Banijay today announces Race For The Rings, an original new adventure reality show co-produced by EndemolShine Nederland, part of Banijay Benelux and Beau van Erven Dorens’ production company, Kale Jackhals Productions. The show has been commissioned by RTL 4.
Race For The Rings puts engaged couples to the test as they cross the desert in Jordan, competing for the honeymoon of their dreams. Throughout the series they will take part in challenges which range from physical, mental and even hilariously comical. However, beautiful as the country is, the conditions are harsh. Which couple will thrive as strategies develop, alliances form and communication is tested? Only one loved-up pair will win the game and a well-deserved honeymoon. Presented by Beau van Erven Dorens (Deal or No Deal),this format is action-packed, high-energy, and full of reality moments.
Rob van der Vleugel, producer, Endemol Shine Nederland comments: “Filming Race For The Rings in Jordan was no mean feat, but it was an incredible experience and I am proud of the final version and team of creatives I worked alongside. This new adventure format is utterly engaging with every challenge revealing a new side to the couples to leave audiences gripped.”
