All About The Amazing Race Asia
(the bulk of this post was previously posted in my personal LJ)
So last week was the pre-show, showcasing this season's racers. (This here be the official page on the teams) Reputedly, it's the first of its kind in TAR history, and I've not yet decided if this a good or a bad thing. Still, having an entire hour dedicated to introducing the racers does give more depth to them beyond the usual soundbites that would be allotted to them once the Race begins.
Overall: Less full-on Westerners than last year's but otoh a majority of the Asian racers are mixed to begin with, or are married to Westerners. It's basically Expat Hour lah, even if it's honorary. :P Or am I the only who noticed this??
( A further breakdown of the teamsCollapse )
I can't wait! OTOH, apparently there will be 'more drama' this year, which doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. And heh, they were showing all these audition videos of ppl who didn't make the cut. Very funny, very inventive, but man, how embarrassing. ^^;
