« on: February 19, 2019, 04:01:19 AM »
Filming of season 12 has begun this week in Guatemala. They were yesterday in Atitlan Lake and they has been tonight in Antigua.

It has just appear in French media that the route will be Guatemala, Costa Rica and Colombia.

In Guatemala they will visit Antigua, in Costa Rica they will film in Flores and in Colombia at least in Cartagena de Indias.

Mention that while Guatemala and Colombia were the scenario of the Italian 5th season, it is the first time worldwide that a route of PE will pass through Costa Rica!!!!!

 The comeback o Pékin Express has been such a success after 4 years last season that M6 broadcaster has renewed for 2 more season.
Casting for next summer's annonymous season is open until New Year, and it also has been published that before will be aired a new All-Stars seadon, as in 2012, that will be filmed soon in Russie. The anonymous season will be filmed in February-March probably.

The 6th first legs are finish, here is a small recap.

Three teams are eliminated, Patrice and Benjamin (at leg 2), Fabienne and Jade (at leg 3) and Steve and Martine (due to ankle injury of Martine, health forfeit of the team).

For the moment, a team win 3 legs, Fabrice and Briac. They don't finish worst than 3rd. They are the favorites. The other good team is Kleofina and Julia, ex-miss. The others teams, Laetitia/Aurélie and Mounir/Lydia got some problem of communication and Thomas/Mathieu don't know how to speak spanish at the begining. They are better but are saved last leg because they finish last and it was a non elimination leg.

Next thursday, 4 legs remaining, the 1st in Colombia, at Cartagenas de los Indios.

Another news, there is an all star edition actually in Russia.
