This season is All-star and it seems that a lot of Switch back will happen.

Twist: Depending on team order in the previous leg, the departing time for teams will have 5 minutes gap. So basically, even if you are 1 hour behind a team at Pit stop, you still depart only 5 minutes after them next leg.

Pretty good first episode. However, they focus too much on fan-favourite teams a.k.a Green and Pink. It's annoying me sometimes.

And they still put a lot of physical challenges.
Show content
No wonder that M/M team won a leg and F/F team came in last.

I'm not sure if the casting for this all-stars season is genius or completely insane. It's interesting definitely. I wouldn't really call it 'All-Stars', but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I guess it was a pretty good first leg with a lot of the bad, bad editing we've come to know.

Is Thu Hien the one listed as "Trần Hiền"? Different name?
I forgot which one is Song Ngu. Long hair or white hair?
Did we get a name for the island with the ropes task, or is it just a random island?

1. Her full name is Trần Thị Thu Hiền. Trần is her last name.
2. Song Ngư = Long hair, Trc Như = white. I don't know what's wrong with racers' hair this season. Blondie Thanh Hoa, Blue Richard, White Trc Như, they all look horrible.
3. Name of island: Rừng Trm Island.

It's an Anime season, obviously! XDD I actually like Richie's hair, though. It's my favourite shade of blue.

Actually, I have another question to make sure I understand everything.

Which of the teams are in a romantic relationship (because the subtitles don't say like in other versions)? Are any of them a Mark & Mallory style strangers team?
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam Season 5 All-Star: SHOW Discussion
Post by: paradoxinee on April 01, 2016, 04:55:41 PM
No Mark and Mallory style.

Romantic relationship, I think only Richi & Mimi. Other teams are just friends. Huong Giang & Cris are Ex like Tim & Marie.
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam Season 5 All-Star: SHOW Discussion
Post by: G.B. on April 01, 2016, 08:53:43 PM
I thought I heard someone in the opening say "Marriage time" or something. Could have been a joke.

Speaking of RiMi, I was laughing so hard when Mimi didn't say a single word besides her own name during their introduction piece. I thought she was going to be a piece of cardboard throughout the race, but I was pleasantly surprised to see them finish so high.

Richi is not really a casual cast, actually. I think after the race, he appeared in some TV dramas and talkshows.

RiMi is a marriage couple.  :luvya:

http://realityfanwiki.com/index.php?title=The_Amazing_Race_Vietnam_2016

There are some mistakes here.

- Huy Khanh is the host.
- Mimi is office worker, and Richie is actor, I believe.
- Dang Hoang & Thuy Anh, both of them are actors, Dang Hoang is also a teacher.
- Express pass is valid up until 9th leg.

You should consider Thuy Dung & Phuc Vinh as a composite team, right?

Post by: G.B. on April 02, 2016, 01:10:57 AM
You should consider Thuy Dung & Phuc Vinh as a composite team, right?

That format of listing returning teams is based off of Wikipedia, and I believe "composite" is intended to mean teams from separate seasons. Eric & Danielle are listed in the same way that Thuy Dung & Phuc Vinh are.

I still hate TARVN for too much physical challenge. No wonder why Green team is dominating the race.
And Penalty rule is a mess.

Post by: doctor.nguyencaonhan on April 07, 2016, 12:35:44 PM
I wonder if the 4-hour penalty is set for all Roadblocks in the original version? As in this version, many types of penalties are used for Roadblocks: 5 minutes for the Roadblock on the first leg of Season 2 (:v , unbelievable), 4 hours for the Roadblock on 5th leg of Season 2 (suitable penalty)and 2 hours for today's leg's Roadblock (should be longer)
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam Season 5 All-Star: SHOW Discussion
Post by: G.B. on April 07, 2016, 06:05:26 PM
TARV is nothing compared to TARLA when it comes to physical challenges.

So this is the list of locations I've got for this one!
-Village House
-Village Bridge (RBK)
-Village Farm (DTR)

...I hope there's some better names for these out there, haha.

