Aussie rac­ers head home

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - RICHARD CLUNE

AR­GUABLY more fun than a Con­tiki tour, with equal amounts of hanky panky if some re­ports are be­lieved, this 50,000km, 12-coun­try, 23-city race heads for home tonight, as the re­main­ing con­tes­tants – ‘ surfers’ Nathan and Tyler, ‘ mod­els’ Sam and Re­nae and fa­ther-and-son duo Jeff and Luke – vie for the in­au­gu­ral crown and a tidy quar­ter mil­lion in cash.

It’s a steamy Sin­ga­porean de­tour be­fore some im­pris­oned fun at Fre­man­tle has a smi­ley Grant Bowler an­nounce ‘‘ you’re team No. 1’’ for the fi­nal time.

This has been a fan­tas­tic lo­cal­i­sa­tion of what is ar­guably TV’s best re­al­ity se­ries, so here’s to sea­son two, which is cur­rently cast­ing.
