The Amazing Race reality show has been shot at the streets of the capital city of Azerbaijan.

Unusual things took place in the Azerbaijani capital city in December 2011-the capital city residents  were looking with surprise at odd foreigners who were rushing somewhere as if someone is running after them.

The racing was in fact unusual. The clarity to the issue was brought by the news service of CineX film company which said that at that very period the world famous reality show The Amazing Race was shot under support of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Baku, while the foreigners were not simple tourists but participants of this television show. Among  participants there were twin brothers, 2 clowns and  even 2 intelligence agents.

The Amazing race is one of the best, complex and large scale television reality shows. It is also recognized as the most interesting and impressive. The fact is proven by awarding Emmy premium in the nomination ‘Best reality-show’ to the project. The show shot in Baku can be nominated for Emmy next time.

The unusual show involves 11 teams of two people linked to each other with different kinship, friendly or professional ties (brothers, sisters, spouses, friends and so on) have been travelling in different cities of the world within 22 days, overcoming all obstacles in a hope to get to the final and win a million of dollars.

According to the news service for CineX, the details of the reality show are not made public and by conditions of the project the information about it is still strictly confidential. As is known, the reason will start on CBS channel on 19 February and the series in Baku will be broadcast on 25 March.
