Yippee!! This is GREAT news and shows a definite commitment to the show, since they have not waited to see how season 2 does in ratings.

Thanks weihen!! :hearts:

ICS hasn't officially announced the renewal of CR3, but judging from ICS employees' comments on Weibo.com, we know they've acquiesced in this news.

Reception of application for CR3 will start after the CR2 finale, I think :)

Chinese Driver's License? Can it be international driver's license?
So that means the application is open for the residents of China only?

China does not accept international driver's license. Anyone who wants to drive in China has to take Chinese driving course and pass the test to get a Chinese driver's licence. But there's no restriction of driving learner's nationality.

I'm surprised that they've included this rule without specifying that it must be a Chinese driving license. As I recall, they were forced to make a last minute change of a couple of teams for Season Two due to confusion as to the driving laws!

Yes...I hope this season they can bring a really self-driving leg rather than doing one task.

But they changed the rules with the second season. My understanding was that they only picked people that were in China.

I sent them an e-mail and they replied fast!

My Questions:
1. When is the due of the application?
2. What if both members doesn't live in China, can they still apply?
3. How can we acquire a Chinese Driver's License if we're not a resident of China?

1. Dec. 31
 2.yes  :yess:
3.make your driving liscence works in China. Through some procedures. Can your consult the communication department ot your country? Cheers.

After an unsuccessful application first time around, I'm keeping my fingers crossed again this time! Wish me luck!

Good luck, Dom El! It would be awesome to have a TAR host on TAR! (You would be able to see how things really happen and put them in your game!)

Found this on the official website in regards to applications

An open audition will be held in Shanghai in early Janurary. Those unable to attend may also upload an application video on youku.com. (Title format: The Amazing Race China Rush Season 3 Application Video + contestant name). Then, send the video link to chinarush@icshanghai.com. Recruitment info will be updated at weibo.com/chinarush and our official website www.chinarush.cn. Good luck!

The Youku route seems like another way you can apply to be on the show if you can't get the Shanghai for open auditions or email the video to them.

I found a tweet that may be referring to China Rush 3. I'll withhold the name because I don't want to hurt his chances of being picked.

I just got an email to be cast in an online Chinese adventure reality show similar to The Amazing Race. o.O

The person doesn't sound very interested but asked for more information. The online part doesn't match China Rush, but that could be an error. Does anyone know of an online Chinese adventure reality show similar to The Amazing Race?

I don't know... China Rush has nothing to do with something "online." Actually I don't think there's any official online reality show in China.

Although we do have online game for The Amazing Race on Baidu Forum, it's just a fans' game, which needs no cast selection at all.

I deduce it may be a deception! Watch out! :sab

Apparently China Rush is recruiting in the US:

JC Nashville @JCNashAuditions
John Casablanca Grads, casting season three of The Amazing Race: China Rush. Submit here: jcgrads.com/?b=4349
31 Jan


That link goes to a login page, so I expect you'd have to be a graduate of their training to get in for the details. They were posting this under many titles like JC Baltimore and JC Tulsa, so it sounds like they are trying to get the word out nationally.

Facebook and Renren have no updates at all. The latest Renren page hasn't mentioned the finale of S2 yet. Contestants from S2 are still in the race according to the page. :lol:

Don't know if this is the right place to post this:

Season 3 of TAR: CR will be the last season produced by ICS. :'( It doesn't preclude the possibility that other TV stations may pick it up someday, but I truly doubt it.

The premiere will be at 23:50 on Aug 23rd on Dragon TV, and at 20:00 on Aug 26th on ICS.

ICS buy  3 seasons copyrights  of TAR when they decided to produce CR1...I think they will decide if they will produce more seasons of TARCR by this season's view rating

The Amazing Race: China Rush Season 3 Press Conference and Premiere
 
Shanghai,Aug.15,2012 - Following the success of the first two seasons of The Amazing Race: China Rush, ICS and Dragon TV have once again teamed up this year to launch 12 all-new heart-racing episodes for their third season.
Disney's internationally-renown reality show–The Amazing Race–has won 8 Primetime Emmy Awards, making it one of the most successful reality television shows of all time. The first two seasons of China Rush, China's only official version of the award-winning format, spawned a tidal-wave of new fans from audiences both home and abroad. Furthermore, China Rush Season One recently won a Highly Commended Award for BEST ADAPTATION OF AN EXISTING FORMAT at the Asian Television Awards.
In addition to the same high-energy blend of travel, culture and dramatic challenges that the first two seasons offered, China Rush Season 3 has added an even more eye-catching line-up of locations and characters.
This season has extended its race itinerary to include some of China's most unique and intriguing locations; including Taiwan, Jilin Province, Heilongjiang,Guizhou Province and many more. Teams will be racing in some of the most extreme climates and terrine that this vast nation has to offer.
Season 3 also features 11 highly competitive teams of two hailing from across China and the world, racing for a trip around the world. This season's Chinese contestants, which make up more than half of the cast, are as diverse in personality as they are in the areas they come from. For example, one team of Liaoning Province cousins and street-side barbeque skewer salesmen used their one-of-a-kind style of singing and dancing while cooking to gain national fame on the second season of China's Got Talent. Now they've brought their unique talents to a different kind of reality competition to prove they are more than just“BBQ Boys”. A team of professional models from Taipei may look frail, but are full of surprises as they face their fears. Then there is the dating couple from Dalian, on a quest to show their parents and all of China that they have what it takes to bring their relationship to the next level.
Like the Chinese teams, this season's foreign contestants are diverse, memorable and extremely determined. International contestants come from as far as Sweden, Malaysia, Australia, Canada, Scotland and the United States. One pair of former Harvard University roommates seem to be the full package, presenting themselves as the epitome of education, culture and athletics. Plus, a pair of fraternal twins from Penang, Malaysia make China Rush history as the first foreign team to use Mandarin as their primary language on the race. The brother and sister hope the adventure will be an opportunity to discover China and their Chinese roots for the first time; that is, if they can overcome their vastly different personalities.
As with Season 2, China Rush Season 3 features two versions, a Chinese-language version and English-language version. The English version will broadcast with both Chinese and English subtitles at 20:00 every Sunday on ICS, starting August 26th; while the Chinese-language version will broadcast at 16:00 every Saturday on Dragon TV, starting September 1st. Both versions will once again be hosted by Chinese-American TV personality Allan Wu.
In addition to government support on the local and national level, production of China Rush Season 3 is also supported by several international brands, such as Toyota and Hilton.

