Celebrity Race Across The World

You should watch anyway! It was still a great episode.

    1. Alex and Noel
    2. Harry and Emma (literally a couple of minutes behind, all four got to the last destination at the same time)
    3. Mel and Helene (who knows how much later :eyes:)

Thanks, OK'll i'll watch, its just quite down on my list of catch ups!
 
I’m confused where Mel and Helenes bus came from though as he was pretty adamant there wasn’t one that day.

Do we think production paid for a tour bus to turn up and filled it with loads of extras and a fun for Europe tour guide?
Just caught up, and I feel this happened twice in the episode. At the beginning while they were still in Berlin, they suddenly just said "oh here's a bus to Tallinn" (!?) which we subsequently saw very little of. Just their little map rolling through all the countries causally rolling through five countries but not much footage of any of it?!

Then same again, a random town in Finland just HAPPENS to have a bus to Tromsø turn up out of nowhere?? It was all a bit CONVENIENT.

I totally agree, however I did look up the bus and it does exist with daily service (10.5hr trip) from that small finish town!


How cynical are we 🤭
 
The way Mel was like "let's just hang around on the off chance the bus turns up" did make me think that production gave them a tip off though :D

Overall it was enjoyable though there were too many pre-interview segments throughout the series and a bit of a lack of drama. Still enjoyable, but a little dull. I really wasn't gunning for the winners, I found everyone else more enjoyable, though they had their moments.
 
I have also been doing some research. The bus exists but it leaves earlier in the day than they can possibly have got there. You can get the sleeper train from Helsinki to Oulu and then another train to Rovaniemi in time to catch that bus the same day, if you know exactly where you are going and what you need to do ahead of time, but they worked in Oulu so can’t have done that. I suspect that they might have been more than 24 hours behind the other two teams and the producers made the other two wait around to meet them.

You aren't cynical the producers are in their ear pieces a lot of the way
 
I mean production will at the very least be either in constant contact with the camera crew or possible on the ground the contestants, thats a given.
