new series race Across the World follows five teams given strict rules as they travel across East Asia for a chance to win the ultimate life-changing prize.

Teams race against time from Japan to Lombok, covering 15,000 kilometers across multiple countries.

Participants will be asked to leave behind their smartphones, internet access and bank cards in the hope of winning a £20,000 prize.

When the beginning of the latest episode aired, many viewers noticed that the recaps and previews that are usually shown at the beginning were omitted.

One TV critic wrote on X (Twitter): “Interesting that there are no previews or recaps for #RaceAcrossTheWorld.

“Again, with so many people watching this show on streaming or catch-up, many will devour the EP and don’t need it anyway.”

Replying to the tweet, another viewer said:

“It suddenly becomes important, unless it’s to bring something to the forefront that you might have forgotten.

“It’s less of a problem for a short series with a simple premise.”

A fan of the third show agreed, saying he was happy that “they got off to a quick start.”

Another said that he “can’t stand recaps and previews” and usually skips them completely if they are included in an episode.

After the release of the latest episode, the lack of recaps and previews wasn’t the only topic of discussion.

Many viewers of BBC’s Race Across the World were left stunned, believing they had misheard the name of a particular place in South Korea.

Best friends Alfie and Owen raced down the east coast of South Korea to reach the second checkpoint, Sokcho.

To kill time for some sightseeing, the best friends stopped in Samcheok, home to the infamous Penis Park.

During a visit to the famous Kaixintang Park, they jokingly remarked that the penis statue was clearly bringing in tourists “from far and wide.”

Alfie said as he climbed and sat on the model’s genitals. “I don’t know how to describe this penis park other than to say there are a lot of penises.”

To which Owen replied, “What a sight this is,” and the pair wished them luck in the iconic park.

As the scene aired, Race Across the World fans burst into tears with laughter as they heard about this unique park.

One viewer wrote: “Alfie and Owen are making memories in a special park in Korea #topchoice.”

Another person commented: “The Penis Park part of #RaceAcrossTheWorld is already one of the funniest parts on TV this year. Easily.”

“I think the line ‘Give me two tickets to Penis Park’ should go down in TV legend,” chimed in a third.

Meanwhile, others asked: what is happening? ! ”

There was a legend that after urinating in the sea, a fisherman brought back the hope of catching a fish back to his village, so villagers carved phallic-shaped sculptures to keep themselves “good luck.”

Race Across The World airs every Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
