HuffPost Travel talked with Elise Doganieri, now the show's executive producer and a co-creator along with her husband, about the logistics of weaving such an intricate, time-sensitive and travel-heavy program. Turns out the system is a lot more nonchalant -- but no less complex -- than you might think. Here's how they do it. Doganieri and van Munster start as any masterminds of a day world tour would: And very little is off-limits.
After mapping out a basic route, van Munster scouts the actual locations while Doganieri stays home to cast the teams. On his scouting tour, van Munster might talk with hotels, meet with local producers or survey spots for the show's famous Roadblock challenges.

When he comes back, Doganieri has a slate of contestants ready to go. That's when the couple heads to The War Room, where every episode of the season gets mapped out on a wall along with Roadblocks, challenges and Pit Stops. It's a giant puzzle of the most exhilarating kind.
After being in the media business for decades, van Munster has production contacts all over the world. The show works with "local facilitators" in each season's host countries to coordinate filming permits, hotel rooms, translators and hire local cameramen, who take extra shots to supplement the cameramen that travel with the teams. By this point, "each country has all the details about what we have to do," Doganieri says.
Doganieri is adamant that "The Amazing Race"'s traveling camera and sound crew is the show's secret weapon. They're the best at what they do. The show's story team follows too, to keep track of emerging plot lines and start the editing process even as the race continues to unfold. Sometimes, they have to pull last-minute location swaps in the middle of the desert.
After setting up the trap properly, teams had to mimic a guineafowl and trick one to the trap before receiving their next clue.

Once the goats were delivered and teams were returned to the starting point, they received their next clue. The Detour was a choice between Brains or Brawn.
In Brains, teams had to go on a horseback safari and spot ten wooden animal cutouts: They then traveled to a nearby campsite and arranged a set of tiles featuring the silhouettes of the animals in the order they appeared. There were tiles for animals they did not see, and none of the tiles representing the hippopotamus, but there was one for the heron.
Once they arranged the tiles in the right order, they received their next clue; if not, they had to go back to the safari before being allowed another attempt to arrange the tiles.
