Fun fact: their current placement average (1.75 after 4 legs), is only topped by 15 teams worldwide, including teams that used the Fast Forward, Express Pass, raced in seasons with easier teams to beat or had tasks slanted to them.  :wohoo:

Interesting tidbit, these two applied for TARA4.

Quote
Being a participant of The Amazing Race Asia ( TARA ) has become a dream come true for Louisa.

Louisa had even almost joined the fourth season of about six years ago.

"When there was an audition for TARA season four, Louisa invited me," said Treasuri.

Fun fact: the girls are the first Indonesian team to win a leg in Indonesia, something Mardy & Marsio and Hussein & Natasha failed to accomplish.

Saddest elimination of the season. :( Words can't express how bad I feel for this team. It is impossible like Louisa said, and this leg designed to screw them was completely unfair.

Despite what they've been through on their last leg, they remained strong and optimistic as they can possibly be. They had their hopes up. Even though I didn't like them winning again, since they already have so many, I think they really deserve this leg, and every other that they've won actually. :hrt: They played fair, but the race didn't.  (:;)

I think I'll keep it this short. I'm thinking these 2 know the leg design was the main reason that screwed them, but they just couldn't say anything about it. I wish I could read their thoughts about that leg design here, on RFF.

Very brutal elimination. This leg was just too much for them. It was too much for me as well to see them go. It would have been better if it was like F4 Finale Race like US S.25 & S.26

Their FB live was a tearjerker too.

Have checked with GB.

In NO franchise has there EVER been a Yield and a UTURN on the same leg.

In only one instance has there been a UTURN before a Detour instead of after.

Combined with the 30 minute delay in giving them a horse, this was an impossible situation.

This was totally a complete fiasco by TARA. There is no excuse that covers such a bad leg design.  IF it was a preplanned event.

ANY team faced with a power should ALWAYS have hope. This ep provided NONE. I think TARA was bound and determined that since no powers were used previously that they would be used this leg. Unconscionable.


RFF's Golden Rule:
Have RESPECT for each other, regardless of opinion. This of course includes no flaming/insulting other users and/or their posts.

They had hope at some points, like how Louisa used the yield to her advantage and when they finished the detour in 1st. They remained really optimistic all the way to the end, and they should be admired for that. :luvya:

I find it ironically coincidental how the Philippines screwed over this team. They checked in 2nd to the last in the Philippine leg, and they were Yielded and U-turned by the 2 Philippine teams this season. :ascared

Yesterday, all Indonesian TARA fans (including me lol) gathered on a "Meet and Greet with Indonesian Racers" session. Treasuri & Louisa and Rach & Vicky were there. It was really fun! They shared their experience on the race (from the audition process till the race started) and also some behind the scene stories that we haven't known! They also shared some tips on how making a good application video and what to prepare for auditioning on TARA (turns out, if you apply with your parents, you'll have a bigger chance on getting in TARA!). After Q&A session, we had a photo & signing session. It was simply the best day of my life! lol. All racers are really kind and nice to us, fans. They really blended with fans, we eat and sit together hearing their stories. Treasuri & Louisa are really smart and nice. Rachel & Vicky's relationship is just like what we saw on TV, they totally didn't fake it :lol: and I need to say that Rachel is HILARIOUS :lol:

There were also some medias that cover our event; BeritaSatu & Jakarta Globe. Here's an article from Jakarta Globe:

Louisa, Treasuri of 'Amazing Race Asia' Share Their Experiences With Fans

Jakarta. "In our hearts, we are winners," said Louisa Kusnandar, a racer from Indonesia, after being eliminated from the fifth season of "The Amazing Race Asia." Her words resonated with the team's loyal fans as they flocked to Holy Smokes restaurant in Jakarta on Sunday (08/01) to meet and greet Louisa her partner racer, Treasuri Tamara.

Both were one of the two teams representing Indonesia in the last season, but they were cut off from the race after arriving last in the eighth episode. However, their efforts left a lasting impression on fans.

"We managed to gather these people here to appreciate what Louisa and Treasuri had done in the race. They were amazing. They always said they did it for Indonesia instead of personal gain. We really respect them," meet-and-greet coordinator Airlangga told the Jakarta Globe.

Though formed during the first season of "The Amazing Race Asia," in 2006-2007, the Indonesian fan base had been inactive for quite a long time before the fifth season.

"Even when the fifth season kicked off, we didn't have high expectations. Once we saw Louisa and Treasuri, we knew these guys were something," Airlangga said.

After that, Airlangga and some of the veteran fans of the show arranged screenings and hangouts, topping it with a meet-and-greet.

"We [the organizers] initially meant it to be an up close and personal session where we'd just have sit and have a chit-chat with Louisa and Treasuri. But when we rolled out the meet-and-greet announcement on Instagram, many people signed up," Airlangga said.

Almost 50 people turned up, who were all eager to listen to Louisa and Tresuri's behind-the-scenes stories. Most of them came from the Greater Jakarta area, but surprisingly a fan from Malaysia got himself included in the mix.

Louisa and Treasuri, who had been best friends long before "The Amazing Race Asia" and still are, reminisced about the race, from the funny anecdotes to their bitter ending.

"When I got the acceptance e-mail, I literally ran out of the house barefooted and just went around the neighborhood shouting 'We got in!'. I called every family member of Louisa's that I knew of to get in touch with her because she was in London at that time," said Treasuri, who is working as a lawyer.

Both thought the day was the most memorable, because it showed how they could exert every physical effort if they were committed to do their best despite not being used to doing intense exercise.

Louisa also told about how they managed to work together though their personalities are far from being two peas in a pod.

"I think our personalities are very different. I learned that, as long as we had the same will, which was to win, we could overcome the differences. No matter how annoyed or pissed off we were, we prevented ourselves from starting petty fights," she said.

Saying Goodbye to Bad Memories

Of all the stories, fans were of course most intrigued by the moments leading to the duo's elimination.

Back in the game, the fan favorites came out strong and were expected to make it to the final. Fans considered Louisa and Treasuri an example because they never incited any drama or demeaned other teams. They even allied themselves with one of the Filipino teams, Eric and Rona, the married couple.

It turned out Louisa and Treasuri were betrayed. They got "yielded," or stopped from the race for a determined amount of time, by Pinay beauty queens Maggie and Parul. In the same episode, they got "u-turned," or backtracked to complete the previous challenge, by Eric and Rona.

Not having much time afterwards, Louisa and Treasuri were last to reach the pit stop, hence their elimination.

"At that time, it definitely hurt a lot. I didn't get along much with Eric and Rona, but it just hurt seeing how kind Louisa was to Rona before that," Treasuri said, though these contestants still stay friends in the end.

The meet-and-greet certainly brought back some painful memories, yet Louisa said it also served as a closure to the whole racing euphoria.

"We may not have won, but seeing so much support and attention from Indonesian fans gave me closure. They understood that we did our very best," Louisa said.

Louisa, who has resumed working as a freelance news anchor at BeritaSatu TV, was amazed by netizens' support on social media back after she and Treasuri lost and by the number of people who showed up at the fan-organized meet-and-greet. She considered the event as a "closing and farewell ceremony."

Watching the final episode felt painful even before this. Now I can casually share stories and listen to people's opinions. So many people came up to thank me and Treasuri.

They really appreciated us. For fans of "The Amazing Race Asia," this is a big deal because this is the closest thing we can get to winning the race," said the anchor of "Prime Time," "Connect 360," and "Smart Living."
