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:
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
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.

And we have the full celebrity cast announced a few days ago. Once again including some returning celebrities.

http://www.qinbaol.com/ent/20170422/1730418828.html





It does seem to suggest that it feature start with 13 teams. The article also mentions they'll starting filming on the 3rd quarter - hence around July~September.

The cast seems to have changed to some of the people who were suggested previsously.

1)
范冰冰+李晨 - Dating
Fan Bing Bing (Singer, Actress, Producer from Shantung)
Jerry Li (Actor, Singer, Director from Beijing)

2)
钟汉良+?? -
Wallace Chung  (Singer, Actor, Dancer from Hong Kong)

3)
彭于晏+??
Eddie Peng (Actor and Singer from Penghu, Taiwan)
 
4)
金星+ Hans(??)
Jin Xing
Hans is not listed in the article, or even featured (as he's not a celebrity) but I assume she'll be racing with her husband again.

5)
李宇春+??
Chris Lee (Female Singer from Chengtu)

6)
张继科+ 张传铭
Zhang Jike (Table Tennis Olympic Medalist in London and Rio from QingDao) and his father / coach Zhang Chuanming
- It was previsously reported he'd be racing with his father, but didn't find confirmation from newest articles.
(Update - adding the father's name, who's also his coach

7)
谢娜+?
Nana Tse (Actress and host from Szechuan)   
She's married to singer Jason Zhang, but since he's not listed among the featured celebrities, she's not racing with her husband

8 )
马思纯+欧豪 - Dating
Sandra Ma (Actress from Anhui)
Oho Ou (A Singer, former contestant for 《超级男声》- "Super Boy" - competition show, another variation to the PopIdol/TheVoice/XFactor type of program in 2013 - he was 1st runner-up for that season )
They Co-Starred in the 2014 movie The Left Ear.
(Update: Upon reviewing the press conference listing, he wasn't listed in article, but appear as same block as Sandra on the picture)

9)
福原爱+江宏杰 - Married
Ai Fukuhara (Japenese Table Tennis Ranked #4 of the World in 2015. She trained and played in mainland China and is very famous there. Part of )
Chiang Hung-Chieh  (Taiwanese Table Tennis Player)

10)
蔡国庆+??
Cai Guoqing (Host, Singer Actor from Beijing)

11)
林依轮 + Father Father and Son
Allen Lin (Actor, Singer and Singer from Beijing )

12)
2 Members from SNH48 - Lu Ting & Zeng Yanfen??

13)
蒋劲夫
Jiang Jingfu (Model, Singer and Actor from Hunan)

Unless some of the individual celebrities listed are actually racing together as Friends. Couldn't get a confirmation either way. So for now, I am listing them as separate teams.
Especially cause there are still only 10 legs.

Wow! That's another great cast. Like, for me who isn't as in tune with Chinese pop culture, I actually know a couple of these celebrities.

And yay! I definitely hope it is Jin Xing and Hans again, even if for a few Legs.

It never gets old how the Asia versions announce up front, "these are our teams! And here's everywhere we're going to go!". Makes tracking filming so much easier :D

And if it is Jin Xing and Hans again, hopefully they don't need to be saved 2 legs in a row. That kinda soured me on them :(

I re-uploaded the pictures showing the celebrities from the press conference, but still haven't been able to track down  the proper team breakdown whether we're actually getting 13 teams or whether some of the celebs listed individually will actually participate together. Added a few names.

Until we get the press pics, hopefully these can help.

First some speculation:
- Hans Still not confirmed but will be listing him anyway.
- 3) 彭于晏 Eddie Peng and 13) 蒋劲夫 Jiang Jingfu seem very likely to be racing together, as several websites list them as very close friends. So listing them together below.


1) 范冰冰Fan Bing Bing+李晨Jerry Li - Dating


2) 钟汉良Wallace Chung


3)彭于晏Eddie Peng + 13)蒋劲夫Jiang Jingfu  - Friends

 
4)金星Jin Xing+ Hans(??) - Married


5)李宇春Chris Lee


6)张继科Zhang Jike+ 张传铭Zhang Chuanming - Father and Son / Coach and Athlete


7)谢娜Nana Tse+??


8 )马思纯Sandra Ma+欧豪Oho Ou - Dating


9)福原爱Ai Fukuhara+江宏杰Chiang Hung-Chieh - Married


10)蔡国庆Cai Guoqing+??


11)林依轮Allen Lin + Father Father and Son


12)2 Members from SNH48 - Lu Ting & Zeng Yanfen??
