This first stage of the race, which started in Bali, was marked by the abandonment of Brandon and Nathan, two Belgian brothers, who encountered difficulties from the first event. Not comfortable with hitchhiking, having not found accommodation for the night, the twins preferred to leave the adventure. Having never traveled in their lives, “ they thought they were capable of going to the ends of the earth, but the reality was harsher than anything they had imagined », Explained Stéphane Rotenberg in voice-over. “ I notice that I don’t necessarily have the shoulders » for “Beijing express”, justifies one of the brothers, “ we tried but we can see that we can’t do it “. As provided by the regulations, they will be replaced by a new team during the second episode.
“ When it’s, ‘I can’t do it, I’m giving up’, it’s the worst situation for us », explained Stéphane Rotenberg on Sud Radio. “ We had thousands of people who wanted to go and who were ready to go all the way. It’s because we missed each other “, added the host of “Pekin Express” and “Top Chef”.
“We take it for ourselves”
Dropouts are not very common in the show and often occur later in the game and often forced (like the Northerners Aurore and Jonathan who had to quit after their car accident.) It’s happened five or six times in eighteen years.”clarified Stéphane Rotenberg, still on Sud Radio, who stressed that the teams always took it badly because it means that the casting is bad, that the point of weakness has not been detected: “ We take it personally, because we were wrong. At casting, everyone says they want to win, but we have to be able to spot the little weakness that makes people give up.”.
Next episode next Thursday, with still the sweet Patrick and his granddaughter Myriam.
