on that case, will there be no more new season of TAR Asia in the future? :ascared

Here's how Google translates that news story.

The program consists of several teams, each team has two people together through the implementation stage in many different locations around the world. The teams had to travel by various means such as aircraft, helicopters, buses, trucks, bicycles, trains, boats or on foot ... to collect the instructions and place next to each stage. This journey lasted continuously for 25 to 30 days. Best team in the final stages of the award-winning program.

Shortly after its inception, The Amazing Race has attracted audience quickly through the scene is done entirely in external action and characterized.

The Amazing Race 8 times Primetime Emmy Award award in the category TV program brings the reality competition. Emmy Award is the first important award in the broadcast industry, which is comparable to the Oscars in film or music Grammy.

During the first organization in Vietnam, Vietnam The Amazing Race is the name of the race interesting. Specifically, the program for 10 teams, each team of two people will have the opportunity to experience something new, exciting journey through the challenging locations to highlight the cultural, natural and people throughout the regions of Vietnam. The teams competed together for 30 consecutive days and types slowly each team in the implementation stage. Team on target early in the final leg to win.

Obviously the translation could be better. This story sounds like it's already been filmed. I wonder if this is the version that was filming in the Philippines after Pekin Express wrapped up. There were reports of another version being filmed there.

As for TAR Asia being affected, I doubt it. TAR Asia is on AXN and this is on VTV. Different networks, so probably one doesn't affect the other too much.
