Amazing Race Asia 2 Has Started

I have just watched the premiere of The Amazing Race Asia 2 on AXN Asia just now. It is the second season of The Amazing Race Asia series, one of my favourite shows, after its first season last year. This season, the race started in Singapore, specifically near the Raffles Landing Site where I and my kids just visited last week, and their first destination was the Merlion statue at Mount Faber. Believe me, I didn't know that there's another Merlion statue in Mount Faber, until I watched the show. I thought Merlion statues in Singapore can only be found in Merlion Park and Sentosa. :)

Similar to last season, there are ten teams competing for one hunder thousand dollar. There is one contestant from Singapore, Adrian, who is hearing-impaired, making him the first hearing-impaired contestant in the Amazing Race history. There's one team representing Indonesia, actress Kinaryosih and her partner Brett, and they can reach the pit stop at the fourth place in the first leg of the race. Not bad. :)

So, from next week onwards, I will have to mark this important time of the week: Thursday at 9pm (Singapore time), for me to watch The Amazing Race Asia 2. Oh, and don't forget also that every Wednesday at 11pm (Singapore time), Channel 5 is also showing the latest season of the Amazing Race.

Hi Everyone!

It was great tuning into the most favourite reality show of all time! Having already gained an in-depth info on the racers from the introductory episode, it was easy to pick out the names and nationalities of the participating teams (although I was a little miffed by the lack of any teams from India)

The filipino (sexy) hunks are my favourite although the fiesty Pam and Van left them eating their dust at the pitstop.

The initial episodes are always a frenzied rush and you can barely keep track of who’s doing what. The gym buddies (Adrien & Collin) from Singapore gave a creditable performance but for theie inept cab dirver sqandering their hard won lead time depriving them of their top-3 finish.

The dancing moms remind me of the bowling moms from TAR5. Hope they go as far.

Somebody please shut terri’s mouth! my sympathies for Henry, it can’t be easy being married to the awful termagant (I did see poor henry gnashing his teeth once when he obviously forgot that he was on camera. No wonder his smiles seem strained.

The Japanese team. Daichi & Sawaka deserve the award for the most well behaved team. There is something about this brother Sister duo that just appeals to you. Daichi is cute!

Rovilson just cracks me up with his asides, love his hairstyle. Marc is the darling of this season. I am rooting for this team!
