In nine of the 11 years that there’s been an Emmy award for Outstanding Reality-Competition Series, the statuette has gone to The Amazing Race.
And yet, as daunting as that statistic may sound, it’s worth noting that TAR has only reached the podium twice in the last four years. What’s more, its two vanquishers — 2010 champ Top Chef and 2013 winner The Voice — are once again in the hunt for Emmy gold.
Rounding out the category are 10-time nominee Project Runway, nine-time nominee Dancing With the Stars, plus So You Think You Can Dance (seeking an initial win in its fourth attempt).
