PEKIN EXPRESS 2022. Belgian brothers Lucas and Nicolas are the winners of Beijing Express. They won €100,000 in the final broadcast on M6 on Thursday April 14, 2022.
00:00 – Will there be a 16th season of Beijing Express?
END OF LIFE. Beijing Express will be back on M6 soon. In fact, a 2023 season is in the pipeline as the production is currently collecting applications from audiences at the site. https://www.casting-pekinexpress.fr/. An all-star season, for example with Inès Reg, Valérie Trierweiler and Yoann Riou, is also being filmed. At the moment, we don’t know the date of Beijing Express season 16. If you believe the usual M6 calendar, it should be broadcast in the first quarter of 2023, i.e. between the months of February and next April. However, no launch date has been announced yet.
Lucas and Nicolas were netizens’ favorites during this Beijing Express final. They therefore did not hide their joy when they realized that the Belgian brothers had won this 15th season: “I’m so happy for them, they deserve it so much, they’ve been at the top since the beginning of the competition!” She can we read on Twitter, while a viewer comments: “The most deserving team has won on a sporting and personal level!” on the Blue Bird social network.
4/14/22 – 11:40 p.m. – How will Lucas and Nicolas spend the 100,000 euros?
Lucas and Nicolas won 100,000 euros by winning the Beijing Express. After the final, the Belgian brothers revealed how they intend to spend the large sum of money. Lucas confided he wanted to give his fiancé a lavish wedding, while Nicolas hopes to spoil his wife and children.
Jérémy and Fanny arrived a few minutes after Lucas and Nicolas and found that they had arrived in second place. The couple congratulates the two winners on their arrival. Fanny tearfully regrets it in front of the M6 cameras: “I wanted to prove to everyone that we can be successful, but we didn’t make it”. Conversely, Jérémy believes that “they” were successful. We were lucky enough to experience the adventure from A to Z, from the first mission to the last.”
The suspense is over! Lucas and Nicolas are the winners of this 15th season of Beijing Express. Not only did they win the entire pot (€100,000) but they finished the final sprint just minutes ahead of Jérémy and Fanny and burst into tears upon seeing their victory.
Lucas and Nicolas are internet users’ favourites. That’s why the delay in the final sprint worries viewers on the social network Twitter: “I hope that there will be no change in the situation for the Belgians,” reads the blue bird’s page. “I don’t feel it for the brothers,” said a user. On the other hand, the brothers’ defeat is unthinkable: “If the Belgians don’t win, I don’t understand it, they fought so hard for more than a month, they deserved the win!” It all takes place on a 10-kilometer drive…
For their part, Lucas and Nicolas have a comfortable lead. However, they quickly lose their composure when they get into a car, unsure that their driver is willing to take them to their destination. The latter phoned her husband, who refuses to take strangers with him. The Belgian brothers are therefore dropped off at a less traveled location, causing them to lose their lead. They then have great difficulty finding a car that will take them to Stéphane Rotenberg. For their part, Jérémy and Fanny celebrate a spectacular comeback…
During the final sprint, the couples have to answer questions about their adventures over the past few weeks. During the premiere, Fanny, convinced they don’t know the answer, gives a random answer… But Jérémy wanted to give the right answer at the same time! The couple argues and above all loses three precious minutes… “I’m really angry, comments Jérémy, these three minutes, we shouldn’t have lost them”.
The final sprint has begun! Everything is happening now. If, as usual, the Belgian brothers only take a few minutes to leave, this is not the case for Jérémy and Fanny. No car stops to pick them up. Fanny collapses and explodes: “What’s the point of this shitty exit? stop pushing me! It pisses me off! Not a single car stops.”
Hard hit for Jérémy and Fanny. Lost in traffic, the two candidates have to change trains and ask a French woman for directions. Unfortunately, this is no longer of any use: your kitten is completely empty. So Lucas and Nicolas can win 100,000 euros if they finish first in the final sprint.
Unknowingly, Fanny and Jérémy took a lot of time to design the puzzle for the third intermediate sprint. They are stuck in traffic after being hitchhiked by a French woman.
While ahead of the third intermediate sprint, Beijing Express’ Lucas and Nicolas very quickly successfully solved the puzzle of the event. However, your driver will pull into a hotel parking lot. Enough to panic the contestants who have no idea how much of an advantage they have over their opponent! Do they lose their advance and thus their money?
In the Télé-Loisirs columns, Fanny and Jérémy complained about the way viewers view and criticize their journey in the game. Petra, we’re only portrayed as haters, bad players. People don’t understand that you can do these things in life. Petra, people don’t understand that this step was so important for me personally in relation to my grandfather, my family… Nicolas knew it, but it doesn’t matter. That’s why we’re allowed to have a bit of a bang during the hot interviews,” comments Fanny. Jérémy adds: “We’re human, but since we’re stuck with labels like ‘we’re the happy couple’ and ‘well the happy couple’, that has no right to be angry. For the viewers anyway.”
In the social networks, the preference for Lucas and Nicolas is clearly pronounced. The spectators of the Beijing Express particularly appreciate that the Belgian brothers accept their defeat and celebrate the victory of their opponents at the end of the second intermediate sprint. “The difference in mentality between the two couples, I’m ashamed to be French when I see that,” reads the social network. Another user calls out: “The brothers are modest”, “Even if they lose, they are better Belgians, sorry the bad couple”, it is also written.
4/14/22 – 10:15 p.m. – Jérémy and Fanny are first in the 2nd intermediate sprint, where are the points?
While Lucas has great difficulty piloting his drone without hitting any of the obstacles, Jérémy, who is used to the exercise, finds the test much easier. The dream couple finishes the event quickly, putting them one step ahead of their opponents. But not as much as they had hoped: at the end of this intermediate sprint, the Belgian brothers lost 2,050 euros. Her kitty is now priced at 83,010 euros, while Fanny and Jérémy’s reaches 16,990 euros.
