Okay, I've read the thread that spoke about these shows, but I need DETAILS!! I have one scheduled for April 8th. We are doing a grilling show. One team will be making the Teriyaki Pork Kebobs from the Casual Cooking cookbook and the other will be making the Profiterole Puffs.

I want to make sure I make it fun and make it make sense. I want to incorporate detours and pit stops, but am unsure how. Both recipes have a bit of down time; the kebobs cook for 15 minutes and the puffs have a 22 minute baking time.

Those of you who do these shows (and successfully) please give me some tips and pointers or an out and out script.

THANK YOU!!:D

Good luck

I have a big party tomorrow night that I am doing an Amazing Race show with - we have about 15 people so we are dividing into 3 teams and making: Triple Chocolate Fruit Pizza, Tiramisu Brownie Squares and the Clubhouse Chicken Squares. Nervous but very excited all in the same boat! Lord willing this will become a regular thing for me.

I have done The Amazing race shows before, with great success, HOWEVER, last weekend it FLOPPED, Big time. The host booked from an amazing race show, and insisted she have one also. She ended up with 22 people there, but only 3 people wanted to participate. Everyone else was so busy talking, ect, they did not want to become involved. I put so much work into the planning of it, and was a bit upset in the reaction of the guests. My husband ended up coming up from the basement, from the "guys room" and joining a team, so we had 2 teams of 2. I ended up taking orders while they made the recipe. I learned an important lesson. Make sure your host KNOWS her guests. Also, just because there are a lot of guests, does not mean it will be big sales. It will close just at $500. I did not even get to do a demo, and everyone was so rude, I was just glad to pack up and leave.

The thing is my host is expecting 4-5 couples. So I was going to split the teams by gender and have the winning team receive 10% off their order, but that's not a great prize because each spouse isn't going to place a separate order. So, they will have to stay with their "other" for the race. For me I wanted them split up so they could tell each other about all of the products used. Oh well...maybe next time I'll be more creative with a prize.
