Hundreds Audition to be Part of 'The Amazing Race'

A chance to win a $1 million and an opportunity to race around the world brought out a crowd Friday.

People started lining up Thursday afternoon for a casting call for the Emmy-winning show “The Amazing Race.” The line of people auditioning was out the door much of the day at the Colleen’s Classic Consignment store on Cheyenne Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard.  

Teams of two were given one minute in front of the camera to explain to show producers why they should be in the next edition of the race.

"I think it is going to be everything I dreamed it would be. There is nothing more I like than to just travel the world, see how people live and try new things," hopeful racer Emily Woods said.

“We are good people. I think we are interesting. I think they will like us, but there are a lot of people," hopeful racer Douglas Woods said.

Nearly 300 people made audition tapes at the open casting call.
