Title: TAR Vietnam 2--ReCaps are here!!
Post by: Plaidmoon on May 28, 2013, 12:44:30 PM
I've run across some indications that TAR Vietnam 2 may be starting to film in the next week or two. I wasn't aware before this that TAR Vietnam was going to have a second season, so I thought I'd pass the news along. I'm not completely comfortable about posting what I found just yet and I'll try to get additional confirmation if I can.

Do we have any proofs beyond those "indications" ?

Are we looking at an international or a domestic race?
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam 2!!
Post by: Plaidmoon on May 28, 2013, 07:36:50 PM
Declive, I found something that probably shouldn't have been on the internet and I'm not comfortable revealing it at this time. Beyond that, I have no proof. Hopefully more will materialize later on. I'm sorry that I have to be mysterious about it, but I don't want to get anyone from TAR Vietnam in trouble.

Airlinesguy, I don't have any information about whether it will be an international race or one inside Vietnam.

It appears that TAR Vietnam 2 started filming today:

Kim Lee ‏@OfficialKimlee 6h
Day one shooting Amazing Race in Saigon. Was soooo hot 😥 pic.twitter.com/BKW0a2JdLb


(http://imageshack.us/a/img585/9559/tarvietnam2firstdayofsh.jpg)

Since the race has started, I can reveal that Kim Lee was the source of the information I had about TAR Vietnam 2. She's been tweeting for the last week or 10 days that she was going to be involved with TAR Vietnam 2 in some way, probably as a contestant. While it was apparently OK with the producers that she was tweeting (since she is still on the show) and is now tweeting during the race, I didn't want to take any chances of getting her removed by publicizing it in advance.

Her Twitter account lists her as appearing in "HANGOVER 2 , MAXIM & FHM COVER GIRL. #1 2011 FHM ***IEST WOMAN OF THE WORLD" and available for DJ gigs. Her web page http://misskimlee.com (http://misskimlee.com) appears to have been moved into a holding pattern from I saw a week or so back.

Were TAR VietNam contestants allowed to tweet during the race? If not, she may be production.  Good find, PM!
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam 2!!
Post by: Plaidmoon on June 02, 2013, 07:58:33 PM
Maybe she is with production, but I figured a model was more likely to be a contestant. Production seems more likely if she is tweeting. Maybe she's a replacement host?

Anyway, she has made several tweets today about going to a modeling photo shoot in Saigon. I can't imagine that they would let her out to do that if she's racing. There's nothing about filming TAR Vietnam today, so I guess it's an off day.

I'm finding her Twitter feed and the events she is listing very strange. I'm hoping she will put up a picture of a clue box or something unquestionably TAR soon.

But I think Huy Khanh is not bad. I really like what he performed on Vietnam Idol.  :conf:

Post by: paradoxinee on June 06, 2013, 04:15:10 AM
They're just B or C-rank celebrity. The first couple (2 DJs) I have never heard before. I hate that most of them are Actors, Singers or Models. Only one is athlete.
I think I will go with the only F/F team (blue team). Hien is very strong girl. She has already traveled to many places with her motobike. So She has experimental. I don't like her partner much through. Diep Lam Anh is a strong girl but she has attitude. Alpha male team might be Green team. For M/F team, I prefer the Purple one.

Not only is she going online during the race, but she apparently went to a photoshoot in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City and is now promoting an appearance in Bali on June 14th.

Here's a couple of her latest tweets.

Thanks Plaidmoon!  :hoot:

After it had been posted here, I found the article in the Saigon Times (I think) that had the pictures of the teams. I didn't realize that the text hadn't been posted here or I would have done so. I'm not sure if I can find it now because I'm on another computer. Anyway, I'm fairly sure the article said TAR Vietnam wasn't leaving Vietnam, that it was a domestic race. That implies that Kim Lee is either planning to leave the country on a scheduled off day to do her appearance in Bali and then return before the next leg begins or she expects to be out of the race by then and free to travel. Either thought is shocking, at least to me.  :wtf:

I suspect your friends won't find much in Bali unless they go to her DJ show and manage to talk to her.

