The Amazing Race Takes Home 9th Emmy
The Amazing Race maintains its Emmy dominance winning its 9th Emmy in 10 nominations for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program.
TAR submitted Episode 8 of season 20, “Let Them Drink Their Haterade” and fended off its fellow repeat nominees plus darkhorse newcomer, NBC’s The Voice. TAR’s only loss was in 2010 to Top Chef.
In the Host of a Reality-Competition Program category, Tom Bergeron from Dancing with the Stars won his first Emmy and broke Jeff Probst’s own hold in the category after not being nominated this year. TAR host Phil Keoghan doesn’t go home empty handed though as he gets his own statue as part of the TAR production team.
