Previously on The Amazing Race Asia...

Five teams raced from Singapore to Yogyakarta, Indonesia!

A Roadblock at Jomblang Cave had teams walking the mile, but it was JK who took the fall and lost their lead!

In a game of memory, Treasuri & Louisa were on-point and on-target, jumping to a joyride ahead of all the other teams!

JK & Mike battled Yvonne & Chloe to avoid last place, overtaking the Malaysian beauty queens, but one wrong turn sealed their fate.

Four teams remain, who will be eliminated next?

Treasuri & Louisa depart first.

Route Info: Make your way by train to Banyuwangi, Indonesia. Once there, find famous coffee master something to get your next clue!

All other teams depart!

Parul & Maggie depart and say that if there's a sabotage power, they WILL use it to make it to the end.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive at the train station and discuss all other teams being in an alliance against them.

At the train station, Eric & Rona and Parul & Maggie get on the same train as Treasuri & Louisa.

All teams are now headed to Banyuwangi on the same train!

All teams arrive at night and at the coffee place. Master Setlawan is not there, and Yvonne & Chloe sign up first on an Hours of Operation. Parul & Maggie in 2nd. Treasuri & Louisa in 3rd. Eric & Rona in last.

The next morning, Yvonne & Chloe enter to an accompaniment of instrumental music and get a cup of coffee. They get their clue after finishing it!

Route Info: Make your way to the top of Kavah Ijen and hike your way three kilometers to the top of the volcano to receive your next clue. CAUTION: YIELD AHEAD!

All other teams follow.

Yvonne & Chloe ask their driver how far it is. Their driver says its two hours :o Chloe says that her ankle was hurt in the Singapore leg and hope that it's not detrimental to their performance in the leg.

All teams are now running up the hill and fighting to make it to the Yield.

Yvonne & Chloe arrive and say that it stinks and Yvonne says it smells like Chloe's armpits :lol: <3

Rona is crying :( She says that she can't feel her toes. She had a recent knee surgery. Eric asks if she wants to quit, Rona refuses and says there's no quitting.

Rona: #ICantFeelMyToes :lol: <3

Yvonne & Chloe arrive at the Yield. They choose not to Yield and get the Roadblock clue. Who wants to crush it?

Roadblock: One team member must collect 80kg of Sulfur to get their next clue.

Yvonne chooses to perform the Roadblock.

Parul & Maggie arrive and yield Treasuri & Louisa. Parul does it.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive at the Yield. They understand and instead choose to watch the other teams doing the Roadblock to get a good strategy at performing the task.

Eric & Rona arrive. Eric does the Roadblock.

Yvonne struggles at the Roadblock while Eric does well and other teams call him "BEAST MODE".

Parul: If anyone knows to mess with me, you know what's happening! *smashes rock* :lol: <3

The Yield runs out and Louisa chooses to do the Roadblock!

I didn't mention it, but Louisa is forced to do the Roadblock to even the RB count. Louisa gets heavier rocks to get more sulfur.

Eric is done! They're out in first!

Route Info: Make your say to SDN2 Kecamatan Gilagah! CAUTION: UTURN AHEAD! :o

We're back.

Yvonne & Chloe finish the Roadblock in 3rd! They discuss U-Turning Treasuri & Louisa because they are 2nd to last.

Treasuri & Louisa quickly finish in last. Treasuri carries Louisa on her back off the mountain. They hope that they'll get mercy from the other teams.

Eric & Rona arrive first and get to the U-Turn. They U-Turn Treasuri & Louisa. :(

Detour: Dragon Horse or Human Bull?

Dragon Horse: Decorate a dragon carriage and once it's approved, ride it to get your next clue.

Human Bull: Transfer rice husks while running in mud and avoiding farmers blocking their way to receive their next clue!

Eric & Rona and Parul & Maggie choose Dragon Horse.

Yvonne & Chloe choose Dragon Horse but are forced to switch because both Filipino teams are doing it.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive and are crushed :( They choose to do Dragon Horse but are also forced to switch.

Treasuri & Louisa arrive and Yvonne & Chloe are still there. They are determined to catch up.

At Dragon Horse, Yvonne & Chloe are attacked by the mud farmers. Chloe is down and yells "WHAT THE FUCK" :lol:

They choose to switch and wait for the other teams :o

I like seeing a U-turn and a Yield on the same leg, and I think it's a first, but this would've been better on an earlier leg.  :tantrum I may be rooting for the underdogs more at this point, but my sympathy is on Trez & Lou. It's as if the leg design is against them. :( I get why the Filipino teams targeted Trez & Lou, but it really looks like the leg design was going against them.

And then, it becomes n F4F. #prediction

Yvonne & Chloe choose to switch and then switch again after seeing Eric & Rona and Treasuri & Louisa.