Oh by the way, since they've been on two seasons now, do we know Song Ngư's full name yet?

I like this little clip they posted of the task (drones!)
https://www.youtube.com/v/M6H3ibUSnsU

Very epic feeling with the music and all. And that must be the most locals I've ever seen watching a TAR task hehe Fun!


Also, I love that TAR Vietnam posts all the episodes on YouTube, complete with Sting commercial intro. And they excitedly title it "FULL HD" too.  TAR China also.
If only certain other TARs did the same thing. *cough*TARPH*cough*  :grins:

I read some comments on facebook and they said that in Behind the Scenes, Huong Giang said that Yellow Team strategy was to spill water to do the challenge faster because they thought that they only had 15 minutes penalty. But then, this stupid move bit them in the ass. Because of this, Dang Hoang and Huong Giang had a fight on facebook. Then, Dang Hoang asked the producer to delete this behind the scene episode and they re-edited it and cut that sensitive scene.  :funny: Mess.  :funny:

Next time, teams will cook Cho Hnh (Onion Congee), a famous dish from a Vietnamese short story. Team members will roleplay Chi Pheo and Thi No, I think.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%AD_Ph%C3%A8o

Quote
When Ch Pho woke up, it had been daylight. He felt tired out. He listened to acquainting sounds of daily life outside. He thought about the past, the present and the future and felt sad. He knew he was old but still lonely. At that moment, Thi No came in bringing a pot of hot onion soup. Ch Pho was very surprised and moved because it was the first time he had been given something by a woman. He wanted to be honest. He hoped Thi No would reconcile him with everyone.

Hey guys! Saw the episode and have some questions before I do up all the Wiki stuff.

1. How many kg of firewood did teams need, and how man km did they need to carry it? (I believe they say both in the episode)
2. What kind of food was made in the Loaf Detour?
3. What exactly was that thing they made in the Hair Detour? (Made out of string? hair? What was it dipped in?)

I'm also curious about Team Cyan. Was Son Ngoc sick, or just exhausted? What were they talking/crying about before walking to the Pit Stop?

Thanks a lot! :D

Thanks a lot! :D

1. 15kg each. However, if they said the right password (which they found about in the puzzle task, it's actually the man's name and name of his village), they have 1kg off each (14kg each). I'm not sure about km. I will re-check it. I watch it online last night so may be miss some details. Just remember they had to bring it to the man.
2. It's call Bnh Giầy. There are many kind of Bnh Giầy in Vietnam. This one is a special kind from H Nh people.
3. It's kind of wig, not the real hair. I think it make from string. It's dyed by special herb mixture.
4. Team Cyan: During Wooden task, Mau Thuy took a lot of time to do the rope tie. Son Ngoc Minh wanted to help but Mau Thuy didn't want to so he was mad. From that moment, they rarely talked to each other (that's why in the SeeSaw task, you saw them sitting separately during Purple team's bickering). Before the Pitstop, Son Ngoc Minh apologized Mau Thuy and then water-work which I find so forcely drama and annoying.

1. 10 kg for female and 15 for male.

Son Ngoc Minh is a useless whiny crybaby boy, I don't know why he has a lot of fan girls.

Hey what's up. Very involved leg this time.

1) I need some help with the Detour. How would you translate those names? Google translate says "Bỏ Di" is a "silverside drum". How did the La Lng Detour work, exactly? Did the song/style of song have a name, and what was the woman's erhu-like instrument and the drums called?
2) Did we get a name for the temple where the U-Turn is?

And can I just say, it's so great to see Mimi actually giving a damn. She's like a completely different girl from her Season 1 appearance. I'm definitely rooting for those two.

1. Honestly, I don't know how to translate these idioms because the meanings of them are irrelevant to the tasks.
Đnh trống bỏ di (Đnh trống: beat drum, bỏ di: leave drumsticks): describe someone with bad attitude, not take responsibility with something they did.
Đnh trống la lng (Đnh trống: beat drum, la lng: scream): describe a shady, sneaky persons who blame their mistakes to the other one.
I think that we just make it simple such as Đnh trống bỏ di = Make a drum, Đnh trống la lng = sing with drums.

