Interesting tidbit.



Quote
Former hurdler Liu Xiang's appearance as Sailor Moon received mass online mockery

Meanwhile, retired Olympic hurdler Liu Xiang made headlines last week, albeit for all the wrong reasons.

Just before the Olympics, he recorded an episode for reality show The Amazing Race China, dressed in cosplay as 1990s Japanese cartoon character Sailor Moon. Perhaps predictably, that caused a stir online.

While the segment was meant to be humorous, thousands took to social media to mock how "beautiful" he appeared dressed as a woman.

Some criticised his "crossdressing", saying he "seriously damaged his image" by appearing in such a way, and others said they now find him "disgusting".

There are also users asking more critically whether he has fallen on hard times since his Olympic fame back in 2004, when he won the first track and field gold medal for China.

Japanese animation Sailor Moon was hugely popular in the 1990s

If Liu thought the worst was over, he was wrong. A week later, social media users were asking again whether he was struggling financially after he announced that he was filing a lawsuit against online taxi service Didi, China's answer to Uber.

Xinhua says Liu claims that Didi used images of him without his authorisation in online advertising.

Poor guy :( Yes, that is a risk with TAR China's celebrity-based casting. They have an image to uphold, put them in embarrassing costumes or situations (like the Sailor Moon task) and the tabloids will be chomping at the bit to tear them down.

Not so, of course, when it's more average people.

That's horrible. 

I guess TAR China isn't going to be recycling the TAR26 Phuket cabaret task any time soon.

Not surprised by the reaction, dressing-up like that would definitely be viewed by local viewers as making a fool of oneself. And in Chinese pop culture, and I get the impression that might be common for other major East Asian cultures (like Japanese or South Korean), those type of "making fool of yourself" type of things should not be done by most celebrities, it's kind of something reserved for what's called in mandarin 諧星(Xie-Xin), I can't really find a proper translation for this term, while Google Translates just gives me "Comedian" which ain't an exact translation at all. Those type of celebrities not exactly common in western cultures, the only person that I can think of that comes slightly close to what would be considered Xie-Xin in the US would be Conan O'Brien, and that seems like a stretch, cause there's also some level of being a C or D-list star associated with the expression. All of this just to say, that "making a fool of oneself" like that would only be appropriate for those types of celebrities, not an Olympian, thus the unsurprising backlash.

Hello everyone!

So we had a lot more penalties, but I wasn't quite able to follow them this time. What did Tingting/Rui and Zhehan/Sifan do wrong in the Detour?

Hopefully the Chinese Wiki will be updated soon, but if it's not...What was the location of the two Detours and the U-Turn board? (They're shown on the map in Chinese)

Aaaaand, here's the Detour names and Roadblock prompt. Please transcribe them, thank you!

Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

Sorry, I meant the U-Turn REVEAL board. It's a road Intersection in Barcelona somewhere.

That would be the Columbus Monument near the Rambla del Mar. Much closer to the bed option than the theatre option!

I am really loving this season. And Jin Xing & Hans need to be on TAR Asia 6 or TARUS, really.

This season is probably going to end up with the highest total distance

(Yes, I count things like flying from Russia back to China. They still had to make that flight after all, even if they weren't being filmed)

Was just reading the Wiki, got three observations:
- Shouldn't the filming dates for each leg also be included in the entries? I believe we know all the filming dates for the season. Or is the info there, and I just missed it.
- Was re-watching Leg 3, there should be a correction made towards what the additional 45-minute penalty Vanness and Melody received. It was not about receiving help, but it was after failing to read out the answer the 1st time around, they simply returned with the correct answer without riding the coaster again.
- BTW the UTurn vote result that's on the wiki, not matching the one I'm finding on Wikipedia (Chinese entry), what was the source?

Also just watched Leg 6, and gotta say I'm really loving the season design, and how they manage to incorporate not just Olympic cities but Olympic tasks. And they probably did the Face-Off better than the Canadians have done so far, I think this was my favorite use of it.
Some teams are lucky for the way they film this version, as there's almost a two weeks break between this leg and next one.

I was away this weekend, but I got a chance to watch the Rome episode. Jin Xing was one of the most enjoyable racers I've seen. Very funny lady.

The English Wikipedia listed Dachuan and Chang as the non-majority of the votes, but that's apparently changed now. I will fix it when our Wiki comes back online.

And here's the Chinese. You know what to do! ;)



...Oh! And where did the Roadblock and Catapult Detour take place?

Once it is in the Media it is no longer a Spoiler. If TAR China shares it, it is press, not a spoiler. Sorry...

The route was included in the first five minutes of the first episode though! :)

The trebuchet task was at the Parco Lineare Integrato delle Mura near Porta Metronia.

Another great leg. Sad about Jin Xing and Hans but I really like everyone else left so its okay. (Actually, I've enjoyed every single team this season.)

And this is one of only 2 times I've not been angered or annoyed by a Face Off/Duel Duel. (The other was TARPH2's carabao racing.)

I'm anxious to see the next eps with less teams. One reason I kind of lost interest in the latter halves of TAR China 1 and 2 and can never really get into HaMerotz is the looong episodes. They bore me sometimes, especially when I can't understand the language. The length though has always been a downer for me. Kinda made me appreciate TARPH's daily, shorter eps.

Loved that Universal Studios task! :D

This was a great Leg. Maybe the best LA Leg of any TAR I've seen hehe
It made me miss Jin Xing and Hans though. If only just to see them be Bill and Rose and be cowboy action stars.
