TV Tube: The Amazing Race Asia 4, Rush Ahead

The fourth season of the most awaited and the biggest race in Asia has finally started, The Amazing Race Asia 4. I been a huge follower of this show because not only that I get to discover great places across the continent, I also get to cheer my countrymen who were competing for the grand prize.

There were two Philippine teams who were competing in this season, Richard Hardin and Richard Herrera, basketball teammates playing in the Team Pilipinas who compete in the FIBA basketball tournament and print and media models Jess and Lani who have appeared in advertisements and commercials in the Philippines. I put my bet on
Richard and Richard being a strong and competitive team but I’m also not discounting
Jess and Lani since they seemed vicious in achieving their goal. Oh well, good luck to booth and make us proud! We have not won yet so far and the farthest yet was last year where we end up second.

Like the previous seasons, the show features a large number of media personalities in their respective countries.

Wendy was a finalist in Miss Hong Kong 2006, teamed up with his boyfriend Alan who is also a celebrity.

Nadine was Miss Indonesia Earth 2009 teamed up with a long time friend Yani.
Natasha was Miss South Jakarta 2007 teamed up with her father representing Indonesia.

Dimple is a Hindi soap actress who starred in the serial Aathvaan Vachan while her friend Sunaina is an Indian TV actress, who is currently starring in Dill Mill Gayye, as well as a movie actress who starred in Hindi movie Kyun! Ho Gaya Na....

Manas finished runner-up as a contestant on the Indian reality-dating show Rakhi Ka Swayamwar, similar in format to The Bachelorette of the American series teamed up with his cousin Sahil becoming the second team that represent India.

Claire is the daughter of famous Mandopop singer William Scorpion while Michelle was a reality TV contestant on the Singaporean series S Factor. They are the youngest team to compete in the Amazing Race Asia history.

Non celebrity team contenders includes Ivan, who is from Hungary, races with his Malaysian wife Hilda and friend Ethan and Khairie representing Malaysia. There seemed to be a shortage of celebrities in Malaysia!

Leg 1 was already runned-down with Malaysian team taking the first pit stop, not surprising since it’s their bailiwick, giving them a huge advantage. The production team should have thought of other location to start the show, maybe a non competing country to make it fair to everyone!

Anyways, this is going to be fun and exciting! c”, The show gives me a good reason to watch TV again. Watch this space for updates! GO TEAM PHILIPPINES!