2. Ancestor temple of Doi Tam drum village

I can't write it all but this is the main contents:

- Detour:
+ Đnh trống bỏ di: Make a drum
+ Đnh trống la lng: Xẩm singing
Xẩm or Ht xẩm (Xẩm singing) is a type of Vietnamese folk music which was popular in the Northern region of Vietnam but is considered nowadays an endangered form of traditional music in Vietnam. In the dynastic time, xẩm was generally performed by blind artists who wandered from town to town and earned their living by singing in common places.
Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Vietnam#X.E1.BA.A9m

And can I just say, it's so great to see Mimi actually giving a damn. She's like a completely different girl from her Season 1 appearance. I'm definitely rooting for those two.

I didn't like Mimi in season 1 because I thought she was useless, but I really love her this season. She gave her best to carry the wood, she made the right decision in Leg 4 detour but Richie didn't listen and wanted to change (that's why she was so angry and cried in confession). She supported her husband when Richie wanted to give up the Detour in leg 5 because he realized that the amount of money in this leg is too much, 1,200,000 VND. It's great to see Mimi like this.

Yes but the judge were so kind compared to Hat Xam task. That made the Detour so unbalance. And Green will be in top until the end. They were in the back most of the leg then bump, physical task

My hometown is Hue city so I was really excited to watch this episode. I like the idea of the producer, they wanted to show different side of Hue. When someone thinks of Hue, they will think about the buildings of Nguyen dynasty. But beside that, Hue has beautiful natural sight-seeing and the ecomony developed quite well. However, I think the tasks haven't delivered it yet and this episode becomes boring, so they focus on bickering stuffs to make it more exciting.

Hey everyone! Leg 6 is complete, and a bit of an unexpected elimination. I have some questions.

1. Did the Roadblock take place in Tuy Hoa, or a different city?
2. Was there a name for the martial arts/posing teams did in the Learn Detour? (It looked neat!)
3. Did we get a name for the lake for the Do Detour? (Is it perhaps the same lake with the big wood bridge?)
4. The beach with the last task, is it called "Ban" Beach?

I really liked seeing Phu Yen. I love the southeast Vietnamese coast. It's one of the worldwide places I'd like to visit for a vacation.

Depends on what's written in the clue. The meat Roadblock was about attention to detail, but this one was just "Do this", so producers are probably fine with advice.

I'm OK with the fact that after U-turn there are some tasks for teams to overcome. But the tasks after U-turns require teams to wait in line made the Uturn so useless because waiting time was even more than the time Pink team needed to finish the other Detour. Pink team had to do another Detour and they finished the second RB after two times trying. Purple team finished the second RB after three times trying. So 1 time to try the RB of purple teams was even longer than Salt Detour of Pink team. And also, I can't get used with penalty time after every fail. OK, you have to wait in line if there are other teams but if there is no teams, you still have to wait @_@

What a lovely blur shirt Thuy Dung was wearing this week! :D

Here's the help I need this week.
1. DETOUR! Where did each of the two Detours take place? How much salt needed? Also, do we know what kind of fish those were?

All about the numbers:

Roadblock 1: After 45 minutes, teams finish 1/3 of a bow will get 1 hour penalty, finish 2/3 will get 15 minutes penalty.

Detour:
- Salt: Long Sơn commune, Vũng Tu city. They have to fill 5 wheelbarrows of salt.
- Fish: Mr. L Văn nh's house, hamlet 8, Long Sơn commune, Vũng Tu city. They have to catch 3 giant mudskippers (thi li).

5. What did the blindfolded team member have to do at the temple?
6. How much is the exchange offer after the Fast Forward? (60 or 150?)

