The Trail of Xapatan

By | July 22, 2014

So you might remember a little while ago we did a feature on one of Jacques Antoine’s less popular shows La Piste de Xapatan where a group of guys goes round the Mexican jungle doing tasks and avoiding Mexicans whilst a female contestant searches for statues in a cave.

Well someone’s stuck a few episodes up on Youtube.


I’m still of the belief that this is quite a dull show with some quite nice picturesque elements. The final five minutes is two people climbing lots of stairs, although the zipline is quite good.

    Hi Paul,

    Could I ask where you get your data from? Do you pay? If so/not which site do you access this from. Would be great to know. If you don’t want to say publicly, you could drop me an email (

    Many Thanks in advance.

      Lovely to see again, but it works in exactly the opposite way to what I had remembered. If there’s ever a format that punishes you for doing well…

        Yes, it would seem a strange format point these days to destroy your own wall if you get a question right, although I note you could pass.

        In association with Chatsworth TV no less.