Treasuri & Louisa are frustrated at the Detour. Louisa throws mud at the farmers :lol:

At the other Detour, Parul & Maggie's horse begins acting up. Parul continuously apologizes. :lol:

At the mud Detour, Yvonne & Chloe struggle. Yvonne's ankle is really hurt and she just crumbles.

Eric & Rona get a check on the other Detour and are denied. Parul & Maggie ask for a check. Denied.

Parul & Maggie are working.

At the mud Detour, TREASURI & LOUISA FINISH IT! They now have to wait for the other teams at Dragon Horse to finish so they can begin it.

I'm in utter shock. This would have been an amazing Final Four leg.

Instead, it's utterly unfair.

I hate this.

I love all the teams left, but this is really just sad.

Was production THAT desperate to have powers used? :res: :res: :res: :res:

Trez & Lou have a chance for 1st had they not been U-turned! :o Meanwhile, the comparison between Yvonne & Chloe's progress with Trez & Lou's was almost unbelievable. :o

After what Trez & Lou are going through, I'm rooting for them to make it past this leg. :hoot: They may have the advantage for being in Indonesia, but if they survive a leg after a Yield and a U-turn, that would be incredibly amazing. Also, this is not just any leg, but the F4!

They said that they're absolutely sad to see Treasuri & Louisa be U-Turned, but they had to do it.

Parul & Maggie are lost on the way to the Pit Stop!

Treasuri & Louisa are emotional but they're happy to have proved a point and stayed friends, and that's all that matters.

And with that, an otherwise phenomenal Final Four leg ends with unfairness and leaves me slightly bitter towards this end. *sighs*

That was so unjusticed!  :tantrum A Yield and a U-turn on the F4 is an utterly awful leg design. Trez & Lou honestly deserved to make it past this leg. :( This penultimate leg had potential, but an awful leg design ruined it. (:;) Words can't express how awful this is for them. :'( It's completely unfair as the twists are pitted against them. :torche

Indonesia usually gets the worst eliminations. :( What coincidence.

I'll comment and rant more about the leg next time.

It wasn't rigged. Let's just say awfully placed.

There is NO WAY IN HELL THAT A UTURN IS BEFORE A DETOUR WTF TARA???????

Just because TAR27 did it once doesn't mean YOU should follow  :groan:

It sucks because otherwise this leg was phenomenal. All the tasks were amazing and I LOVED the TAR8 Switchback. I audibly gasped when I saw it.

Reading the gamerfan09 commentary and I can imagine the Banyuwangi leg has potential to be the great penultimate leg showdown BUT COMPLETELY RUINED BY THE AWFUL LEG DESIGN!!! Seriously Yield and U-Turn on the same leg ESPECIALLY AT THE F4 PENULTIMATE LEG, TARA???


It's lucky that the great tasks and the spectacular F4 teams saved this leg from being TAR24-level awful to the normal awful that cause me on rage and bitter.


Oh ya, Treasuri & Louisa for TARA-AS. This can apply to every TARA5 teams except the first three eliminated teams.

this leg has been a MAJOR turn off after 8 amazing legs. not only they place both Yield and U-Turn on the same leg, but also placed a U-Turn BEFORE detour? and it doesn't stop right there. Both detour sides has limited stations, so when Treasuri & Louisa done the Human Bull detour in FIRST place, they have to wait around 30 minutes doing NOTHING before doing the other side of detour. :res:

i feel like this leg has been designed to screw one team's race. unfortunately, on this case it's Trez & Lou. i may be biased because my country got eliminated, but if it's happen to other teams, i'm sure they will feel the same.

Regardless on the leg-design wise, i would say that the tasks in  this leg by far was one of the best tasks ever on TARA ( i also include Thailand's leg and the previous leg) and TAR franchise. The RB was mental-physical task that really created some drama and inspiration there, it was great to watch teams struggled to lift the rocks and bring them up. And detour was amazing,dragon horse required detail and human bull was mental-physical too. These tasks was over the top.

Unfortunately, the leg design was not get into it. U-turn in f4 was disastrous and adding yield to this leg was adding a tornado into the disastrous place. It was completely unfair... I had no problem actually with u-turn placed before u-turn, but still the leg design was painful to watch......

In this case, i will give D on leg design and A+ on the task....
I hope the crew learn from mistake and not ruin the final leg, cause the final leg is essential...

I may be upset over this leg's design but going online and seeing fans of both Team Indonesia and Team Philippines fighting and slandering Treasuri & Louisa, Eric & Rona, and Parul & Maggie on social media.... it's absolutely disgusting behavior.

I am ashamed. These idiotic and bitter casuals make the US ones seem so tame by default.

