This year’s program, which will be broadcasted on VTV3 every Friday at 8 p.m. starting from July 26, focuses on the participation of models/actors Nhan Phuc Vinh, Ha Viet Dung, Pham Anh Tuan, Diep Lam Anh, Thu Hien, Thanh Hoa, tennis star Thuy Dung, popular DJs Kim Lee and Pharreal Phuong, singers Dinh Tien Dat, Pha Le and S.T (of 365 Band).

“We hope viewers will find this year’s program an interesting chance to see celebrities in real life,” said Vu Thanh Huong from VTV3 at the event.

Contestants will be challenged over 12 episodes in secret locations around the country. There are a number of legs where teams travel and complete various tasks to obtain clues to help them progress to a Pit Stop, where they’re given a chance to rest and recover before starting the next leg. The first team to arrive at a Pit Stop is often awarded a prize, while the last team may be eliminated from the show.

The final leg will feature the final three teams with the first to arrive at the final destination scooping a first prize of VND300 million.

This year actor Huy Khanh from reality show Vietnam Idol will
replace predecessor Dustin Nguyen by hosting the show.