1. M kim đy biển. (Vietnamese idiom = Find a needle in haystack)

2. 3 black pearls. Team members can collect how many clams they want each round, but they have to find 3 black pearls inside the clams after a round unless they have to take 15 minutes penalty to do the next round. Nhan Phuc Vinh collected 8 clams but only 2 black pearls in it so he got penalty.

3. Lc ca lc cc = "Snake Fish Snake Toad"  :funny:
- Lc ca lc cc= Knock knock (not quite right)
- Thời gian tan chảy = Melting time

4. Ice detour: 5 minutes on the ice block, 5 minutes off. 1 member has to do it over and over again until his/her partner find the key. Members who find the keys have to draw to choose random tools, which was the reason why Tiến Đạt and Thy Dung got big spoons and Anh Tuấn got small one.

5. One member has to remember a poem with upbeat music and one member blindfolded (They don't explain why but I think this makes them not to see the body language and mouth of their partners).

6. 60 when Huy Khnh talked to Pink on the phone and 150 at the Pitstop.

Non elimination leg, the plane task supposed to be a Roadblock but then the crash happened so they moved on to next challenges and there are only Route tasks this leg. Then they canceled Sydney leg and replaced with a HCMC leg (Cu Chi tunnel).
The Orange has to complete an extra task because of NEL so maybe Speed Bump will be introduced next week.  :hearts: Last year winner will also come back next week and compete with remaining teams in a task.  :conf:

No roadblock, no detour. No prize for first place so Green team didn't even care to use EP to win the leg.
The task were OK but edit made it boring. I'm lol when Vietnamese viewers bashed this leg because they prefer physical tasks where the teams were exhausted.
And not a good move from production team when they even did not say anything about the camereman.

I think only the aerodome task. In the article, they said that the plan was that aerodome is the first task before the water skiing task. Aerodome task was also not at the same area as other tasks.

I think sheep task and bow task were good but penalty waiting time ruined everything. I don't know why Vietnamese production team like penalty time so much, teams literally have to wait everytime.

Green team is OK. They are boring, though.
I don't like Pink team. Huong Giang is annoying even she is clever. Her yelling to Criss isn't fun to watch like Marie to Tim (exes team). And her fans are also annoying in FB.
I love Red team the most because I loved both of them back in 2013 season. However, I feel that their edit is for third place, like Purple team 2013 (Dung's team back then). No seeing them winning.

So my bet is on Green team.
Title: Re: TAR Vietnam Season 5 All-Star: SHOW Discussion
Post by: Quốc Nghĩa on June 02, 2016, 09:24:40 PM
I liked Lincoln & Tiến Đạt in their season with their teammates. This season, they team up as strangers so they're so awkawd together and it's uncomfortable to watch.

I don't like Hương Giang either. The production makes me not like them more because they focus too much on their love drama. They make people feel like they have a chance back together after the race even it's not true. However, they have done great job this season and delivered good strategies, so I don't mind if they win.

I like Red the most because I can feel the bond between them but I don't think that they can win based on their edit and what they've performed this season.

That was the most boring episode of The Amazing Race I have ever watched in my life. They really need to shorten these episodes back to 1 hour. With the show's lackluster budget, there's just not enough to fill all of that time, especially when we get down to less teams. And what's with this weird melodramatic editing with the super-sad music? I was falling asleep.

I wanted the tennis players to win in Season 2, and since the Red team is made of half of it I've been rooting for them. They're not particularly good (which I don't understand considering how his team dominated that season), so the only way I can picture them winning is if there's an equalizer of some sort at the beginning or Pink and Green make a grave mistake.

Based on their record, Red team is probably doomed to finish 3rd place, and it's either gonna be Pink (despite their negative edit, I'd kinda like them to win just to make history) or Green. They're pretty neck-and-neck.

