Although you are correct, TARAsia Fan, the message from Rabbit is right on. Who wants to do torrents if you can just play a youtube video? The ability of Asians to upload ARA3 episodes this season is open to question, but we should indeed pray that it happens.

The thing in Racers Revealed that has stuck with me is how many racers have a nationality other than the country they are representing even though the tag line for the group of teams is "Asia's Own." I remember that Natalie is Canadian(not part of Asia last I knew), that Tisha is Canadian, that Geoff is I believe from New Zealand, and that the guys representing Hong Kong Vince and Sam also have a different nationality. When Michael McKay ever gets his casting straightened out without the mactors, I think this problem will disappear.

Actually I think its a bit small though, should have chosen a bigger size. Its some random movie maker from the internet, there are so many so you hope its the right one. Its called Dvd-to-Avi by FlexiImage INC. Its pretty good considering its free but I can see some faulty lines in some parts. Maybe theres even better ones I hope.

Mrs. Shrek, what can I say except look at Racers Revealed part 2(see link above) starting around minute 10? The word "New Zealander" is very prominent on Geoff's information display.

Also, I can't tell which nationality Geoff is by speech patterns, which is something I am rather good at. I may not live in Australia, but my daughter does, and I may not live in New Zealand, but my sister has been there for over 25 years and my brother-in-law is native Kiwi.

jonnal, you bring an interesting viewpoint to the analysis of race winners. Have you heard the statement by Bertram van Munster, who certainly has a vested interest in knowing the plus and minuses of the racers, that he has never in the history of the Amazing Race picked a winner at the beginning? The apparent and claimed qualities of each team are just that. It is intangibles that tend to be the factors that determine the winners and the luck factor is very important given the equal start that the final 3 typically have in the final leg.

For example, you pick William and Issac as the race winners. I think that team is deliberative and plodding and will not make the Final 3. Also, you are enchanted with Geoff and Tisha. I see huge conflicts between them that should cost them a spot in the Final 3. These assessments are based solely on what I have learned from official TARA3 information, not from anything I may have learned previously on the ARA3 thread. We have to wait and observe the race behavior of teams before we can make more successful guesses of order finish.

Yup I've definitely heard of it. Of course I only previewed its based on RR. Nothing else.

Sure William and Issac might seem conservative and boring at first sight but I believe they could surprise us? Just like what the casting director said. I'm not enchanted with Geoff and Tisha, I just put the rolling eyes thing because that could give that they might make far but at the same time see Geoff losing his temper alot? Yup they seem they might have conflicts but it just seems Tisha might be able to handle that.  If they handle their emotions, especially Geoff, they will make far.
