Eleven teams are in the fray to win a trip to Hoh Xil Natural Reserve on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau valued at 400,000 yuan ($62,105), in the reality show The Amazing Race: China Rush (Season Two), which is based on Disney ABC's Emmy Award-winning Amazing Race.
Half the contestants this time are from China. To counter any home advantage to the Chinese, as foreign contestants have to also deal with language barriers and cultural differences, the race organizers have chosen some remote locations that will be equally unfamiliar to both.
The 12-episode show will premiere at 8 p.m. on ICS on Aug 7 and its Chinese version will be aired on Dragon TV at 2:10 p.m. the same day.
