November 22 – TARA 2 or the Amazing Race Asia 2 started its second season and Malaysia really rocked the opening episode when the Chong sisters; Pamela and Vanessa showed everyone what they are really made off by beating two very competitive guys teams to finish first. It was 3 way race between the sisters against Filipinos Rovilson Fernandez and Marc Nelson and Singaporeans Colin Low and Adrian Yap. All the other teams were clearly no match for the top 3 teams. Lady luck was smiling on the other Malaysian duo; Ann Tan and Diane Douglas who finished 3rd when the taxi for Colin and Andrian got lost.
The bitch of the first episode definitely has to go to Terri Reed of the Philippines, who was screaming incessantly at her poor husband all the way. If she win the bitch award then the pig award has to go to Edwin Lo from Hong Kong was equally irritatingly vocal. I pity his pretty partner Monica Lo.
It was a fabulous start. Definitely better than last year’s.
The way Pamela and Vanessa ate their balut was awesome. I felt the ultimate compliment was when Marc said :- “these girls are inhuman”.
Pamela and Vanessa, that was a really great performance.
Malaysia loves you.
