I only gave opinion of the contestants in the begining just to direct you to the right type cast - when you read the info provided things like "dysfunctional couple" , "hillbillies" or "psychotic lawyer&midget"beside are not there for some reason  :-[

in the recap itself I haven't made anything up , all the thing that where written (and I know what contestant you protect, I am sorry but she came out awful in this episode) where said on the show. you can blam the show's editors if you like...

Recap episode? (:;)

Loving the tasks that they're not copying off earlier versions. The fan puzzle, the bamboo dance, the Harajuku girls - if they weren't blatantly reusing displaced tasks (Finnish wife-carry in Vietnam?), I'd give them full points for creativity!

Double-length legs - no wonder Hannah (or is it Margalit?) wind up in hospital!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Aah. T'was a satisfying episode.

See? You can put Pit Stops at like the most famous attraction in a city!
*though it was very blatant product placement*

Such a waste of food... *craves Macanese peanut and almond cookies*

What tradition does Hong Kong have that would require a head shave? *stupid tasks hate* :dick

AAARHHHH! That's my street! *dies. repeatedly.*

Very well-played, show! Highly recommended episode, even for those who haven't been following TAR:I. (It's the 1.01.54 clip on their website.)

Here's a local's take on how it stacks up against the other Hong Kong episodes...

TAR 2.7 7/10: Great showcase of Hong Kong's blend of new and old, featuring herbal recipes and fishing junks juxtaposed with cargo ports and skyscrapers. Also, the awesomeness of "Did you ever think in your life you'd be in Hong Kong?"

TAR 2.8 8/10: Visit to Tin Hau was pointless, but... lions versus dragons! Limousines to the airport! And Oswald/Danny stumbling upon Hong Kong's biggest claim to fame! Aah. Delicious.

TAR 11 2/10: Too much dawdling on stunts, and inventing fake "traditions". Goes against entire spirit of The Amazing Race. FAIL.

TAR:A 2 0.5/10: Thanks, show. Go all the way to Hong Kong for product placement and a pointless task. Half a point because Hong Kong = money, and they got that right.

TAR:A 3 6/10: Campy tasks, but can see how handbags and gutting fish are part of the locale. Fortune cookies, though? Disappointing. (Announcement: you will find more fortune cookies in any store in San Francisco's Chinatown than you will the whole of China.)

TAR:I 1.7A 8.5/10: Hong Kong as crowded busy money-making metropolis. Correct! The subway beating the taxi. Finally! Dumping them in the centre of town with no regard for spoilers. Yes! Good use of culture: the absence of 4s, ping pong and much more. Upping the herbal tea, yet staying perfectly acceptable bounds! Drawback: They're force-fitting that FF into every locale now.

Damn. Previews look badass!

Anyone want to weigh in on the portrayal of your city/country in TAR:US/TAR:A/TAR:I?

PS. I was/am totally that nerdy kid with the glasses. Minus the ping pong prowess.

I would but they've only been to Scotland for a Highland Games Roadblock  (:;)

I absolutely loved this episode except for the head-shaving. That's that task been done in India, Brazil and now Hong Kong. Any places that I've missed? I liked the task with the numbers and then the safe.

All things considered this has been a great season so far. The only real drawback is that they keep copying tasks from other versions. The best tasks have been the ones they made up themselves.

Total agreeance. Hopefully the leg will drag on to the night next week! A perfect ten will never be achieved until they make use of Hong Kong's night lights... (Something like Macau last week would have been good!)

Total agreeance, again! I like their challenge producer. Number task could have been a liiitle bit better (less trivial numbers, please), but the tasks that they've come up with are sometimes genius.

(I thought TAR3 did Scotland pretty well, for the short time they were there!)

Actually, this is pretty obscure, but head shaving as a fast forward existed way back in season 2 in the Bangkok leg (Cyndi reported on TWoP that she and Russell were going to do it, but decideded against it because she heard Blake & Paige were going to). It was unused and unaired, though.

But I agree - this leg was perhaps the best of the season, minus the head shaving. And Guy & Shay and Maya & Amichay doing well. Everybody else here has spoken my mind, though, so no new thoughts. XD By the way, what was that one blonde doing in the previews that caused her to faint? Obviously it was to break through bricks, but does hurting your hand warrant taking an extended rest? :P

That's the one I forgot. I knew there was one somewhere else, it just slipped my mind when I was typing my post.

PS. I was/am totally that nerdy kid with the glasses. Minus the ping pong prowess.

Just looking at your posts, it made me so much eager to return to HK! (And yes! I'm returning there quite soon!!!  :jumpy: :jumpy: :wohoo: :wohoo: I just hope any race would be filiming! Last time I returned there, TARA3 was filming on the very exact day I got lost in Central and in Mongkok - I was almost there with the racers and the clueboxes the whole time and didn't even see it!)
Just with the tasks and WIKI, I'm more than happy to see other sights and sounds of the place other than what we usually go to...

And Neobie, I quite agree now that TAR:AS HK leg was the worst of all complete Hong Kong legs.
And TARA2's Hong Kong drop by was the worst drop by to another country made by any race together with Germany during their season.

I'm quite eager to watch this show already!!! I just couldn't understand a thing  :'( :'( Just looking at the wiki makes me so excited to watch this!

I wish our US TAR would be equal to their greatness! I also wish TARA (whom they have the same producer in Israel - McKay?? Am I right??) be as good as this one, because they just proved that they could really make quality television!
