If Singapore's Mediacorp ever created an Amazing Race Singapore.. i'll be the happiest man alive. Sighs.

  • For the winners go to spoil!
For those who can't watch it live (like me), I believe ICS is going to upload it onto their website here.

Not working right now, but I'd give them a day or so.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I'm actually watching it right now on the smg link (the one that resets)
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I think racers fare a lot better in China when they actually can speak Chinese

Now watching TAR: CR (no, not the place where Jen pees! :lol:)

WOW! I like it! It's cinematography (or the video taking, you know what I mean) is very impressive. The teams are lovable. Sound mixing and editing is commendable. The only thing I am not liking is Allan Wu himself... he's too lame, e.g. "Welllcooommmmeee to Chhhaaiiinna". (That is IMO)

But overall, TAR: CR is FANTASTIC! :colors :colors

P.S. The TAR: CR intro is :hearts: :hearts:

I'm getting used to Allan already. :lol:

I love the fact that they ate the entire turtle, this is even more cruel and evil than the fish eyes in TAR 10 Leg 1. And the puzzle piece task reminds me of the TAR 16 Final 4 task at the stadium. But then picking strawberries is something new, so that's cool. But you would have expected Leg 1 to include a very challenging task such as repelling or what.. but it didn't..

Who wanna make a bet that Rich and Josh and Rachel and Charlie are going to be in the final 3? :lol:

Teams i really like are all the 3 all-female teams, Rick and Joshua and Paul and Francis. Non of the co-ed teams appeal to me right now.

The Momshells are really hot, aren't they? :neener:

The one team i REALLY REALLY do not like is Deepak & Naresh, annoying, irritating and very very egoistic. Anyone remembers Sahil and Prashant from TAR Asia? Ewww.

I would say it's a good first leg, but the editing needs to get better. Halfway throughout i had no idea who's leading and who's not. It's all very mashed up.

I hate it that the Chinese Version is calling the race the Hamilton Race rather than the Amazing Race. Wth???

They are also calling TAR the Disney ABC TAR...which is partially true, but still!
