Finish Line location. As they packed to leave the villa, each team recalled their experience with each other at the villa and expressed their excitement for returning home soon.
  • Leg 11 was the final leg of The Amazing Race 13. The five sequestered teams arrived in Portland, Oregon, where they checked in to a hotel and were reunited with Terence and Sarah. Toni & Dallas then called the six teams at the hotel, breaking the news that they had been eliminated and would most likely not be joining them at the Finish Line due to their passport mishap. The teams then went to the Finish Line site, where they reunited with Kelly & Christy, and some of the teams again expressed who they wanted to win. Nick & Starr express their joy and disbelief at winning the Race, while Ken & Tina express their disappointment but vow to make their marriage work. Andrew & Dan express their elation at making it to third place.