When I came to the stadium, there were 2 long lines of people were waiting to enter. Then, I came in and a girl from production team gave me a clue envelope, Sting and a fake sting tatoo.  :funny: I opened this envelope which was a Route Info with nothing inside. :funny: (They  just gave it for souvenir). There were 3 tasks, a live stream route task, a climbing roadblock and a detour between hoverboard and balance the bucket. The stadium was getting crowded and a lot of racer from this season and last seasons came, and a lot teen fans screaming like crazy.  At 8:30, the show began, Huy Khanh and Bang Di (3rd last season) were the host. I thought the final episode would broadcast for everyone at the stadium after that, but no, first, a lot of performance from singers (racers)   :funny:. Then, all about the sponsor aka Sting, the stupid representative couldn't seperate Pink team and Red team.  :funny:. And then fans asked racers questions, Green fans and Pink fans were so annoying and asked some stupid questions such as "Tien Dat, what do you feel when you raced with a handsome, manly man like Lincoln?" wtf. And finally the show began.  The final was pretty boring, they did the same tasks in HCMC in the final episode every freaking year. The audience could guess who was the winner because only Green showed up full team. (Huong Giang, Nhan Phuc Vinh and Thuy Dung were absent). Next season maybe Fan race or Fans vs. Celebrities again because Huy Khanh said he wished some fans at the stadium would compete next season.

I think this season is average, better than season 3 but still comes behind season 1, 2 and  4. If next year is a fans vs. celebrities season, I hoped fan teams would destroy celebrity teams like season 4 again.

Noone know why Red team had to do it 3 times when they were the only one who did everything right from the first try (except the attitude, based on the judge).

Were all three previous winning teams at the finish line? I saw 1 and 4's winners there.

Oh, and in response to the person who commented on several legs having the same placements, to be fair to the season the placements shifted in many of those legs and only turned out like that at the end.

Criss and Nhat Anh are friend out of the race. Nhat Anh are Criss's instruction when Criss learned diving.

This is a perfect time to bring up that there's still a few spots of missing information on our contestants table! If you have anything you can fill in, please let me know! :D

I actually was rooting for Huong Giang & Criss to win :lol: but ya this season was overall very underwhelming; hopefully TAR Vietnam can return to their form last season next year

idk how to feel about TAR Vietnam - TAR Asia crossovers

I really appreciate VTV and TAR Vietnam for making their episodes available to the world on their YouTube channel.  :hearts:  It's so encouraging and makes you want to watch even though I really don't understand a single bit of Vietnamese. 

This unlike other TARs that almost make a point to make their episodes unavailable and inaccessible to people who actually want to watch. Looking at you TV5 and TAR Philippines.

By the way, a record was set :D Lincoln & Tien Dat (1.64) overtake Rachel & Dave (1.83) as the highest-averaging winner ever.

Vietnam's produced a couple of strong winners. The diving coaches from last season were in a great position to do it if they hadn't gotten dinged on a couple of legs.

I remember talk of some TAR Vietnam teams auditioning for TARA5 and indeed a team apparently did audition, but not who was mentioned earlier.

This new TARA promo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FiufKBYV_Q) shows...

LINCOLN and TRANG!
(Same Trang from TARV4, right?)

That would be funny and cool if they did get cast. Lincoln with his 3rd partner, yes? hehe

Well with not much else to do today...almost got those Vietnam 5 Wikipedia leg summaries done at long last! Moved on to that long neglected page today right after finishing the last 3 legs of TAR China 4.

9 of 11 legs written, 2 to go. But my energy tank is running on empty for tonight.

You're very welcome :)

Was just going through the #amazingrace tag for TAR30 sightings on Instagram, and noticed this one - https://websta.me/p/1629861053507893246_1095700101

An ID card with the TAR Vietnam logo and "2017" on it. And below is "Ha Noi 25/10/2017".

Coming back for a Season 6, possibly starting in 5 days, it sounds like? The Asian versions are of course significantly more lax on NDA than others, so this wouldn't be too surprising.

Most likely starting to film on the 25th, as per Maanca. :)

I wonder if they will stay in Vietnam, or go out of the country?

Ah, yeah. Now that you mention it, that is a 15, not a 25. So it would have already begun.

I thought my eyes were perfect :lol:
