Hey guys! Just saw a Natasha/Hussein commercial here in the Philippines. Makes me anxious about them possibly becoming the winners. Look at how Sony (i think?) released a commercial with Sam & Vince in it during their season, and guess what? They emerged winners.  :'( NOOOOOO!  (:;)

I saw the commercial too. But the product they are endorsing isn't a TARA sponsor. I think it's a local commercial in Indonesia (based on what I remember, the commercial is about a telecom product like Smart or Globe). It's just maybe a local sponsor in Indonesia like what we have here in the Philippines. Just my thoughts.

it's sony ericsson in partnership with Axiata i think which are sponsors of TARA. i dont think they win... i think they are finalist. the winner gets the commercial for the major sponsor. probably the Sony LED Bravia TV or even a Sony 3d TV.

And yeah, it was like local commercial in Indonesia... Some kind like telcom product. I never thought it would be aired too in Philipines  :lol:

Here's the commercial, someone uploaded it to Youtube :)

I'm speculating that the race visit South Korea , I just open the official TARA 4 website and seeing AXN Travelpicks , it's displaying New Zealand , Indonesia , and South Korea , as we know they visit Indonesia & New Zealand , means maybe that visit South Korea . As we know leg 8 was in Indonesia , and leg 9 was speculated for Japan , maybe leg 10 was in South Korea ?

I heard that the Malaysians are in a Sony commercial in Malaysia.  But they were eliminated so I guess a team coming out in a commercial of an official sponsor of TARA does not mean they're the winners.

Maybe in future this will just indicate that a team will go far in the race.

I'd just saw this info from wikipedia and someone by the name of TARA Insider, made a "spoiler" on the upcoming few legs of TARA 4: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_Asia_4#Future_Legs_.28From_a_TARA_Insider.29

Is that a speculation only or is that real and accurate? :duno:

Well, I think it is quite apparent that it is not accurate, nor is it believable, as teams from the US version were seen running in LAX (hence their finale is in Mainland US).

It is wrong. Based from the preview of ep 10, teams went to South Korea, not Japan (I know how to differentiate Japanese and Korean).
Or maybe I was wrong, and they went to North Korea. Hail Kim Il-Sung!

*Two Philippine teams (TARA) returned victoriously to their home turf after bagging the 1st (Jess & Lani) and 2nd (Richard & Richard) places, respectively. Hussein and Natasha of Indonesia arrived third. Nat and Kat (TAR) won first place, followed by Brook & Claire and Chad & Stephanie for the second and third places, respectively.

I'm sorry to say this but i'm 99.9% sure a filipino did that.

It has been kind of frustrating to see the filipino fans dominating every single related TARA updates and running down the other teams. Really frustrating, if you ask me. :res:

Yeah Joab, that's what i thought too  :lol:  :lol:

but after I saw "TARA Insider" in wikipedia.... Suddenly I think that 'wiki-spoiler' could be right.... I have no idea whether it's valid or not....  :duno:

My speculation is that they'll end in a different country (after spending 2 full episodes in Malaysia, and about a third of the third episode in KL). Although I could be wrong as they may still follow tradition.

I was wondering though, about the preview, as some described it, there was a task shown with M/C shooting an arrow at a photo of J/L. I wonder what this is for?

I agree that it could be a filipino who wrote that.

But you're other comment.. I don't know if I could say it rude or not, but I am hurt...

My dad is currently working in The Philippines and i visit the country almost every year and I LOVE the country. Why would i want to speak against them. Filipinos are one of the friendliest bunch of people i've ever met.

But i'm stating my opinion, or rather, i made my opinion based on truths which i've seen. If you're a fan of The Amazing Race Asia facebook page, this is what you'll normally see -



I am definitely happy that TARA is reaching out to SO MANY filipino friends. But because of the vast outreach, most of the comments are also from them. And hence when you read a distasteful comment about any other team except their own home country team, most of the time it will come from a filipino. Hence that was why i made that comment.

However, i rest my case here. I apologize if it offended anyone.

Maybe next time I suggest you use "SOME" or "MANY Filipino fans" instead of filipino fans.


But I am not offended by what you posted because I know you don't mean "ALL Filipinos" when you said that.

Anyway back to topic, I didn't read the wiki post because I really like to be surprised when I watch the episodes just like what happened last time when the Richs made it after a mistake.

And to other Filipinos viewing this post, please let us respect other nationalities. We can and we may post bad "adjectives" to other teams not from the Philippines but let us be sensitive enough to make them within the context of the race and not on personal and racial inclinations.

I myself said I hate the Malaysian TEam's sense of humor regarding Dimple and Sunaina (in New Zealand) and I love the fact that they were eliminated.

:tup: It is good you understand. I dislike Ethan and Khairie's sense of humour too. Just that when you read those posts on facebook and make a comment, especially if it's against a Philippines team, you will have 954394583958 people breathing down your neck after that. O_O

Not me though, but all the poor people who didn't know what they will get for disregarding the filipino teams. -_-

Okay though, back to topic!! :lol:
