Two-Minute Trailer For Expedition Impossible

Posted on the 20 May 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
A few days back I posted a teaser video for an upcoming television show called Expedition Impossible, that will begin airing here in the U.S. on ABC in June. The show is produced by Mark Burnett and looks to combine elements of adventure racing with a healthy mix of puzzle solving and challenges a la The Amazing Race. Now, we have a full two-minute trailer for the show, that offers up a bit more insight into what we can expect when it begins airing on June 23rd.
The show will pit 13 teams of three against one another in a competition that looks to cover a sizable distance through the country of Morocco. In the trailer, we see plenty of trekking, climbing, and paddling, and it looks like the competitors will have to deal with one of the banes of adventure racing – animals! Camels are notoriously stubborn, and I know plenty of adventure racers that groan when ever they, or just about any other animal, is added to a race. The ones in this trailer just look plain mean and nasty.
Also of note is the fact that mountaineer Erik Weihenmayer is one of the competitors in the race. You may recall that Erik made headlines all over the world when he became the first blind person to summit Everest a few years back. He has gone on to climb plenty of other mountains, and do all kinds of other amazing things, so I expect he'll do quite well here and probably surprise a lot of people who are unaware of his abilities.
So, what do you think? Is this going to be a fun show to watch?