By the way, looking through her tweets shows that she spends much of her life on planes. In the last 7-10 days before TAR Vietnam 2 started, she flew from Vietnam back home to Los Angeles then to Prague for an appearance, back home to Los Angeles for a day or two and finally back to Vietnam for the Race. If she doesn't do well on the show, it's got to be partly due to accumulated jet lag.  :alarm

Thanks. I was about 90% sure she had to be a contestant because being a model, actress and DJ wouldn't lend itself to doing most of the jobs on the production team. Her outside activities were confusing though. Obviously it's a much more informal race than most of the other versions. Not only eat, sleep and mingle, but moonlight at other gigs and travel internationally on your own!

Second Amazing Race season gathers local celebrities

TUOITRENEWS
Updated : 06/06/2013 13:08 GMT + 7
 
Contestants of the reality show Amazing Race 2013.
TUOI TRE
PrevNext1
The second season of the Vietnamese version of the reality show Amazing Race began on June 5 with the participation of a number of local celebrities, instead of celebrities and their friends, like last year.

This years competitors include DJs Tien Dat and Kim Lee, singers Pha Le and 365 band member ST, models Diep Lam Anh, Thu Hien, Ha Viet Dung, and Thanh Hoa, and actors Nhan Phuc Vinh, Linh Son and Phareal Phuong.

The participants will be divided into nine teams of two and compete in the race around Vietnam to win the VND300million (US$14,423) prize.
Actor Huy Khanh will also take over from actor Dustin Nguyens as the shows host.
The seasons twelve episodes will be broadcast at 8pm every Friday from July 27 on VTV3.
Baggio and Thanh Phuc were the winners of the first season.

Created by Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster, the original series has aired in the United States since 2001 and has earned thirteen Primetime Emmy Awards, including every award from 2003 to 2012 for "Outstanding Reality-Competition Program", except in 2010, when Top Chef won.

That's what I heard. The final leg is the only leg Express Pass can not be used. This season, the rule is somehow easier than before. Maybe because of Celebrity Edition.

You build Realityfan Wiki, right? I check and realize some mistakes:
- Leg 2, S. T and Hng Phong initially arrived at 8th, not 7th
- About Roadblock, Đức Hưng did 6 (leg 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10) and Thuỳ Dung did 5 (leg 1, 2, 3, 9x2)

Um...call me crazy, but do we even SEE TD & ĐH doing the Roadblock on Leg 3? I just re-watched the episode from the point they completed the blindfolded beach challenge and got all the way to Kim Lee & Pharreal doing the Roadblock.

If you know, could you tell me the time when we see them at the Roadblock?

I don't understand why they (production) change the rules completely. It makes the race getting boring because the position is always same as previous leg.

The editing is still really bad. Even worse than last year. They makes the race look like an easy pie althought it's hard.

But the cast save the show. This year, there are many different personalities. They created a lot of dramas and funny monents and they caught attention of many viewers. (Maybe because of they're celebrities). I like all the girls this season. They make the show more colorful. And some of the girls are getting more famous after the race. Especially Hari, she's a Korean girl, cancer survivor, her bf is a famous rapper and their love story's just like a soap drama on TV. Blue team, I don't like both of them on VN's next top model but on TAR, i really like how they play.

On the other side, Red team has a lot of haters. I'm OK with Linh Chinh but but NPV's bossy attitude   :meow:

There's only one final episode. I hope Blue win. It's really great when an all-female team win. *circle praying*

The show will be renewed for sure. BHD needs to fire editting crews. They sucks. All BHD's shows (VN's got talents, MasterChef, Vietnam Idol) are horrible because of editting. And Huy Khanh, if he continues hosting next year, please change the style.

@GB: I think you shouldn't replace "Thanh Hoa" = "Bng", "Bng"'s just her nickname.
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam 2--ReCaps are here!!
Post by: G.B. on October 08, 2013, 11:24:14 AM
@Quoc Nghia I gave some consideration to that. The rule of TAR wiki pages is that we identify them by how they're identified on-sceen. I got into a huge argument on the Israel TAR pages because the teams' "relationships" there were not matching what was displayed on-screen in Hebrew.

