Here is the official press release:
Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia Announces The Amazing Race Asia Season 5 for AXN

Singapore May 20, 2016 – Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Networks, Asia announced today that it will bring The Amazing Race Asia back for a fifth season. This marks the return of the popular global format to general entertainment powerhouse AXN, which was home to the series’ previous four, top-rated seasons.

Virginia Lim, Vice President and Head of Content and Marketing for SPT Networks, Asia, said: “High quality original productions like The Amazing Race Asia are the cornerstone of our programming strategy. The U.S. version continues to be one of our most popular series on AXN, so it was important to find a way to reignite our beloved Asian adaptation.”

“The Amazing Race Asia has been a successful format around the region bringing compelling quality content recreated in a locally relevant manner for audiences here. We are excited to work with SPT Networks to bring back this highly-rated reality series and to deliver it in a very engaging platform for fans,” said Mark Chan, Head of Disney Media Distribution, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia.

Based on the Emmy Award-winning adventure reality series distributed around the world by Disney Media Distribution, The Amazing Race Asia 5 will premiere on AXN in late 2016 and promises to be the most adrenaline-fueled season ever. Ten teams chosen from across the region will compete in a high-octane dash around the world for a chance at the winning crown and USD$100,000 in cash.

A call for team applications will be announced next week when AXN will invite aspiring racers to submit their audition videos to prove that they have what it takes to be part of The Amazing Race Asia’s ultimate adventure.

Allan Wu likens ‘Amazing Race Asia’ to a ‘long-lost girlfriend’ 

By Edwin P. Sallan, InterAksyon.com
   September 25, 2016 · 4:29 pm
 

   
After AXN’s “The Amazing Race Asia” completed in fourth season in 2010 and did not come back on the air, Allan Wu admitted that he did miss the popular reality competition series that he had hosted since day one.

“People would keep on asking me, you know, when is the show coming back? We and our whole family loved the show so much. There was so much action, so much happening in each episode, so I myself missed it so much,” the Singapore-based actor and TV host recently told InterAksyon.

So when the makers of the show announced its long-awaited fifth season after a hiatus of six years, no one was happier to be part of it than Allan himself.

“It’s like this long-lost girlfriend who said, ‘Hey, Allan, would you like to get back together with me and travel the world and see the world and unfortunately eliminate some teams but at the very end, everyone will have the most amazing journey on this show? And you also get to reward the US$100,000. You wanna do it?’ I’m like, ‘Hell yeah! Of course I’ll do it.’ And so we are back. And we are back in full gear,” he enthused.

Allan said the show’s return immediately brought back a lot of wonderful memories for him, particularly the time when he was cast as host of the show 10 years ago.

As for himself, Allan confessed that he was not sure how this season is going to go since they have a whole new team at the network and a whole new production team.

“There was a lot of questions in my mind but I think I couldn’t be more proud and happy with how results all went. I feel great about this season and I hope our audiences will be, too when we finally go on the air.

“The Amazing Race Asia Season 5” premieres on Thursday, October 13 at 9PM, first and exclusively on AXN. AXN is seen on Cable Link Channel 38, Cignal Digital TV Channel 61, Global Destiny Cable Channel 61, Dream Channel 20, GSat Channel 51, and SKYCable Channel 49

Considering the timing, I'm sure this isn't a surprise, but we have no breaks this season and TARA5 will air in its 10-leg entirety all the way to December 15. Our winner is going to have a Merry Christmas indeed!  :funny:

LOL!!!! @JAKARTAWHERE, (it says National Monument at Jakartawhere) it is very obvious that it is the MONAS.

regarding the surprise at the start line, it could be the SAVE PASS. so if this is a 10-episode show then they have originally planned to have no NEL
