No Amazing Race season is without its resident eye candy but with leggy beauties Pailin and Natalie, their team has one credential none of the previous good looking teams in race history ever had – being in a Miss Universe pageant and winning one!

25 year old Pailin Rungratanasunthorn was the first runner up in 2006 Miss Thailand Universe and represented her country as Miss Thailand Earth 2006 as well.

As for her good friend Natalie Glebova, the 26-year-old actually was a Miss Universe. Natalie took home the gleaming crown and title from the competition held in Bangkok, Thailand in 2005. The Russian Canadian beauty originally from Tuapse, Russia represented Canada in her winning event and is the second Canadian to claim the title.

It is no wonder that beauty pageants are part of their blood, having met in the 2006 Miss Thailand Universe pageant and becoming fast friends after that. Pailin was also one of Natalie's bridesmaids when she married Thailand's highest ranked tennis player, Paradorn Srichaphan, in November 2007.

But beauty is not the only thing that links the Thailand team together. Both have acute business sense as they are running their own business. Pailin's company makes toys, t-shirts and gifts for sale online, while Natalie's company sells beauty products across Thailand.

Describing herself, Pailin notes of her decision to participate in The Amazing Race, "I am really competitive and I want to do something where I can put my energy in it."

Agreeing, Natalie adds, "We're both very competitive and cannot stand to lose. We love to travel, love to do adrenaline like things, love to experience new cultures and learn."

And with both their credentials, travelling has become second nature to them. Pailin has travelled to Japan, China, South Africa, and Egypt while Natalie, other than gracing beauty pageants around the world, has attended the G8 Summit in New York, and as a HIV/AIDS awareness advocate, has travelled extensively to India and Africa.

Having spent their formative years in the beauty circuit, the damsels know a bit about what it takes to stay ahead. And having seen the show on television, the duo is also gunning to experience the thrills and tumbles that only the race can deliver. Exclaims Natalie, "We love to try new things. Give us bungee jumping, parachuting, paragliding and parasailing any day!"

She adds, "We are competitive, we're in shape and we're going to kick ass."

The girls have started preparing for the trek around the world based on what the previous Amazing Race Asia seasons were like. Surprisingly, their strategy for winning is to be the underdog and "fly under the radar". "Let's hope that no one will take us too seriously so we won't be recognized as a threat until it's too late!"

This is Natalie hosting a travel program on her new home, Thailand. She is gorgeous, there's no doubt about it, but I do wish the show would not have gone with so many mactors.

TARAsiaFan and jonnal, thanks for the really interesting stories on Natalie Glebova. However, she is about as qualified to represent Thailand as Andy and Laura were in ARA1. One more of Michael McKay's giving us a true "Asian" cast in the Amazing Race Asia.

Hmm no problem. Seems like they want to prove that they are not just the stereotyped dumb beauty queens. Well, here's hoping they don't try too hard and just play their normal game because most amazing fans already know that.

They'll be very attractive and sexual during this race, but since I'm not giving them the TARAsia Fan Stamp of Approval as of yet, I give them two episodes, no more.

Dare I say it Pailin is more beautiful than Natalie...Her eyes and height scares me! :lol:

They may look fearless and are strong women but we shall see their real characters soon.

The comparison that comes to my mind is with Dustin/Kandace, who as winners of Miss California and Miss New York both had constituencies of more than 30 million people. Pailin and Natalie match them in beauty and charm, but seem to fall woefully short in intelligence and endurance. If they had those qualities in abundance we should be hearing about that and we aren't. What a pity!

In theory, that constituency for Miss Universe could be as large as 6.5 billion people. However, in reality the constituency for a crowned three years ago Miss Universe is smaller than that of Miss California and Miss New York.

I do agree however, TARA is also about being street smart. Hopfully Pailin and Nat can last through most of the season without being eliminated.