Luu Esther is represented as "Hari" because she is constantly credited on-screen as Hari. However, with the case of "S.T" and "Bng", they were only credited on SOME episodes as such.

S.T was credited as such on 1/2 episodes, which was majority enough for me to make an administrative decision to do so. However, Bng was only credited as such for 2/6 episodes. That's not enough, and she was more consistently credited as Thanh Hoa.

Oh man, that was you? I remember reading that! You don't speak Hebrew, do you? I ask because the team labels weren't always the same. Like, sometimes for Alon & Oren it'd say "Brothers", but other times it'd say "CEO & Lawyer" or something like that, and I think for Osi & Carmit it'd sometimes say "From X", X being their hometown. So in some cases what was on the Wiki page was correct and in others what you thought should be on the page was correct.


But anyway, I like Đức Hưng & Thy Dung but since Diệp Lm Anh & Thu Hiền made it to the final leg I'm rooting for the girls. I just hope the tasks in the leg won't be as ridiculously unfair as the one in last season's.

(http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c331/pampye/Cu1ED9c1100uaK1EF3Thuacute2013-T1EADp11FULLHD04_10_2013-YouTubeMP4_snapshot_5400_20131009_104629_zpsa93cdfe6.jpg) (http://s30.photobucket.com/user/pampye/media/Cu1ED9c1100uaK1EF3Thuacute2013-T1EADp11FULLHD04_10_2013-YouTubeMP4_snapshot_5400_20131009_104629_zpsa93cdfe6.jpg.html)

If not, i think we should use Hari, S.T. & Thanh Hoa (more popular names) instead of Lưu Esther, Sơn Thạch & Bng.

Definitely no parentheses.

In cases where things change from episode to episodes, I usually find it's best to go with what is displayed the most often. (Hence, Hari vs. Thanh Hoa)

In other news, I gotta stop being lazy and fix the TARV2 map -.-

Oh, speaking of Wiki work!! I'm still not sure I have all of the contestants' full names. For example, I've only found her called "Linh Chi" and nothing more. I don't know how Vietnamese names work, and I took everything related to their names from that other TAR wiki (bleck). If anyone has information regarding contestants' names, please let me know or make a contribution here:

Pardon my ignorance, heh, but how have you ordered these names? Is the "Family Name" on the right for all of them? I only ask so I can write the list consistently. (IE, you wrote Phuc Vinh Nahn instead of Nahn Phuc Vinh)

Yes. Nhan is Phuc Vinh's family name.
And also, Doan Manh's full name is Doan Tien Manh (Doan is his family name).
Diep Lam Anh's real name is Nguyen Diep Anh (Nguyen is her family name)

Perfect! You're awesome.

I don't know if you can help with this or not, but I'm still missing a few hometowns from TAR Vietnam 2012.

It's a bit difficult.
According to Facebook accounts, Thanh Phuc's hometown l Ho Chi Minh. Baggio was born in France but his hometown in FB is Ho Chi Minh. I'm not sure about him.

I will ask my friend. He added friends with many racers and production crews from last season. I hope he can help.

Due to a state funeral of a famous general officer in Vietnam (General V Nguyn Gip), the season finale will not air this week. It was announced on Facebook.

TAR VN makes History. The first team to finish the Finish line might not win the prize because of penalty :))

The Red hit the finish line first but they had 30' penalty because of breaking the rules (at the roadblock and traffic laws). The Blue came 2nd when the penalty was not over and they won.  :hrt:

I can't believe they got penalties for what their taxi drivers did...

The host said that if the Red team stopped and changed motobike when the riders broke the traffic laws, they wouldn't be got penalty. Traffic in Vietnam is chaostic and this show was aired in national TV. Social media will go crazy if the Red didn't get the penalty.

Finally, thanks to moto-riders.  :funny: And bye bye Nhan Phc Vinh. He's Jonnathan (TAR6) of VN. I liked him when the race started because i watched a lot of his dramas but now I can't stand him.
