As the five pairs back in October travelled from Odense to Singapore, they were only equipped with a map of the world and a modest amount of cash consisting of 21.718 Danish kroner.
tonight is the last time, we follow the three remaining pairs, when the finals will be taking place in the TV2 programme 'First to the end of the world'.
in addition to switch a 12 hour long flight with more than 12,000 kilometres of adventure on land and sea, there were more challenges and surprises that awaited the five couples on their life journey.
The long journey lasted 48 days, which represent a total of eight sections. Therefore, it is not all, the viewers were allowed to watch on tv. It promises some of the participants reveals to Ekstra Bladet.

Each pair had associated with their own camera crew, which consisted of a minimum a photographer and organise.
It also meant that there would always be space for one or more, when the participants had to hitchhike their way to the next destination, and in addition, the participants spend the night with a camera crew.
- WE ran into that often was not the tickets to the camera crew and had to acknowledge that we could not get away. So we had to wait for the next departure, says Josefine Chappell.

When you only have 21.718 Danish kroner to do well with to get to Singapore from Odense, it's all about saving where you can.
Why had the participants give priority to travel far on the night, rather than a good beauty sleep.
- in Order to come as soon as in a cheap way, we traveled in buses on the night, so we could sit up to sleep. So we avoided hotels, says Claus Bentsen.
in Addition, had the participants not order new shuttle service between the hours of. 21 in the evening and back to kl. 5 in the morning. Therefore, it was important to find the right departure.

to come in contact with others who do not understand the same language, can often be a bit of a mystery. It was also a challenge for the participants to communicate with locals who do not understand English.
- Many could not understand English. It thought we all almost could. We communicated through the drawings. We drew trains and pointed at the map. It seems obvious, but you had to really be creative. Many shook their heads and just wanted to lend us their phones, says Josefine Chappell.

It was not, however, an opportunity for the participants to borrow phones when it from the production side was decided that they did not even had to hold a telephone.
- We had a small pegebog of hotels, trains and food and so on, so we could point at the drawings and make us just a little understandable, says Claus Bentsen.

There are probably many who are wondering why the participants basically are wearing the same clothing. But there is a good explanation.
An unpredictable journey of 48 days to the end of the world meant that participants only had to pack the most necessary, and for all kinds of weather.
- We had very little clothing with. When we were finally on the hotels, and washed clothing in the bath. We had to take advantage of the opportunities there were. Those days, we didn't get washed the clothes, we had to prioritize what smelled at least, says Claus Bentsen.
There were also many days where the participants had to go without a bath.
- There was a period of ten days, where we could not go in the bath. It was to swallow it in and hope for a bath the next day, says Josefine Chappell.
Marco was happy for dry shampoo. You could from time to time wash in håndsprit, but otherwise it was just typical something smalls, says Claus Bentsen.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Friends with the enemy Behind the cameras, the participants were good friends with each other. Private
At the beginning of the competition, we met five couples, who preferably would not exchange a word with each other, but the further they got in the competition, the closer they came to each other.
Each time the participants reached a checkpoint, they had to wait a minimum of 24 hours before they had to travel on. It also resulted in that the participants were friends with each other crisscrossing.
- To get a close relationship to the other meddrejsende. It was not only the competition. We had it really well and had a close relationship. We talked not about the journey itself, but we could get a little peace in the head. It is only very few people who have experienced the same thing. It was nice to share it with some, says Claus Bentsen.
- There was much we could share and spar with each other, but we also tried to keep a little again. But it was difficult to distinguish between these two things, says Josefine Chappell.
