concept from Beijing Express: Shock Duos
Program Beijing Express has been broadcast since January 15, 2006 and currently has 16 seasons. This program is adapted from the Dutch-Belgian version, Beijing Expressmade in 2004. At the presentation, we find Stéphane Rotenberg from the first episode.
Beijing Express is a race that crosses several countries which competed several teams consisting of two people. These pairs compete on tests that are sport, logic, skill… enabling them to advance to reach the next stage. The goal of each team is tocome first in a different stage to collect as many amulets as possible to collect wins and win up to €100,000 in terms of final victory.
Different from the classic season Beijing Express, in which the candidates participate to win a sum of money to share with their partners, in the “Duos de choc” edition, each team plays for a good cause. Actually, their goal was to raise as much funds as possible and donate to the associations they have decided to represent.
If the race is shorter than in the classic season, the difficulty of the event remains the same and the celebrity does not receive no special treatment. So, each team starts the race with 1 euro budget per day and per person. To get around, candidates must walk, run, hitchhike (where permitted), or use other means of transportation depending on the event (oars, kayaks, bicycles, etc.). They must also be successfully accepted by the locals in order to sleep and eat for free, at the risk of being deprived of food and sleeping under the stars.
The ordeal of Beijing Express
Legendary race Beijing Express punctuated by tests involving the candidate’s logic and skills. Among the important ones are:
- Immunity test
- Trial for profit
- No car sign
- Last duel
- Hell’s Beacon
- Quick Quiz
This edition of “Duos de Chocs” is no exception. Celebrity or not, teams must submit to this test, without preferential treatment. It’s up to you to find which cult event Beijing Express candidate must take.