I may be upset over this leg's design but going online and seeing fans of both Team Indonesia and Team Philippines fighting and slandering Treasuri & Louisa, Eric & Rona, and Parul & Maggie on social media.... it's absolutely disgusting behavior.

I am ashamed. These idiotic and bitter casuals make the US ones seem so tame by default.


In what social media? Ss please....

If it's true, then let's enjoy it, i must be laugh over these casuals ruining social media like these show down their stupidity...

I think it's expected for casuals to fight about it, but I wasn't expecting it to be worse than the US comments. I'm not risking my eyes on those comments. :peek So shameful indeed.

placed a U-Turn BEFORE detour? and it doesn't stop right there. Both detour sides has limited stations, so when Treasuri & Louisa done the Human Bull detour in FIRST place, they have to wait around 30 minutes doing NOTHING before doing the other side of detour.


What might happend if the u-turn board would be available after the task, as usual - would T&L use it? That might be interesting...

Something I'm frustrated about this episode are bitter fans forgetting how amazing this cast is and instantly wishing ill towards Eric & Rona and Parul & Maggie despite the fact that this episode was nowhere near TAR24 levels of awful in terms of race powers like the "Accidental Alliance".

For the last time, that annoying placement of race powers were PRODUCTION'S FAULT, not the RACER'S. There is no doubt in my mind that Yvonne & Chloe would ALSO have used it as they were 2nd to last.

There really shouldn't have been a race power on the PENULTIMATE LEG  :groan:

Let's just hope next season producer will not put yield or U-turn on the penultimate leg. Let the teams determine their own fate. Like Survivor, there is no hidden immunity idol in F4

OMG.

You guys have said it all...But WTF??

For the first time ever, I am really questioning TAR Production on this. Were this leg's hateful twists really scheduled for this leg or were they thrown in because the previous ones were not used??

The leg tasks were phenomenal.

But PROBLEMS:

Penultimate leg...let the racers control their own fate.

A UTURN following a YIELD?? That is almost immediate death for the affected team. Should NEVER be allowed. Even the pea task does not make up for that.

And A UTURN before the Detour? Makes NO Sense.

Agree also that their should have been enough horses so they did not have to wait. This is the PENULTIMATE LEG...LET THE RACERS DETERMINE THEIR OWN FATE!!

I have no problem with Rona and Eric using the U-turn. But I DO have  a problem with it being on the penultimate leg and in the position it was.

Major love and kudos to Treasuri and Louisa. They NEVER gave up, fought to the bitter end. They are a lock for an ALLSTARS one day in my opinion. Frankly, they got screwed.

I guess the twists this leg would have been more fair if there was more than one team with a target. Trez & Lou just happened to be in a bad position like Tanner & Josh and Brodie & Kurt. At that point it was the most strategic decision to target them.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

People are going to hate me for saying this. But if you did not put yourself in the position to be U-TURN/Yield in the first place, it can't be used on you.

That being said..............................................................

POOR LEG DESIGN. U-TURN before the Detour is just stupid. And U-TURN + Yield is just like, hi, I just stabbed you, do you want me to shoot you too?

Production based drama... but the ones who suffered are the racers who love the race so much.

All of this, pretty much.

You know, I just finished my recap, but I didn't actually think about the U-Turn's placement.  EXCELLENT POINT!  Wow, that would've been a game changer.

I hope I still remember stuff…

The coffee thing was okay.

The roadblock was physically challenging. Eric obviously had the upper hand, while Yvonne was struggling really bad. The only reason Yvonne & Chloe were still 3rd after the roadblock was the fact that Trez & Lou were Yielded. I really like how Louisa used the Yield to her advantage for the roadblock. :hoot: They remained optimistic during the yield, and there was still hope from there even if they finished last.

The U-turn is extremely questionable. It is unusually before the detour, and it will definitely change things had it been after, especially with Trez & Lou finishing 1st in the detour. They had to wait for the Filipino teams to finish the detour before they can perform the other side, and that took some time away from them. The U-turn right before the detour was 'lethally' unfair. The only way Trez & Lou could've avoided elimination with this horrid leg design was if they were 1st at the HoO, or 2nd because Yvonne & Chloe didn't want to use the Yield. The detour was great though, the bull task proved to be hard, yet Trez & Lou finished 1st out of the 4 teams. :o From worst to first in one penultimately challenging task! It really sucked that the pre-detour U-turn ruined their race. The dragon detour was the less physical task obviously, but it required strict detail.

The bean task was nice, but even if the U-turn was after the detour, there's no chance for a team to catch up on that ARI. :groan:

Tasks were great, but the U-turn ruined the whole leg. The slow-motion part with Trez & Lou finding out they were U-turned was "dramatic." :res: I'm pretty sure they weren't allowed to say anything about the horrid leg design being against them, so we only got the word "Impossible!" from Louisa at the pit stop. :torche I'm pretty sure they had much more to say that they couldn't say on TV, or out loud during filming. :( This is the saddest elimination since a long time ago.

