I haven't given up hope...they are asking for English speaking production!! :yess:

Dånooky:
Maybe it's an Amazing Race: China for non-Chinese?

slayton:
I'm interested to see if they cast non-Mandarin speakers.

From a viewership perspective, it would make more sense to have the racers speak Mandarin, although non-Mandarin speakers would probably provide more drama. 

slayton:
Great news.

The show, titled China Rush, is a 12-episode series to be shot in locations across China. The name sounds like an energy drink, but it could be kind of cool. Interested in being on the show? They're currently seeking English-speaking applicants -- no Mandarin skills necessary -- from anywhere in the world to be on China Rush:
