What Is “Rush” About?
“RUSH” is not your ordinary travel show. The brand-new series follows 12 everyday Aussies as they embark on an extraordinary journey of a lifetime. Imagine being dropped into the heart of vibrant cultural festivals, massive events, and exotic destinations. Well, that pretty much sums this show up.
But here’s the twist — the contestants are stripped of their senses. Contestants will be dropped into locations wearing blacked out goggles, pushing them to rely on their instincts and embrace the local culture in unconventional ways. From heart-pounding missions to mind-blowing experiences, “RUSH” aims to immerse participants and viewers in an authentic and life-changing adventure.

Where Is “Rush” Located?
These 12 contestants will travel in teams, through nine incredible countries, land in the middle of the action with no idea where they are, and work together to find their way to the finish line. The countries include Brazil, Turkey, Jordan, India, Thailand, Ireland, France, Kenya and South Africa.
What Are the Rules of “Rush”?
The contestants will be dropped in the middle of a mysterious country, known as “Drop Zones”. Therefore, participants will be transported to various bustling and thrilling festivals or locations across the globe. Equipped with noise-cancelling headphones and blackout goggles, they will be immersed in an atmosphere of chaos and excitement.
Then, each team will receive a message on their watches from the host, David, containing a mysterious clue indicating his whereabouts.
Then, the teams will compete in a race to find David. Upon reaching him, David will provide them with information about the country they are in and hand them a dossier that contains all the necessary details to find the Escape Zone. However, they will only have their clothing and some local currency. The team that arrives last at the Escape Zone will be required to eliminate one of their members from the competition.
Before leaving the Escape Zone, teams must complete missions.
