Philippine Team Wins Amazing Race Asia 4
A team from the Philippines finished first on Amazing Race Asia!
Here’s what the final three teams have to go through in the final leg of the race (courtesy of Wikipedia):
In the last leg’s Detour, teams must choose between Stay Up and Add Up. In Stay Up, teams must successfully ride a wave for an accumulated time of two minutes at the Wave House in Sentosa Island. In Add Up, teams must head to the Gmax Reverse Bungee and add up three numbers called out by the host and get the sum correctly to receive their next clue. In this leg’s Roadblock, one team member must make a tightrope walk from tower 1 to tower 2 of the Marina Bay Sands Resort to get their clue. They must then make their way back to tower 1 to finish the task.
* At the Cavenagh Bridge, teams must locate the lion dancers to receive their next clue.
* At the Red House Seafood Restaurant, teams must extract 1 kilogram of chili crab to receive their next clue.
* Teams must search one of four Caltex stations and find a vintage car. If the vintage car is no longer in the Caltex Station, the team must proceed to a different Caltex station.
* At the St. James Power Station, teams have two minutes to unlock their handcuffs and perform an escape illusion to receive their next clue.
* At the Marina Bay Sands Resort, teams must ride a marked elevator to the Sky Park Swimming Pool where teams will be tested with their memory on the race. Once they’ve retrieved seven rings, they can receive their next clue.
Pals Richard Hardin, a 34-year-old basketball player and Richard Herrera, a 31-year-old model, finished the race first and became the first Philippine team to do so. Previous PHL teams Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez finished third in season 2 while Geoff Rodriguez and Tisha Silang almost won in season 3 when they finished second.
The Richards bested the rebel pals team from Singapore (2nd) and the father and daughter team from Indonesia (3rd). They won US$100,000.00 for winning the 4th season of Amazing Race Asia.
Party girls Jess & Lani, the other Philippine team this season, finished fourth.
