The Amazing Race Asia 2: Introducing the Teams

November 23, 2007

It’s a whole new season of the Amazing Race Asia! (TARA)

This time there’ll be 10 teams competing: (drumroll)

1. Adrian & Collin – Gymbuddies – Singapore

First ‘special’ team ever, Adrian has hearing loss and communicates with Collin through sign language. They may go far as they don’t have to shout at each other.

2. Edwin & Monica – couple – Hong Kong

She’s an actress/model. He’s a… event organizer. Bitchiest team in this season. ‘Nuff said.

3. Henry & Trinidad – Couple – Phillippines

An ex-military guy + a hardshell housewife = lots of shouting. Loving as well.

4. Sawaka & Daichi – Siblings – Japan

First Japanese team ever in TARA. Very loving and caring with each other. But can they get first?

5. Paula & Natasha BFFs – Thailand

Their mothers knew each other at labour and poof there’re lifelong friends. Pretty gals! Even their names rhyme.

6. Sophia & Aurelia – Roommates – Hong Kong

Aurelia’s French. Sophia’s local. Just normal roommates who have nothing in common. Another team with names that rhyme.

7. Brett & Kinar – Couple – Indonesia

An actress and a physiotherapist. Nice combination! Can see them go far.

8. Ann & Diane – Mums & Friends – Malaysia

The team who dubbed themselves as the ‘dancing moms’ but like to call themselves the ”Desperate Housewives”. Specialty: Keeping calm because of yoga. Oldest team in the race. BTW, name rhymes.

9. Marc & Rovilson – BFFs – Phillippines

Hunkiest and funniest team in the race. Very competitive and my prediction: will get to finals. Both TV hosts. One’s American, the other Aussie.

10. Pamela & Vanessa – Sisters – Malaysia

Pam and Van for short. Sisters to popular singer, Vince Chong. They can prove that they have beauty and brawns. Most competitive girl team. Will be in finals.

I’m so ever patriotic (XD) so I’m definitely rooting for Pam and Van. I’ll be cheering for Ann and Diane too. Hope one of them be the second all-girl team to win TARA! (Last year Malaysians Zabrina & Joe Jer bought home the prize)

I’m sure Marc & Rovilson would push away everything that comes in their paths. Adrian & Collin will be the underdog because of their advantage/disadvantage.

The others… Ummm okay.

Hope to see lots of drama this season! 🙂

Go Pam and Van!
