Pechino Express - The Italian Version of Pékin Express
« on: October 15, 2014, 09:19:17 AM »
I was looking through Twitter and came across this tweet:

New blog post : http://rinaz.net/2014/10/pechino-express/ … Italian version of The Amazing Race in Singapore!


Interesting! So I went to http://rinaz.net/2014/10/pechino-express/. I found a fairly detailed story with lots of pictures about the show Pechino Express. It sounds like an Italian clone of Pékin Express. Pechino is Italian for Beijing. Traveling frugally, having to get help from the local people to move forward in the race, etc. At first glance it may not be as hardcore as Pékin Express. It was in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur while Pékin Express (in my limited exposure) has gone to rural areas more than large cities. It appears that Pechino Express has already run 6-7 episodes and have 2 left before the end of the season. I don't know if there were any earlier seasons.

I'm at work and can't explore this further right now. So the details are up to others to dig up, unless I can later. I did find the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PechinoExpress. More pictures there and more info in Italian. I haven't tried to translate it yet. Also, they have a web page at http://www.pechinoexpress.rai.it. I haven't explored that much at all.

This also appears to solve one of my mystery sightings from last July in Kuala Lumpur, though I didn't see the woman in the picture in the Pechino Express pictures.

For information, the french version of this reality tv show is deleted after 10 seasons due to low ratings.

Apparently Pechino Express is currently filming their next season in Ecuador.

This translates to

The Italian version of the Amazing Race is filming in Ecuador.

I can't capture instagram images but it shows a man standing in front of a Pechino Express Banner, what looks like a red photo shoot backdrop area with several cameras set up and 2 packbacks labelled "Roberto" and Fariba".

The Facebook page and rai.it homepage for the show don't show any updates since I posted the above last fall.

Surfed Warriewood this morning. Came out of the water and was surrounded by film crews. " The Amazing Race - Italy " were recording there, so keep an eye out for me in the background if you watch Italian tv. arrivederci from sheffo

Typical And in the road you met with some participants from an Italian reality like #AmazingRace, you help them to reach Santa Marta and you appear on Italian TV.