Yvonne & Chloe were extremely lucky this leg. The roadblock already made them struggle, and Yvonne was crawling, literally! :o The detour took them too long as well, from what it looks like with the progress comparison between theirs and Trez & Lou's. Also, Chloe was injured! :ascared They had a tough leg for sure!

Parul & Maggie and Eric & Rona were just playing smart. If it was another team from a different country using it, I would've said the same thing. It really boiled down to leg design. We've seen a detour on the penultimate leg during TAR14, and it was a smart move by Tammy & Victor, but I didn't like where it was placed - on the penultimate leg. The same criticism applies for fast forwards. It may be a 50-50 chance, but it's unfair to whichever team winning that thing in the penultimate leg. I myself would never put a Fast Forward, Yield, or U-turn on the penultimate leg in any of my fanfics. Deadline in strictly 9th leg (including EP), at least for me.

There's a lot more I have to say about this season. There were many amazing factors yet many disappointing factors that brought this season together. I'll most likely compile everything by season end.

Also, 2 beauty queen teams in the F3 is just incredible! :o Normally because beauty queens are easily underestimated as the weak teams. I never expected any of those 2 teams to be F3 this season. I thought they'd be early boots, but both teams proved how strong they are even as beauty queens. They are definitely not your ordinary beauty queen teams, and I hope the US TAR can get better FF teams like TAR Asia. :hoot:

I think that's all I can say. ??? I'll move to Trez & Lou's thread now.

It's totally production's fault. It just screams of them wanting to have at least one U-Turn or Yield used on the Race and they decided to just throw them in here.  Maybe even after teams explicitly say they would use it this Leg.

I think the main problems are:
-Yield AND U-Turn on the same Leg
-A Yield or U-Turn on the penultimate Leg
-U-Turn placed before the Detour
-U-Turn on a Limited Stations Detour

Good point platrium, this leg is a major decline of what it seems an amazing season by far, this leg design, including placing race power on penultimate leg and limited station at detour was catastrophic decision by producer, that intend to create stuff of drama that really indeed unfair (luckily the task was divine).... That should be a lesson for producer if they greenlight season 6, or by any TAR franchise if they want to add new fans and viewers and reachs good rating

But looking at F5 on this race is like watching season 11 and season 17 of TARUS (or TARA 1 if need), the FF was unpredictably strong .... First before the race, i thought it would have been MM taem or MF team will go further, really...
The next episodes, i saw Trez and Louisa win 4 legs before ended in Banyuwangi, and the rests of FF dominate the line-up for final... I hope the next season will be as great as this seasons in term of unpredictable cirumstances ( don't mention thw race power at penultimate leg)...

TAR Asia fulfills one wish that I have been dreaming of, now I can tick it off. 3 All-Female Teams in the Final 4. Big surprise is 2 of them are Beauty Queens, very rare for Beauty Queens to go this far and kudos for all them for continuing the legacy of Dustin & Kandice and Brooke & Claire. I predicted that Treasuri & Louisa would be the strongest of all the all-female teams from the start and they did. Definitely alpha-females of the Season. I completely agree with Platrium that the US Version needs stronger F/F teams.

I'm just annoyed because I think Parul and Maggie are not as fun to watch as Trez and Louiz :(

Eric and Rona are such underdogs...

I'm rooting for Philippines to take home the win. Because their audience base is one of the largest, and if their audience base can continue to fuel a season 6, it will be amazing.

Info thanks to GB and the RFF WIki! I asked about powers and the penultimate leg:

Quote
There was a Must-Vote Yield on the penultimate leg of TAR Philippines 2.

 There was a U-Turn on the penultimate leg of TAR14 (Kisha & Jen saying Chinese food orders?), TAR China Rush 3, TAR Norway 2, and TAR France

I am SO glad TAR USA appears to have abandoned this horrendous idea!

The leg was actually pretty awesome bad because of the unexcessive excessive amount of race advantages.

This was one of the best worst F4 legs I have ever seen but the tasks saved everything.

I wish production learn from their mistake if this show airs again.

It would have been great to have an all- FF finale. USA needs to take some notes for better FF teams.

I actually like the PH teams. Chloe and Yvonne are the team I think won't win because of Chloe's injury and how they worked this leg.

such a phenomenal leg <3 just able to watch it lol  :funny:

despite the producer's blunder for putting yield and uturn before the detour, i've never enjoyed penultimate leg like this before. with challenging tasks like this, this is the best penultimate leg that i've seen in a while.

so sad to see treasuri/louisa go :( i already can feel it that they may not go to the finale, but the remaining teams are all entertaining, and i honestly don't mind to see any of them wins, proving that this season features such stellar casts <333
