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.

“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.
