Beau Ryan is set to host 10’s newest season of The Amazing Race Australia and they have teased that the celebrities that are set to appear will have a date with backpacker accommodation, budget travel and gruelling challenges. The Amazing Race Australia: Celebrity Edition will premiere Wednesday, 4 October at 7:30 pm on 10 and 10 Play.
Ben and Jackie Gillies, George “King Of Bankstown” Mladenov, Rebecca Judd, Darren McMullen, Peter Rowsthorn and Harry Jowsey join Grant and Chezzi Denyer, Emma Watkins, Alli Simpson, Jana Pittman, Dane Simpson, and their nominated loved ones on a hot lap around the world.
Hosted by Beau Ryan and set against the backdrops of India, Malaysia, Cambodia and Borneo, the 11 celebrity racers and their loved ones will need to battle the harsh elements if they want to make it to the end and win money for their nominated charities.
Couple to watch Grand Denyer and Chezzi Denyer say the challenges of The Amazing Race will be more like a sweet vacation for them.
“Anything is a holiday… even if you are in the hottest of hot or coldest of cold locations around the world being chased by a bear. When you are parents of three young children it sounds like a dream come true.”
Jokes aside, Chezzi said that part of the experience she’s most looking forward to is being completely out of her comfort zone, “So that when the girls watch TV they see their mum kick butt. Be brave — that’s what we want to teach them!”
The pair have chosen Lifeline Central West as their charity, “We worked with them a number of years ago when drought overtook our area,” Chezzi said, adding, “We have recently had mice plagues on farms around where we live, we have had floods—there are a lot of villages and towns in our area that have been decimated and Lifeline have been out there on the ground helping out in lots of different ways.”
