Rush on Channel 9

Tonight | Rush on Channel 9 and 9Now

Rush on Channel 9 – Team Navy, Team Gold and Team Scarlet are seeing green as they’re dropped into the chaos that is St Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin Ireland.

Without money, they must first find two classic Irish items: a live Shamrock, and a pint of Guinness – before they can track down David Genat “DG”.

Then, teams must navigate the Irish countryside to County Cork and pucker up to kiss the famous Blarney Stone before heading to the Escape Zone.

But getting all the way to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher will be less about how much money they’ve got and more about who can blag a free lift the quickest.

Hopefully, the luck of the Irish is on their side.

RUSH – MONDAY, JULY 17, AT 7.30PM ON CHANNEL 9 AND 9NOW

About the Show

It’s nearly time to immerse yourself in RUSH, the big new global adventure program coming to Channel 9 and 9Now on Sunday, July 2, at 7.00pm.

Three teams of Aussies are put to the test in this thrilling race around the world. In nine different countries, Brazil, Turkey, Jordan, India, Thailand, Ireland, France, Kenya and South Africa, the teams have one mission: be the first to get out and move on to the next destination. 

Each team will be dropped into the middle of some of the most pulsating cultural festivals, huge events and exotic locations on Earth, including Carnival in Rio, St Patrick’s Day in Dublin, the colourful Holi festival in India and the throbbing techno moshpit of Tomorrowland in France.

The intrepid travellers arrive at each new drop point deprived of sight and sound.

Once their noise-cancelling headphones and blackout goggles are removed their first task is to find host, David Genat, waiting for them with mission instructions.

In each location, Genat will give them a series of tasks which they must complete, immersing themselves in the chaos of the local culture before locating an extraction point amid the mayhem and rushing to the Escape Zone. They might have to organise and win a soccer match with the locals in Rio, find and photograph the Stone of Sacrifice in Petra in Jordan, or bungee jump from the world’s highest bridge, Bloukrans Gorge in South Africa. 

However, the last team to arrive at each Escape Zone in every country will need to eliminate one traveller from their team. 

As the numbers reduce and the teams dwindle to become individuals, one winner will emerge and win a life-changing prize of $100,000 and two first-class, around-the-world airline tickets.

Meet the three teams up for this fish-out-of-water global challenge:
