Why didn't Phương Thảo do the roadblock at the circus task when a woman's natural ability will overcome the 3 tasks with relative ease?

But it was fantastic to watch Minh Hoàng do the hula hoops with his knees/thighs!!!   :yess: :yess:

Sad to see the travellers go - they were a strong team but it's Chí B́nh's "mathability" that got them a 90mins penalty - why didn't they take the penalty earlier? & why was it just a 90mins penalty instead of the usual 4 hours???  :duno:
They didn't plan to quit at first cuz they said it'd be a shame to quit. Also that task wasn't detour or roadblock so they weren't penalized 4 or 6 hours.

Ep 12 Recap

Roadblock:
#1: Couple (=)
#2: Travelers (+2)
#3: Brothers (=)
#4: Actors (=)

Pit stop (keep racing):
#1: Couple (=)
#2: Travelers (=)
#3: Actors (+1)
#4: Brothers (-1)

Route Info: Travel to District 4 Sports Center in Ho Chi Minh City to receive your next clue (I drive past it everyday, how come I didn't see the flag :duno:).
Teams took a boat to Kien Giang and traveled to HCMC by bus.
#1: Travelers (+1)
#2: Brothers (+2)
#3: Couple (-2)
#4: Actors (-1)

Route Info: Teams had to go to the swimming pool at the sports center. Here, one team member entered an underwater cage with little breathing space. The other team member then had to solve five extremely complex math problems without using paper or a calculator. They would then have to swim 50m across the pool and use the five answers they came up with to unlock the cage's padlock. Finally, both team members then had to place 11 flags on a large map of Vietnam, representing the 11 locations they visited.
#1: Actors (+3)
#2: Couple (+1)
#3: Brothers (-1)
#4: Travelers (-3) (spent almost 5 hours here, quit)

Detour: Ears or Eyes
In Ears, teams traveled to Ho Chi Minh University of Film and Theater (I also drive past it everyday :lol:) and had to learn and perform a scene from the cải lương play called “Lan and Diep”.
In Eyes, teams traveled to the Martial Arts Training Center and had to learn and perform a series of Martial Arts moves.
#1: Actors (Ears) (=)
#2: Couple (Ears) (=)
#3: Brothers (Eyes) (=)
#4: Travelers (Eyes) (=)

Route Info: Travel to the 23/9 Park Circus to receive your next clue.

Roadblock: Who likes thrills?
One team member had to perform three circus acts including balancing on a balancing board for three minutes, spinning three hula hoops without dropping any for another three minutes and successfully performing a flying trapeze to receive their next clue. These tasks could be completed in any order.
#1: Actors (Thành Phúc) (=)
#2: Brothers (Thanh Bằng) (+1)
#3: Travelers (Hồng Long) (+1)
#4: Couple (Minh Hoàng) (-2)

Route Info: Travel to Anh Sao Bridge, the pit stop for this leg of the race.
#1: Actors (=) (won 2 nights @ Vinpearl Resort)
#2: Brothers (=)
#3: Couple (+1)
#4: Travelers (-1) (arrived 3rd but received a 90-minute penalty for quitting a task; Eliminated)

So ep 13 is the finale already, so fast :wohoo:
Here's my prediction for the finale:
Winners: Brothers
Runner-ups: Actors
Third place: Couple
What's yours?

The trend of the overall finishing order has been strong, weak, strong, weak, etc. and if it continues, the actors finish second. But then again, they've been alternating between 3rd and 1st for a few legs now. The actors also won the third leg, and we all know what that means.

The dating couple has finished in every placement between 1st and 8th except for 2nd, so perhaps they'll get it this leg.


I don't dislike any of the teams, so I'm ok with any of them winning. I at least hope for an exciting final leg.

Agree. But I want the couple wins  :'(

I smell the brothers will win because they have a fanpage on Facebook, while the other strong, super cute teams like the couple, Baggio's team, or the travelers don't  :o

Here're the 5 math problems teams had to solve in leg 11.


Also, is the final leg going to be in Ho Chi Minh City as well?
I don't think so cuz it'll be an advantage for the couple and actors since they live there.

Each team has different math problems to solve. Here is the math board of Baggio's team

The time difference at the start may be the decider but we'll never know as:-

1. Actors started at 8:00
2. Brothers started at  9:00
3. Couple's start time not shown  :duno: :duno:
4. Time of reaching the mat for each team were also not shown...  (:;)

Oh well... but to me any of this team deserve to win as they are generally nicer than the US ones...  :keeta: although I supported the Couple...  :conf:

BTW anhgau2007, who is/was pregnant?  :duno: 

Now on to China Rush 3 = http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,25998.50.html  )-**

Well, maybe the finale is not the best leg, the result is not what I wanted, but the racers in this episode really inspired me a lot. This is the first time Vietnam has a reality show like this, so I can’t really blame on them. I just hope for better seasons in the future so we can enjoy this great reality show :hearts:

Thanks anhgau2007 for the detailed recaps (better than the wiki one = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_Vietnam !) and the little nuggets of information here & there (this is indeed news - Minh Hoàng and Chí B́nh did a nude photo shoot!).   :tup: :tup:

For a 1st timer, this franchise did rather well, IMHO...  :)

This race has shown me that there are more to Vietnam than HCM City!  )-**

Well, now on to season 2!  :hearts:

Thanks again!  :tup: :tup:

(I wouldn't be surprised if anhgau2007 was the one updating wikipedia), but thank you anhgau2007 and lepnit304 for your added stuff to this discussion thread.


I'm also impressed at what all has been shown of Vietnam. I had no idea that some of this existed, such as the sand dunes.



One other question: Do any of you know which team was being rooted for by people who actually know Vietnamese?

I only updated The Amazing Race Wiki. I don't know who updated Wikipedia, the details there are wrong sometimes.
Based on what I see, young girls and moms like the actors cuz they're... handsome (always that reason lol) while other people either dont like them or like Thành Phúc but hate Baggio. A lot of people like the couple and the travelers while the brothers don't have many fans (maybe cuz they're not... so fun to watch, but I like them). Also people like the cousins (purple team, cơm cháy team, supermen,...) so they turn to hate teams that U-Turned them lol. The co-workers have lots of fans too. RiMi have fans, but seems like they only like Richie. The others...
