So, the new season has started not so long ago, and will visit 3 countries: South Korea, Philippines and Australia. It's going to be called Pékin Express : le Passager mystčre (the mystery passenger), because in some times during the race, teams will have to travel with a tv host from M6 (Sandrine Corman, Stéphane Plaza (those two already participated to the vip season), Faustine Bollaert, Alex Goude, Mac Lesggy).
And finally, the best for the end, it will be an All-Star season!! :hearts:

Which refers to Ludovic & Samuel from Pékin Express 6. Heres a link to the picture taken!

I think it will be a great season. I am not surprised that the belgians brother came back, they made a very good season last year and they lose at the last part of the final leg.

Belgium's version of 'Amazing Race' films in PHL
By ROWENA JOY A. SANCHEZJanuary 19, 2012,
 
‘Peking Express’ will feature various tourist spots in the PhilippinesMANILA, Philippines – The Philippines is fast becoming a shooting destination for international entertainment projects, the latest of which is “Peking Express,” considered as the Belgian counterpart of the hit US reality show “The Amazing Race.”

Shortly after cameras rolled in Manila for the Hollywood spy thriller “The Bourne Legacy,” and “American Idol” singer-songwriter David Archuleta started shooting for the TV5 mini-series “Nandito Ako,” a contingent of 61 crew members and talents has flown into the country to shoot five out of 12 episodes of “Peking Express,” reported Interaksyon.com.

Shooting for “Peking Express” is scheduled from Jan. 18 to Feb. 2.

The contestants—composed of eight French couples—will traverse various tourist sites in Luzon. According to Interaksyon, the itinerary “is expected to go through Manila-Bagac-Cervantes-Bontoc-Angeles-Pinatubo Volcano-Quezon-Candelaria-Talisay,” and back to the country’s capital.

The show, which began in 2004 and already in its seventh season, sends couples to hitchhike from one country to another, testing their skills and spirit as teams while learning about a culture different from their own. Competition in the current season began in Seoul, South Korea, and will culminate in Sydney, Australia.

As part of the challenge, each of the contestants are given merely one euro a day (about P56 pesos as of this writing), and must devise resourceful plans in order for them to reach their destinations and fulfill their tasks, with the production team following their quest.

One team will be eliminated per episode until two couples remain to battle it out in the finale.

“Peking Express” has also been adapted in other European territories such as Germany, Scandinavia, France, and Spain.

OMG they are spoiling the entire route :cmas18 :lol:
And they're saying eight couples; so this probably means they eliminated two teams in South Korea (if it's like the other seasons of course, which had 10 teams)

I'm sorry but it isn't that Belgium version of Peking Express, it is the Dutch version of Peking Express. I know that for sure.

The host of Pékin Express, Stéphane Rotenberg, is injured during the filming of the race. He was the victim of a side car accident and he got a trausma head, leg bruise and wounds on her face. He is safe and the filming is stopping. Some informations here: http://www.purepeople.com/article/stephane-rotenberg-victime-d-un-accident-de-la-route-dans-pekin-express_a94840/1

Thanks for the information, jmv1986! It's a big help.  :tu  Your friend probably saw the Belgium version of The Amazing Race, which we know from newspaper articles is filming at various places in the Philippines through Feb 2nd. The Norwegian Amazing Race was in Macau a few days ago and could possibly be headed to the Philippines, but they could be going almost anywhere.

Welcome to RFF!

I think this is TAR Belgium. I can't match up the teams in the pictures with the TAR Norwegian teams in this message:

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,26704.msg701136.html#msg701136.

Those are great pictures! Thanks for sharing them. If it is TAR Belgium, these are the first pictures we have of them.

Putting the link of the post from the TAR Norway thread here:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,26342.msg709311.html#msg709311

pic 2 is Ludovic from Ludovic & Samuel from PÉ6
pic 1 & 4, I would think it's Frédéric & Jessica from PÉ5 or maybe Jacky & Alexia from PÉ4?
pic 3, beside the red car, maybe it's Marcelle & Nicole from PÉ4 but I'm not shure, but it's definitely a F/F team

Here's a couple of real time tweets from a couple of people who see some filming in the Makati area of Manila RIGHT NOW. To be more precise one says she sees them in the Ayala Triangle area which appears to be a public garden near the highrise area. The other one doesn't say where she is.

I believe that flag has the logo used on Pekin Express. Also, there is at least one racer wearing a backpack in the background.

The metal structure in the background with low triangular pyramids can be seen in this panoramic view:
