Five teams of two are competing to be the first to make it to Ushuaia, Argentina – the world’s southernmost city - from the Mexican capital, Mexico City.
Sounds fairly simple, right? You could just fly there. Well, contestants aren’t allowed to fly. Or use a credit card. They’re not even allowed on the internet. Without their smartphones and just the cash equivalent of a one-way plane ticket, they’re forced to figure out how to navigate transport, borders, accommodation and the stress of travelling as a two to reach their destination.
You might say that the joy of the journey is real goal – after all, when else will these 10 travellers embark on such a unique adventure? But the winning pair takes home a cash prize – and of course, bragging rights – so there’s a lot at stake.
