The Polish Version Of Pekin Express
« on: June 27, 2016, 01:56:15 AM »
Georgiapeach found a Vietnamese news article with pictures about a Polish version of the Amazing Race filming in several locations in Vietnam back in May. The logo looks like Pekin Express and they do tend to film several legs in a country before moving on, so I think this is a Polish version of Pekin Express.

Here's the original article:

Here's the English translation from the Bing translator:

On May 15, the film crew program "The amazing race" of Poland have taken some footage in HA Long.

Filming was done at the fish market area in HA Long city.



Props are made in the form of fishing simulation tool of the native population.

The program will be broadcast in Poland, then was sell the copyright. Reportedly, after the Quang Ninh, the delegation will continue to spin in Hai Phong, Ninh Binh, Lao Cai, Lai Chau and Dien Bien.

It's called 'Azja Express' which means 'Asia Express'.
8 teams of 2 compete to win the race. It's like celebrity version of the show (8 celebrities + their friends).

Teams are:
Pascal & Paweł (TV chef + his friend, also chef)
Renata & Weronika (model + her friend)
Hanna & Łukasz (news reporter + fashion designer)
Iza & Leszek (actress + actor)
Małgorzata & Radosław (TV host + ex-soccer player)
Przemysław & Darek (ex-kickboxer + his firend who took part in Top Chef and Celebrity Splash)
Agnieszka & Maria (actress + actress)
Michał & Ludwik (actor + his friend)

The route of the race is Vietnam - Laos - Cambodia - Thailand.
The start of the race was in Vietnam, the finish line is in Bangkok, Thailand.

This show has started on September 7th. It will be broadcasted on Wednesdays at 9.30 PM. Each episode is 60-65 min long (without commercials).

The first episode was watched by 2.08 mln people. (share:  17,24% among the viewers of age 4+ and 24,43% among the viewers of age 16-49). 24,43% is really great result. The average share of this network is like 10% (16-49 age group).

Not really. It's a little bit different. The biggest difference is that teams have only $1 for each leg. They have to look for a free accommodation, food and transport.
There is also less tasks and during the race they can win immunities and amulets (which can be exchanged for cash after the race).

Thanks for the information, Drake! It's so hard to find more about a show like this one. Most of the time we never even hear about it.

Without having watched an episode, my impression is that teams have to find ways to get around (hitchhike), places to sleep (get invited to stay in a home or ask a farmer to let them sleep in a barn) and get food. A couple of the seasons have looked amazing and I need to go look to see if they are still online. The French version traveled through Cuba, Mexico and the Southern US a few years back (2013) and looked like a fun watch. The most interesting looking one was also the French version (2012) through South Korea and the Philippines and then on to Australia. Australia was having the worst flooding in their country's history at the time and the teams were racing right through the middle of it. The Australian authorities were NOT happy to put it mildly. It was some of the most interesting spoiler hunting I've ever done.

We don't talk about Pekin Express much around here, but there may have been more versions of it than there have been of TAR. Wikipedia shows a Dutch/Belgian version (the original), a French version, a Spanish version, a German version, an Italian version, a Scandinavian version, a Moroccan version and new this year, a Mexican version, a Colombian version and a Polish version. I counted up the various races and came up with 35 seasons under one listing and 37 under another listing. So, there are plenty of them out there.
