I've been stuck to the goggle box watching the Amazing Race Asia 2.
The Amazing Race series has always captured my attention amongst the reality competition shows. So far, 2 teams are leading the pack; the Singapore Team of Collin and Adrian, and the Philippines Team of Mark and Rovilson.
Today's episode was interesting as Collin & Adrian took an earlier train out of Prague, and via transit, reached Budapest almost 2 hours ahead of the pack. Singapore brains and brawn doing good work there.
Below are my thoughts on the teams still in the race.
Singapore Team ; methodical, efficient, tad boring.
Philippine Team; makes being ahead at almost every leg look like a breeze, have the most fun doing it too.
Thai Team; eye candy, always cheerful, always positive.
Malaysian Mum Team; zzzz.....
Malaysian Sisters Team; emo, pessimistic, melodramatic, irritating to hear them bicker over the minutest set back( like not being able to drive a stick shift). I really hope they get eliminated soon.
Team Singapore finally came in 1st in today's episode with some good research on the best route to their first clue box. The Philippines team, though falling at one point to 4th, made up good time to get 2nd.
The Thai Team was last, but as it was a non-elimination round, are still in the race. They'd have to forge some alliances, probably with Mark and Rovilson of the Philippines team, in order to get a 30 min lead over the next time that comes after them in the next pit stop.
All in all, good TV to watch on a Thursday night.
