What did the Malaysian teams pack for
The Amazing Race Asia: Season Five?
The Amazing Race Asia, one of the most adrenaline-pumping travel-themed reality game show, is back on AXN with season 5.
It’s fun to watch from the comfort of our sofas but for the 11 competing teams, this is the most intense travelling experience of their lives. It is a trip that they can’t plan and have no control over. For the entire month of travelling, they don’t know what will happen the next minute, what more which country they’ll be the next day.
Did you know that the contestants are not allowed to bring their cellphones? And that they can only pack one carry on for the whole month of racing? Neither did we, until the three Malaysian teams, Alex & Will, Chloe & Yvonne, and Brandon & Alphaeus, revealed during a catch up session with Zafigo.
We dug more behind-the-scenes info and found out that the contestants were not allowed any communication with friends and family during the course of the race. That was, as they sighed, the most challenging part of the entire experience. The lack of smartphones was also why all of them packed an alarm clock and extra batteries in their backpacks.
What exactly does one pack for The Amazing Race Asia? We got the three teams to unzip their backpacks and show us their 10 travel essentials.
