CBS aim to prolong their Emmy Award-wining series "The Amazing Race" for one more season. Through their Twitter, the network announced that there will be the 15th leg of the race around the world for broadcast in 2009-2010 season.
Auditions for the new season have been opened and the requirements can been seen at CBS.com. Host Phil Keoghan will appear at the open casting calls during his bike ride across America which will end in NYC on May 9. Among the stops he is making are in Chicago (April 24), Pittsburgh (May 1) and New York (May 8).
In the casting call, pairs will tape a video about two minutes long, describing why they are worthy to be picked. Before that, they are also required to fill in a 13-page form that will help better understanding the hopefuls. Among the questions are "Do you have any phobias?" and "What is your opinion about foreigners?"
With five teams left, the current season of "Amazing Race" will wind down on May 10. The show has been averaging 10.9 million viewers each week.
