Cast and crew from the hit CBS reality show “The Amazing Race” were in Winnipeg on Friday — this, according to Dave Wheeler at Power 97.
Wheels said in an e-mail late Monday that they were filming here for the next season, and needed to shoot a bowling scene. Because there isn’t five-pin bowling in the U.S., they had to make a stop at Dakota Lanes in St. Vital.
The shoot apparently took an hour and a half.
No word if Winnipeg was a scheduled stop, or a spur of the moment decision made by production staff.
Forget The Forks, Winnipeg is now known for its bowling centres. But The Forks is still cool, too.
UPDATE: According to some readers, it wasn’t the TV show that was in town, but rather Family Services doing their own Amazing Race.
