Fan Bingbing? Damn, TAR China always gets big celebs.
I wonder if the male team that Liu Chang & Jin Dachuan replaced last year will join this year?

Looking forward to the Israel Leg!

I wonder if that new twist is like an Intersection, but switch partners to complete a task and then reunite with your real partner afterwards. That would be interesting actually. As long as it's not a permanent switch until the end.

Some other teams from this article (http://www.5011.net/yingshi/179499.html):
Table tennis champion Zhang Jike and his father
Actor Zheng Yuan Chang/Joe Cheng
SNH48 members (again! lol) Lu Ting & Zeng Yanfen
Shenzhen TV hosts/anchors 人强子 & 张星月

Been reading a bit about the new season, will update this post, as I go through some articles.
http://www.gd.chinanews.com/2017/2017-03-29/2/381963.shtml (http://www.gd.chinanews.com/2017/2017-03-29/2/381963.shtml)
There's a new title sponsor for the season 黑黑乳 which is a line of sesame based instant drinks.

Just as Season 3 had an Olympic Games theme, the new season is subtitled "Raiders of the Lost Ark" - that's the Indiana Jones bit of the season, with all destinations having some ties to historic sites, with historical ties with China (It almost reminded me how TAR Can international legs, try to always tie them to Canada).

Just a reminder for the those who haven't followed TAR China before, even though there's a map showing all the destinations, unlike most other entries to the franchise the show is not filmed continually. It is filmed in small bursts with a few legs at a time.
