Let the race begin! ‘Amazing Race: China Rush’ airs this weekend


Contrary to popular opinion, reality shows in China don’t begin and end at dating shows. “Amazing Race: China Rush”, starting August 8, throws adventure into the mix
6 August, 2010

Quote
On your recent travels around China, if you happened to notice a crowd of hectic foreigners chased by cameras, it was sadly probably not a celebrity tour group, but more likely part of the filming for International Channel Shanghai's (ICS) latest reality show, “The Amazing Race: China Rush.”

Competitors
Based on the international “Amazing Race” show format, “The Amazing Race: China Rush,” which debuts this Sunday, August 8 on ICS, features 10 teams racing through 11 Chinese cities with the franchise's last-one-out elimination system, and featuring physical challenges and extreme sports contests that audiences are used to seeing on Western reality shows.

 
I learned that Chinese people have an incredibly high tolerance level when it comes to foreigners behaving strangely ... the cab driver's watching all of this [taping] in his rear view mirror with a bemused look on his face that says, ‘laowai ... whatever.’
— Eric Ransdell, Fly Flims co-founder, director of "The Amazing Race: China Rush"Their prize for this China quest? A world tour provided by travelzen.com. Not too shabby.

Although some contestants were already living in China, three of the two-person teams came to the Middle Kingdom especially for the show.

Contestants were chosen from a variety of backgrounds and countries, from American middle-aged expatriate moms (Karen and Lisa) to Latvian reality TV stars, and countries including Australia, Kenya, India, Mexico, Latvia, the United States and Canada.

"It's such a motley crew, but they're going to make for great television," says Chinese-American host Allan Wu, who has hosted all three seasons of' “The Amazing Race Asia,” to China Daily.

The show’s director and Fly Films co-founder Eric Ransdell agrees, but says the people reflect the make-up of Shanghai and the Expo where the show began and ended. “[The Amazing Race: China Rush] was timed to be broadcast through the last half of Expo. We were cognizant in terms of casting that this was the Expo year in Shanghai and we wanted a truly international cast,” he explains.

“We recruited some teams from abroad, including a pair of Masai warriors that I had met a few years ago at a friend's safari camp in central Kenya. We also brought in a team from Latvia and a team from Australia, in addition to having teams from India, Mexico, Canada, the United States and the UK who were cast here in China.”

The team descriptions in Chinese are hilariously good/bad! Some direct translations:

Reality TV Veterans, 选秀狂人: Madmen of talent shows
Best Mates, 澳洲帅哥: Cute guys from Australia
Ultra-Marathoners, 暴走佳丽: Hiking (also translatable as "neurotic", or "furiously walking") pageant girls
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I wish I was at my home. There, I get to watch Chinese channels (even though we're Filipinos, and can't understand a leak of Chinese. See note below) and I believe one channel there aired a commercial of TAR China. But now, I'm far from home, there's no TV here, and I'm school and bed-ridden. :groan: :'( :lol:

NOTE: Wonder how chinese channels are put into Filipino TV? Simple, our cable network (those who supply new channels) is so tricky, and instead of putting 72 channels of watchable and understandable shows, they put half of the 72 as Chinese, Indian, and Taiwanese Channels. :lol3:

If you get it maybe.?  :duno:  So far I have no way to watch either.



Everyone PLEASE remember that NO links to uploads should be posted on the forum, unless it is an official one from the producers. If you get another one or can make one either PM me or email me at the address in my profile and I will make a place for us all to see them and announce that here. :tup:

Here's hoping!!  :yess:

A couple of nice pictures from the starting line: http://www.icshanghai.com/html/2010/08/06/3009.html

Does ICS have a live stream of their channel on their website?  I see something labeled "ICS LIVE" on it.  http://www.icshanghai.com/

Thanks for the preview, georgiapeach.  It definitely looks like it's going to be in HD.
