Okay, that's 2 product placement by Dialog already. And now we have a HUGE YELLOW duck by Hilton. I think the Travelocity Gnome is still cuter though.
Anyway, this leg is where it gets to good old amazing race asia. You have so many random tasks you have to complete that totally switch up the placements of the teams.
The matching of the face mask could have been one part of a Detour choice or a Roadblock. Just make all those people wearing mask to be in a crowded market and one team member has to find it. But i like it alot. It shows the culture of Sri Lanka.
The Roadblock is like, lame and forgettable. I still like my idea of making the mask task a Roadblock above.
The Detour is good. I like it, just that the tree climbing one could have 2 stations instead of one to make it more exciting. It got abit lame after teams had to win down there for the other team to complete, which ultimately sealed Wendy and Alan's fate.
I don't really care about the last 2 teams this leg.. like the fact that the Richards are SO MUCH BETTER than Marc and Rovilson who're like ultimate fame whores, the Richards on the other hand are nice and hasn't done anything annoying yet. The Malaysian guys are getting much edit, wanna bet they're in the final 3? I think Jess and Lani are not getting as much edit that they should be getting, so i guess they most probably won't make the top 5. Michelle and Claire are getting a tweeeeeny bit more facetime this episode.
Based on the performance + screentime so far, i predict that this will be the final 5 -
1. Richard and Richard (definite)
2. Ethan and Khaire (definite)
3. Dimple and Sunaina
4. Ivan and Hilda
5. Michelle and Claire (more screentime than the father and daughter and Jess and Lani)
The next 2 teams eliminated will most probably be Jess and Lani and the indian boys, with the father and daughter in sixth.
And i think the Richards and Ethan and Khaire, both of them will even make it to the finale and one of them will win. BUT, this is The Amazing Race Asia and you really never know. I don't mind both of them getting eliminated because then it will really surprise me much. But until then, i'm pretty sure i've got 3 to 4 of the predicted final 5 teams correct.