SO EXCITED!  :hearts:

'The Amazing Race:' Travel the 'real China' in 576 minutes

The third season of the China edition covers a wider range of regions than ever. So wide not even the Chinese participants know where they are.

“The Amazing Race" is not just another game show in China. The Chinese consider it an ingenious means to show the "real China" to the outside world.

"The show is not only promoting the local culture and customs but also the urban development achievement," said Ge Xiaowei (葛晓纬), one of the producers of the program's China edition, “The Amazing Race: China Rush” ("China Rush" in short).

A copyright cooperation between Disney ABC and the International Channel of Shanghai (ICS), “China Rush” has just wrapped up production of the third season and is set to air from this month.

The China even the Chinese don’t know about

According to the show’s production company ICS, season three covers a wider geographic range than the previous two seasons, spanning from the China-Russia border in the north to Yunnan Province in the south.

Lei Sheng (雷声), a contestant hailing from Xi’an, said even the Chinese contenders had no clue where they were most of the time while on the road.

“Being Chinese doesn’t give us any advantages,” said Lei, a 40-year-old outdoor experience trainer.

“I have never been to most of the places featured on the show. I’ve never even heard of them before. [The show] goes to the second-tier, third-tier cities, off-the-radar towns and rural villages.”

In this season, 22 contestants (in 11 teams) from seven countries sweep through 11 cities all over China in 12 episodes, each lasting 48 minutes.

The grand prize: a free round-the-world tour for two.

An offbeat guide to China

The upcoming show was dubbed a multi-million renminbi production. But ICS didn’t disclose the exact production cost. It is also keeping its lips tight on the value of the champion’s prize.

The entire season is produced in two versions. Each hosted in one of the two languages -- Mandarin and English -- by American-Chinese Allan Wu (吴振天), who has hosted all three seasons of' “The Amazing Race Asia” and the first two seasons of “China Rush.”

Ge Xiaowei said the program is a great offbeat tour guide to China.

“For example, we have dedicated staff on the team to study the transportations between sites and cities, which are reflected in the show,” said Ge. “These are not random arrangements, but practical information for tourists -- whether one should take the bus, train or fly between these two places.”

Ge added that the show does not follow clichéd tourist routes in China; “instead, it selects exotic destinations with most distinctive culture symbols.”

Having traveled with the team for one month to shoot the show, Ge said her most impressive destinations included Suifenhe (绥芬河), a city of 160,000 in Heilongjiang on the China-Russia border.

“Suifenhe is a very unique city in China due to its geographic location,” Ge explained. “Even the local street vendors can speak fluent Russian.”

Tasks in Suifenhe? Contestants were asked to complete a challenge involving traditional Russian dolls, revealed Ge.

Based on the trailer, the new season also headed to places like the Miao ethnic group in Guizhou and China’s Korean autonomous prefecture Yanbian in Jilin Province.

Reality TV shows: great way to travel the country

“This was a good chance to see a completely different side of a country that I haven’t seen before,” said contestant Nick Black.

Black, 30, is a Shanghai-based sales executive from Scotland whose previous China travel experiences were limited to major Chinese cities.

His most memorable moment of the show was walking off the plane in Heilongjiang at 2 a.m., frozen to death on an April day (“the temperature was like minus 3 or 4 C”).

Rachel Chen, one half of the champion team in the first season, agrees that “China Rush” provides a unique way to travel the massive nation.

The 27-year-old American-Chinese, who joined the show in 2010, said because the program worked with local tourism bureaus around the country, contestants could access places and take part in activities that normal travelers wouldn’t be able to.

Nick Black noted that he’s come to find fun in traveling to an unknown place after the intense trip.

“For some [travelers], before they come [to China], they’re not quite sure what the situation is. For example, if it’s gonna be safe,” said Nick.

“Just come and check out,” added Black. “It’s actually really fun not knowing what’s gonna happen.”

The English version of “The Amazing Race: China Rush” season three will premiere on August 26 on ICS at 8 p.m. (Beijing time). The Mandarin version will start screening on September 1 on international satellite channel Dragon TV at 4 p.m. Both versions air weekly.

Or follow “China Rush” on its official website.

The Chinese version will be broadcast every Saturday at 4pm on Dragon TV, starting September 1. Both versions will once again be hosted by Chinese-American TV personality Allan Wu.

After two successful seasons, ICS and Dragon TV teamed up once again to deliver China's official version of Disney's award-winning format.

I was wondering why they used "China Rush 29" as the title of tonight's show. Seasons 1 and 2 both have 12 eps, so this must be ep "25", so why "29"?  :duno:

I think it is more appropriate to couch it in this way:

Weihen once said that initially ICS bought the copyright for 3 seasons. ICS will decide whether to buy copyright for more seasons by judging from the ratings this season.
